Lovely start to the season

This was our first trip of the year and we thoroughly enjoyed the site. The shower was closed due to covid restrictions, but I had a peek and it looked clean and spacious. The loo was open and spotlessly clean. Mr and Mrs White seem very laid back indeed. There are lots of walks (including good walks for dogs) straight from the site. There is a pub about a 10 minute walk away that does food (not that we sampled it- it was rather too chilly to sit outside and eat). There are fantastic views from all pitches.

A lovely long weekend

A beautifully located site on a working farm in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside. Open fields to the rear of the site are perfect for those with dogs, or those who simply want to make the most of the countryside without the need to drive. The views are beautiful and those wanting to be visit nearby Dovedale etc. Are only a short drive away. Ashbourne with its shops, cafes etc. Are at the bottom of the hill, so you’re never too far away if you run out of any essentials. In short, it’s all as perfect as you’d need or want, if you’re looking for a quiet getaway. The site is well kept, as as the amenities. We shall definitely be returning.

A lovely August break

We stayed at New House farm for 5 nights in August 2020. Easy access directly off the A52. On arrival the site was immaculate, lawns freshly mown. By day the views across open fields are fabulous and the night sky is beautiful in clear weather. Guest toilet and shower facilities are simple but kept spotless, regularly cleaned and always well stocked with paper, soap, disinfectant and sanitizer. Both Mr and Mrs White were welcoming, friendly and chatty. Ideal base for exploring the south Peak District, the Tissington trail, Carsington Water, Dovedale etc. Some lovely places to eat nearby. Overall an extremely enjoyable stay and a site that we would unreservedly recommend and return to.

Weekend Break

A weekend stay here (July 2020) as we wanted somewhere not to far from home, with hardstanding and EHU. (No rallies at present, which are our usual weekend venue.) For us this was an ideal location, we did several walks without having to use the car to get anywhere. The views are great but it can be windy as you are on an open hillside. Pitches would benefit from a little TLC, but they are hardstanding (there are six to chose from). You will need leveling blocks as the pitches do slope. There is a toilet and shower but we did not use them, but they looked clean, generally use what we have in the caravan. If you do bump into the farmer he is very chatty and is a caravaner himself. If you have an 8ft wide van you will need to be very careful with the CL entrance over the cattle grid as there are fences on both sides and the first bend on the site, the large bush needs trimming! It is a very quiet site, although you might have a large herd cows in the surrounding fields, but they did not distub us. I am sure we will be back as this site suited us very well.

Happy Caravaners

Spent 4 nights in August at this site. Although it is off the main road there was no road noise, it is a very peaceful and organised , pitches semi hardstanding and grass kept short. It has lovely views too We have been caravanning since 1985 so have stayed on many CL's and this one we would be more than happy to stay on again. If you are looking for all the facilities of modern club sites then maybe a CL site isn't for you. This CL suited us just fine and we can be hard to please.
