Pilsbury Lodge Farm: Cows by the site

General

  • 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.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

    There was a lot of space to pitch the tents. The toilet blocks and showers were always clean. The views were amazing and the location is ideal for walks and bike rides.

    Scenery was beautiful and so peaceful. Facilities were super clean! Only came for a night but already thinking of visiting again. Great location close to Buxton if you want to visit there. The only downside is we forgot to purchase some duck eggs! We will be back :)

    Absolutely stunning views! Can't say much about the facilities as we didn't use them as we pitched quite far away from them. But we felt like we were in our own field, it was just beautiful and quiet.

    Great view. Plenty of space, even on a Friday night in half term. Friendly welcome from owner. Not too many pitches so didn’t feel busy or noisy. Good location for areas near Buxton and Leek, very close to cycle trails, nice walks nearby. Fridge/freezer was available for guests. Allows raised fires. Lots of space for kids to run around.

    Disliked: 

    Showers and toilets might become busy at times as there weren’t many of either. However, we didn’t experience queues and the facilities were clean.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (6.5 miles)
  • Chatsworth (8.7 miles)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (11.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (7.4 miles)
  • The Old Manor (13.5 miles)
