Fantastic Site, Amazing Hospitality, Wonderful Memories

Brundcliffe Farm
Perfect in every way, from Barbara and John’s warm friendly welcome on arrival to the immaculate flower borders and manicured grass, Brundcliffe Farm is gem. The site is along side the mostly flat High Peak Trail (excellent for Walking and Cycling) a few miles up the trail you can join the Tissington Trail so you have miles and miles of safe trails to explore. If you want to eat out there is a list of recommended local pubs on the notice board by the water point, you won’t be disappointed and it pays to book a table in advance. Having never stayed on a dairy farm before we asked if it would be possible to see the cows being milked and Barbara proudly took us around, explaining the milking process and showed us their new calves. It’s a family farm and everyone we spoke to was polite, enthusiastic and happy to take time to passionately share life on a dairy farm. Thank you Barbara and John for making our stay amazingly memorable. Stay safe, stay well and we will see you soon, we cannot wait to return.

Brundcliffe Farm
We've been trying to get on to this C.L. for ages and finally cracked it. The wait was worth it. Well situated off the A515 Buxton to Ashbourne road. The turn in leads down a land to the farm and the CL. The C.L. has 3 H/S pitches and 2 Grass ones, although there is sufficient space to put a third unit on grass instead of H/S if you so prefer. The land does slope and there is a plentiful supply of wooden ramps supplied by the owners to assist you in levelling. We were lucky and bagged a pitch in the far corner which is perfectly level and H/S with wondrous views of the farmland. Water, recycling bins and Elsan points are excellent. The owners and their sons occupy the houses adjoining the CL and are on hand to answer any query and with the owners being caravaners themselves have a wealth of knowledge if needed. Both are extremely friendly. They even asked if I wanted a newspaper collecting and delivered done to the caravan step each morning. Never had that elsewhere. The farm is split by the High Peak Trail, used mostly by cyclists but you could walk along it for 4 kms to the Royal Oak at Hurdlow (recommended pub) if you so desire. The Tissington trail can be accessed 2 KMs along the trail so the car can stay on site. If you want walking then Hartington is 5 minutes away and many, many walks available in a fantastic walking county just a short drive away as well. We came away knackered after 8 days of exercise! Downsides? Every CL has one. The only one I can find is that some people (not us) may find farm work noisy and the Cows won't be a respecter of anyone trying to sleep in if they happen to be in an adjacent field. It would be a pity if you felt that way as you should expect such things on a Working Farm. Would we return again? You bet but we may have to wait a while to get on. Be aware that there are many returnees, a sure sign of a good, well run C.L. There is a separate 5 unit area well away from the CL with Hardstanding pitches, a bit closer together but with grass opposite to sit out on, with access to the Trail as well.

Absolutely Splendid!!! The very best CL we have been on during our 28 years membership. Warm welcome, made to feel part of the family, farm tour exc.

Brundcliffe Farm
From being welcomed by Barbara we were made to feel that our holiday success was very important to both her and her husband John. The site was immaculate and had a national park trail running alongside it, so marvellous for walking our dog. When a really bad gale threatened our awning, it saw both Barbara and John helping us to hold it down until my husband could put stronger pegs down. Barbara took us around the farm, explained the milking process, showed us their new calves and a newly born bull named Colonel Tom as it was born on his birthday. This was more than a stay at a CL, it was a real and varied experience and one we highly recommend and intend to repeat. All the very best Barbara and John, you deserve it.

Brundcliffe Farm
This was our first visit to Brundcliffe Farm and what a delightful site it is. Barbara gave us a really warm welcome and helpful tips about our stay. COVID measures were excellent with hand sanitisers by the gate, the bins and the tap. The views are lovely and being right by an entrance to High Peaks Trail (also leading to the Tissington Trail) was a real bonus. The site is beautifully kept and levelling blocks are provided if required. We didn’t need them. Our newspaper was delivered daily and we really appreciated being able to watch the milking process. John and Barbara really seem to enjoy running a CL! Thank you John, Barbara and the family.

Another great stay at the farm

Brundcliffe Farm
Spent another fantastic 8 nights on one of our favourite CL's, always a warm welcome from Barbara and John. What we like about the site is the ease of access to the off road cycle track that passes through the farm, excellent for families with young children. Since our last visit the paving in the chem. waste and bin area have been relaid, the little jobs are always kept on top off on this CL. Fresh eggs available and Barbara will arrange to have your preferred daily newspaper to be collected and delivered to your van.
