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.

We stayed at Tax Farm CL in July for four nights and can highly recommend it to anyone wanting peace and quiet with wonderful views. As described, the pitches are on two levels in order to give visitors the best views across the valley and they are spectacular views! Excellent walks from the site either into the woods behind or a walk down into the valley and across the fields. Joolz provided loads of useful information prior to our arrival which meant everything went smoothly and she's delightful when you meet her and clearly wants her visitors to have an enjoyable stay. TV and phone signals are great as was the 4G which meant easy access to the internet if needed. Chemical waste and bins are conveniently situated on each tier and it was great to have a fully serviced pitch meaning no filling up of water each day. Very easy access to Matlock and Bakewell with everything they offer including great pubs! Being CL owners ourselves we (hopefully) know what makes a good one and this is just that! Thanks Joolz!
