Fantastic site so peaceful and relaxing. Our two young children love this site had so much fun playing in the woods and making dens. The pitches were large and private.Its a short drive into Ashbourne which is a lovely place to visit lots of nice quaint shops and a nice park .

The toilets and showers immaculate and the owners very helpful.We would definitely recommend this site and will be returning soon as possible. Just so nice to get away and enjoy the outdoors.

Very impressed with the site.

Locked gates on the entrance to which you're given a key ensures nobody can access the site with a vehicle unless they're staying meaning total security.

The toilet block was also locked and was spotlessly clean with modern facilities and a hairdryer that actually worked.

The laundry area had little touches like a drainer to help the drying of pots instead of them swimming on the draining board, even a microwave for use should you need one.

A lot of thought has gone into this site to give it such a good layout, nobody directly next to anyone else, still lots of trees and greenery between each pitch.

We'll definitely be using this site again.

We stayed at the woodlands for 2 nights our two children aged 7 and 3 love this site too so nice and relaxing children loved the woods to make dens. There is lots of space between units.

All facilities very clean and staff very friendly and helpful.

We have visited many sites with lots of children facilities but our children say this is the best weekend ever. We find it a lovely getaway and we hope to return asap

Would recommend it to anyone

Just returned from a great weekend at Woodland Caravan Park. If you like to park up and explore the area by foot this site is for you. You are on a large country estate with lots of footpaths to try. However great base to explore by car if you prefer.

The site itself is set in a woodland with aprox 40 individual, level, hardstanding pitches with electric and lighting and are separated by hedges to give you privacy. No play area so not many children on site which was great for us, although there was one family there with small children who seemed to be enjoying the site.

The toilet block was clean and tidy with 3 showers in each, (which I must say have been the most spacious we have used this year with a dressing area in the cubicle with a bench seat and hooks for your clothes), male and female and a separate disabled toilet / shower and also a laundry with washer, dryer and washing up facilities. My only criticism of the showers was the push button shower and water not hot just warm when I used it, could do with a shower curtain.

There is a 1/4 acre fenced dog walk area where you can let your dog off lead, however this is a woodland area so not an open space to throw a ball but enough for them to do their business.

The owners were great, very friendly and helpful, gave us a map with a circular walk plotted for us to follow, which is also sign posted by them along the way so you know you are in the right place. Excellent idea. Also told us of other public footpaths we could pick up from along this walk to join up with the local village of Clifton.

The village of clifton nearby was a hour walk across fields and public paths or 20 min walk along main road or 5 mins by car.

There is a great pub there The Cock Inn, serving good pub grub, lunch til 3pm then 6.30 til 8.30pm. They allowed us in with the dog and were very welcoming.

Ashbourne is another 20 mins by foot or 5 mins by car. Lovely market town with plenty pubs, shops, DIY shops, Halfords etc and a Sainsburys for your essentials. They have a market in the centre on a weekday, (I think it was a Thursday) and Sundays. If you are in a motorhome, there is a pay and display car park behind the Doctors surgery on the edge of town by the Halfords and Homebase which has a small coach parking area no height barriers. You can even stay overnight for just 30p. (we always find it a problem finding a carpark without height restrictions).

One point to note. The site is opposite Darley Moor Race Circuit. If you visit on a race weekend as we did, you will experience noise from the racing. However, do not let this put you off visiting this site. It will stop around 3/4pm and also the site website has a link with the race meeting dates on so you could always visit on a quiet weekend.

Overall a very enjoyable weekend and will definitely return next year.

Just come back from a lovely weekend at woodland caravan park and I have to say I was very impressed. The site is situated in a pine wood all the pitches are hardstanding, in bays surrounded by trees. At the back of the site is two large fields in which you can play ball games and walk dogs. The owners came out of the site office and made us feel very welcome. I would recommend this site to anyone.

A fantastic site. Get away from it all here. A new site in 2007 situated in the middle of the trees on hard standings.

On site facilities included immaculate toilet / shower blocks with hair dryer / shaving points & disabled facilities, on site laundry room, re-cycling facilities, elsan point, numerous water points around the site, no children's play area but they did make dens in the surrounding woodland

A dog exercise field that was natural and fenced in, the dogs loved it

No van is overlooked due to the layout being well thought out. You know it is safe when you have to lock/unlock the gate to enter/leave the site! nothing has been missed on the site

Five minutes from Ashbourne with the usual supermarkets/restaurants etc.

The welcome from Charles is second to none, nothing is too much trouble. Very helpful in advising you about the site and the local area. The site was busy but there was very little noise and you heard very little road noise considering it was just a stones throw away. A good base for visiting carrsington water / Ashbourne and the surrounding area.

We enjoyed it so much we have booked again for the august bank holiday

The site is a credit to the owners, & just how caravanning should be.
