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, the plague village of Eyam, Chestnut Otter & Owl Sanctuary, 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.

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!

Lovely views & quiet central location

Easy access to site & a number of level pitches, wonderful open views, peaceful location, footpath &  unusual ancient monument adjacent. Great spot to access all Peak Park attractions. Monsal trail 2.5 miles away to access fabulous track to Bakewell for cycling or walking. Barrel Inn @ Bretton is a must visit for great food & views into Chatsworth & around. We always return to this site over a number of years, appeal never fades.

Fabulous views, great for cycling and walking!

Access is along a lane with passing places, and a tight turn into the site - but don't let this put you off. Grassy site with some uneven ground surrounded by a few trees - a wooded dell with fabulous views towards Hathersage - something you won't get on a big all-singing-all-dancing site where you're often staring into someone elses 'van! Great location for walking and cycling - the Monsal Trail is only two miles away to Bakewell, and we also cycled from the site to Eyam. Great fish & chips in Tideswell, and the Barrel Inn on the top road to Eyam get's my vote for food!

Years of happy stays

Having started to review the sites we visit I was surprised to find none on this site. We have been visiting this site for over 20years and come August B/H it will be 4 times this year, each time we visit we find something new to do or see. The owner Peter Atkin is very pleasant and always pops to have a chat & check that everything is ok. The views are beautiful and we have often sat out in the evening and watched the Gliders taking off in the distance, its lovely and peaceful. Always plenty to do, Castleton with its Mines, Historical Ruins & gift shops, Bakewell lovely Market Town, market days are great plenty of shops to visit & of course the Bakewell Puddings. Tideswell is just up the road about a mile with its beautiful Church, also has all the amenities you may need. It has a fabulous Butchers & Bakers along with paper shop, grocers & small supermarket not forgetting our regular arrival night visit to the fish & chip shop located just opposite the church being greeted with jovial welcome from the owner along with lovely fish & chips. The village also has a number of Pubs. Just outside the site is a footpath on which you can walk for hours picking up different routes and exploring the countryside, its funny though we nearly always return through the village of Great Hucklow where we have a little rest & refreshment (pint for me bowl of water for the boys) this is also our Sunday evening visit, they do a lovely Sunday roast. We would highly recommend this site.
