Ease of arrival/welcome

Great base but very noisy in middle of industrial units

We booked this on the basis of previous reviews. However on arrival it was rather disappointing as it felt like a small gravel car park. Probably better for camper vans and motor homes as not much space to manoeuvre a caravan especially when all pitches are full. There are good transport links when you don’t have a car which is good. At first we thought “it can’t be here” as you are basically turning into a residential street and industrial area. Because it’s industrial it’s quite noisy eg from 8am there’s a roaring sound that sounds like a jet engine til 5pm. Then there’s the car repair place using a pneumatic wrench and playing loud music. It’s definitely not a relaxing peaceful site. So no relaxing days enjoying surroundings and barbecuing. This CL should purely be viewed as a base. The canal residents also play loud music some evenings. On Day 2, 3 of the 5 Motorhomes left which made it feel better as it didn’t feel quite so claustrophobic. There’s not much space between units and no grass between them. Toilet facilities are nice as are the staff who are Very pleasant and helpful. The New Mills high street has lots of facilities on your doorstep which is good especially in Motorhomes. There’s a terrific Italian restaurant 5 mins from the site and we went there twice during our stay. The food is authentic, the staff extremely attentive and knowledgeable. A great night out. It’s even dog friendly for upstairs seating or outside seating. They even give your dog their own meatball! As time went on we grew to like it more as it’s great for walking in many directions. So if you just want a base it’s perfect but it’s not the nicest for lazy days round your caravan. Overall it grew on us and we probably would return but it’s not an idyllic setting. So be aware if this when booking.
