Lickpenny Caravan Park is located in the heart of the Derbyshire dales and stands within 16 acres of a truly picturesque setting. This tranquil retreat is set above the village of Tansley and near to the towns of Matlock and Bakewell.

The park has an extensive range of facilities, and generous sized pitches. Although our pitches are large we offer a number of extra large deluxe pitches, all of which have their own water, drainage and electric. Being elevated some have fantastic far reaching views.

Entry to the park is by barrier system and for peace-of-mind 24 hour CCTV is in operation.

Lickpenny accept caravans, motorhomes and trailer tents, but not tents.
