Could be so good!

Positives Lovely views up to the peaks. Close to Leek, 15 mins steady stroll, nice market town, good for food a drinks Good access locally to the Roaches and Peak District. Friendly booking and welcome. Opportunities. Hard standing could do with re-stoning. Thin layers of soli firm on top. Some Pitches are a little short in length, you may have to pitch transverse across. Toilets need renovation, would not recommend you use them. On some pitches you will need length electric cable, only two electric stations for 5 pitches. One water point, ok for aqua roll users, inboard Motorhome tanks make take some awkward parking prior to pitching Overall for £15 a night you can get far better facilities else where.

Comfortable working farm

Nice location 15 mins walk from Leek which is worth a visit. A working farm with lots of horse activity. Lovely views of hills beyond horses in fields. Excellent Italian restaurant "Sera Bistro" opposite entrance to site and booking advised. The Toilets were probably the worst I have come across - the showers were padlocked shut and even if not I would not have used them here. Our pitch was the nearest to the WCs and I didn't notice anyone else using these facilities during our 2 night stay. Overall we enjoyed a comfortable stay. Don't be put off by the WCs.

Noisy at 5am

Booked this site for 2 nights mid week, difficult to get the caravan in as narrow pitches, got woken up both mornings at 5 am by cars from using the equestrian centre which is yards away from the site. People from the equestrian centre talking and chatting loudly at 5am no consideration for the caravanserais on site. The toilets are filthy and unusable were not clean at all and used by the horse centre as well. Would not recommend this site at all awfull 2night stay

Leek visit

We have a 7 metre motor home and the pitches 2,3 and 4 are small and awkward to park. The caravan next door had to have part of thr car sticking out on the road! Access to fresh water tap requires a long hose which is also the case for electric hook up. Toilets could do with a good clean. Views from site are lovely as is the surrounding countryside.

Very Handy

Not surprised to find this CL full at the week-end. It’s very handy for walking into Leek from and not far from Waitrose. Handy for a walk around Tittesworth Reservoir or many cycling routes and good hard standings for a motorhome.

Beautiful!

Familiar with Leek and the surrounding area I knew what to expect before we arrived, but was still really delighted with the views! This little site is lovely, admittedly the loos do need a bit of a revamp, but the views more than make up for it. Just be aware that pitch 3 is little distance from the hookup so you need an extension cable. on the whole lovely !

Beautiful spot

Nice site with beautiful views over the hills from each pitch.  Toilets were being worked on whilst we were here so ladies and gents had to share the gents....not a problem though. Some folk have complained about the "traffic" to and from the livery yard behind the site...we did not find it a problem, in fact, it was nice to see the horses being led in and out of the paddocks and out for exercise etc.  Very "handy" for the southern Peak District, if you need it there's an Asda about a 5-10 minute walk away. I'd definitely return but then again I'm not as "picky" as some!

all good except loo

brilliant site its the first time we have been here. Nice welcome and lovely spot to stay in. its not far to leek from here and we walked to the town that evening. The only issue was the loo, the toilet it self was clean, but the room needs a bit of attention, otherwise ok.

Easy access and stunning views

We spent seven nights here in early August 2013. Very straightforward access off the A45, 1km north of Leek town centre. Moss Rose pub (recommended) just across the road, 20 minutes to Buxton. Exceptional views north over The Roaches and Morridge. Five hardstanding pitches medium to small but well kept, as was the surrounding grass. Large overhanging trees at the back of the pitches made them a little dark. Warm and friendly welcome from Scott on the evening of our arrival; although no one actually responsible for the CL onsite. There has been some discussion here regarding the toilets. Firstly, I feel a toilet on a CL is a bonus. The gents’ wc basin and handbasin were clean throughout the week, handwash and toilet paper were provided. The actual room was scruffy and dusty but it was fine to use. My OH said the ladies wc was disgusting on the Sunday night we arrived and she refused to use it. I checked the ladies on the Monday evening and they had been cleaned and OH was happy to use them for the rest of the week. It is possible that the ladies wc has heavy use over a weekend, when the majority of visitors to the adjacent livery appear to be ladies? If this is the case, it could it explain the conflicting comments regarding toilets? We loved Leek and the surrounding countryside and intend to use this CL again.

Agree with the good points listed by others. No showers. The toilets are tired and a little bit scruffy but the actual toilet and wash hand basin were very clean. Owner visits to collect money and give out keys for the toilets at 6.30pm....he is available on the phone at other times.
