Just back from 2 weeks at Woodland Caravan Park. 1st week very quiet, 2nd week (start of school holidays) a bit noisier!

This was probably the cheapest campsite we have stayed at, and the wardens are extremely friendly and welcoming. The site has a foreign look about it with pitches nestled in the trees - pitches are big with space in between.

The facilities are fairly basic and probably let the site down slightly. Push button showers and taps get a bit frustrating after two weeks, especially showers that cut out after 20 seconds! And a shelf/tray would be handy, rather than putting your stuff on the floor.

The lights are also on a timer and always went out before I finished a shower, leaving you in darkness!

Showers aside there is a small fenced-off dog walk (although on the 2nd week a group of campers were letting their dogs run 'free' in this and not clearing up their mess), and there is a walk from the site.

There is no specific play area, therefore kids end up playing in the woods amongst the pitches. The sheltered nature of the site also means that even when the sun is out there is limited direct sunlight.

The site is on a B road but the busy A515 runs past one end of the site (you can see a roadside snack van from the site), there was certainly road noise at night which would probably be worse the further up the site you are. A neighbours dog barking through the night didn't help! And the nearby race track and airport ensures that there is plenty of noise at weekends, though not overly intrusive.

The site is very close (approx 10 mins) to Alton Towers and 5 mins from Ashbourne, though a little far away from the Peak District delights (30 mins to Buxton).

In summary this would be a nice site to use as a stopover or couple of nights but perhaps avoid longer stays (and school holidays!) due to the limited facilities. This site is relaxed and there is none of the 'regimented' feel often associated with CC sites, though there is a transient feel about the residents.

What a great site set in the woods, the younger members of our party loved playing making dens and tree climbing, good enclosed dog walk where you can let your dog run loose

On arriving at the site friday evening we were met by a very warm welcome and didn't even need to ask our normal question can we stay later on sunday pm as leaving early always seems pointless on a weekend break, as we were informed we could stay till 6pm on our departure day.

Toilets modern & clean as were the showers, lots of water points round the site, will definitely use this site again.

We loved, loved, loved this site. Very easy to find, quiet when not too many children are on the site, but set in the most beautiful surroundings. It was just so nice to be 'in the woods'.

Toilet and shower block were clean and tidy and plenty of hot water. Washing up facilities and laundry facilities were good and there was also a microwave available to use which was a super thought.

The owners were really helpful and very pleasant and we will definitely be returning.

Dog walking was excellent and the local village very picturesque and quaint.

No play area for children but that wasn't a priority for us.

Do not hesitate to book this site

Very first outing in our newly acquired, very old motorhome to test it out, so only 40 minutes from home.

If this is the standard of caravan sites, we shall be well pleased.

Lovely wooded surroundings made pitch feel really private - lying on settee I could see nothing but surrounding trees!

Good, clean facilities, helpful wardens and 6pm leaving made it first class, together with reasonable fees, compared to many sites I have looked at since.

Only negative might be lack of shop for basics.

Good for dogs with fields for walks.

Clifton is nearest village - good 1 hour walk across fields, but lovely village with pub, local shop.

Ashbourne is great for shopping. Lots of nice charity shops and places to eat.

Will definitely visit again.

Well what can we say. 100% as usual. A warm welcome to new wardens Carole and Tony who are doing a grand job at keeping the site clean, fresh and spotless.

Read the reviews below and go and see for yourselves. The site is very rustic, set in the woods, very well lit at night with an immaculate toilet and shower block, laundry room re-cycling bins, enclosed dog walking area, EHU, plentiful water points, CDP

Just a five minute drive from Ashbourne town ( M&S simply food / Sainsbury's) and 15 minutes from Carsington water/ Tissington trail. And just perfect if you want to get away from it all. Our boys love it there with their bikes

What a cracking site! If you want peace and quiet and you have dogs, this site is great. Lots of nice walks around here, even secure dog run on site, what luxury is that.

The shower block is first class.

No extra charge for water,awning or dogs.

The Warden was really friendly and very helpful.

Plenty of Pubs and shops in the area, lots to see and do round about.

Could do with a little play area for the kids. But apart from that will certainly be going back
