Ilex Farm Camping


Ilex Farm Camp site is situated in beautiful, peaceful and rolling Derbyshire countryside. The campsite is on 3 level terraces offering unobstructed views across the valley with tree lined slopes to offer privacy and shade between them.

An ideal camp site to stay at if you want to visit and explore the unlimited places of interest and beauty in the Peak District National Park. Plenty of opportunities to visit wonderful country houses as Chatsworth House, Hadden Hall and the historic Bolsover Castle. While the historic market towns of Chesterfield and Bakewell are just 6 and 10 miles away and the spar towns of Matlock Bath and Buxton close to explore, the Peak District has some thing of interest for everyone.

Our site is quiet and peaceful just right to put your feet up and enjoy a well deserved rest or a leisurely stroll with your dog. There are plenty of easy and interesting walks from the campsite and if you are more active some good bike rides.

We are members of the Camping and Caravan Club and the site is certificated by the club.
