Reviewer: Rachel M 6 reviews from this member

 This was our first camping trip for several years & our first with our young grandchildren.

The site has had a complete upgrade since our last visit.

The toilet/shower blocks are immaculate.

The children really enjoyed the playground.

The tent pitches are fairly flat.

We all had a great couple of days & we're now looking forward to more camping in the future.

Reviewer: Einsteinwasright 5 reviews from this member

 Nice enough campsite, good facilities, clean, large and open spaces.

Not many tents, mostly motorhomes & caravans.

A bit disappointed as we had booked and requested staying in a specific tent, no electric, area which they had confirmed, but on arrival we were put amongst caravans, not sure if the pitch they gave us had recently been converted because it was impossible to get tent pegs into the ground due to the amount of gravel/stones.

The site is lovely and safe, surrounded by trees so there is no view at all of the Peak District, also be warned there is a haulage company across the road who start up very early and operate 24/7, not the idyllic, peaceful countryside location we had expected!

Date of Visit: October 2018 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: TouringCampers 5 reviews from this member

 Lovely site, checked in at reception by a lady, very polite and helpful. It was Halloween weekend and she gave the children some trick or treats and details of the park, then radioed a gentleman who took us down to the bottom section of the park next to the play area, which was great for the kids. He told us where everything was and said have a great weekend and just give him a shout if needed anything. The park itself is very clean and tidy and fantastic. Very clean shower block and loos.

Small shop that sells most things that you normally forget to take with you, in my case tooth brush.

While we stayed we asked about a seasonal pitch and are thinking of taking one for 2019 season.

Thankyou to the staff and manager for a great stay and will see you soon x 


Date of Visit: August 2017 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Reviewer: Susangibbons 5 reviews from this member

 The site is clean tidy and well kept the showers are hot and free. However because there are a lot of touring vans permanently pitched but empty the site lacks the atmosphere of a campsite. The pitches are very uneven and sloped so tricky for a trailer tent. We were on the middle field on the edge near the road once pitched we realised the bottom field was flatter nearer the toilets and the play area which with a 10 month old would have been much better but we weren't offered this. There are strange rules such as no cycling or scooters on site and no washing to be hung outside tent we were asked to move towels which were on a small camping rotary airer! Not causing any issue really.

It would be good to have a bucket and mop in the showers as they cut the grass a lot and the cubicles where usually muddy.

On the bank holiday weekend they decided to cut down tree branches next to the play area with large chain saw with no safety equipment or health and safety covered it was very dangerous.

The lady in the office was friendly but not the men who were often driving around to fast and very grumpy.

Don't arrive between 1 and 2 as they close for lunch and won't open!

If you are on the non electric pitches these are on a very steep slope

We chose the site as it was very reasonable priced and the location is very good. 

Date of Visit: August 2017 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Reviewer: Andyboylester 7 reviews from this member

 Just got back this evening after a four night short break at this campsite. We chose it in the first place because it was reasonably priced and we could bring our pet dog. Our pitch was large as we needed space for our trailer tent and a pup tent for my son and his partner, and we had electric hook-up. On arrival, we where directed by signs to the reception, which includes a very well stocked shop, where the lady took pains to find out exactly what we needed and then changed our allocated pitch to suit us better, because the weather had been quite bad and our original pitch would have been a bit boggy. Then she collared a young chap to take us to our pitch, which was on a slight slope. He told us all the bits about where the facilities where and so on, and even helped us to move our trailer off the road into position.

The site as a whole is absolutely beautifully kept, all clean and manicured, the toilets and showers (which are free and plenty hot enough) where clean, as was the dish-washing area (apart from the first night, where some lovely person had left a sink half full of their left-overs from dinner). There is a small play area for kids that also includes a brick-built barbecue that my younger kids made good use of (the play area, not the bbq!).

The only thing I wasn't over keen on was that there was a ban on outdoor games in the actual camping area, all games being restricted to the play area, meaning that if you have little ones, they couldn't play within sight of the tent. I understand that this might make things more peaceful for those who don't have kids, but it was a definite inconvenience for those who do.

Overall, this is a really excellent site, with staff who really go the extra mile, and I'd definitely go back for a longer stay.

 Experienced a camping trip to Newhaven Caravan & Camping Park with our family. Would definitely not return ever! The staff are miserable and unhelpful. The two play areas need updating. There is no dog walking area and it is quite far to walk offsite to the nearest one. Waited half an hour once we got there for someone to return to book us in. Will not return!

 Stayed with a large group at Newhaven for a bike event nearby. Camp site was immaculate, clean and tidy. Staff were very helpful and attentive to things like bins and especially so for unknown / unauthorised vehicles. Even though we stayed up late, there were no noise complaints. Shop on site sells useful bits n bobs. I really can't fault it.

We will be going back many more times hopefully.

Well done 

Date of Visit: June 2017 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Dave 418 38 reviews from this member

 We decided to stay on this site because it was near to the walks we wanted to do, Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail.

We were pitched on the bottom field and I assumed this to be the touring field for caravans tents and motorhomes. The pitch we were given was gravel next to the toilet block. There are two taps marked motorhome water next to the pitches we were on. Unfortunately this is were motorhome facilities stopped. There is no drive over drain and we were told we could use the elsan point to drain our water.

The toilet block has two showers each side, considering the size of the touring area this will cause a few hold ups during the busier times.

Dogs are allowed but there is no dog walk area and it is quite a walk to take dogs off site.

To end it all the elsan point in the touring area was overflowing this morning. We were directed to another elsan point by a groundsman. He knew nothing about the problem.

I thought this site was expensive for what it offered. Motorhome users have different needs to caravans.
