Why stay here ...

Tideslow Farm is a working farm in a quiet location with wonderful open views across the White and Dark Peak and has two scheduled ancient monuments. Farmed ecologically with environmental considerations taken into account with the abundance of orchids thriving to be seen at the end of May depending on the season. 

Centrally located in the Peak District National Park being around a 10 minute drive to Castleton Caverns and a 20 minute drive to the must see locations of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Lyme Park, the plague village of Eyam and the Towns of Bakewell and Buxton and all that they offer with their respective events and facilities. There is a foot path adjacent to the site leading to the main network of paths, the Limestone Way and Monsal Trail with the Tissington Trail a 30 minute drive away. Excellent cycling for enthusiasts being on and close by to a number of routes which the Eroica Cycling Extravaganza utilise.

There are a number of public houses (nearest about 1.3 miles way) and cafes in the surrounding picturesque villages and the main nearby village of Tideswell which serve excellent food and the usual services of Post Office, Doctors Surgery, Butchers, Bakery and small supermarket open long hours along with a the beautiful Cathedral of the Peak, St John the Baptist Church. The connecting farm of Forest Lane Farm has two well equipped holiday cottages which are close by and dog friendly.

This CL is one that keeps drawing us back !! Large field with many options to pitch up,you can even go up into a wooded area and look down on the rest of the site Great walking from the gate,a little stroll up onto High Rake is a must-the view is heavenly Peter is a charming man,and always takes the trouble to visit you daily,and usually with a tale or two to tell ! Once you visit,be warned......you will feel compelled to return Thank you Peter

Lovely site, especially if you want somewhere quiet.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this site. It's not hard to see why most people rate this site 5 stars. Lovely site in a very peaceful location. Great views on a clear day and the owners are extremely friendly. This is a working farm. Waking up in the morning to look out of the window and see sheep grazing on the grass literally just a few feet from my caravan was a nice touch! Facilities are extremely limited to say the least. Basically a hole in the ground to pour your chemical waste from the toilet, two water taps (one for drinking water & one for rinsing out the chemical toilet) & that's essentially it. There's no electricity on site, even the owners house several hundred yards down the road has no mains power (he runs his house on solar with a backup from a generator). If coming here you will need to be able to run your caravan or motor-home "off-grid", In other words you will need to have on-board toilet & shower facilities and be able to run everything off of gas and 12v electric from your leisure battery topped up with solar, but let's be honest, that's part of the fun of coming to a site like this!!! One other person commented about access being difficult with a tight turn and country lanes. I disagree. I didn't think it was that tight. Besides, what do you expect if you're going to a remote site in the middle of the countryside. There is a track from the road all the way to the middle of the field. It could possibly get a little soft underfoot (and easy to get stuck) in the winter months when you deviate from the track to park up, especially if you don't have a 4x4, but this would apply to most CL sites. Usual things apply when off-roading to park the caravan, keep the vehicle moving to keep the momentum up, don't stop in the dips, try not to let the wheels spin & don't stray too far from the track. I just got back from a short stay at the start of March and I had no problems with my front-wheel drive Vauxhall Zafira. 5 stars from me. I'd go again and happily recommend the site to anyone else looking for somewhere to stay.

Lovely basic site

This is a lovely little site. Pauline and her father are friendly, welcoming and helpful without being obtrusive. They responded promptly to emails (amazing how many sites don't) with clear information and good directions. The site itself is a peaceful field surrounded by dry stone walls and beautiful countryside. There's almost nothing here. Nothing, that is, except beautiful views, excellent walks, and fantastic sunsets. What more could you want? There's plenty of space in the field for the number of units (I never felt cramped) and pitches are pretty flat. Access is good. Facilities are limited - a cold water tap and an elsan disposal point - so you do need to be prepared to use your own loo and shower. There's a good pub in the next village, about a mile away. If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful escape then I would recommend this site.

Wonderful site

This is probably the best site that we have ever stayed at; straightforward to find and access was easy, lots of space for privacy, absolutely beautiful surroundings, wonderfully quiet and the owner was welcoming and very accommodating without being intrusive. There are magical walks with breathtaking views in every direction and also several towns within easy reach for provisions and eating out. We booked in for three nights and ended up staying for eight!
