A jewel in the crown

We have just spent a week at this superb site. We first came last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. We visited the site again and were not disappointed. Everything is excellent; the facilities the cleanliness of the entire site and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. This really is one of the best sites we have visited. The Peak District itself is lovely and the site is very well placed to access good walking of all difficulties, along with being close enough to the Potteries and the industrial history they represent. We will certainly be back again

Shakedown visit

We have just swopped our Bailey Pegasus and tow car for a Coachman Olympia and. Korando. This visit was to sort both out. We arrived in the middle of storm Hanna, got welcomed by the duty warden, pitched and got soaked. Left all my shoes at home save a pair of slippers. Wardens were brilliant, even delivering the barrier key in the howling gale. Not much to add about the facilities but this was our first outing and we noticed the price increases. Why? Seems to us that it’s been reasonable for the last few years but the big boss has wielded the big stick. Lots of things to do in the area. Buxton and Bakewell are very dog friendly, the Roaches over the way from the site has some hard walks but a few are manageable for wrinklies like us. Tittesworth reservoir has good flat walks. Great area to explore. The staff are brilliant, can’t say it enough.

Shame about the weather

My wife, our two dogs and I stayed here for the weekend when the hurricane arrived during Saturday, ah well, not the sites fault.... The site is very well maintained with spotless shower blocks, however, the A53 is very very busy and there is road noise, especially if you pitch at the lower end as we did, on pitch 24. The noise did not bother us at all, but mentioning it to inform others, however, the site itself is very relaxed and peaceful. In fact, our pitch was great in the storm as the trees protected us from the high winds, just not the torrential rain :O( The pitches are a good size and hard standing and did not have any standing water at all on them despite the weathers best efforts. The dog walk is about 300yds long and through a lovely wooded area, from the entrance to the top of the site and good for first and last thing walks for the dogs, there is also a dog wash station at the top end of the walk exit/entrance. The wardens are extremely pleasant and helpful and work hard all day maintaining the site. The site has some fully serviced pitches but mainly just EHU with TV point which we didn't use as our van ariel worked fine. I would advise leveling blocks for some of the pitches but nothing too bad, I managed to go into the woods and find two logs which I used under the rear legs of the van as they wouldn't reach the floor once leveled front to back, (I left them on the pitch for the next guests to use) Really is a very pleasant and well laid out site with small enclaves of pitches dotted around the tiered site which gave us an abundance of room. The site is about 200yds from the three horseshoes hotel which is OK but it is a long 3 mile walk into Leek, on enquiring, a taxi is £7.00 and busses run but infrequently. All in all a very pleasant stay and we will be returning probably in September, hopefully without a hurricane.

Easter family get away

We visited this site with our two young grandchildren for an Easter weekend break. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. The site is well laid out and spacious all the pitches seem large. The ground is very hard if you are putting an awning up, I bent 3 rock pegs. Small play area in centre of park, not great for very small children but adequate for those a little older. 2 toilet blocks both spotless. Laundry and washing up facilities also great. Water and waste water along with rubbish and recycling facilities scattered around the site so never too far to go to fill up or empty. As others have mentioned there is some road noise, it's not to loud but it is constant day and night. Good supply of books and dvd's to loan. Grand daughter was very excited to be given an activity book and a treasure trail guide. She was even more excited after completing the trail to be given a prize by the wardens. Pleasant surprise to find a fish and chip van visits Saturday evening. Short walk down main road to a nice pub that serves food and decent beer. Although the Caravan Club is no longer our first choice when looking for sites, this is solely down to its price increases putting it in competition with sites with more facilities. We would happily recommend this site to others and would return ourselves.
