    Callowtop is a nice site and convienient for Tissington Trail. There is a large layby just a few hundred yards from the start of the trail ideal to park the M/H, if you can find cheap CL / site else where

    There's one just further up from callow top with direct access,not sure of the name, Highfield rings a bell, I'll google some more.

    Have you done this before? as the last time we did it(admittedly some time ago) it felt like a main road and you had lots of walkers on here too. And the obvious - it's not circular.

    Agree with Hilldweller, round Carsington is very nice, if you want a longer ride have you done Rutland water, several good cl's adjacent?

    I do appreciate that Rutland is a completely different part of the country:D

    Highfields is now called Ashbourne heights, we used to have a static on there. They are not cheap and they will be closed for motorhomes this time of year.
    Try Washbrook farm, it shares the same driveway as Ashbourne heights.
    It is right on the Tissington trail and is a certificated site.
    Mr & Mrs Webster tel 01335 350256 or 07968 709145

    The Jug and Glass Inn (53.150044,-1.766907), on the A515 Newhaven/Buxton road, about a field away from the Tissington Trail.

    Also Brundcliffe Farm (53.15085,-1.758962) (£13 per night incs Wifi, EHU) at the side of the Trail about half a mile from the Jug and Glass.

    If you need any more let me know.

    Hi.
    If you want,"Cheap as chips", NO hidden agenda !. There is a farm field just as you turn right off the Wirksworth rd/Ashbourne rd for Carsington Res,directly on the right,a couple of years ago,it was £4.50. There is also another two just past the Res. on the left,first is a n ordinary,(Not CC/CCaC),second a CC site,then if you are a..."Stella person". There is the knockerdown pub,thjis is on the Belper to Ashbourne road,near a village called Bradley,home of a one man band,"Birch Logistics "! Oh thrice LOL..
    His Pipes,(Exhaust noise) will not disturb you,he starts about 09.00 hrs,and is home for about 14.30 hrs. (he is scared of the dark LOL).
    Hope this helps,all the above are VERY good sites,have fun.
    Tea Bag
    PS. If i had a pound for every ton i hauled up/around and down that area,my address would be............ BERMUDA !!

    WE stayed at the Rivendale park site last year when cycling the Tissington Trail, very nice site, convenient to the trail, but a bit pricey, but it is in Derbyshire, so to be expected.

    A word of warning.....

    The Cinder Trail, Whitby - Scarborough.

    Looks great but you need a top grade mountain bike and be an Olympic athlete to survive it. Well it was last year, all the top washed away leaving us riding on bricks and rocks. The bikes did survive but I have no idea how. It was get off and push in many places. It's a great pity because the views are stunning. Way better than Tissington.

    We stayed at Washbrooke Farm some 3 years ago, camping tending to be confined to the top of the field where a goodish slope levelled out a little, so all the five units on our visit were in a row on what little gravel was available. I seem to remember noting in Jim's travel book "anchors required", very basic but a very short walk to the trail to Ashbourne. Again I seem to remember it took us 2 hours to walk there with the dog and she was knackered when we got back.
