If carlsberg did campsites……..We are seasoned campers but just upgraded to a caravan…. weather is appalling right now but the site is absolutely faultless!!!!
Very clean and tidy all over, secure dog area, amazing shower blocks, electric, water, tv, even wifi…. and it works!!!!
Caravan, awning, 2 dogs, £22 per night!!! Amazing value.
Great walks from the doorstep
Will definitely be back
David Gaston (February 2017)
We stayed at Beech Croft in February 2017 for three nights complete with snow and blizzards. Would love to return to see the place in spring, summer and autumn. Site is in a beautiful location. Pitches are very generously spaced out with electricity, water and TV all available on the pitch. Great facilities including large dog field and walk, kids play areas etc. Toilets, showers are immaculate (says my wife who has very high standards; I used the facilities in the caravan). Very friendly and helpful staff. Great attention to detail like. Many thanks for a great stay. We will return!
Sandra Simpson (October 2016)
We have just arrived back from our couple of days at your campsite. Just to say a big thank you!
Your site is wonderful! A marvellous location, extremely clean, tidy, dog friendly ( loved the ball throwing field!), well laid out, people friendly. Absolutely super in every way. Thank you
Mr & Mrs Taylor (October 2016)
Thank you for a lovely stay at your great site which is a credit to you the owners, having tried many times throught the year we finally managed it this last weekend, we stayed on pitch 12 super sized plenty of room wifi was great but my favorite was your superb facilities keep up the good work hope to see you again soon
John Nowforth (September 2016)
Just a quick email to say what a fantastic weekend we had at your campsite; the facilities were top class, the scenery was beautiful and we had a really nice walk on the Saturday (one of the ones out of your book).
I didn’t have time to pop in yesterday before we left as we had a table booked at the Church Inn, so I thought I’d just write to say thanks and also to ask if you could let the goats know that Albert and Connie said “bye”.
We loved it so much we’re debating whether to come back this weekend or not; we’ll probably make a last minute decision based on the weather, so we might be seeing you again soon but in either case, thanks again for such a great site!
Suzanne Wood (July 2016)
We have just returned from a long weekend staying with you and wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had! The campsite is spotless, the pitches are spacious and the atmosphere was superb! I have already started recommending your site to family and friends and hope to return soon.
Mandy Manning (July 2016)
Hi to you both, Just wanted to say a massive “thank you” for a great week-end at one of the best sites we have ever stayed on… The facilities are superb; the cleanliness of the site is staggering, and the fact that you do not over book is extremely welcome. Despite the awful weather, ourselves and the two other families we camped with, all had a wonderful escape and really look forward to returning.
Our compliments to your cleaning staff too, who are not only diligent and hard working, but extremely friendly and helpful…they went above and beyond to ensure that we knew when the showers were cleaned and open once again.
With thanks and best wishes
The Rowlands (June 2016)
Just returned from our 3 night stay at your wonderful site. A huge thank you for managing to offer an immaculate site with the freedom of choice of great pitches. Our children will miss the goats, the bike rides, the lazy mornings, the playing field and simply ‘chilling out!’ We all loved the treasure trail – and the pub was a very welcome rest – in-fact….so welcome, we didn’t finish the trail but stayed a little longer and then returned a little merrier to the site!
10/10 for your hospitality, the location and luckily for us – the weather! We will return ! Thanks again
Andrea & Darryl Coates (March 2016)
We had a great weekend at your campsite, We will be back later in the year.Your toilet and shower block is the best we have ever been in, in 23 years of camping! See you soon.
Ruth, Paul and Megan the dog (March 2016)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to John for the scary but warm welcome you gave to my husband and myself on Friday when we arrived in all that snow. You were so kind in getting us set up on the site. We have had an amazing weekend. We completed a couple of the walks from the local walk leaflets available from the reception and both had a local pub on route also very welcoming.
Your site is exceptional. We may be new to caravanning and learning every time we take it out but your facilities were very clean and lovely and warm. The pitches are a great size and no one is squashed up to the next. We look forward to returning. Thank you again
Jan Steve and Molly the dog (October 2015)
Hi there, we have just arrived back from your campsite and wanted to tell you what a lovely site it is. We have had a lovely time there. Clean toilets and showers and really great size pitches and just so quiet at night-time. We rather liked the friendly goats as well. We will return as we do holiday a lot in the peak district. We will need to keep this site a secret so we can book again. The motorhome is now put to bed for winter but will wake up again in March ready for the new season. Thanks again from pitch 29.
