We stayed last weekend, as two families, we were put on pitches next to each other. Finding the site is easy, well signposted, great location and beautiful surroundings.
On arrival, the online refund was duly given, you just need to make sure you have a print out as they need this for their records. I was shown the pitch by a helpful chap, who explained everything about the site and the local area, we felt very welcome.
The facilities were well attended, bar and shop were well stocked and reasonably priced, although saying that, the cheapest bottle of white wine in the bar was £11 (to take out) - the shop didn't sell alcohol.
The pitches are pretty close together, and you can park your car in front of your tent, but I do agree with some of the other reviewers, you do feel quite packed in.
The first evening was a lovely clear night, and many were having bbqs and sitting out enjoying the evening. There were an awful lot of children, but, summer holidays - what do you expect? A little control perhaps, but some of the adults had worse behaviour!
To say it was loud and rowdy would be an understatement. We went to bed at about 11pm. At 12.30am, I rang the campsite Head Office to see if anyone could come and shut people up a bit! At 2.30am, they were still going....I was beside myself and finally drifted off. At 6.50am, no word of a lie they were back up, shouting, crying, screaming....
The family who were the worst offenders persistently had a dog who kept getting loose, running off, attacking other dogs, and so by the Saturday night I had enough and complained to the warden who did agree to do a walkabout about 10pm, but he didn't say anything to them. Thankfully it was raining that night, so they retreated into their tents and were much quieter than the night before and we all got some zzzzzzzzzz.
We loved the location and the site itself, and would be happy to return, just maybe outside of the main holidays.
Bakewell is lovely, and we visited The Bulls Head and The Ashford Arms, both of which were excellent.

I stayed at Greenhills with my son and a bunch of friends for a long weekend.
The site, the facilities and the location are all great...
We took the dog and it was ideal...an enclosed dog walk and plenty of dog bins..
The only downside was that one night we were aloud to take the dog in the bar and the next night we weren't...
As the British weather is so unpredictable we had lovely sunshine and then torrential rain!!..So it would have been better had we been aloud to sit in and have a beer after a long trek around the peaks..
Apart from this we had a great time and booked an extra night...

All in all a great site....And will deffo be going there again!!

Room Tip: Very clean facilities and very close to Bakewell, Ashton, Monsel Head.

My first time camping and we originally booked to stay for 3 nights we got there and thought it looked quite cute and cosy, Told them we possibly may book another night (spoke to the manager) he looked and said it was fine if we did book it wouldn't be a problem would mean shifting a few other bookings in the future around.

Well we booked another night on not a problem no fuss.

Me and my partner are a young couple and yes there was kids on the site running around and being a little nosy but start of the summer holidays what do you expect? but they was not a problem everyone was friendly all of them stuck to the curfew.

Little shop was good reasonably priced had majority of things in there such as towels etc and toys for kids, all tho the opening hours were varied open early in a morning and a few hours on a evening, if you went to the shop and want a paper they order them the night before and collect them from down town so make sure your first night if you want a paper you order one when you arrive.

There was a cute little bar on site feels like a pub when you go in could not fault it i read some of the reviews on the site in regards to the price's, that day i went to a well known pub chain and ordered a round a drink for me and a drink for my partner it came to £6.40 i ordered the same round at the pub on site and it was £6.60 personally a 20 pence difference is nothing considering these days they could easily charge double as there is nothing around for a mile.

staff were helpful friendly the amenities such as showers always cleaned nothing wrong could not fault this campsite absolutely loved it! highly recommended and i tell everyone about it all the time! will be staying again!

We stayed at this campsite for 2 nights in late July, and perhaps this explains the noise, as there were lots of children. The showers and toilets and shop facilities were faultless, as was the lovely location, however, if you are wanting a quite camp site and not to be woken up by children at 6.30am in the morning, then this camp site may not be your cup of tea. It would be good to stay here during mid week term time. This camp site is geared for families with children, therefore, it would make a fab stay for a family with children. Also, the tent pitches were too close for comfort, we felt tightly packed with the surrounding campers, ok for some, but we thought it took away from the overall camping experience.

An absolutely lovely campsite. We were a group of 2 families, so 4 adults and 4 children under 7. Big field with goals for ball games, 2 great little playgrounds, dog walking area, well-stocked shop. Showers and toilets cleaned regularly and even a free hairdryer. The 11pm quiet time curfew was pretty much followed by all our fellow campers, it does seem to be quite a quiet campsite. Make sure you take some cash though as the shop only takes cash and there are no cash machines on site.

We spent last weekend at Greenhills and as first time campers i can say that this site exceeded all expectations! The pitch was perfect, very spacious with lovely scenery. There were nearby water taps located around the camp, a lovely little pub, shop and very clean toilets and showers with a hairdryer! There is a washing up area and a freezer for your ice packs so we had everything we needed! There are 2 parks for the kids, one for under 5's and one for under 12's that kept my daughter entertained along with a playing field for football, sports etc....The camp site was very quiet at night and i found everyone there very friendly. Bakewell is a short walk away and it a quaint little market town with lovely cafes and boutique shops and lots of nice pubs. I would definitely go back!

Cannot fault this park. Camped for 2 nights and its the best camp site we have been too, fantastic facilities, clean and good location. We will definately be returning in the near future. Kids loved the play area and adults liked the bar plus a convenient shop for essentials.
