2021 lockdown escape

Once again, we were keen to get away once lockdown ended. We arrived at Crowtrees on the afternoon of Monday 12 April & first impressions were great - easy access from the main road, good security (one gate with number plate recognition, one with a number key pad) and a cheery welcome. The hardstanding pitch was easily big enough for both caravan & awning and the EHU, drainage & water supply were within easy reach. £23 per night for a CL is a bit on the high side, but we felt the facilities justified it. Due to remaining restrictions, we used our onboard facilities most of the time but when we did use the toilets they were clean & good social distancing/sanitising arrangements were in place. Given how close we were to the main road, the amount of traffic noise was minimal. Fresh eggs available to purchase on a CL is always a bonus & these were large & delicious. One area I would have marked them down on was the lack of recycling facilities, but lo & behold during our stay some nice new bins for glass & other recycling were installed - another tick!

A WEEKEND STAY In JANUARY 2020

This is a great site with very good facilities, fully serviced pitches and views across the Staffordshire Moorlands. The site is close to the Manifold Bike Trail and is convenient for Leek, Ashbourne and the Peak District. Be aware that the image is somewhat out of date as there are now approximately 12 seasonal pitches situated beyond the CL. These pitches have their own entrance and we did not find them at all intrusive as the CL is completely separate from the adjacent site.

We will be back

Just stayed 2 nights at crowtrees farm CL 18&19 October 2019, what a lovely clean,neat, tidy site, the check in was so simple, a lovely young lady met us at the keypad barrier and gave us the code, we paid her simple, everything was explained and we were shown the immaculate services the site has, showers,toilets washer/dryer info booth, lovely free range eggs we had boiled one morning at £2 a doz great value.this site is one of the best CL sites we have been on and we tend to only use CL sites as there more personal and we love working farms. There is a shop a pub and a fish shop all within a very short walk, and bakewell and Buxton are 20 mins away by car. The site is flat, all hard standing pitches with hook up and your own tap and grey waste disposal,the lawns are mown short and grass collected. If you park facing the river the views over the valley as the sun goes down are stunning. Well done crowtrees farm, we will be back. Marc&shelley motorhomers from Leeds.

What a Crackin' CL this is!

Well what can I say..This is one of the best kept CL's I have ever visited. They have really thought this through. Excellent security, inc automatic barrier & code controlled gate on entry. Hard standing, very clean 2 x showers & 5 toilets (although we did not use) info hut, washer & dryer in kitchen. Each pitch is fully serviced with electric, water & grey waste. Bins, emptying point x 2 & dog/bike wash area close by. YES there is another 15 van site next to the cl BUT we were thee during the kids holidays so both sites were full BUT there may as well had been just us as the site was very quiet & peaceful with no obvious effect of the other site. ALMOST PERFECT my only gripe! I got the impression? that the owners did not like the pitching of awnings on the grass next to the hardcore & I had trouble pegging out my awning. I feel that IF the wind had picked up the awning would have been away. I did use steel pegs and proper hammer but the pegs I did manage to get in kept easing out. Other than that we will visit again probably without the awning. Cheers. Ridge.

Two week stay in September

We booked for ten nights, and extended to 14 nights due to my husband unexpectedly needing to travel on business. The location was perfect for exploring Staffordshire and Derbyshire including the Manifold Way, Tissington trail, Dovedale, Caulke Abbey and Chatsworth which were highlights of our trip. We had a fully serviced pitch on the CL, with access to separate male and female facilities including toilets (2no), showers (1no), a single washing up sink (1no), a washing machine and tumble drier operated by 50p coins. The access to the site has recently been upgraded, with a;electronic barrier close to the main road and a padlocked gate prior to the CL field. A nice CL in a rural location with village access to pubs, a local shop and a fish & chip shop.

loverly site but is it a C/L

We booked the CL site but put on the 15 van site next to it. It was peaceful and pleasant plenty of room . Good pub grub just down the road ,fish &chip shop and shop. cycle track near by. Showers were new ,clean. The only gripe I have could you have a folding bench as the space is tight and as I am getting on I need to sit down when I dry myself and a mirror would be handy.

Message from the owners of crowtrees

We at Crowtrees wish to reply to the previous review of our site. Firstly thank you for bringing a few matters to our attention.We are still waiting for the new information to go on CAMC website which would inform people about the 15 pitches and also our website www.crowtreescaravansite.com ,i will chase this up immediately. We have taken on board your comments about the children on bikes,we have now put a chain across the access from the cl to the new site to stop this happening again. As for the rude people that were making a noise late at night the rules of the site are to be considerate to other site users after 10.30 as stated on the welcome sheet that you collect on arrival,if this had been brought to our attention at the time we would of acted on it. Myself and my family try to give people who stay with us a warm welcome and a pleasent stay and do everything we can to give club site facilities at cl prices but understand that not every site is for everyone and you can't give everyone what they want all the time. Once again thank for your review

If only it was only a CL

We Stayed here for a weekend a week ago, we had looked at this site on numerous occasions and thought that we would book it. We were not told on booking that the owner has now built a 15 pitch site on the same field, and not really separated from the CL. we had Children from this other site riding bikes around our vans on the CL. It is not an adult site, but there were not children at the 5 vans on the CL. The showers and toilets are now shared with the 15 pitch site.There seemed to be a lot of people saving pitches for friends and family that arrived later and were out side until around 12am. Entrance to the site very good and lots to do in the area, just a shame about the other site as we would not have booked it if we had known, thats why we chose CL's.

It's Great

I want to tell you how awful this site is and keep it for myself but I'm going to be honest and say this is a great site. Clubsite facilities at CL prices. Very friendly owner who works hard to provide excellent facilities. Loads to do near by. Manifold Valley Cycle path and cycle hire. Excellent walks. You must visit the The Old Yew Tree pub a 25 minute walk it is unique. This one of my favourite sites. There's a great chippy and village shop also a short walk away. Alton Towers Leek and Ashbourne not far. Give it a try.
