Site Review: Derbyshire | Aston Heath Farm CL - by Sandra

Aston Heath Farm is a 5 van Certified Location for the Caravan and Motorhome Club. It also offers bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation. It is located about 1.5 mile off the A50 between Uttoxeter and Derby. Care is required in the last half mile as the road narrows but there are passing places.

dsc_1240The CL has a mixture of level grass pitches with electric hook-ups, and some hard standing, fully serviced pitches, however these are narrow, and awnings are a tight fit. Rubbish and recycling bins are by the entrance to the gate to the field. There is a unisex toilet and shower room, (small charge for use of shower) and is at just before the field gate on your right as you pass the farm buildings. The chemical disposal point is situated outside the toilet/shower room. The field and facilities are well kept and the owners are available and helpful if required.

There are pleasant farm field views to two sides and there is little discernible road noise given its proximity to the A50.

Nearest petrol station is on the A38 towards Lichfield. This site makes an excellent and central base on its own but equally is an excellent overnight stop point. Local attractions include, Sudbury Hall & Museum of Childhood, Kedleston Hall, Calke Abbey, National Memorial Arboretum, National Brewery Centre and Alton Towers, to name but a few.
