Farm on the Hill eco-campsite is set within 24 acres of woodland and meadow on the edge of the rural hamlet of Prestwood on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border. With a mix of pitches ranging from private 2 person spaces set within their own woodland clearing to larger spaces perfect for family groups and friends, you'll find Farm on the Hill to be the perfect place from which to explore the surrounding countryside and visitor attractions. It is also the perfect place to get your cooking pot over the fire and relax with a book (a good supply can be found on our book-swap shelves), or perhaps set up one of our easels and get creative. Close to Alton Towers too although you’d never know :)

Meadow and woodland camping pitches
These pitches have a really special feel to them. Surrounded by young trees, wildflowers and grasses, there is such a feeling of life. Small, mown clearings are scattered around the woodland and meadow, complete with picnic tables and stone fire circles, creating some truly beautiful and private spaces . These pitches vary in size from one tent pitches to group pitches, there’s somewhere to suit everyone, just tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll give you the best pitch options for you or your group.
The Secret Garden
The Secret Garden is a private camping pitch surrounded by tall hedges and trees (see photos above). It is located close to the campsite entrance with the woodland behind. There is a large stone fire pit perfect for sitting around with friends and family and enjoying a relaxing night under the stars. After having watched the sunset of course.... this pitch has one of the best sunset views onsite :) The secret garden can accommodate between 2 and 5 tents of average size. Another pitch just through the hedge can easily be included with this space, this additional pitch can accommodate up to 2 tents, with incredible views overlooking the Churnet Valley this is the sunset view :) This pitch is great for small groups of family and friends. It is best for small to medium sized tents due to the size of level pitching areas. When multiple tents are pitched it does not leave much space for activities such as ball games. Enquire about our full range of group pitches to find the one that best suits your needs :) The location of this pitch means it is a good all weather/ year round camping pitch; cars can park just outside the pitch on a gravel area.
At Farm on the Hill we like to be able to welcome everyone, we think it is important to not only be able to share this beautiful space with families and couples but also with young groups. So we’ve created a new space just for families, a family field with six well spread out pitches and loads of space that we let out to families only. It’s on the far side of site, away from the main camping area, so nice and quiet and comes with stunning views over the Weaver Hills. The sunsets from here are so beautiful, my new favourite part of the campsite :)
Each pitch can accommodate multiple tents so this area works well for both individual families as well as groups of families.
If this area sounds perfect for you please mention the family field on booking.
Although mainly a tent site, we do have some pitches that are accessible to camper vans (of a VW size). These pitches also come with stone firepits. Due to the wild nature of the site, all but one of these pitches are weather dependant, so please enquire in advance. Prices for campervan stay is the same as for a tent; £10/person/night for anyone three and over. Please note that none of our pitches have electric hook-up.
There is nothing like a campfire, a campfire captivates, warms, flickers, it’s like the company of a good humoured friend, the creator of good memories. Whether for you a campfire conjures images of campfire cooking and bowls of steaming stew or nights spent huddled round a fire star-gazing with friends, a campfire always makes us smile :) A campfire makes camping special and that’s way at Farm on the Hill every pitch has its own firepit, and we sell wood and firelighters on site. For those of you who are new to fire building, we are always happy to lend a hand :)
All camping pitches have shared use of facilities, which include:
Easels and drawing materials available if requested in advance: £5/easel with materials
Firewood available at £5/bag
Our campsite is set on the edge of a small village. We expect that all campers will respect the environment and people around them, not litter either the site or surrounding area, and not making excessive noise during their stay. In order to prevent this from occurring, we do not allow generators or music systems on site. As this is a site that welcomes young families, we ask that campers are quiet from 11pm onwards. Quite often the nights can be so still here that laughter around a campfire can carry right around the field, so we ask that campers only laugh in whispers after 11pm... Thankyou.
Are dogs allowed?
We now have a no dogs on-site policy for the campsite. This allows us to ensure the safety of campers and provide a relaxing environment for all. This also ensures that the site is kept as clean as possible. We hope you understand our reasoning on this, and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Arrival and departure times
Arrival is anytime from 2pm onwards and departure is by 12pm on the day that you leave. However we do try to be as flexible with this as possible, so if you would like to either arrive earlier or leave later, please let us know and we will do our best to work this for you. If there is no one booked into your pitch the day that you leave, you are very welcome to stay and enjoy the space as long as possible.
£10/person/night for anyone three and over
