among the owls

Heritage Wood
First time here. Very helpful admin, when we were booking. We visited in February when a complete week of rain was forecast. The site was peaceful despite visitors to the wood. The pitches were great even with all the rain, not water logged, especially as we have two dogs that love the mud. I would love to come back when the trees and the planting are in bloom, especially on a sunny day, the site will be beautiful. Every evening the owls kept us company, and we were woken by the chatting of the small birds. We were visited by ducks, pheasants and geese. Ashbourne has a Sainsburys for those forgotten items and Birds bakery does a great cream cake. If you are a walker, take a visit along the Wolfscope trail, well worth a look. The village of Hartington has a great tea/farm shop- the one near the toilets, and these a pub for those that like a tipple. My only negative comment is, that we were in a 8m motorhome, and that there was little road to turn around on, to get out. Despite having an empty bay next door, I hadn't got enough swing to avoid the grass entirely. I probably would have been better reversing all the way back to the car park and turning around there. On a dry day, this wouldn't have been an issue as, the rain had caused the grass to become water logged, and I didn't want to damage the grass, or get stuck. We had a lovely time, despite bad weather. Thank you Heritage wood. We would definitely recommend you, for those wanting a little peace and tranquility.

My last visit here was 33 years ago!

Heritage Wood
The last time I stopped at Heritage Wood was 33 years ago, shortly after they first opened! Boy oh boy have those sapling trees of 33 years ago grown into magnificent trees and as for the number of dedicated trees, there are now something like 7,000 of them with many of them having beautiful and very touching tributes on plaques next to them. This isn't a morbid place, but an enlightening location where you can easily get lost in your deeper soul searching inner thoughts. Unfortunately the site itself is a little bit tired most especially the foul water disposal point, however with each pitch having water and an immediately adjacent EHU we were more than happy with our lot.

Very peaceful, very dark

Heritage Wood
This is a small site, with the 5 pitches in a line. A couple feel a bit close together. However, each pitch is separated by trees. Each has its own water tap which is great. No recycling facilities, which felt a bit strange. The site was easy to find. The site is surrounded by the memorial forest and is surprisingly sheltered - we were there during recent gales. Only one pitch is really a hard standing and the grass pitches get very soft. We initially parked our motorhome with the front wheels on the gravel area along the front of the pitches, but later, as the rain continued, parked parallel to our pitch, entirely on the gravel. The memorial forest is very interesting - with both well established and new areas of planting. Unfortunately there was confusion with our booking. We had a confirmatory e mail for our 4 night booking. We called at the Business Park first (it was raining) rather than going straight to the site, and discovered that although they had the email info our booking had not been put in the site book - and they only had a space for us for three nights! The staff were very apologetic, and these things do happen. We had a pleasant stay and would return if int he area.

Secluded little spot

Heritage Wood
We spent 3 nights at this woodland site. It is set among woodland and is shady and enclosed by trees. It's a good flat site, easy to access and the pitches are nicely spaced out. It is mainly grass and we had constant rain while we were there, but luckily managed to get off the pitch ok. There is public access through the site which didn't worry us but might be a consideration for others. A good spot to explore locally and a helpful sign on the site gives some good ideas of where to visit. Personally I think this is a good site for a short stay or stopover. All in all a good value for money site.
