Why stay here ...
Our CL is a tranquil site on a small working farm close to Dovedale and the iconic stepping stones at the foot of Thorpe Cloud Hill.
The chocolate box village of Ilam and the National Trust Ilam Hall is only a couple of miles away and the picturesque market town of Ashbourne approx 4 miles. You can stroll across our fields to the local village pub serving both meals and guest ales or take a short walk from the cl to the timeless village of Tissington, where you can enjoy refreshments whilst sat next to the village duck pond.
Alternatively you can be on the Tissington trail within 0.5 mile and enjoy 20 miles or so of safe level cycling along the former Ashbourne to Buxton railway line.
The towns of Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock are all less than half an hour away whilst water sports at Carsington Reservoir are 15 mins.
Alton Towers is approx 20 minutes away.
The beautiful country houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are also only half an hours drive.
A public footpath crosses the CL which takes you onto endless miles of walks through the stunning scenery of the Peaks and Dales.
The site itself is a part sloping field with electric hook-ups and plenty of space for awnings etc. There is an adjacent grassed area for children to play safely whilst still within view of your pitch.
Fresh farm eggs from our hens are available daily and our own reared pigs producing the best bacon and sausage ever is also available subject to availability.
Our CL is certainly a place to relax whilst listening to the sheep bleeting and take in the beautiful view from your caravan with the only disturbance being a 1930's Tiger Moth Biplane giving pleasure flights over Dovedale or the Hot air balloons taking off from just down the lane.
Dogs are welcome.
Motor homes - please enquire whether ground suitable in winter months.
Some sloping pitches
