Blackwell Hall-Highly Recommended

Just back from a 4 night stay at this lovely site. Perfect location for our first visit to the Peak District, being right between Buxton and Bakewell and walking distance to the Monsal trail. We used this site as a base to explore the wider area (Edale, Kinder Scout area, the Goyt valley and Errwood Hall near the Cheshire border). The owner will supply TV boost cables for pitches 1-4 (on the left as you drive in) but we stayed on the very end pitch and managed to get a signal with no problem at all just using our normal aerial. We had excellent mobile phone signal for both the Three network and Gifgaf. There are fantastic views from all the pitches and they are all spacious. There are drinking water taps at either end of the site and good recycling facilities. You can do several walks straight from the site, so great for dog owners like us. We ate out at The Anglers Rest in Millers Dale, which was 5 minutes drive from the site. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. There was an Aldi, Waitrose and Morrisons (with a garage) in nearby Buxton as well as numerous other shops and restaurants. There was some road noise during the early morning commute hours, but I am a very light sleeper so perhaps others wouldn't notice this. The site was peaceful at other times and quiet at night with dark skies. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this site and would definitely return.

Very nice site

Hard to find fault with this site. The views are amazing and we would definitely return. Like some others have mentioned we could not get any tv signal despite the aerial points which have been installed, this could however have been down to our cable.

Winter Weekend

Just had a lovely winter stay at this CL, easy access from the A6, only a short stretch of narrow road on the final approach. The site has 6/7 hardstanding pitches, to give plenty of pitching options, they are not the largest but we had plenty of room for our caravan, using one of the spare pitches for the car. We did need a ramp to level the van however. There is plenty of space between pitches too. The views from the site are beautiful and there are plenty of footpaths, one which goes to the Monsal trail runs through the farm. You can also pick up the Pennine Way just down the lane. If you prefer to drive, the car park at Millers Dale is only a few minutes away. We didn't see the owners on arrival, just popped to the Farm to pay. We had no problems with the electric and had good television reception, and 4G with EE. Water and waste point are easily accessible and the CDP is out of site at the bottom of the site. It was very quiet, and very dark at night, no light pollution, remember a torch. The site gives easy access to the Peaks, Buxton and Bakewell. All in all a pleasant site and one we will use again I am sure.

Nice Site

Stayed 8 nights in June 2018. Nice quiet site adjacent to a working farm. No farm noise or smells. Site well laid out, 7 hardstanding with electric all with views, area of grass well cut, chemical toilet disposal 13 steps from end of site- better than looking at it I think!! Electric outlet for our pitch (nearest entrance) didn't work as RCCB faulty but standard cable could reach next double outlet along. No TV reception so watched a few DVDs. Owner can be elusive but very friendly. public footpath passes site Monsal trail in one direction. Had several visits from a pair of woodpeckers looking for dinner on the gate in centre of the site. Access to farm lane and site ok but cross roads and A 6 junctions not great visibility. Overall enjoyed site and would happily return

No television!

The previous reviews never mentioned the television reception. We couldn't get anything and had to rely on our DVD collection. It says that the reception is good so I don't know when the reception fell away. It was easy to find but the photos are a bit old as the site is showing its age. The views are stunning and although we had a night of high winds the caravan never moved it was just noisy. Because of the TV reception we wouldn't come here again.

Comment from the Club:

Many thanks for your review. The CL owner has been in touch as since your visit they have had an Electrician visit and have had Television connections installed on each of the pitches so this will no longer be an issue for anyone staying on their site. We hope this helps and that you will visit again soon.

Did I mention the view?

I won't mention the view because it hasn't changed, lovely when the cloud doesn't obscure it. The site is reasonably well looked after, access in is OK for a twin axle, 24' caravan but out needs care and constant checking as it's a bit tight. The elsan disposal is away from the field and could do with some maintenance, as someone else has commented it would be nice to see the owners on site. We were there for several days and didn't see anyone, paid during the week as I've learned to either pay in advance or asap after arrival to ensure a quick getaway on the day of departure. Electric tripped a whilst we were there and another member left early because his kept tripping. At the time of our visit the supply was 10amp but the owners called out the electrician to check it all and I believe it is going to be upgraded to 16amp.

Lovely site well located

Stayed on this site for 6 nights over the New Year. We had a choice of hardstanding pitches all with good access. Great views over the hills of the Peak District. Lots of walks direct from the site. Convenient for shops in Buxton or Bakewell.

Splendid site

This site is easy to find with the narrow lane having mowed sides and passing places. There is a choice of 7 gravel hard standings. Although our stay was mainly wet the site was never muddy. The grass was mown closely. Other reviews have mentioned the views which are stunning. The site is sheltered from the north by woodland. we stayed for 7 nights but we had difficulty finding the owner both when we arrived and when we wanted to pay. It would have been nice had they visited the site occasionally. Otherwise, a great place to stay.

Fantastic place to spend New Years Eve

We stayed at this CL on New Years Eve. We found it easily enough, no problem  with access.  The views are STUNNING and we watched a beautiful sunset from our motorhome. We also enjoyed all the fireworks at midnight !!!! Lots  of walking nearby.  We would return.
