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.

Spent a few days at this site with my teenage daughter. Very nice surroundings and camp owners are very friendly. Toilet/shower/dish washing blocks are all clean, a little dated perhaps but all work very well. There is an on site cafe but no shop. A short walk down the lane brings you to a very nice country pub which serves meals, whilst a 15 min walk into hope village gives you a Spar, post office ATM and a couple more pubs and restaraunts.

All in all a very pleasant site at reasonable prices. Will return again very soon.

I have been at this campsite since I was about 10 years old and I liked it every time I now take my family to the same place and thay think its great as well I have even told most of my friends about this place. I would recommend it to anybody and they do a great breakfast in the morning we are going this year for as many times as possible.There is a lot of places to go to from this site. YOU HAVE TO GO ITS GREAT FUN.

We had a great stay here. The views were stunning and there was a no-fuss feel to everything. Booking in was easy, there was plenty of space and it was flat and easy to pitch.

It did get busy on the Saturday and I was worried that it was going to be a noisy night but everyone heeded the no noise after 11pm rule and there were no problems.

Yes, the toilet floors were muddy but they worked and had toilet paper, so no real problems.

I would definitely stay here again, there was easy access to the sights, a pub in easy reach, a great little cafe and surrounded by amazing countryside - a perfect weekend!

Hardhurst Farm campsite is on a quiet country road just off the main road to castleton from Hope. There is a pub about a 5 minute walk from the campsite, although we never actually went into it, it seemed a nice place. The shops are about 1/2 mile from the campsite and the spar is open until 10 most nights. There is also a Chinese just after the Spar down the the road a bit. There is also a chipshop in Castleton but it closes at 6pm.

I was a bit worried about the train noise after reading about the line that runs alongside the campsite, but once we were there and after the first few trains had gone by, we hardly noticed them at all during the stay, we got used to them rattling along.

The campsite facilities are a little basic, there is a toilet block for both men and women, but there is only a single shower for men and women to use and the menís shower is in the menís toilets. There is a cafeť onsite but it is only open in the mornings. There is also 2 sinks for washing pots in and also a drinking tap to fill up water containers.

The prices for camping are reasonable, we had 3 adults and 2 children and 2 tents for 2 nights. We were charged £25. It was £3.50 per adult a night and £1 for children under the age of 16 per night.

Apart from the train noise and the sheep noise, the site was great, it had plenty of room for tents and plenty of room for caravans. The camping field is almost flat unless you camp right on the edge near the bottom of the field, then it has a slight slope.

The owners of the farm were very helpful and were always on hand if you needed anything.

It might be worth booking before you go though, as I did, because when we went the Ďno room, bookings onlyí sign was up by the gate every day we were there. It didn'tít seem to be full, apart from in the caravan part of the campsite, there was still quite a lot of open space on the camping field. Cars are also allowed to stay next to your tent and they allow you to pitch anywhere you want too on the camping field. I think if you want electric hook up for the tent, they show you a pitch to go to in the caravan area.

There is a no noise policy after 11pm at night and we had no problems with noise both nights, apart from wind noise and the odd sheep baa.

Whilst we were there, my sisters made friends with the sheep in the next field. There are a couple sheep that were always at the fence wanting to be fussed and given the nice juicy grass from the other side of the fence.

To sum it up, the campsite was great and it has reasonable prices, so I would go back there.
