Reviewer: Cottagegardener 1 review from this member

We booked into this site fairly last minute over the Bank Hol weekend, lots of other places were full but the site manager couldn't have been kinder on the phone saying that they would 'squeeze us in'. That said, I kind of expected the site to be heaving and not up to much. I was totally wrong. Upon arrival, both the site manager and her husband were friendly and welcoming, it didn't feel too busy and nothing was too much trouble for them. We asked about local facilities (ie - where the pubs were!) and they were open and honest about what was available & what they were like.

They put us in a perfect pitch overlooking a wide open space which we assumed (wrongly) would be full of campers by the end of the day. No, on this site, they keep the whole central area free of campers (they explained that the area was for children to play on. We didn't have ours with us this time, but had they been there, they would have loved it).

The showers were compact but hot and spotless - worth 1 and we didn't have to wait, indeed, considering the site was classed as full, the facilities were in no way overstretched. We couldn't fault the loos and there was even a basket of toiletries in the bathrooms (both the mens & womens) in case you'd forgotten anything.

There were 2 decent pubs within biking distance and the beautiful attractions of Dovedale and Tissington just a 15 minute drive away. All in all, a perfect few days escape and this site is definitely on our list to return to. Also a total bargain at 15 per night.

The site is pretty close to home in Chesterfield and was a good start to our camping career !

It was easy to find and the attendants met us straight away with friendly smiles.

The acreage is good at the site and units are not packed together-we chose our own spot close to a beech hedge slight slope but that was my fault for choosing it !

The camp was peaceful and everyone was mindful of everyone else.

The toilet/shower block is clean with free shower gel/soap etc.

Drinking water taps are sited around the site and hook ups are available.

Price for the pitch was 15 very- reasonable.

We had a lovely night at the site and visited Ashbourne on Saturday which is only a few miles away.

Carsington water is fabulous for walking and cycling round and full water sports facilities are available.

We would recommend this site to others and will definitely be visiting it again !

This was our first stop on a two week trip in a rented motor home so we were completely green and unsure what to expect. We needn't have worried as the owner greeted us on arrival and helped us with everything we needed including a top up of the water tank.

There is a small shop as part of reception selling a few essentials including the bag of sugar that we had forgotten.

The site itself is neat and tidy and the pitches reasonably level although our pitch was on grass which was a little soft given the recent rain.

There is just the one toilet and shower block and not a very big one at that so it was a bit awkward at busy times. Showers were a 1 a time as well which we did not see on any other sites. All that said they were clean and everything worked.

It is just a short walk to Carsington Water although the weather didn't permit a walk there.

Note that the TV, 3G and phone signal are all very weak at this site so be prepared to find alternative entertainment.

We had a fantastic stay the campsite is in a great location with a short walk to Carsington Waters.

There are plenty of villages around to visit. The wardens were very friendly and met us on arrival.

The pitches had plenty of space and the site was quiet at night. There is a good area for dog walking.

The toilet and wash facilities were very clean and had a basket of essentials if you forget yours.

My wife and I stayed here the last weekend they were open last year (2011), and again this weekend.

We find it to be a lovely well thought out site - gravel tracks and hardstandings for tourers and tracks into the camping areas.

We use our own facilities so cannot comment on the showers etc. There are numerous water points around the site and a large dog walk area.

For those that think it's expensive try parking at Carsington Water! 2. 50 for two hours! (I drove the kids down for a treat after tea, you have to pay at all times!)

We have found the wardens and owners to be polite and helpful at all times.

I would recommend for those looking for somewhere fairly quiet

We all were not impressed at all with this site. It as far too expensive at 23 per night ( with hook up).

The wifi didn't work unless you stood outside the shack (office), the bins were miles away, there were only 2 toilets and the showers had a crazy price of 1 to use!

It didn't seem in the Peak District at all, just on the edge. There was hardly no tv stations and no phone signal for vodaphone, orange, or o2.

There were no views at all, it did have a nice pond and some ducks but that was it. Oh sorry there was a cockerel (didn't see it just heard it) that did not shut up from around 5am each morning!

The warden I do have to say was very nice, and the toilet block was clean and had nice towels and homely touches, but that is all the positives I can think off. We definitely wont be going back there.
