GREAT WOODLAND LOCATION

We stayed here from the 24th June to the 4th July in glorious weather. Our reception by wardens/assistant wardens was friendly and helpful. We chose pitch 62 being one of the few remaining pitches with afternoon sun. It was very convenient being next to the end of the toilet block. The facilities were excellent and immaculately kept with spacious shower cubicles and lots of hooks. The surrounding area is beautiful and includes an eight mile walk round the reservoir. Ashbourne is close by and useful for supermarket shopping. Belper and Bakewell are in striking distance and well worth a visit as is Dovedale where our golden retriever was able to cool off in the river. Be aware that the pine trees drip sap which gets on your car, caravan and awning (strangely it washed off the car in the rain on the way home). We found the hardstanding extremely hard when trying to put pegs in for the awning and used a combination of heavy duty pegs hammered in and some screw in pegs. This is a unique environment and we would hope to return some day.

Fabulous site

Beautifully located this is a fabulous site for everyone. We have visited several times and even when full it never seems busy. It is immaculately kept and the facilities are scrupulously clean. We take our dogs and this site has the best dog walk we have come across though it can get muddy during wet weather and is hilly and uneven in places (not a criticism). The staff are friendly and helpful and went over and above to try to sort out a booking error we found we had on arrival on our last visit. We absolutely love this site and plan to return again in the near future.

Wonderful walks

Excellent site with secluded pitches to suit all needs. Good central location for visiting attractions. Site staff always approachable and helpful. Will return again as even when site was full over the weekends we stayed there it never seemed crowded. We have 2 dogs and the walk is with out doubt the best we have come across but it is definitely for the able bodied in places. This is not a criticism but it goes around the perimeter of the site and is hilly in places and the dogs loved it.

A Good Place to Stay

We stayed here to travel about Derbyshire and found the staff very helpful. The site is well maintained and kept neat and tidy. We found the toilet block clean and some what fresher than most. Being among the trees gave some peaceful moments with only the bird song to disturb us. Try walking along the dog walks for excellent views even if like us you don't have a dog.

Return Visitor

We regularly stay at this site as it is excellent for our weekend breaks and not too far from home. The staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The site is kept immaculately. There is plenty in the locality to keep all ages occupied - walkers, bikers, water enthusiasts etc. Highly recommended.

Up there with the best.

New to caravanning, this is the third place we’ve stayed at this year. It was lovely. Able to chose our own pitch, all you need is easily available and the site is set in a very picturesque location. Will definitely be going back in the future.

Avoid kids hols

Campsite and wardens very good but avoid kids hols, screaming kids running round all day till 9-10 at night gets a bit jading after a few days, remember these sites are for everyone not just bored kids and ignorant parents.

Our 'go to' campsite

Really like this campsite, it is only 30 mins away from us so we use it pretty often. We never have any trouble finding a nice and quiet pitch, but it can become a bit busy around the play area during the school hols. Nice long walk to the visitor centre for Carsington water, and a huge walk (8 miles) around the reserviour if you can handle it. I would recommend the Knockerdown Inn which is a 5 min drive away (dog friendly), I would not recommend the pizza van that comes onto site - very expensive and the meaty topping was shocking.. Great facilities (probably the nicest we have been too so far), and some good dog walks from the site.

Bank Holiday family weekend

The site is located in a beautiful place with great views of the surrounding area. It is well maintained and the wardens are friendly. Having two play areas for kids really helps if you are a family.

Amazing long weekend, favourite site by far!

Absolutely gorgeous site, with a lovely atmosphere. Couldnt have asked more from the wardens who were really helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to help us, and always with a smile. Would recommend to anyone
