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. A loo with wash basin (cold water only) is available for member's use.

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.

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

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.

Lovely site overall, a few tweaks would polish it off!

Enjoyed our stay here, it is a lovely site with nice views. The main feature is the location and access to walks as well as close proximity to Bakewell and Chatsworth etc. We had a friendly welcome and found the site to be well kept. It would be a 5 star for me with a few tweaks, not sure why there is no recycling at all, seems odd now. We bought our recycling home as there is just one large dumpster for all waste. Maybe we missed something? The access to and from the site is very tight and does take a bit of manoeuvring especially on exit. Don't park up too close to the gate on arrival either, it's a very tight turn and then the gate opens out towards you. It would be good to have more details of the access available but they are mentioned in previous reviews as well. There is a toilet for use which is clean, it has a cold water tap but no soap or hand towel. Good waste disposal for grey water and chemical toilet with clear notices on not dumping grey water anywhere else. The pitches share an electric point for 4 vans then one off to the side. There is one water mains for all vans. The row of 4 vans is snug though the field itself is more spacious, just very uneven so not usable for hitching up with more space. We had an enjoyable stay, friendly neighbours, nice views and good location. Access is a slight challenge and lack of recycling is just at odds with everywhere else.

So quiet. Shh!

Just returned from 2 nights at Mill Farm and feeling very relaxed. The sign on the gate tells you to park up and pour yourself a glass of wine and that is all the welcome we need. I had a slight problem with my hook up cable which was too short to reach the box from the pitch I was on. The owner kindly allowed me to borrow a longer one. That’s my fault, I will get a longer cable, I’m new to this. On the first day we walked west along Lathkill Dale to the Bulls Head in Monyash and on the second we walked east along the dale to Over Hadden for a drink at the Lathkill Hotel. Both great walks for our dog Winston who slept soundly both nights. We had a lovely time and hope to return soon.
