Priestfield Grange, New Year Visit

Not perfect, but out of the 200+ CLs that we've used over the years we've not yet found our perfect one, and although it's well over 100mls from home, this is the site we keep returning to. It has 5 H/S pitches with EHU, and although the pitches aren't the largest and do slope a little they are more than adequate for a car and Caravan or a Motorhome. Those wanting to erect an awning would have to put it on the grass, but the pitches are well spread out, so there's plenty of room. The site is nice and quiet being located a couple of miles from the A619 Chesterfield/Baslow road, on a lane that is a bus route, and has a wide entrance. An hourly bus sevices goes to Chesterfield one way and Bakewell the other and can be flagged down from the entrance. There is both a ladies and gents toilet, information cabin, the usual recycling facilities and TV, phone and WiFi reception are good. For those with dogs there are acres of fields where you can walk, free of both cattle and sheep, and there's a footpath that leads directly down to the 3 Linacre Reservoirs with their hard tracks. There are a number of other footpaths and bridleways close by and many places of interest within a short drive....Chatsworth and Haddon Hall to the west, Bolsover Castle and Harwick Hall to the east. For those that like longer walkers or bike rides the N/T's Longshaw Estate, and the gritstone ridges of Curbur, Frogget, Burbage and Stanage lie to the north west. We've found the owners, Jeff & Pat, to be both friendly and helpful. We will certainly continue to use this site year on year.
