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

We Will Return

Upper Hartshay Farm
A lovely site that has stunning views, Ripley is an easy walk to with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants and plenty of walks around the area. The owner was very helpful with tips on how to reach the site and very welcoming on arrival. We were looking for a site that was not too far to drive to on a Friday afternoon after work just for the weekend and I think we have found our "go to" site and unwind for a couple of days.

SCENIC CL

Upper Hartshay Farm
A gem of a campsite, the owners Ruth and Ian are friendly and super helpful. Our second visit to this lovely CL, easy check in and good access to all the level pitches. all within walking distant to local pubs. Superb walks and good cycling routes.Again we enjoyed the SCENIC views of the countryside and nice to see Crich stand lit up at night.

Scenic CL: with great views

Upper Hartshay Farm
Spent 4 days at Upper Hartshay Farm in mid August whilst visiting friends who live in Belper. Had high winds on the first night from one of the storms, but as the site slopes down ( the hardstandings had been recently re-levelled so the pitch we were on, Pitch1 was flat), we were reasonably sheltered. The views over the valley are spectacular, and the lighthouse-like beacon on Crich Stand (the memorial to the Sherwood Foresters) on the horizon is hauntingly eerie but beautiful. Our friends came and collected us every day (thanks to Ruth for opening the security gates for them each time!), so we didn't try any of the public transport links. However, there are bus stops nearby. Meal on our last night at the Black Boy pub was excellent, with a good selection of ales as well. Facilities on site are well laid out, and were close to us on Pitch 1. Overall an excellent CL, which we will no doubt use again next year when visiting our friends. Thanks Ruth. C & C
