Good campsite

Lovely campsite, well kept and quiet. Wonderful to have full facilities at each pitch, water electricity and drainage. The only downside was that the TV reception was stated as being ‘good’ when it was actually nonexistent. Other campers on site said they didn’t get a reception either. When approaching its best to come in from the B5056 and not through Alport as the road is very winding and not suitable for caravans

Just what was needed!

This site in spite of being on a working farm is so quiet only the occasional car going up / down the lane and the odd tractor.It is very well situated for access to Bakewell ,Matlock , Matlock Bath Cromford and various other places of interest .If you are prepared to walk there is a lovely walk from the site down into Lathkill Dale, you can make it as long or short as you wish but be prepared for hills after all this is Derbyshire. the site is well kept with grass cut regularly. Only a couple of points 1. there are some ruts in grass where the electrics/water supply have been put in so be careful not to trip or twist an ankle , 2. why is it more expensive to stay for less than a week £14 a night if you stay 7 nights or more or £ 16 a night for less than 7 nights.I really can't see what difference it makes how long your stay is.

Fabulous Site

Our first visit to Broadmeadow but it won't be the last! Great little site, serviced pitches, level hard standings, easy access (the last 300-400 meters of road is very narrow but not a problem) great location for local villages and walks straight from the site, good pubs in Youlgreave. Very quiet and set in stunning countryside. Has the advantage too that if you have non caravaning friends or relatives who would like to stop with you there are 4 very nice looking camping pods on site with all facilities, see the web site, be great for our kids and grand kids! Great value at £13 to £15 per night for a serviced pitch, goes onto our list of favorites!

May Road Trip

The May Road Trip is now on its homeward leg - lovely site in Derbyshire with serviced pitches, hardstanding for the caravan but grass alongside, spacious pitches. Directions good, the last few hundred yards is uphill on single track road so care needed - entrance to site excellent and well marked. Stone driveway to pitches. Useful information on board. Lovely scenery, quiet - it's a working farm so occasional lorry movements. Three pubs in the village but didn't manage to get parked so can't comment on the food. Quite limited dog walking apart from using the roads. We would be happy to visit again if we were in the area - ideal situation for visiting Matlock, Bakewell, Buxton.

Terrific CL in a Terrific area

Great site with serviced pitches, views to either side and nice green area in front of pitches. Lovely area for walking and pretty surrounding villages, plus near to Chatsworth house and grounds and even nearer to Haddon hall where you can get 2 for 1 entry if you show your club card, a saving of £15+ Good food available in Youlgrave at either the Farmyard Inn or the Bull inn Hotel. Would definitely use this site again, even with non caravanning family as the Walkers also own Peak Pods next door.
