We stayed here on a showery weekend. This was to our advantage as people had seen the forecast and wimped out making the site quiet for us !

The site is easy to find and a great location to walk to Carsinton Water and its attractions. Site has a large pond which is very well stocked with very greedy fish and a useful dog walk, although the grass can be long so expect a soaking wet dog!

Owners were very friendly and helpful. The toilet block is small but OK when not busy. It's heated and always has hot water. Our gripe is that you had to pay a 1 per shower and the showers were 'cosy' and needed a good scrub. If staying as a group / family I'd advise going at once and making the pound work. Owners should consider revising this charge or perhaps put it in their details. This probably will prevent us going again as it added 2-4 a night to the pitch.

Would definitely come back here again - it was quiet (I think everyone else had seen the forecast - terrible weather!), beautiful area, very friendly staff despite being busy organising their own children's birthday party at the same time as running the site!

Toilet block was one of the best I've seen - not even a cobweb let alone a spider, always toilet roll and soap and towels, and complimentary toiletries to use if needed. No shop but not a problem as we were only there for a weekend. Plenty of wildlife - cows in the field behind us, various birds of prey and other birds to spot.

Slightly sloping pitch but plenty of room, sheltered by high hedges and trees. Carsington Water few minute's drive away. Would recommend Cromford Village for a quick look around, very pretty.

Booked in to this campsite by mistake instead of the caravan club site up the road and was not disappointed with a very friendly welcome to a large site consisting of two large fields, one with a pond. Yes there was some road noise but disappears at night.
Was charged 19/night for two adults with ehu on hardstanding,the downside being the extra 1 for a shower but this perhaps is reflected in the immaculate condition of the toilets.
The site is rather remote with no pub/shop within reasonable walking distance but is good for cyclists with a cycle route along the perimeter of the nearby Carsington water but is steep in parts.
We cycled to the award winning GBG listed Barley Mow in Kirk Ireton where beer is served straight out the barrel,however this pub doesn't do food or open till 7pm. In the eve. And don't expect any music either as this is a 'proper pub' with slate floor, old wooden furniture and a real coal fire.

We found this site whilst travelling around one weekend looking at all the different sites in the area. We only live 30 minutes away and were looking for somewhere to stay for the May Bank holiday. Everywhere was full but we left our name with this site and sure enough we got a call to say there was a cancellation.

I have never met such friendly people, always willing to help, asking if all is ok and smiling. They even walk you to your pitch.

This site is fab with a great area for children to play ball in the middle of all the pitches. There is a lovely pond that is fenced off and gorgeous friendly ducks that come and sit by you.

Pitches are gently sloping but there are blocks readily available for you to borrow if need be.

Toilets are immaculate with a personal touch of items like deoderant shower gel etc for you to use if you happen to have forgotten them.

There is a Sainsbury's, Co-op and Somerfield in Ashbourne just 5 miles away.

Carsington Water is a 10 min walk from the site with plenty to do.

We like this site so much that we have booked 3 nights for the Whitsun bank holiday.

First time away in our new to us caravan after years of tenting. Very warm welcome and lots of advice and help on offer. Guided tour of all facilities given (toilets, water points, waste points etc).

Choice of pitches as quiet. Gently sloping pitch picked and van soon levelled. Lovely views and great atmosphere.

Walked across the dam and to the visitor centre (lovely walk) with a buggy, first 400 yds on grass verge of road (easy enough) but otherwise on paths.

We were allowed to stay until 6pm on day of departure as quiet, was a nice touch.

Toilets and showers immaculate.

Bit of road noise but nothing too disturbing - not a busy road, especially late evening and night.

Overall I'd really recommend it. Very nice staff.

Reviewer: Harrysmum 1 review from this member

We visited this campsite last weekend and was very impressed with the set up. On arrival the owner changed our pitches to enable us to be next to our fellow campers. The toilet/shower block was very clean and never over busy. The only downside was that you had to pay 1 for entry to the shower cubicle, although once entry was gained, the shower was very clean and plentiful. There were a number of toiletries suplied by the owner to use which was a nice touch and handy if you had forgotten anything.

The hook up pitches were a good size and well laid out, not over cramped as with many other sites, and although the site was full there was still plenty of open space for games and the kids to run around.

It was a peaceful site within walking distance of Carsington Water, but little else in walking distance. It was 15 minutes drive to Ashbourne and set in beautiful surroundings.

I would definitely visit this site again.
