Grazing, Rough Camping, Land, Field, Allotment, Events available to rent.
Eckington Park is a 2 field, 25 acre smallholding in Eckington, North Derbyshire. Our site is mainly open grassland, totally surrounded by ancient woodland and yet only 6 miles from Sheffield city centre and 3.5 miles from the M1 and we are looking to rent out some of it. We have an orchard, a large commercial poly tunnel, caravan office/mess room, toilet block, tool room and will soon be erecting another large poly tunnel and agricultural barn.
It is not good grazing land and the boundaries are not secure for animals. We are off grid so use solar power/generators, collect rainwater, have a land drain and bring in drinking water from off site. We are accessed from the public highway via a very poor 900 metre long forestry track/bridleway although we do plan to make improvements to the track in the near future.
We grow vegetables, salads and fruit and have rented out an acre to a local couple to use as an organic allotment. We have chickens, ducks, geese and soon hope to have some sheep. We are non profit-making and have an ethos of cooperation and caring ...for each other and the environment. We are new owners of the site and are looking for like-minded people to help us along the way. View our website http://eckingtonparkproject.com/
The site been left to go wild for 3 years so had lots of weeds including Ragwort when we took it on in September although we've since had it cut. There are issues such fencing and lack of a water supply/shelter but on the plus side a bridlepath does lead straight to our gate! Having said all that ....we would like to see the land used, produce some sort of income and brought back into good order so we are prepared to listen to and negotiate with people we feel would be an asset on the site.
