No Hook Up? No Problem!

The Thorpe’s run a lovely site and they have a warm, but not intrusive, welcome. The site is well maintained and tidy. It slopes gently and we needed to ramp one side of the ‘van to get it level; there are spots on the site that are flat. The water supply is accessible with taps at sensible heights. The toilet disposal is a bit primitive and the lid to the grate is a bit heavy. We chose the site because we never use hook-up… but (if you really must have electricity) there are a couple of pitches that have access to the mains… check before arriving! “Steady as you go” through the gate; it isn’t that narrow but the gate posts are imposing columns of millstone grit and would be less forgiving than timber. The 4g phone signal on the 3 network was spot on and the O2 signal was good for calls and texts; data was very slow. The DAB signal was patchy.. radio 4 was OK but radio 3 was weak. I don't have a TV. I was here because I had to spend a few days in the Peak District while my wife was otherwise engaged. Being a “softy” cyclist I decided to test Derbyshire’s reputation for good cycling. Its brilliant! Tow paths have survived the derelict canals and the redundant rail network has been utilised as leisure trails. I was blessed with wonderful weather for mid-October and cycled for miles and miles without ever seeing a road. Good value for £8, lots to do locally, beautiful scenery – nearly as beautiful as Yorkshire. The Thorpes keep a couple of the prettiest horses I have ever seen - very playful. Forget the hook up! 100 amp battery, 20 watt PV panel, 5 days, £8 quid a night. No problem!

A Hidden Gem of a Location

I have stayed here many times over the years and thought it time to write a review. The site is beautifully looked after by the owners, who are a very welcoming and accommodating couple. The Lane up to the location has been recently resurfaced with Tarmac and entry is now much better than it was previously (Max 5mph please). Beautiful walks on the many footpaths. A good base for the Crich Tramway Museum, Cromford, Matlock Bath, Matlock and the Derbyshire Dales. Worth a visit. - Poor TV signal and pick your spot for Satellite too. Decent mobile phone and Data on 'EE' and 'Three' on the upper pitches (recently improved 'Three' mast).
