Why stay here ...

Tissington Caravan and Motorhome Site is situated on the limestone way in the beautiful village of Tissington. The site is a one acre level/gentle slope that is open all year. It has three hardstanding pitches, grass pitches, electric hookups, elsan emptying point, drinking water and recycling bins as well as a well-stocked information shed with leaflets to local attractions.

With easy access and only 400 yards to the Tissington Trail, a great location for cyclists and walkers. Tissington has a selection of shops and businesses such as a butchers, sweet shop, candle workshop, plant nursery, gift shop and tea rooms.

The Jacobean hall is open to the public several times throughout the year. There is also a good bus service to Ashbourne and Buxton, passing through other Peak District villages. In close proximity to Dove Dale and less than a 30 minute drive from Bakewell and Matlock, we are a good base for attractions such as the heights of Abraham, Carsington Water and Alton Towers. Booking is essential.

First time here, won't be the last. Amazing location, good pitches with fantastic views. Easy access to the village and dozens of walks. Thoroughly recommended.

Fantastic site!

Tissington Caravan and Motorhome Site
We've just returned from a 4 night stay at this lovely site. Easy to find and our huge hardstanding pitch was clearly marked for us so despite arriving just as it was turning dark we were able to get in and get set up with no fuss. The views from the site are classically Peak District, big skies, rolling fields, stone walls, and stone buildings. Tissington is a beautiful village although at this time of year there wasn't anything open other than the great local butchers just along the lane. Didn't use the van at all during our stay, there are stunning walks from the site in every direction - the Tissington Trail gives an easy 4 miles down to Ashbourne, on another day we went further afield (lots of fields!) across to Ilam, Milldale, and Dovedale. If we had stayed longer we probably would have made use of the bus service to investigate the nearest towns but we were enjoying the walking so much we didn't bother. Would definitely recommend this site and hope to be back again one day.

A Perfect site!!!

Tissington Caravan and Motorhome Site
Wow What a site -this is how to run a CL site nothing is too much trouble lovely relaxed atmosphere Ed and Kat are caravanners themselves which makes a huge difference if you have your own facilities you cannot do better than stay here . They have bookings till November -that really says it all unsurprisingly we are booked for 2022 already even the hailstones !! in May did not detract and looking over a field with calves being born was magical Ed and Kat keep doing what you are doing you are a credit to the BEST CL sites Regards Steve and Jackie and Mason the giant Schnauzer!!!

First Swallows of 2021!

Tissington Caravan and Motorhome Site
Beautiful, peaceful and spacious site. Very well managed and maintained by Ed and Kathryn. Will definitely book again although very little availability until November - what a surprise!!! Fantastic for walking and cycling or just relaxing and enjoying the countryside. Great butchers close by. Access to Tissington trail very easy and the scenery is amazing. The swallows had just arrived and the sun shone for 4/5 days. A great start to our 2021 season and for our first trip after lockdown.

We Will Return !!

Tissington Caravan and Motorhome Site
Lovely site, the pitches have plenty of space in a lovely large field. Hard standing and grass pitches. Very peaceful, great scenery. Just a couple of minutes walk to the butchers, Tissington Trail, and the village. A great find ! Our first time in this part of Derbyshire and with a bit of research before arriving there are many beautiful walks nearby. Before arriving the owners leave a board with your surname on it, on your pitch, if they are not around when you arrive as we found, then they came later in the day to welcome arrivals and sanitize where needed. You need your own facilities. Will certainly be returning soon.
