Perfect position for visiting Buxton and Bakewell

Just returned from two nights at this site. This is a quiet low key CL with fantastic views of the Peaks. Brilliant value as the nightly fee of £12 included electric hook up. A good location for driving into Buxton or Bakewell. The owner was friendly and helpful . If your a bit fussy you might like the grass cut shorter but the views over the hills make up for damp feet. Good parking for motorhomes as you drive into Buxton in the coach park. Easy to get into if you go in the morning and right at the end of the shopping area. Its about £5 for 4 hours but saves the hassle of finding somewhere in the town. A good CL that we will be returning to.

Enjoyable bank holiday break

Stayed for three nights over the first May Day bank holiday, decided on this site as it was very near the Monsal bike trail, pitches are hard standing and almost level so no problem, one easy to get to fresh water tap, grey waste emptying point, no problem, Elsan point no problem, some slight noise from the calf shed that is situated to the rear of the pitches, but it is a working farm after all, so not a problem.uninterrupted views, phone and tv signal good, friendly owners just let you get on with your stay. Can we recommend this site Yes without hesitation

Didn’t see a soul and the smell of calves was shocking.

The grass was about 8 inches long and unkept. The waste bins stunk. Behind vans were barbs housing calves who stunk and bawled every morning. Tractors moving early morning behind vans . One van is permanently there , the guy is a lorry driver. Didn’t see a single person the whole 4 days. Could be lovely but needs a good sort out . On the site and bin and waste area .

Outstanding views, Peace and Quiet

A fantastic 3 days spent in a fantastic peaceful location. Yes the facilities are basic and the owners leave you alone (great in my book!) The location for walking and cycling is great, Buxton just a few miles away for any extras you may need, for the relaxing Peak District visit superb! Would certainly return with our 3 dogs. Thanks
