Nearby

It's a 5-minute walk into the village, where there are two good pubs (see Food & Drink), a medieval church and a playing field with a playground and tennis court. Carry on and you quickly hit the Monsal Trail, a popular, car-free trail that runs along the former Midland Railway line for 8½ miles between Blackwell Mill, in Chee Dale and Coombs Road, at Bakewell. The route takes you through some of the Peak District's most spectacular limestone dales – bring bikes to make the most of it – with a handful of dramatic tunnels along the way (lighting throughout). Headstone Tunnel and a beautiful bridge across the River Wye are just a mile from the campsite and make up one of the most spectacular bits of the route. The Derbyshire Dales National Nature Reserve is also just up the valley, while 3 miles downstream is the village of Bakewell, famous for its tasty tarts but also a hive of independent shops and outlets that are worth nosing around. It's 5 miles to Chatsworth House (024 6565 300), which took almost 200 years to build and is well known from such films as Pride and Prejudice and The Duchess, and the same distance to medieval Haddon Hall (01629 812855) via Bakewell.

Food & Drink

The campsite has a small shop that sells the farm's own meats, eggs, cakes and treats, while the village is also host to a local shop and 3 great pubs, The Crispin Inn (01629 640237; bar full of trinkets and well-kept ales and a good beer garden) and The White Lion (01629 640252; a more modern feel), both just a 5–10-minute walk down Moor Road. In the opposite direction, The Packhorse Inn (01629 640471; ales on tap from Bakewell's Thornbridge Brewery and a cracking location) in Little Longstone can be reached via a combination of footpath and a short distance on road. If you're going to the Monsal Trail and the Monsal Head bridge, there's a popular bar in The Monsal Head Hotel (01629 640250;) and also a café – Hobbs Café (01629 640346) – both about 1 mile from the campsite by the Monsal Head car park.

Lovely setting

Our first time in a rented motorhome. Stayed 3 nights here. Facilties were the best we come across in our 2 weeks travelling. Superb clean, warm ( weather changed to wet and windy). I have a fractured kneecap requiring a full leg plaster so had to use the family/disabled facilities which were fantastic. Staff really helpful too.

Gorgeous escape

First time camping in a yurt and we loved it, so clean, cosy and equipped with everything we needed to cook and make hot drinks. The campsite was peaceful with beautiful views and the toilet/shower block was absolutely pristine. All this within walking distance of some great pubs too, winner! We will be back next year thank you!

One of the best UK sites

This was our second stay there this year and it was just as perfect as the 1st! We celebrated our 20th anniversary there this year due to travel restrictions and we had a fantastic time.the site is perfectly positioned to access and explore the peak district,it was always spotless and so quiet. Even the local wildlife were friendly we had the farm cat a hedgehog and a barn owl all visit showing how rural and perfect the site is.if you want to get away from it all and just enjoy nature surrounded by others who want the same this is the site to pick. The owners were always friendly and helpful we will return there next year again. Highly recommended to anyone but not too many or we may not get in again....a gem in a beautiful county.

A Great Site

We had a 4 night stay at Dale Farm in September - an absolutely lovely campsite with the best facilities that we have ever seen whilst camping around the uk. The unisex toilet block was immaculate with high quality fixtures, excellent showers and cubicles and never felt too busy. Very friendly and quiet site with good access to local pubs, shops and the Monsal Trail. Highly recommended site that we intend to return to next year. Lots to do in the local area, the Monsal Trail is flat if you want to cycle and beautiful scenery!

Getting There

Head east out of Great Longstone village, turning into Moor Road as Main Street becomes Butts Road. Continue for about 400m until you reach a lane on the left with signs for Dale Farm. Follow this lane for 100 metres until you find the campsite entrance on your right. (Please note that using the postcode with sat nav will often leave you a little short on Moor Road. Continue until you see the sign).
