Greencroft Caravan Site: Pitches on site

General

  • Scenic grassy site in the Peak District National Park
  • A 15-minute drive from Bakewell and 25 from Matlock and Buxton
  • On a 170-acre farm a 20-minute drive from Chatsworth House

Fancy living out your wildest Jane Austen dreams? Head along to Greencroft Caravan Site, a family-friendly spot on the outskirts of Derbyshire village Middleton-by-Youlgreave and 25 minutes’ drive from Buxton.

The site is well-placed in the stunning Peak District National Park, placing guests within easy reach of leisurely ambles – and what’s a good Austen hero or heroine without some moody strolls – including the High Peak Trail and Tissington Trail (10 minutes away at Parsley Hay), and Monsal Trail, which starts 20 minutes away on Coombs Road.

The connections don’t stop there either, as it’s just 20 minutes from the site to Chatsworth House, a spectacular 17th-century stately home that was name-dropped in the original Pride and Prejudice novel, and which doubled as Pemberley in both film adaptations.

After lengthy days of explores and hours of gliding around grand houses, return to the site for peaceful stays on a
170-acre beef farm. There are sprawling and scenic vistas from here over the valley where the Bradford, the Wye and the Derwent rivers meet, and nothing to disturb the peace but gentle moos from the resident cows.

Please note

Tents are not accepted at this park.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Beautiful site, with lovely views. James was incredibly helpful, and his Father too.

    Disliked: 

    Incredibly minor, waste water could do with a little trim - as it’s surrounded by stinging nettles. However, expect it’s coming to the end of a season

Local attractions

Passion for stately piles stoked by Chatsworth? Luckily there’s no shortage of alternatives hereabouts: it’s a 20-minute drive to Haddon Hall; Kedleston, Sudbury (and its museum of childhood) and Hardwick are within about 45 minutes; and the Georgian-era Melbourne Hall is an hour away.

Taking to the saddle, bike hire is handily close by at Parsley Hay and Hassop Station, both within 20 minutes. Prefer to tour in style? Sign up for a vintage tour in an old Ford Phaeton, taking in dams and dales, train tracks and troglodytes, moorlands and local munch.

For urban days, there’s plenty round here to choose from. Start by indulging a sweet tooth 15 minutes away in Bakewell, home of the Bakewell pudding, before travelling on to Buxton spa town (25 minutes) to swing from the trees at Go Ape and dive below the surface at Poole’s Cavern (plus lots more).

Keen on entertaining the whole family in one easy day? Head to Matlock 25 minutes from base, where the Heights of Abraham alpine cable car offers up views, Gulliver’s Kingdom theme park has rides and adventures for younger kids, and there are a handful of museums for mum and dad.

For more hair-raising adventures, it’s less than 40 minutes to Alton Towers.
