Tideslow treasure

This CL is one that keeps drawing us back !! Large field with many options to pitch up,you can even go up into a wooded area and look down on the rest of the site Great walking from the gate,a little stroll up onto High Rake is a must-the view is heavenly Peter is a charming man,and always takes the trouble to visit you daily,and usually with a tale or two to tell ! Once you visit,be warned......you will feel compelled to return Thank you Peter

Lovely site, especially if you want somewhere quiet.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this site. It's not hard to see why most people rate this site 5 stars. Lovely site in a very peaceful location. Great views on a clear day and the owners are extremely friendly. This is a working farm. Waking up in the morning to look out of the window and see sheep grazing on the grass literally just a few feet from my caravan was a nice touch! Facilities are extremely limited to say the least. Basically a hole in the ground to pour your chemical waste from the toilet, two water taps (one for drinking water & one for rinsing out the chemical toilet) & that's essentially it. There's no electricity on site, even the owners house several hundred yards down the road has no mains power (he runs his house on solar with a backup from a generator). If coming here you will need to be able to run your caravan or motor-home "off-grid", In other words you will need to have on-board toilet & shower facilities and be able to run everything off of gas and 12v electric from your leisure battery topped up with solar, but let's be honest, that's part of the fun of coming to a site like this!!! One other person commented about access being difficult with a tight turn and country lanes. I disagree. I didn't think it was that tight. Besides, what do you expect if you're going to a remote site in the middle of the countryside. There is a track from the road all the way to the middle of the field. It could possibly get a little soft underfoot (and easy to get stuck) in the winter months when you deviate from the track to park up, especially if you don't have a 4x4, but this would apply to most CL sites. Usual things apply when off-roading to park the caravan, keep the vehicle moving to keep the momentum up, don't stop in the dips, try not to let the wheels spin & don't stray too far from the track. I just got back from a short stay at the start of March and I had no problems with my front-wheel drive Vauxhall Zafira. 5 stars from me. I'd go again and happily recommend the site to anyone else looking for somewhere to stay.

Lovely basic site

This is a lovely little site. Pauline and her father are friendly, welcoming and helpful without being obtrusive. They responded promptly to emails (amazing how many sites don't) with clear information and good directions. The site itself is a peaceful field surrounded by dry stone walls and beautiful countryside. There's almost nothing here. Nothing, that is, except beautiful views, excellent walks, and fantastic sunsets. What more could you want? There's plenty of space in the field for the number of units (I never felt cramped) and pitches are pretty flat. Access is good. Facilities are limited - a cold water tap and an elsan disposal point - so you do need to be prepared to use your own loo and shower. There's a good pub in the next village, about a mile away. If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful escape then I would recommend this site.

Wonderful site

This is probably the best site that we have ever stayed at; straightforward to find and access was easy, lots of space for privacy, absolutely beautiful surroundings, wonderfully quiet and the owner was welcoming and very accommodating without being intrusive. There are magical walks with breathtaking views in every direction and also several towns within easy reach for provisions and eating out. We booked in for three nights and ended up staying for eight!

Our top spot in Derbyshire.

Lovely views & quiet central location

Easy access to site & a number of level pitches, wonderful open views, peaceful location, footpath &  unusual ancient monument adjacent. Great spot to access all Peak Park attractions. Monsal trail 2.5 miles away to access fabulous track to Bakewell for cycling or walking. Barrel Inn @ Bretton is a must visit for great food & views into Chatsworth & around. We always return to this site over a number of years, appeal never fades.

Fabulous views, great for cycling and walking!

Access is along a lane with passing places, and a tight turn into the site - but don't let this put you off. Grassy site with some uneven ground surrounded by a few trees - a wooded dell with fabulous views towards Hathersage - something you won't get on a big all-singing-all-dancing site where you're often staring into someone elses 'van! Great location for walking and cycling - the Monsal Trail is only two miles away to Bakewell, and we also cycled from the site to Eyam. Great fish & chips in Tideswell, and the Barrel Inn on the top road to Eyam get's my vote for food!

Years of happy stays

Having started to review the sites we visit I was surprised to find none on this site. We have been visiting this site for over 20years and come August B/H it will be 4 times this year, each time we visit we find something new to do or see. The owner Peter Atkin is very pleasant and always pops to have a chat & check that everything is ok. The views are beautiful and we have often sat out in the evening and watched the Gliders taking off in the distance, its lovely and peaceful. Always plenty to do, Castleton with its Mines, Historical Ruins & gift shops, Bakewell lovely Market Town, market days are great plenty of shops to visit & of course the Bakewell Puddings. Tideswell is just up the road about a mile with its beautiful Church, also has all the amenities you may need. It has a fabulous Butchers & Bakers along with paper shop, grocers & small supermarket not forgetting our regular arrival night visit to the fish & chip shop located just opposite the church being greeted with jovial welcome from the owner along with lovely fish & chips. The village also has a number of Pubs. Just outside the site is a footpath on which you can walk for hours picking up different routes and exploring the countryside, its funny though we nearly always return through the village of Great Hucklow where we have a little rest & refreshment (pint for me bowl of water for the boys) this is also our Sunday evening visit, they do a lovely Sunday roast. We would highly recommend this site.
