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.

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.

We had a great/eventful time, on arrival the staff were very friendly, as if they had known you for years, took you down to where your pitch was, whilst there we ran out of gas so again they told us where to go which was only next door.
Then my son decided to get something stuck up his nose so again they advised us where the medical centre and hospitals, were, after a stay and operation in hospital, we returned to the site, they asked how he was. The Site has lots of room to play for the kids, they even made friends, we visited Gullivers Kingdom a great family park in matlock just a short drive away. We realy enjoyed it (the site not the hospital) that we have booked in for this aug bank holiday

Lets hope this time its not quite so eventful!

We spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. My tom tom satnav found the site with no trouble. The pitches are very generous. There is plenty of space of children to play, and there were several games of football while we were there. We looked at the Caravan Club site next door, but preferred this one because of the open aspect and space between pitches. I agree the shower is expensive, but the free hand cream, hairspray etc in the ladies section was a pleasant surprise, and everything was spotlessly clean. The owners are always about and very helpful; when I wanted to know about well dressings in the area, she phoned the local tourist board to find out for me. The walk to Carsington Water was lovely. We will definitely return.

Excellent weekend away. Used site as base to visit Alton Towers, (30 mins away). Shower block costs a 1, but once door open both my daughter and I could use. Water little intermitant in flow but shower warm (if little small). But clean and tidy.

Site wasn't that busy and pitches are good sized. DO NOT TRUST YOUR SAT NAV.

Owners stay on site and are very friendly.

Carsington lakes 15 min walk, but so busy we went back to the campsite and played on the open area.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The owners on the whole were pleasant. The site was immaculately kept, grass cut, toilet block cleaned at regular intervals. There is a good sized dog walking field.

The downside. No shop so would recommend you stock up on supplies. We were close to the road at the back so sometimes a little noisy.

The showers were 1 so a little expensive. Also, although children are welcome, there is not much for them to do. Yes there is a grassed area for the children to play on but we unfortunately had rain so it was a bit muddy. You are allowed to cycle around but you have to go really carefully because of the caravans around the site.

The surrounding area is beautiful and it is a lovely walk to carsington resevoir.

Had a really good time, this is a relaxing site.
