    Me n Chelle went Saturday lunchtime for the night, lovely site in superb scenery, really relaxing location.

    Cost was £22.50 for the night with hook up and awning, which we didn't think was too bad - the campsite itself was well laid out, facilities where kept immaculate, we loved it!

    We went for a walk up to the Nine Ladies Stone Circle, Matlock is in the distance, Birchover is surrounded by some superb scenery :)

    We went for a meal in The Druid Inn, which had some very good locally brewed beers on draught, well worth popping in!

  15. Ive lived close by all my life, work in sight of the hill where the stones are for 18 years. never been up there before, we was amazed how peaceful it is. We take it all for granted!