Sue McManus (May 2015)
We have just spent the weekend at Beech Croft Farm. This was our first visit, but certainly won’t be our last. Beautiful site, lovely clean, modern showers and toilets. Hubby says the chemical disposal point was the best he has ever used. Fantastic views, really good value for money. We love it.
Pam & James Jones; Janis & Iain Ramsbottom (May 2015)
Just like to say what a wonderful site you have, the facilities are fantastic and the site so well maintained it is also in a beautiful area, we shall return
Claire, Gary and Ellie Jackson (March 2015)
Hi we stayed on your campsite on Friday and Saturday just gone, can we just say this is the best campsite we have ever stayed on, you have it perfect, the facilities are excellent, the site is immaculate and we will definitely be revisiting. We are on the reserve list for Easter but if no success we will be visiting again in the very near future.
Mark Pearson (March 2015)
Just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for our stay last Saturday, the 14th march 2015.
I was one of the three brave motorcyclists who stopped overnight in your tent area in the minus 5 degrees temperatures.
I said it when I popped into the shop but wanted to send an email testimonial. Your site is one of the cleanest sites I have stayed on. It is the small things, like the Campers Cabin where there is a microwave and coffee machine, the superb toilet / shower facilities and the warm friendly welcome.
You even kept the shop open a few extra minutes for us as we had forgotten some essentials like coffee!!
Thank you for a wonderful stay – we will be back during the summer when it is a bit warmer!
Colin Webb and Sue Piggott (July 2014)
Dear John and Julie, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you along with your daughter for providing such a wonderful location for our recent camping break. Both my partner Sue and I would made to feel very welcome from the outset. The views are to die for and the facilities second to none. Together with your support staff you have provided a wonderful haven for weary travellers in need of a break. We were very fortunate to have such wonderful weather as well and I only hope that similar weather, albeit slightly cooler will be available for your daughters wedding……we hope to return next year.
Mr and Mrs Pope (May 2014)
We would just like to thank you on an outstanding camp site and facilities you have. We only spent two nights but we were impressed at how clean and tidy the site was and also how well maintained. We would also like to say that we loved the areas you have kept wild for the promotion of wild animals and butterflies. Please keep up the good work.
Annie and David (May 2014)
Just to say…how much we enjoyed our stay on your lovely site. Even though the site filled to capacity over the Bank Holiday weekend, it was still peaceful. Thank you for accommodating my son with his camper van on our pitch. I must say that nothing was too much trouble and your facilities are first class, including the enclosed dog walk. We will return for another stay.
Richard (Nov 2013)
Hi Julie and John, I spent the weekend at Beech Croft with my motorhome and just wanted to feedback on the experience…
I think your site is a real gem, and one of the best I have ever stayed on. Fantastic amenities, quality pitches, superb countryside, friendly staff – what more could you ever want?
Many thanks, and we will be back!
Glenys and Dave Padfield (Nov 2013)
Arrived home safe at 11.30 No snow in Shropshire.This was our second visit to the campsite. this campsite is so good. Friendly welcome at reception and advised to pitch where you like. We chose a pitch that looked down into the valley, which highlighted the fantastic peak district countryside. A short walk down to the shower and toilet block which is maintained to the highest standard, with under floor heating a real bonus. Campers cabin with hot drinks vending machine. Only a short distant to Buxton, Bakewell and the Monsall trail, the site is well placed for exploring the local area. The site is the best site we have used, and we shall certainly be visiting again.
Thank you for a great weekend – will be back soon, Glenys and Dave Padfield xx
Ruth Henry + Family (June 2013)
To all involved in managing your caravan and camping site.
From Monday to Sunday last week the Henry family with 2 tents, a campervan and a caravan had a wonderful time on your site despite rainy weather at times. Your facilities were excellent and the layout of the site and the environmental attention to detail was excellent. The site is in such a wonderful position with walks to the Monsal Trail etc. and a bus service nearby.
Thank you for helping our family to have such a happy stay.
Richard (June 2013)
I just wanted to wite and and thank you once again for a loveley stay last night!
Your campsite is so peaceful and beautiful and clean – and my very very favourite.
