We've just returned from our second stay at Bank House Farm and would happily recommend the site to anyone. The owner, is very helpful and friendly and we cannot thank him enough for making us welcome during our stay. He works endlessly to keep the site and facilities clean and tidy. The toilets and shower block are warm and cleaned thoroughly once a day. Even during busy weekend spells, we've never had to wait more than a few minutes to use the showers. For our first visit we stayed on the main field, and this year, we used the Meadow field across the road. We actually prefer this side of the site as it is such a lovely field and gave us a lot more space (we were a family group of 3 caravans and a tent). A real plus point for us is being able to use a fire pit for the obligatory evening campfire and marshmallows.

The area is lovely to visit and we're hoping to return again next year as we still have so much to see and do. Hartington is a lovely village, only 2 miles away, and has a lovely selection of small shops for food, groceries and gifts. Sitting on the village green, in the sun, eating fish and chips from the Friday evening takeaway van was a highlight of our week. Many local walking and cycling routes. Tissington, Dovedale, Thor caves, Chatsworth Estate are all great places to visit also. Ashbourne is the nearest town for supermarkets etc, and has a lovely range of shops.

The Manifold Inn is great for a drink although we felt that the food wasn't as good as last year. The George, in Alstonefield, had great food but a little overpriced. The Packhorse Inn at Crowdicote was a lovely find for great food and some fantastic local ales and ciders.

Looking forward to our next visit!

A group of us from work, about 8 in total, booked for a couple of nights at Bankhouse Farm over this weekend just gone (10-12 of May).

It had been raining quite heavily for the previous few days but the ground didn't seem to be too bad.

The site owner booked us in and from then on called us all by our first names and was very friendly. The facilities were very clean and more than adequate for a site of it's size.

The area is absolutely outstanding. The scenery is pretty breathtaking.

When we came to set up, the wind had picked up considerably so we decided to wait an hour to see if it settled down. Off we went to the Manifold Inn across the road. A great pub with good service and excellent food.

We got back an hour later and set up during a lull in the wind. We didn't bother getting the firepit out as it was still drizzling and didn't look like letting off.

We asked to be put over in the corner by the dog walking field as a few of us had our dogs with us and we would also be away from other campers and as a group we may have been a bit noisy for other campers (as it turns out we were quieter than some of the other campers!).

We didn't really sleep much on Saturday night and awoke Sunday morning to see the stream next to our pitches had risen dramatically and was threatening to flood us out.

Over hot coffee and toast we decided to call it a day and pack up. The weather forecast was more torrential rain and we didn't fancy getting stuck.

The site owner came down and to his credit, offered us a couple of nights free when the weather got better as way of compensation. He didn't have to do that and that goes some way to showing how nice he is.

I'll add some pictures, if I can to show how bad the rain was.

I am planning to return in the summer (if we get one) as it's such a nice site in a great location at a reasonable price.

This site is perfect for a family break in the Peak District. There were 3 families in our party, each with our own tents, and had a superb time relaxing and enjoying the full camping experience with a camp fire.

The owners could not be more helpful. The owner is always at hand when needed and makes the site feel very welcoming.

Pub opposite is very handy and the scenery superb.

My father in law also stayed on site in a caravan utilising a electric hook up pitch. He feels it is one of the best sites he has had the pleasure of visiting.

Will definitely be back.

Stayed at Bank House Farm 1st May bank holiday and enjoyed every minute of it. The pitches are of various size on electric so check with the owner when booking with the size of your tent, we had pitch 26 which was of good size for my Outwell Nevada M with front awning. Like all the other reviews say on here, the owners are excellent, nothing is too much trouble, as there's no Vodafone coverage Wayne let us use his house phone to contact some friends who where staying at Hartington, which was very good of him. I'm not going to ramble on about the site as it is fantastic and has gone into my top 5 site's, but you will have to travel for the shop's as the village shop has gone. We went to Bakewell for a visit and supplies and also walked the Manifold Valley Trail to Thor's cave which is a must for anybody staying. All I can say is check out the reviews and their website and book it, you won't be disappointed, we'll be booking again for this year.

We stayed on this lovely site April 24/26th. We were welcomed by the owner who showed us our pitch and gave us all the relevant info, our pitch was next to the manifold river and a great peaceful spot, the toilet and shower block was clean and tidy with no extra cost for shower, plenty of loo roll too. There's a pub right across the road and loads of walks around the area.

This is a lovely quiet spot and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site to anyone, also if you have dogs there is a huge dog walking field, enjoy.

Be careful turning in and out of site because its on a blind bend.
