A Welcome return

After a 4 year layoff from caravanning, we recently bought another van and immediately booked one of our favourite sites, The Firs. On arrival, we were greeted with a friendly smile by relief wardens Anthony and his wife [Whos name Ive forgotten...Sorry :-( ]. After explaining that we was there to try out our new van and awning, they were only too happy to offer help and advice and, then popped in later to see if we had settled in ok. This site is a beautiful, well maintained, quiet site, situated on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful derbyshire countryside. The toilet block and facilities are spotless and well looked after and positioned well so, wherever your pitch is, you don't have to walk far. Theres not much of a play area for small children but there is a nice picnic area overlooking the beautiful countryside and a couple of nice public houses within walking distance that serve fine ales and food. I could go on forever talking about the beauty of this site, we can't fault it and we will be visiting regularly in the near future

What a View

We arrived on a very wet Friday in August - the Wardens were very helpful & said as we had a small Motorhome we could use the service point right by the entrance to save driving down to the lower level. They had also marked out what pitches were still available which made it easier than driving all the way round. Loved the location - when the rain stopped - what a view from the viewing point / picnic area - we sat there a few times. This has to have the best Information room with a jigsaw out for people to have a go at completing. Belper itself was lovely and not a bad walk down hill & back up it - took us about 40 minutes. Nice town, loads of places to eat - we went to the Railway & Devonshire. Again Wardens very helpful with directions and maps for walks - we did the Ambergate walk from the site - the route directions were spot on. We will definitely be back here. So that was our last site on a 3 week tour of the Peak District and we don't feel like we have scratched the surface - still so much to see and do.

A prefect setting

Our second visit to this site and we will be coming again. The site is very well maintained by Les and Angie all the time and it is a very peaceful place to stay. Even when full, it does not seem busy or noisy in any way. Ideal location for exploring the area. We made use of a fully serviced pitch, so the daily water and waste chores were avoided! Everything very clean at all times of the day.
