Beech Croft Farm

Nr. Buxton, Derbyshire

We have the Covid secure certificate & the 'Good to Go'

Beech Croft Farm is a small, family run campsite near Buxton in Derbyshire, a super place to pitch if you want to explore the Derbyshire Dales or the Peak District National Park while on your holidays.

John Julie and Jodie Gregory own and run this campsite on their small beef farm. There are 30 hardstanding pitches suitable for motorhomes and touring caravans, and all these pitches have 16A electric hook-ups, water taps and TV aerial sockets with a digital signal. The owners recommend you use rock pegs when erecting an awning – these can be bought at the campsite's shop.

If you're staying here in your tent, there are three camping areas to choose from, all grass pitches have access to 10A electric hook-up purchased on a prepayment card system. If you're sleeping under canvas, you are sure to appreciate the Campers Cabin, where you will find a hot drinks vending machine as well as a microwave oven.

Please note that in the winter November to March the site is only open for hard standing pitches

The amenities block has underfloor heating and is divided into three areas: men, women and unisex. There are also disabled facilities. The block is heated and has toilets, basins, private washing cubicles and showers. There are shaver points in the gents area, hair dryer points in the ladies area. You'll also find a dish washing area, a laundry room, chemical toilet disposal facilities and a motor home drive over grey waste disposal point.

You're welcome to bring your dog if you're staying at Beech Croft Farm, but ensure they are well behaved and please clean up after them. There is a dedicated dog exercise area on site – and you might appreciate the dog, boot and bike was area after muddier excursions.

In addition, this campsite has been granted the Visit Englands Gold Award and the AA Quality Inspected Gold Award for exceptional quality of accommodation & customer service and also the David Bellamy Gold Award for conservation.

The aforementioned shop is licensed & also sells groceries, ice creams, soft drinks and local produce, as well as Calor and Camping Gaz, plus guides to the local area, to help you find your way about. There's also a ball games area and a children's play area, and Wi-Fi is free too.

This really is a lovely and very peaceful place to pitch on your motorhome tours and camping and caravan holidays in the Peak District – yet being just a few minutes off the A6, this is also an accessible and easy to get to campsite. It ia also a five minute walk from the bus stop.

The village of Taddington is about a five-minute drive away where you can visit The Queens Arms Pub- or a similar distance in the opposite direction you have the village of Chelmorton which is home to the fabulous Church Inn pub.

Of course, one of the primary attractions in this part of the country is the pull of the great outdoors, being within the Derbyshire Dales and in the heart of the Peak District National Park. On the doorstep is the Monsal Trail, the Limestone Way & the Peninne Bridleway. Go walking either just with a group of family/friends or on a guided walk, or take to one of the many cycle trails that criss-cross this area. There are lots of places where you can hire bikes so there is no excuse – there are even tandems, electric bikes, tricycles and mobility scooters for hire, so everyone can get out and about.

Open all year.

I pre-booked a motorhome pitch at the Beech Croft Farm Camping & Caravan Site in Blackwell, a small hamlet just off the A6 between Buxton and Bakewell. I phoned to pre-book and the lady in Reception was very helpful and informative and I paid a deposit.

We arrived at the campsite at about 1100 on the Saturday morning. I walked over to the Reception and was warmly welcomed and invited to take my pick of pitches. The site was very busy even in February (a sign of its popularity) and we had arrived before the normal midday checkout time, but there was a pitch available in the higher area. This came with EHU, water supply and a TV socket. The lady who checked us in also took the time to explain how to get to the local pubs and local walks from the site - this was really helpful as we planned to do both! The site has some excellent facilities, including a toilet/shower block with underfloor heating and a well-stocked shop. Also, in the morning, there is a breakfast van that visits aimed primarily at campers but also perfect for lazy motorhomers! Coupled with peace, quiet and great views, this is a perfect site for exploring a lovely part of the Peak District. The site was perfect for us - quiet with great views, yet well equipped and very well-maintained. We'll certainly be returning.

just back from 3 nights at beechcroft farm with our twin axle lunar.
nice site, very easy access and plenty of manouvering space to pitches - all hard standing, with water, & tv to every pitch. Best views from top field - lovely panorama of rolling hills. Friendly owners,brand new toilet block - best showers ever!
weather was very kind to us, but great walks all around, wild flowers like you've never seen. Best walk was a stunner, from the site down to the river Wye, along cheedale, and back to the van. Loads of trails for cycling and walking tho they get very busy (and worse at weekends, i gather)Better to go either early or late in the day, or use the footpaths instead, which are much quieter due to everyone taking the easier trail routes!!
We would highly recommend both the site and the area.

Hi Julie,

We would just like to thank you on an outstanding camp site and facilities you have. We only spent two nights but we were impressed at how clean and tidy the site was and also how well maintained. We would also like to say that we loved the areas you have kept wild for the promotion of wild animals and butterflies. Please keep up the good work.

We have just returned from a nights stay at your wonderful campsite and immediately rebooked for later in the year. The facilities are second to none and the site is maintained to a very high standard. Everyone was very helpful and the walk to the Church Inn was well worth it.
Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Just we thought your campsite was fabulous we stayed last week 14th/15th June.
The shower and toliet block were great never had such a great shower on a site.
All the little extra's were much appreciated when our bikes became covered with mud and it was great
to beable to wash off the dirt prior to putting them on the van. The cabin for campers was a great idea and use of washer and drier a great benefit. Would definately recommend your site to everybody. 10 out of 10 could not find any faults just excellent, the staff were very helpful and we enjoyed the fish and chips on the Friday night from the van.

Thank you Jackie Riggs and Jacquie Morris
