Reviewer: Chophiemarax 1 review from this member

We stayed here for May bank holiday and it was our first trip out in our new caravan having upgraded from a trailer tent and we're really pleased we chose this site!

Booking over the phone in advance was easy as the owners were warm friendly and informative. Upon arrival we had a very warm welcome and we were shown where everything was from the spotlessly clean toilets and showers (best we've ever seen since we started with the trailer tent), waste disposal recycling points and even the stile to use out of the campsite and into the beautiful grounds of Snelston Hall (we were given a map to use by the owners whilst taking this walk!).

We had been allocated a pitch in advance next to our family who were also on their 1st caravan trip out but when we got there we found it was next to the entrance road but as we had small children in our party the warden very kindly changed both pitches over to the other side of the campsite. He was lovely and you felt like nothing was too much trouble.

The pitches are all hard standing (quite stony) and are surrounded by trees in a beautiful woodland setting, it was very tranquil and our 2 dogs loved it having the amazing fenced off dog walk that they were allowed to run free in, again something we have never seen.

The kids were not bothered about the lack of park ages 2, 4, 5 and 7. They were more than happy to take balls etc. in to the field behind us. Many children seemed to have great fun building dens in the forest.

I used the family room to shower the kids (free) - bags of room and lovely hot shower, could benefit from a seat but that's all! We also gratefully used the washing machine and tumble dryer (50p/30mins) after getting caught in the rain and soaked on the first day!

The site is 5min drive from Ashbournes gorgeous centre, Carsington water is about 15mins away as is Tissington hall and trail. There is Darley motorcycle race track over the road so if the noise bothers you check if they are meeting on your weekend away before booking. There is a link from the parks website. It didn't bother us but we were out for most of the day!

We will most definitely visit this clean friendly and peaceful site again!

What a lovely site. Booked quite late and were amazed to get in. Set in woods the site is very quiet and picturesque. Lady who owns the site gave us a map of a walk to nearby Clifton and we loved it.

Lovely pub in Clifton where we managed a swift half before walking back along the country roads. Absolutely lovely walk that I would recommend everyone to try.

Ablutions were clean and tidy. Showers were hot but a pain to have to keep pressing the button every 15 seconds. You all have your own key to the site so very secure. All in all a great weekend break. We will definitely be returning.

What a stunning site! Looks fantastic from the minute you drive in. First impression is that the site is very secure with locking gates on the access roads.

The site is set out on a circular route, and although there are 40 pitches, the layout in amongst the trees will leave you feeling as though you have the place to yourself. Well lit without being obtrusive.

The toilet block is very modern and two double glazed doors keep the block warm. The showers are clean and pleasant - although the push button is annoying - you get about 30 seconds before the button needs pushing again. There is a recycling area and a laundry which has proper industrial units at a brilliantly cheap price. Only a pound for an hour in the dryer! The dog walk was closed - a temporary measure - but my labs were more than happy with walking around the rest of the forest and nearby empty field.

Location is good, only minutes from Ashbourne. An M&S Food store is nearest big shop. Nice selection of shops and pubs in Ashbourne. Very handy for Alton Towers.

This site is fantastic.

The wardens were lovely people who were always friendly and helpful whenever we saw them.

There is no on site shop but the toilet and shower block were spotless.

The laundry facilities were excellent and very well priced too.

There is a small dog walk within the park (in its own wood), this is fine for a very short walk, but if you fancy a longer stroll then there are lots of footpaths in the surrounding farmers fields.

There isnt much there for kids, perhaps a small playground area would be a good idea, but there is always Alton Towers or Gullivers Kingdom well within reach by car.

Ashbourne is about a ten minute drive where there are lots of shops, supermarkets, pubs, resteraunts etc.

The surrounding area of Derbyshire has some beautiful scenery, and fantastic walks.

All in all I cant say enough about this site, it had everything that we, as a family would want from a site.

We loved this site - the woodland setting is really pretty. The pitches are large, with room on most for caravan, awning and car side-by-side. The pitches give lots of privacy too as each has it's own clearing.

Our pitch was pretty close to the main road, but over the weekend the traffic noise wasn't intrusive. However on BH Mon the races at Darley Moor race circuit across the road were! Don't imagine this is used very often though.

Loos etc - immaculate. These are by reception, quite a walk from the furthest pitches. This was not a problem until the wee hours - its a very spooky walk if you don't have an on-board loo for night time wees!

The relaxed atmosphere and friendliness of the managers gives the site something special. Whilst high standards of behaviour are expected in terms of noise, pets etc there was not list of do's and don'ts' handed on arrival or stuck around the site. I get really fed-up with being treated like a naughty school child on some sites - none of this here - great!

This is a great site for a base. The wardens are helpful and the facilities are very good.

Loo's & showers are very clean and there is a dishwashing area indoors as well as washing machine & tumble dryer at very cheap prices. We stayed for 4 nights @ 18 per night which we found reasonable, electric hook up and close by water, waste facilities very clean. Dog walk was very useful.

Peaceful site, plenty of room between caravans.

Easy site to access, previous review are accurate.
