Hardstanding

General

  • Peaceful site in the grounds of a traditional Derbyshire village pub
  • Peak District and Matlock within 25 minutes, Alton Towers in an hour
  • Pub restaurant, takeaway and play area

Settle in for peaceful stays at Sitwell Arms, a family- and dog-friendly site in the grounds of the Sitwell Arms traditional country pub in the Derbyshire village of Morton.

This is a top spot for scenic wanders and explores: the site is 25 minutes’ drive from the edge of the Peak District, where there are hikes and climbs for the energetic and leisurely rides in vintage cars for everyone else – for those more at home in the saddle, it’s less than five minutes from long-distance national cycle route 67 and 15 minutes from pony trekking rambles in Matlock.

Keep energy up for canine pals and the rest of the family by bringing along bits to throw on the barbecue; you might also like to start every day with a full English breakfast in the pub (seven days a week) and order up evening meals in the pub from Tuesday to Sunday. (Please note that food isn't available after 3pm on Sundays; however, guests are very welcome to have lunch until then.)

When lazy site days are an absolute requirement, grind to a halt on the (slightly sloping) leafy pitch, which is dotted with picnic tables for afternoon bites and games, dispatch kids to the playground to stave off boredom, soak up some Sunday sun while watching the cricket on the village pitch next door, or retreat indoors for a game of pool in the bar.

    Lovely chilled out site, in a quiet village, with fabulous hosts Jean and Mel who couldn’t do enough for us. I booked hard standing when in fact I wanted grass pitch and straight away they moved things around to accommodate me and my indecisiveness 😀 We ordered an English breakfast, one veggie, and was freshly cooked and delivered, with a pot of tea, straight to our camper van within 15 mins. (Saved on all the washing up the morning we left for home). Cheers guys again. We will be back again for sure 👍.
