Thank you for your review and kind remarks about the cleanliness of the loos. There is (usually) some signal on O2, but usually none on Vodaphone & T Mobile. There is, however, loads to do in this area; on the one hand walking, cycling, fishing climbing, sailing and outdoor things - but also places to visit like Chatsworth, Gulliver' Kingdom,... More

Stayed in a yurt with a heater, not that you'd know it had a heater as the lack of insulation meant it was still practically like sleeping outside- not fun when it's snowing outside. So £40 a night for a freezing cold shed seemed a bit excessive- when complained was told that they were perfectly justified for charging this much... More

This lady booked as part of a group - but over the internet. The bookings were under different names, so we had no inkling it was a group until they arrived. As luck would have it, the computer allocated the reviewer a Yurt away from her friends, so she came to reception and asked to be moved to an empty... More

I would just like to say how great this campsite really is. Me, my partner and the dog stayed in a Pod and my parents stayed in the B&B. Reception - helpful as ever - even when we wanted to change to another preferred pod that we had stayed in before - no problem at all :-) Toilet block -... More

Always stay in the bridal suite at Rivendale after cycling around the Peaks, room is of a excellent standard with stunning views.Underfloor heating is a luxury touch and for road biking its positioned in a great place.Only moan is the comunial door when left to close on its own can be very loud.

We stayed for a week and we enjoyed our stay, as the staff where friendly and the site was clean. The showers, toilets ect where all together and easy to access, it was very smart however the CCTV made us feel uncomftorble. The only down points was being under the cliff. Because we hada few problems with falling sheep! We... More

Thank you for pointing out the falling sheep hazard prevalent in the Peak District. Fortunately, we copied the Caravan Club site at Grin Low and constructed a substantial safety embankment with a "moat" on the cliff-ward side to catch any falling stones, sheep or flying pigs base jumping from the hillside above. There is a fence on the top with... More

We as a family of 4 stayed here for 1 week. The site is beautiful and relaxing. There was an 11 o'clock rule that was obeyed. The site is clean and tidy with the pitches clearly marked out. It's in the heart if the Peak District and the only noise you will find is the birds. The toilets were heated... More

Just got back home a day earlier than planned. We are a young family with a dog staying on touring pitch. The pitches are quite small once awning has been set up and the electric hook up was faulty to has to plug into next door. There was a tiny park which had two swings. Not very much to keep... More

Thank you for your kind words about our staff. Unfortunately, the safety trip switches on hook ups can fail at any time without warning, so we can only deal with that problem as it occurs. The CCTV systems around the park are primarily there for the protection of our guests (particularly children) - post all the horrible things that have... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you liked the park and the benefits of the camping Pods - and express my sincere apologies for the abysmal service you experienced in the café. Unfortunately we had staff off sick and the staff cover left a lot to be desired. I am surprised at your comments about the prices though... More
