    Can anyone recommend a camp site near Derbyshire?

    We're looking to go camping in Derbyshire in the summer. Somewhere we can cycle from & has tent pitches with electric hook-up points. A cafe/bar/shop on site or nearby would be good as would a play area.

    Does anyone have anywhere they would recommend?

    Obviously there are nice pubs and coffee shops too and in the peak district My parents just came back from Ashbourne the other day which is in central Derbyshire. Quite a bit to do too and also pretty.

    Tansley?

    Not sure what it's like as a site but it's pretty central to everywhere and a lovely village as well.

    I can't recommend anything personally because we have only camped in Derbsyhire without EHU. But for the cycling, you may want to consider being near the Tissington trail, High peak Trail or the Monsal trail which has just been opened. There's some info on cycling routes here http://www.visitpeakdistrict.com/see...cleroutes.aspx
    Been busy and got the start of a big clear out on ebay. Please take a look - it's like an Aladdin's cave!

    I've heard good things about Callow Top, near Ashbourne.

    We walked past one yesterday, near Birchover. No idea how good the campsite is, but it has alpacas! This may or may not be a selling point...

    I wonder if the Alpacas are noisy. I remember once camping & there was this loud mooing noise every day. We couldn't find the cows anywhere. It turned out to be rutting deer about half a mile away!

    They were all quiet yesterday, as they were munching on the grass. I've no idea what noise they make! I'm almost afraid to Google it!

    We stopped at one very near to Carsington Water, we found it to be quite central to lots of things. I can't remember the name but do recommend the area.
