Why stay here ...

The Green Farm CL is a secluded, peaceful site in the hamlet of King Sterndale, yet only 3 miles from Buxton. It is a beautiful setting overlooking the Wye Valley with a backdrop of Grade II listed limestone barns. Views are 360 degrees of fields, ancient protected woodlands of the Wye Valley, and the lovely village green with its "Butter Cross" commemorating Elizabeth I's coronation. The site has mature trees to provide dappled shade. Facilities are simple: Drinking water, waste via a natural environmentally friendly cess pit, battery charging and recycling and rubbish facilities.

King Sterndale is a small hamlet of limestone buildings around a village green with post box and telephone, and a beautiful church. Green Farm  is ideally placed to explore the Peak District based at its heart in a rural setting, but just a few miles from Buxton with its Opera House, Pavilion Gardens, Pooles Cavern, Tree tops adventure at Go Ape and many pubs, restaurants and shops. Bakewell, Chatsworth House, Monsal Head and the Goyt valley are all easily accessible by car. Walks exist from the door down Wye Dale, Woo Dale, Chee Dale and Deep Dale (a wildlife trust area) with easy access to the Midshires Way and the Monsal Trail (a registered cycle route - Sustrans 680), with bike hire available from the nearby Blackwell Mill. The River Wye, within 100 metres, is one of Europe's best fly fishing rivers (rod licences from the relevant authorities necessary). The Buxton & High Peaks Golf Club, approximately 5 miles away, one of the oldest in the Derbyshire region, will test even the most avid of golfers; it is meticulously attended and is in top condition.

Testimonial recently received:

"Green Farm CL is a gem! Situated at the end of a long cul de sac in a pretty village makes it a lovely peaceful haven. Lots of walks in the area and quite a few from the site. Friendly, helpful owners. What is there not to love?!" - Stephen & Sheila Longworth, May 2014.

Wow what an increase in charges!!

Because of the other glowing reviews for this site, I decided to go ahead with our booking despite the astronomic 57% increase in charges to those detailed in the 2017/18 sites directory. We found this very small site easily enough and were able to find a suitable place to park our campervan. The walking from the site is good enough, most especially along the mile and a bit long dead end road which is virtually devoid of traffic. Unfortunately the site isn't overlooked from the owners property, so they weren't able to see the dogs from a white van owners caravan, aimlessly wandering around the site unwatched by their owner, doing what male dogs do!! So enough was enough for us and we only stopped for a single night rather than the three we were expecting to stay.

This CL is a little gem for enjoying peace, tranquility and beautiful scenery. We have just spent 3 nights over the glorious May Bank Holiday, doing many "up hill and down dale" walks from the site followed by a well earned afternoon aperitif (or three) relaxing in the sunshine. Brett and Jen were so helpful and knowledgable of the surrounding Derbyshire countryside, and nothing was too much trouble. As their field was still wet after weeks of rain, we stayed on their large beautiful courtyard between two barns. Brett fixed up a direct hosepipe for us, and our waste water pipe went into a very convenient drain. It was idyllic ..... we would certainly come again!

Beautiful setting. Just a green field with a large sycamore in the middle. Bordered by woods and a field full of sheep and lambs who come up to be fed and stroked. Friendly helpful owner. We had the field to ourselves for 5 out of 7 days and didn't miss the electric hook up too much. The owner informs me they are getting power in place in the next month or so. Access to Buxton, cycle hire and routes, numerous walks straight from the village. Would love to return.

Excellent

We arrived early season during a prolonged wet period but we managed to back the caravan and car into the field entrance to avoid getting bogged in, and had the field all to ourselves and the dog. There is hard standing near the house. Set in a small hamlet there are beautiful views and hillside walks just yards from the field on a track that joins the A6 down a steep hill. Don't follow satnav for this route! Not far from Buxton etc. but very secluded and quiet.
