We assure you there’s nothing common about the wonderfully small and secluded Derbyshire campsite of Common End Farm - well maintained with helpful staff and views you won’t want to leave behind, to name just a few of its perks. The very green campsite is set among 20 acres of pastureland, so if you want a ‘real’ camping experience with some much-needed home comforts, book yourself a pitch at Common End Farm.
The site’s traditional stone barn has been transformed into a modern, free-to-use shower and loo block (separated into male and female amenities), but retains its outer Derbyshire charm, so as not to spoil your impressive rural views. Ladies - fear not, a hairdryer is provided as are electric sockets. In fact, gentlemen, you won’t be missing out either as the same is available in the men’s. You can choose a pitch with electric hook-up at a reasonable extra cost so you needn’t be without any essentials. Also available on site are drinking water taps and all other basics for a camping or caravanning trip, like designated refuse areas and a chemical disposal point (green fluid only please; you can buy this on site).
The friendly site owners welcome you to their land which offers stunning views across Thorpe Cloud and Dovedale, and they’ve gone to the trouble of filling the reception with info-filled notice boards to help you on your stay. Walkers and hikers can explore the southern Peak District National Park, while food can be chomped and drink guzzled after a hard day uphill (and down again) at the local pub, just 300m from the site.
Children will love running about the roomy fields and making their own adventures on day trips in the surrounding area (which includes a world-famous theme park, family-friendly walks, and towns to explore). The quiet and calm of Common End Farm in the evening means bedding the kids down after a busy day will be no problem at all.
Common End Farm is open from Easter to October, where the ‘downtime’ acts as a welcome little resting period for the site, ensuring it remains beautifully unspoilt each and every year.
We do not accept groups of three or more where the responsible adult is aged 25 years or under.
