Good no frills location for the Peak District

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

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.

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.

not particularly motorhome friendly

Very tight turn in when arriving from Chesterfield, but had been well warned by the owner when booking so not a problem. Met by the owner who had told us on our telephone booking that he was full, but could squeeze our motorhome on the hardstanding, then move it the next day. We were very surprised on arrival to find only 2 caravans on the grass pitches and asked if we could pitch on the grass (he was obviously not full); attitude changed and he impatiently insisted we park our motorhome on the hardstanding, but could sit out on the grass if we wanted. The hardstanding was just wide enough to squeeze our van conversion hard up against the barn wall with our side door on the driveway. Nowhere to let our little dog sit out, or us, unless we walked over to the 'prohibited for motorhomes' grass pitches. Cars driving past inches from out heads (from residents of the property and various lived in caravans on the farm, and their visitors) until gone 11pm and noise from one of the caravans (admittedly not the owner's fault) meant this was not as peaceful as hoped. Access to footpaths, a country park with lakes and nearby Chesterfield are excellent. A second motorhome arrived and reversed onto the grass. the owner came out shouting that they could 'not park there', and told them in no uncertain terms to park on the hardstanding too. We felt most unwelcome and 'second rate' to caravaners. The price was not £6 for us (as advertised - unit and all occupants). This site cost us £11 per night, with no explanation as to why the price was almost double the advertised rate. We shall not return.

A Good little Site.

I’m at Offley Place at the moment ,the sun is out ,chickens and ducks wandering around and it’s very tranquil. As others have said , everything you need is here , the owners are all nice people and will help in anyway they can , even John is very helpful but may appear at first to be a bit grumpy and brash , this is all a joke . The facilites are adequate and could do with updating ,but at £11 a night for a 8m motorhome electric inc is a very reasonable price, we have paid much more for sites worse than this . I have spoken to all the people here at the moment and they are all happy with what is provided and the attitude of the owners and all said they would not hesitate to come back again . If you want a site with lots of rules , impeccable showers and toilets , a warden watching every move , that cost £30 a night , then this little gem is not for you ... we will be booking again in the near future .
