We spent three nights in our caravan at this site. Was great, love underfloor heating in showers. Was clean and tidy. Great dog walking area. Was handy for us to visit our family, perfect for them to join us for a meal in the caravan. Will definitely be back.

MASSIVE shout out to Rivendale and their staff! Me and my partner came for a stay in the bridal suite as it was genuinely the only room left at short notice. And it was just gorgeous. The views were spectacular and your staff couldn't do enough for us. However. .. I'm urged to write this after reading the 'bad' reviews...

Excellent accommodation, double bed, bunk bed with bedding. Wood burning stove, oil fuel radiator, 6 electric sockets bed side cabinets everything required for glamping, Showers/toilets block spotless, laundry on site, clean and very well kept site. Staff in cafe, restaurant and reception very friendly and helpful. Reason for not giving 5/5 is wood purchased from shop too big for wood...

Thanks for your review - sorry about the wood, we usually stack them separately in the shop for fire pits where size is not an issue & stoves where it is. We are currently in the process of installing a superior broadband service - the problem is BT Openreach's service in the rural areas of Derbyshire - which would be...

We arrived home yesterday after what can only be described as a fake Glastonbury weekend! As being one of the only four tents on the site, we were allocated a pitch near to the entrance, in front of a large man made hill (great for blocking the wind). When we arrived the Friday night, we didn't realise how bad the...

Thank you for your review. The pitches were all repaired and reseeded at the end of last year, and did not feature any expanse of mud or soil, prior to your arrival - but it is inevitable that trampling around on wet grass even putting the tent up will result in mud. It is unfortunately very difficult to be aware...

Folks we have just come back from a few days staying with you, a short notice choice as we have to confess to not normally using commercially owned sites. On arrival a nice clear direction to the pitch, by two lovely ladies with big smiles. We weren't disappointed the setting in a disused quarry is spectacular and provided shelter from...

Gregpotter, Manager at Rivendale Caravan & Leisure Park, responded to this review

Thanks for your constructive observations. Grass is a problem because, despite re-seeding in autumn with special seed that germinates in cool weather, it only takes one person to drive over it whilst siting their unit, to completely trash it when its wet before the next person arrives. Thus a pitch can be fine on Friday when booked - and trashed...

Spotted the roadside sign for a café so stopped for afternoon tea. Really pleasant staff & good food and drink at reasonable cost - pot of tea, a cider, two slices of pecan pie for £9.85. Well recommended.

This was my second visit to the site. A very well laid out site with plenty of facilities, clean and user friendly. We enjoyed a lovely meal in the bar and used the nearby Tissington Trail for a nice long bike ride. Although site is in a disused quarry we managed to get a great signal for the TV. Only...

Not a great place if your looking good for a quiet holiday or have young children. There was a very large teenage birthday party, very noisy going on till late at night. Reminded me of Haven type holiday resorts which we didn't expect. If you like haven type holiday you'll like it. If your looking good for a quiet family...

Thank you for your comments. I guess late at night is subjective, but the majority of the revelry occurred in the Ecospa during the afternoon, it did not include music at any time, and the noise curfew was enforced as usual. Any site that welcomes families is capable of accumulating a dozen 12 year old girls around the play area...

Called for lunch whilst driving past. Guests do not have to be staying on site. Smashing small Cafe, Dad said it was best omelette he'd ever had. Our coffee was brilliant, very good barista, all in all I recommend this place to campers and passing traffic. Lovely

A generally very nice place. The timber pods are very cosy, and have a woodburning stove that can be used for cooking. A shame they don't supply pots or pans, or tell you they don't. The previous occupants had kindly left half drunk bottles of coke, wine and milk, and the cleaning staff thoughtfully left them for us, along with...
