Great stay at Spray House Farm

Fantastic CL with views to die for, it is a walkers paradise with access directly from the site straight onto the moors and the kinder area. The owner was very friendly and helpful, lending us an OS map of the area. The access road is steep but not a problem and the site was very easy to find. The pitches are laid out on hardstanding and totally suitable for our motorhome, site clean, tidy and well maintained. Will definitely return

Lovely Weekend, Beautiful Views

We spent a lovely weekend at this CL in August, the entrance is off the main road and we had no problem entering the farm road, approaching from Chapel en le Frith. It is uphill to the site, but didn't have any problems The site is a large field, grass cut nice and short but yes it does slope, the owners have set small hard-standings into the grass which are almost level. They are big enough for a caravan/motorhome but not an awning. As another reviewer says putting up an awning on some of the pitches would be difficult, but with the EHU points spread out across the field it's possible to pitch on a more level area. Water and waste facilities are very good. Electricity is metered. The views from the site are beautiful and apart from a bit of aircraft noise as it's on the flight path for Manchester airport we found the site peaceful. The Sett Valley way is just down the road and good for walking or cycling to New Mills. The Lantern Pike Inn just down the road was very friendly, dogs made welcome too, we enjoyed a very good Sunday Lunch there. There is no pavement on the road so although walkable, I wouldn't recommend it. We really liked this CL and it was handy for us to get into Manchester to visit our son & we hope to use it again.

Fantastic views but ...

... As others have said, access can be tricky, particularly if coming from Glossop where the LEFT hand turn is not only tight, but has a steep incline. Location not helped by the official gps coordinates being out by about half a mile! Not mentioned is that electric is by coin meter - make sure to bring £1 and/or £2 coins. It can be tricky to get level but perfectly possible. Views are amazing but there is, understandably, farm noise.

Peaceful, amazing views

This is a very small site with 5 small hard standings. Absolutely ideal for our Autosleeper. The site is basic but extremely tranquil and beautiul. The owners are very friendly. We had the most lovley evening sitting with a glass of wine watching the lambs racing around the field, the views of the High Peaks are amazing.

Cracking Views......Shame about the pitches!

Stayed for 3 nights over the May day Bank Holiday weekend..... Pleasant CL with absolutely cracking views over the Peak District towards Little Hayfield....! Good TV and mobile Phone signals, left alone by the owners, only spoke to them to pay them. Now the down sides....... Access the site from the Little Hayfield side. We accessed from Glossop turning left into the farm entrance. This is reasonably tight resulting in my having to swing out onto the opposite side of the road with the hazards on. The Access road is quite long and steep (again, accessing from the right gives you a better run at it! Now the site.....this has quite a slope on it despite very little warning on the website. The pitches are 'hard standing' but are narrow and have been dug into hillside using quite deep kerbstones. The pitch is just the width of a standard tourer, I doubt you'd fit on a new 8ft wide model. We then had to pitch our porch awning onto the grass hillside.....I wouldn't say the slope is harsh but we didn't need the caravan step for weekend! Also, because of the slope, we couldn't actually sit in the awning....your beer slid off the table! There were two pitches at the bottom that looked slightly flatter but you had to get your unit close to stone wall. Pulling off a sloping grass site in the rain tested by 4x4 driving skills as well (although can't blame the owners for the weather!) Be warned this is a working sheep farm....if the sound of the farmer bombing round on his quad will annoy you, then don't do in lambing season. Such a shame really, a little investment into making the pitches better and access on and off the field and this would be a little cracker......the views are amazing.
