Stay at Torgate Farm

Join us for an overnight stay camping a stone's throw from our farm shop and wake up to our amazing views of Shutlingsloe and Macclesfield Forest

Back to Basics 'Wild Camping'

Stay overnight in our back to nature camping field surrounded by spectacular views next to a choice of footpaths

Enjoy camping like it used to be here at Torgate Farm, nestled between Macclesfield Forest and the famous Cat and Fiddle, where we offer proper old-fashioned 'wild camping' close to nature.   Here you can experience the best of traditional camping in our lushest fields that are reserved for visitors in the summer and revert back to farm use for the rest of the year.   

Children can explore within the safety of the designated camping fields or you can enjoy the beautiful countryside on the nearby footpaths before you sit back and relax drinking in the views next to your campfire.  You might see our cows or sheep in the neighbouring fields or say hello to our chickens, ducks or guinea fowl that roam the farmyard.

There's plenty of space in our unmarked pitches, just bring your tent, campervan or small caravan (contact to confirm) and a fire to sit round (off ground please) and recharge your batteries after a day out in the local countryside whilst enjoying the spectacular views of the surrounding hills.   We welcome anyone looking to enjoy a countryside retreat whether couples, families or small groups (please contact us directly to confirm).

We offer a unique chance to get away from it all whilst also being within walking distance of some real local gems.   You'll be spoilt for choice with walking or cycling routes from the door and after a busy day out and about you can enjoy cooking up a feast. We are also walking distance from several lovely country pubs or the Peak View tearooms (and even a distillery!).
