Well thought out site

We always check reviews before booking a site and this one lived up to expectations. A well thought out new venture and the owners should reap the rewards. We booked by email and were provided with a couple of useful documents with info about the site, nearby places of interest and things you hope you won't need like local doctors and vets. The weather failed to co-operate during our stay but the hardstanding for each pitch ensured there were no muddy issues. It is a working farm with the associated noise and occasional country aromas - neither of these should present anyone with a difficulty. Unfortunately we didn't meet the owners as they were away but their deputy (Mum?) ably provided cover. We're highly likely to be revisiting. Thank you.

Sunny September break

Just spent two nights at this new CL site on a working dairy farm in Derbyshire. The site is beautifully maintained with large level, hardstanding pitches and water on each pitch. This is a wonderful site for visiting the Peak District and surrounding areas. It is also a great site for stopovers too as it is close to junction 29 of the M1 motorway. We walked to the local pub, ' The Shoulder' along the scenic route over the fields. The food was home cooked, very good and very reasonably priced too. We were very lucky with the weather and had two lovely, hot days ( unusually warm for the third week in September) The site is also close to Hardwick Hall and we had a wonderful autumnal walk through the grounds and finished with a coffee at the Hardwick Inn ( which I can also recommend) I can highly recommend this site and will definitely return in future.

More than a stopover.

Really good access from the M1 but this site is much more than a stopover. Lovely site. Well set up. Very nice welcome. Good level hardstandings and really appreciate water on each pitch. Five Pits Trail well worth exploring - excellent facility for cycling, walking or running. Hardwick Hall one of the best NT properties we have been to - very good restaurant - fabulous story.

Lovely, well thought out new CL.

Newly opened CL on a small dairy farm,we were their 1st guests earlier this week, Amy and Jonathon were warm friendly and helpful, print out given about the cl, including their contact tel no's and they are planning to have information point about local area. Easy access from a lane used by local traffic (minimal noise) onto a wide concrete driveway leading to double gates locked with a combination lock. Jonathon sent me the code before arrival. There is a very slight grassed incline after the gate so drive straight to your pitch just to be safe. Large, hard standings each with own water and electric. The usual Elsan , grey waste and bin enclosures to a high standard. The site is only 10 mins from the motorway, so ideal for stopovers but also close to places like Chesterfield, Matlock, Hardwick Hall for longer stays in the area. Local Village with shops and garage a few minutes by car. Lots of places nearby to walk dogs too. We will be back when we are heading south again. Wishing them well in this new venture.
