Why stay here ...

Our CL is a quiet, secluded site nestling beside the High Peak trail (a former railway) now very popular with walkers and cyclists and we have direct access to it off our site. A five minute cycle ride brings you to the Tissington Trail. The site has part hard standing and spacious lawned level pitches complete with electric points, with attractive views across the surrounding countryside. Arbor Low Stone Circle is 1 mile away. We are centrally positioned for many beautiful river walks including Dovedale, Lathkill, Monsal and Wolfscote Dale. From the site you can often observe wild Ducks, Curlew, Lapwings, Moorhen and Geese.

Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Lyme Park and Kedleston Hall are all within easy reach. Coarse lake fishing may be available upon request and is available on site.

Please note: We do not allow heaters in awnings on this site.

Great little site, fabulous walking

Newhaven Lodge Farm
Lovely location in the heart of the White Peak. Pro’s - - Access is easy from the main road, easy to find, well signposted - Couldn’t be closer to the walking trails, the High Peak Trail is through a gate at the corner of hte site. The Tissington trail connects about half a mile away along this. - One of the nicest walks I’ve done in ages starting in Hartington, less than 10 minutes away by road, or 3-4 miles walking. (Circular walk down Beresford Dale and Wolfscote Dale, up Biggin Dale and across the fields and lanes back to Hartington. Start and finish from the farm shop - takeaway coffee and homemade cakes - path past the public toilets) - Friendly owners who visit daily and happy to chat. Helpful with local information. Cons (all minor) - The site is grass and a little bumpy in places. It was very wet when we stayed and at least on car/ caravan had issues getting out, although they managed it in the end with lots of damage to the grass. - The road is nearby (see pro’s) - although a couple of fields away it is a busy road with traffic all day including lorries. Not noisy, but there in the background. - Isolated spot. Unless you are a walker you need to take your car/ moho to get anywhere. But that’s true of a lot of CL’s and for some of us it’s why we like them.

Holiday

We wanted to re-visit the Peak District but wanted to avoid the all singing (sometimes expensive) Club sites. Thank goodness for the Kirkhams who provide this fabulous CL at Newhaven Farm. We loved the welcome and the way in which we were instantly made to feel at home, even getting to the milking parlour for some reminiscence of days gone by as a dairyman, it was great. One of the fiercest thunderstorms we have witnessed for a long time engulfed us on our second night, Graham came to see if we were all ok the following morning. The setting of this CL is super, the sight of the swifts ducking and diving, and the panoramic view was beautiful. Ease of access for us to the Tissington Trail for walking was great, and the Hartington Stilton, a must. We really appreciated our time spent here a site that is so well placed for visits to Chatsworth, Buxton and much more. The Kirkham's made us feel so welcome we will undoubtedly be back. We met a lovely couple from the Wirral and enjoyed their company on site (not long enough) That's what we enjoy most about CL's, the camaraderie that one becomes part of. The Kirkhams have got it just right on this beautiful CL in the Peak District, Thank you for a great week.

Simple, functional, nice.

Newhaven Lodge Farm
Clean, simple and the essentials work perfectly. Smallish grassy area with pitches well spaced out and clearly marked. Good electricity points. Pond area is fenced off in case anyone is worried about dogs / kids. There are now two hard-standing pitches. Easy access farm track. The site is right next two an old railway trail so great for walking / cycling, although there is the occasional dog walker cutting through the site from the trail. Friendly owners checked we were okay then left us to it. We were after a simple site with good access and that's exactly what it is. The road noise is actually very minimal - you had to listen for it to hear it and there are pleasant views around, with no eyesores or issues with anything going on nearby.

Perfect

Newhaven Lodge Farm
Had a great 4 night stay here. Loved the fact there was access to miles of cycle track on our doorstep. Ideally placed for trips to all sorts of places, for us Ashbourne, Buxton, Bakewell. Owner very welcoming and informative and extremely helpful when we got lost finding the place. Beware when approaching though, it can be easily missed, my sat nav took me to the wrong side of the road, directions perhaps needs to be a little clearer. The site is right off the A515 but traffic noise was minimal and did not bother us whatsoever. Ground is a little uneven in places but nothing dramatic. I would definitely recommend this place for others wishing to explore the Peak District. I am sure we will return. Thanks for having us!

Absolutely lovely!

Newhaven Lodge Farm
Just stayed a couple of nights on this site and thought it was fantastic! Pitches clearly marked and well spaced out. We arrived a little bit later than others but got a great pitch in the far corner. Well maintained lovely peaceful site. Access directly to the High Peak Trail for easy dog walks. Owners visible but not intrusive - exactly what we wanted. Thank you for a lovely break!
