We had a fantastic stay the campsite is in a great location with a short walk to Carsington Waters.

There are plenty of villages around to visit. The wardens were very friendly and met us on arrival.

The pitches had plenty of space and the site was quiet at night. There is a good area for dog walking.

The toilet and wash facilities were very clean and had a basket of essentials if you forget yours.

My wife and I stayed here the last weekend they were open last year (2011), and again this weekend.

We find it to be a lovely well thought out site - gravel tracks and hardstandings for tourers and tracks into the camping areas.

We use our own facilities so cannot comment on the showers etc. There are numerous water points around the site and a large dog walk area.

For those that think it's expensive try parking at Carsington Water! 2. 50 for two hours! (I drove the kids down for a treat after tea, you have to pay at all times!)

We have found the wardens and owners to be polite and helpful at all times.

I would recommend for those looking for somewhere fairly quiet

We all were not impressed at all with this site. It as far too expensive at 23 per night ( with hook up).

The wifi didn't work unless you stood outside the shack (office), the bins were miles away, there were only 2 toilets and the showers had a crazy price of 1 to use!

It didn't seem in the Peak District at all, just on the edge. There was hardly no tv stations and no phone signal for vodaphone, orange, or o2.

There were no views at all, it did have a nice pond and some ducks but that was it. Oh sorry there was a cockerel (didn't see it just heard it) that did not shut up from around 5am each morning!

The warden I do have to say was very nice, and the toilet block was clean and had nice towels and homely touches, but that is all the positives I can think off. We definitely wont be going back there.

Just come back from a great long weekend at this site. Owner and Manager were both lovely and very helpful. Toilet block, whilst small and basic, was clean and smart. Site was lovely and flat with spacious pitches and lots of electric hook ups.

Loads of open space for everyone to enjoy. The children all enjoyed biking round and had lots of room to do it. Ducks waddling round, fish pond, free range chicken area and very sizeable dog walking area where the dogs can be off the lead.

Very close to Carsington Waters which is a lovely resevoir with great children's play area and all the trappings one would like for a good day out.

Many other things close by, we had a great day at the farm and playarea at Chatsworth House too. All round super - highly recommend for familys and others alike.

The owners of this site have really thought of everything and clearly care about their customers. Lots of small details make this site just that bit better than most.

The site itself is very well kept indeed. A butler sink under each water tap, so no mud. A lovely dog walk area where you can let your dogs off the lead. Several types of handwash in the loos. Plus basket of toiletries for your use in case you forget anything. No electrical sockets in the toilet block, but a notice saying a hair dryer is available for use in the office. A fenced in hen area, with chicks and rabbit! A fenced in pond, again with resident mallard and chicks.

The views are stunning.

Plenty of space to play games.

At the top of the site is a gate which takes you onto the lane, across which is a lovely public walk taking you through the woods. Very pretty.

Toilet block kept spotlessly clean. 1 for the showers, but never a queue.

The kids booked on a multi activity day at Carsington Water which was excellent and included wind-surfing, sailing and kayaking. Followed by an hour and a half of windsurfing the next day - 10, great value. They also hire bikes and have a climbing wall. The visitor centre and shops are pretty good too.

My kind of site. Thanks.

Reviewer: Clairemce 2 reviews from this member

We visited for 2 nights at short notice, and were pleased to find a generous size site, which looks well kept. However, we were told to pitch in the camping field as the lawns were to be mowed on the lower field. It was quite exposed and as it was really windy, was difficult to pitch, and a really good walk to the facilities. The toilets were clean as other reviews state, however they were tiny. Sinks squeezed into spare spaces. Showers not big enough to take a child in with you. 3 toilets, 2 sinks and 2 showers are not enough for the size of site. Especially as we were charged 19 per pitch per night without electricity. The bins are by the way in which is a long walk from the camping field with armfuls of recycling. Wouldn't go back as I feel there are much better value for money sites around. There is no play area for children even though there is plenty of room for one.
