About Barn Farm Camping

Barn Farm is a traditional, Derbyshire gritstone stock-farm dating back to the 1500s. Based in Birchover, near Matlock, Barn Farm overlooks the beautiful Derwent Valley.

The farm itself is situated amongst 300 acres of land which attracts wildlife such as badgers and rare Black Fallow deer, and boasts over 60 species of birds including nuthatch and dippers.

Located 7 miles south of Bakewell and three miles west of Matlock, Barn Farm is set perfectly to access some of Derbyshire’s most popular tourist attractions.

The Limestone Way passes close to the farm, providing access to no less than four major footpaths. Bordering the farm is Stanton Moor with its ancient Arbor Low Stone Circle and Gib Hill, offering spectacular views across to the North, East and West. The locality offers well-maintained footpaths and walking routes throughout the area. A little further away is the river Lathkill, leading to a pleasant walk through the beautiful Lathkill Dale.

Robin Hood's Stride and Catcliffe Rocks are just two of the many different sites for climbing, and there are other superb sporting facilities near Birchover such as fishing, riding and watersports.

For lovers of architectural heritage, Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are close by, whereas Matlock Bath offers the perfect day out for all the family, with a variety of attractions nearby including Gulliver’s Kingdom and The Heights of Abraham.


In addition to our sheltered camping paddocks, there are five beautiful, well-maintained camping barns, providing accommodation for groups of between 6 to 15 people.

Sabine Hay Barn has bunk beds, and Hill Carr Barn has single beds. Each barn is heated, and includes table and chairs, fitted kitchen and cooking facilities. Each also has access to private bathroom and shower facilities near to the barns.

The site has its own play area, and a shop on site sells papers, bread, milk and numerous other essentials. Also close by are two local inns - The Druid Inn and The Red Lion, both of which serve food.


The main shower block is heated, and is open 24 hours a day. A sauna is also available for booking and there are both laundry and drying facilities. All taps supply drinking water and there is a facility for pot washing, with waste bins emptied daily.
