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.

We received a very warm welcome at Woodland View. We were given a talk through the site and then advised to pitch anywhere. The site itself is beautiful, each hard standing pitch sitting in amongst the trees so all of the pitches have a wonderful woodland feel to them. The toilet block was immaculate and it was lovely and warm all the time. Push button showers which were powerful enough and the temperature was set just right. The disabled facilities and laundry also looked good although we didn't need to use these. The enclosed dog walk was brilliant for the dogs, giving plenty of space for them to run around off lead in amongst the trees. We decided on some walks as the weather was good, and the owner went through a few possible walks for us, giving us clear directions and advise on where to go. They directed us to walk through fields to the pub in Clifton which is a 2 mile walk with gorgeous scenery on the way. The next day we walked down to the river Dove where we had a picnic, again given good directions and the owners also let us borrow a map to help, although their directions were that good that it was not required.

One thing that we felt was excellent was that we did not need to vacate the pitch until 6pm, giving us an 'extra' day to Rest! We have been racking our brains to think of something that would improve this lovely little site, and all that we could think was that it has no shop close by for essentials (although there was a what we nicknamed a 'robo-shop' in Clifton)

We will definitely return to this site in the future as we really enjoyed our stay there!

Just returned from 3 Days at Woodlands and our first experience camping under trees! Excellent site, friendly welcome, great pitch ( ref to previous reviews regarding rock pegs!), great location for visiting anything within the area. Great value for money, especially staying until 6pm. Toilet blocks very clean, and good design. Great dog walking area. My daughter absolutely loved the woodland setting. Great shame this is moving to adults only but I'm sure the owners must of thought this through, otherwise we would definitely return.

A very brief review as we have visited a number of times before and left more comprehensive reviews.

Once again we enjoyed our weekend and the site is great.

Unfortunately, for us at least, the site is to become adults only in 2015. A shame as this had become our Peak district 'go to' site, however I can understand this decision as there is not a lot here for children and it may be more viable as adult only.

We wish the owners all the best and may return at some point if we are lucky enough to lose the sprogs for a rare weekend of peace!

Booked this site last minute and best thing we did. Site located near Darley Dale motor bike track( noise not intrusive). Was welcomed by Carol and Tony and shown to our pitch. All pitches are in the trees of the woodland and is beautiful. Showers are push button but work fine and toilets all spotless but only 2 in the gents. May be an issue on full site on busy morning. 3 showers stalls though. Children are actively encouraged to wander in the wooded areas and make dens etc. Dogs welcome too. Very relaxed and informal and about 5 minutes from Ashbourne. Fee parking with shuttle bus on the Homebase car park on way into Ashbourne. Loved the site and will be back.

Pitches are hidden amongst the trees in a small wood and they are separated by the foliage giving each one it's own private area. It means you can't spread out with windbreakers etc taking other campers space.

Showers and toilets are spotless. Water is lovely and hot. Pot wash area has new sinks. Did not use the laundry room but washing machine was nice large size.

Bit of road noise from the main road but that died down at night.

Lovely and peaceful sitting listening to the birds in the evening

Excellent fenced dog walk area. Our springer spaniel had great fun running around. You are allowed to walk in the woods but it was very muddy when we were there. Children have fun building dens in the woods.

Very much away from it all. Nearest pub is two and a half miles away but lovely walk down country lanes to get to it.

Would we go again - a very big YES. Lovely site.
