Woolly head? Lost the spring in your step? Fed up with people telling you, “Shear up love, it might never happen”? A stay at this friendly site on a sheep farm will leave you feeling fluffy in all the right places in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.
The location of Beech Croft Farm in the heart of the Derbyshire Hills is stunning, and the vibe is serene and relaxed - no rowdy party crowds here.
The site has been newly refurbished and now boasts a swanky eco-friendly amenities block with underfloor heating, plus larger hardstandings with electric hook-ups, water and TV aerial sockets. There’s also a well-stocked shop.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Beech Croft Farm is a great place to start discovering the Peak District. The Pennine Bridleway passes the entrance to the site, and a short distance away it links to the Monsal Trail, a former railway line alongside the river Wye with tunnels and viaducts to explore (cycle hire is available on the Trail). Other nearby walking and cycle routes include the Limestone Way and the High Peak Trail; also recommended is the picturesque Goyt Valley, which offers horse riding, and sailing and fishing on its reservoirs.
The towns that surround Beech Croft Farm are lovely: riverside Bakewell, famous for its markets, puddings and tarts; Buxton, a charming spa town that’s just as popular today as it was with the Victorians; Matlock Bath, home to various attractions, including cable cars and show caves at the Heights of Abraham; and Castleton, where there are four more impressive caverns to explore, plus a Norman castle.
For those who like to see how the other half lived, Chatsworth House is an imposing stately home, with lovely gardens, and an animal farm park and woodland adventure playground for the little ones. If the little monkeys need wearing out, the treetop fun at Go Ape is ideal.
