    Great site in a area of stunning natural beauty. All facilities are well kept and have recently undergone renovations so it all looks really clean and tidy. Staff were all really friendly and willing to help out with directions to local amenities. We would definitely return.

    Decided to take my family for a nice weekend away.

    Due to unforeseen circumstances we were late arriving. We arrived 30 minutes late and was greeted by a lady that told us although we had booked were late and that we should have called.

    We did try to call 8 times which went to voicemail. The Lady (Who I think was the Manager) was very rude even though I was very apologetic.

    It was dark I had my Wife and 2 young daughters in the car with nowhere to go. I could not have even done that to my enemy.

    We headed towards Buxton and stumbled upon Lime trees caravan park who were amazing. They said that 7pm they close but said that they were more than happy to allow us to stay and the Warden even helped me set up.

    I am sure that if Newhaven were not doing so well in terms of business they would have been more than grateful for our custom. Just because they are busy the Customer is no longer important.

    Do not give this site your custom I was absolutely disgusted with the way we were treated.

Well-maintained, welcoming and extremely friendly! 19/08/2016

    We were warmly welcomed by Paul and his lovely wife who were very accommodating and went out of their way to make us, and our children, feel at home. The quiet and relaxing site is spaced out with a variety of well-kept pitches, we were even asked if we would like full or partial sun! The toilet and shower facilities were always available and cleaned to a high standard. The little shop had all essentials and more. This site is perfectly situated with access to many picturesque walks and bike rides. I can thoroughly recommend this site and we will definitely be returning.

    First impressions were very good. On entering the caravan park you drive up a tree lined road to the shop where you book in. One of the wardens asked if we wanted to unhitched the caravan and they would site it for us, which we did. Not only did they site it they got out a spirit level and got it perfectly level for us, a great start.

    There are three levels to this park, the top level is for static caravans and where the shop is situated. The shop stocks essentials like bacon, eggs, a good supply of fresh duck eggs, bread, milk, wine & beer. There is a laundry room, a tourist information room along with a toilet/shower block and a small play area for the younger ones.

    The middle level is on a slope and is for tourers, motorhomes and tents with a few statics around one edge.

    The lower level is a flat area also for tourers, motorhomes and tents. There is a second toilet/shower block here and a second play area for the young ones. The swings have been recently refurbished and a deep layer of bark on the ground for anyone falling off the swings. There is a small field with goal posts and a small wooded area where my grandson spends most of his time climbing trees and falling into nettles. He soon learned what Dot leaves are for. There is an undercover dishwash area which was kept spotless. There is a cordoned off area with plenty of bins all marked up for recycling.

    The site itself is kept immaculately clean and tidy and the grass is kept short.
    We found all the wardens running the site to be very helpful.

    Both toilet blocks were cleaned twice a day and were kept in a very clean condition. There was plenty of hot water for the showers with no time restrictions on them.

    Dogs are allowed on site but must be kept on a lead at all times.
    Riding bikes and scooters along with ball games are restricted to the lower levels only.

    There is a bar/restaurant a few hundred yards from the main entrance and a petrol station/shop next door to that. Just up the road there is a farm butchers which is well worth a visit.

    If you are looking for a quiet relaxing site then I can highly recommend this one.
