General

  • Award-winning family-run rural site close to village and pubs
  • Located in the Peak District National Park
  • Play area, dog-walking area and friendly farm animals

Upper Hurst Farm is an award-winning family-run site close to the village of Hartington in the Peak District National Park. The rural site is within walking distance of a family- and dog-friendly pub, with several other pubs a couple of miles away.

The area around the site has several lovely walking/cycling routes along with attractions including stately homes, museums, activity centres and caves. The popular theme park Alton Towers is around half an hour's drive away.

Among the animals on the farm are alpacas, Shetland ponies, Jacob’s sheep and a peacock, all of which have proved to be popular with kids. It’s also a great area for wildlife spotting, and birdwatching in particular: owls, buzzards and red kite are among the birds that have been spotted here. The farm has created a dedicated play area for kids to run around and play games, and also maintains a dog exercise area.

The site’s facilities include free wifi, a launderette with washing machine and tumble dryer, and a kitchen with washing-up area. Modern bathrooms have underfloor heating, free hot showers and a large wet room that’s suitable for guests with reduced mobility and families with small children.

  • Liked: 

    Water on every pitch along with drain so no trudging across site for water. Central re-cycling point with chemical toilet disposal Close to all pitches. The whole site was scrupulously clean and well maintained. Showers fantastic, hot, free and clean with lots of hooks for clothes.

    Disliked: 

    Flakey TV reception and no phone signal for 90% of the time but free WiFi made up for this.

    It was a lovely well managed site. Nice clean showers and toilets. Great seeing the ponies and livestock in the surrounding fields. The management Paul and his wife were lovely and very accommodating. I would recommend it as a peaceful place to stay

    Disliked: 

    Nothing in the surrounding area walkable.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. We are very rural but right in the centre of of everything. Bakewell, Buxton, Ashbourne and Leek are all 10 miles. Two spectacular limestone dales (Beresford Dale leading to Dovedale or Hartington and the Manifold Valley leading to Wetton Mill and Thors cave are just 1 mile from the site so very walkable. The Manifold Inn pub is child friendly and dog friendly and is about 0.7 mile so very walkable.

I guess it depends on the definition of walkable!
