- Quiet Peak District caravan site with simple, spacious pitches
- A 10-minute drive from Bakewell and 20 minutes from Chatsworth Estate
- Part of a working farm near Monyash and Tissington Trail
Take off on the Tissington Trail and the Limestone Way or sample some of the puddings in Bakewell. With easy access to these footpaths and being 10 minutes’ drive away from Bakewell, Whim Farm Caravan Site is all about making your holiday around this Derbyshire farm a treat. Just outside the village of Monyash, it’s a small site with basic but spacious pitches and plenty of fab outings nearby…
So, stretch your legs some more at Chatsworth Estate (20 minutes) or Lathkill Dale (easily accessed from here), or sign up for the thrills of Alton Towers (half an hour). It’s only a short drive to other popular spots including the Monsal Trail and Dovedale.
It’s a fairly simple setup on site with drinking water, an Elsan point and recycling bins provided but no showers or toilets. The rewards for self-contained visitors are good ones though: there are stunning views out over the Peak District National Park all around, and plenty of places nearby to get out for good walks. Access is easy too, with a nice wide entrance straight off the B5055 allowing plenty of manoeuvring space for tourers.
Two pubs are within walking distance of the farm too (one in the village and one on the Tissington Trail), and there’s a café in the village too. Top reward for all walkers, however, has to be a treat from the farm next door, which makes its own ice cream from its herd of dairy cows and sells it in the café and shop.

Look out for the caravan site entrance on the right after turning off the B5055; don't keep going all the way down the farm lane.
If the Tissington Trail landscapes are some of the first you want to take in, bicycle hire is 20 minutes’ drive away from the site. Of course, you could walk this 13-mile trail too. Either way, there are plenty of views of the Derbyshire Dales to go around.
On your way around Dovedale (25 minutes’ drive), you’ll get to cross stepping stones and enjoy valley views instead. This beauty spot joins a club of local vistas: Chatsworth Estate (20 minutes) is another big one, with the stately home itself and then the gardens and petting farm.
To elevate your heart rate some more, Go Ape Buxton (15 minutes) will put your balance to the test with treetop obstacle courses and zipwires to put your feet back on firm ground. While you’re over this way, you might as well call into (or dedicate an afternoon to) Poole’s Cavern & Buxton Country Park (15 minutes), where there’s a limestone cavern, as well as woodland trails up above.
Fancy yourself a walk around a medieval park or a tour of parts of a Tudor mansion? This historical type of walkaround is available at Haddon Hall (20 minutes).
