Farditch Farm: Pitches

General

  • Peaceful caravan park in the Peak District National Park
  • A 20-minute drive from Chatsworth Estate and 10 minutes from Buxton
  • Award-winning pub within walking distance

A peaceful, well-kept site, within easy reach of Buxton and Bakewell and a short stagger from an award-winning pub – Farditch Farm is quite the Peak District pleaser.

This friendly park in the village of Chelmorton is the place to settle for a little while if you seek your own space; valuing quality over quantity, the owners have elected to set up just a handful of pitches, each one spacious and surrounded by landscaping for the dual win of privacy and pretty colour.

Facilities have been limited to the essentials to maintain an uncrowded vibe. But what essentials they are – the smart central facilities building has a cosy lounge area and communal kitchen, and the adjacent toilet block has all mod cons, including plenty of showers, an accessible bathroom and handy touches including hairdryers. A cycle storage area is available on request, with secure storage and bike wash point.

Skipping out from the site you can your pick from rural rambles on the miles and miles of trails that network the Peak District National Park, sampling the puddings in Bakewell and taking the waters in the spa town of Buxton. Pick up your eats at Chatsworth’s farm shop, 20 minutes’ drive away, or wander down to the local pub, the Church Inn, to see why it’s picked up awards for its offerings (tasty food and a fire by which to sup your pint, perchance?)

    Spotlessly clean with excellent facilities including a kitchen with microwave and common room with board games and TV - best site we’ve stayed on. Level, well maintained pitches. Lots to do in the local area.

    Disliked: 

    Minor noise from the road but we have a pop top motorhome so probably more noticeable.

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely comments, it is always nice to get comments on how clean the facilities that I can pass on to the girls as they work very hard to ensure our high cleanliness standards.
We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back again at some point in the future :)

    We loved the site. The toilets and showers were immaculate and the site was kept very well. Easy EHU and water next to the level pitch . Close to the local pub and cycling trails.

    After coming out of hospital on the Thursday evening and travelling on the Friday late morning we intended a complete restful weekend, this was what we got the place where the caravans are was clean, tidy and very well maintained. Due to covid we never met any staff. The area was absolutely beautiful and beauty you just cannot find anywhere else in the world. We did encounter rain for the 2 nights three days but hey this is England at its best. Definitely would return again and even recommend such an idylistic caravan site. Thank you Farditch Farm.

Local attractions

With Chelmorton in the midst of the Peak District National Park, there are heaps of outdoorsy activities within easy reach. Walkers and cyclists have miles of trails to pick from; popular favourites nearby include the Tissington and Monsal trails. Horse riding, canoeing and climbing excursions are also available around the park.

And might you fancy pottering around the country’s fave country house? Then it’s off to Chatsworth, 20 minutes from the site – the Italianate stately home has been voted to the top of the polls several times for its fab collection of art, its stunning state rooms and its gorgeous gardens. There’s also a farmyard and playground here for the amusement of smaller visitors.

Plan to spend a bit of time in both the local towns of Buxton and Bakewell – the former for its grand opera house and elegant spa town heritage, the latter for poking about in the market and sampling its famed sweet treats (which is better – the tart or the pudding? Well, there’s only one way to settle that debate…)

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (8.0 miles)
  • Chatsworth (9.5 miles)
  • Lyme Park & Gardens (NT) (11.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (10.4 miles)
