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  0.5 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 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.

Another site in our top 10

What a lovely CL in the middle of the Peak District, breathtaking views with plenty of places to explore. The site is only a mile from the main road so access is not a problem, you don’t hear any traffic noise at all, just peace and quiet and the sound of nature. There’s plenty of room to spread out with pitches at different levels, there is also a hard standing by the gate at the end of the track onto the site. Peter and his daughter Pauline are very friendly and regularly visit the site. We had a lovely meal in the newly opened Blind Bull inn at Little Hucklow, definitely worth a visit, we’ll be booking in for a Sunday roast on our next stay as we’re already planning a return visit to Tideslow Farm.

Great site

The is a truly excellent site. The view is great whether you drive up into the trees or stay in the open field below. The facilities are all that you need and are adequate for the purpose. Set in one of the loveliest parts of the dales there is so much to do in the area you might miss the wonders of the ancient lead mines running adjacent to the site. They present a fascinating walk full of history and wonderful views. One of the best sites we have ever stayed in.

Fantastic!

I can see why this is such a loved and popular site. So easy to get to, the last mile or so takes you away from the main road and is down a single track lane, but loads of passing places, plus you can see well ahead of you so no nasty surprises. The site is away from the lane again down a gravel track. It's 4 acres with about 50% covered with trees, with mown tracks and areas between them, meaning that there is a pitch to suit all and you can really spread out. The site is undulating but plenty of flattish spaces. The owner arrived straight away and welcomed me, asking if I needed any help with the awning, he even popped in later to make sure that I had got it done okay. They called in most days to make sure all was well. During the first night we had a horrendous thunder storm and first thing in the morning the owner was on site making sure that everyone there were all okay, which was very kind and thoughtful. The views were different from each area of the site, and other than the odd vehicle down the lane (which you could hardly hear, the cyclists made more noise) it was total peace and quiet, stunning, relaxing and beautiful, I can see why it's so popular. There is so much to see and do in the area, from Moor-side walks to chilling out by one of the many reservoirs. Tideslow Farm is now one of my favorite places, and I will be going back there. FIVE STARS from Helen and Peanut (the Dog)

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.