I hope I see you again soon
Andy (April 2013)
We stayed with you for 5 nights over Easter and we all just want to say a really big thank you!
Although well used to camping, this was our first caravan outing and from the minute we arrived we all felt so at home. Facilities were unbelievable and the working farm aspect certainly proved a massive hit with my daughter Ella.
We look forward to seeing you again at some point later in the year.
I spent last Wednesday and Thursday nights at your camp site (black Jeep Wrangler + bicycle) and just wanted to say how much I appreciated your facilities. As a Sahara person I don’t have a lot of experience of UK camp sites but clearly a great deal of time, thought, detailed planning and capital went into producing the first class set up you have provided for visitors. Thank you. I hope today’s highly-coloured TV weather reports have not affected you too badly.
Thanks again. The little goats, incidentally, were a delight. And, for fostering a feelgood factor, a stroke of genius!
Marg & Mike (20/05/2012)
A fantastic week in a fabulous part of the country, shared with such wonderful people. I just wanted to send a very large thank you to all for allowing us to share your home. To see the new additions to the farm is just wonderful. Please pass my thanks on to ALL for making our stay, even despite the weather, so enjoyable. The site as always is immaculate and the work done within the last twelve months is a credit to you all.

Mauren & David Mckenzie (12/04/2012)
This is just to say a big thank you for a lovely site and facilities, we enjoyed our stay at Beech Croft last weekend despite the snow, and will be back again one day and will recommend you to people we know , the area is lovely with loads to do.
The Ring Family (09/04/2012)
Just a quick Email to Thank – You for a FANTASTIC stay last week in the snow!!!! I don’t think we will ever get worse weather then we had, It will make it all the more enjoyable when the sun shines. Our first time away in our caravan, and it hasn’t put us off one bit. The site is 1st Class,very clean, Very Friendly and the children loved holding the new born lambs. We can’t wait to come back again
Neil Gaskin (09/04/2012)
I would like to say how much my son and I were impressed with your site. The location is great as it is easy to find and you wouldn’t know you were near the A6. It is great being close to the trails and walks too so you do not have to drive out (not that we could on the Wed anyway). The shower block is fantastic and this always makes a difference to the decision to return or not. We were caught in that terrible weather for a day but stuck it out and had a lovely walk on the Thursday. I hope you all managed to clear the roads and had a good Easter weekend. We walked over to the Church Inn at Chelmorton and would thoroughly recommend this too.

The Collins and Thompson family (March 2012)
From the time we had made our phone booking with you,we knew we had chosen well. So on arrival 1st March 2012 we were not disappointed, the welcome and information that was given to us was excellent. We wish you well for the future and we are sure your site will only improve further as the planting grows and flourish’s. We look forward to our next visit to Beech Croft.
Alan Scales (05/04/2012)
Just to let you know, we had a really good weekend on our first trip out with the new caravan. Everything went really well. Your site and the pitch could not have been better – particularly liked all the snowdrops. The views were good and we enjoyed a pleasant walk in the sun across the hills towards Chelmorton on Saturday, and we had a pub lunch at The Church Inn.
Nigel Atkinson (17/02/2012)
Can we say what a wonderful stay we had in our new caravan this week. We are very impressed by all your hard work in designing the park, but also very impressed by your customer service.
We shall without a doubt be visiting you on a regular basis. We look forward to watching the park grow and develop over the forthcoming years. We wish you every success.
Stuart Whitwam (January 2012)
We came to your campsite on or around the Wednesday before the new year for four days. I have to say that your site is now the BEST WE HAVE STAYED IN ANYWHERE IN EUROPE! We will recommend you to everyone we know. We also had a super meal at Church Inn and they brought us home!! What a super service you and they are running!!
Edwin Donald Renahan 07/01/2012)
Just to say that despite everything that the weather could throw at us we enjoyed our stay with you. Our walk over to the Church Inn in the dark last night was challenging but worth it. Beer and Food was excellent. Well recommended! You have created a superb site there we will definitely be back.

Carol and Charles Mills (06/11/11)
Just arrived home after a weekend on your caravan park. We had a wonderful time and the facilities are 1st class, especially the disabled toilet/shower, very clean and well kept, would definitely recommend to family and friends. We shall be visiting again over the next few month (weather committing)
Dean, Alicia, Taylor and one very tired Labrador (05/11/11)
I would just like to say how much me and my family enjoyed our stay at your fabulous site, it was our first ever camping trip and I’m pleased to say everything went perfectly thanks to your faultless facilities. Your showers and toilets were spotless and the washing up room was the the same. We enjoyed our walk to The Church Inn i don’t think i have ever enjoyed a
pint so much, after that walk. We look forward to staying with you again, hopefully in Easter when we have got a bigger tent.
