Just returned from a three night stay at Bank House Farm.

Spotless toilets and showers (free), plenty of toilet roll, hand towels and hand soap, didn't have to wait to use them.

Great location, pub just across the road, reasonable beer prices, food very good, we had an evening meal and breakfast. If you want to eat there for an evening meal we would advise you book a table as it gets busy at the weekend.

Shop less than five minutes walk away - stocks everything and shop owner's very friendly.

Wayne, campsite owner, was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The grass could have done with a cut as it was very dewy in the night/morning, so keep that in mind for a pair of wellies for trips in the night/morning to the toilets at this time of year.

There is free use of the fridge and freezer (great for ice blocks) and lots of local information handy.

We didn't find the road noise intrusive as we were the far end of the field. Some great views and places to walk from the camp.

The ducks that live by the river are very friendly and have no issues with coming to say hello and eat the worms as you lift your ground sheet up!

Yes we would return to this site.

This was our first night 'try it' camping night before going on a long trip. Chose Bank House Farm based on previous reviews, they are not wrong. The site is superbly located and facilities excellent - didn't have to queue for toilets/showers or wash facilities. Owner is excellent - even provided us with hook up cable despite having our own. Pub is nice, told food good but noticed service a bit slow.

Am booking a long stay at Bank House in next few weeks - this was an excellent first trip out.

Just returned home, from an excellent weekend camping at this site with friends,

Spotlessly clean everywhere

Very child friendly

Very good site owners, regular campsite checks

Shop near by, good selection

Pub at junction, again good

Will return

Hartington village beautiful, good selection in the cheese shop

We were on the second camp site which doesn't have facilities so you have a two minuet walk across to the main site to shower, I didn't find this a problem, as I really thought this site was so well maintained and had lovely campers and caravanners staying there

Not a noisy site

Just back from a 2 night stay. Nice site but be warned - if you are camping on the Meadow Field there are no facilities on this side of the road! We did find this a bit off putting initially as we were camping with our young children and the toilets are a good few minutes walk away across the road and up a hill to the main farm building - in fact the pub toilets are closer! This is something that the owners failed to mention to us when booking and would put us off from returning in all honesty.

This is one of the best settings we have been to. Idyllic with fabulous views. Wayne, the owner, could not have been more helpful especially on Sunday morning when after a horrendous storm the river burst its banks! He was up at 5. 30am warning people to pack up and move. He was on hand helping where necessary.

Before the washout we had a fabulous day and half in glorious sunshine. The facilities are clean and warm. The usual queues for loos and washing up but not a problem. The site has various areas to pitch in and offers some electric hook up.

Local pub is great with excellent food - TIP you have to book to eat in the evening.

Loads of walks locally.

Will definitely go back.

Just back from 3 nights at this site, part of a group of 12 in 4 tents.

Owner was extremely helpful with our booking, ensuring we were all together on flat pitches.

We arrived midweek and the site was nearly empty but filled up on Friday for the glorious sunny weekend!

Showers and toilets and pot washing sinks are limited and sometimes busy, but spotlessly clean, owner was talking to us about this and has plans to improve in the future.

Views and walks from the site are great, we used the top field for games of rounders etc and had a fab time.

The kids paddled and swam in the river, we had barbecues in our fire pit - slabs provided - so nice to have this freedom.

Dog field is huge and away from the tent area. Lots of families of ducks wandering through our gazebo - lovely to see.

We didn't visit the pub across the road but the menu looked good.

There are 2 big fridge/freezers in the barn area which are free to use, that's just such a thoughtful touch and helped us a lot to chill the drinks on the hot days, no 20p charges for everything here!

Owner is great, he is helpful and visible at all times which I found reassuring as we had no menfolk with us! He offered extra ehu leads and any help we may need, and always had time for a chat, even though he was busy. He deserves to make a success of this site as he works so hard and wants everyone to have a good time when visiting.

Overall a lovely break on a really nice site, and I look forward to returning in the future, but - we will need the view from the top of the site next time - to die for!

If you're looking for entertainment and luxury don't visit this site, but if you are like us and want to relax in a beautiful area, with a genuine helpful site owner, and spotlessly clean facilities, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
