Nice site

The Firs Club Campsite
This is a really nice site to explore the Peak District. It’s peaceful and beautifully kept. It was our first visit to this particular site, the staff are welcoming and friendly, the shower block is well situated and very clean. The bus stop is just outside, connecting to Belper, where trains go to various other locations in the area and beyond. There is a pub in walking distance, but there is quite a hill, and the car museum, which is a must, is a very short drive away, as is the tram museum. The information room is very informative with plenty of leaflets and books to assist you with planning your stay.

Perfect Little Site

The Firs Club Campsite
What a beautiful small site. This was our first visit and will definitely return. The members of staff were most helpful and welcoming. We were surprised the site wasn’t busier during our 5 night stay but we were happy with the silence and beautiful views. A gem of a sight but disappointing to hear that it’s winter closure will soon become longer. Thank you.

Pleasant week in Derbyshire

The Firs Club Campsite
The Firs was a new site to us. We chose it as there were a few places we wanted to visit in the area. It’s well located and there are a range of attractions not too far away. The site is quite small and it’s a bit compact for larger units. They will fit just. In addition follow the route instructions. The other routes have steep gradients and it’s worth the u turn at Morrisons. Site staff were very helpful and the site is well looked after. WiFi is good, dog walk is sufficient but I wouldn’t let a dog off lead, there aren’t any easy walks from site or pubs, so as a consequence it’s not a great location for families. However for others it’s ideal as apart from a bit of road noise it’s peaceful and there is a nice view from the site.

A welcoming and peaceful stay.

The Firs Club Campsite
A warm welcome by the wardens, who identified and commented on the available pitches during the registration process. They were friendly and helpful throughout. This is a small and peaceful site, with ample space between the level and tidy pitches. The facilities and the site in general were kept in excellent condition throughout our stay. We (and the dogs) enjoyed a lovely walk around the reservoir at Carsington Water and a trip to The Heights of Abraham. The directions to the site listed on the website are excellent and should be followed rather than Satnav. Our only disappointment was that there are no easy walks from the site with dogs. The local pub is only a short walk away but vehicles are driven at excessive speeds on the lane past the campsite.
