Returned from a lovely two nights at this charming site. OK the weather could have been kinder - I struggled getting the campervan off the grass on the final day - but very enjoyable time.

A warm welcome from the staff and quickly allocated space. I went for the first field, no hook up and on the grass instead of hard standing.

Site is compact, a couple of fields, a nice open space in middle full of ducks, a duck pond, farm section and a dog run. Nice toilet block - 1 for the showers. All the normal facilities.

A short walk away is Carsington Water. You can hop onto the damm wall and walk to the visitor centre. Very nice scenery.

Got the feeling that many people revisit the site. Easy to see why.

The campsite itself is situated in a great location near to Carsington Water (within a 5-10 minuet walk) with a pub and restaurant in close proximity.

The facilities are adequate, you have to pay to use them which is fine if you are staying at a budget campsite however Carsington Fields markets itself and charges as a premium site. My big issue is if you have to pay to use facilities they should be kept in good working order and clean. They were not.

My final point is about the poor customer service I received on my stay. Carsington Fields really let themselves down in this area. I felt like the whole time I was there their only motivation was how much money they could squeeze out of my pocket. Without going into detail, I needed their assistance with a problem and they were particularly unhelpful and unsympathetic to the whole situation.

In summary, great location, reasonable facilities and poor customer service.

Have just returned from this amazing site, we loved it so much that after 30 years of touring we have asked for a seasonal spot here next year.

Where do I start? Well obviously the warmest, friendliest welcome ever, and this is how it was all the time, and the owners even came out of the office to wave us off!

The grass had been cut and was wet which meant you took it into the ablutions, but next time you went it had been cleared away!

We used our own shower so can't comment on the showers but the ablutions were spotless and the hand washing water was hot. There were even toiletries and a clean hand towel every day.

We have no children but I would loved to have come here as a child; it's safe to cycle, lots of space to run around, the duck pond, the goats in the orchard.

We had plenty of space and the pitches have little hedges to mark your territory, but not offensive that you can't chat to your neighbour.

The little stores in the office was great for daily essentials and we shopped in nearby Wirksworth. We had days out at Dovedale, Bakewell, Matlock (Arkwright Mills) and Matlock Bath plus cycled around the reservoir.

I cannot fault this site.

Stayed on this site for 3 nights, well kept site with lovely owners.

Toilets clean but showers are quite small, toiletries for you if you forget to take them in with you

There is a dog walking site which you can let your dog of if you want to.

Lovely friendly ducks that like to be fed

All in all very nice and not over crowdered we would return.

The site is so obviously cared for. The owners and staff are genuinely lovely folk and made us feel so welcome. The little shop on site is really well stocked and even has a welly box and an outside toy box for customers to borrow. My 8 yr old niece was stung by a wasp and the staff were so kind and helpful, supplying us with their own potions plus lollies!

Carsington Water is a short walk away and a fab place to spend a day. We hired bikes and cycled the 8 miles around the reservoir. The playground proved very popular too. Close by is the Knockerdown pub which has good value meals (huge portions) plus a playground and resident ostrich!

I suppose the site showers could do with updating although for 3 nights, we managed fine. The family shower room at 2 for 30mins was definitely worth it.

I think the site may also benefit from a few swings and slides too.

Reviewer: Val4syth 1 review from this member

Entirely agree with the rave reviews already posted. Would have given it a resounding 10 except for the showers. The site price is deservedly at the top end but I would expect that to include showers, which cost 1. The cubicles are very cramped and the shower head is fixed so that you have to wash your hair whether you wanted to or not (definitely recommend taking a shower cap. ) The temperature cannot be regulated and the flow is by push button, which of course goes off at annoyingly short intervals. We were also unlucky with less than hot water though other reviewers suggest this is not usual.

Having said that, we shall definitely be going again as in all other respects we loved it.
