Just back from a 6 night stay at this wonderful site. On arrival we were made to feel most welcome and Peter, the owner, could not have been more helpful in assisting us choose a pitch. The site felt spacious and all the pitches were generous in size. Although it was not fully booked at the time of our stay we would imagine it would still feel spacious even when full. Plenty of room for the kids to play and run around.

The toilet/shower block was immaculate throughout our entire stay and the free to use toiletries were a nice touch.

It was possible to buy sausages/bacon/eggs from reception (we had some sausages which were very tasty!).

Great location and central to many attractions and places of interest. Lots of leaflets for days out/places to visit were available in the toilet block entrance along with local numbers for doctors/hospitals/vets etc.

We tried one of the local Pubs 'The Knockerdown' whose leaflet was on display but have to say that we were very disappointed by the lack of hospitality and the food was, in our opinion, rather poor.

Would definitely return to this site again and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone.

Have to agree with recent reviews. Lovely peaceful site. Paid 19 a night with EHU. Plus 1 x 2 for two showers the next day. Didn't queue for showers but there are only two showers in the mens and likewise in the ladies so the OH informs me. They are also slightly on the small side. They were spotlessly clean though, with lots of pegs to hang clothes, a small stool to sit on, and plenty of shelf space for shampoo, soap etc in the shower itself.

The rubbish bins and recycling bins are right near the entrance to the site - quite a walk if you are pitched near to the back of the site. Small bricks are available for those wanting to use disposable bbqs.

Newspapers are available to order from reception, and are hand delivered to your tent at approx 9am the next morning. Wish more sites did this that's for sure!

Ideally located for Carsington. I only live 20 minutes drive away, for me, it's a perfect site for a short weekend break. Cheap and clean, with friendly owners.

Lovely quiet site even on August Bank Holiday. The owners were very welcoming, helping us to find a sheltered pitch out of the wind. The site has a lovely open feel to it, with plenty of space left clear for children to play in etc. The owner makes a point of not over booking the site, and there was a 'site full' sign up, even though there was a lot of empty space which on many sites would have been crammed full.Shower and toilet block is small, but kept very clean and warm. My 11 year old son voted them 'amazing'.

Lots to do in the area. Carsington Water is a short walk away and has lots of activities at reasonable cost. An hours canoeing costs 10.00 including hire of a wet suit. Poole's Cavern at Buxton is interesting for an afternoon and is part of the country park set in lovely countryside.

The staff were very friendly and help full.We used this site as a base to get to alton towers and derby. Carsington water is a good place to go for a walk. The sites toilet block is clean and has focelites to do washing up in but paying one pound for a shower is steep as any wear else you would ether pay twenty pence or you would not have to pay anything.

Would like to say what a welcoming and friendly site. The staff were very helpful, very polite and always available if you had a problem.
The site was very clean and well maintained, with a newly built shower block which was kept very clean and with plenty of hot water, you have to pay 1 for a shower which did not bother us a family of 7,as 2 of us would go in together, but when you consider the sites fees this is not a problem.
Also there was sinks for you to do your dishes again with hot water. There is plenty of space for the children to play in. We had a lovely walk to the Carsington Water. The site was very peaceful and relaxing. Overall excellent site with excellent fees, will be using again very soon.

Reviewer: Alibongo61 2 reviews from this member

We have just returned from a weekend at this site with three other families, so we had 4 tents / trailer tent between us. Site owners were friendly and helpful. Pitches were ample and slightly sloping.
When we booked there were not enough electric hook up pitches available, so we opted to go without, which was no hardship. But it did mean we were situated quite a way from the toilet / shower block and close to the road that ran past it, which was occasionally a bit noisy.
The site was very busy with quite a few big parties which meant that the toilet / shower block was running to full capacity and members of our party had to queue several times, even for the loo! There were only 3 loos, 2 small handbasins and 2 showers in a very small area.
Also the pot washing area was rather small and at the side of the toilet block, after the first night we ended up heating water and washing pots etc by the tents.

We know the area quite well, only living about 40 mins away, so were able to take full advantage of the facilities at Carsington Water, which this campsite is ideally situated for. Overall a nice well kept site in a beautiful setting, but a bit lacking in ablution facilities.
