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.
