Select Section

Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.
Whilst the majority of Certificated Sites do permit children, please be aware that this site has chosen to be Adults Only.

Poplars Farm benefits from panoramic views over the rolling Derbyshire Dales from every pitch. We are close to Carsington Water and Derbyshire has something for every visitor, whether interested in history, walking, shopping, pubs and dining or just relaxing. In addition to the 5 hard standing pitches for caravans and motor homes, there is hard standing with ehu available for folding campers and trailer tents or members may prefer a grass pitch with or without ehu. There is a dog walking area appreciated by our furry friends around the ten acre site. The fields have numerous meadow flowers in Spring and there are pigs, chickens and ducks on the farm, as well as a wealth of wildlife. Beautiful sunsets on many evenings - enjoy them with a glass of wine or a pot of tea!

Lazy days walking. Well as stated WOW !!! Great site fantastic hosts.

This review is for Poplars Farm

Lazy days walking. Well as stated WOW !!! Great site fantastic hosts. We only live 12 miles away and love the place. Lovely pitches on hard standing, toilets, showers, washing room, dryer etc all in very clean condition. Local area great for walks, and Carsington Res a few miles away. Close to Belper, and Ashbourne, so spoilt for which place to explore first. Great base to explore this part of Derbyshire. We will be going back over the winter months.

A gem of a site: We spent 7 nights here - together with our 3 dogs.

This review is for Poplars Farm

A gem of a site: We spent 7 nights here - together with our 3 dogs. Sara and Peter could not have been more helpful. The site is situated in a spot with beautiful views all around. The showers and toilets were spotless and free, which is something that some sites charge for or even limit the hours to be used. The dog walking area (all important to us) had been mowed to form a path all around the field. A nice touch, thank you Peter. We didn't use any of the local pubs, so can't comment on those. But on our next visit we definately will ! Added bonus for me - the 3 pigs that were there. All together a site that you would want to return to, it has everything - beautiful views, clean facilities and friendly owners

This is a quiet location even though it is situated just off a main road.

This review is for Poplars Farm

This is a quiet location even though it is situated just off a main road. The upside of this though is that it is easy to access and you are right on the edge of the countryside. The facilities were brilliant and it was a real bonus to be able to have a shower. It was a short walk into Hulland Ward and by going slightly further a safer road was available to walk on. We had 2 meals at the Black Horse which is both human and dog friendly with a good menu at reasonable prices. It also had the best ladies that I have seen in any pub! Additionally it's an added bonus that it's within walking distance. There is also a shop in the village and they very kindly put papers on the side for me. There are many attractions locally and although we didn't stop in Ashbourne it looked as though it was worth exploring and I noticed that there were car parks suitable for motor homes and campervans. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and worth exploring on foot or by bike. There are a few good bike trails around which we explored. All in all it was a good break and with hardstanding available it is somewhere that you can access in all weathers. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Simply stunning Immaculately kept site, very friendly and helpful owners. We received a warm welcome and a guided tour of the site when we arrived. The services and facilities are second to none, very well thought out and nicely placed. Incredible views from any angle. I liked it so much I booked my next visit before I'd even left!
