Gem of a site

We recently stayed here for four nights and agree with other reviewers that John is quite a character. The main pitches are opposite the barn and whilst we were deciding which pitch to choose John offered us an upgrade to the deluxe pitch! This was located down a small track through a gate and turned out to e a huge field all to ourselves with panoramic views over the gorgeous surrounding countryside with a view of Chesterfield and its crooked church spire. We have a collie dog who was delighted with all the space to run around in. As mentioned by other reviewers the toilet/shower area needs updating, but is perfectly adequate and always clean. The farm has lots of animals -Welsh Cobs, sheep, geese, chickens and a very handsome rooster. We spent quite some time watching a foal running in the adjacent field with its mother. There was a badger set at the bottom of the field and we caught.a glimpse of one late one night. The area is extremely quiet and peaceful with a bus stop right outside the site and a return to Chesterfield cost around £3.30. Chesterfield is well worth a visit. It has a church with a twisted spire and a great market several days a week. Several coffee shops etc. Plenty of walks around including Linacre Reservoirs with all the wildlife associated. All in all a great site and we will definitely be back again. Really good value at £11 per night.

The views make it!

Just returned from a short weekend break here 2 nights of relaxing bliss. The views are amazing, and free roaming chickens and ducks along with a field of horses and baby foals really add to the country feel of the place. We paid £11 a night which is a fair price for a pitch, 2 adults, electricity and an awning. The bathroom facilities are basic and could do with a touch up but were fine for the short stay. We rode our bikes in to Chesterfield which is around 3 miles away, there are also regilar buses that stop outside the CL. The owner is a character, seemed helpful and the other campers were all returners and i think we will return too!

Travel monkys

This was our second stop on our year uk tour. We have come from an expensive site so was unsure what to expect for our £10 bargin per night. The site is small but beautiful and has a feel of France. Surrounded by absolutely amazing walks and an abundance of wildlife, you may even see a badger! not to mention the Welsh pony's on site hen's and ducks. The facilities aren't top of the range but you get a hot shower for as long as you want...what more do you need really? Matlock and Bakewell are a must visit. Reservoir nearby but we preferred the walk around Holmebrook valley park, Free range eggs just up the road on the left. The owner is pleasant and a character...luckily for us we could stay extra nights as our van broke down! A lovely place to stay and we will definitely be back im sure. 5* We aim for all our sites to be £10 per night for the year so please follow us on facebook "travel monkey's" if you are looking for the same ❤

Will never go again

I have been using CLs since 1987 and always got on with the owners, however I have never been spoken to so rudely as the owner of this CL did. I saw the £6 fee in the book and expected to pay a bit more as the book is one year old, but he told me that the price was £10. Surprised by the 66% increase I politely asked if it had gone up, he then launched a shouting rant which took me by surprise. He claimed that a van is £6 and each person is £1 each and then electricity is an extra £2. The information here says that extra people are £1 each not the couple with the van and there is no mention of an extra fee for electricity. I will never stay at this place again. He is deliberately trying to undercut a nearby CL by putting a low price in the book then adding extras on when you arrive. It may still be cheap at £10 but is not worth the aggravation.

A PLEASANT SURPRISE

It was with some intrepedation that I booked this site for ourselves and 3 friends after reading the reviews. However we were all very pleasantly surprised. Ok the shower/toilet could do with a little TLC but I was under the impression with CL's that part of the price deal was that you use your own facilities. The grass was freshly mown and everywhere very tidy. The owner pleasant and a bit of a characterer and the views were to die for. If in the area would use it again.
