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 (nearby) and cafes in the surrounding picturesque villages and the main nearby village of Tideswell which serve excellent food and the usual services of Doctors Surgery, Butchers, Bakery and small supermarket open long hours along with 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.

Stunning views in the Peaks

Tideslow Farm
Booked fairly last minute and we were exceptionally pleased with our choice. A large site, with a mixture of grass and woodland, free to pitch anywhere. Site is quite uneven and slopes in places but easy to find a suitable level pitch away from other vans. Owner arrived promptly and gave a very warm welcome and lots of useful ideas. Local pubs are very good- Anchor Inn for pub grub and the Blind Bull if you have deeper pockets! Lots of good walks from the site- and the wonderful listed Tideswell Rake lead mine runs alongside the site. A great basic CL, with plenty of extra information on a notice board by the water point - the Elsan point is at the top of the field and very easy to use, being raised off the ground. We had a superbly relaxing time and will be back soon- and can see why it is so popular, with people coming back time and time again.

Get yer walking boots and cycle clips on

Tideslow Farm
This is one cracking sit so long as your very self sufficient off grid and wanting beautiful views, miles and miles of walking to be done from site. We walked to Castletown from site along the Limestone way and down through Cavedale. Around trip of just over 11 miles, wonderful views along the way to marvel at. We also cycled down to and along the Monsal Trail, built do plan yer trip as not so many places to get onto the trail as would be if your walking. Although hard work at times, Getting on to trail from The Anglers Rest of which we needed once we got up the very steep and rocky path. We had another great 20 mile cycle ride out. Only got 2 punchers en route so come prepared. Now to the site. Fresh water tap onsite, CDP at top of field. I his time of year “May” there are Lesser Spotted Orchids in the Old Lead Mining diggings along site the site and part of the farm. Owners very friendly and helpful. We are still on site after thinking we would only be a few days and almost 2 weeks later still hear. And for £10 PN i think is well worth it. You may need levelling chocks but to be honest there’s plenty of level’ish spots if you look for them. Either out in the open Along side the wall or under the trees the views all around are fantastic. Access can be a little tight off the road but you soon get use to it. Where a 7.5 meter motorhome no problem at all. To sum up yes when in the area again we will be back.

A perfect off grid spot!

Tideslow Farm
This is a fab off grid CL! Under the trees or out in the open; the choice is yours. Yes it's a bit lumpy in places but it was easy to find flat spots and plenty of space to ensure privacy. There were three other vans on site when we were there this time, but it felt like we were on our own. The Tideswell Rake (the site of a medievil lead mine) runs through the site and makes for very interesting topography. We used the site as a starting point for a 9ish mile circular walk and there are plenty available. TA great place to explore the peaks away from the hotspots; uncrowded, peaceful and perfect. Buxton isn't far if that's your thing and the Anchor pub, a mile stroll down the road was friendly and welcoming. We recieved an informative friendly email after we'd booked and the owners daughter checked in with us after our arrival, with lots more local info. We've only ever stayed in autumn but will definitely visit in the Spring for a different perspective.

Very scenic and peaceful

Tideslow Farm
This off-grid site is lovely and allows you to choose from a variety of 'pitches' either in the open or under trees. We pitched up and were soon enjoying the peace and quiet which was only interrupted by the pair of nesting sparrow hawks as they looked after their young. Ajoining the site are some leads mines and these are great from both a historical point of view, and because of the wild-life (especially insects) that now have colonised the area - a lovely area for macro photographers at the right time of year. We had some lovely walks directly from the site around the quiet lanes and along the footpaths, which are numerous. The one downside is that the grass was a tad too long, and we got wet feet early in the mornings, as well as dragged grass into the van. Other than that, this is a lovely site, and the owners were very welcoming - we will return very soon.

Could be even better!

Tideslow Farm
Great area and views, nice to have the trees in hot weather. "slight slope" I would add with moon type crater's or be warned you can bottom out your van trying to find a flat spot. Not the best value as I personally don't like charging systems that start at £10 reduced to £9 if staying more than 2 nights with extra £1 for awning £5 for battery charging and no facility for rubbish disposal. Interestingly I didn't put up my awning as I couldn't find a flat spot. Friendly but perceived the idea most people who book for several days only stay one night. This is a working sheep farm and I did experience the occasional swam of flies, kind of goes with the territory & time of year. Also unfortunately not as peaceful as it could have been due to M'home generator running for several hours and a late arrival after 10pm driving around trying to find a flat spot - perhaps more the issue with members consideration for others than fault with the owner or site.
