Pitches with rural views

General

  • Award-winning family-run rural site close to village and pubs
  • In the Peak District National Park
  • Play area, dog-walking area and friendly farm animals

It’s a fably warm welcome all round at Upper Hurst Farm. Previous guests have heaped praise upon the folk that run the place for their helpful and cheery nature, and there are plenty of furry friends on site too – the farm’s residents include an alpaca, Shetland ponies and a peacock.

This award-winning family-run site is just over a mile from the Derbyshire village of Hartington, 15 minutes' stroll from the village’s family- and dog-friendly pub; if you’d like to take in more of the area’s hostelries there are several within a couple of miles.

Being in the Peak District National Park means the farm is a fab spot for those setting out on walking or bike trails; cast your gaze a little wider and you can also easily hit stately homes, museums, activity centres and caves within half an hour’s drive. And it may not have escaped the kids’ notice that Alton Towers theme park just happens to be about half an hour away.

If you’ve not tired the kids out by day, there’s plenty of space for them to run about and play games at the dedicated play area; there’s also a space for cooped-up canines to let off steam.

The site’s facilities include wifi, a launderette and modern bathrooms with underfloor heating, free hot showers and a large wetroom for guests with reduced mobility or families hosing down wriggly tiddlers.

    Wonderful reception from the warden, she was extremely friendly and helpful. The site is in a stunning location and the facilities were first class and very clean and warm with underfloor heating. Lots of walks from the site, very quiet, no traffic noise. Didn't visit local pub but only 15 mins away and open all day for food, looked inviting, save that for our next visit!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike about our visit, apart from it being too short!

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your review an we look forward to seeing you again.

    What a fantastic site. The welcome from Yvonne was lovely. She showed us to our pitch and to the shower/ toilet block, which I have to say was the best I have seen, (underfloor heating) explained where all the other facilities were too. As we arrived early evening and it was blowing a gale we just wanted to get sited and in for a cuppa.
    It’s a quiet site which is exactly what we wanted. Great place to stay for walkers or non walkers alike. The Manifold Inn is only a short walk or car journey away and they serve fantastic meals.
    We will be going back there, thank you Yvonne and Paul, you keep a beautifully clean and well presented site.
