We pulled up later than expected, 7'ish, and were met by the lady in reception, nice lady btw, who booked us in and gave us the low down on the site. Plenty of pitch choice as its early in the season and the site was only half full. Pleasant enough stay as are the facilities, clean and tidy, with a potential down side being some noise from the main road nearby (A515) if that type of thing offends you. Ashbourne is 5 minutes drive away, Derby, Uttoxeter, Buxton a little further if you're feeling adventurous. Across the road from the site is Darley Moor race circuit which provides entertainment, over some weekends, if motor sport does it for you, information when race meetings take place can be found on the Woodlands website or ask when booking. All in all a pleasant stay and I guess we'll be going back.

Visited at the beginning of November just before the site shut for the winter. We tend to like to use the caravan to visit new areas but we get drawn back to this caravan site and the Peak District, which we love. We have been three times this year to Woodland and its just perfect for our requirements for a site for the weekend near the Peaks.

Please see earlier reviews for more detail but suffice to say we would thoroughly recommend the site.

A lovely site set among a small wood, all pitches are randomly arranged so you get a sense of privacy and space.

The facilities are superb, clean, modern and heated, although I suspect in summer could become a little congested.

A real bonus is being able to stay until 6 pm on your day of departure which makes a big difference to a weekend away.

The site is well located for all the peak district.

Very pleasant and helpful owners.

We were there for 4 days in appalling weather, but still enjoyed it.

You must be prepared for it to get quite muddy in wet weather as the roads are loose surface ( which adds to its natural appeal )

Highly recommended and will definitely be returning

Reviewer: MrMrsMagill 5 reviews from this member

Excellent site, with fab facilities and great staff/owners. We would strongly recommend this site. You can park up amongst the trees which makes a great setting for a camping trip! Would be great for kiddies wanting a (safe) adventure in the woods! The facilities are excellent, nice and clean, heated and behind double doors to keep the bugs out! Good laundry and disabled bathroom facilities also. Great friendly owners, who welcomed us with a smile and went out of their way help us enjoy our stay. It's is a green site, so you are encouraged to recycle and the electricity hookup is only 10amp. Not an issue for us! Nice walk across the fields or down the road to the local village. Not close to any amenities however and we were disappointed when we didn't find a pub in the village! A great stay and we would definitely stay again.

Reviewer: Clairneville 7 reviews from this member

This is a stunning, small woodland site. The pitches are separated by natural boundaries of ferns and shrubs which effectively angle the units so you don't get that nasty uniform feel that many large sites struggle to avoid.

We dropped our teenagers off at Alton Towers for a day then ventured in to Ashbourne. Perfect get away.

There is no shop/bar/birdie dance disco or purpose built children's play area. The younger children we saw had great fun playing hide and seek and den building in between the trees. Proper fun!

The facilities (loos, showers, washing up) were spotless and owners really friendly without being intrusive.

A pleasure to see recycling done as well as this too.

Only negative: uniform campsites now look very uninviting and boring! Not enough of these kind of more natural sites. Loved it here :)

This is an awesome site for a family with kids. We had booked here in order to visit Alton Towers which is around 20 minutes away by car.

The caravan site is located in a wooded area, each pitch looks like it has been carved out of the surrounding forestry. There are areas behind (or in front) of the pitches which my kids played in constantly, there was ample room for them to cycle around the site, and they played with other kids until we had to bring them in at 9pm, 2 hours past their normal bedtime.

To be honest, I think the kids would have forgone the trip to Alton Towers in order to play more on the site.

The facilities are spotless clean and the huge load washer and dryer (10. 1 Kg) meant that we went home with no washing or drying to be done after a full week away.

A fantastic, well priced site that I would heartily recommend.
