This peaceful park is situated just opposite the impressive Elvaston Castle and its beautiful Grade II listed gardens. Located on the edge of the Peak District the park is within easy access of both Derby and Nottingham.
This is a superb base for exploring the spectacular scenery, and traditional towns and villages of the Peak District.
Donington Race Track, the National Watersports Centre, Alton Towers, Chatsworth House, and a host of other attractions and walks are all close by.
Bring your Tent to Beechwood Park and experience camping in a truly peaceful, stunningly attractive setting.Pitches are mainly level, and being based on a sand and gravel plateau, even if a fairly heavy shower descends, the ground is instantly drained.
Services for Campers are plentiful and include a Toilet/Shower Block, Pot Washing Room, Laundry Room and several fresh water points. Barbecues are welcomed so long as they kept off the grass. Dogs are accepted if kept on a lead at all times, secured in the tents overnight and mess cleaned up.
Beechwood Park has 12 fabulous Log Cabins. Each Lodge is fully equipped and enables Couples, Families or Groups to enjoy a luxury self contained holiday in a tranquil setting.Choose from the 2 Bedroom (4 berth) Virginia Lodge, or the the spacious 3 Bedroom (6 berth) Minnesota Lodge, or go really up market and pick the fantastic Kingfisher 3 bedroom (6 berth) Lodge which in addition to a main family Bathroom, also has an en-suite Bathroom to the master Bedroom.

Absolutely awful campsite, would never return here again! Upon arrival we were not greeted or told where to pitch our tent despite trying to get hold of the owners numerous times.. grass was uncared for and the ground terribly uneven. The bushes next to our tent seemed to have been used as a dumping ground as there was a variety of different crisp/chocolate bar packets that had been strewn there not to mention the fag butts dotted all around the place where we ended up having to pitch our tent. This was, however, probably due to the fact that there were no disposal facilities available. There was no noise curfew and so inconsiderate individuals were free to play extremely loud 'music' until the early hours of the morning which was distressing. The toilets were kept tolerably clean but there was definitely room for improvement.
Not once did we actually see the owners and when we called them at the end of our two night stay to arrange payment the owner asked if we could put the money through the letter box. When we explained that we would need change as we did not have the correct money the owner asked if we 'really needed the change?' basically asking us to give more than was due to save him the inconvenience of coming to meet us to take the payment (which was begrudgingly given by myself after the terrible experience of camping there). This I found unbelievably rude!
My advice would be to not camp here as the owners seem to see, (and treat) their customers as a necessary inconvenience.
