About Birchwood Farm

A warm welcome is offered to visitors old and new by the Smith family. Set in an area of outstanding beauty on the hills above the Derwent Valley on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire, this working farm has long been associated with holiday makers since the 1920’s. Situated in a central position for many of the main attractions in the area, we cater for tourers, tents and motor homes. We also have 2 well equipped holiday homes for hire on a weekly basis.

The main Toilet Block has Free showers and also includes a toilet for disabled guests.
