Why stay here ...

Our CL is a peaceful site set within the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. The site itself is situated within Heritage Wood, which is a sponsored woodland, where people can dedicate a tree for any reason they choose. To mark a special event like a birth, a wedding, a birthday or perhaps in memory of a loved one. The CL is in a separate area to the dedicated trees. Please be aware that Heritage Wood is open to the public.

Both hard standing and grass pitches are available depending on the ground conditions.

Beautiful and tranquil site

This is a lovely site and I do not agree that it needs some TLC! It is a CL, those of us who love CL's don't need toilet blocks, immaculate lawns or any other club or commercial site advantages.  What we want is peace and quiet and lovely surroundings and that's what you get. The utilities - waste water, fresh water etc. are easy to use, which is not always the case on CL's. The small 0.5 acres is set in a semi-circle and each pitch is separated from its neighbour, so means privacy, which is what we prefer.  Normally we would never go on a site smaller than 1 acre and prefer to tuck ourselves away in a corner (not all of us want to be "happy campers")  but in this case the size doesn't matter.  It's great for visiting Ashbourne and lots of other lovely towns in Derbyshire and of course a great walking area. and a stroll in the lovely wood is just right before dinner.

Could be a lovely site

Site peaceful but could do with some 'upgrading' by that I don't mean toilet blocks etc. The pitches are a little muddy and could be better if grassed over properly. I see some people thinks its a 'graveyard', not so its a memorial wood with the public sponsoring trees for all sorts of reasons. If caravanning for you, is going away from home to watch TV this site will not be for you and I suggest you try somewhere else. All in all its an OK site but desperately needs some seeing to.

Extremely disappointed with the site management!

The bank holiday weekend was our first outing with our new caravan. We booked onto this site will in advance & were really looking forward to our long weekend. We were told that on arrival pull onto the site then go & check in but there was no on there. The site was full, so we phoned the owners who informed us they were on holiday but our booking was confirmed & no one could help us until the following morning. They told us that we could go & ask each caravan whether they had booked or not, which surely is their job, not ours & not a very professional approach. Safe to say that trying to find a replacement site on a Friday of a bank holiday weekend at the last minute caused a lot of stress & meant we were not able to set up until very late at the alternative site. We will not be booking on this site in future and I think the owners need to look at their management skills. I have been caravanning since I can remember & have never made a booking to arrive & be told there is no space for us!!

peace and quiet

we turned up at this site and had the pick of the 5 pitches in fact we pitched in one then decided we wanted a different one so changed, we had no problem finding the site or entering,there is no toilet or shower but this wasn't a problem for us.there are notices up telling you where to go to pay and a number you can phone if you have any problems. the site has no security and no fencing to separate you off from the the public visiting the wood. but no one bothered us or entered the site area.and those that did visit were very quiet. At night it gets very dark, there is no lighting at all. we were very temped to go for a midnight walk but I was too scared ha-ha. I'm glad we didn't take any horror DVDs, it was so quiet all you can hear are birds singing. I didn't feel like we were in a cemetery as the other review had said.

Tranquil Weekend

Peaceful, tranquil little site, set in woods. 5 places very private. Entrance gate lift up, direct from public car park, felt a lttle vunerable at night, very dark from the trees, ( glad we had the dogs). Well maintained site, wildlife on the open lake, great walks around the wood. (Shock on arrival, felt like camping in a cemetary, surrounded by dedicated tree's, later found not just for death but weddings, births, or any occasion) No TV reception. Village pub a short walk away.
