- Well-maintained, peaceful site on working dairy farm with scenic views
- In the Peak District National Park, a 15-minute drive from Buxton
- Close to the Tissington and High Peak trails for countryside wanders
Plonk yourself down between pretty Peak District and Staffordshire moorlands at Pilsbury Lodge Farm, a simple yet scenic family-run site on a working dairy farm with countryside views. This is a friendly sort of spot where the owners happily greet you and get you settled in on arrival, so you can spend more time tearing through the lovely local landscape.
There is, after all, much to see in this part of the world. Just off the A515, the park is 15 minutes’ drive from Buxton and 25 minutes from the Georgian and Tudor architecture in Ashbourne, both of which are known for restaurants serving up fine food made from locally sourced ingredients.
When you’d rather cook for yourself, finagle a few of the farm-fresh eggs for sale from the site’s hens and ducks or get grilling. Cooking over coals is allowed at the park (in a firepit or on a raised barbecue so as to avoid spoiling the grass) and Hartington (10 minutes away) has a cheese shop specialising in the sought-after local stilton for jazzing up your burgers, plus tearooms and pubs are here too.
If you can still manage to waddle about after all that food, take the dog off on strolls on the Tissington and High Peak trails close by, rinsing off after long walkies in the basic showers back at the site. Other facilities include a bathroom block with toilets, a chemical disposal point, washing-up facilities, drinking water and ice pack freezing facilities to help keep your food fresh.
Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The fishing’s fantastic hereabouts – ask the owners where to roam with your rod – as are all the subterranean spots for exploring. Poole's Cavern & Buxton Country Park is well worth a wander, while the Pavilion Gardens are tip-top for botanical buffs (both 15 minutes' drive).
Holidaying with pint-sized travellers? Matlock Bath (25 minutes) is a brill option for family-filled days out at the amusement centres or on the kids’ rides at Gulliver's Kingdom, and if anyone in the clan has a sweet tooth, making a beeline for Bakewell (15 minutes) to try the famed tart (or is it a pudding…? either way, it’s delicious) is a must.
From here, it’s another 15 minutes to Chatsworth House, one of the most well-known country homes in England because of its jaw-droppingly huge 1600s facade and massive collections of fancy paintings, Old Master drawings and neoclassical sculptures.
