Alan Rogers Review
Situated just north of the market town of Ashbourne, Callow Top has an attractive setting in an elevated countryside position. The park’s location makes it well placed to allow visitors to explore the picturesque villages, bustling market towns and the many attractions of the Peak District. It is ideal for both walking and cycling holidays. Spread over seven separate areas at the top of a hill, there are 200 flat pitches of which 100 are for tents only. The touring pitches on hardstanding have 10A electricity, the grass pitches have no power supply. Water points tend to be rather scarce. Some of the pitches are rather small and on these, cars are parked away from the pitch. Day and evening visitors are not permitted.
The focal point of the park is an old farmhouse which has been converted into an ‘Olde English’ style inn and restaurant serving award-winning real ale brewed in its own micro-brewery and a good selection of pub food (closed Tuesdays). The inn also has a family room and a large beer garden. There are also cottages to rent. Dove Dale, Tissington and High Peak trails and the Manifold Valley are nearby.
