- Quiet rural site five minutes' drive from Ashbourne
- A 10-minute drive from the Peak District; 20 minutes from Alton Towers
- Country pub 10 minutes' walk away
Essential ingredients for a rural Derbyshire break? Peaceful spot surrounded by open fields, plenty of space for games/campfires/chilling out, pub a few minutes walk away…
If that little collection sounds just about right, book yourselves into Brook Farm, a well-kept quiet site with no facilities out in the countryside five minutes’ drive from Ashbourne. The views here are mainly made up of various shades of green, in the form of fields and trees, with a few location bonus points thrown in for being on the banks of the Dove river.
There’s plenty of space to play with around this site, but the folk here understand the value of peace and quiet, so they keep a lid on guest numbers rather than cram people in – and thumbs up to that move, as it leaves a great swathe of space for kids/dogs/demob-happy office workers to run around and for barbecues or campfires to be constructed safely away from the action. Beers, buns and burgers for the barbecue can be picked up from the butcher, baker and supermarket in Ashbourne.
Want to stretch your legs further? There are plenty of walks to be had in the surrounds; arguably one of the most rewarding is the one that takes 10 minutes to get to the local pub. The Peak District National Park’s about a 10-minute drive away for more outdoorsy options, and Alton Towers is 20 minutes away if you want to swap rural rambles for rollercoaster thrills.
Open from 03/31/2022 to 01/31/2023

The Peak District National Park is quite simply a fab place to spend a few days roaming around on foot, on bikes, on horseback… If you can’t pick a place to start your explores, perhaps aim for the stepping stones across the valley at Dovedale (15 minutes’ drive), or set out on the Tissington Trail, which heads out of Ashbourne to wend its way along 13 miles of abandoned railway line.
Much excellent wandering can also be done in the grounds of the area’s smart stately homes. Chatsworth (40 minutes) is a fab place to fill a whole day out: as well as the art-filled house and gorgeous gardens, there’s also a farmyard, a kids’ trail and a huge playground area. The National Trust’s Sudbury Hall (15 minutes) and Kedleston Hall (20 minutes) are mighty fine options too.
If you love a good scream as you plummet earthwards on a rollercoaster, a day out at Alton Towers (20 minutes) is a must on the schedule. For somewhat gentler family days out, try an animal encounter at Peak Wildlife Park (15 minutes) or a steam-driven ride on the Churnet Valley Railway (20 minutes).
