General

  • Rural and peaceful Peak District farm with animals including llamas
  • A five-minute drive to cycling on the Monsal Trail and 15 to Bakewell
  • Tideswell, Castleton, Bamford and Chatsworth all within 20 minutes

Who needs to organise a hol all the way over in South America when you can linger beside the llamas at Five Acres Farm Campsite in Derbyshire? This park full of furry, friendly animals may not be within spitting distance of treks to Macchu Picchu, but it does have Peak District paths for hikes and cycle rides on the Monsal Trail starting from a five-minute drive away.

The views are also nothing short of lush: the site is surrounded by wide open fields, and walks can be had without needing to get in the car towards the nearest settlement of Wardlow and up to Hay Cop (20 minutes on foot) for a look over the local landscape.

If you’d rather dig into dessert than dawdle, the tarts and puddings of countrywide renown are at Bakewell, the only market town in the Peak District and a 15-minute drive from the site. Not too stuffed to think about stocking up on supplies after sampling the wares? Food stores are here too and other urban areas worth a wander for chocolate-box houses and cutesy craft shops include Tideswell, Castleton, Bamford and Chatsworth, all within 20 minutes.

Plenty other activities can be had in these towns too: Tideswell’s got the impressive St John the Baptist Church to have a gander at; Castleton’s known for its caverns where the famed Blue John stone is mined, and Bamford has three different dams to trek around. Chatsworth, meanwhile, is home to swanky stately mansion Chatsworth House – yep, that one mentioned in Pride and Prejudice and regularly voted Britain's top country house.

    The scenery, goats, facilities, lots of hand sanitizer and soap, letting us camp in the field with our campervan and tent, and firewood and fire pits provided! Amazing walks from the site, and a pub to stop off in on the way back.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike about the site itself. Was cold and windy for us but that's camping!

    Just spent the most relaxing weekend camping at Five Acres Farm with my wife and three of our sons. Lovely folk running the place, most helpful and welcoming. Toilets always clean and well stocked with loo roll. Plenty of space to pitch up. Lovely hills nearby to go walking. Our youngest son especially liked spending time with Freddie and Jim, the pygmy goats and the sheep, Suzie and Sarah. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Rachel and Steve have done a great job here and we will definitely be back next year!

Local attractions

If guests do decide to give pedal pushing on the 8.5-mile and traffic-free Monsal Trail a go, they can use it to reach Bakewell, stopping at Monsal Head on their merry way for views of the River Wye and the Headstone Viaduct.

For leisurely walks with typically stunning Peak District views, try Mam Tor or the Ladybower Reservoir (both around 20 minutes’ drive away); hardier hikers can take on an expedition to Kinder Scout, 40 minutes' drive away, to scale the national park’s highest point.

Or, if you’d rather do your sightseeing underground, boat trips through Speedwell Cavern are 20 minutes away...
