Haytop Country Park, the land that time forgot, a retreat from worries and woes.
We have been coming here for about 14 years, first as beginners in middle age but now as owners of a caravan.
This place is a haven for wildlife and OAP's alike.
It is a joy to wake up to bird song whether in a tent or caravan.
The scenery is awe inspiring in all seasons and enjoyed by all ages from children to us.
It is an ideal location as many places of interest are well within travelling distance for days out, we love it Barney and Lindsey

Been coming here for the last 9 years, first in our tourer, then bought a static caravan.
The site is beautiful, has wonderful views, a stream running through it and the river derwent, great for canoeing and fishing.
The toilets and showers are immaculate and Sarah is always on hand for any help and advice.
Accessible to many tourist spots like Matlock, Cromford, Crich tramway museum and Carsington water all no more than 15 minute drive.
Great walk through Shining cliff woods (adjacent to site) leading to pub on other side to quench your thirst and back to site via canal walk.
A short walk brings you to Whatstandwell railway station from which you can get anywhere via Derby and Nottingham.
Love it, John and Pat Shaw and all the family

Have had a caravan on Haytop Country Park for near on 10 years now.
To sit in our caravan enjoying the peace and beautiful surroundings the park offers is our idea of heaven, nowhere else could you find such scenery and abundance of wildlife Sue and Mick Shearer

I bought our static ay Haytop 3 years ago, at the time we did not know if we had done the right thing as Haytop did not have a very good reputation on the internet.
Now we are glad and happy, the site has changed for the better and the manager is very helpful and friendly.
I would recommend haytop to any of my friends which I have and they also purchased statics on the site.
Happy vanning Sue and Ken Spreckley

My partner And I stumbled across Haytop park 16 years ago.
We fell in love with this little gem of a place and are still coming to this day and hope to do so for many years to come.
The park is well run, maintained and clean.
Everyone we have met here will live long in our hearts, friendly and happy memories.
To wake in the morning and see the natural beauty is wonderful, Buzzards soaring and birds singing, such a wild and wonderful place is very rare.
Mel and Bob, happy campers

My family and I have enjoyed 15 years of peace, community spririt and the rejuvenating atmosphere of being amid beautiful countryside.
We watch the various colourful birds , squirrels the occasional badger.
Its my bit of paradise greenery, beautiful views.
Chestnut, Birch, Oak, Sycamore, Holly etc.
If you need to socialise at night there are places quite close but no club on site.
I have passed my 3 score years plus ten and hope I can enjoy my bit of eden for a few more years.

We have been coming here for years.
Its only half an hour from our home yet its like entering a different world as soon as we reach the entrance.
Such a beautiful and tranquil place, everyone here is so friendly and Sarah is brilliant making sure our stay here is perfect.
Waking up beside the river and stunning scenery is every fishermans dream.
We cant praise this place enough.
If your looking for peace and quiet away from the 'real' world, this is the place to be.
We are looking forward to many more years camping here.

I have been coming to Haytop Country Park for many years, first being brought camping by my parents as a child and have made many visits over the years.
My husband and I now enjoy having a caravan on site and visit as often as we can.
If you are looking for a peaceful retreat in a beautiful location with wildlife all about, this place is perfect.
Its a wonderful location for visiting many local attractions around Derbyshire, there is always something to see and do.
There are plenty of beautiful walks to enjoy, a handy train station just outside and many lovely pubs to visit.
You will always find a warm Welcome.

We first came to Haytop with a touring caravan 20 years ago and fell in love with the place, until on one of our visits 11 years now, a static came up for sale and we just had to buy it.
Most weekends are spent watching the abundance of birds and wildlife, and now with a new manager helping Mr George it has become a well run and friendly carefree atmosphere.

Wonderful.........
We had heard of this site for a few years and eventually managed to get a pitch in February 2015.
What a wonderful place, open all year round and such friendly people and helpful management.
It already feels like home from home and we hope to be coming here for several years.
Fantastic scenery, walks and even fishing for those who like it.
Close to many places of interest, couldn't ask for anymore, so relaxing even a couple of nights feels like a break for a week, fantastic!
Heres to many happy holidays

A peaceful tranquil site with like minded people.
River frontage, woodland walks, close to cromford canal and local rail link to matlock.
Well managed and well maintained, with a number of recent improvements.
we have been enjoying the site for 20 years and had first a tourer and then a static caravan weve had for the last 11 years.
We feel very lucky to be able to enjoy this idyllic location all year round Nick and Sally Peck

We love coming to Haytop Country Park because it is so relaxing with nice woodland walks or even by the river.
It is a dog friendly site.
It is also close to local attractions.

Haytop has been our weekend retreat and home away from home for three years now.
Its our oasis of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of everyday lives.
The staff are accessible and accommodating with friendly attitudes to everyone at all times.

We have been visiting this site for many years, bringing our children when they were little and have had an annual pitch for the last 4 years.
This is a friendly, non commercialised site in lovely surroundings and run by manager Sarah, who offers everyone a warm welcome and is always around if anyone needs her.
Very central for visiting the beautiful areas of Dernyshire.
Everyone very friendly.........Including the new additions to the site, George and Hetty the 2 goats who are walked everyday stopping off for treats along the way.
Would highly recommend this site to anyone Karen and Lee

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just got back from a wonderful stay at Haytop country park camp site at Whatstandwell, we oringinally booked in for a 4 night stay but enjoyed it that much we stayed a total of 8 nights in the end.
Sarah who manages the site is very helpful and keeps the site lovely and she has done a great job in upgrading the toilets.
This is a beautiful, peaceful and secure site and we will definately be going back for a longer visit Elaine and Steve

It is hard to believe we have had a caravan here for nearly 9 years!!
We have watched the trees grow and yes they do interfere with the tv especially when it rains!!
This is thanks to Mr George who said "NO TARMAC AND LET THE GRASS GROW A BIT"
One of his remarks to us was "you come here to relav not work" and this we do, his advice is still good, he enjoyed it and we still do.
This is a beautiful little corner of unspoilt Derbyshire with friendly people and very helpful management A very happy Mr and Mrs Dobney
