Reviewer: Juliemay 1 review from this member

 We chose this site for our very first caravanning experience and it really does tick all the boxes! It is relatively small, approx 10 hardstanding pitches and a few grass pitches. The pitches were very spacious with lots of grass area by each one.

The toilet block and showers were absolutely spotless and brand new. They were cleaned both days we were there and she did a really thorough job both times. I was a bit unsure about using site facilities and we went for a van with a separate shower for this reason, but I didn't hesitate to use these, and if all sites are like this our shower will never be used!

The kids (aged 4 & 2) loved playing on their bike and scooters straight in front of our van, it was really safe as we were at the bottom so no through traffic. It helped as there was another young family and my girls made friends with them and they played for hours! There is a small play area at the entrance to the site which was good for younger kids, and a separate field to play football etc in.

There was also a walk round the perimeter of the site but we didn't attempt this as we overheard some people saying it was quite muddy - well we have had a lot of rain recently!

We didn't see much of the surrounding area, although Alton Towers is only a couple of miles away but our kids a bit too young yet. We did nip into Alton to find a shop and although there is a small one, there's nowhere really to park, and the road through the village has not much pavement and is quite bendy, so was difficult with the pushchair.

Very quiet at night, and very dark on site so you need a torch if you want to visit the loo after dark!

Overall, a great site, very very clean, very quiet, exactly what we hoped caravanning would be like, would definitely recommend it. Just hope future sites are of the same standard because the bar has now been set!

Final point, great value compared to other sites at just 16 per night for the 4 of us inc EHU.

 Stayed here on Friday 13th July for a ghost hunt at Alton Towers. It's literally 5 minutes from the park - on the road that take you straight there.

A new site, only opened two weeks beforehand. It's a tidy little site with great views.

The new purpose-built toilet/shower block is very very nice - possibly one of the best showers I've had on a campsite - and I like to stay on 5 star sites normally. Very new, very clean.

Friendly owners who showed us to our pitch.

No complaints at all with this site - although we were not there very long.

Hookups were available and there was a play park there for kids.

I would stay here again - but only if visiting Alton Towers.

 We spent Friday night to Monday here. We booked with family and got 2 Pitches next to each other.

The owner, Kieran, was very friendly on the phone and very helpful throughout all of our stay. This site has only just opened. - first week in July so we were one of the first visitors. Slight negative is that they don't accept cards or cheques so it's cash or bank transfer. I imagine this will change once they are established.

The site itself is small - just 15 pitches I think all with electric hook up. 5 hard standing, the others grass. The hard standing are half hard, half grass. They seem big enough for a decent sized caravan and awning although we only had a porch awning.

Facilities are limited. Just a toilet block and showers, waste water point, chemical waste area and washing up area under cover, with a playground and a football area away from the pitches. However this is what we like so it was not a problem.

Kieran offers a half drum barbeque plus a big throwaway barbecue for 5 pounds. It includes the spatulas etc. Bargain.

The Toilet block was brand new and pristine. 2 loos and 2 showers per sex, plus a family bathroom with a shower, basin and loo in one room. The showers are push type showers. Kieran has had to change the temperature as they were a little too hot for children but again I think this will settle. A nice touch is pots of flowers/plants near the washing up area, and some laminated information about what's on locally, including local buses to Alton Towers theme park.

Playground is small but perfect for per teens. The football pitch is great to keep slightly older entertained.

The site is only about 5 minutes drive from Alton Towers, so I imagine it will become very popular.

All in all it was perfect for us - a quick visit to Alton Towers and the rest of the time spent at the campsite. Great. If we are in the area again we would definitely go back again.

 We have just spent 4 nights at this site, which had only opened for the first time the previous week-end.

The owners were very welcoming, pleasant and helpful throughout our stay.

There are 15 pitches, all with 16 amp electric hook up. 10 on level hard standing and 5 on level grass.

The toilet / shower block comprises:

Two toilet cubicles, two showers and two wash hand basins with electric shaver points for men.

Two toilet cubicles, two showers and two wash hand basins for women.

A family toilet / shower / wash hand basin with baby changing facilities, which doubles up as a disabled facility.

It is all brand new, as I write, and in excellent condition. There was plenty of free hot water and good showering facilities with electric hand dryers for all the wash hand basins.

The undercover washing up area comprises two sinks / drainers with free hot water, which are excellent.

For 5 the owners can provide a decent sized, portable barbecue for nightly hire. The price includes cleaning after use. A nice touch.

The site has a 'drive over' drain for grey water disposal and a 'drive alongside' drinking water tap.

There is a dump site with water for the disposal of chemical waste.

Rubbish disposal is provided in a large 'wheelie' bin.

We chose this site because of it's proximity to the 'Alton Towers' theme park which is just over 2 miles away.

The site is very quiet & peaceful with a play area for children and a good sized, mowed field where a ball can be kicked around.

The local pub is about a ten minute walk away on mainly level ground and there is a general store about a mile away in the village of Alton.

Unfortunately, wi-fi is not available because of the poor reception in the area. This is out of the control of the owners.

We really enjoyed our stay at this well thought out, family run campsite and would recommend it to other users visiting the area.
