First time caravaners . I have to say we only live 13 miles away from this site we never knew it existed. We had a fab few days very peaceful and tranquil heritage wood is amazing. We visited lakeside view and have booked for next year . We will definitely be visiting heritage wood lots of times more as local for a weekend away and is so relaxing. Have contacted the office a few times and they are so friendly and helpful . Can highly recommend

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.

Beautiful and tranquil site

Heritage Wood
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.
