We visited this site on a cold March weekend, there is a spectacular view from every window. Each pitch has a water tap and grey waste drainage, new for this year EHU. There are lots of walks from the site, the nearest pub and eateries are in darley dale, barringtons is a great place for meal at a reasonable price. We were at this sight the weekend of the Northern Light show (see their website) but we sadly missed this specticle, at night step out of the van to watch the stars, with no light pollution its very special. I cannot recommend this sight highly enough, we will be back very soon.
We have just returned home from a very relaxing stay at Tax Farm CL. We only live 20 minutes down the road but could have been a world away. The two tiers of pitches on the hillside have beautiful wild flower meadows above and below the pitches. Cornflowers, daisies and poppies visible from all windows of our motorhome. Commanding views over Two Dales and Darley Dale, with Stanton Moor rising above the Derwent Valley in the middle distance. On the horizon we had views as far as Friden and Newhaven.....stunning. The walk down the valley from the site takes in lakes, woods, waterfalls and even a hidden cave. Across the lane above the site are more lovely walks in the Forestry Commission Matlock Moor plantations. Horace the Mini Schnauzer had a whale of a time! The owners of this CL are very helpful and their website (linked from this CL page) is very informative. This is a working farm and there is very occasionaly some to-ing and fro-ing up the adjacent drive. Never intrusive, and kids will love the big tractors driving past. The site will be very popular and we are certainly looking forward to visiting again soon.
