 Beech Croft Farm is a super site which is only 45 minutes away from our home. The approach is easy with just the very last part being a narrow road but visibility is good with grass verges of both sides should passing be required.

The caravan pitches are level hardstandings with EHU, water taps and aerial points and the toilet block is extremely clean with good covid measures in place. Due to government restrictions the showers weren't open but all other facilities were available including a camp kitchen with microwave and coffee machine, launderette and pot washing area.

The site has its own well-stocked shop with a good range of food and camping products and the staff are very friendly and professional. There is an excellent fully enclosed dog walking field where you can safely allow your dog some off the lead time - this would be fantastic for puppy recall training. There is a nice children's play area too.

There are some fabulous walks directly from the site with the Monsal Trail just 0. 75 miles from the site but, be warned, it is a steep walk down (and obviously back up again)but it is well worth it.

Hope and castleton are about 20-25 minutes drive away with fabulous walks up Mam Tor and Losehill. The villages of Tideswell and Bradwell are nearby with good fish and chip shops and a well=stocked Co-op. Although we didn't try it, there is also a Chinese takeaway in Buxton who will deliver to the site.

We thoroughly enjoyed our May Day weekend stay at Beech Croft and are sure we return again very soon.

 A lovely site. Facilities were modern and very clean. Peaceful atmosphere with lots of long walks near site.

Staff were friendly and always helpful. Really well maintained campsite, where a lot of thought has been put into the campers needs and experience.

Having camped all over world, I'd rate this as one of the best campsites that I have stayed at.

Would definitely recommend

 This is a fantastic site in an excellent location in the heart of the Peak District. They have done everything possible to make guests feel "Covid safe" - hand sanitiser everywhere, plastic screens where needed and lots of helpful signage. The family team who run the site are an incredibly helpful, enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable bunch with lots of advice about where to go and what to see.

It's a site of two halves - hardstanding on the lower tier and camping in the upper section. Means that there are not many completely level camping pitches but the views up there are definitely better! It's an exposed hillside so it can be a bit blowy at times but just ignore the wind and look at the scenery.

Faciites are generally excellent - clean and well-maintained. The only minor downside is that there is a short steep path from the camping field down to the facilities; didn't bother us but worth being aware of before you book.

Local area ia amazing - beautiful scenery and great walking country. Bus stop is a 5 minute walk from the site along a quiet road with regular services to Bakewell and Buxton which are both worth a visit.

You can get to the Monsal Trail on foot in about 20 minutes but this does get VERY busy, especially at the weekend. The Church Inn in Chelmorton is about a 30 minute stroll from the site along quiet roads and footpaths; does brilliant food and very good beer.

Overall, an absolutely excellent site which is highly recommended.

 Excellent site, easy access off the A6. Facilities are very good, ok the showers are the dreaded push button but flow plenty of water. Pitches are large and spacious, open areas are well tended.

Love the first come first pitched idea more sites should do this as its fairer. Local bus pickup to Matlock, Buxton Bakewell ect 600 yds up the road on the A6.

Will we return ? Certainly will.

 The site is the best we have ever stayed on. Clean and organized and yet relaxed atmosphere.

Clearly signed for each function and a dedicated play area also a complete enclosed dog field. Yes I said field.

Simply beautiful.

 A lovely site in a gorgeous area.

Booking was straightforward, all done online. The check-in process was quick, a useful FAQ leaflet was provided and there was a lot of local information available. The reception building also sold various provisions (including gin).

The site is on a slope but the pitches at the top were pretty level. The grass was short and the site looks well maintained.

The facilities were very clean with hand santiser at the entrance and wipes available. Hot showers and plenty of room. No problem with queuing and there's a unisex set of facilities for when the male/female ones are closed for cleaning - a good idea I think. For anyone that struggles with mobility there's a short but steep walk to the camping area unless you go the long way around.

There's a cabin with a microwave in and a hot drinks machine. There's also free wifi although the signal was hit and miss - not a problem as I go camping to escape from emails!

There's plenty to see and do in the area. It's an especially good site if you enjoy walking with such as Mam Tor not that far away and the Monsal trail running behind the site - there's a nice circular walk from the site which uses part of the trail. Bakewell and Buxton are nearby as well as numerous beautiful small villages.

For food, as well as the site shop, there's a Coop in Tideswell around 4 miles away and a Morrisons in Buxton around 5 miles away. Both places also have pub/restaurants and chippies. I tried Elliot's fish and chips in Tideswell, very nice!

All in all an enjoyable stay and a site and area that I will visit again.

 Site was very clean and tidy and peaceful. We didnít use the facilities but they looked like they were kept to a high standard.

The staff in the little shop were very helpful and an excellent source of information. You do need rock pegs, as advised, for the hard standing pitches as they are very hard! Nothing moves in the wind though!

Lots of lovely walks in the area and the scenery is amazing. We will be returning.
