Spent two nights here over a weekend. Lovely site situated very close to Carsington Water. Very friendly staff on arrival told us we could camp where we wanted, the place was very spaced out and not too busy at all. Lots of space for the kids to play games.

Toilet facilities were very clean and tidy but just not enough. Ladies have 3 toilets, 2 sinks and 2 showers (1 per time) men have less, so in the morning and early evening there was usually a queue.

Fish & Chip van visits on a Friday at 8pm which was great and ice cream van came on Saturday night about 9pm. Would definitely recommend this site.

We were on the top field -smashing views with lovely mown dog walking area around a wild flower meadow. Raised BBQ's allowed - bricks provided. Fenced pond and trees planted in between pitches on lower field - will be great when matured.

Spotless toilets with creams, smellys to help yourself to (lovely touch). Very friendly, helpful staff with reception selling essentials. 5 mins walk to Carsington entrance which is a fantastic place for walking, picnics, wildlife etc. We only had one night but will be back. Thank you.

Just arrived back from Carsington Fields after a hot and enjoyable weekend. We found the site to be very good and generally quiet after 11.00pm, but the cockerel that woke us at 4.00am wasn't particularly popular.

Toilet facilities were reasonably clean( apart from the freshly cut grass trailed onto the floors) but were woefully inadequate for the number of pitches. I appreciate that there has been planning issues about increasing the facilities but the men only have two cubicles, one urinal, two sinks (very close to the urinal) and two shower cubicles (1 per go).

Pitch size was excellent, and there's a large space for ball games etc, but no actual playground. The remote location also means a small shop would be handy for basics / sweets / ice cream's this particular hot weekend.

Nice site overall but spoilt by the inadequate bathroom facilities, lack of shop and lack of playground. An opportunity missed I feel by the owners

We only stayed here for one night, but one or two things stood out for us.

The owners of the site were really friendly & helpful. You can even order Sunday papers, delivered to your unit by the owners' young son in his toy electric buggy! The site is pretty, rather than spectacular. It is certainly very clean &, as has been noted in other reviews, there is a small duck pond by the hardstandings.

I don't think that one urinal for a site of this size (especially with all the tenters using the site) is nearly enough. Similarly, two cubicles in the gents & three in the ladies is an under resource from our point of view. The showers are pay per use - not very fair if you are a family & it is a hot summer day. Finally, please make sure that you are stocked up with provisions before you arrive - one or two (literally) basics available from the office, but other than that there are no food shops within sight of the site.

This site is right next to Carsington Water.

It was 15 a night for 2 people without hook up but it was worth it. There was loads of open space despite the site being classed as full. We were not all hemmed in like the sites further up the road (pudding room). Lots of children racing about so I prob wouldn't recommend for couples who dislike children doing the things kids do.

Lots of large tents and they had no probs pitching and having enough space around them (Monty's, Ohio's etc.).

A nice dog walk round one of the fields. Very dog friendly.

Loads of drinking water points and really great water pressure. In the washing up area the water was lovely and hot.

Limited facilities ie 2 toilets and 2 showers for each gender. However after speaking to the owners it appears that they could not get planning permission for anything bigger which is a real shame however they were clean and you didn't really have to wait very long.

We will definitely go again a nice friendly welcoming site with plenty of space we really felt like we had our little camp.

Went to this site (2 tents) for 4 nights commencing Whit Bank Holiday Monday.

On arrival had a very friendly welcome from the owners who directed us to our pitch and offered advice (as required), in fact they were great for a chat / local info. Throughout the stay and are always on site / on hand.

The site is set in 2 fields with the majority of pitches being slightly sloped (something to bear in mind!), although all are of a very good size.

Even though it was bank holiday week the site seemed relatively quiet, the owners preferring to keep it this way to ensure space, tranquillity and to avoid over-stretching the facilities (i guess).

There is a central pond feature with the surrounding grassed area left empty for children's play area etc.Overall the site was very relaxed and peaceful.

The toilet / shower block is new and meticulously maintained, albeit small (but copes OK); shower rooms again lovely and warm but small (and 1 to use). Entrance to Toilets also doubles as an information point it seems!

9/10 for the site I think, great owners!

Location is perfect, less than 0.5 miles to join the Carsington water circular trail (which is a lovely 8 mile walk/cycle). Visitor centre is @ 1 mile from site and is nice with good facilities, gift shops and cafe. Fortunately we had superb weather to make the most of it all!.

Out and about here are plenty of pubs /towns within easy reach.

9/10 for location.

Would definitely recommend this site (despite the slightly sloping pitches!).
