It’s off to the races at this Derbyshire site, a tents-only spot in gorgeous countryside… Yew Tree Farm is well placed for peaceful stays, within walking distance of pubs, small supermarkets and takeaways, and less than 10 minutes’ drive from the town of Alfreton.
The family-friendly site is well set-up for fuss-free stays: it’s on a sizeable field and only a small number of guests are allowed at any one time, so there’s no need to worry about fighting the neighbours for that extra scrap of grass, plus with simple facilities limited to a covered washing-up area and a toilet block with solar-heated showers, there’s nothing too complex to navigate round here (thought it’s a good idea to bring a torch along, as the unlit site can be tricky after dark).
That open space lends itself well to fresh-air frolics, with loads of room for kids and dogs to run about and for supervising grownups to light up barbecues and campfires – no need to forage too far for firewood either, as there are packs for sale on site.
If all that gadding about isn’t enough activity for kids (or grownups), Peak District National Park is within 15 minutes’ drive – make immediate tracks for walks and hikes, bike rides, climbs and even days of leisure zooming about in a 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton.

This is the very edge of Austen country. Peak District National Park was a major inspiration for Pride and Prejudice, so take a deep dive into that classic era of British history with stops at the stunning Chatsworth (used as Darcy’s house in the 2005 movie), Tissington, Hardwick, Sudbury and Haddon – all within 40 minutes’ drive and highly recommended for a dose of grandeur.
Keep one toe in the past within 15 minutes of the site by slowing everything down for steam engine travels on Midland Railway, or choo-chooing along to the Crich Tramway Village for a ride on a vintage tram.
Prefer to escape dusty days of yore? Get out in the fresh air at Carsington Water, half an hour away, for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing and powerboating or to chance beginner’s luck with a rod and reel. If that’s not something that gets the family trotting happily along, opt for Northfield Farm instead, where everyone can clamber into saddles for horse riding and pony treks.
The nearby Matlock (15 minutes) is a must visit, particularly with kids in tow… Take the cable car to the Heights of Abraham, spend a day at Gulliver’s Kingdom and swim over to the aquarium or, if that’s all too sedate, head an hour away to the hair-raising rides of Alton Towers.
