Views to die for!

Park Farm
Beautiful setting, so picturesque and stunning views as far as the eye could see. Owners were away, so it got a bit confusing on arrival. Still, once sited, we gasped at the beauty of the views in front of us. Unfortunately, the dogs at the farm were very chopsy and didn't stop barking until it got dark. We have noisy dogs ourselves, but not quite as vocal as theirs! Overall, loved our night there and would definitely return.

A forever favourite

Park Farm
We have been using this CL since 1994 when our daughter started at Nottingham University and have visited off and on ever since. Over the years the only change affecting caravanners has been the sad departure of Adrian's Dad, Dennis to the great CL in the sky. He was such a lovely man. Adrian and Rebecca are very busy and it may prove difficult to locate them but don’t worry, they’ll show up eventually. You have to bear in mind that the CL is only a small part of a much bigger farming and equestrian business. They don’t mind where you pitch, within reason, so just go for it. As the photos show, the site is sloping and you will need levelling blocks, but the viewer are to die for. The walking opportunities from site are innumerable, make sure you have the OS map. An easy walk into Dale Abbey brings you to the Carpenters Arms or into Stanton by Dale to the Chequers and the Stanhope Arms. Didn’t try the Cowshed but it looks good.

Great stop-over

Park Farm
We used this fantastic site as a break on the journey to North Yorkshire and what a great place. Fantastic views, good dog walking with the footpaths linking to other places of interest ie.the alpaca farm. The owner made us really welcome and we wished that we had more time to enjoy this great site. We will return and stay longer next time.

A real revelation!

Park Farm
Having only stayed at club sites previously, I was somewhat trepidatious about staying at a CL for the first time, but I fell in love with this one almost instantly. I was immediately put at ease by Adrian on my arrival, and thrilled by the panoramic view available from the pitches. I've lived and worked in the surrounding areas for nearly three decades, but was oblivious to this brilliant area for walking being on my doorstep the whole time. There are public footpaths aplenty, with one that leads to several others accessible from the site. I have family and friends who live 6 miles away in Nottingham, and my mind is quite made up that I cannot do better than basing myself here whenever I visit them. The easy access to major transport routes is another plus point. I recognise my circumstances are somewhat unusual, and not everyone has the facilities to cope with the absence of a toilet/shower block. Also, I'm travelling solo, which probably also makes compromise easier. That said, I honestly feel like the pros to staying here (scenery, tranquility, excellent free wi-fi, walks, etc.) massively outweigh the cons. And the comings and goings of the horsey folk associated with the adjoining equestrian centre helped offset any sense of isolation I'd anticipated (wrongly as it happens) experiencing at a small CL. Adrian was really helpful during my stay, replying to all of the enquiries I made in a timely fashion. To be honest, I'm only sharing with you what an unexpected treat I found my stay here to be because I've already made multiple advance bookings to make sure I can return again soon!
