Why stay here ...

The site is situated on a small upland sheep farm adjacent to Lathkill Dale - an area of outstanding natural beauty and tranquility, rich in flora and fauna. The CL enjoys stunning views across open and unspoiled countryside.

The site is on a lawned area and although it is slightly sloping, the pitches (4 of which are hardstanding), are largely level, and all have electric hook-up.

The farm is ideally located for walkers with many footpaths accesible.

The villages of Over Haddon and Monyash, both have good 'eating' pubs and are within 2 miles. The famous market town of Bakewell is 3 miles away. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are slightly further. A regular bus service can be accessed from the stop 3/4 mile away.

The High Peak, Tissington, and Monsal trails are all within 4 miles, and all provide cycle hire facilities.

We are sorry but electric cars cannot be charged on this CL.

True gem

Mill Farm
One of the best cl's we've stayed on! Beautiful views, better hardstandings than the club site's, peace and tranquility, extremely well cared for which blends in to the surrounding landscape. Walkers/hikers paradise with access to lathkill Dale a short distance straight from the site which leads to many Beautiful villages ,we hiked over 30 miles to Monyash, Bakewell, Over Haddon and Youlgreave during our stay.Access to the site is not a problem with a little common sense and wouldn't consider it a problem at all!the lane leading to the site is fairly uneven etc but it's a countryside hideaway so wouldn't expect any other and definitely isn't a problem with care and attention. Absolutely nothing to fault we loved it!

Beautiful but access is not easy

Mill Farm
It does what it says on the tin in lots of respects,beautiful scenery,easy access to lathkill dale and very quiet. The access when you get to the bottom of the lane is frankly not acceptable on a site that has supposedly gotten camc approval. Sharp,not wide enough for a caravan,turn into the gate on your right hand side and then you need to manoeuvre in and out of a field gate to get in. We’re relatively experienced but in the end we had to unhitch and turn van around. Same experience for a lorry driver who had arrived before us, not something you want to do after a long drive! No one arrived at any time during the week to greet us,toilet not working at all. Unfortunately the access issue means we won’t return which is a shame as with a little planning it could be resolved. Perhaps the club should be returning to some cls to ensure that they comply with the standards set. After all we members are paying for these facilities.

Superb!

We stayed here 21st - 23rd July 2020. A great site, in a beautiful location, owned by lovely people who keep it looking immaculate. Superb walking in Lathkill Dale nearby. Absolutely nothing to criticise and I hope that we get to return soon. If the club are looking for a model CL site then I suggest that they use this one.

Lovely CL

Mill Farm
What a lovely site, even though the weather was indifferent, it is still a place to enjoy a holiday. The site itself is very well kept, short grass and no grass cuttings in your caravan. The waste and chemical toilet disposal is in one place with hand sanitizer. The bins are for your rubbish and recycling. Just outside the gate your walks can begin and they are just beautiful what an area just stunning. The owner greeted us when we arrived to tell us where everything was. All in all a fabulous site

A wonderfully quiet site with a friendly welcome set in beautiful countryside with excellent walking on its doorstep. Once visited you will most probably return.
