Great Views

Great place for a visit to the Monsal trail, or if you're a caravanner, visiting Buxton, Bakewell etc. Facilities are basic, but good hard standings with hook ups. Very close to the A6, but very little traffic noise. Farm animals can be a bit noisy, but it is a farm. We chose the pitch on the edge of the site so we could get the satellite dish pointing in the right direction. About a mile to the Church Inn at Chelwood, which had good beers, and a reasonable menu. The Anglers Rest in Millers Dale is about half an hour by bike, and well worth a visit.

Simple site with fantastic views

This site is simple but was just what we needed. We liked being left to ourselves but found the farmer very friendly and welcoming when our children asked to visit the cows. Quite exposed so beware of strong winds but great views over the dales. Good access to Buxton, walks from site to cheedale and miller's dale.

Perfect position for visiting Buxton and Bakewell

Just returned from two nights at this site. This is a quiet low key CL with fantastic views of the Peaks. Brilliant value as the nightly fee of £12 included electric hook up. A good location for driving into Buxton or Bakewell. The owner was friendly and helpful . If your a bit fussy you might like the grass cut shorter but the views over the hills make up for damp feet. Good parking for motorhomes as you drive into Buxton in the coach park. Easy to get into if you go in the morning and right at the end of the shopping area. Its about £5 for 4 hours but saves the hassle of finding somewhere in the town. A good CL that we will be returning to.

Enjoyable bank holiday break

Stayed for three nights over the first May Day bank holiday, decided on this site as it was very near the Monsal bike trail, pitches are hard standing and almost level so no problem, one easy to get to fresh water tap, grey waste emptying point, no problem, Elsan point no problem, some slight noise from the calf shed that is situated to the rear of the pitches, but it is a working farm after all, so not a problem.uninterrupted views, phone and tv signal good, friendly owners just let you get on with your stay. Can we recommend this site Yes without hesitation

Didn’t see a soul and the smell of calves was shocking.

The grass was about 8 inches long and unkept. The waste bins stunk. Behind vans were barbs housing calves who stunk and bawled every morning. Tractors moving early morning behind vans . One van is permanently there , the guy is a lorry driver. Didn’t see a single person the whole 4 days. Could be lovely but needs a good sort out . On the site and bin and waste area .

Outstanding views, Peace and Quiet

A fantastic 3 days spent in a fantastic peaceful location. Yes the facilities are basic and the owners leave you alone (great in my book!) The location for walking and cycling is great, Buxton just a few miles away for any extras you may need, for the relaxing Peak District visit superb! Would certainly return with our 3 dogs. Thanks

Beautiful site

Just got back from a last minute 2 night stay here and what a lovely site, very quiet, your left alone to enjoy your stay and it's perfectly situated for lots of walks straight out the farm gate. Perfect if you like a basic site without all the flashy extras, already booked to go back

Beautiful site in stunning setting

Love this site. We had a very wet and windy visit just after storm Doris but the site was sheltered to the rear. Facilities very basic and rough n ready but adequate. Already booked for bank holiday weekend. Walks and local towns easy access

what a shame

Having spent a long weekend on this site, on arrival the first thing noticable was the amount of sheep droppings covering the approach road, this was most unpleasent when walking off the site. Pitches ok, not level, but clean, the waste facilities were grim, maggots and other bugs in abounance. the views are good and access to local area good, unfortunitly we will not be revisiting, what a shame.
