We stayed at Hardhurst Farm for 6 nights over Easter 2007 in our tent.

Downsides -- they are right next to the train line. The ladies shower (only one) is shabby.

Upsides -- they are quite inexpensive compared to other campsites. The owners are lovely. There is a tea shop that's open 5 mornings a week with very reasonably priced breakfasts. They're within easy walking distance of a pub. If you come on the train, they're about a 15 minute walk from Hope train station. Free showers with plenty of hot water.

Overall -- would definitely stay there again. We chose them this Easter because we had some extra kids with us and couldn't really afford to stay anywhere else. But we had a great time and enjoyed being there. I understand they're converting one of their farm buildings into better showers which will be a great improvement.

Visited Hardhurst Farm along with another family and had a wonderful time. The facilities are basic but it is a farm so you should expect nothing else. The shower was fine, hot and powerful, we did not need to queue and the toilets were clean-just muddy floors which is not surprising since they are in the farmyard.
This is a great cheap and cheerful site with a super little breakfast cafe which is handy if you need a quick getaway. The kids loved it- small so they could run about safely and never be too far away. Loos are never too far away so you don't need to worry when you need to go at three am and there is enough light in the farmyard to find your way easily.
Train did not bother us at all- we would not have even noticed it if it were not for the kids waving at it every time it passed!
The Traveller's Rest is two minutes walk away and is lovely- nice beer garden and play things for kids but be aware that they do not serve food on a Sunday evening!

I have visited this site over twenty times over the past ten years. It has always been attractive due to its very low prices, although they have introduced a new price structure which now means that you pay by tent size as well as by occupancy so it is now less cheap for families and larger tents. The site is ideally located just outside Hope and isquite basic . It has a number of hook ups in the main field and some recently introduced hard standing area's. The toilet and shower facilities are basic and are a struggle for owners to keep clean at times, with only one shower per sex queues canbuild upat busy times. In recent years booking for Bank Holidays has become vital. However out of peak season it tends to be quiet with only the main field open, this field is nice and flat with tents being generally placed on one edge and caravans in the centre with the hookups.The other edges of the field are taken up by long term caravan pitches.There is a mobile home on site which I believe is available for hire. At busy times they shoo the sheep out of the second field to provide more tent space. Again a nice flat field. The site is compact so you are never far from the central facilities and the welcome is always pleasant. There is now a cafe on site which is open in the mornings and the Travellers Rest pub down the end of lane is a short stagger for good food and drink (booking is recommended for food at the weekends to avoid disappointment.)

Stayed on the site for two nights in February, in a friends motor caravan. Found the site very pleasant. Laval site with good hard standing for the van. The people who were running the site were very relaxed and made you feel most welcome. I found the toilet block to be very good for the site. The shower in the gents was particuarly well set out and easy to use. Very pleasant stay with plenty to see and do in just a short bike ride away. Nice not to have to move the van. I very very much look forward to going back in the summer.

This is a great place if you want to meet up and go green laning in derbyshire very landrover friendly , the toilet block is a bit of a let down especially for the wife and children but it should'nt bother you guys. Did'nt notice the train to much never had time to see the pub and they did'nt mind me carring out wheel change as long as you respect the other campers.

Aftertrying 20 other campsites in Derbyshire and being told they were all fully booked I was amazed we got a pitch on this campsite during the August Bank Holiday.Onreading previous reviews I wasn't expecting much but this campsite is fab. Lovely owners, cafe on site and nice pub with a small play area for kids just a couple of mins walk away. We had a spot on the caravan field which was close enough tothe toilets, shower and washing up facilities, yetstill private andsheltered under some trees.Relaxed and chilled atmosphere, it made a nice change not to be bombarded with rules and regulations on arrival.Toilets block was fine and showerok too. This is on it's own, in a separate building and I found 5pm was around the quietest time to use it. The trains do go past occasionallybut the cute ducks that waddle around your tent/caravan make up for that! We will definitely be going back.
