 Lovely campsite, run by nice people, couldn't fault this site at all,

Nice toilets and shower block, , good hardstanding pitch, with tap,

There is a chip shop 5mins away, 3 pubs within a mile but only 1 was open red lion due to covid, at waterfall.

Would recommend this site shall be returning in the future

 A beautifully manicured site, fully serviced gravel hardstandings and young trees to separate pitches. Good shower and toilet facilities for those that need them.

Loads of walks from the site and two minutes cycle from the Manifold Trail gives plenty of activity options. Security second to none with anpr operated entry barrier to property and keypad controlled gate access to site itself.

Large dog run for our four legged friends.

One of the best fish &chip shops right in the village along with a pub and shop make this an easy place to stay, two other pubs within half an hours uphill walk provide a challenge before reward!

 Just had a three night break at Crowtrees. Superb little site!

Although originally a Caravan Club CL, whilst these 5 pitches are still discreet from the rest of the site, there are now another 15 pitches beyond them, all new for 2018. All pitches have their own hook-up. Water and drainage. There is a small toilet block - also looks new and absolutely spotless, as well as a laundry and washing up sink. There is a small information shed, where free range eggs appear most mornings - great at 2 a dozen!

The site is protected by an electronic barrier that works on number plate recognition, as well as an access gate further down the drive, which has a coded padlock. We were greeted there by Craig on arrival and pointed in the direction of the pitches. There were already four units on this part of the site. The pitches, which are a generous size, overlook fields and hills in the distance - very pleasant. Be aware that there are no facilities for children.

There is a bus stop just outside the site driveway, with 6 buses each way (Ashbourne to Leek) on weekdays. 3 on Saturdays.

The village now only has one pub -the Olde Crown Hotel. It does do meals but we didn't sample them. There is a fish & chip shop within walking distance of the site with some sit-in tables.

Around and about there are lots of walking opportunities - especially the Manifold Trail. Bikes can also be hired.

Leek is a nice little town with a good selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs, as well as two smaller supermarkets and a large Morrisosns. Parking can be a bit of a problem at busy times.

Beyond the town there are Rudyard Lake and Tittesworth Reservoir to walk round and enjoy. Both have tea rooms. There is also a small steam railway at Rudyard - most delightful!

In the other direction down the A523, don't forget Ashbourne, Dove Dale and Ilam.

All in all a lovely little site, well situated for the Peak District and Stafforsdhire Morelands. We will definitely be coming back next year!

 This was our first adventure with our recently purchased van so we stayed fairly local to our home (15 miles). Been through this area many times but never stayed. What a lovely spot!

Arrived late on Friday night and set up without being hassled for fees up front just a cheery 'sort it out tomorrow'. Great hardstanding with hook up and water/waste all to hand. Dog friendly. Showers and toilets spotless. Excellent value for money at 15 a night. Thanks

 We've driven past this site many times over the years and always said we must try it. Well we have now and it's lovely. Traditional CL with good size pitches and each has its own water and grey waste disposal point. Alongside the site has now been extended with a further 15/16 pitches. Lovely small toilet block with lashings of hot water. It even has a dog/bike wash. Superb area for walking right from the site. Also cycling with Manifold trail just down the road. We did that on our tandem but other routes in the area are quite hilly. The only blot on the landscape is the nearby tarmac quarry and its huge tower building. There is some noise but it is only in the background and did not detract from the site. Helpful and friendly owners who are regularly around tending the site or the horses in the adjacent fields. We shall definitely be visiting again

 This is a great little site, had a very warm welcome on arrival testing out a new pitch. The site is just on the edge of Waterhouses village. Fantastic new toilet and shower block first class!. Easy access onto the pitches which are fully serviced. Great facilities with washer and dryer available and fresh eggs to purchase. Easy quick walk to a great chip shop and pub in the village. Also easy access to bike tracks into the peaks.

There are 6 pitches in total which are hard standing with great outlook overlooking fields.

You do hear some traffic noise and the occasional blast of a horn from the local quarry works but this does not spoil your stay.

I would highly recommend a visit as no doubt we will probably revisit. Thanks for a warm welcome and friendly stay.

 Just back from this great wee site, a real bargain for a fully serviced pitch in lovely surroundings. We visited this area in order to visit Alton Towers for a few days with teenagers, it was ideal for my kids.

Local shop has all the basics and the chippy provided a huge dinner one evening, all within a short walking distance.

As mentioned previously the toilet area is a little uncared for but for the low pitch fee it's bearable. You will need to take your own soap, toilet roll and hand towel or just use your caravan's facilities.

Reviewer: Bowyer 20 reviews from this member

 Our first outing of the year was at this lovely little site that is about a mile from the Manifold trail. The little village of Waterhouse has pubs, chippy and shop; all within walking distance. The pitch we used (road side) was flat; others had a small slope. Traffic was heard, at times, however nothing to spoil our time at this site. There is also a factory near by though nothing of it was heard. Good pot washing area; however I would have liked a separate toilet which was incorporated within the shower wet room; also within was the wash hand basin. Only one critisism is the quality of the toilet block area as a whole; however, for 12. 50 all-inclusive of electicity, this site is value for money and well worth a visit.

Reviewer: Bush56 4 reviews from this member

 Hard standings made fixing the awning a bit tricky, but can see why they're needed. Surrounding grassed areas were beautifully maintained. Great that each pitch has own water and electric supply. Service point lights are possibly a little too bright at night. Some road noise at peak times, and gentle hum of the cement works, but this was outweighed by the location of the site, near to walks and trails, and the beauty of the scenery. A separate toilet may be good as it was very wet being in with the open shower. Shower area could do with some maintenance as it's looking a bit tired. Not bothered by anyone, or unnecessary rules, and a friendly greeting when paying. Don't miss the Churnet Valley Trail from Oakamoor to Denstone - fantastic!

Reviewer: Percysybil 2 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2013 and had the benefit of some cracking weather.

The site is spotlessly clean and the pitches, all of which are hardstanding, are roomy enough to accommodate your van, car and full-size awning.

Excellent chippy, pub and local store (which seems to stock just about everything!) are all within a 5 minute walk.

EHU, drinking water and grey-waste at each pitch which for 12 per night is an absolute bargain.

Wet room, loo and washing facilities are clean and easily accessed from the pitches.

Dogs welcome at no extra cost and owners are friendly and welcoming.

Easy access to the site with no troublesome hazards to negotiate, whatever the size of your outfit.

Definitely one for the favourites list.
