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.

It's a Keeper

We have just returned from Highlow CL in Monyash. In our terms it is definitely what we call 'a keeper' as we will be returning and can recommend to others. The facilities are good for a CL (no MH waste disposal yet) but it is a relatively young site and it's being developed. It's owned by a lovely couple Jo and Tom who are helpful, knowledgeable about the area and very friendly without being intrusive. This lovely site just oozes tranquillity and the views are absolutely amazing. We stayed just to one side of the CL and will happy return to this pitch regardless of the fact it needs to mature a little. Lots and lots of walking in the area and directly from the site. Monyash is approx 1 mile away (little bit of road walking.) Pub wasn't open but nice cafe.  The High Peak Trail is approx 1 mile (opposite direction) great for Walking and Cycling. You can hire a bike on the trail or walk, as we did, to the Royal Oak Pub which served excellent meals. You can also cycle or walk to the Tagg Dairy for Ice Creams and Snax; again we highly recommend. You've probably guessed that we rate this CL highly. It's going to be a regular for us. Thank you again Tom and Jo. We will be seeing you soon.

A thoroughly enjoyable few days.

This is an excellent CL close to many beautiful spots in the Peak District. Equidistance between Buxton and Ashbourne. With the town of Bakewell about 8 miles away. The site is well kept with nicely mown grass. There is a lovely tea shop in nearby Monyash that sell scrummy scone and home made cakes.

First outing since lockdown @ Lovely Highlow Farm.

Our first venture out since October last year, and we chose one of our favourite cls in Highlow Farm. With an easy hour drive from our storage site you find yourself in the Derbyshire peak district, with amazing views, ample space to pitch up & and sit with a drink of your choice & just take in the beautiful landscapes. Jo & Tom make everyone welcome to their super working farm 5 van site, easy access to Bakewell, Buxton & the Chatsworth Estate. The choice to visit & enjoy the many Derbyshire venues aound the area are endless. This visit was our first without a beloved Archie a rescue Westie, but it brought back lovely memories of our time there last year.

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*
