Friendly staff on arrival and made our dog feel very welcome too! Our pitch wasn't the largest and struggled to park the car, but we managed. Unfortunately, we had a problem pegging the awning as the ground was so hard and even the larger pegs took some hammering to get them in.

However, the site is easy to get to and great for a quiet, dog friendly atmosphere, which is exactly what we went for. The dog enclosure is fantastic and we made use of that a lot during our Easter break.

The showers/toilets were clean and warm and the site is perfectly located for visiting the local attractions.

Bakewell is worth a visit and we were amazed at how dog-friendly the shops were too!

Wifi/3G is virtually non-existent, but we expected that in the middle of a wood. The site offers wifi which is cheap, but we didn't use this facility. Good phone signal however.

Lots of young children were riding bikes and making dens in the wood, which was great to see, but I think older children may have been a little bored as there are no other facilities on-site.

There was motor-cycle racing in the nearby track, but it wasn't as loud as we were expecting, so I wouldn't let that put you off.

We would return in the future as it's so dog-friendly and the area is a great place to visit and see the peak district.

This was our first ever caravan trip. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and no question seemed daft to ask. Although there is slight road noise the situation amongst trees made you feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere. Showers hot, clean and well heated. There are some really nice local walks and lots of beautiful villages to visit. We would definitely return to this site. Although there is no on-site shop there is a 'vending' shop at the rear of the cock inn in the nearest village of Clifton which is open 7-11.

Stayed at this caravan site for 4 months last year, cannot fault any part of this beautiful site, showers, and disabled shower, washing, laundry blocks spotless, site itself was woodland but no paper's or rubbish about, it is picked up daily by the husband and wife team who do a great job of managing the site, nothing is to much trouble for them, very friendly and hospitable, I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone, Hope to return again this year.

We had just picked up our new motorhome and decided to try it at a local site near our house.

We were attracted to this site due to it being in a wooded area.

We arrived early evening, we were greeted by a really friendly person, who explained everything to me and who are on site all the time.

The spaces are of an excellent size and are hard standing, I fitted in nicely at 24ft and the width of our space was really good with more than enough room for a second vehicle (my wife's car this time).

The facilities are really good, the toilet and showers were clean and nice and warm plus the added bonus of the showers being free :)

All the usual facilities (elsen disposal, grey waste, water, recycling bins) for the dog owners there is even a fenced of exercise area in the woods :)

We did not notice the road noise as the A515 is about 1/4 mile away from the closest point on the site but it is a personal thing, it did not bother us.

The price is very good, no extra cost for the second vehicle, Electric hookup included, free showers and even better you can stay until 6pm!

Even though it is less than 5 miles from our house, we will use again when my wife is working and I want a night out in the motorhome with the Kids.

We stayed for a long weekend in our camper. The dog walk area is great and the spaces between pitches are good.

Lots of lights were out around the site perimeter and on our pitch but we were very early season I suppose.

As many others have said the ground is compacted hardcore/stones and I struggled with my rock pegs to be honest.

Not much near by, we did walk into Ashbourne on one occasion but you will end up in a taxi home - unless you obviously walk a lot.

Very nice people run the site and are happy to help.

We been there couple of times,

A very nice, quiet, location between trees and woodlands.

Friendly wardens, clean place, heated clean modern shower and toilet facilities.

Chemical disposal point, water supply, security lights all around the park at night,

Kids and dogs welcome.

Kids play between the trees and woodland, dogs have there own fenced up dog walking area,

Now they have WIFI access which is at a good reception,

Mobile network and mobile phone network is decent available depending on supplier ( 3 in my case and O2 )

Nearby village is worth a walk down the road, around 1, 8 miles.

It can be loud at times as there is the old airfield next door over the road, means on race days or concerts you can hear the noise, so check with the place about events.

BBQ allowed.

No extra charge for awnings.

Dogs 1 each.

Disabled Facilities, all on level Ground and Hardstanding

The pitches a very spicy and big enough for a twin axle with awning and car,

Also privacy between the pitches as every pitch has natural borders between through grass, trees or bushes.

Electric hook up available on every pitch.

We been there on different times a year for the 4th year,

Even with kids playing or loads of dogs we never been disturbed or had trouble.

Allways nice and pleasant to come back.

In bad weather and rain, the positive factor is that the trees holding the rain up which is nice

As you. Still can rush to the showers without getting soaked. Lol

On sunny days you may experience a lack of pure sunshine but still warm and pleasant.

Very recommendable for families, adults only, dog owners and people who like it quiet and going for long walks.

( people down the village recommendet a Dogwalk area along the river which is great but around 2. 3 miles from the side )
