Bank House Farm is nestled in Hulme End, pretty hamlet a mere 10 miles from bustling Ashbourne and the spa town of Buxton. The Town of Leek is also only 8 miles away. The farm lies along the Manifold River and is surrounded by sweeping countryside. The farmhouse itself dates back to the Victorian era. You have a good chance of spotting the resident wildlife too, including owls, sparrow hawks, kingfishers and ducks (lots of ducks!), plus the river is well-stocked with fish. Across 10 acres, there are two separate fields. There are hardstanding and grass pitches which welcome campers and tourers, with the option of plenty of 16-Amp electric hook-ups. If you're in need of electric, you'll pitch up in the field closest to reception, which is also the closest to the facilities. Just over a sweet bridge is the meadow field for relaxed and freestyle camping, without electric. A maximum of two dogs are welcome per pitch. We are open from 1 March to 31 October (subject to change, please enquire) Our facilities include separate male and female free showers and toilets with electric shaver/hair dryer points, a pot washing area and access to fridges and freezers, also free of charge. We have all new 5* facilities coming for the start if 2020 season too which we are really excited about. You can purchase Calor Gas and Camping Gaz on site and fishing can be enjoyed by arrangement and during less busy periods. The Manifold Inn is literally directly outside our main site entrance, serving delicious food daily and also a campers breakfast, and there are shops, fish and chips and pubs in Hartington. We also have a Fish & Chip van visit us on site on Saturday evenings.A wider range of shops are just 20 minutes away in the car. A bus stops right outside the site and goes to Ashbourne, Buxton and Bakewell. Prices per night : Electric touring pitch (caravan, camper, motorhome) : £25 Non electric touring pitch: £22 Electric tent pitch (inc. two people and a car): £22 Non electric tent pitch: £19 Hiker or biker: £10 D of E students: £7 Extras per night: Each extra adult (over 16): £6 Child (3 - 15): £3 Dog: £2 Extra car: £5 Event shelter (over 3m x 3m): £8 Gazebo (up to 3m x 3m): £3 Fire basket hire is £10 (plus £10 refundable deposit) per duration of stay with limited availability although we haven't run out yet! We also have smaller fire baskets at £5. A minimum two night stay applies on weekends in summer months for electric pitches. A three night minimum stay applies over bank holidays. Things To Do On Site and Around the Buxton Area How could you be bored in the Peaks? Everywhere you turn there are magical landscapes, charming towns and villages and big attractions waiting to be explored. Grab your boots and take to the local footpaths and cycle routes. Be sure to stop off at local Thor's Cave, a majestic cavern that would make the perfect hideout for ancient creatures of myth and legend. Thirsty work? Luckily the Manifold Inn is literally opposite site and its sunny beer garden is a great place for a tipple or a tasty meal. Or, only 200 yards from your base is Hulme End Tea Junction, a pretty tea room at the start of the Manifold Valley Trail, where you'll want to have a cuppa and a slice of delicious cake. The Tissington Trail is a must-do for anyone on two wheels, or you can head to Carsington Water for a splashing good time and Alton Towers for a scream. Those with a head for heights will love the views from The Heights of Abraham. Other great options to explore: Chatsworth House Haddon Hall The Roaches Bakewell and its puddings Denby Pottery shop and Visitor Centre Buxton Spa and Opera House Eyam Hall

We had an absolutely brilliant time. A group of 6 of us. All of us had riverside pitch with stunning views of the baby lambs. Everything is in close proximity to your pitch. The wardens, Angela and Graeme, are just fantastic and so accommodating, helpful and kind. We will all be coming back most definitely and will highly recommend Bank House to all our other friends and family.. It was a pleasure.

We managed to arrange a post lockdown trip and the maiden voyage for our Glawning. We absolutely lucked out with this site, spectacular views, lots of well maintained and spacious pitches which worked brilliantly for our campervan/awning set up. I had great email help from the owners and on arrival, met the wardens who were so friendly and always on hand for a chat or to help. I can see this being a popular site when it fully reopens in May. We will definitely be back. Oh and the river running through the site just makes it for the children!

Really lovely 5 night trip. Riverside pitch was excellent, quite spacious. Very attractive location close to the start / finish of the manifold trail and nearby village of hartington. Will be even better when the manifold inn reopens.

Wow! First visit tot this site! Great communication from booking. Before we arrived we recieved a call from the site to ask what time we would be arriving which was nice. On arrival we were greeted and offered information about the site and local area. We also hired a firepit and wood which were very resonable price and added a lovely touch, especially in the cold weather. The pub has a lovely country feel and they are very welcoming. Thors cave is also close and is a must with amazing views! If you are a tent and non EHU I would definatly recommend the Meadow field. It's secluded and right by the river, where my partner proposed to me! Have already booked to go back, cannot wait! Book this, you will not regret it for a peaceful retreat!

I inquired about booking here and was asked in response "are we couples?" and "are we a single sex group?" which I thought was a bit blunt, nosy and quite frankly discrimination without having even meeting us. I then responded saying we are a mix of female and males of which my email was ignored, despite having had previous responses on emails. Quite frankly I find this rude and unhelpful and it has definitely put me off booking with them ever in future. A shame as looked like a nice place to stay but this has certainly put me right off even attempting to book in future. I will almost certainly not be telling any other friends to stay here in future.

Hi Henry, our reply to you was not blunt nosy or discriminating, we simply asked what your group was made up of which we are completely entitled to ask, our site is a family site and not right for some groups which we were trying to establish with you but very little information came back.
