Nice Site

Stayed 8 nights in June 2018. Nice quiet site adjacent to a working farm. No farm noise or smells. Site well laid out, 7 hardstanding with electric all with views, area of grass well cut, chemical toilet disposal 13 steps from end of site- better than looking at it I think!! Electric outlet for our pitch (nearest entrance) didn't work as RCCB faulty but standard cable could reach next double outlet along. No TV reception so watched a few DVDs. Owner can be elusive but very friendly. public footpath passes site Monsal trail in one direction. Had several visits from a pair of woodpeckers looking for dinner on the gate in centre of the site. Access to farm lane and site ok but cross roads and A 6 junctions not great visibility. Overall enjoyed site and would happily return

No television!

The previous reviews never mentioned the television reception. We couldn't get anything and had to rely on our DVD collection. It says that the reception is good so I don't know when the reception fell away. It was easy to find but the photos are a bit old as the site is showing its age. The views are stunning and although we had a night of high winds the caravan never moved it was just noisy. Because of the TV reception we wouldn't come here again.

Comment from the Club:

Many thanks for your review. The CL owner has been in touch as since your visit they have had an Electrician visit and have had Television connections installed on each of the pitches so this will no longer be an issue for anyone staying on their site. We hope this helps and that you will visit again soon.

Did I mention the view?

I won't mention the view because it hasn't changed, lovely when the cloud doesn't obscure it. The site is reasonably well looked after, access in is OK for a twin axle, 24' caravan but out needs care and constant checking as it's a bit tight. The elsan disposal is away from the field and could do with some maintenance, as someone else has commented it would be nice to see the owners on site. We were there for several days and didn't see anyone, paid during the week as I've learned to either pay in advance or asap after arrival to ensure a quick getaway on the day of departure. Electric tripped a whilst we were there and another member left early because his kept tripping. At the time of our visit the supply was 10amp but the owners called out the electrician to check it all and I believe it is going to be upgraded to 16amp.

Lovely site well located

Stayed on this site for 6 nights over the New Year. We had a choice of hardstanding pitches all with good access. Great views over the hills of the Peak District. Lots of walks direct from the site. Convenient for shops in Buxton or Bakewell.
