A Relaxing site

Used this site en-route to Monmouthshire for two nights. Wished we could have stayed longer, the site was situated on an elevated position offering excellent views of this wonderful countryside, we were made very welcome by Mrs Wale. We would definitely return for a longer visit.

Nice friendly site

Small farm site with chickens, geese, ducks etc. Sloping so need levellers. Owner very friendly and extremely helpful. Near to many interesting places. Definitely worth a visit.

Good for adults too

The site was easy to find and the welcome very friendly, with the owner show us where water etc. was. With hens and guinea fowl running about through the day there was always something to watch and with the guinea fowl to hear too. From the site it is easy to access a lot of the tourist attractions which this part of the world is famous for. Also there is a lot of good walking in this area with one footpath almost directly opposite the gate which led down the hill to Tansley village and pub about 20 mins easy walking but remember it's all up hill on the way back. Turning left out of the gate and follow the road to the 'T' junction take a right and there is a very nice cafe, almost opposite this is a weekend car boot site. Returning to the 'T' junction if you turn left here and continue to the left hand bend there is a bridle path on the right where you can leave the car and walk to Ashwell this a lovely walk of about 4 miles and fairly easy going there are some steps very near the end close to Ashwell but a couple of very welcome watering holes selling food as a reward for your efforts. We will definately return here again.

Every Kids Dream

If you have kids and want a lovely little CL, then this is the site for you.  It is on a working farm and if you like seeing livestock running free then it is a dream.  My daughter was in heaven when we arrived as there was ducks, chickens, geese and turkey's running around the whole site so my daughter didn't have to go far to make friends with the wildlife.  This site is very close to Matlock so ideal for exploring the local area.  There is a lovely public house down in the village which we managed to get a late meal on the Friday night.  The site does have a bit of a slope but nothing that a few levelling blocks under your wheels won't sort.  The landowner was very welcoming and showed us where everything was on the Friday night. We would definitely go back and my daughter was in tears when we had to leave as she wanted to stay and help look after all the animals.  Hopefully next time we go she might be able to help feed the lambs.  Fingers crossed.

Nice CL

A small but nice and quiet CL.with wonderful views all round.Owner friendly and welcoming. We found the hens and ducks etc on site interesting - they didn't mind us at all. if you have more than an average length van you need to go down the field to get off pitches 3,4, 5. There is a nice, clean toilet for caravanners if they wish to use it.

Watching ducks and chickens

If you don't like livestock then this site is not for you. But if your like us and can watch the chickens, ducks, peacocks and many other farm birds running around the site then you will love it here. It's a short drive into Matlock. There are many walks all around. Our hobby is geocaching, we have done loads of caches while using this site as our base. The owners are very helpful too.
