Stayed here for one night on 28 April and found the site to be excellent. Clean facilities and nice hot showers (take £1 coins!). Ideally located for exploring Carsington Water and the Derbyshire dales. There was plenty of room on the site and the owners put up the site full sign early evening, so I was glad we arrived early!

Lovely peaceful site close to Carsington water which has water sports, cycle hire, a very good children's play area, a few nice shops picnic area's etc.
The nearest pub is around two miles away, a nice walk over the Carsington water dam takes you to it, they serve good food & a good selection of drinks, they also have a small farm with animals that the children can look at.  
There are plenty of pitches on the site with electric hookups for caravans & tents set out around a small pond, or a large field for camping if you want to be a bit more back to nature.
There is a charge of £1 a time for the showers. The new washing up facility's & toilet/shower block is spotless with nice hot water, however a few shelves in the gents showers to put soap etc on would be good! A few lights around the site at night would also be a very good idea as it is pitch black, even with a torch my o/h was very apprehensive about walking to the toilet block after dark, as they are in total darkness until you walk through the door & the lights come on. 
On the whole we enjoyed our stay here & would probably visit again, as I have said it's very handy for the beautiful countryside surrounding Carsington water & Matlock, & the owners are very nice & friendly.

Visited this site at the weekend, lady was friendly when visited as only booked the night before. Nice level flat pitch, was very disappointed as single parent cost £12.00 per night and had to pay for showers. Don't mind paying if reflected in the price, but very basic, no shop also and as was camping cannot really carry the basics like bread and milk either. If visiting this site please be wary as more suitable for caravans than tents and more geared up to caravans and rallies! Very dark at night as not much lighting except from the toilet block!

Thought the site was beautiful, shower block was clean but it is a bit of a trek in the night! Owners were very nice and friendly. Ground was quite hard so make sure you have tough pegs. All in all it is recommended, kids will love it, plenty of room to run about.

Had a fabulous weekend here - plenty of drinking water sites, quiet, yet children made to feel very welcome. Very safe for them too. Plenty of room. Showers & toilets kept very clean and well stocked.

Would definitely visit again. Reasonably priced. Bricks available for BBQs too. Perhaps more rubbish bins rather than just sited in a wheelie bin at the entrance to the site.

Reviewer: Stebbo87 1 review from this member

For the right balance between good facilities but an easy-going atmosphere, I recommend this site. After continuous rain the previous week I was worried the site would be flooded, but a dry bank holiday weekend (for a change) was enough to make the ground fine for our friends' tent, and, after a little persuasion, we got our campervan into the top field too.

The couple who run the place are very friendly. There are several marked out pitches in the bottom field (mostly with 16A hookup) but, if you prefer something a bit less regimented, the top field is 'free seating' and lots of room for games of football and rounders. It's a green and pleasant site - no open camp fires allowed, but barbeques OK.

The new shower block is great (must have been a bit dire before this was built) with 2 washing up stations also. Hot water good 95% of the time. Location is excellent - take your bikes for good cycling round Carsington Water and High Peak Trail etc.
