Alan Rogers Review

This spacious caravan park on a hill above Matlock has 122 terraced pitches, all on hardstandings and with 16A electricity. Most have good countryside views. There are some 80 touring pitches, 27 of which are fully serviced. Tents are not accepted. There are rows of mature trees and pitches are large and separated by shrubs and bushes. The enthusiastic owners have taken full advantage of the fact that this was previously a market garden. High standards have been maintained and some facilities improved. Recreational grassy areas and attractive flower borders are well tended, whilst the top corner of the park has been kept as woodland.

Buildings are of natural stone and well equipped. Reception incorporates a small, well stocked shop and tourist information. Local attractions include Matlock Bath and the Heights of Abraham, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall, Eyam and Castleton.


Two well equipped, heated toilet blocks include free preset showers and some washbasins in cubicles. Good facilities for disabled visitors. Family room with small bath, toilet and washbasin. Bathroom for children. Laundry room with washing machines, dryers, irons and ironing boards. Motorhome services. Play area. Security barrier with keypad access at all times. Tents are not accepted. WiFi throughout (charged).
