Barn farm's facilities were excellent, and considering how many tents were visible on the fields, the showers and toilets never felt too busy.
Great location close to Bakewell, Matlock, Chatsworth & Haddon Hall, walking distance to two lovely pubs. Booked a meal at the Druids inn (advisable) , the menu is varied and the food was lovely.
This was our first time camping with our young children, wow what an experience!! That is all I can say.
Would definitely visit barn farm again
