General

  • Uninterrupted views of the Pennine landscape
  • Pitches and glamping pods available
  • Local area features a great selection of local pubs

Enjoy an uninterrupted view of the striking Pennine landscape at friendly family-owned .

The park has pitches for tourers and campers with some rather photogenic views available just across the nearby reservoir. If glamping is more your style, you can watch the sun go down over the sweeping moors from the deck of your comfortable glamping pod. Get cosy and sleep soundly with no worries about what the weather might do while you catch your forty winks.

is conveniently located in an area bursting with good old fashion country pubs, with the closest just down the road in the village of Denshaw. Guests can look forward to some top notch grub and selection of ales.

    Everything I went as a surprise for my boyfriends 30th they helped me keep everything quiet and even hidden the logs I baught for the fire. She was so welcoming and friendly and made me feel at home I will be staying there again very soon. Even with the coldness inside had a heater and kept us warm through the night and view was beautiful in the morning we was welcomed with cows and sheep and rabbits it was beautiful watching the sunset and rise. Loved my stay here.

Excellent clean quiet site, basic facilities with spectacular views 28/06/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom paul_t272192 Confirmed

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    If you're looking for a basic and quiet location with spectacular views, this is for you.

    The facilities are basic but you have everything you need toilets, showers, water point, elsan point, laundry machine and appeared to have recently be refurbished so they are of a good clean standard. I loved the security. The only access is by a key fob for the electric barrier, so it gave me peace of mind that my caravan would still be there on my return from a day out.

    Good geographical position for branching off in any direction!
    My Wife and I will be revisiting this site

    Disliked: 

    The access road from the access barrier up to the pitches is very steep and narrow. So if you have a small engined tow vehicle or a large caravan, this could proved problematic! But because of the layout of the land and the permanent residencies, there is not really a solution to that.
