The site is situated halfway between Buxton and Ashbourne at the junction of the A515 and A5012 opposite the Newhaven Hotel and Newhaven Garage.
The Peak District provides an ideal centre for touring the National Park. It lies in a secluded dip in the hills prolifically planted with trees and shrubs to provide a sheltered park for tents, touring caravans and motor vans. The whole site is meticulously maintained to a very high standard from the spotless ablution blocks to the neatly trimmed grass.
The site shop stocks a complete range of goods including groceries, books and magazines, toys, souvenirs and fresh local dairy produce. A selection of caravan accessories are available and there are exchange facilities for both Calor and Camping Gas. Dogs on leads are very welcome but are excluded from the shop and toilet blocks. The two excellent ablution blocks provide hot showers at no extra cost, deep sinks for clothes washing and outside sinks for pots. In addition there is a coin operated laundry, drying and ironing facilities adjoining a small playroom with amusement machines.
Two large play areas are provided with swings, climbing frame and large sandpit. Seats are placed around the site for use whilst keeping an eye on the children or simply watching the world go by.
Carriages restaurant and the Newhaven Garage are adjacent to the site. The Newhaven hotel is currently being renovated.
