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.

    This may have been a one off but from about 7 o clock Saturday night there was music really loud in a barn just across the road From the site it went on all night till quite late the bumping off the music drove us mad I went to have a look and it was a party in a barn Opposite hence the bass !! Now like I said it may have been a one of but has put us off slightly going back which is a shame as it was so peaceful and nice before that !!

    The views over the area from all the pitches are fabulous. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. There is a very relaxed feeling to the site. The location for both Biggin and Hartington is great. The latter having 2 pubs and 2 tearooms. It’s a beautiful village.

    Lovely and quiet with great views over the fields. Owners nice and friendly. No frills, but this is explained on the website. Easy to book too. Ideal base for exploring Derbyshire. Some pitches are on a slant so make sure you have some blocks for the corner legs. Will definitely be re booking. Adults only site!

    Disliked: 

    No contact on arrival via phone - was told “can’t speak at moment” via text when called mobile - had to ask other guests and make a decision. Not the way to run any business

From the manager...

Sorry you were disappointed. There is usually someone about all day. I was at work when you called and could not answer my phone and my husband was called away at the last minute.

    This is a basic farm touring site, which supplies you with water and electric. However the location is stunning with beautiful walks in every direction. A 20min walk to the pub at Hartington for a lovely meal.
    Owners very friendly and helpful with local information but do not disturb you . If you like quiet sites and beautiful views this site is perfect we will be going back again

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 (6.4 miles)
  • Chatsworth (8.8 miles)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (9.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (5.8 miles)
  • The Old Manor (11.2 miles)
