12 night stay

From the warm welcome we received to the bid farewell when we left i cannot fault to host's, we would like to thank them for a wonderful stay. Site is easy to find from the directions provided, the site is very peaceful with views over the valley. We encountered the woodpecker, Buzzard and deer whilst we were on site. Yes there is a slight slope, extra wood chocks are provided. My view is that an extra 5 minutes setting up is well worth it. We were blessed with lovely weather so this helped make it a memorable break, just what we needed. We would recommend this site to anyone, although please leave some space for our return!! A credit to the owners, i wish all CL's were like this. There is plenty to see and do in the area, we went on walks around Rudyard Lake, boat trips available, small train rides along the lake to enjoy. Goyt valley & the roaches are a must to visit.

Hits the spot!

Having spent a much needed and relaxing bank holiday on this CL then its only fair to pass on our thanks for running a great little CL!. Yes, the site is slightly sloping but pitching was very easy, with a selection of levelling blocks at each pitch IF you need to use them, we didn't......and I would dispute the need for a 4x4 as previously commented on,granted this is my opinion, however the addition of the anticipated additional hard standing tracks for pitching on would be brilliant. Great views, easy access, great hosts who welcomed us, and visited the site to chat during the weekend without being over powering or "in your face" , everything you want in a CL!! The shower on site was warm and welcoming, clean and now included in the site fee, NOT the additional £1 as per previous reviews (upgraded). I shall not rave to much about this CL as it may hinder being able to get on site in the future. My only request is maybe a small folder with local attractions, walks, pubs, things to do etc for those visitors not knowing the area, however, that said, with a small amount of driving around the area, we found some great pubs, a narrow gauge steam railway track and coffee shop,a small brewery, plenty of walks around reservoirs, forests and canals and a really warm welcome from Toby the dog on our return to the van (N.B Toby can smell the whiff of a BBQ from the farmhouse......... Will we return........? without a doubt. Thank you.

Will Return.

This is our first time at a cl site so we did not know what to expect or to what we should compare it to but here go's. Good points - Lovely,peaceful area with large pitch area's. Met a lovely couple who had been in the CC for over 25 years, they were polite and helpful. Not so good - As stated in the handbook this site is on a slope which for us was quite dificult to get our car and caravan up as we do not have a 4x4. It has to be said though that it had rained a lot and the area had drained well. £1 for a shower is too expensive. Overall - we will certainly use this site again especially when we get that 4 wheel drive!
