Why stay here ...

We are a hillside working farm overlooking the rolling hills of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales just outside Matlock. Set in an acre field, the site is set up with two terraced levels to take advantage of the stunning views to the West and as a result you will be blessed with some jaw dropping sunsets (weather permitting!).

All pitches are level, hard standing and fully serviced with electric hook up, own water supply and grey waste outlet. They are set in a natural meadow with wild flower meadow banks. CCEP and Recycling/dry waste points are situated on each Tier.

Please note that our approach is quite steep so please make sure you have your pitch allocation before arrival as there is little room to turn if you arrive on the wrong level! Top Tier (pitches 1, 2 and 3) is the first level you come to and Bottom Tier (pitches 4 and 5) is a little further down. These are clearly marked.

Arrivals strictly after 1pm and departures before 12 unless by arrangement, due to restricted access and no waiting areas.

We welcome children and well behaved pets but as we are a working farm we would ask that these are supervised at all times and are not allowed to wander from the enclosed caravan site area.

There is a public footpath direct from the farm access, which takes you to a beautiful woodland walk with natural dams and a waterfall. There is also Matlock Moor, belonging to the Forestry Commission, for extensive forest walks just a few hundred yards from the farm entrance.

Although the site is peaceful and rural we are only two miles from Matlock Town with its Supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and vibrant vintage shops across the bridge. Matlock also boasts a fabulous leisure centre with gym, badminton courts and 25 metre pool and toddler splash pool.

Just a little further Matlock Bath has amusements, quirky shops, Gulliver's Kingdom Theme Park and the Heights of Abraham with Cable Cars, Caverns and exhibits for those wanting a little more entertainment during their stay!

The stunning Chatsworth Estate is only a 6 miles away over the picturesque Moors, with its splendid House and Gardens, sprawling estate and farm shop.

The market town of Bakewell is only 8 miles away and has a lively agricultural centre with livestock auctions most Mondays to coincide with the open market in the town square. It also has lovely little shops and a wonderful riverside walk. Chesterfield is a larger Town with big name shops and is also only 8 miles away.

There are plenty of stunning walks a short drive away with too many to mention, such as Stanage Edge and Mam Tor. The Monsal Trail (path of the former Midlands Railway) is great for level walking and cycling.

With so much to do in the area we recommend you visit our Website for more detailed information.

Green eco chemicals required for the toilets - available on site for a small charge.

What can I say

Tax Farm
Can only reaffirm what previous comments have to say about this site.A site of peaceful surrounding with views of the Derbyshire countryside that takes your breath away. With very large pitches set on two levels each with its own water and ehu,with some fantastic walks straight from site there is nothing not to like about Tax Farm. Dog friendly and you can also order food to be delivered to you van. As soon as we got home we booked for another break here that is how highly we rate this site.

Wonderful stay in Derbyshire Dales

Tax Farm
Really lovely spot on a working farm. Beautiful views across the valley, with incredible sunsets. Five pitches in total and very spaced out, so even when full, feel that sense of being away from it all. The facilities are well situated and marked out. Joolz and Tim are fantastic site owners, and went out of their way to be helpful to us at every stage of our stay. Spent 11 wonderful nights here and can highly recommend.

Just perfect

Tax Farm
Stayed here for 4 nights and had a really quiet relaxing time. Be sure to follow the owners directions as our Garmin sat nav was wanting us to approach the site from the opposite direction which would have been a nightmare. Hardstanding was problematic as we found our straight nail pegs jammed solid when we came to pack up, probably better to have screw in pegs. Was able to order a “curry to caravan” from a nice local Indian restaurant as well as fish and chips from Uber Eats ( nice fish shop in Matlock) delivered to our van. This site is definitely one we’ll return to.

Super views of surrounding valley & hillside

Tax Farm
We have little to add to all the other positive reviews for Tax Farm. We had 5 nights there in September 2020 and the site was full every night. There were some spectacular sunsets as well as a cloud inversion one morning! The walk from the site into the wooded valley below isn’t through the farmyard as you might expect. You need to go back up the entrance road & follow the left track towards Tax Cottage – it is a byway/footpath. It does appear that you are trespassing when you come across the yard associated with the cottage but persevere. There is also a nice walk above the site through Farley Woods with cyclable tracks & various offshoot footpaths. The easiest entry point is if you turn left out of the site onto the riad for about 300 yards and, opposite a small layby, is a footpath that will lead you in. We would recommend this CL for a peaceful break with wonderful views from the two tiered hardstanding areas.
