Why stay here ...

Whitehouse Farm caters for up to 5 caravans or camper vans per night. 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.

What can I say??

We really should keep this little gem of a site to ourselves. Just had a 4 day stay there in weather which could have been better but that's not the sites fault. The site is within easy walking distance of Hartington (lovely village with 2 pubs and a few shops) which is about one mile away(definitely need a torch if going at night). Tissington trail is on the doorstep. Scenery and walking is fantastic and the site facilities are good. Warm welcome and great help when needed from both Richard and Janet. Will definitely be back at some future point, probably in summer, when this site will be glorious. Thanks to both Richard and Janet

Peaceful

We've just had a lovely 3 nights at Whitehouse Farm. Access is easy from the local road network, and the gateway to the site is large and easy to manoeuvre through. The site has 5 hard standing pitches, with drinking water, and waster disposal close by in the same field. The bins are located in a nearby barn. It was good to see that covid secure procedures were in place, including contactless check in, and hand sanitiser at all the water points and bins. The location is ideal in that it's completely peaceful, yet near enough to the road network to be able to travel around. If you want to walk instead the Tissington Trail can be accessed from near the site, along with plenty of other footpaths. We'd happily recommend the site, and will certainly visit again.

A great location

Had a 7 night stay in October 2020. The CL was busy but Richard Mason even took the trouble to mow the site between showers. There are 5 hard standings and electric is close by each van. The black waste goes into a sceptic tank which can be unnerving when the waste doesn't disappear as quickly as expected but it was perfectly clean. Richard had installed Sanitizer on all facilities along with PIR activate solar lights which is handy when the water needs refilling at night!!! Although free Wifi is advertised it is difficult to access it as the signal is poor. We shall be returning next year when the weather is kinder. Thanks Richard

A lovely quiet site in the beautiful Peak District. Easy and quick access by foot or by cycle to the adjacent Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail. Amazing scenery. Will be back!

Lovely CL

Just back from a marvellous midweek break and a perfect location for our first stay in the beautiful Peak District. Richard gave us a warm welcome on arrival and the site is well set out and maintained. Numerous local walks from site and we walked back from Hartington numerous times after visits to the local pubs; torch essential and we had hi viz jackets too.
