Hammocking in the Peak District

In our latest inspection we were awarded 3 pennants. Which we’re thrilled by. It’s lovely to see our hard work being recognised, with an award no less… We were praised for our rustic fencing and introduction of superfast wifi. But what we’re most proud of is the description of our well maintained and lush camping space, which has been the overnight stay for over 100,000 DofE visitors over the years, here’s to the next 100,000!
Pindale Farm: An absolute dream for D of E Groups.
June 22nd 2021
At Pindale Farm we love D of E groups. So much so that we are converting our Powder House into a D of E leaders hut, complete with WiFi. In addition to our barn accommodation, we have dedicated camping areas for D of E groups away from the public camping grounds, where there will be no vehicles in the field with the tents. To top it off, we now have a freshly resurfaced car park and new high speed WiFi system!
