 Loved the site as soon as we arrived

The facilities are superb

Loved the pub

The kids are well catered for

The toilets were spot on, the showers I thought where a bit basic and it was cold in the cubicle so much so that I didn't want to get undressed but it wouldn't put me off. the summer would I've no doubt be better

 Very nice clean and tidy site. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The toilets and showers were all very clean.

The children's play area seemed very busy. Lots of the hard standing areas have hedges between them, so that you're not looking in each others widows which I liked.

It was a nice walk to Ashbourne, and the cycling in the area was great. The pub was nice too.

 Visited 1st in May this year, thought may be a nice visit with our son and his younger family,

If the weather was kinder to us the site is ideal, a pool, play park, pub on site,

This site is not cheap tho, pub meals are short on choice, expensive ta boot, showers need a revamp now, as do the toilets, it's a massive site so think there taking 's in, come on a little more investment I think.

Know its supply and demand but come on. Will take a gander round got a newer venue,

But don't bank on the weather. Spoiler all rnd when wet.

Reviewer: Tracey 1 review from this member

 Very enjoyable stay. Booking in quick and friendly. Plenty of space to pitch motorhome and gazebo.

Showers are free and there are plenty of them for use anytime of the day. Toilets are clean except after unsupervised children have used them as they don't flush after.

Didn't use the pool this time as it was very busy with children and no room to swim.

There was only one day when it didn't rain and we went out for the day. Beautiful countryside close by so plenty of things to do offsite.

There are plenty of activities for children on site but not so much for adults and older children. Other peoples children can be annoying, riding bikes up and down the road, they are not road savvy and we witnessed several times when they have passed behind moving cars or nearly ridden into one. Children near us were playing underneath the bushes behind our gazebo and making our dogs bark or they would stop near to them and just look at them which would set them off. I was constantly having to warn children not to touch them as I don't know how they would react with strangers.

On the plus side the park is peaceful at night (no noisy parties) and we managed to sleep in until 10:30 most mornings.

We were worried that the electric hook up might trip out with all our cooking equipment and we were very pleased that it did not, even once.

The park has an excellent range of services for rubbish, waste water, washing up and an on site shop which surprisingly has a lot of camping accessories as well as groceries.

Weather was disappointing as it rained most days and nights, we always seem to get bad weather when going away in the school holidays!. Where we were located a lot of wasps were an issue. They would come into the gazebo when cooking and eating and there were a lot around our car each time we tried to go out. Luckily I had a bottle of Avon's, skin so soft, I sprayed it over the car and around doorways and it seemed to keep them away.

Nice to see wild rabbits nearby.

 A very friendly site with exceptional staff. It was pleasantness and professionalism bring the word go. Well done staff.

The site was clean and comfortable. The shop was well stocked and prices reasonable.

Everyone we met, staff and visitors, seemed to be enjoying the site.

Reviewer: Djjeff 1 review from this member

 Liked friendly atmosphere. Field 5 big pitches other parts of site very small pitches.

Site poorly maintained no thought to drainage so even though hard standing we were flooded out.

2 grandsons. Said boring after 3 days. Park is for little children.

Facilities very dirty. Even after they had just been cleaned!

Club house very friendly but basic. Pizzas or burgers. No entertainment. Didn't like the public footpath directly behind our pitch.

 Lovely family campsite, security barriers on entrance, showers and toilets good, pub/restaurant on site serving beers and basic food, burgers pizzas, opening times could be better open Fri and Sat but closed on Sunday, which was surprising to me,

Pitch was at end of small field 172, we felt away from other campers, there is better ones!

Ashbourne about a mile away with couple of steep hills, other walks from camp as well to explore, staff friendly, playground and field for kids and also to walk dogs,

No ehu for tents, only so many for caravans/ camper vans,

 Good sized pitches, great location by the tissington trail. Pub on site was great to grab a meal when we arrived.

Walked to Mappleton from the site for a pub lunch on the Saturday and then into Ashbourne in the other direction Saturday night.

Toilets/showers were reasonable and despite the size of the site had no queues.

Good playground for the kids and an inside room we didn't use.

 Really likes Callow Top, it was peaceful, and not really many people about so early.

I would definitely stay again.

Toilets were clean, washing facilities were good.

Very nice for a relaxing break.

Reviewer: Leonpi 1 review from this member

 We found the camp site to have excellent facilities.

The camping pitch was stated as small when booking but it was a perfect size for a small family and the each pitch is separated by trees in field 1/2 which added a sense of privacy.

Swimming pool was great.

Thanks and will be booking again.
