Why stay here ...

Whitehouse Farm caters for up to 5 caravans or camper vans per night and now has two hard standing pitches available for use (the CL will be increasing the number of hard standing pitches available later this year). It is located in a secluded field in the hamlet of Heathcote, about 1 mile from Hartington. The Tissington Trail is less than 200m away, which is brilliant for cycling. Bicycles can be hired from the tiny village of Parsley Hay located less than 2 miles away. Walkers will enjoy the variety of scenic walks that can be taken direct from the site itself.

The site is also about 10 miles from The Monsall Trail. This trail follows the path of the former Midland Railway from Blackwell Mill cottages to the Coombs Viaduct, about 1km past the former Bakewell station. For the most part the trail follows the path of the River Wye, offering some spectacular scenery for those who follow this route. The overall length of this trail is around 20km.

At the centre of some amazing scenery!

We really enjoyed a short stay last weekend. The Site is at the centre of some amazing scenery. The walking cannot be bettered, Wolfscote Dale, Beresford Dale etc etc. Last weekend was stormy and very windy, we even had overnight snow. It is to the credit of the CL that we were able to drive away from the snow without any difficulties. We must all be grateful that we have access to CLs such as Whitehouse Farm. All the services and facilities are fine. I think this will be even better in the summer so will definately be back in a few months. Thanks for a lovely visit.

Would have stayed longer had the weather been kinder to us.

Booked for four nights at the end of Feb when we had the warmest Feb weather, just our luck that it changed in the first week of March when we arrived in Heathcote. This lovely CL on a small Farm in the lovely village of Heathcote, was ideally placed for long walks with our greyhound had the weather not been very windy with horizontal rain and the threat of snow on our planned leaving date. It was with heavy heart that we decided to cut short our stay, but we did console Richard with promises that we would return in the better weather as his CL offers us everything we could want. The services are conveniently placed on the perimeter of the walled field that the pitches are in. Great views from the site which included seeing an early evening Barn Owl out on his hunt! It's ideally placed for walks on the Tissington trail and lots of other walks from the site or a short ride away. Definately one that we will return to.

Quite site nice views

Booked this site pitch after viewing photos on line. was a little disappointed with the owners as we were just left to find our own way round. The information , signage, and notice board could do with an update! The owners seam more interested in there holiday accommodation that is set up.

Comment from the CL Owner:

I am sorry to hear that you didn’t find us welcoming that certainly wasn’t our intention. We pride ourselves on being relaxed and informal, which most cl users are very happy with, however we will bear your comments in mind. Thank you for staying with us. Janet

Fine CL for Walking and Cycling

Difficult to add to the reviews already posted but just spent four nights at this fairly compact CL. Five fairly level hardstanding pitches in a row, easy access to the usual water, waste water, chemical toilet disposal and recycling bins. Ideal for walking and cycling - public footpath straight from the access road and the Tissington Trail a short ride up the road. Lovely late autumn break, thanks.

Another good one

We stayed here for a few days as we needed to be in Hartington over a weekend. The grass part of the site was very "squidgy" and with our outfit couldn't avoid going on it. No problems with any services, Owners were away and we'd paid in advance so had no cause to see anyone. Entry to the site with a 24' twin axle caravan is straightforward. Leaving the site would have been problematic if someone else hadn't already demolished the wall. The lane isn't quite wide enough to turn the 'van out of the site. If Richard rebuilds the wall and makes the gateway 18" wider the problem will be resolved.
