General

  • Peaceful site on a smallholding two miles from Tideswell
  • 45 minutes' drive from the Chatsworth Estate
  • Back-to-basics site with eco-friendly bathroom facilities

A peaceful Peak District farm stay, with stunning scenic views and well away from main roads? Or maybe you’d rather the convenience of being just a couple of miles from a village for easy access to a supermarket, pubs and a takeaway chippie supper?

Have a stay at Bushey Heath and you can indeed have both – this Derbyshire smallholding site is a couple of miles from the amenities of Tideswell, so you can walk down there in 45 minutes or so when the need takes you, or you can stick around on site for fresh air and rural antics. Walkers, climbers and cyclists will find plenty to keep them busy nearby, and there’s a woodland area just next to the site that doubles as a popular play area for the nippers.

However you choose to fill your days, you should be in for a good night’s sleep here – no music is allowed on site, to give all guests the chance for serene slumbers. Facilities have been kept suitably low key, too, and given an eco-friendly edge where possible. The unisex toilet block has proper loos (with rainwater flush system) and showers heated from a ground source heat pump, and electricity is cleverly provided by the site’s own turbine. There’s also a cold water tap and recycling bins.

    Lovely campsite of the more basic kind, but that's what we like and why we chose it! Friendly welcome from the site owner and we were allowed to pitch up wherever we wanted. Sheep in the field next door so we woke up to hear them baaing. Great rural location for walking and visiting the sights of the Peak District. Would definitely come back.

    Disliked: 

    Showers require 5 20p pieces which can be hard to come by in an increasingly cashless society.

  • Liked: 

    The quiet and peaceful area, and the endless walks around the site

    Disliked: 

    The washing up facilities were not great as the water was very cold and the sink was small. The drinking water tap should be signposted better than it is as it’s very misleading. Toilets were sometimes left with no toilet roll.

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

    Pitches under trees (useful in the rain) and the views. There were a variety of pitches some more sheltered than others depending on the weather conditions. Nice quiet basic site. The nearest pub (newly opened), a mile or two down the road in Little Hucklow is a gastro pub for true foodies and about £25-35 a head for 2 courses if you don't have the specials.

    Disliked: 

    I wish the washing up sink was better and bigger. It drained onto the ground which made it wet and muddy. Someone had not emptied their pot into the bins fully and there was pasta on the ground.

Local attractions

It’s a good idea to come prepped for action: you’re in a prime Peak District position here, within easy reach of lots of walks and bike rides. Top local picks include a canter around Castleton (five miles away) to see medieval Peveril Castle, climb Mam Tor or delve into the caverns around the town – particularly the rather fine Blue John Cavern.

Those exploring by bike may well like to start with a ride on the Monsal Trail, five miles away. If you’re all set for a scramble, head to the rocks of Froggatt Edge (15 minutes’ drive) or Stanage Edge (25 minutes). Fuel and/or reward for all such efforts can be found at the ice cream shop in Bradwell (10 minutes away) or by heading off to Bakewell (20 minutes) to feast on its famed puddings and tarts.

If you’ve never been before, set forth with haste to the Peak District’s top attraction, Chatsworth Estate, 45 minutes away. You’ll easily fill a day over here strolling around the stately home and gardens, perusing the produce in the farm shop or paying visits to the farmyard or adventure playground.

Must see
