Our first visit and we'll definitely be coming back

We stayed 2 nights at the end of March. We've only just joined the CMHC so this was our first experience of one of their sites. It is a lovely site. It's extremely clean and very well kept. Being able to walk to Carsington Water from the site was brilliant. It was peaceful, relaxing and we had a lovely time. We'll certainly be back later in the year, we all really enjoyed it.

Lovely peaceful location

Stayed 3 nights at the end of March and had perfect weather. This was my fourth visit to the site and although I was not able to get my preferred pitch overlooking Carsington Water, number 118 on the opposite side of the site, offered pleasant views through the trees. I visited Wirksworh just a few miles away. I have only previously been at night and not explored it. I was surprised at how much bigger than anticipated the town is. It is an old town with many interesting buildings. Well worth a visit, as is the Heritage Centre on the main street, (with a good café to the rear).

Our visit after a long time since here before.

We have been to this site before but many years ago and had forgotten how good it was. A slightly strange layout due to the area it is on, long and thinnish with bays rather than a circular route around the site. Found a good pitch fairly close to the one amenity block, and facing the right direction, I have some mobility problems. It was very quite during our four day stay but very nice and we relaxed very easily. The site was well run and clean and the wardens were very pleasant and helpful. There is Fish and Chips on a Friday night coming onto the site, unfortunately we had to leave Friday morning!!!! For the fitter person it is a good site for walking and for cycling and there are some pitches, not many that actually have a Reservoir view. I would recommend this site very highly.

Excellent location for Cycling

Stunning location (though it rained for us) but views of Carsington water were fantastic and staff excellent. Dark at night so a great place to star watch if you can get a gap in the trees.

Spooky Halloween

Went to Carsington for 4 nights in the October half term which this year included Halloween. Lovely to see pumpkins outside caravans and motorhomes and everyone welcomed our grandchildren for "Trick or Treat". Plenty of things to do, Carsington Water Visitor Centre is within walking distance or there is a huge (but pricey) car park. The centre does not welcome dogs but the shops in the courtyard do, and there is space outside to eat.The Churnet Valley Railway had its kids halloween while we were there and that was a good visit. Peak Village at Rowsley was good as well. Plenty of shopping in Ashbourne, several dog walks on site and great staff, one of whome booked me a table at the Knockerdown pub just up the road for an evening meal. Good menu there, looked pricey at first sight but only £55 for six of us, so quite reasonable. Recommended! Information room is small but plenty of information there.First visit for something like 20 years but we will come again - especially for the BBC Radio 2 in the toilets!

excellent Autumn Break

a late decision to go away, left us looking to go close to home and we are so glad we did. we had never stayed here before as it is only a short drive from our home, what a mistake that has been from the moment we arrived we got a lovely warm welcome and had everything explained to us. the staff, facilities and site were all excellent and considering the time of year you'd expect the site to be covered in leaves etc but know the staff must have worked exceptionally hard to keep it this clear and clean the toilets and showers where immaculate all in all a great weekend made all the more special by very friendly helpful staff and to their credit an immaculate site Thank you so much !

Magnificent Autumn Break

Just spent a gorgeous few days at this site. Polite, friendly and professional staff. Facilities excellent and the site overall, is very well tended. Everything appeared to be in mint condition. Ready access to Carsington Water Reservoir. A breathtaking walk around the reservoir of about 8.5 miles. A cycle route is also avaiable alongside. Visitor centre en route provides excellent opportunities for refreshment and craft shops etc with delightful views across the reservoir. The camp site is also within easy striking distance of Kedlestone Hall; the ancestral home of the Curzon family. Extending back to William the Conqueror, the Hall is rich in their family history. The outside features magnificent gardens and offers a variety of different lenghth walks with superb views of the hall. Carsington Water camp site has a lot to offer.

Beautiful Site

A lovely site, nestled in Pine Trees. I agree with other reviews and there's no reason to add more. I wouldnt hesitate in recommending and I will stay again should I be in the area.

Lovely weekend in fantastic site

What a warm and friendly welcome and stay! The site was beautifully maintained with all facilities immaculately clean, warm and welcoming. There was even a dog shower for our rather grubby dog after a walk around the reservoir! Would definitely recommend?

speed on all sites

What a lovely place to stay and very friendly staff site well run and toilets very clean with music to listen to the only problem is with some members who are still driving to fast on site most sites say first gear only someone is going to be hurt or even killed on site where it has happened in the past so it needs to be addressed by every member In the club it is hard for the wardens keep an eye on it so all members cold help them to make there jobs much easier as they have enough to do many thanks Paul from Rugeley
