General

  • Peaceful back to basics site in the Peak District National Park
  • Five minutes' drive from Tideswell and the Monsal Trail
  • A 10-minute drive from Bakewell and 20 from the Chatsworth Estate

What a little Derbyshire gem: back to basics Whitehouse Farm Campsite is a simple site in a most scenic setting five minutes’ drive from the pretty village of Tideswell.

The site’s central location in the Peak District National Park means it’s a top spot for those who want to ramble or ride bikes – several circular trails leave from Tideswell and the traffic-free Monsal Trail is a five-minute drive away. And there’s plenty more activity if you require it too, as activity centres nearby can sort you out days of horse riding, abseiling, climbing and caving.

All this activity isn’t mandatory, of course – this is an equally fine location for days pottering off to local pubs, pigging out on pudding in Bakewell or taking a leisurely stroll around the Chatsworth Estate, 20 minutes away.

And if even that’s too much, you’d be welcome to spend some time loafing about on site: there’s heaps of space here, and as facilities have been kept quite minimal (just showers and toilets) there should be a good serving of peace and quiet to go with it all.

Guests are welcome to light up a barbecue or campfire for cookouts and keeping warm; Tideswell’s the place for supermarket supplies, and it’s also handily got a chippy and a couple of pubs for days when your firelighting skills aren't up to much.

    One of the best campsites we have stayed at! Picturesque views and perfectly situated for visiting this beautiful part of England. Lovely clean toilets and definitely the best showers we have ever had at a campsite! Having stayed at many 'back to basics' campsites (mostly without amenities like this!) we must say that this one is lush! The owner James is a top bloke and we will definitely be returning!! (Sorry it's took so long to leave a review, must have been too chilled out after our stay on 13-15th sept!)

    Disliked: 

    After reading so many reviews we were expecting to party until the early hours but instead it was devilishly quiet and we ended up sleeping for a solid 9 hours each night!! Unlike some we do not wish to hide behind a keyboard to moan about a site which is as close to perfect as you can get especially at such a good price!!! Please ignore negative reviews and try it out for yourself!!!

  • Liked: 

    Very accessible site and ideally located for exploring the local area.

    The ground is fairly level and easy to pitch on, no issues with pegging.

    Toilet facilities are good and cleaned daily, there was running water and hand washing.

    There was also facilities for washing your pots and pans.

    The owner is extremely friendly and welcoming, the site had a positive vibe.

    Great for families and small groups.

Local attractions

Boots and bikes at the ready – this is a frankly fab area for both ways of gadding about. Quiet lanes and footpaths await just outside the site, and there are hundreds more to explore around the national park. A popular pick is the Monsal Trail, a nine-mile traffic-free stretch along a disused railway line, steaming its way through cuttings and tunnels.

If you want to get up closer to the local limestone geology, an activity centre 15 minutes’ drive away can sort you with days of climbing, caving or abseiling. For an easier way to access the underground, take the 20-minute drive to the Blue John Cavern for a tour of the subterranean scenery.

Fuel whatever antics you’ve chosen with a trip to Bakewell, 10 minutes away, to feast on the famed local puddings and tarts. For more foodie treats, there’s a fine farm shop at the Chatsworth Estate, 20 minutes away, so it’s worth calling in there once you’ve had a tour of the house, wandered through the gorgeous gardens and/or let the nippers loose at the woodland playground.

Must see

  • Chatsworth (9.4 kilometres)
  • Haddon Hall (9.5 kilometres)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (20.8 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (15.6 kilometres)
