We've just enjoyed a weekend at Beechcroft Farm. The site is very well maintained with large, flat, hard standing pitches, each with it's own water point in addition to power point & tv hook up, & free wi-fi.

The toilet/shower block is clean & warm, appreciated at this time of year.

An excellent site with friendly owners & staff.

Based between Bakewell and Buxton, you are in a great place to go shopping, in town, or walking.

The only downside to this weekend was the weather. Rain which limited us to do things with the grand daughter, apart from that great weekend, and no fault of the site at all.

This site is an excellent 10 out of 10, any reviews scoring less have done so due to their own poor planning or other people making too much noise after hours, not the owners fault!

The facilities are spot on

*under floor heating in showers

*unisex toilet/shower units for families

*spotlessly Clean facilities

*large play parks for both younger & Older kids

*cute goats in paddock behind shower block

*Laundry Room (didn't use this facility though)

*large Dog Walking Field, with Pooh bins and a proper path leading up to it.

*wooden Hut with 1 Vending Coffee Machine & Microwave.

*water at Electric Points

*Ideally located for all the sightseeing places in the area.

*Loyalty Card to earn free nights stay

We will definitely be making this site our favourite local weekend getaway for a relaxing weekend. The wardens are friendly, helpful and keep the facilities in Top condition.

Thank You for a great stay, see you very soon

Nice campsite but if you don't like self catering in your motorhome and you like a drink you could have a problem! Two pubs in walking distance the Waterloo (closed) The Queens like somebodys front room and could do with modernising. The campsites facilities are good but I don't understand someone saying that the best ever? The campsite is remote with nothing much in walking distance so walking is about it as good as it gets. I don't like that the site office is not actually on the campsite and for me if you come with a small child you would be bored very quickly. In my opinion this campsite is suitable for adults that are keen walkers only? We wont be returning but only because we found it was not for us.

We've just left Beechcroft Farm after our 3rd visit, this time over the Christmas/New Year holidays. As previously said, the site is very well maintained with large, flat, hard standing pitches, each with it's own water point in addition to power point & tv hook up, & free wi-fi. The toilet/shower block is clean & warm, appreciated at this time of year, & overall better than most 'club' sites, & better value. It's about a 20min walk down to the Monsal Trail, then an enjoyable walk into Bakewell with an hourly bus back, dropping you close to the site by the Trans Peak service. There are a few pubs within walking distance, we enjoy the Church Inn at Chelmorton. Four miles down the A6 into Buxton there is a good Morrisons supermarket & fuel. Regular visitors to Beechcroft get a loyalty card which offers a discount. An excellent site with friendly owners & staff, we'll be back!

Reviewer: SamandRose 6 reviews from this member

In normal circumstances I would love the booking and arrival system that this site operates. You book online or by email. You're sent confirmation by email which includes directions to the pitches, the locations of the electric hook ups and drinking water supply and advised to set up on any empty pitch before going to reception at your leisure to advise which pitch you're occupying.

But the circumstances in which we arrived meant it didn't quite work. It was December. It was dark. It was raining. My torch had died. We had got lost on the way and resorted to using the satnav, which got us back onto our routes by using lanes which might have been fine for ox-carts, but were definitely not fine for caravans. In these conditions, which even meant that we failed to see the water tap on the pitch, setting up left us somewhat irritable, and to then discover that the reception had closed early (it was only shortly after 7pm) did not leave us enjoying our first night all that much.

Which was just unfortunate, because everything else about this site is wonderful. Each touring pitch is hardstanding, of a good size and includes electricity, water, TV point and free Wifi, the toilets and showers are good and clean and the views from the site are stunning. A small play area and a pen with three goats in it will keep children happy. There is a wealth of information on a choice of walks and cycle rides from the site, whilst the nearby towns of Buxton and Bakewell are beautiful.

We will definitely return. But we will make sure that we arrive in daylight.

