Peak campsite opens new facilities for disabled

More people can get close to nature and enjoy staying and sleeping in the Peak District countryside, thanks to new accessible camping facilities.

An accessible camping pod has been installed at the Peak District National Park’s North Lees campsite, near Hathersage.

Close to woodland and a stream, the comfortable wooden pod has been carefully planned and equipped in partnership with Accessible Derbyshire co-founders Jane Carver and Gillian Scotford.

North Lees property manager Rebekah Newman said: “The camping pod is accessible for people with a range of disabilities and would also be ideal for older people with mobility issues. The beauty of the location is that it’s right next to the stream at the edge of the woodland so even if you don’t go anywhere else it’s a nice place to just be.”

The Peak District National Park arranged for the equipment to be serviced by Sheffield-based specialists Clark & Partners before installation. Accessible shower and toilet facilities are close by and can be reached via a gently sloping path.
