All good.

Topley Head Farm
Difficult to add to what has previously been said by others, certainly can't take away from them. Nice queit little CL, and recommended. 5 x hardstandings, almost level, each with EHU. The CL is fenced off from the sheeps, who wander freely about on the other side of the CL gate. A cattle grid keeps them off the road, which leads me to my only word of caution. The farm entrance unfortunately is situated on a sweeping blind bend of the main road, so exiting the farm with any slow/towing vehicle can be a bit perilous. We nearly got taken out by one of the very many quarry lorries that was thundering back down the hill empty. Far too fast for the road layout and type of vehicle. Muppet. This is of course not the fault of the CL owners, and is clearly far beyond their control.

Great views, easy to find

Topley Head Farm
The site is basic with five pitches in a small field backing onto the main farm. Each pitch had it's own EHU point with the drinking water point at the lower end of the site. The hardstanding pitches were reasonably flat although small ramps may be needed. We only met someone from the farm on the first night when we went to pay although often saw someone at a distance, As it was lambing time they seemed fully occupied. The views from the site are fantastic and the small field in front of the site had recent mothers and their lambs running around. The site was a perfect place for seeing that area of Derbyshire with Ashbourne, Bakewell and Buxton all close by.

Great Views

Great place for a visit to the Monsal trail, or if you're a caravanner, visiting Buxton, Bakewell etc. Facilities are basic, but good hard standings with hook ups. Very close to the A6, but very little traffic noise. Farm animals can be a bit noisy, but it is a farm. We chose the pitch on the edge of the site so we could get the satellite dish pointing in the right direction. About a mile to the Church Inn at Chelwood, which had good beers, and a reasonable menu. The Anglers Rest in Millers Dale is about half an hour by bike, and well worth a visit.

Simple site with fantastic views

Topley Head Farm
This site is simple but was just what we needed. We liked being left to ourselves but found the farmer very friendly and welcoming when our children asked to visit the cows. Quite exposed so beware of strong winds but great views over the dales. Good access to Buxton, walks from site to cheedale and miller's dale.
