We came across Upper Hurst Farm when carrying out an extensive Google search for somewhere to stay for our final camping trip of the year. We were two families, both with small children and wanted somewhere in The Peak District with beautiful scenery but also...More

About
Description
Upper Hurst Farm is a family-run site in a rural idyll that is surrounded by hills and is close to the picture-postcard village of Hartington. Our toilet and shower block has been likened to a 5-star hotel and More our generous super pitches (25) and camping pitches (15) enjoy almost 360-degree panoramic views over the stunningly beautiful Peak District National Park. There is a family and dog-friendly pub within walking distance (0.7 mile). Our ethos is nature-based and we encourage biodiversity in our fields and hedgerows, with the majority of our energy provided from sustainable sources or directly from the sun from solar panels. Animals are now finding us and we have a pair of alpacas, a resident (free range) peacock and peahen, four characterful and friendly mini Shetland ponies, four Jacob's sheep and free range chickens (eggs available). We have resident little owls (which are not at all common) as well as other indigenous owls and buzzards, and peregrine falcons are a common sight; one of our campers has photographed a red kite here. The toilet and shower block has underfloor heating and the showers offer unlimited hot water (without press buttons). We have a large wet room, which is suitable for people with access needs and we also make it available to families with small children and babies. There is a kitchen area for washing up and a washing machine, dryer and small freezer for ice packs. We mow a large area in an adjacent field for children to play in where they are extremely safe (totally away from traffic) and is away from the pitches. This allows the campers to have peace and quiet on their pitch and allows the children to let off steam and kick a ball as hard as they want! The mini Shetland ponies are a huge attraction for the children and they are at the far end of this field. This field is managed as a wild flower meadow and is cut as late as possible (so we can all enjoy) for hay. The grasses and wildflowers grow to a height of up to four feet. To see the smaller children running around the many paths that we mow, when the grass can be taller than them, is an absolute delight. Upper Hurst Farm is rural, but convenient for the market towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Leek, which are all around 10 miles from the site; they offer a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities. There is a newly opened village store in Hulme End (0.8 mile) and two larger grocery shops in Hartington (2 miles), which provide most needs (most of my shopping is done there). Our site is a paradise for walkers, cyclists and nature-lovers alike. We are in the centre of two stunning dales and we are just 1 mile from the River Dove (takes you to Hartington, Dove Dale and Biggin via Biggin Dale) and 1 mile to the River Manifold and the start of the Manifold Trail and we are about 3 miles from the Tissington Trail. The Monsal Trail is near Bakewell and Chatsworth, which is about 11 miles away. At Upper Hurst Farm you can slow the mind chatter by connecting with nature and becoming more attuned with your natural, peaceful self. We very much look forward to welcoming you to our tranquil site, whether this is your first visit or you’re one of our many regulars. Less

Due to a complaint about being smoked out we changed our policy to no fire pits. This will be reviewed for 2017.
