'Piqued' Interest

Broadmeadow Farm CL
We tend to use the Club’s CL network because of their intimacy, and often more rural appeal. Broadmeadow Farm CL is no exception, what is rather unique is that all the pitches are fully serviced, with their own dedicated fresh water taps and Grey Waste drain, a point other reviewers have highlighted. The very friendly and approachable site owner, Nicola, maintains the site in immaculate condition, the views are spectacular, with several walks directly from the site, Alport and Youlgreave are within easy walking distance to visit and for a quick top up of essentials. Haddon Hall, who’s estate the farm partly sits on, is also well worth a visit. Chatsworth House and Estate are less than 5 miles away, and there’s a couple of cycle trails nearby for the more energetic. We would very much hope to pay more visits to this gem of a CL, which is peace and quiet personified, even given the fact it’s a working farm. If there could be a site upon which CL’s were to be modelled, this would be it, and it’s strange how, even after a few days, the ambiance of the place remains so strong.

"Charming"

Broadmeadow Farm CL
Wonderful little cl site, owner very polite and helpful. Tap next to electric hookup, Great walks around surrounding area (Lathkil Dale, Youlgreave, Haddon Hall, Etc) but sadly only had a one night stay (15/08/2020) but we shall be back later in the year. Great site if you want to walk to Bakewell its pretty much central to all the above locations. We had a campervan and did not find any issues with the roads leading to the cl site.

Good campsite

Broadmeadow Farm CL
Lovely campsite, well kept and quiet. Wonderful to have full facilities at each pitch, water electricity and drainage. The only downside was that the TV reception was stated as being ‘good’ when it was actually nonexistent. Other campers on site said they didn’t get a reception either. When approaching its best to come in from the B5056 and not through Alport as the road is very winding and not suitable for caravans

Just what was needed!

Broadmeadow Farm CL
This site in spite of being on a working farm is so quiet only the occasional car going up / down the lane and the odd tractor.It is very well situated for access to Bakewell ,Matlock , Matlock Bath Cromford and various other places of interest .If you are prepared to walk there is a lovely walk from the site down into Lathkill Dale, you can make it as long or short as you wish but be prepared for hills after all this is Derbyshire. the site is well kept with grass cut regularly. Only a couple of points 1. there are some ruts in grass where the electrics/water supply have been put in so be careful not to trip or twist an ankle , 2. why is it more expensive to stay for less than a week £14 a night if you stay 7 nights or more or £ 16 a night for less than 7 nights.I really can't see what difference it makes how long your stay is.
