It is behind the Shrewsbury Arms public house on the edge of the Cheshire village of Little Budworth and has received good reviews from other DA's that have camped here. Please come along and join our friendly group and take a gentle walk through the leafy countryside, there are no mountains here so forget that bit, or take a cycle ride along the local lanes.

A return visit for us to this wonderfully situated site overlooking Tansley and Matlock in the Derbyshire hills. This is an excellent area for walking, again without any mountains nearby, just rambling in the hills will be on the programme, as usual for us cycle rides depend on who is camping during the weekend and may be arranged on the day by those present.

This is our end of season meet and we have the use of the village hall for our usual supper on Saturday evening. Again this is in excellent, easy walking country and not far from the Tissington cycle trail on which you can go to Ashbourne or if feeling more energetic towards Buxton and Middleton Top on the High Peak Trail. There is a village pub just over the road and a bus service runs through the village on the Buxton to Ashbourne route.
