Ease of arrival/welcome

Friendly CL in a perfect location.

We stayed here for five nights the Second week in August 2023. As suggested by Glennie we ignored the directions in the book and came in via Foolow and not Eyam, about a mile further up the main road on the right. Much easier as Eyam gets quite busy with parked cars so is a pain if towing a caravan. As requested on arrival, stop at the entrance and knock on the farmhouse door. Lovely welcome from host Glennie who will give you all the gen. If Glennie is working a note is left on the gate as to which pitch to go on if it's busy. The site slopes more than the cover photo shows and unfortunately we had pitch 3 which slopes both ways. However with the use of ramps and blocks we managed to almost get level. Too uneven to put the awning out though. Next day we moved to pitch 1 as it became vacant as it is almost level. You need a double electric lead for this pitch as it's on the opposite side of the field, Glennie provides extra leads should you need them. For information, Pitch 1,2&5 are fairly level. Pitch 3 very uneven. Pitch 4 sloping but not too bad. Water pressure is very high and it's great to be able to fill an aquaroll in a couple of minutes. Elsan point is in the corner of the field and is quite adequate. This CL is in such a great position for visiting and walking the Peaks, waterfalls and Edges, plus all the other attractions nearby. It is also very quite for a working farm. There is a waterfall by the entrance to the farm that runs when there has been a lot of rain, however it's in an old small quarry and is quite precarious to climb down to. Just go a few yards down a track to the left of the entrance and you'll see a small gate on the left. It's very steep and muddy from the gate down to the falls. On the whole we thought this was a great value CL at £16 per night Inc EHU although prices will be going up next year. We'll definitely be returning.
