Good size pitches with EHU, water and drainage. Excellent security with number recognition and key pad. Slight more expensive than other CL's but well worth it. Good dog exercise field and dog walking from site. The seasonal pitches beyond the CL have their own entrance so wasn't a problem. Maybe an up to date photo showing the proximity of the seasonal pitches would be a good idea. But overall a very well kept site. Would definitely recommend.
Once again, we were keen to get away once lockdown ended. We arrived at Crowtrees on the afternoon of Monday 12 April & first impressions were great - easy access from the main road, good security (one gate with number plate recognition, one with a number key pad) and a cheery welcome. The hardstanding pitch was easily big enough for both caravan & awning and the EHU, drainage & water supply were within easy reach. £23 per night for a CL is a bit on the high side, but we felt the facilities justified it. Due to remaining restrictions, we used our onboard facilities most of the time but when we did use the toilets they were clean & good social distancing/sanitising arrangements were in place. Given how close we were to the main road, the amount of traffic noise was minimal. Fresh eggs available to purchase on a CL is always a bonus & these were large & delicious. One area I would have marked them down on was the lack of recycling facilities, but lo & behold during our stay some nice new bins for glass & other recycling were installed - another tick!
This is a great site with very good facilities, fully serviced pitches and views across the Staffordshire Moorlands. The site is close to the Manifold Bike Trail and is convenient for Leek, Ashbourne and the Peak District. Be aware that the image is somewhat out of date as there are now approximately 12 seasonal pitches situated beyond the CL. These pitches have their own entrance and we did not find them at all intrusive as the CL is completely separate from the adjacent site.
Just stayed 2 nights at crowtrees farm CL 18&19 October 2019, what a lovely clean,neat, tidy site, the check in was so simple, a lovely young lady met us at the keypad barrier and gave us the code, we paid her simple, everything was explained and we were shown the immaculate services the site has, showers,toilets washer/dryer info booth, lovely free range eggs we had boiled one morning at £2 a doz great value.this site is one of the best CL sites we have been on and we tend to only use CL sites as there more personal and we love working farms. There is a shop a pub and a fish shop all within a very short walk, and bakewell and Buxton are 20 mins away by car. The site is flat, all hard standing pitches with hook up and your own tap and grey waste disposal,the lawns are mown short and grass collected. If you park facing the river the views over the valley as the sun goes down are stunning. Well done crowtrees farm, we will be back. Marc&shelley motorhomers from Leeds.
Well what can I say..This is one of the best kept CL's I have ever visited. They have really thought this through. Excellent security, inc automatic barrier & code controlled gate on entry. Hard standing, very clean 2 x showers & 5 toilets (although we did not use) info hut, washer & dryer in kitchen. Each pitch is fully serviced with electric, water & grey waste. Bins, emptying point x 2 & dog/bike wash area close by. YES there is another 15 van site next to the cl BUT we were thee during the kids holidays so both sites were full BUT there may as well had been just us as the site was very quiet & peaceful with no obvious effect of the other site. ALMOST PERFECT my only gripe! I got the impression? that the owners did not like the pitching of awnings on the grass next to the hardcore & I had trouble pegging out my awning. I feel that IF the wind had picked up the awning would have been away. I did use steel pegs and proper hammer but the pegs I did manage to get in kept easing out. Other than that we will visit again probably without the awning. Cheers. Ridge.
