Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park, the land on which New House Farm stands has a rich and exciting history. Man has worked this land from prehistoric times, leaving many traces visible on the farm. This sense of history gives the farm a remarkable atmosphere which is almost timeless.
We are a working organic family farm, basic camping, campfires and great views. Plus a very warm welcome!
We offer a ‘back to basics camping experience on our working farm. Our limited facilities are offset by the panoramic views of the Peak District and stunning sunsets to the west.
Basic camping at New House farm means cold water, compost loos, no showers, and meeting the very free range animals and poultry. No electricity hook-up Enjoy the sounds of the countryside without your hair-dryer or DAB radio.
Fire pits are provided free of charge, and wood is available to purchase. There is also a farm shop selling farm produce.
No fixed pitches so campers use a selection of fields dependent on livestock grazing and haymaking.
We charge per person per night. £6 for adults, £3 for children. (No charge for children under 3 years old.)
Well behaved dogs are allowed by arrangement.
The farm shop stocks a wide range of home produced beef and lamb, plus pork products from the rare breed farm down the road. We can also supply salad and fruit in season from the farm.
Our very free range chickens roost in the sycamore in the garden and lay fabulous eggs - we also sell our duck and goose eggs in season.
We do farm walks around our ancient settlement - the Standlow Barrows are on the farm - and our website is worth a visit for the details. The land we farm at New House Farm is rich in Archaeological finds and features.
We have put together an archaeology trail with an accompanying guide book that you can use on your visit to explore the land in more detail and discover 4000 years of human usage.
We are 2 miles from Carsington Water, 3 miles from Ashbourne, 3 miles from the Tissington Cycle Trail to the east, 4 miles from the High Peak Trail to the west, Chatsworth, Alton Towers, Haddon Hall, Matlock, Bakewell, Derby, all within a very short distance.
We are in Kniveton on the B5035 between Wirksworth and Ashbourne. Before the village ignore your sat nav, as it sends you to the wrong place! From Ashbourne, pass the Red Lion pub on your left, and the church on your right. As the road bends to the right after the church, take the lane on the left opposite the bus stop,with the primary school on the corner. After 200 yds there is a crossroads. Take the exit at 1 o'clock - there is a pink pig sign in the hedge on the right. New House Farm is 400 yds on the right.
From Wirksworth, the lane by the school is on your right as you enter the village. Then follow instructions above up the lane.
