Although we have visited many camp sites throughout the UK, this was our very first with a caravan! Being brand new to caravanning we were quite apprehensive about our first trip out! I was quite worried about getting it onto the pitch and setting it up! I need not have worried! We were given a very warm and friendly welcome by the owners! They took us to our pitch and then helped us to position the caravan and get things set up. Later came back to check that we were ok and told us to ask if we needed any help at all.

The site is lovely. It is clearly well maintained and very user friendly. It was so peaceful and had a really good feeling about it.

The dog walking field was brilliant for our energetic dog. The water points are well situated and the electric hook up was problem free.

We had constant use of the free wifi and the TV reception was excellent. I'm on O2 and the mobile signal for calls / texting was fine.

We walked the short distance ( which is safe and off road) to Carsington Water visitor centre.

I would most certainly recommend this site to my family and friends and we will definitely return.

We been there last weekend.

Very clean, grass cut, large site as such, some Hardstanding, Rally side, big play area for kids and adults ( with into age related games, lol ). A pond in the middle with a big rabbit, ( not for BBQ ).

A big nice Dog Walk Area, Tent side, Ehu available, wifi advertised, near carsington waters ( 1 mile ), all in all very friendly and familiar.

The toilets are very friendly and nice, fresh flowers every day, some stuff they supply you can use, like shower gel, shampoo, deodorant and stuff, never seen this before on a side.

The showers nice and hot, just a bit too small in my opinion.

The WIFI Access is fairly poor, you only get good signal near the office otherwise if you use a ipad or something modern you can't get signal. My old notebook just managed.

I did not have any mobile reception, neither mobile network, but it looks is supported by O2 in this area.

The tent side is also very clean and very space.

Hardstanding are great and big.

Ehu available around the side, even for tents and Rally side.

No you can't swim in the pond!

There is a pen at the dog walking are with chickens, therefore you can buy fresh eggs in the shop,

Also supplies with news papers if you want them, and other basics.

There is a supply of dog poo bags around the caravan side which is very nice from the owners in case

Someone has the excuse he forgot this, lol,

It is quiet located even is next to the main road to carsington waters.

Well, you can hear some tosses speeding there motorbikes up and down on Saturday night, and the lorrys in the morning, but nothing major to complain.

We loved being there, big family / disabled shower room.

Easy walk around the site.

Ashbourne is about 20 minutes away, buxton about 40 minutes.

Unless you want to go shopping most entertainment like biking etc is available at carsington waters.

We definitely coming back as we enjoyed the very warm welcome, friendly owners, helpful advise and nice chats.

People on side are friendly and always chatting with you.

Missus had an issue being woken up by the ducks in the morning but she could hardly tell them off. Ha ha

If you looking for a nice, familiar, friendly and clean side, this is the one.

Just don't expect being on the internet all day. Lol

Tv reception is fairly good on standard caravan top aerials.

Have been twice to Carsington Fields this year, at the beginning of April, and the back end of May. On both occasions, we have been welcomed by the hosts and made very welcome. It has been an absolute pleasure to stay there.

On our first visit in April, we were on pitch 12 1/2, no 13

!, which was on an incline but with the aid of some bricks that we for bbq use, I managed to get the van level on the legs, with one side up on a levelling ramp. It was also very windy at this part of the site as it is high up. Having studied the other pitches, on our second visit, we asked for pitch 10, down by the pond which was more or less level and sheltered by some trees.

Located more or less next door to Carsington Water reservoir, it was convenient for a wander round there, visitor centre etc. Etc. , an enjoyable few hours and the weather was with us as well. On our visit there we were blessed with a fly past of a DC3 from the Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight. A spectacular sight I must say.

Ashbourne, Matlock, Bakewell and Buxton are all in easy reach and well worth a visit, also Derby is not far away either. If you fancy a trip to Nottingham, this can be done either by car or by public transport, the Red Arrow service runs from Derby bus station every 10 minutes between the two city's.

We tried the Indian takeaway service that is offered by the site which comes from Matlock. We were a little worried that it may be cold on arrival, but in fact it was the opposite, piping hot and very reasonably priced. Can thoroughly recommend this if you like Indian food.

The toilet block is small, but very clean with toiletries provided should you have forgotten yours at no extra cost. A nice touch. We did not use the shower facilities as we use our own in the van, but understand them to be very good.

All in all, this site is great, quiet, with not too many units crammed in like you can find elsewhere. The hosts are very nice, very helpful and genuinely pleased that you have chosen their location to spend your time away.

Not being too far away from this site enables us to get a 'sneaky' weekend away with not too much effort and will be certainly going back again soon.

Very nice site kept clean and tidy by very helpful owners who delivered our newspaper direct to our motorhome each morning.

Large field for dog walking which had an enclosed pen for the chickens and goats. Nice to have such a large area to let dogs off the lead.

Pitches slope slightly so you need levelling ramps. Our pitch was at the top so looked down right over the site. Unfortunately weather not good while there but plenty of nice walks around Carsington Reservoir made up for it. It's 8. 5 miles right round - well worth the effort.

Just a couple of down points - the pot wash area is really exposed to wind and rain and has very basic facilities. It needs a fence panel (or something) to give a bit of shelter and a re-think on the small shelf which holds the drainer. It's a major balancing act when standing plates etc to drain.

My only other problem was the size of the showers themselves. I did not mind paying the 1 to use them, it's all reflected in the nightly price, but the size of them are really small. Not easy to keep both hair and clothes dry.

Nice site but only for one visit.

We stayed here during the Easter break for 4 nights in our touring caravan. There is not a bad word I can say about it! Even though the sign on the gate said that the site was full, there was plenty of free space for the children to run around due to the owners keeping the green space in the middle of the site free of units. There was a lovely little pond (fenced, so safe for kids) and a bunny called Harry and also in an adjoining field there were pigmy goats and chickens. The facilities, although quite small for the size of the site, were immaculate and the owners and employees of the site were very helpful and friendly, always smiling and looking as if they love being there! It's very handy for Carsington Water and lots of places to see quite close to. The only one thing that slightly marred it (which is quite insignificant really) is the hardstanding pitches needed to be packed down a bit more as the gravel was quite deep and loose which caused us a slight problem when trying to level out our van. But otherwise we loved this site and are looking forward to going back as soon as we possibly can!

We have just returned from a short break with tourer and tent. It is a beautiful site located close to Carsington Water. Peaceful, Quiet, Clean - the shower rooms are well worth the extra, even down to the complimentary toiletries. The managers, The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and helpful. The tv. And WIFI are a little unpredictable but, the facilities in general are brilliant even down to catering for young children, they seem to have thought of everything and our spaniel particularly enjoyed the walk. Well worth a visit whether in a tent or tourer. We hope to return soon.
