Pitches

General

  • Peaceful caravan park in the Peak District National Park
  • A 20-minute drive from Chatsworth Estate and 10 minutes from Buxton
  • Award-winning pub within walking distance

A peaceful, well-kept site, within easy reach of Buxton and Bakewell and a short stagger from an award-winning pub – Farditch Farm is quite the Peak District pleaser.

This friendly park in the village of Chelmorton is the place to settle for a little while if you seek your own space; valuing quality over quantity, the owners have elected to set up just a handful of pitches, each one spacious and surrounded by landscaping for the dual win of privacy and pretty colour.

Facilities have been limited to the essentials to maintain an uncrowded vibe. But what essentials they are – the smart central facilities building has a cosy lounge area, games room and communal kitchen, and the adjacent toilet block has all mod cons, including plenty of showers, an accessible bathroom and handy touches including hairdryers.

Skipping out from the site you can your pick from rural rambles on the miles and miles of trails that network the Peak District National Park, sampling the puddings in Bakewell and taking the waters in the spa town of Buxton. Pick up your eats at Chatsworth’s farm shop, 20 minutes’ drive away, or wander down to the local pub, the Church Inn, to see why it’s picked up awards for its offerings (tasty food and a fire by which to sup your pint, perchance?)

  • Liked: 

    Grey waste & water to each pitch, pitches were hard standing, good secure dog run area
    Car parking space in a separate enclosure next to your van on the larger pitches

    Disliked: 

    Road noise from early in the morning, the pitches are quite small, we booked twin axel even though our van isn’t, (it’s 17.37) ok if it’s just your caravan but would be tight with a full sized awning

    Disliked: 

    Lack of toilet; appreciate that it’s COVID times, but many sites have open toilets. Proximity to road.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us and I hope you got to explore some of the beautiful places in the Peak District during your stay.

We believe our decision to keep the facilities closed remains in the best interest of all our guests and staff. We take pride in the standard and cleanliness of these facilities and do not wish to compromise our reputation. It would only take one person to mis-use the services to jeopardise our standards.

We loom forward to welcoming you back again at some point in the future :)

    lovely site and I think it would’ve been so different if it were not for the covid restrictions! It’s in a lovely little place, so clean, and the pitches are well presented. I can see myself sitting and relaxing outside in the summer months, we walked to the pub and had a lovely meal, and after having a few drinks we rolled back. The road can be noisy but.... life has to carry on and after all we were only there 2 nights and to be honest it didn’t really bother us. Can’t wait to visit again. Good luck you’re doing a FAB job 😊

    Spacious pitches with adjacent parking space for a car, ours was a service pitch so was even easier for our first motorhome trip. We were only passing through so sadly didn’t have time to explore.

Glad you enjoyed your first motorhome outing! Hope you will stay another time and have the opportunity to visit some of the lovely places in our area.

Directions

Local attractions

With Chelmorton in the midst of the Peak District National Park, there are heaps of outdoorsy activities within easy reach. Walkers and cyclists have miles of trails to pick from; popular favourites nearby include the Tissington and Monsal trails. Horse riding, canoeing and climbing excursions are also available around the park.

And might you fancy pottering around the country’s fave country house? Then it’s off to Chatsworth, 20 minutes from the site – the Italianate stately home has been voted to the top of the polls several times for its fab collection of art, its stunning state rooms and its gorgeous gardens. There’s also a farmyard and playground here for the amusement of smaller visitors.

Plan to spend a bit of time in both the local towns of Buxton and Bakewell – the former for its grand opera house and elegant spa town heritage, the latter for poking about in the market and sampling its famed sweet treats (which is better – the tart or the pudding? Well, there’s only one way to settle that debate…)

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (13.0 kilometers)
  • Chatsworth (15.4 kilometers)
  • Lyme Park & Gardens (NT) (18.5 kilometers)

  • Winster Market House (16.7 kilometers)
