A very peaceful site

This was the second weekend after lock down and a much needed break. We found the new owners very welcoming and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was useful having the option of hard standing or field pitch due to the weather locally. The surroundings are very tranquil and safe for families; a variety of walking options available and we made use of these. The Midshires Path passes alongside the site and provides a 40 minute walk into Buxton. The facilities were very clean and cleaned every day. We enjoyed watching the horses being taken to and from their liveries. Also, the resident cockerel(s) and their broods of chickens were very entertaining! We would definitely stay again when in this part of the country.

Easy to understand why reviews are mixed

The site has a field for 5 caravans and a hardstanding which can take several more. We found the field great if there are four or less caravans (and deserving five stars). The site has been remodelled at some point, and I suspect pitches are now well clear of the waterlogged areas of the earliest reviews. One plot is distinct from the others and probably the one to try and get, while the others suffer when the fifth caravan or motorhome squeezes in. In addition, the gate is adjacent to a corner and the first pitch is very squeezed between the track and the hedge. The shower and toilet are in the same room. Hence, cannot be used independently. Add the units on the hardstanding to those in the field, and queues quickly developed. There were at least 7 units on several of the nights across both the field and the hardstanding. Always remember to take your own toilet paper, because the supply is erratic, and we also got the impression that they were not cleaned during our week. We got the impression the equestrian centre was no longer operating, but some individuals were keeping there own horses in the fields. So it was very quiet.

Pleasant CL

Just returned from a 2 night break here. Booked on the hardstanding but as the weather seemed ok spent the second night on the grassed pitch as it is much more scenic. The hard standing is not the prettiest! Toilets were fine and the shower looked ok although we didn’t use it. It’s an equestrian centre and there is a lot of horse activity and some holiday lets. We did not meet Steve but his son showed us all the facilities. We will visit here again although there isn’t really anywhere to walk to from the site but Buxton is a short drive away

One of our top choices...

Owner Steve set the tone with his relaxed and friendly welcome to what has proved to be one of our top choices for a CL site. Loo and shower of a high standard but the pitches were also set in an area of amazing local scenery. As both dog owners and motorhome owners we really pleased to learn that the well marked Mid Shires Way can be picked up just outside the entrance to the site - we got into the centre of Buxton using it in around 50 minutes. Excellent location for visiting Buxton and the North Peaks/Tissington Trail area.
