Alan Rogers Review

This is a pleasant, compact park on a ridge above the valley of the River Derwent. About half of the 72 pitches are usually available for touring units, the rest being used as seasonal pitches. There are a few level grass pitches (on which the use of groundsheets is discouraged) but most are on hardstandings with grass verges. All have access to 10A electricity. Reception is housed in a wooden cabin next to the warden’s caravan and has local information; new arrivals are taken to their pitch. The owner also lives on site. The park is clearly well cared for.

Despite its location, there are not many views from the site itself, though there are, of course, plenty in the Derwent Valley below. The historical mills between Matlock and Derby have led to this becoming a World Heritage Site. The magnificent scenery of the Peak District National Park is just a short drive away: Dove Dale, Matlock Bath and the Heights of Abraham, the Crich Tram Museum, the Tissington Trail, Bakewell and Chatsworth House, all within a 20 mile radius.


The heated, well maintained toilet block has controllable showers and some washbasins in cubicles. There is a bathroom for under 4s and facilities for disabled visitors (RADAR key). Washing machine and dryer. Small dog walking area. WiFi.

Nether Heage is 10 miles north of Derby, between Belper and Matlock. Turn east 1.7 miles south of Ambergate at campsite sign onto Broadholme Lane (sharp turn if approaching from north) and follow signs to site in 1 mile.
