spent the week here while we climbed and walked in the Peak District. Lovely little campsite next to the river. The staff were very friendly. The toilets could do with being a little more cleaner but that's being picky. Great for just pitching up and you can walk straight onto the Pennine way, only a few hundred meters away.

I visited here for the nights of 27 and 28 Feb 2015. The good: friendly staff. Location - five minutes walk to two pubs and a railway station. Easy access to Mam Tor etc. The bad: repairs were in progress. I can only comment on the male facilities. Only one of three showers worked. No instructions and cold water only... More

I have been staying at this campsite for many years, as it provides a fantastic location for walking, as well as the added bonus of being situated very close to the local pubs... When it comes down to choosing between this campsite and Coopers, up the road I would say it it pretty close. The differences being price and the... More

Stayed here for 1 night Sept 14 - average campsite . Has a small car park which they could manage better . It was apparantly full but could've easily taken another 3 or 4 cars so we had to park in Edale main car park where there is ample parking . This site could do with offering Wifi from the... More

A great campsite for exploring the dark peaks. Situated in the centre of Edale and surrounded by hills. Pitches flat and split over several fields with one area located in trees next to a stream - very picturesque. As campsite is split up this feels like a small site. Limited car parking onsite (for additional cost). All kit must be... More

I haven't been camping very much since I was a child but I bit the bullet bought a tent and took my grandaughter to Edale for a few days. I can't compare Fieldhead to other campsites but compared to my childhood experiences this site was heaven. We were given a warm welcome and invited to wander around the site to... More

This place was a shambles. We stayed here for the weekend in early august. The men's wash room was a disgrace: there was no hand washing/drying facilities for the toilets. The urinals spilled onto the floor. Also, the showers blocked and flooded onto the floors. There was no cleaning carried out all weekend by the site administration. In short, this... More

First of all I don't understand some of the previous complaints regarding this campsite. IT'S A CAMPSITE NOT A HOTEL. It's facilities include a pot wash area and separate mens/womens toilets and showers. All are very clean and monitored daily although a little dated. The campsite itself is excellent, level grounded with 3 fields to choose from, 2 of which... More

This campsite is well situated in Edale and only a few minutes walk from major routes and walks, Edale train station and pubs and cafe's which is a bonus. You never get fussed over by the site owners which is great too. Sadly this campsite is not what it used to be and it's getting worse. We have stopped here... More

As a individual person who has camped around different campsites around the UK this was far down at the bottom with some others. Me and my 2 other friends went for 2 nights in the countryside and when we arrived we were greeted with a nice warm welcome off the lady at the desk got pitched up and everything was... More
