A lovely couple of days

The Firs Club Campsite
We have just returned from a couple of days at this site. The pitch was fairly level and overlooking trees which gave a feeling of privacy. There were wonderful views from the site and it was nice to see all the bird feeders dotted about. We spent time watching the visitors to the one near our pitch. The toilet/shower facilities were always spotlessly clean and the wardens were always busy keeping everything neat and tidy for visitors. We walked into Belper which is a lovely little town and also walked to Heage windmill having Sunday lunch at The Spanker on the way back. I’m sure we will return in the future.

Beautiful, peaceful site

The Firs Club Campsite
We have recently returned from 5 nights at this site and definitely hope to return in the near future. We were greeted by the relief wardens who were friendly and helpful, lots of useful information about the pitches and we were able to choose where we wanted to be. The site itself was perfect, extremely well kept, stunning views and immaculate facilities. We truly could not fault anything. Most of the pitches are hard standing and all level. There is large building central to most pitches with toilets, wash cubicles, showers, laundry room, washing up room and even an area for dogs to be showered down! When the toilet block is being cleaned a short stroll away you will find the information room and a toilet if needed while the main block is closed. The information room is also something to behold, so much information about places to visit, places to walk and places to eat etc. maps and leaflets and lots of other interesting things to see and read. We did go out to eat at two of the suggested pubs, The Spanker and The Black boy, we had excellent meals in both places, plenty of choice and good value for money, we went end May so would suggest you might need to book as I can see both places getting busy in the summer, they both have outside areas and welcome dogs. There are plenty of walks, things to see and places to go. We would definitely recommend this site for the welcoming wardens and the ambiance if you want a relaxing break away, you don’t need to go far to take in the breathtaking views because they are right there. There are a couple of picnic tables tucked away where you can sit and drink you wine and drink in the views! Can’t wait to go back 😊

Superman!

The Firs Club Campsite
My wife and I recently stayed at The Firs in our motor home. To spare my blushes let's just say that I managed to get myself in quite a pickle whilst reversing onto the pitch. I realised I needed some help! So I went to the office to confess my sins. Marie, the warden. was brilliant. She told me not to worry and reassured me that they would sort everything out and did no more than summon her husband (fellow warden) Perry. Within minutes Perry had assessed the situation and arranged for another member, with a big 4 wheel drive BMW, to give me a tow out of my predicament. The following day I witnessed Perry in action again when a caravaner on the next pitch has electrical problems. I was impressed. Marie was very knowledgeable on local walks and other information. She always had a smile. They are both a credit to the club. I highly recommend this site.

Little gem

The Firs Club Campsite
What a little gem of a site and only 30 minutes away from home but felt like a different county. We arrived on site to be greeted by the warden who explained the site to us as I went in to book in. Both wardens were very helpful and had a chat and a joke which was brilliant, great start to the weekend. The site was absolutely beautiful and clean and the views are amazing. Perry and Anne-Marie are the best wardens we have ever met on a club site!!
