Mixed pitch

General

  • Adults-only site on a scenic smallholding in the Peak District
  • A mile from Hartington and 20 minutes’ drive from Buxton and Bakewell
  • Dog-friendly walks right from the park on ancient routes and trackways

If you’re after a blissful base in the Peak District, Chapel Farm Caravan Park – set on a smallholding with first-rate views over the surrounding countryside – might just be your kind of place.

But before you click book and start packing the kids and smart devices, it’s to be noted that this Derbyshire destination has two key USPs to make it even more of a restful respite: an adults-only policy and limited mobile phone signal…

This is a place to digitally detox among the lush greenery or ask the dog if they want to go walkies – four-legged friends are permitted at the park as long as they’re well-behaved and kept on a lead. Set off on trails from the grounds through ancient routes and trackways, past old stone cottages and buildings like the early 17th-century Hartington Hall (a mile) and Charles Cotton Hotel (a mile and a half).

People-pleasing Peak District paths are also close by – dawdle over to Beresford Dale, leading to Wovescote Dale and the famed Dovedale limestone valley stepping stones (25 minutes’ drive), then head to Upper Dove valley on quieter trails enroute to the Norman-era Pilsbury Castle and Crowdecote village (15 minutes).

Prefer to potter with a bit more purpose? Venture to the villages of Hartington and Biggin (both less than a mile and a half) to run errands at the local shops or, better yet, to pull up a pew at one of the pubs.

This site is fully committed to getting visitors back to basics, so it has no showers or toilets, but a chemical disposal point is available.

Please note

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

Tents are not accepted at this park.

Chapel Farm Caravan Park, the place to go in Derbyshire. …10/24/2020

    Chapel Farm Caravan Park, the place to go in Derbyshire.
    On arrival the farmer broke away from his busy work to show my wife and I all we need to facilitate our stay.
    He gave us a choice of pitches and we could even rotate our caravan which ever way we liked, which I thought was excellent. I’m not going to talk about the amazing views and location because everybody else already has.
    It rained every day but some how the water filling point with bark mulch on the floor and private 1.8m high fencing remained clean and mud free. There was also p.p.e available for use. If you feel you need to be connected to the world, O2 there is no phone signal however 4g was obtainable on BT mobile.
    The free view transmitter is approximately 3 miles west with up to 96 channels available. If you are bringing an awning for you caravan and why not as there is loads of room, then you’d be wise to ensure you have some beefy ground pegs to knock in. The ground had a hard footing so there should be no problem with vehicle traction.
    As there are not many pitches, you are not hemmed in like some sites so it is excellent for social distancing in these uncertain times.
    I only met the farmer once on arrival and we we’re not disturbed during our stay, but first impressions were that this man made you feel welcome and was genuinely there to help should you need it - top bloke.
    Chapel Farm is exactly what is says on the tin. It is one of the best sites we have been to and we would highly recommend this site to anyone.

Local attractions

Chapel Farm’s in the south of the Peak District National Park, an area known for its limestone scenery as well as spa towns like Buxton (20 minutes’ drive). Referred to as the most complete Regency town in the UK, this Georgian-era settlement is worth a look for an amble around the shops of the Cavendish Arcade set inside the original thermal baths.

Just outside town, pootle towards the limestone Poole’s Cavern or go further to Castleton (40 minutes) in the High Peak for four show caves, including Blue John Cavern where the semi-precious Blue John mineral is mined.

Have a gander at other eye-catching attractions in the area too on trips to stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, both half an hour from the site, or drive the 20 minutes to Bakewell and feast your eyes on the lovely River Wye setting while sating your stomach with a Bakewell pudding.

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (10.3 kilometers)
  • Chatsworth (14.1 kilometers)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (14.8 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (9.3 kilometers)
  • The Old Manor (18.1 kilometers)
