    Hi All

    This is a new thread continued from http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/rallies-meets/9294-staffordshire-derbyshire-meet-16-17th-jan.html the original thread was looking for a venue in the area this is more specific

    This is a casual meet for anyone who fancies a weekend away just outside the Spa Town of Buxton, Derbyshire.
    The site Clover Fields Tourng Caravan Park, Buxton, Derbyshire Peak District have agreed a Funsters discount of £15.00 per unit (regardless of the amount of people/dogs) per night.
    We are told that they can accomodate RV's upto 34' (check direct to make sure). All pitches are hardstanding with 16 amp hookup.
    There is a bus service into Buxton about 5mins walk away in the village, which runs every 30mins. There is also an erratic bus service into Ashbourne.
    Just a thought, Buxton Opera House is showing the Chinese State Circus this weekend if anyone is interested. also buxton is a nice little market town for shopping, there is lots to do in the area see the site

    Hi

    Just had a look at the site, I don't quite understand the 'funsters' discount.. unless there are more than two adults in a van it's the same price ... or am I misunderstanding your post ?

    the normal price is..

    Yes I am interested though I must speak to the person in charge (wife) to see if she is willing to travel 152 miles each way for the weekend.
    It looks a nice spot on the internet and somewhere that I have never been.
    Should she say yes then it will be 2 kids (6+9) and us in are 33' trail lite.
    Please let me know if it is possible to bring the children and that the site will take our RV.
    Thanks for the open invite Mark.

    Hi mark happy to ask if the boss says yes, alternatinly you could call direct on 01298 78731 (only 5 digets) speak to Jan, mention Graham motorhomefun, XGX when you say a single camper do you mean just you in the van, if so happy to ask if you confirm you wish to come, or again call direct, for the record I a'm more than happy to ask questions on your behalf but only if your 95% sure your coming, otherwise it not fair on all concerned

    Hi Graham
    as suspected we are on grandparent duties all day saturday so we're unable to make it.

    Whilst in the lakes (nr. coniston) last week we came upon a small site, open all year, no shower / toilet block, with 10 amp ehu for £ 10 / night. Our oil filled radiator was on permanantly while we were there.
    Could take approx 12 vans, and it's got hardstanding.
    Anybody fancy a meet up in the lakes?

    regards
    Allen

    Full marks for trying though.

    I drive past there regularly, it's always busy. Quite isolated though, nothing much in walking distance.

    A nicer one, nearby, IMHO, is Greenhills Holiday Park - Welcome where you can walk into Bakewell easily.
