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.

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.

Oodles of Character and Charm

Tideslow Farm
Plenty of different types of motorhome/caravan 'habitats' to choose from so there should be something for everyone here. We chose to park up by the drystone wall and watch the sheep when we were in our motorhome. From here it's a short walk/cycle to the village of Tideswell with its shops and pubs. We also walked to Eyam and cycled to Bakewell. You could catch the bus to Buxton from down the road although we didn't this time. Next time we're in the area, we would happily return here.

Tideslow Farm
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

Tideslow Farm
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.
