What a gorgeous site! One of the biggest pluses, as far as I am concerned, was the adults only ruling. So restful to wake up there with no screaming children playing ball around the caravans, instead just trees, birds and blissful peace and quiet!

The shower block was spotless, toilets immaculate. And I absolutely loved the fact that there was a little bench inside the shower cubicle with a plastic curtain to keep the water out, so no more hopping on one foot while I tried to dry myself! Why can't more places have this?

Nearby is Matlock, a lovely little town. And although Darley Moor race track is right next door and occasionally the bikes were loud we didn't find it noisy.

All in all, I think this is one of the nicest sites we have tried.

Spent a lovely few days at this site. Great location, not far from the main road, and close enough to nearby Ashbourne with some lovely walks. 2 supermarkets close by for all provisions. Enclosed dog area within the woods where woofer could run off the lead using logs and fallen trees as a steeple chase, great fun. Owners were lovely and helpful, very welcoming and on hand if needed. Pitches were large and nicely separated so you feel like you have a little wood all to yourself. Adult only which is a huge bonus, nice and quiet. Just the way we like it.

Just returned yesterday after a quick weekend break at Woodland. We were also there over the Easter break, which was when the site changed to Adults Only.

Have to say the simplicity of the site is it's strongest point.

The pitches are hidden amongst the tall trees, which provide a cool canopy over the site. The trees and the bracken between divide the pitches perfectly.

Friendly welcome at the reception.

Facilities are very clean, however on busy dates, perhaps the two cubicles and three showers in the Gents toilets would be in demand.

The wildlife and variety of birds is very interesting to just sit and watch. Some people were bringing their own bird feeders to hook over a branch next to their units!

The pitches and road around the site were sometimes a little muddy due to the weather on our stays and, with the natural woodland debris underfoot, keeping the unit clean was a bit of a chore, wellies recommended!

Having visited several sites around the area over the years, Woodland will be our first choice in the future.

Definitely a de-stressing experience!

Ashbourne is a pretty town and Leek was a good day out also. Countless other points of interest surrounding.

We have just spent a peaceful and restful weekend at this lovely site. We were attracted by the fact it is an adult only site and the that you are not required to leave until 6pm on your departure date. The setting among the trees, the friendly helpful wardens and the close proximity to Ashbourne and the surrounding villages make this a very pleasant site to stay on. Because of the hard ground sturdy pegs and a strong arm are needed when putting up an awning. If they would also ban 'yapping' dogs the place would be perfect!

We've visited a few sites this year and felt this one was quite unique as we were pitched amongst the trees, which we really liked - we enjoyed the tranquility of this site.

The site is easily accessible off the A515 (short drive down a lane) and for us meant we had no hesitation taking the van out a few times - no difficult lanes or access to contend with. Despite this the site was quiet and although there was occasional slight road noise it was not intrusive at all.

It was also great to be able to walk down the quiet lanes immediately off the site and we did a lot of walking around the area.

The facilities were excellent - ample showers and toilets and very clean. It was quite cold when we stayed and the toilet/shower blocks were always warm.

The wardens were very friendly and helpful.

This is a site which met our expectations and which we would have no hesitation in recommending.

Since this site became Adults only we felt that it was high time to give it a visit - and we're so glad we did. Spent 4 nights prior to the May Bank Holiday. We were greated and booked in by Tony very quickly and told that we could pitch anywhere that was free. The pitches are all sited in the trees and very discreet. All hard standing - compacted earth and crushed stone - making very firm surfaces. Site facilities are spacious and spotless; there is loads of room the shower cubicle with a sectioned off part for your clothing - so no risk if getting it wet!

The site is only a couple of miles from Ashbourne town where there is a Sainsburys. M&S Food, Waitrose and Co-op to cater for all your needs. A good selections of small shops and several coffee shops complete the line. Oh - I forgot - a chippy in there market place - most important! There is also an excellent garden centre with restaurant and coffee shop less than a mile from the site - well worth a visit.

Local attractions abound in the Derbyshire Dales area of the park District. Dovedale is compulsory! The walk to ilam Hall is easy and pleasant.

Are there any downsides? Well traffic noise has been commented on, although it never bothered us. (The A515 road IS very busy and carries quite a bit of heavy traffic). Perhaps the one improvement that could be made is TV booster signals. The office is fed from a dish at the edge of the site, whilst the managers' have a full aerial installation for their own caravan. Reception was certainly hit and miss - more the latter!

Snelston village has nothing - but there is a decent pub in Clifton. It serves food at reasonable prices, and on light nights could be walked to across the fields.

All in all we had a really enjoyable stay at Woodlands and have added another 'must go back to' site to our list.

Management response: Thank you for your kind comments.

The TV reception is not great but if you have a directional aerial you should have no problems, some people bring an external aerial that they fix on a pole, these also work fine.

The satellite dish you refer to is a 4G dish that supplies fast broadband to the caravan park and allows us to have wifi all around the site and has nothing to do with TV.
