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!

Chesterfield's hidden gem

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

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

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.

Priestfield Grange, New Year Visit

Not perfect, but out of the 200+ CLs that we've used over the years we've not yet found our perfect one, and although it's well over 100mls from home, this is the site we keep returning to. It has 5 H/S pitches with EHU, and although the pitches aren't the largest and do slope a little they are more than adequate for a car and Caravan or a Motorhome. Those wanting to erect an awning would have to put it on the grass, but the pitches are well spread out, so there's plenty of room. The site is nice and quiet being located a couple of miles from the A619 Chesterfield/Baslow road, on a lane that is a bus route, and has a wide entrance. An hourly bus sevices goes to Chesterfield one way and Bakewell the other and can be flagged down from the entrance. There is both a ladies and gents toilet, information cabin, the usual recycling facilities and TV, phone and WiFi reception are good. For those with dogs there are acres of fields where you can walk, free of both cattle and sheep, and there's a footpath that leads directly down to the 3 Linacre Reservoirs with their hard tracks. There are a number of other footpaths and bridleways close by and many places of interest within a short drive....Chatsworth and Haddon Hall to the west, Bolsover Castle and Harwick Hall to the east. For those that like longer walkers or bike rides the N/T's Longshaw Estate, and the gritstone ridges of Curbur, Frogget, Burbage and Stanage lie to the north west. We've found the owners, Jeff & Pat, to be both friendly and helpful. We will certainly continue to use this site year on year.

Good stop-over or longer stay

Booked this CL at short notice to break our journey, stayed 3 nights in October. The facilities are good and access ideal, and the fees modest. The only thing slightly negative is that the hardstandings are a tad small, barely enough room for car and caravan, an awning would have to go on the lawned grass and there is a sign 'keep off the grass'! There are some lovely walks direct from the site and the 170 bus from Bakewell to Chesterfield stops right outside offering an hourly service in both directions (half frequency on Sundays). The directions in the handbook are from Chesterfield and OK if coming from the east. However, access is actually better from Baslow, turn left off the A619 at the Robin Hood Inn (after about 1 mile) and continue for approx. 4 miles. The site is on the left about 500 yards after the pub, opposite a C&CC certificated site.
