Excellent campsite in a beautiful and peaceful location close to all the attractions of The Peak District. Spacious pitches with electric hook ups if required. Toilets, shower block and pot washing area all kept spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water throughout the day. Owners very pleasant and helpful - the useful telephone number list on the back of your... More

Booked up for a long weekend to visit friends that moved to the area. Amazed at the great value for money on offer at this site. Facilities were far better than we expected, the little touches like picnic tables and blocks for barbeque trays show that the owners care for the site and their guests stay. Everyone was very friendly... More

Washing up area and toilet/shower block kept immaculate by owners (shame the other campers didn't have the same standards) showers lovely with plenty of hot water which was great for me however this...

A party of two families with young children and ourselves first time campers we couldn't have wished for a better site, friendly welcome and excellent facilities. You can hire electric hookups if you don't own them and the lady we checked in with was very welcoming and friendly and recommended some local walks. The site has everything that you need... More

Went for a weekend camp, four in our party; two adults and two children (under 5's). They had different small fields with pitches separated by hedges. Some pitches with EHU some without. The site also had caravan and motorhome sections. Owners were really friendly and helpful. Eggs available on site and takeaway delivery if you want it!! Really really impressed... More

Camped here for 3 nights in May 2015 the site is great plenty of space well looked after very pleasant and helpful owners. The facilities were clean and all we needed without having to walk for ages. The weather was unseasonably cool and breezy but it didn't stop this being a good break. The local Pub is a little more... More

18 of us stayed here for two nights and we all agreed it was a brilliant site. Excellent showers; clean and modern. Spacious hook up for tents. Plenty of picnic tables. Owners were very welcoming and helpful. Nice countryside surrounding and good local walks to Matlock. Owner recommended The Gate in Tansley, when we asked for a local pub. The... More
