Our Review

We found New House Farm to have plenty of space, despite being the late May Bank Holiday with great weather.

Set in Derbyshire with views of the Peak District National Park, New House Farm provides a back to basics camping experience – no showers and hot water, just mains water taps and composting toilets 😉

There are a number of camping fields. Most of the camping is up the hill from the farmhouse, but the camping fields themselves are relatively flat with a gentle slope.

Campfires are allowed if kept off the ground.

They provide these fire pits that are located around the camping fields.

There’s plenty of space for the kids to roam on this campsite, with only the occasional car arriving or leaving.

One thing to watch out for though is the field beyond the upper camping field. This has a cliff.

There’s a safe path to the bottom of the cliff, and great for exploring with an adult.

If you are looking for a campsite with lots of facilities then New House Farm isn’t for you.

There is fresh (cold) running water at taps in each field, plus these composting toilets.

There’s aren’t as bad as many may think, and they didn’t smell.

The land at New House Farm is full of archaeological treasures, and the campsite has its own archaeological trail.

Artefacts found on the land are with the British Museum.
