Details

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/Shower block has been likened to a 5* Hotel and our generous Super Pitches (25) and Camping Pitches (15) enjoy almost 360-degree panoramic views over the stunningly beautiful Peak District National Park. We have a family friendly and dog friendly pub within walking distance. Our ethos is nature-based, we encourage biodiversity in our fields and hedgerows and the majority of our energy is provided from sustainable sources or directly from the sun. 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 and free range chickens (eggs available). We have resident ‘Little Owls’ (which are not at all common) as well as other indigenous owls. Buzzards and Peregrine Falcons are a common sight and one of our campers has photographed a Red Kite here.
The toilet & shower block has underfloor heating & showers with 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. We have a kitchen area for washing up and a washing machine, dryer and small freezer for ice packs. We mow a huge area in an adjacent field for the children to play where they are extremely safe (we are far away from a busy road) and kick a ball around without caution as it is a good way from the pitches.
Upper Hurst Farm is Rural, yet Central. The market towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Leek are all around 10 miles from the site offering a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities. We are effectively 10 miles from a supermarket but the grocery shop in Hulme End and the two larger grocery shops in Hartington provide most needs (most of my shopping is done there). Upper Hurst Farm is a Walkers, Cyclists and Nature-Lovers Paradise. We are in the centre of two huge dales and it is just 1 mile to the River Dove (takes you to Hartington, DoveDale or Biggin) and 1 mile to the River Manifold and the start of the Manifold Cycle Trail and about 3 miles to the Tissington Cycle Trail. The Monsal trail near Bakewell and Chatsworth House is about 11 mile.
Upper Hurst Farm is about slowing the mind chatter by tuning into nature and becoming more attuned with your natural, peaceful self.
