Just came back from what was a superb yet disastrous weekend! On arrival we were met by the most friendly of staff ever. Everything was clearly pointed out.

Now the fun starts! On arrival on pitch, I made the mistake of assuming the grass area across from the pitch was fine to go on; it looked like it had recently been cut.

Unfortunately there had been a lot of rain and the 4x4 promptly sank! Thanks to the other 2 guys for the tow out. Very much appreciated. First time ever stuck and I've been in some bad places!

I could imagine the owners watching in horror as some idiot went and ruined their lovely field. Then one of the plastic connectors to the hot water tank split and filled the van with 30 litres of water!

Anyway, thats got nothing to do with the site. I felt so bad about ruining the grass that I had to own up. The attitude astounded me. I thought they would probably go mad, yet I was greeted with 'don't worry, things happen'!

The site itself is very well kept and looks great. The shower blocks and toilets were kept very clean and tidy, as was the whole site. A dog walking area has been provided.

The site has some lovely views and is located close to Carsington Water, Ashbourne and Matlock Bath providing an excellent base.

Carsington is well within walking distance and is worth a visit. The whole of the local area has plenty of walks. There are a couple of pubs within a few minutes drive or a short walk.

All in all, this site is well worth staying at, is in a picturesque area, close to the Peak, very clean and run by friendly people. Will be going back again, in fact we booked again whilst there!

This is an excellent place to stay, all staff are very friendly and helpful. Plenty of room for the children to run around and to walk dogs. Next to Carsington Water, which is a lovely area to explore. A short drive to Gullivers Kingdom, another great day out for the family. Local pubs/ places to eat, all very friendly. Enjoyed so much going back again this year.

Hi, Just got back from this small but nice site, plenty of room between pitches. Clean site. Toilet block very smart and well kept, only 2 showers in block though and these cost a pound each. We paid 15 pounds for the night with leccy, and another pound on top of this I think is a bit off, especially when there might be 4 of you in the party. 15 mins walk to Carsington Resevoir then another hours walk to the visitors centre. Nice walk though. Didnt see a pub close by, site is very dark at night, no site lighting, nice sounds of wildlife at night, owls and cock pheasants etc. No on site shop, The people who run the site are very pleasant and were constantly working on the site so when we revisit something new will have popped up im sure. Mobile phone and telly signals are limited due to the hilly nature of the area.Overall good rural site. Would probably revisit.

A very well maintained site and owners friendly. However the toilet block although very clean is quite small and compact and got very busy at times although there was a caravan rally on the weekend we went. Also showers a bit disappointing for £1 a time. In parts the site is quite close to a road which you could here traffic at all times of day and night. Site dark at night toilet block on timer so only lights up when you approach the block and if you spend too long in block you are plunged into darkness! Plenty of space for kids to run around no play area though. Ideally situated with plenty to see and do nearby.

Wonderful site only a short walk from Carsington Waters, which is great for all ages.  We visited with children and they had plenty of room to ride their bikes etc. Very clean toilet block with complimentary toiletries which I have never seen anywhere else before, a lovely touch (£1 for a shower though).  A bit of a hike to the rubbish bins (front entrance) could do with more bins around the site.  Owners very friendly.  Would definitely use this site again.

We choose this campsite for our first camping trip with child aged 2.
Pleasantly surprised how welcoming it was and how attractive it looked. Pitch was large but some of the field was wet and muddy and unsuitable so we could spread out a bit.
Lots of families with young children and a little play house with toys in like tractors, bikes, balls to play with which my little one liked. Showers were £1 each and the cubicle was very small but water nice and hot and some free toiletries in the ladies which I thought was a nice touch.
 
Ideal location for exploring Carsington Water, we drove there but it was near enough to walk to. Ashbourne not far away with banks, supermarket etc.
Nice pubs all around, we didn't eat in any but they looked good.
Food at Carsington restaurant lovely and wholesome. Lots of little shops there too, like the health food one and the bookshop was well stocked.
Would definitely return to site again, friendly people, dog walking area and lots of interesting leaflets in toilet block.
