Peaceful CL with lovely views

Our first visit to this CL but it won't be our last. We received a great welcome from Wyn who was helpful in showing us around the site and showing us the choice of pitches. The CL has great views over the moors of the Peak District and Sheffield. It is well kept and pitches are tidy. It is very peaceful overnight as it is on a quiet no through lane. The turn into the CL is tight and the drive down to the CL is steep but nothing our 7.5 metre motorhome couldn't handle in a low gear. Others on site with large caravans managed it with no problems. CL is convenient for visiting Sheffield and northern area of the Peak District. Would highly recommend.

Views are Amazing and a Warm Welcome Too!

The views are fantastic! This site is so peaceful, totally unwinding within a couple of hours of arrival. Lovely ambience. Wyn and Jane are superb hosts and made us feel so welcome. We had booked for 2 nights, but it is such a lovely site we booked an extra night. Our dog loved it. Only an hour from home so just handy for de-stress stops. We will definitely be back. Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Peaceful and great views!

This was our maiden voyage as caravaners, and was only 4 miles from home in the same postcode! We wanted to make sure everything worked on our new caravan and this was the ideal location to do so before straying farther afield! The site was beautiful, great views down the valley and very peaceful. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and offered any advice if we struggled getting set up for the first time. We booked into the Angel pub for Sunday roast washed down by a few local craft ales, which was a 1.3 mile walk away, up through a tranquil ancient deer woodland. Other reviews said it was a tricky entrance / driveway (which I imagine it could be without a 4x4 and large caravan), but we had no problems with our Defender and 26 foot twin axel caravan getting in and out. A near perfect 2 nights, highly recommend :-)

Peaceful quiet site

We arrived knowing the owners were I holiday and wouldn't be available so that was fine. Our first ever caravan holiday and we loved the views and great location for the Peak District. Our pitch required levelling ramp and the drive was steep and very tricky but we managed and enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Nearly Perfect ...

Delightful site, owners, cats, eggs, views. However for a 9 night stay, and therefore down to our decision, maybe a trifle basic. We were completely new to the area. It would have been nice for some leaflets, local walks and places to visit info, to be available somewhere. And despite advertising availability of WiFi “on some pitches”, I couldn’t find it anywhere, paid or otherwise. Luckily, there are at least 4 pubs within a mile or so, and their WiFi was readily available! I worried about the steep climb out and the narrowness of the gate, but with a powerful car and taking it steadily we were fine. No problem. So not quite 5/5, but well worth an overall 4/5.
