Great CL... shame about the rain!

Lovely little CL with beautiful far reaching views, although we only discovered these on our last morning after nearly 48 hours of rain... As described in the details, some of the pitches are sloping but Jo & Tom provide a great boxful of blocks which made all the difference and easily allowed us to get level. A box of levelling blocks is a simple but really helpful idea especially when the ground is extremely wet - we were able to select some big blocks that didn't disappear into the grass. Jo's very friendly and welcoming and was quick to volunteer information on a local road closure which was helpful and saved us a few wasted miles. I have no doubt Tom is too but we only met Jo during our visit! Ashbourne, Bakewell, Buxton, Matlock and Chatsworth are all in easy reach and provided some escape from the ongoing monsoon. We'd thoroughly recommend this site and look forward to our return. Many thanks, Jo & Tom!

Return to Highlow Farm

Just back from our second stay at this lovely Derbyshire cl. We found this little gem back in June & had just a 3 night stay , but we had a full week this time. Ideally situated between Bakewell & Buxton with an excellent choice of places to visit , the weather was varied with sunny spells at the beginning of our stay , some high winds & rain last night and a wet pack up this morning. We had a nice trip out / walk around Teggs Nose park near Macclesfield & Knutsford for shopping & Tatton Park , visit to Chatsworth & a number of meals at local dog friendly pubs. I did the walk from site to a local landmark The Magpie lead mine , 6 miles round trip through quite country lanes & met a couple from a little further away also there.... from West Virginia USA amazing who you meet. All in all a well recommended cl in a lovely area of the peak district, Jo & Tom make every visitor extremely welcome. 5*

Delightful

We stayed on this delightful site for 4 nights(not long enough). It is quiet, well kept and has excellent views of the surrounding countryside. It is also very well placed for visiting the many attractive towns in the area and there are many lovely walks close by. Jo gave us a very warm welcome and was most helpful when we discovered the loss of the remote for our motor-mover. She scoured the farm even after we had left. Thank you Jo, the site is a real credit to you. We hope to return at some time in the not too distant future.

Awesome!

I don’t usually write reviews but had to make an exception in the case of this CL. Was due to stay here in July but had to reschedule due to work commitment. So glad we could come later in the year as we were not disappointed. Warmly greeted by the owner Jo. Pitch had stunning views. Levelling blocks available from site. Recycling bins all well labelled. Can’t decide which was nicer - the site or the owner? 😁

Lovely adults-only site

Very easy access to this peaceful site, well off the main road. All caravans had pleasant views through the trees, to the beautiful valley beyond. Good facilities, with rubbish and toilet emptying nicely tucked away out of view. Water point very convenient. Jo is always available and very helpful, and keeps the site in immaculate condition. Highlow Farm is well-placed to visit all the lovely Derbyshire market towns. Dogs are welcome on this site, but as we do not have a dog, we would have appreciated other caravanners observing the CC rule of "dogs on a lead on site". Pity that so many think that the rules don't apply to them! We would certainly return to this CL.
