 Beautiful site with great facilities, fully serviced pitches, toilets, showers, washing up area with fridge.

Free WiFi is an additional benefit.

Really friendly owners,

Looking forward to a return visit

 The location is beautiful, quiet and very well located for tourism into the Peak District and local attractions such as Alton Towers(I'm rather old however for those amusements!)

Good sized pitches and many fully serviced.

Toilet facilities are very clean although they could become crowded if the site was busy. Very friendly and not far from local villages with shops and pubs.

Would certainly recommend

But be warned ⚠️ Don't trust SATNAV for your route!

 Well what can I say

It was our first time in our own made campervan

It was a very nice site, clean, friendly

Toilets were out of this world, water was hot, never had to queue for shower or toilets

Oscar the dog was lovely

Camp was kept very nice

Only one issue we had was our dog not used to been on the lead to do her toilet needs, wish there was an empty field were she could of ran and we could of got the mess up

 Arrival at site was very friendly, drove down to pitch we had booked No 12. To find it very muddy. I know we had a fair amount of rain prior to our stay. In 2 minds to put our small awning up because of the muddy pitch which also sloped quite bad. Sorry I have a real hangup of trapzing mud into our caravan.

Our Friends were on pitch 11 which was even worse. Really water logged.

That said enjoyed our stay here, toilets / showers were really clean. If we were to stay again would choose the fully serviced pitches as these seemed to be well drained.

Very close to Alton Towers and other pubs / eateriers.

 Lovely clean, quiet campsite. Staff friendly and helpful.

5 minute walk to the nearest bar and restaurant 10 minutes away from Alton Towers.

Good base.

 Really enjoyed our long weekend here. My daughter particularly loved all the animals.

The site was spotless as were the toilet and shower facilities, a credit to the staff.

We will definitely be back.

 Great base for just relaxing, or to explore the lovely countryside,

You can drop onto a disused railway line into the village of Alton, further on is the Ramblers retreat and further afield, Alton towers is a very short drive, you might be able to walk there,

Would recommend this site cheers

 We have just returned from a 3 night stay.

This is a superb campsite close to Alton Towers. We had a lovely stay here,

It has everything you need - great pitches, a toilet and shower block and a ball park for the kids. We will be returning.

Reviewer: Mummymills 11 reviews from this member

 We have just returned from 8 nights at Lower Micklin and had a lovely time. Upon arrival we had to pay for the additional guests as our initial payment is only including 2 adults.

Pitch sizes were fantastic. We have a very large tent & there was stacks of room for the tent, car & space to sit outside. Our pitch was number 25 which was in a separate area to the main stretch. Slightly further up the amenities block but a lovely area.

The only negative was that due to the layout, pitches in this field were in the shade by 4:30 on an evening, which was a real shame when the rest of the campsite was basking in 25 degree sun! Be mindful of this when booking. Also worth noting is that the pitches in this area only have a 5amp hook-up so we had to be careful of what we could use.

Toilets & showers were fine. There were 2 toilets & showers each for men & ladies, as well as a family room with toilet, shower & baby change. The showers are free, push button with plenty of hot water. They were all cleaned regularly,

There are two wash-up sinks that got busy at peak time. But it was nice to stand and have a natter with the other campers whilst waiting.

Thereís a good sized ball field, a wooden play park, and a separate dog walking field. There is a field with alpacas, hens & a cockerel, Oscar the dog, and some guinea pigs.

Quiet time is from 11pm until 7am & we didnít experience any noise outside these times.

The majority of people using this site are visiting nearby Alton Towers. We didnít but there was enough to do in the area to keep us busy for 8 days. We went to Waterworld, Carsington, Dovedale, Sudbury Hall, Ashbourne, Tissington and Matlock Bath.

We cooked on site most nights but on the last night we struggled to find somewhere nice to eat that was suitable for the kids. We tried the nearby Blacksmith Arms but even from the car park we could smell the chip pan. We then drove to the Raddle Inn, about 3 miles away. There was a cute play area, but the food was quite poor and very expensive. We did stop for lunch st the local Denstone Hall farm shop. The food here was delicious and the setting was beautiful, I couldíve spent a fortune in the gift shop.
