Lower Kempshill Farm: Peaceful country farm stay with enclosed garden & parking.

General

  • Peaceful, pet-friendly farm stay in the Peak District National Park
  • A 10-minute drive to Buxton and Speedwell Cavern; Bakewell, 20 minutes
  • Village pub 20 minutes' walk; local trails like the Pennine Bridleway

Whether your Peak District plans include investigating caverns, hiking down limestone ravines or eating plenty of Bakewell tarts (or, indeed, all three), Lower Kempshill Farm is a wise base. As a peaceful pet-friendly farm stay, those who set down here can expect star-filled nights when the conditions are right and waking up to the sounds of sheep bleating or horses neighing.

Those adventuring with kids will be happy to find an enclosed field. Kids can spy on the animals in the neighbouring fields. Outdoor enthusiasts will be equally pleased, knowing that the 205-mile Pennine Bridleway is a short walk away and there are lots of cycling or walking trails in the surrounding area.

As a Peak District National Park site, Lower Kempshill Farm is an excellent place to get out to pretty villages, huge hills or splendid lakes. Sip on local ales at a cosy pub (for just that, the village pub 20 minutes’ stroll away). Pick up a local walking or cycling trail such as the Monsal Trail from the market town of Bakewell (20 minutes’ drive).

Tideswell and the spa town of Buxton are both 10 minutes’ drive from the site if you’d like to pick out a bar or restaurant suiting your taste. Chatsworth House is another big attraction close by, well-known for its scenic gardens, walks, adventure playground and petting farm. There are show caves around Castleton (15 minutes) for those seeking another change of scenery.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    We stayed here end of October beginning of November. We really enjoyed our time here so did our little dogs. We have done a few glamping holidays and this was by far the cleanest one we have ever stayed at. The owners were lovely and ran extra bedding down to us in a rain storm. Such a peaceful location we would definitely visit again in the summer time and explore some more of the area. Everything you need is already here and even a little info book of the area for you.

    Disliked: 

    We didn’t dislike anything. We really enjoyed our stay. Just a suggestion though due to the amount of rain the mud was really bad to get in and out of the driveway. Might be an idea to put down some gravel or some slabs to stop cars getting stuck. we were okay with a jeep, but other cars would struggle.

    We really enjoyed our stay at lower kempshill farm. The local is perfect for us as we love to get out and about in the countryside. It's remote but not too far from civilisation when you need to do some grocery shopping or treat yourself to a evening out.

    Really lovely owners, we ran out of gas at 7pm on a rainy Friday night and the owners came straight out and brought us a new bottle.

    Absolutely everything! This holiday was just perfect for our family. We have 2 small children (5&3) and a young dog who loves to bark at fresh air. Here, I didn't have to worry about disturbing neighbours or the dog barking at nothing as it truly is on its own, surrounded by sheep and a few horses. The caravan itself is absolutely beautiful inside and comes with everything you could need. We weren't sure we'd afford to get away this year but this is such a reasonable price and with the great little kitchen inside we were able to cook rather than eat out. The beds were really comfortable too. Aneta is also close by and can't do enough for you if you should need anything. We can't wait to come and stay again very soon. We would happily spend 2 weeks here rather than the 2 nights we stayed. Thank you for a great time.
