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.

LISTEN TO THE SILENCE

Whitehouse Farm
Wow.. The quietest site we have ever been to.. Absolutely no background noise what so ever.. A great little CL.. We stayed for 3 nights in our caravan over August Bank holiday 21. Easy walking access to the Tissington Trail.. Great walk both ways along this old railway line and lovely walks over the fields too if you prefer, The site consists of 5 small hard standings with decent grass around them.. The site has good clean water access ; decent toilet disposal system into the septic tank and grey waste get put in the longer grass at the bottom of the site. Some beautiful villages in the walkable / cycleable locality (Hartington; Tissington) and even more a short drive away such as Ashford In The Water and the small town of Bakewell, We took our 3 dogs and as expected the Tissington Trail was busy but quietened down considerably later on in the afternoon enough to let the dogs walk off lead same on The Monsal Way. Loved our stay here and adored the sound of silence.

Don’t drive on the grass!

Whitehouse Farm
Very pleasant owners, Tissington trail close by (easiest access by bike not down the public footpath but back to lane top, turn left and a few hundred yards the road bridges over the trail with an incline down to it from the road). Motorhomes fill with water in the lane before entering field over the wall with provided long hose. Motorhome access to grey waste not possible without long waste pipe extension hose as it requires driving on the grass. DO NOT DRIVE ON THE GRASS! I got stuck in August and had to be towed out by tractor! We got one of the 2 pitches with the amazing view. The middle pitches seem hemmed in and no view, a shame really as a redesign of the hard standings and removal of a couple of the smaller trees would give everyone that amazing view over the valley, it’s like where the Hobbits live in Lord of the Rings!

What can I say??

Whitehouse Farm
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

Whitehouse Farm
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

Whitehouse Farm
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
