Lovely site and friendly staff with great facilities in a beautiful area.

We spent two nights here and it was fairly full. This did mean a short queue for the showers (2 in each of the gents' and ladies' and another 2 unisex) but not for long. All spotless and attractive.

What I really liked was the atmosphere: lots of children having a great time in the two play areas, and responsible parents actually looking after them! Never any guarantee of this but it was a pleasure to see. We were also really impressed that the 10. 00 quiet time was observed on both nights and it was incredibly quiet - particularly considering the number of people there.

Nice touches - a shelter for campers which the Duke of Edinburgh expedition used to get out of the wind and rain (special field for them too); and 3 friendly goats to talk to.

Access to the Montsal trail is excellent - fab for cycling and walking.

A great site with very large pitches. The bus passes on the hour to either Buxton or Bakewell so if you want to leave your vehicles behind there are lots to do around the area. There are various walks directly from the site and the whole area is very picturesque.

The showers and pot washing areas are brilliant. Very very clean plenty of them. We had just arrived from a site that hadn't had very good shower / toilet facilities and these were one of the best we have experienced. The large unisex showers are brilliant for families and also if the single sex areas are being cleaned. The mini shop / reception were able to give us lots of information and I would definitely recommend the site.

The only slight draw back was the pitches were all gravel with only a tiny strip of grass but for touring caravans I presume this is the norm.

We weren't in a tent but there was a separate field with plenty of space for children to play.

We have just returned from a weekend visiting this site and what a fantastic site it was. Lovely, very pretty, great setting. The shower and toilet block were clean, modern and tidy. The dog exercise area was again spotless and even had beech croft mown into the grass. The caravan pitches were not too close to each other and nicely spread out.

The welcome was fantastic with lots of useful tips on local walks and places to eat. We were given a nice booklet with how to walk to 4 local pubs for dinner, we tried the Church Inn which was a lovely meal and the we got to walk it off after, perfect.

I would certainly recommend this site and visit again.

What was a great bonus was that there are baked potatoes for sale in the vending until about 7pm which if we had of known in advance I would have just had one on arrival rather than what we did have. We didn't arrive til about 6. 45pm so would have been perfect, but definitely next time as it will save hassle on arrival.

We haven't got children but the kids play area looked great. There isn't much outside the campsite but we were more than happy with that, we were after quiet.

It seems to me that this site is the gold standard, against which all other sites should be judged. The pitches are huge - easily big enough for unit plus awning plus car - hard standing plus some grass at the side to sit out. The tent field is spacious too. There is a superb toilet and shower block with men's, women's and also a mixed sex one which would be ideal for families. There is a washing up room which also has laundry facilities and a freezer for ice packs. It even has a sink you can hand wash clothes in. There is a boot and dog wash. The dog walking field is great. It literally is a whole mowed field. We have two young collies and we were able to let them off the lead in the field and kick and throw balls for them. There is also a separate field for kids with goals to play football, a baseball net and an adventure playground. There is a playground climbing frame for small children too. Small children would also enjoy the little goats and chickens there are about the place. There are plenty of walks available in leaflets in reception. We did 3 during our stay and found them very enjoyable and also easy to follow. Reception also give you both walking and driving details to all the pubs in the area. There is a well stocked shop at reception and it's a well kept site. You could easily settle and enjoy a weeks holiday here. We came for three nights but would definitely come back. There is loads to do in the area:- Bakewell, Buxton, Chatsworth, loads of walking down interesting limestone dales. And the price was very reasonable. I have paid a lot more for a lot less. Would definitely recommend.

Superb site, toilet block/showers one of the best we have seen, wardens very friendly and helpful, access to pitches very easy, lots of places nearby to visit. Very nice pub called the church nearby, thirty minute walk over hill (fairly steep) but worth the effort. Wish we had taken bikes as lots of walks and bike trails nearby. Will use again.

I have stayed at a few campsites around Buxton and Bakewell and I have to say Beech Croft Farm is by far the best. We arrived early on the Friday of the May Bank holiday and was greeted by the friendly owners who told us to pitch where we liked, we pitched in the top field where it was more level as the site does slope slightly, as we pitched up, a famliy of campers pitched next to us, about five tents in all but I have to say they didn't abuse the rules infact all the campers on site were very friendly. As other campers have said the facilities are excellent, modern and very clean but the wifi was a bit hit and miss, what I liked and as yet I've not seen this at any other site is, you get your money back on the electric you don't use as it is a metered box. There are two play areas and three goats to keep the kids amused and a small field for walking the dog. It's great for walkes the Monsal Trail being just behind the site. I definitely recommend Beech Croft and will return hopefully this year.

Just returned from 3 nights at this lovely campsite. The site is clean and quiet. There are excellent shower and toilet facilities which are well heated. There is a small reception with helpful staff, which also stocks some basic provisions. For all dog lovers, there is a dog exercising area and there are a good few walks not far from the sight. Electricity hook up is available via a prepayment card which you can top up as required, and refund unused payment. Friday evening saw the arrival of the Jacket Potato wagon with good choice of fillings. Excellent if you fancy a night off cooking.

Stopped here with van for 5 nights. Quiet. Half full with vans, until Friday, then was full. Only 3 tents though, the rest caravans. Caravans are not allowed to pitch on the grass. Which I found strange! All caravan pitches are hard standing. Facilities were excellent. I only went to the shop/reception on arrival. We have 2 dogs, and the dog walk was good, and a bridleway starts just up the road from entrance. Its about 3 miles to Buxton, and a little further to Bakewell. Nice views.

Excellent site, will use Beech Croft Farm again!

Situated midway between Bakewell & Buxton the approach road is very narrow so be aware that passing another vehicle & caravan coming in the opposite direction might be tricky!

Well sign posted from the main road with good direction signs inside the site.

Good road surfaces on site so no problems reaching the pitches in any weather.

Three areas for caravans/motorhomes all on different levels. We chose to pitch on the highest, furthest away from toilets, showers & reception. Great views.

Level hard standings but you will need heavy duty pegs if using an awning.

Each pitch has its own 'post' where you plug in for electric, TV & water. TV reception is poor so if plugging into the site TV aerial you'll need a fairly long TV cable for some of the pitches (upto 10metres).

The site is warden controlled, well looked after and maintained. A credit to the wardens and owners!

Toilet and shower facilities are excellent with no extra to pay for 24/7 showers!

Reception closes at 5pm, once we'd set up it was closed so I paid my fees the following morning, they also sell some fresh produce. Walk to reception DON'T drive!

Recycling & waste disposal are close by, clean and well managed.

Camping fields looked good and there's a separate field for walking the dogs plus a small area for children to play.

Ours was a midweek break and cost 20. 50 per night for caravan, car, awning, two adults & 2 dogs which is a fair price providing you're going to be using the facilities on offer.

This is one of the best sites we've been to in the 5 years we've been caravanning. The staff are so friendly and helpful and it's in a stunning location with a 360 degree view of open countryside - amazing!

We were so lucky, as it was lambing season, we got to see the lambs which had only been born 3 hours before. There are goats to see and lots of children seemed to enjoy making friends with them.

The shop is adequately stocked with essentials and very reasonably priced. The showers/toilets are immaculate and spacious and well lit and heated. The dog walk is great and our little pup didn't half enjoy running around in the contained area!

This is the only site we have ever booked there and then to return to in the same year. Can't recommend it enough and there's so many beautiful walks and villages to visit. This really is a site for the owners to be proud of!
