Great little CL with good public transport

Upper Hartshay Farm
Stayed for two nights and used bus route just outside site - buses to Derby, Matlock and Bakewell. Site is clean and tidy with everything you need. Check in, at electric gates, was smooth and although never saw hosts, they were always on had (text) to answer any questions/sort issues. Needed extension to reach EHU (pitch 4) and they offered one but carry one, so didn’t need. We will use this CL again!

I’ll be back

Upper Hartshay Farm
This was my first visit and won’t be the last. Fitted it in, not 100% certain what to expect, on a tour around. Once there I extended my stay. It’s great for walking, on the Amber Valley Trail no5. Bus stop outside the site can take you to Crich & back and elsewhere. I choose to walk both ways taking in the Cromford canal and Fritchley tunnel. Was a days walk to the Crich Stand memorial and back. Many other routes to check out though both short and long. Small newsagent & emergency supplies a short walk down the road. Views from the pitches are second to none, and worth booking for them alone. Lovely friendly owners.

Excellent CL!

Upper Hartshay Farm
This CL is excellent. It's spacious, clean and has wide reaching views. The owners are very friendly and helpful and when we had a bit of a problem with the timing of a funeral clashing with our time to leave the site Ruth was very understanding and allowed us to stay a few hours longer on site. Thank you Ruth! The site is close to the A38 and A610 and access is good even with our 8ft caravan. There are keypad operated electric gates on entry giving a little more peace of mind and security. The pitches are gravelled hardstanding and 3 are slightly elevated giving the views. The "facilities" area; water, waste, elsan etc, is spotlessly clean and spacious. The site is within easy striking distance of Crich, Matlock and Nottingham and we can thoroughly recommend the Black Boy Inn at Heage which for some, (sadly not us theses days!), would be within walking distance. The only ever so slight downside was the traffic noise from the A38 for the first night but we found it much quieter once the wind changed direction. Don't let this put you off though as it's a great CL to use as a base for the area and I'm sure we will return.

Perfect C.L.

Upper Hartshay Farm

Very large spacious site with generous room between each hard standing. Extensive views over open countryside. Site is maintained to a very high standard and has a security gate making it very secure. The owner lives on site and is very friendly and helpful. Lots of handy dog walks from the site with plenty of space for our very active spaniel. Being a CL there is naturally no toilet or shower but we prefer to use our own, especially in the current Covid pandemic. We came across it by chance needing to visit relatives in the area and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended, this is amongst the very top of C.L.s
