General

  • Spacious family-friendly tents-only site in the Derbyshire countryside
  • Chatsworth Estate, Bakewell and Peak District within a half-hour drive
  • Firewood available on site; shops and pubs within walking distance

It’s all about open air and a handy location at this Derbyshire site, a tents-only spot in gorgeous countryside… Yew Tree Farm is well placed for peaceful stays, within walking distance of pubs, small supermarkets and takeaways, and less than 10 minutes’ drive from the town of Alfreton.

The family-friendly site is well set-up for fuss-free stays: it’s on a sizeable field and only a small number of guests are allowed at any one time, so there’s no need to worry about fighting the neighbours for that extra scrap of grass, plus with simple facilities limited to a covered washing-up area and a toilet block with solar-heated showers, there’s nothing too complex to navigate round here (thought it’s a good idea to bring a torch along, as the unlit site can be tricky after dark).

That open space lends itself well to fresh-air frolics, with loads of room for kids and dogs to run about and for supervising grownups to light up barbecues and campfires – no need to forage too far for firewood either, as there are packs for sale on site (please note that the site isn't always manned though, so if you know you'll want a bag of wood please order one in advance).

If all that gadding about isn’t enough activity for kids (or grownups), Peak District National Park is within 15 minutes’ drive – make immediate tracks for walks and hikes, bike rides, climbs and even days of leisure zooming about in a 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton.

Please note

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, customers can amend their dates with the campsite/holiday park free of charge for all stays up to, and including, 12/31/2021.

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

The site cannot allow cars on the field at any time; please bear that in mind when you are packing to come.

    I can honestly say the site was perfect for our needs peaceful clean easy access to local amenities plenty of wood for our camp fire was available at the farm house.
    Was not disturbed, toilets and shower nice and clean. picnic tables were provided that we found very useful.
    Would definatly stay again.
    You can not drive onto grass to unload but field is situated at side of car park so depending on were you set up depends how far you have to carry your stuff but thats all part of the fun of a wild camp.
    Thank you for a very enjoyable stay xx

Local attractions

This is the very edge of Austen country: the Peak District National Park was a major inspiration for Pride and Prejudice, so take a deep dive into that classic era of British history with stops at stunning Chatsworth (used as Darcy’s house in the 2005 movie), Tissington, Hardwick, Sudbury and Haddon. All are within 40 minutes’ drive and highly recommended for a dose of grandeur.

Keep one toe in the past within 15 minutes of the site by slowing everything down for steam engine travels on Midland Railway, or choo-chooing along to Crich Tramway Village for a ride on a vintage tram.

Prefer to escape days of yore? Get out in the fresh air at Carsington Water half an hour away for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing and powerboating or to chance beginner’s luck with a rod and reel. If that’s not something that gets the family trotting happily along, opt for Northfield Farm instead, where everyone can clamber into saddles for horse riding and pony treks.

Nearby Matlock (15 minutes) is a must visit, particularly with kids in tow… take the cable car to the Heights of Abraham, spend a day at Gulliver’s Kingdom and swim over to the aquarium. If that’s all too sedate, head an hour away to the hair-raising rides of Alton Towers.

Must see

  • Hardwick Old Hall (7.8 kilometres)