Julian and family (03/11/11)
Just wanted to let you know we thought the site was great, very clean facilities, beautiful location and we really enjoyed ourselves!
Lucy Shaun and Tom Virtue (25/08/2011)
Just wanted to write to say thank you for the fabulous time we had staying on your site from Sunday until today. We had a great stay, the site is perfect and ina quite beautiful setting (but you know that!). Your Facilities are AMAZING and so clean – “American Airport Standard” according to our son Tom (that’s very good by the way!!!!). We are very impressed by the friendliness of the Beechcroft Team and by the way even though the site was full, it didn’t seem as such and was very quiet (apart from the toddler that wanted to play the saucepans at 6.00 this morning – but guess there is not a lot you can do about that really!) We cycled the Monsal Trail and also the Tissington to Ashbourne from the site and had a super time. Thank you very much – we look forward to coming back to you soon. We hadn’t appreciated what a beautiful area the Peak District is.

Paul and Vicki Featherstone (23/08/2012)
Just a little note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful campsite! Thank you for being very helpful when we requested another two nights- your prompt response was very much appreciated! We will certainly be coming back soon to see you again.
Helen Hattersley (20/08/2012)
Just like to say we really enjoyed our stay at your campsite, it is a lovely location and very well maintained, I will be recommending you to everyone I know.
Colin Johnson (July 2012)
Stayed with you at the weekend for the first time, and would just like to say what a great site you have, many thanks, and keep up the good work
Nick Smith (11/06/2011)
I am recommending you to all our contacts – really enjoyed staying at your site – even better now – best ablutions block I’ve ever used!
Alan and Amanda Curry (May 2011)
Just a note to say thanks for a lovely weekend – our first trip to the peak district but it wont be the last. Your site is a credit to you as are your staff. Easy to book, friendly reception, informative person in the shop knew all the local attractions, spotless shower block and great walking on the doorstep.

Mark Barrett (14/06/2011)
Dear John & Julie, I am writing on behalf of the group of 20 campers from CTC.Walsall (Cycling Club) who stayed at your campsite last week (3-5th June) to say ‘thank you’ for making us so welcome. I noted that, even where there was doubt as to whether a certain person had/had not paid for his pitch it was dealt with without fuss and very amicably. The general good order, good facilities and lovely situation of your site greatly contributed to a weekend that everyone says that they enjoyed.
Myself and my son really enjoyed cycling around the area, and I’ve kept you on our list of sites for future use. All of you do brilliantly-working with an inner-city housing association I know what hard work it is to keep an area really tidy! Your site is the only campsite in England or Wales where I have actually enjoyed taking a shower or going to the loo-on many it’s an ordeal to be got over as quickly as possible!
Barney Hatcher (02/09/2011)
Hi, We’ve just left today after a few days with you at Beech Croft Farm and want to tell you what a wonderful time we had. The site was great, well run, quiet and perfectly located for all the main things to see & do. The facilities were immaculately clean and well looked after. We’ll definitely be back for a longer stay. You should be very proud. Barney, Sam, Sophie Hatcher
Julie, John, Curtis and Georgia Ryans
To Julie and John, just to say a big thank you for a lovely stay at the farm site, your new shower block etc and other facilities are a credit to you both. Thank you again.
Caravan site finder: Jill Croft (06/07/2011)
Just back from 3 nights at Beech Croft Farm with our twin axle lunar. Nice site, very easy access and plenty of manoeuvring space to pitches – all hard standing, with water & TV socket to every pitch. Best views from top field – lovely panorama of rolling hills.
Friendly owners, brand new toilet block – best showers ever. Weather was very kind to us, but great walks all around, wild flowers like you’ve never seen. Best walk was a stunner, from the site down to the river Wye, along Cheedale and back to the van.
Loads of trails for cycling and walking though they get very busy (and worse at weekends, I gather) Better to go either early or late in the day, or use the footpaths instead, which are much quieter due to everyone taking the easier trail routes! We would highly recommend both the site and the area.
