    Close to the Tissington Trail for cycling/walking and there are walks form the site gate into Dove Dale and Hartington. Quiet and as a guest said "one of the best views we have ever woken up to"!

    We now have 2 hard standings for all year round fun too. All welcome on a "you show us your van, we will show you ours" basis!

    What a nice site.
    If we bring the caravan over to the UK.
    I will try that out as my son now lives in Chessterfield it will be ideal.

    @Kool Kroozer normally the price is increased because of the anticipated greater use of electricity In winter.

    Looks a lovely site but as a solo traveller can't justify the cost when I can be on a C &CC site for about £10 with elec. Sorry !!

    When people heat awnings and some cant drive their motorhome which means work doing on the ruined pitch it all takes time and money. Like anything, it costs more to stay in London than Bradford, it costs more to stay in a National Park than somewhere no-one wants to visit.

    Looking for the sunny side of the street
    There seems to be fewer & fewer lower cost cl's/cs's......this one is about average price, but as Cal54 says, sometimes the club sites can work out cheaper these days with the various offers they do.

    Does look a lovely site :)

    Some CL owners are discounting if EHU is not required which can make it attractive to the solar brigade.....

    This reads badly. I take it you mean 2 hard plus 3 grass pitches. Same on your web site. People see 2 and think "must be a bit small" whereas hit them with "5 Pitches with 2 hard standing" looks more inviting.

    Grand area, I ride it often and with great pleasure.

    Agree, just changed the wording this morning on CC site. I think we will make 3 more hard standings nect winter after the mess a MH made yesterday:-(
    We don't have showers but find most people are happy to use the MH or caravan showers.

    Its a long time since I've stayed on a site, either small 5-van one or a main one, how do the prices compare nowadays?

    Cl or site. It doesn't matter to us. As long as it's nice with great countryside on the doorstep like this one.
    Looks lovely and we'll bear you in mind next time we're up your way.
