Why stay here ...
At Sleepy Hollow Farm we offer the experience of staying in a peaceful and beautiful part of Derbyshire but with the added luxury of on-site amenities such as a toilet and shower block as well as an outdoor pot washing facility. Electric hook-up is also available.
We are a small family-run ‘rare breed’ sheep farm on the edge of the Peak District, situated in the tiny hamlet of Godfreyhole (where “Sir Godfrey” the notorious highwayman reputedly used to take refuge in the small cavern and caves nearby).
Our site consists of a reasonably flat lawned 2.5-acre field which comfortably accommodates 5 spacious pitches. The site is easily accessed and egressed by both caravans and motorhomes as there is a limestone driveway from the roadside entrance which carries on down through the middle of the field. There is also an alternative exit which can be used in extreme wet weather.
For those families bringing children you could occasionally have a visit from Godfrey the peacock who lives his days (and nights) roaming free in the hamlet; as well as seeing some of our hand-reared sheep who are very tame.
The market town of Wirksworth is just a short distance away where you will find many independent shops, a chemist, cafes, bars, pubs, restaurants, a fish and chip shop and both Chinese and Indian takeaways. We are also on the doorstep of many interesting places to visit such as Chatworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall, Alton Towers, Gulliver’s Kingdom, Heights of Abraham, Poole’s Cavern, Go-Ape and especially Carsington Water which is within walking distance from our site and offers various water sporting activities, canoe hire, paddleboards, rowing boats plus the Visitors Centre with its restaurant and shops as well as many outdoor activities such as walking and cycling around the reservoir. Other beauty spots nearby include Mam Tor, Dovedale, both the High Peak and Tissington trails and the Manifold Valley to name but a few.
Both well-behaved children and dogs are most welcome. We look forward to welcoming you to our site and hopefully you will find it the ultimate “get-away” experience.
