Spacious 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

This site has no on-site toilet and shower facilities.

Tents are not accepted at this park.

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

    A beautiful site with stunning views of the surrounding Peak District. Located on a beef farm we were lucky enough to see the birth of a calf and other new mothers with their calves. A rare treat. A 20 minute walk into the nearby village of Youlgreave where there was a choice of pubs all serving delicious food. A perfect base for relaxing or walking. Would definitely recommend.

    Levelling blocks available if required. Plenty of walks from the site, within walking distance of the pub (about 2 miles) monsal trail not far away.
    Cows in fields around the site, Peacock’s close by,
    Perfect location for Bakewell and Matlock

    Disliked: 

    Advice only - narrow lanes getting to the site, and you will need levelling blocks

    The peaceful, laid back atmosphere was just what we wanted for our first motorhome use. As a first timer, Jamie saved us a level pitch which was ideal for us.
    A small site with pitches around a central field, all grass with EHU.
    Lots of nearby walks including being close to a Poetry Walk and dog friendly.
    Within 30 mins of Chatsworth House.

    Friendly owner who was quick to act when the site electric tripped. Only took a phone call and all was sorted quickly without any fuss.
    Electric, water and waste included in the cost.

    Situated in hilly location so maybe not suitable for people who like to wander off site that may have mobility difficulties.
    Both WiFi and mobile signal were fine on Virgin mobile.

    Disliked: 

    There wasn’t anything we disliked although some of the pitches would only be for braver than me.

    Our Sat Nav took us up “Rake Lane” which was incorrect. Go past the church on the left and up the hill on the left. Well signed from the road.

From the manager...

Hi Gary, would just like to say that we don't pretend that there are any shops or pub in the village of Middleton, and also you're correct that not all the pitches are flat, but in many ways because you stayed over an hour after the 11am departure time to wash your caravan... At least the water was able to drain away and not leave the pitch wet for our next guests.
Many thanks.
James

    Beautiful location & very friendly owners. The site is perfectly located for exploring the Derbyshire Dales. There are lots of walks from the site & many more a short drive away. Recommend taking an OS map to take full advantage. Intermittent phone signal & no WiFi - what a bonus!! If you're looking for a quiet rural location this could well be the site for you. Motorhome or caravan take some levelling ramps & blocks. The sat nav takes you to the centre of the village. Drive down the road with the church on the left & the site is 100 yards past the church on the left. Enjoy

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.

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (3.0 miles)
  • Chatsworth (5.4 miles)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (7.0 miles)
