among the owls

First time here. Very helpful admin, when we were booking. We visited in February when a complete week of rain was forecast. The site was peaceful despite visitors to the wood. The pitches were great even with all the rain, not water logged, especially as we have two dogs that love the mud. I would love to come back when the trees and the planting are in bloom, especially on a sunny day, the site will be beautiful. Every evening the owls kept us company, and we were woken by the chatting of the small birds. We were visited by ducks, pheasants and geese. Ashbourne has a Sainsburys for those forgotten items and Birds bakery does a great cream cake. If you are a walker, take a visit along the Wolfscope trail, well worth a look. The village of Hartington has a great tea/farm shop- the one near the toilets, and these a pub for those that like a tipple. My only negative comment is, that we were in a 8m motorhome, and that there was little road to turn around on, to get out. Despite having an empty bay next door, I hadn't got enough swing to avoid the grass entirely. I probably would have been better reversing all the way back to the car park and turning around there. On a dry day, this wouldn't have been an issue as, the rain had caused the grass to become water logged, and I didn't want to damage the grass, or get stuck. We had a lovely time, despite bad weather. Thank you Heritage wood. We would definitely recommend you, for those wanting a little peace and tranquility.
