A compact but beautiful site

The Firs Caravan Club Site
Our first visit to this wonderful site, which is ideally situated for visiting the Peak District, with fabulous views across the hills. We received a super warm welcome from Marie and Perry, who go out of their way to make you feel at home, nothing is to much trouble. The site is immaculate and very well kept, all facilities are very close to hand at all the pitches. The toilets, showers and washing up area were spotless and as our stay was during the COVID restrictions we never felt at risk. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked to return in October

Lovely site, spotlessly clean

The Firs Caravan Club Site
Wonderful site in beautiful Derbyshire. Site spotlessley clean, wardens go above and beyond to help you enjoy your time on site. Really need a vehicle to enjoy the wonderful countryside, but lots to do within a 10 mile radius of site. We did walk into Belper on two occasions but as previous reviews there is no footpath, however there are bus stops going either way right outside the site. We ate in the Devonshire Arms in Belper for our anniversary and had an excellent meal, great service and wonderful real ales. Taxi from site cost £5 each way. Already booked to return to this site and the Devonshire in September

Super friendly and welcoming.

The Firs Caravan Club Site
We spent a few days at the Firs at the end of June. From the off, the welcome was exemplary and our hosts were never less than cheerful and very helpful. The facilities are maintained in a spotless condition and really are excellent. Around the site are hills. Lots of them. So unless you are pretty fit be prepared to drive off for trips out. We did walk down to Belper, which is a joy, and the local pub is very fine too. Overall, a great base for exploring the area.

Excellent Well Kept Site

The Firs Caravan Club Site
We had our first visit to The Firs between 10th & 14th June having changed an earlier booking and we are so glad we did. The site is immaculate and beautifully maintained and the facilities are spotless. Wee got luck picking the end grass serviced pitch at the top of the facilities block and it was perfect. Marie and Perry were very friendly and welcoming and although always busy keeping the place spick and span they were always happy to assist and help with any advice or queries. I have certainly added The Firs into the book of sites we will definitely go back to if back in that area. Well done and thank you Marie & Perry.

Quiet & well kept site. Good biking area especially with an bike for getting back up those hills

The Firs Caravan Club Site
I pitched on No 67 which required horizontal to peg positioning, nice view as elevated and a gap in the trees. The picnic table area has magnificent views. Wardens very helpful and welcoming & keep the site well tended with lots of little quirky colourful touches. Most pitches are hardstanding & there are quite a few serviced pitches for those wanting to be fully plumbed in. Arial socket also available for good TV reception if you bring your cable. The amenities block was kept spotless and the band system seemed to be well respected by members. I brought my ebike so getting back up to the site was not quite effortless but manageable. The Cromford canal towpath can be joined at Ambergate and this takes you on a delightful walk or cycle into Cromford. The Shining Cliff distillery is also just off the main road going out of Ambergate to Cromford on the left and well worth a visit. Bus stops just outside of The Firs site entrance. Nice pubs within walking distance. Wouldn't think there is much to keep children entertained without travelling from the site to places like Matlock Bath etc. I had a very enjoyable stay with good weather, many thanks to the wardens for all their efforts around the site... surprised any prickles escaped their attention though, but they do grow v quickly!
