The toilets and shower were clean and well kept.

This review is for Ashbourne

The toilets and shower were clean and well kept. The cubicles are large enough to shower in without wetting your clothes. There is a nice walk around the site taking in the nature trail and the pond. The one disappointment was the Wifi, although it was cheep at �1 a day, this price reflects the poor cover supplied. Only available about 25% of the time and a very poor signal. Other than this the site is good. A good bus service to Ashbourne which is interesting place to visit, but you can see all there is to see in two days.

This site really is lovely & it was full the weekend we stayed here.

This review is for Ashbourne

This site really is lovely & it was full the weekend we stayed here. It has a bus stop just opposite the site entrance making visits to Ashbourne or Belper easy. The on site dog walk is super with plenty of opportunity to spot some great wildlife around the nature reserve. I must point out that although the facilities are clean there are only 3 showers (in the ladies) & 1 small family room with another shower in. There aren't any privacy cubicles either which meant that when all the showers were in use you couldn't just have a full body wash. There were also lots of children around which I don't have a problem with as I've got 2 teenagers myself however I was often finding that children were making a mess of the sinks usually with toothpaste & toilets were not always being flushed. On a more positive note the showers we're nice & warm so worth the wait. Lots of good walks from the site too.

“A friendly and peaceful site, the showers and toilets are spotless and Ashbourne is only a 5 min drive away. There is a dog walk and even though it is a short walk its a peaceful walk first thing in the morning listening to the many birds attracted to the site due to the conservation being carried out. We would definitely use this site again for a peaceful short break. One tip don't follow sat nav.”
