Heaven

We've been trying to get on to this C.L. for ages and finally cracked it. The wait was worth it. Well situated off the A515 Buxton to Ashbourne road. The turn in leads down a land to the farm and the CL. The C.L. has 3 H/S pitches and 2 Grass ones, although there is sufficient space to put a third unit on grass instead of H/S if you so prefer. The land does slope and there is a plentiful supply of wooden ramps supplied by the owners to assist you in levelling. We were lucky and bagged a pitch in the far corner which is perfectly level and H/S with wondrous views of the farmland. Water, recycling bins and Elsan points are excellent. The owners and their sons occupy the houses adjoining the CL and are on hand to answer any query and with the owners being caravaners themselves have a wealth of knowledge if needed. Both are extremely friendly. They even asked if I wanted a newspaper collecting and delivered done to the caravan step each morning. Never had that elsewhere. The farm is split by the High Peak Trail, used mostly by cyclists but you could walk along it for 4 kms to the Royal Oak at Hurdlow (recommended pub) if you so desire. The Tissington trail can be accessed 2 KMs along the trail so the car can stay on site. If you want walking then Hartington is 5 minutes away and many, many walks available in a fantastic walking county just a short drive away as well. We came away knackered after 8 days of exercise! Downsides? Every CL has one. The only one I can find is that some people (not us) may find farm work noisy and the Cows won't be a respecter of anyone trying to sleep in if they happen to be in an adjacent field. It would be a pity if you felt that way as you should expect such things on a Working Farm. Would we return again? You bet but we may have to wait a while to get on. Be aware that there are many returnees, a sure sign of a good, well run C.L. There is a separate 5 unit area well away from the CL with Hardstanding pitches, a bit closer together but with grass opposite to sit out on, with access to the Trail as well.

Absolutely Splendid!!! The very best CL we have been on during our 28 years membership. Warm welcome, made to feel part of the family, farm tour exc.

From being welcomed by Barbara we were made to feel that our holiday success was very important to both her and her husband John. The site was immaculate and had a national park trail running alongside it, so marvellous for walking our dog. When a really bad gale threatened our awning, it saw both Barbara and John helping us to hold it down until my husband could put stronger pegs down. Barbara took us around the farm, explained the milking process, showed us their new calves and a newly born bull named Colonel Tom as it was born on his birthday. This was more than a stay at a CL, it was a real and varied experience and one we highly recommend and intend to repeat. All the very best Barbara and John, you deserve it.

Perfect in every way!

This was our first visit to Brundcliffe Farm and what a delightful site it is. Barbara gave us a really warm welcome and helpful tips about our stay. COVID measures were excellent with hand sanitisers by the gate, the bins and the tap. The views are lovely and being right by an entrance to High Peaks Trail (also leading to the Tissington Trail) was a real bonus. The site is beautifully kept and levelling blocks are provided if required. We didn’t need them. Our newspaper was delivered daily and we really appreciated being able to watch the milking process. John and Barbara really seem to enjoy running a CL! Thank you John, Barbara and the family.

Another great stay at the farm

Spent another fantastic 8 nights on one of our favourite CL's, always a warm welcome from Barbara and John. What we like about the site is the ease of access to the off road cycle track that passes through the farm, excellent for families with young children. Since our last visit the paving in the chem. waste and bin area have been relaid, the little jobs are always kept on top off on this CL. Fresh eggs available and Barbara will arrange to have your preferred daily newspaper to be collected and delivered to your van.

Fantastic site

This was our first ever visit to a CL and it couldn't have been better. It's a beautifully maintained site with elsan, refuse and water facilities to rival any club site. We thought it was great! The location is perfect for exploring the peak district. My daughter and I took up the opportunity for a tour of the diary farm which we both found extremely interesting. We'll definitely be back next year.

Lovely Farm, great welcome

Just spent 10 nights on this lovely CL. A wonderful welcome and help to pitch - purpose built ramps even provided, a 1st for us. Barbara, John and family are very friendly and the CL is in a beautiful part of the country. The High Peak Trail is next door which allowed me to get the bike out for the 1st time in years. Although on the A515 it is far enough away that traffic noise is not obtrusive. 3 pitches are hardstanding and the views across the Peak District are wonderful. A lovely find for us.

Fantastic

A lovely CL Site with easy access. Extensive views of rolling hills and dry stone walls. We saw a hare. A working dairy farm and nice to see the cows coming and going for milking each day. Owners very welcoming and are happy to show you the calves if asked. There is easy access to the cycle track and walks directly from the site including a pub within walking distance. Try the Huntsman's pie from the Village Store in Hartington, they are delicious! Wooden blocks and ramps are available for levelling if required although most pitches are flat with some hard standing. The morning paper delivered each day was a lovely touch. I would throughly recommend it and hope to return soon.

Perfect

Another stay at this wonderful CL. It has to be the best site in the area. Well kept, extensive views, quiet and centrally located for the best of the Peak District. Always a warm reception from Barbara and John. Lots of good pubs locally, great walking and the High Peak Cycle Track runs adjacent to the site. There is good reason why we keep coming back. We will book again soon.

Peaceful site

Lovely site, in very quiet location. Two areas of 5 vans on each. Both full when we visited and owner positioned us on the second site, which we were informed about on booking.Vans very close together, but lovely neighbours and views across the fields. Motor home which arrived unable to squeeze in but managed to park on the grass. Unfortunately, we missed the turning for the site and needed to turn around, not a big issue, but we were reprimanded for not reading the directions when the owners met us we thought we had , but approached from different direction.(Slightly disconcerting being told off but our fault). Approach is very good with no access issues. Elson point on second site, again no issue, but our neighbours took the car to avoid the walk. Probably could do with another point for the second site. Great location for visiting beautiful area and dog walk and cycle track directly off site. Owners kindly offered to deliver morning paper which we received 3 mornings out of 4. Would visit again, but make sure we pay attention to directions !
