Peaceful haven in stunning surroundings

The Chestnuts
Enjoyed a 2 night weekend break at The Chestnuts. Ken and Gill were welcoming and warm hosts offering a generous and well maintained lawned site with recycling facilities and ample sized grass pitches. Had a nice meal at the local pub within 200m and enjoyed a pleasant walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside. An idyllic, peaceful location in the Derbyshire countryside.

Lovely site

The Chestnuts
A lovely well maintained site, located in a beautiful part of the country and perfect for our chosen destinations. Gill was warm welcoming and very helpful. The site is very generously proportioned so plenty of room for everyone. Could not fault it and would highly recommend. We stayed two nights but would definitely stay longer if we were staying longer in that part of the country.

Great little site

The Chestnuts
Newly opened site and not in the book yet so we had the site to ourselves for 3 of the 4 nights. Helpful and friendly owners. The site is quite sloping so take levelling blocks or the owner has wood you can use. Lovely views. No EHU at the moment but are hoping to have it installed. They did let us use an extension cable from their property. Lots of places to visit in the area and a great pub/restaurant just up the lane. Very quiet and peaceful, easy access to the site. We will definitely return.

Really lovely little gem of a site!

The Chestnuts
We were the only campers here on a bank holiday weekend so we felt like we struck gold! The owners Gill and Ken were very friendly and super helpful both over email and in person. The site was very well maintained and felt very secure too- with gates being closed at night. There was plenty of hand sanitiser and convenient recycling facilities. We enjoyed being able to walk over the road for a drink at the local pub, the White Hart and although we didn't have any the Sunday lunch looked delicious! We wouldn't hesitate to come back to this site, even though its only half an hour from our home! There are lovely walks around the area and Crich nearby is well worth a visit too, especially the local pub the Cliff Inn. (although currently closed due to Covid) We will see you soon! thank you for having us!
