This is a great place with fabulous views of beautiful countryside. When we arrived Sue realised we were booked in for the week earlier but still managed to sort us a pitch with hook up as requested. Our hook up lead wasnt long enough but we were quickly lent one, again thanks to helpful owners! The new shower block wasnt open yet but everyone seemed to manage with the old ones.

The onsite cafe opened at 7.30am and what a treat to have someone else cook for me for a change! Breakfast on a barm was delicious, so we cheated and went back the next day too!

We had a train trip into Hathersage which the kids loved and it was only a short stroll to the station. Many good local pubs, again only a walk away.

Yes, you can hear the trains but my advice would be; dont pitch at the top end of the field next to the track!

We shall definitely be going back.

One of the best sites I have been on ( been on a lotś ) The site was clean no rubbish , the new shower block is nearly ready (looks good) People keep commenting on the muddy toilet block , If you walk in your Shower with outdoor boots on , well say no more , the farmer and his family are helpful and friendly The cafe was clean and quite big , There are shops and bars in Hope not to far away, Over All I would recommend it to any one , I for one will be Back

Ps Easy to get to most Hills

This is an excellent site just as you are coming into Hope.

No frills and excellent value (8.00). One field for caravans and the other a camping field (there are some electric hook up points for you people that need power)

Outdoor pan washing point, Toilet Block and the new showers which were nearing completion will make a great improvement.

Plenty of room on the field for the kids to run around too.

Found it very convenient for the Castleton, Mam Tor and Edale what more could a walker/mountain biker need.

We almost booked Laneside Camping which is just on the main road near Hardhurst but we are very glad we did not as they were packed in like sardines and had many rules. !

We are definitely going back and using this camp site as a base.

Good Points - Cheapish at 12 per night, Great views, Relaxed site re children playing football etc, close to Hope & Castleton, cafe open in mornings on site.

Bad Points - Facilities are awful! - Dated & Dirty.

The toilet block was filthy (muddy/food etc on floor)& overflowing bins & no soap to wash your hands - we arrived Fri afternoon & it was not mopped until Sun pm.

One shower for females is just not enough - in addition it was grubby & smelly with hair & used plasters on the floor- not pleasant

The new shower block is still not ready but I wouldn't be convinced about the owners bothering to keep it clean anyway!

There are two sinks for washing up but the hot water did run out sometimes. There is nowhere at the sinks to put scraps etc so the drains and surrounding areas are full of bits of food. Also these sinks are out in the open so washing up in the rain is a frequent event - a lean to roof would be useful!

The bins were always overflowing

The electric hook ups were badly organised - there were a couple of arguments where too many users were using the same electric point & the farmer had to put splitters in.

This appears to be primarily geared up for walkers/backpackers doing 1 or 2 night stays. I wouldn't recommend it for a family holiday for a longer period.

We have been tent camping for over 15 years - these were the worst facilities we have ever seen. If you are going to this area - better/cleaner sites are nearby.

We won't be going back.

Stayed here on a one-night backpacking trip and have done so before.

A nice site, friendly and welcoming. The tent field is nice - being able to pitch where you like. Manchester - Sheffield trains run right by the site and are frequent (though not loud) during the day. Didn't notice any at night, though. The site itself was similarly quiet.

Toilets are quite dated now and, being on a farm, tend to get muddy. The new block (nearing completion when we were there) looks like it should improve things considerably.

Lovely base from which to tour the wonderful Hope Valley. The Travellers Rest pub, just around the corner, is also welcoming with a play area for the kids and does food and real ale. Shops are a bit more of a trek if you're on foot, but the site's cafe is good in the morning.

Smashing campsite in a great location. The owners were extremely helpful after we booked at the last minute. There is a small cafe which does great breakfasts at a good price.

A new toilet block is close to completion.

There is a pub just down the road, and Hope village is about 5 minutes cycle ride away. Important for us was the fact that Hope railway station is even closer. On Saturday, trains were every hour and you can easily get to edale, hathersage, grindlford or sheffield ( just under 30 minutes to sheffield). Bikes are carried free on the trains.
