A perfect hideaway

One of the most well thought out CLs we have stayed at, with the fixtures and fittings artfully blended in to the stunning surroundings. Thoughtful touches, such as the stack of wood blocks, made setting up much easier. The site was gorgeous, tucked away down the long drive and so peaceful. Owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Although the location is a gorgeous hideaway on the peaks, it was also very convenient for visits to local attractions and towns. There are also some lovely restaurants and pubs in the surrounding area - as well as the picturesque village of Monyash. We can’t recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be visiting again.

Just as good as they get.

A proper CL! Very well kept field, four well spaced and marked pitches on one side of the field, number five tucked into a corner on the other side. Looked tempting, but a bit wet (soggy April) when we arrived so we stuck to the higher side of the CL. No over booking here. One of the best bin and disposal areas I have seen. Warm welcome. It's all good, and, deep joy, it's Adult Only, so no footballs flying about. We will be returning.

Nice CL.......but those flies...............

As others have said, this is a really nice CL. Very quiet and good views. The slopes shouldn't be an issue to an experienced caravanner. Dog walking was something we didn't have a problem with, in general the cows were well away from the site entrance and it was ok to walk down the access lane. If the cows were hanging about around the site gate i just waited a few moments for them to clear off. My only gripe, and this isn't the owners fault, was the flies ! There were loads of them and if they got into the van they did leave a mess on the surfaces and windows. Anything in the awning too had to be wiped down regularly. When i got home it took quite a while to wash all the "fly poo" off the car and van. This would probably be my reason for not going back.

what a wonderful find

we spent a week at this lovely site and could not find a fault with it. Yes it slopes but there a plenty of blocks available if required. Surely CL users have no problems with cattle grids and the like - that is part of the attraction! Jo and Tom could not have been more helpful and welcoming, the pitches are set out so that each one has a view across the landscape .The grass is well maintained and a mower with a grass box is used so you don't have to deal with cuttings on your caravan floor! A lot of work has been put in to this site by its young owners who deserve to succeed. We will definately be back!

Dog walking issue

The site is stated as having a dog walk which it doesn't. You can take them in to the adjacent fields but they have livestock in them. I don't approve of dogs doing there business near the caravans even though most owners pick up. There is an area with long grass which we thought was for dogs but the owner is using it for animal feed so he asked us to keep off it and it's right next to the caravans. The site is very peaceful but the views are obscured by trees. There is 2 cattle grids, the one on entering the CL has quite a ridge so care is needed. Not sure if we would go again because we usually use site with a proper dog walk.
