Friendly CL in a perfect location.

Shepherds Flat Farm
We stayed here for five nights the Second week in August 2023. As suggested by Glennie we ignored the directions in the book and came in via Foolow and not Eyam, about a mile further up the main road on the right. Much easier as Eyam gets quite busy with parked cars so is a pain if towing a caravan. As requested on arrival, stop at the entrance and knock on the farmhouse door. Lovely welcome from host Glennie who will give you all the gen. If Glennie is working a note is left on the gate as to which pitch to go on if it's busy. The site slopes more than the cover photo shows and unfortunately we had pitch 3 which slopes both ways. However with the use of ramps and blocks we managed to almost get level. Too uneven to put the awning out though. Next day we moved to pitch 1 as it became vacant as it is almost level. You need a double electric lead for this pitch as it's on the opposite side of the field, Glennie provides extra leads should you need them. For information, Pitch 1,2&5 are fairly level. Pitch 3 very uneven. Pitch 4 sloping but not too bad. Water pressure is very high and it's great to be able to fill an aquaroll in a couple of minutes. Elsan point is in the corner of the field and is quite adequate. This CL is in such a great position for visiting and walking the Peaks, waterfalls and Edges, plus all the other attractions nearby. It is also very quite for a working farm. There is a waterfall by the entrance to the farm that runs when there has been a lot of rain, however it's in an old small quarry and is quite precarious to climb down to. Just go a few yards down a track to the left of the entrance and you'll see a small gate on the left. It's very steep and muddy from the gate down to the falls. On the whole we thought this was a great value CL at £16 per night Inc EHU although prices will be going up next year. We'll definitely be returning.

Peaceful and relaxing

Shepherds Flat Farm
Warm welcome on arrival. Site is set back from road so very quiet with lovely views over the countryside. Each pitch has EHU and there are 2 water points along with elsan disposal. Field is sloping but you can pitch on opposite side of field which is less of a slope. Owner has extension leads available for EHU. Eyam museum is worth a visit and pick up a map which shows walks of the village and surrounding area. Eyam is about 30 minutes walk but its up hill on the way back. Closet pub is 15 minute walk in opposite direct on a reasonably flat road.

Very relaxing, beautiful views, great welcome

Shepherds Flat Farm
Spent a lovely weekend at Eyam. There’s hardly any light pollution here so we enjoyed a relaxing evening sat outside the caravan, with a couple of drinks, looking at the stars. Glennie welcomed us onto site and was always friendly. Nice walk into Eyam, great pubs nearby.

Hidden Gem

Shepherds Flat Farm
Great value. Quiet,secluded. Good access and friendly welcome Yes, the site is slightly sloping but the owners have lots of boards/blocks so levelling no problem. They have extra electric cables so you don't have to park under the trees if you don't want. Elsan point adequate. 2 water taps and electric to each pitch. If there has been rain then check out the waterfall at the end of the drive (ask owners for directions - it's a hidden gem!) Would certainly visit again.

Peaceful site

Shepherds Flat Farm
Warm welcome, very helpful, beautiful cl site. Owners were eager to please even though my requests for oxygen delivery were quite complicated. Quiet, with wild life and farm animals around, good dining in places close by, Miners Inn and Coolstone restaurant. Looking forward to going there again.
