Why stay here ...

Welcome to Coney Grey Farm

The site which is on a working farm is set in 0.5 acres of land with fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and is open all year round.

The CL is on a very gentle slop with some pitches needing levelling blocks. All pitches are on grass with 16 amp electric hook ups.

There are several public houses about 2 miles that serve meals.

We have a good wide access off the B6013 Chesterfield Road, which links the A610 near Ripley and the A615 at Oakerthorpe.

We are situated in the Amber Valley area  on the outskirts of Pentrich Village - famous for the last Revolution in England in 1817.

There are several public footpaths across the farm. Dogs are welcome but please keep them under control and on a lead when walking them. Children are welcome.

Junction 28 of the M1 is 9 miles away and the A38 is 2.5 miles away in Ripley.

Crich Tramway Village is 4 miles away. For steam train enthusiasts, there is Midland Railway (4 miles) in Butterley near Ripley and others a little further afield.

Matlock, Derby, Mansfield and Chesterfield are a 30 minute drive away. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall, Kedleston Hall and Carsington Water are all about 40 minutes drive away. Belper and Denby Pottery are also not far away.

There is a Golf Club and coarse fishing within 4 miles.

A selection of leaflets on places to visit are available from the farmhouse.

Perfect for visiting the White Peak

We have just spent a four night mid week break at Coney Grey Farm CL. The site is easy to get to by following the route in the CAMC book and the farm is clearly signposted which ever way you approach. Sat Nav wants you to turn off before the farm. Call in at the farmhouse and you will be shown where the field is. The field is on a gentle slope and you should have no trouble in getting the caravan level. I can't see the need for lots of blocks as in another review. We managed fine using just the jockey wheel. Its a large field for just five vans so space is not a problem. Electric hook ups, Fresh water and a waste disposal point are all here. The site is very handy for visiting Belper, Matlock, Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, Peak Rail. Cromford Mills and a delightful one mile Narrowboat cruise on the Cromford canal, pre booking is a must on that one. Also Tissington and Carsington Water are nearby. This is a working dairy farm. Our only fault is the road noise from the distant A38 if the wind is blowing towards the site, if sitting outside, but thats all. A lovely site that we shall be returning to next time we visit the Peak District.

It was ashame to have to go home! Enough said really! Clean, tidy, great views, welcoming and we will definitely be returning. On a slight slope so recommend levelling blocks, but not really an issue. It is a working dairy farm so expect to see the milking cows! Thanks

The views are incredible

We stayed here for one night and we didn't want to leave. This CL is what Caravanning is all about. We stayed on a working cattle farm in the middle of the countryside and the views were breathtaking. The pitches are uneven and blocks are a must but well worth the extra few minutes when setting up. We'll definitely go back.
