Farditch Farm: Pitches

General

  • Peaceful caravan park in the Peak District National Park
  • A 20-minute drive from Chatsworth Estate and 10 minutes from Buxton
  • Award-winning pub within walking distance

A peaceful, well-kept site, within easy reach of Buxton and Bakewell and a short stagger from an award-winning pub – Farditch Farm is quite the Peak District pleaser.

This friendly park in the village of Chelmorton is the place to settle for a little while if you seek your own space; valuing quality over quantity, the owners have elected to set up just a handful of pitches, each one spacious and surrounded by landscaping for the dual win of privacy and pretty colour.

Facilities have been limited to the essentials to maintain an uncrowded vibe. But what essentials they are – the smart central facilities building has a cosy lounge area and communal kitchen, and the adjacent toilet block has all mod cons, including plenty of showers, an accessible bathroom and handy touches including hairdryers. A cycle storage area is available on request, with secure storage and bike wash point.

Skipping out from the site you can your pick from rural rambles on the miles and miles of trails that network the Peak District National Park, sampling the puddings in Bakewell and taking the waters in the spa town of Buxton. Pick up your eats at Chatsworth’s farm shop, 20 minutes’ drive away, or wander down to the local pub, the Church Inn, to see why it’s picked up awards for its offerings (tasty food and a fire by which to sup your pint, perchance?)

Thank you for your review, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us.
The road can get busy during the day but this generally dies down at night.
Unfortunately it is busier than usual due to road closures in the area.

Fantastic site with immaculate facilities. Would recommend.05/17/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Electric gravel and cement/asphalt campervan pitch (small)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The facilities are immaculate. Bathroom and kitchen were sparkling. Very good showers. Had a better shower there than I do at home! Beautiful views.

    Disliked: 

    The only slight disappointment was our pitch. It was pitch 18 (for smaller campers) and you park tight to a shed which means you can't really walk around your camper. To get in and out I climbed over the passenger seats. There are two other pitches behind you so you have people walking right past your van and that is where the other two drive through to get in and out so I felt I couldn't really put my outdoor chairs out. Your basically parked in a gateway. I think it's a bit of a stretch to use this as a pitch. So I was disappointed about this and wish I had known at the time of booking but it wouldn't stop me from going back again. I'd just make sure I didn't have that pitch.

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments.
Unfortunately the main site was fully booked, there is a big open field next to you which is open to all guests to use.
We do plan to put some benches in the top part of the field near the trees so customers can sit out and enjoy the sun in the near future. But getting hold of outdoor furniture of good quality is proving to be very difficult at the moment.
The area was opened up earlier than planned due to the increase in bookings.
We look forward to welcoming you back again at some point in the future.

Thank you for your comments, we are sorry we did not meet your expectations.
Buxton is only a short 10 minute drive where you will find lots of independent shops along with supermarkets, who will deliver to site. The Church Inn is about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the site in the village of Chelmorton.

    Nice and quite site, there is a road running past but as we are used to traffic noise it did not bother us and it was less busy at night.
    Facilities were very good and clean, also no silly push buttons on the showers, was a bonus. Each pitch was serviced with water, power and drain.

    Disliked: 

    Being picky as it did not bother us, It is in the middle of nowhere so need to travel for any other service, can walk local area but this is along roads.

Directions


Please check a map rather than relying on sat nav directions as the site's rural location means that some local lanes are not suitable for towing a caravan.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

With Chelmorton in the midst of the Peak District National Park, there are heaps of outdoorsy activities within easy reach. Walkers and cyclists have miles of trails to pick from; popular favourites nearby include the Tissington and Monsal trails. Horse riding, canoeing and climbing excursions are also available around the park.

And might you fancy pottering around the country’s fave country house? Then it’s off to Chatsworth, 20 minutes from the site – the Italianate stately home has been voted to the top of the polls several times for its fab collection of art, its stunning state rooms and its gorgeous gardens. There’s also a farmyard and playground here for the amusement of smaller visitors.

Plan to spend a bit of time in both the local towns of Buxton and Bakewell – the former for its grand opera house and elegant spa town heritage, the latter for poking about in the market and sampling its famed sweet treats (which is better – the tart or the pudding? Well, there’s only one way to settle that debate…)

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (13.0 kilometres)
  • Chatsworth (15.4 kilometres)
  • Lyme Park & Gardens (NT) (18.5 kilometres)
