Why stay here ...

Bassettwood Farm is located in a very quiet area with lovely views on the edge of the picturesque village of Tissington, in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District. We have 2 hard standings in a separate area away from the main field in a small fenced off paddock. Tissington is close to the market towns of Ashbourne, Bakewell, the popular village of Alstonefield, Dovedale, Ilam, Milldale, Hartington, Carsington Water (ideal for fishing and sailing) and the Manifold Valley.

Lynn and Gavin welcome you to Bassettwood and guests are encouraged to enjoy the many scenic walks or the 20 mile long Tissington Trail for walking and cycling. Enjoy the peacefulness and see beautiful sunrises and amazing sunsets. B & B accommodation is available at Bassettwood Farm House and there is a tearoom open between 12:00 to 17:00 Friday - Sunday.

Bassettwood farm is an ideal base for a short break or longer holiday. The Historic market town of Ashbourne is only a 6 minute drive away. Tissington Hall is just a short stroll from the farm.

At Bassettwood we are involved in the design and creation of one of the wells for the annual Tissington well dressing which takes place for a week in May every year.

Tissington is one of the prettiest villages in this area of the Peak and is also a convenienct point of access to the Tissington Trail. It is therefore a popular place on a summer weekend.

The village lies just off the main Buxton-Ashbourne road and has been the estate village of the FitzHerbert family since the 1460s, whose hall erected in 1609, stands in the centre of the village. The village is delightfully laid out with plenty of space and buildings which were mostly erected in the early 19th century. It has an imposing southern approach via a grand gateway and an avenue of lime trees.

Tissington, based in the Peak District, Derbsyhire is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.

Tissington village is home to a wonderful range of shops and businesses which include a popular tea room, gift shop, traditional sweet shop, butchers and candle shop.

Nearby, within under an hour's drive you will find Haddon Hall, Ilam Hall, Chatsworth House, Sudbury Hall, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall and the lovely, traditional market town of Bakewell, famed for its Bakewell Tart.

For the children (and adults!) Alton Towers, Carsington Water, Go Ape! and Gullivers Kingdom are all within easy reach by car.

If you love cycling there are miles and miles of traffic free and family cycle routes, noteably the Tissington Trail which can be found 2 minutes from the farm. Bicycles can be hired from Ashbourne Cycle Hire in the centre of the town.

Lovely Farm CL

A very pleasant stay in a beautiful area located very close to the pretty village of Tissington and the Tissington Trail. Lovely site with well kept service points. We stayed on the hardstanding in front of the farmhouse which we had to ourselves. Very welcoming owners, would definitely return.

A lovely spot with great views close to Tissington and the trail

We came to this CL for the first time in July and we'll definitely be back! Mrs Maule handled our on-line booking (via email) very efficiently and we had a friendly and helpful welcome from her husband. It's a very tranquil site with wonderful views and a short bike (or slightly longer walk) ride into Tissington which is a charming place to visit and from here you can access the wonderful Tissington Trail. All the facilities are very well set up and easy to use, we don't use our TV when we're away but we heard the signal was pretty good. You can access walks/ bike rides directly from the CL.

Good visit despite the rain!

Gavin and Lynn are welcoming, yet unobtrusive hosts and Bassettwood is a valuable addition to the CL network. It's not been up and running that long and the latest improvement is the addition of 2 hard standing pitches - more enhancements on the way, I'm sure! The very pretty village of Tissington can get rather rammed with visitors, but Bassettwood, only 0.9 of a mile away, reached via a good quality tarmac roadway, through through open fields of sheep and cows, is a tranquil hideaway with great views. With the 4 electric hookups provided off one post, it's worth noting that the single non-EH pitch has the most space from potential neighbours. Having said that, for the 9 nights we were there, we shared with one other caravan for 6 and had the last 3 to ourselves - lovely!

Excellent CL site

This site is in an extremely pleasant country area yet close to nearby Tissington and the Tissington cycle trail. The trail can be reached three quarters of a mile from the site along a tarmac lane. My wife and I stayed here for three nights with our young grandsons this month (August 2019) and there was plenty of room for them to run around. The site does not have a toilet or shower block but has all other facilities which suited us just fine. The site is very clean and tidy and the hosts were very welcoming and friendly. We would highly recommend this site and no doubt will stay here again.

Excellent

Arrived to a warm welcome from the owners (and their donkey in adjacent field). Perfect location for Southern Peak District in a quiet and picturesque place. Sampled a cream tea in the sites’ tearoom. Superb!!! Highly recommended