Used this Site twice this Summer and really liked it. Great location in between Buxton and Bakewell. Excellent facilities and lovely clean Shower Block. There is a play area for kids two Goats in a small field you can walk up to and a large Dog walking area but if you are looking for a value for money quality Site then this isn't a bad choice with electricity on a prepay card meter we used about 4 in one week and we had interior lighting, 2 fridges and a tv and a Halogen fire which was used a few times at night which begs the question why Sites are charging 3 and 4 pound a night? I would have given this 10/10 but there are a couple of drawbacks one camper reported us to the office because of a low noise policy we weren't playing loud music but on a hot night we were talking out on the grass so it wasn't really our fault everyone went to bed at nine, be aware if you are pitching on the grass we haven't found a flat pitch and found ourselves rolling down the bed.

Overall, this may be the best site we've stayed on. A lot of thought has gone into providing excellent facilities. The two touring areas have well-separated hardstandings, each with its own water supply plus hook-up. Behind these are three separate camping areas, some with hook-up (using prepaid card payment. There is a massive (enclosed) dog exercising field, which is separate from a ball game area for the kids. The amenities are spotless: showers and washing up, and a separate camping shelter with a hot drinks machine. The site office has a shop for necessities, and while we were there a visiting mobile tuck shop. There are also good pubs within walking distance (one of which will even pick you up and bring you pack).

As walkers, we appreciated being able to walk straight off the site (the site provides its own excellent walking guides).

There is also lots to do locally, even discount tickets available on site for Chatsworth House. There is free WiFi, and a newspaper service for 10p delivery charge. It is a working farm, but the site is kept separate (apart from two goats which I liked). The owners and site managers are very friendly, there was always someone around to keep things ticking over.

We stayed five nights with our dog; and during our stay did some good walks, as well as relaxing outside our van. With any site the only valid question is, would I want to come back here; and yes, we would love to; so congratulations to the Gregory family and staff: you've more than bettered the club sites; and the icing on the cake - its better value!

We stayed for 5 nights with 1 child and electric hook up. Every pitch has electric hook up available, but you pay the same amount for the pitch, and then pay for the electric separately (in advance, with refunds for any units not used when you leave) - charging two smart phones, two kindles, a tablet and a fitbit, running interior lights and a camping fridge for 5 nights we used 53 pence worth. Definite value for money!

The children's play areas were lovely, but the biggest attraction was the two goats in the field near to the toilet block! Very friendly and our daughter (aged 8) spent a lot of time asking if she could go and see the goats!

Unfortunately, the grass pitches were on quite a pronounced slope, but the toilets and shower block were impeccably maintained, there is also a cabin with a hot drink vending machine and microwave available to use, there's a dog and bike wash and indoor dishwashing and laundry facilities, all of which were very clean every time we went in. There's very little light pollution, so if you want to sit back and look at the stars, even without a telescope, there's plenty visible on a clear night, although there are low lights so you can see getting to and from the loo in the night.

There is a shop at the reception over the road, and it's 8 minutes by car to Brierlow Bar Bookstore (a big draw for us) and about 15 minutes into Buxton. Approximately a mile down the (very steep) Pennine Bridle path from the campsite is the Monsal Trail - it is VERY steep though. And the reception/shop has a number of leaflets available showing a number of walks/cycle routes near to the site mapped out and described, which include lists of pubs in walking distance, rough time to get there and how strenuous the walk is. It's mainly a quiet and peaceful site, we were near(ish) to the under 6 play area, but it never seemed to get loud.

We were very impressed by the amount of information on the welcome brouchure, the way of paying for electric is absolutely fabulous, and the waste recycling policy is definitely a plus point, we would certainly consider visiting again.

Really good site for a base location, facilities were excellent, owners were very friendly, only one criticism was the terms and conditions stated a quiet policy after 2200 hours, unfortunately this was not adhered to or enforced by the owners and the site was very loud until midnight

This campsite was amazing. On our arrival, we followed the lovely signs and arrived at reception, greeted by their friendly staff which are all family. We made an amendment to our booking (adding a person and a tent to our pitch)very easily. The facilities are fantastic, some of the best I have ever been to, always very clean and usually quiet, even though we were there on a weekend. The washing up facilities were fantastic. There was also a new tea and coffee machine, which we had an issue with and were promptly assisted by the owner of the campsite, who fixed the problem for us. The campsite was well lit at night in order to find your way to the toilet! A nice quiet site in a perfect location for exploring the peak district. Would visit again when in the area.
