Nice site - great views - bit noisy if near road

The Firs Caravan Club Site
Lovely site with great views and superb pitches at the back end of the site. I arrived late and had a choice of only two pitches - both near the road. One was dark the other OK but some road noise.Clean, tidy, well kept and very helpful staff. Belper is an interesting little town that has all the services you could wish for. Not possible to walk safely with dogs from the site as no pavement on the main road. That said there's a pleasant walk into town via the local cemetery nearby where this is plenty of parking on the road.

Lovely site in a beautiful location

The Firs Caravan Club Site
Booked for a night in September for a stop over on the way to the Lincoln show. Having had an engine problem with our motorhome we were glad to be on the road again, however... Having been booked in onto a lovely sunny pitch we went for a long walk into Belper following the map provided by the warden (Alan). After a very peaceful night we were ready to leave when the engine wouldn't start again and we called the AA. They came and after a delay trying to locate one replaced the starter motor. We asked Alan if we could stay another night and he was very helpful and said it was absolutely fine so we had another peaceful night. In the morning we tried to start her again and no she wouldn't start and again we called the AA. Alan couldn't have been more pleasant, it was clear that if we needed to stay for a third night it would cause him a problem as the site was fully booked but he said not to worry that he would sort something out. As it was the AA got us on the road again and we carried onto Lincoln. This is a lovely site with beautifully maintained pitches and toilet/shower facilities that are spotless and a credit to the wardens. We will definitely be returning.

Lovely site , busy road spoilt it a bit.

The Firs Caravan Club Site
The Firs is a lovely site, beautiful countryside all around. The busy road spoilt it a bit for us, as we like to walk from our van it could not be avoided. The staff work very hard, and it is well kept & spotless. Very friendly. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Fabulous site.

The Firs Caravan Club Site
We have been back here a few times now and love it. Peaceful site and friendly helpful wardens. Very clean. Lots to do in the area for the whole family. Nothing to do with the site but wouldnt recommend nearby pub. we had a bad meal at the nearest pub the spanker. Really poor service and unhelpful staff, and food was not great. Wished we had used pop up gryos van on pub carpark as it looked amazing.
