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.

We stayed here last week for our 1st ever camping trip and we loved it. It's such a peaceful site to stay. We had electric hook up and was just by the steam which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. We were shown around the facilities as we arrived. The loo's and shower area always looked like it had just been cleaned every time we went up to them. And we found the fridge/freezer very useful. Our pitch was nice and flat and a good size.

We loved the fact that the pub was just across the road. We had 2 meals in there, both were lovely and fresh.

All in all a lovely place to stay and we have already enquired about another stay.

We have visited Bank Hall Farm a couple of times a year for around the last five years and have never got around to posting a review, so finally after a lovely long Easter break the time has come!

We usually opt to stay in the large field over the bridge from the farm and park our motorhome next to the stream that passes through the site. This years first camping trip was another great long weekend in the Manifold valley. Some of the many things that keep bringing us back to this site are its location, its helpful owners and the friendly campers this site attracts.

Whilst we don't have children ourselves the friendly family atmosphere on the site was lots of fun, when the sun was shining we even joined an impromptu game of cricket with some of our neighbours!

Although we are generally self sufficient when I have visited the facilities they have always been kept to a high standard, even on a busy bank holiday.

Activity wise, you can walk down the Manifold trail, just around the corner from the site and the village of Hartington is up the road. Just next to the site is the lovely Manifold Inn which is highly recommended for Sunday lunch or evening meals.

We would highly recommend this site if you enjoy a quiet break next to the river or a location for a family break, you won't be disappointed.

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.
