Five Acres Farm Campsite: Fields

General

  • Rural and peaceful Peak District farm with animals including llamas
  • A five-minute drive to cycling on the Monsal Trail and 15 to Bakewell
  • Tideswell, Castleton, Bamford and Chatsworth all within 20 minutes

Who needs to organise a hol all the way over in South America when you can linger beside the llamas at Five Acres Farm Campsite in Derbyshire? This park full of furry, friendly animals may not be within spitting distance of treks to Macchu Picchu, but it does have Peak District paths for hikes and cycle rides on the Monsal Trail starting from a five-minute drive away.

The views are also nothing short of lush: the site is surrounded by wide open fields, and walks can be had without needing to get in the car towards the nearest settlement of Wardlow and up to Hay Cop (20 minutes on foot) for a look over the local landscape.

If you’d rather dig into dessert than dawdle, the tarts and puddings of countrywide renown are at Bakewell, the only market town in the Peak District and a 15-minute drive from the site. Not too stuffed to think about stocking up on supplies after sampling the wares? Food stores are here too and other urban areas worth a wander for chocolate-box houses and cutesy craft shops include Tideswell, Castleton, Bamford and Chatsworth, all within 20 minutes.

Plenty other activities can be had in these towns too: Tideswell’s got the impressive St John the Baptist Church to have a gander at; Castleton’s known for its caverns where the famed Blue John stone is mined, and Bamford has three different dams to trek around. Chatsworth, meanwhile, is home to swanky stately mansion Chatsworth House – yep, that one mentioned in Pride and Prejudice and regularly voted Britain's top country house.

    We really liked the location of the pitch and the views that you got across the hills. The pot washing area was great and undercover and the toilets and showers were always clean! The water from the showers was warm, but you need to shower earlier in the day to make sure the shower is warm the whole time!

    Facilities were great, one of the (I'm assuming owners) came and asked if we had any issues with them as she'd had complaints. None of our group could understand it at all. Toilets and showers were clean and worked perfectly
    Services on site (little hut to buy a few bits and bobs)
    Nice view and goats to pet!

    Disliked: 

    Very minor nitpick but there was no bin space left by the time we left. Really not issue at all in the grand scheme of things.

For leisurely walks with typically stunning Peak District views, try Mam Tor or the Ladybower Reservoir (both around 20 minutes’ drive away); hardier hikers can take on an expedition to Kinder Scout, 40 minutes' drive away, to scale the national park’s highest point.

Or, if you’d rather do your sightseeing underground, boat trips through Speedwell Cavern are 20 minutes away...
