Why stay here ...

Highlow Farm is a peaceful CL with beautiful, far reaching views of the Peak District National Park. We are within easy reach of Buxton, Ashbourne, Bakewell and many of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire. Chatsworth House is close by  and not only is it one of the most special country houses ever built, but the parkland around it provides some of the most gorgeous walks in the country. We’re also just a short walk from the pub in the middle of Monyash and a stones throw from the Tissington Trail. We are dog friendly and look forward to meeting you.

Outstanding site

Highlow Farm
If you enjoy peace and tranquillity, with only the sound of cows mooing in the background, surrounded by beautiful scenery, this is the site for you. Jo and Tom are delightful, unobtrusive, but extremely helpful hosts. Will we return - YES.

Stunning views and tranquility

Highlow Farm
Originally booked for 4 nights but ended up staying an extra day as we loved it so much (would've stayed even longer but work beckons). There is a more sheltered pitching area surrounded by trees and a more exposed area which gets the best views across the fields though it slopes more so levelling blocks required. We stayed in the more exposed part and it was fields as far as the eye could see - incredibly peaceful! Our neighbours were the loveliest heard of cows who would stick their heads over the wall of an evening to see what we were cooking that night. Jo and Tom are great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. Booking was easy and Jo welcomed us shortly after we arrived and pitched up to our allocated plot. Monyash village is a short walk away and has a great cafe and a pub - both of which do nice food. If you're up for walking a lot or happy to drive/cycle then this is a beautiful base for the surrounding area with Bakewell, Cromford and Matlock not far away. If you rely more on public transport though then the bus service from Monyash is very hit and miss - only one bus a week to Bakewell when we were here. Will definitely be back for longer next time to explore more of the surrounding areas and unwind on this beautiful little site nestled amongst the farms and fields.

Just stayed 2 nights en route home. Lovely views and friendly welcome. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Nice friendly pub nearby with good food. Would happily return.

Short Stay

Highlow Farm
We stayed here for 2 nights in May and can say we weren’t very impressed. We arrived and just presumed the empty pitch was ours as no one came to meet us. About 2 hours later the owner knocked on the door asking who we were. She clearly hadn’t booked us in despite us paying a deposit a receiving confirmation. This was all sorted and she said we could stay on the pitch. Maybe if you are staying here just check before travelling that you are booked in. The pitches are very sloping but they provide blocks to level up. There is nowhere to walk your dog off lead so we went to the park in Bakewell which was very nice. As seems to be getting a lot more common there were 6 caravans on the CL which did make it feel a bit tight. There is also another 5 pitch site next to the CL which was full so plenty of people around. We wouldn’t stay here again.

Fantastic Site

Highlow Farm
Just spent two nights on this lovely site. Jo was a the perfect CL owner very pleasant and helpful. The field was cut short and tidy. The herb garden is a nice touch. Great views and easy walk into Monyash. We will definitely return. Dave and Kim.
