Not the best

Offley Place
Picture of site is a bit misleading, photo has been taken from a favourable angle; as shown in the photo the site is a small strip of grass, with minimal space between pitches. The hardstanding is either in front of a stone barn or stone wall. Unless you are sited on the end (first pitch) there are no views. Agree with other reviews, it is a tight entrance, however, if you give it a wide berth it is manageable. If your vehicle is quite wide I would check with owners first before booking. On reaching top of drive way, the first thing you come across is old farm machinery which obviously has not been used in a long time, did not get the impression during our 2 night stay that it was a working farm. The site is also used for storage of caravans. I would not choose this site if you are looking for a somewhere to sit and relax, not that type of site. We were just outside the site next to stone wall and were lucky to have a nice view, however, not the best site and would not return. Our electric hook up was dangling from the telegraph pole, not exactly ideal or totally safe. The Elsan point is disgusting, dirty and not a pleasant experience, the worse we have come across. Did not use the toilet, however, did have one shower which was adequate. Ignore price of £8, charge is now £15 per night. We only chose this site as visiting relatives in Chesterfield and was within walking distance of Linacre Reservoir. Had tried other sites within our price range, however, they were fully booked.

Value For Money

Offley Place
Yes the main entrance and entrance to where caravans are pitched are ‘tight’ but we were warned about this in booking so we’ll have prepared. The pitches for the caravans are a little close together but we had ample room when we visited. Ingrid the owner likes to keep the grass areas to one end solely for small caravans and not motorhomes as it can get boggy and difficult for the motorhomes. Yes there are things that could be done to improve this site, there are some amazing views from the fields but these are not used for the vans. It is a shame but it wouldn’t put us off using this site again as £12 a night is good value for money. It was quiet, we had water and electricity, didn’t use on site loo or shower used ours in van. We had amazing weather and met nice people. Owner Ingrid me a really really nice and friendly.

Good no frills location for the Peak District

Offley Place
Basic grass pitch on a quiet site behind a barn. EHU, Stand pie and chemical waste point. Not much more you need from a CL site. Owners never troubled us and we had to knock on door to pay when leaving. Great location for Bakewell, Eyam and Chesterfield.

Disappointing

Offley Place
Having read previous reviews and looked at the photos we were looking forward to 5 days away in our caravan. The entrance was very difficult to negotiate from Chesterfield. The marked pitches were close together and, apart from the first grass pitch there were NO views, as suggested in the photos, some of which were taken from the owner's garden. The narrow strip of grass was very wet and, as others have mentioned, we had to park our car close to the barn. As this was our only view we were not impressed. The overhanging trees meant that the heavy rain we experienced was deafening on our roof and several twigs fell on the roof which, hopefully have not dented it. We were worried about the floor of the washroom/toilet collapsing as it was very spongy. One of the worst cls we have experienced in 35 years of owning a caravan.

Not as expected.

Offley Place
As previously stated very tight turn between stone pillars to access site. If you have a larger van you will need a mover to site your van as the pitches are very restricted. The pitches are under oak trees which ensures a steady bombardment of acorns at this time of year plus drips after rainfall. We were told to not park next to the van as the grass was too wet! Once sited the outlook is onto a long stone wall of a barn and not the great views that the photos promise. Toilet/shower was very tired with a broken toilet seat and a very spongy floor that feels unsafe. The shower gave lots of hot water but the flooring under the lino, around the toilet, looked very wet after use. The vans were sited close to each other which meant that we were woken each morning by the couple in the van next to us getting up at 6am and putting their bedding away! The site is relatively cheap, but again not the £6 on the advert. We also will not return.
