Why stay here ...

Our CL is peaceful and situated on our 100 acre farm. It is lawned and spacious with a hard road round. All pitches have hard-standings, electric hook-ups and space for awnings: some are slightly sloping. There is night-lighting. Apart from the waste disposal, tap water and bins area, for Motor homes there is a separate waste disposal point and tap beside the road for ease of use. A Tourist Information Kiosk is stocked with comprehensive information. A bus stops at the gate to Chesterfield or Bakewell in the opposite direction. Adults, children and dogs are welcome. The local pub/restaurant is within walking distance and is noted locally for its good food and reasonable prices. Shops/supermarket -2 miles; Chemist - 1 mile; Doctor - 1 mile; Vet - 2 mile; Chesterfield Queen’s Park and Leisure Centre -3 miles; Theatres/Cinema -3 miles. Separate, and away from the site, are our two self-catering Holiday Cottages. Both are graded 4* and have Category 1 Disabled.

Walks directly from the site across wildflower meadows lead to the beautiful Linacre Valley with its three reservoirs and nature trails. The CL is perfect for venturing forth into the magnificent Peak District. It is approx. 3 miles from the breathtaking Curbar Edge; 5 miles from the lovely Longshaw Estate, etc, - the list goes on..

Nearby are the market towns of Chesterfield and Bakewell. Chesterfield with its crooked spire Church, three markets per week, quaint alleyways, theatres, and a restored Canal which runs boat trip. Bakewell is noted for its original Bakewell Pudding shop, cattle market, river scenes, etc. A few miles from the CL is Chatsworth, home of the Duke of Devonshire and a joy to many tourists. there is so much to do or simply relax in peace, watch the wildlife and listen to the birdsong!

Not good for motorhomes!

Priestfield Grange Farm

Yes, it is a fairly peaceful site, although a couple of times during our fives days there, we had dog obedience/agility on the next field, so quite a lot of barking! It also appears as if there are some people living on the site in caravans, which seems to be against the rules. The first time I went to empty my waste and fill my on board water tank, I parked on the track leading to the farm, the s/c cottages and the fields beyond so, in order not to cause a blockage, I pulled slightly round the corner, meaning that my tank did not drain as the motorhome was on a slope because the waste disposal area could never be described as 'drive over' as the handbook says! It is a shallow trough at the side of the access track to the cottages, so a hose is definitely needed. If you want to fill your water tank from that same location, it involves walking, rather dangerously, over a rough and overgrown area behind the rubbish bins, after doing it once, I didn't fancy doing it again and risking breaking my ankle! I drove slowly onto the grass near the tap the next time, but when I was almost finished, the owner came out and was very rude to me and told me not to park on the grass and that I had to park on the access road, causing an obstruction to anyone in the cottages! I was not prepared to cause any obstruction, so we left the next day and will never return to this site. If you have a caravan, the site is good, but absolutely not suitable for motorhomes.

As an aside, the information room was devoid of any information and the toilet had no paper or towel, so not very useful either.

A1 CL near Chatsworth

Priestfield Grange Farm
As the heading says, this C.L. is situated not far from Chatsworth, about 4 miles but in a perfectly peaceful surroundings. The arrival is described from Chesterfield. If coming from Baslow then turn left by the Robin Hood Pub, about a mile after the A621 Sheffield roundabout onto the B6050 and follow this road for about 3 miles .Pass the Fox and Grouse Pub and lookout for a C&CC CS on the right as the C.L. is almost opposite this. The entrance to the C.L. is wide and easy for any outfit. Quite a few of the pitches are sloping some more than others and the H/S is small stones and shale. We did have a problem with picking up some tar off the hardcore in very hot weather so beware. Didn't put an awning up or have a TV on but wifi and phone signals were good. Recycling is provided for and the Elsan point is adequate. We did have the electricity trip once without any reason for it to do so but it didn't happen again. There are walks from the CL down to 3 local reservoirs that drop down the back of the village and very nice it is too. Closest shop is the Co-Op about 5 minute drive away and other supermarkets in Chesterfield. Ease of access to the splendid walking area couldn't be better with a plethora of great walks to be had. Also Hardwick Hall is 30 minute drive away, Chatsworth on your doorstep, together with its Fram shop, and Renishaw Hall close by as well. The local bus service can be flagged down from outside the site and seems to run hourly. The owner does have 2 S/C cottages for hire as well. There is a bit of car movement as some people keep horses on fields and the owner does have 3 extra pitches just at the back of the CL. None of the pitches have trees overhead but are protected to some degree by them. A nice tidy CL at what is now considered a reasonable price of £14 per night (£1 extra for awning).

Chesterfield's hidden gem

Priestfield Grange Farm
This was a gem of a site, tucked away in Old Brampton, easy access to the site and clear entrance up a short curved drive. Pitches are only wide enough for caravan and awning, but parking the car was not a problem on the grass. Loads of space between each of the pitches. Mr Green welcomed us most warmly, he has such a lovely attitude to everything. Nothing too much trouble. He gave us directions to walk towards the nearby reservoirs, over his fields and down to a very pleasant walk around the reservoirs and through the forest, an absolute joy for us and our dogs. During the high winds , 40-50mph we were a bit worried about our awning, but as the site is surrounded by mature hedges and trees, we were protected and the awning was fine. This is a must to return to what ever the weather.

A Lovely Quiet Peaceful Site In A Great Location

Priestfield Grange Farm
A lovely quiet and peaceful site with easy access, located on the edge of the Peak District and only 10 minutes from Chesterfield and 15 minutes from Chatsworth. On our arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome from the owner. The pitches are of hard standing and are very well spaced apart with plenty of room. The site has a very useful toilet block with separate Male and female facilities. This is clean and bright and even has a small heater to take the chill off. We would certainly highly recommend this site. It has all the facilities that you would expect from a good C/L and at £13 a night offers great value.

A really useful and pleasant site near Chatsworth House

Priestfield Grange Farm
This is our second visit to Priestfield Farm CL. We chose it because it would allow us a full day at the nearby Chatsworth House. Facilities are good and hook-ups are easy. The site is a bit sloping for Motorhomes, but access is easy from the road, with a wide entrance. The surrounding landscape of the Derbyshire Dales is quite stunning. We would certainly stay there again.
