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.

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!

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!
