Date of Visit: June 2006 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Reviewer: Mask 1 review from this member

 A very pleasant and clean site, very quiet and peaceful due to the fact that it is for adults only. About 50% of pitches are hard standing although they do have grass along side if you wish to put the awning up on grass.
The only draw back was the toilets, set in a potacabin there were only 1 shower and toilet for males and the same for females. I did understand from a regular user of the site that the owner has put forward plans for a new toilet block.

The site is about 1.5miles from Ashbourne and the start of the Tissington cycle trail. It is also ideal for cycling at Carsington water which is a little bit further away. Both cycle routes are ideal for families because they are traffic free.

 This site is lovely. Very friendly staff(run by a family), who make you feel very welcome. Although people have picked at the fact there is only 1 toilet & 1 shower for male & female each. I didnt find this a problem. I have been too sites before where there are enough showers & toilets for the whole site, but the site isn't as well kept & the staff aren't as nice. We camped on the field & were very comfortable, its a really nice location. With various types of wildlife & horses to admire. I definitely recommend this site for all people.

 Nice friendly staff , and the site is well situated to Carsington resevoir, Ashbourne, Dove Dale etc. Some good pubs / restaurants nearby (the Knockerdown is well worth a visit nr Carsington village) . The site is quite basic, the toilet/shower block is a converted portacabin (very clean) but only have one shower in each which in busy times could prove quite a wait, and could do with some decent form of heating in them. The site advertises 365 day opening but there seems a lack of lighting on the caravanning field so the field seems very dark (so in the winter months a torch is advisable to take with you). But the site is nice and quiet and if this suits you as it does us, then its well worth a visit , as we will go back again

 Great site - nice camping field, but with 24 tents on it on sat night a bit cramped. Toilets really clean, despite business of site, but totally inadequte for the size of the site - one shower, one loo and one urinal for gents, no hooks/shelves etc. The playing field a great asset - the kids spent the whole weekend in it!

Reviewer: Richardsons 1 review from this member

 we visited the site for 3 nights and found that the site was friendly. The site is on a very busy road. The toilets on the site were not great the gents didn't have any toilet paper in them for 2 of the days we were there and the ladies were untidy, it would have been nice for them to be cleaned but I don't think they were attended to all weekend. (thankfully the site was not full).

We did pick our own spot and there is plenty of room on the site for both caravans and tents. The nearest pub is a mile away and you cant walk to it as the road is too busy and the are no pavements, the Black Horse pub is about a mile and a half away and the food is lovely but if you staying on this site I would recommend you bbq.

Reviewer: Traveleze 1 review from this member

 Site was very clean and catered for all types of travellers. Toilet block/s were clean also. The pitches are made up of gravel or grass. The drawback of the site is that it was right on the main road, with no path, having dogs this was a big draw back, although the site is very dog freindly. If your looking for peace and quiet then due to the traffic both air and car type, this probably wouldnt be suitable although it is ideally situated for the local attractions. The toilet block was also a let down due to there only being 1. (If the site is busy, expect a wait).

Overall a very well kept caravan/camp offering electricity and cleansiness.

 Nice clean, friendly staffed site, with a couple of drawbacks. First its very close to the main road with no gates to slow down the traffic going on or off site, saw a couple of close misses with children playing near the gate. Secondly the toilet facilites are limited to say the list with 1 WC and 1 urinal in the gents and 2 wc's in the ladies, each having 1 shower..... However they were kept clean and seemed to have plenty of hot water.....

Would go again, but would request a pitch further away from the road....

Nice clean site but the lack of facilities is an inconvinience especially when the site is packed to the gills. Only two toilets, two sinks and one shower in the Ladies. Gents had one toilet, one urinal, two sinks and one shower. Dish washing was one large pot sink in a cubicle only a foot wider than the sink it self and had no draining facilities.

No shop on site, nearest shop is in Hulland Ward 2 miles away. Bear in mind you cannot just nip to the shop when you are in a campervan with your awning attached. Also limited opening times.

Would go again at quiet times but not when busy due to lack of amenities.

Close to Carsington Water, High Peak and Tissington Trails.

Site was basic but good, one drawback is the toilet block, they could do with at least another block. Easy to find a beautiful part of the country, great pub for a meal was the Black Horse aprox 2 miles right out of site. Would give this site another vist.

Site smaller than I expected and nothing much for the kids to do. Facilities were very clean but only us & one other unit at the time. Lots of good hard standings as well as grass pitches, well spaced. Main road a bit close and noisy. Some pitches quite exposed if windy. Bus service into Ashbourne.
