12 night stay

From the warm welcome we received to the bid farewell when we left i cannot fault to host's, we would like to thank them for a wonderful stay. Site is easy to find from the directions provided, the site is very peaceful with views over the valley. We encountered the woodpecker, Buzzard and deer whilst we were on site. Yes there is a slight slope, extra wood chocks are provided. My view is that an extra 5 minutes setting up is well worth it. We were blessed with lovely weather so this helped make it a memorable break, just what we needed. We would recommend this site to anyone, although please leave some space for our return!! A credit to the owners, i wish all CL's were like this. There is plenty to see and do in the area, we went on walks around Rudyard Lake, boat trips available, small train rides along the lake to enjoy. Goyt valley & the roaches are a must to visit.

Hits the spot!

Having spent a much needed and relaxing bank holiday on this CL then its only fair to pass on our thanks for running a great little CL!. Yes, the site is slightly sloping but pitching was very easy, with a selection of levelling blocks at each pitch IF you need to use them, we didn't......and I would dispute the need for a 4x4 as previously commented on,granted this is my opinion, however the addition of the anticipated additional hard standing tracks for pitching on would be brilliant. Great views, easy access, great hosts who welcomed us, and visited the site to chat during the weekend without being over powering or "in your face" , everything you want in a CL!! The shower on site was warm and welcoming, clean and now included in the site fee, NOT the additional £1 as per previous reviews (upgraded). I shall not rave to much about this CL as it may hinder being able to get on site in the future. My only request is maybe a small folder with local attractions, walks, pubs, things to do etc for those visitors not knowing the area, however, that said, with a small amount of driving around the area, we found some great pubs, a narrow gauge steam railway track and coffee shop,a small brewery, plenty of walks around reservoirs, forests and canals and a really warm welcome from Toby the dog on our return to the van (N.B Toby can smell the whiff of a BBQ from the farmhouse......... Will we return........? without a doubt. Thank you.

Will Return.

This is our first time at a cl site so we did not know what to expect or to what we should compare it to but here go's. Good points - Lovely,peaceful area with large pitch area's. Met a lovely couple who had been in the CC for over 25 years, they were polite and helpful. Not so good - As stated in the handbook this site is on a slope which for us was quite dificult to get our car and caravan up as we do not have a 4x4. It has to be said though that it had rained a lot and the area had drained well. £1 for a shower is too expensive. Overall - we will certainly use this site again especially when we get that 4 wheel drive!

Weekend break

This is a truly peaceful sight with lovely views. The large area means plenty of space between pitches. Shower facilities were very clean but be aware that at £1 for 7 minutes (I'd call it more like 5!) then this can add considerably to the cost! There is nothing within walking distance but Leek is only 5 minutes away. The ground is pretty uneven so go prepared as we had to hunt around for pieces of wood to level us up.

As it says in the book

Very quiet - even the sheep keep decent hours! I had trouble phoning (no one answered) but owner most accommodating when we did arrive. Slightly disappointing walking - a mile along the road to find some footpaths - but the roads are quiet. Leek is well worth a visit, excellent supplies in the market.

A Welcome Winter Break.

We had a lovely restful four days here in March when there was still plenty of snow around. We arrived in a blizzard, but soon the sun came out, the sky was blue and the view down towards Leek was stunning. All credit to Mr and Mrs Lowe for creating such a peaceful site - a large slightly sloping field with the pitches well spaced out overlooking a beautiful rural landscape - what more could you ask for? Well there is more, a nice modern toilet and shower and the thoughtful provision of a selection of levelling blocks for each pitch to help you set up and last but not least, a nice friendly welcome. There is plenty to do in this area, just on the edge of the Peak District and within easy reach of the Potteries. Rudyard Lake just down the road, the bustling town of Leek just a short distance away with a very handy Sainsbury's. The whole area is full of things to do whatever you enjoy, walking, historic houses, theme parks, shopping to name a few. We look forward to returning to this site soon - in March the overnight temperature was -10C, something we hadn't experienced before, but we still found our stay here restful and comfortable. Heartily recommended!
