Alan Rogers Review

Nestled within an attractive pine plantation, Carsington Water Caravan and Motorhome Club site in Ashbourne is beautifully landscaped, with pitches in open clearings separated by trees. This gives visitors privacy and quiet, which many appreciate. Improvements to the toilet block and facilities, including a new drying room, were undertaken in recent years. Carsington Reservoir, a major attraction in the area, is conveniently adjacent to the site. A15 minute walk will bring you to an opportunity for fishing, sailing, windsurfing and a children's playground. The sites has 127 mainly hardstanding pitches (some seasonal) all with 16 amp electricity.

The site is a perfect base for walkers and cyclists wishing to explore the beautiful scenery of Dovedale and the surrounding countryside. The local villages, all with excellent pubs and restaurants offering hearty food, are within two to three miles. Don’t forget to look out for examples of Derbyshire's homegrown art - "Well Dressing" - which happens in many villages from May to September.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

The Campsite Says...



Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat-nav, as this will navigate you to the rear entrance. Please do not attempt the narrow route from Kirk Ireton, or use A52 from the west due to steep gradients. Turn left off the A517 (Ashbourne – Belper) in Hulland Ward at the signpost to Carsington Water into Dog Lane. In 0.75 mile at the crossroads turn right at the brown signpost to Carsington Water. The site is on the right in 1 mile. N.B. No arrivals before 12pm.
