We've had a 10 year gap between visits to this site, not for any bad reasons!

Site has greatly improved lots of walks from doorstep and very handy for Ashbourne where there's a couple of good chip shops on the marketplace!

Very child friendly on site and a good base for plenty of activities!

Will be going back and wont wait another 10 years for our return visit!

This site is well located just outside Ashbourne, we visited Dovedale and Critch Tram Museum during our stay and neither were far away.

The site consists of 3 main fields. The first is closest to the main road and is mainly hardstanding pitches. The sole toilet block, washing up area and laundry room are also in this field. High boundary hedges mean this field has limited views of the countryside. The second field is also hardstandings and overlooks the playground field and countryside beyond. There is a night loo in the playing field - a garden shed with light, loo and sink with cold water tap. The third field is all grass and being furthest from the road is also nice and quiet.

We booked last minute for half term and the main site was full, but we were offered an overspill pitch. The overspill area is a fourth field beyond the camping field. There are just two mowed grass pitches (with EHU) in a flower meadow. This was the nicest part of the site (only suitable for tents really). So private having this field to ourselves with lovely views!

The site is relatively large and set in beautiful surroundings. It is, however, spoilt by dog owners allowing their dogs to bark 24/7 and taking them for walks around the site to pee on the tent pitches and by people BBQing decaying corpse, encouraged by site management who sell it. Upon arrival I asked to pitch away from dogs, but was shown to a pitch right opposite three loud barkers. The site WiFi did not work, the usual CCC WiFi card was not accepted and no refund was issued. I did not have to queue to use the showers, but the laundrette and washing lines were so busy, that I had no chance of using them.

Thursday 15th September 2016 5. 30am - 6. 15am almost continual dog barking. Friday 16th September 2am, 3. 10 am and 6. 50am dog barking.

Accessibility: I noted that, at Ashbourne, on a leaflet advertising a camping cabin and on CCC's website, disabled people were referred to as less able which is just insulting.

As for the local area, I went to Dove Dale, which was full of selfish, bloodthirsty dog owners (some of whom were with numerous dogs), proudly ignoring the signs asking them to keep dogs on a lead, despite the obvious presence of sheep and children who were on a school trip.

I have no intentions of ever returning or of renewing my CCC membership, as I do not consider disabled people to be less able than people who are not yet disabled.

Warm welcome at reception on our arrival, and we were promptly shown to our pitch which we had booked 2 months earlier. We were put at the bottom of the bottom field, overlooking a wild area which was pretty. We had booked a jumbo pitch as we were staying for 5 days and had taken our 9 x 3 tent for the 5 of us. Pitch was bit muddy, and pretty lumpy. Despite booking well in advance and paying for a jumbo pitch (177. 50 & we are members) our tent pretty much reached the pitch end to end and there was no space for a windbreak. Unfortunately we were also next to a noisy metal gate on the dog walking route & on the first night this was in use until 10. 30, and started at the back of seven the following morning. Given that my kids are young, this was not ideal. I also had paid what I felt was a premium to stay at a club site, as generally the noise volume is quieter, but this was not the case here. Folk were making no attempt to be quiet, and the music being played on both Friday and Saturday nights until fairly late was loud enough that I was glad I had taken ear plugs with me. Fortunately the wild area next us was used for overflow on Saturday night and the gate was left open, and it remained that way for the rest of our visit, so we were not disturbed further by this. Drinking water for the bottom field is at the top of the field and this area was a bit muddy when we arrived as there had been some rain. It could do with having more concrete poured in this area. There is no bin area here, you have to go right to the top field. There is one toilet and sink in a wooden hut between the middle and bottom field, where the kids play area is. As the site was really busy, this was frequently occupied, and also ran out of toilet paper when on of our party was having a number 2 :( The main block offers 3 sinks for washing dishes and a laundry area with 3 washing machines which we did not use. These seemed sufficient as there were no queues. The ladies toilet area had I think 6 or 7 toilet cubicles and only 3 showers in which the water temperature fluctuated quite a bit, occasionally getting uncomfortably hot. There were no private sink areas for having a stand up wash which was a real bind if the showers were busy. The whole site was scrupulously clean, and the staff were lovely. It is fairly close to Ashbourne where there are plenty shops, and some takeaways (excellent chippy) but not within walking distance of the site. Nor are there any pubs within walking distance. Beautiful area, but I felt a bit robbed. We felt the facilities did not merit the cost and the site is more geared toward the caravans and tourers who have a lot of their own facilities. When going back to the area we will be looking for another site which is better value

Spent 3 nights here and had a comfortable stay. The road noise is quite loud when in the top field where we were. Good facilities and kept clean.

The shop sells basic supplies and Calor Gas (cash only for gas, 22 for 7Kg) however beware the opening times as it is not manned all the time.

Great for families and people with dogs.

Stayed here for may bank holiday 2 adults and 2 children and dog.

Easy to find quick friendly check in and taken to our pitch by the warden.

Pitches are hardstanding and level with plenty of space between pitches.

Toilet and shower block is modern and clean, recycling etc to hand.

Nice dog walk and small shop for essentials.

Small play area for the kids.

Good Base for visiting local attractions but you will need to use your vehicle as the next town is a short drive away.

We enjoyed our stay it is a well run site and quiet at night but you can hear the traffic from the main road but it's definitely not enough to bother you.
