This is a great campsite, one of the best I have been to in a long time. 
The pitch prices are Cheap and so are the prices in the on-site cafe which does brilliant cooked breakfast.
It is only a short walk from Hope Train Station and is very quiet.  There is a lot of wildlife, you will find your self watching birds flying about and we also had a visit from a hedgehog. 
I will be going again soon

Lovely owners, make you feel very welcome. Cafe is great for a bit of pre-climbing hot grub! The train line does run right next to one side of the campsite and the one shower can be busy and grubby. But overall, very cheap, good location, great cafe and quiet at night.

We have just returned from a stay at Hardhurst Farm over the Bank Holiday weekend. We stayed for Saturday and Sunday night in tents and bought 2 cars along. Despite the fact it was Bank Holiday the campsite was not overcrowded by any means. It was apparently full booked but we had plenty of space in the second field to park cars and set up camp. This was nice compared to other sites where we have been shunted and squeezed between neighbouring tents.
The rates were extremely reasonable at £7.00 per tent + car per night. Facilities at this campsite are basic, but quite enough for the no-frills experience. The ladies toilets were clean and functional, a full length mirror plus a space at the end with a table for either baby changing or putting your stuff onto while you get ready. They are not too far to walk either!
Although we didn't find it to be a problem, there is only 1 shower at this campsite for males and females each. My experience of the ladies shower was ok. It was always very hot water and there is plenty of room to get ready (although you do feel rushed because often there are people waiting). However the only not very nice thing about the shower was the floor, it was filthy and covered in hair - yuck! There is a mop and bucket outside but the water in it was dirtier than the floor. I think the owners would do well to place some matting down in there, ladies bring flip flops!
The campsite is surrounded by beautiful scenery. Win Hill, which a great viewing point once you reach the top, sits behind the campsite. Nearby Hathersage is a nice village and I would recommend a meal at the Scotsmans Pack - drive to the Sheffield side of the village and take a left (its signposted).
Overall I would definitely recommend this campsite to anyone for a great value, simple camping experience.

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 is quite 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 can build up at 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.)
