You know how it is, sometimes you find a CL that is so lovely that you really don't want to give it a great review as you want to keep it a secret. !?!?!
This is one of those gems that stands out from the crowd, others have commented on the access both locally and on the site itself which to be fair is steep and a little rough but once you have navigated to one of the two tiers you are presented with some of the most incredible views from enormous serviced pitches so worth just a few moments care to get there. I can imagine that a FWD drive car pulling a big van up from the bottom tier might be 'fun' on a slippery day but the owners are so helpful I'm sure they would be more than happy to help.
We were blessed with some of the most un-seasonal weather possible in September and sat out each evening watching a stunning sunsets whilst BBQing and having a glass of wine and waking the following morning to incredibly still and tranquil morning sometimes looking down on the the mist filled valleys below.
The surrounding area is beautiful with local walks in to Two Dales and many places of interest a very short drive away, we enjoyed Chatsworth, Buxton, Bakewell ( don't forget to sample both the tart and the pudding! ) and walking the Monsal Trail amongst others.
We saw very little of the owners which was fine, they were there when we needed them but otherwise kept out of the way, clearly very busy working the farm which was also fascinating to watch from our perch on the hill. Communication was excellent with emails confirming the booking and clear instructions with safe directions for arrival, you wouldn't want to come in the obvious route from Matlock !!!
One last thing....Please don't all rush off and book this site as we will return many times and don't want to find it full !!
