Lovely farm campsite. Very welcoming, owner and the wardens.

Booked 2 nights last minute. Was given a spot on the top field overlooking the tighter, muddy EHU spots next to the river. (Kids paddled in this, ducks became our best friends, especially when food was around. ) Beautiful views, pitch next to a noisy road during daylight hours, but only 1 other there and a good deal away from our pitch.

Facilities were as others say sparse, 4 free showers (2 male/2 female) with an on/off button, (a luxury on campsites) although early use proved no problem with queuing, sinks were very tight to use other than washing hands. They were cleaned very regularly and looked to be fairly new, compared to the original toilet in the farm building and the extra ladies portacabin.

Two washing up sinks, so there were queues for this, especially as one was open to the elements! The owner sold wood and burners, (gas as well) although we didn't use them, quite a few others did.

The pub across the road was very convenient, food was good and drinks even better when you can walk back to your tent. Hartington village is beautiful and the village shop sold some great local food, also had a few pubs too.

A short drive to Dovedale and very close to the Tissington trail.

We visited on the spur of the moment after reading the mixed reviews here. On arriving I noticed how close together the pitches were by the river and was a bit worried that would be squeezed in but we were told to pitch in the meadow field which had bags of room and nice flat areas and we could put the tent up where we liked. The only problem was the walk along the road to go back to the main site for the loos and washing. I did not like the hike too much as I have trouble with slopes, the washing facilities seemed basic but adequate but I can imagine some large queues there in the morning. The position of the site next to a pub is a bonus as they do great food and beers. We only stayed the one night and I think that is all we could have put up with being in the meadow field without any facilities apart from a water tap.

We arrived on a busy weekend. The warden was really helpful and quick to check us in and explain anything we needed to know. We were right on the banks of the River which was beautiful. The pitches were well spaced out and non that I could see were too much in the shade / undercover.

The bus stops outside to either Buxton or the lovely village of Hartington.

The Manifold Inn is directly opposite which was busy in the afternoon with cyclists and walkers and had a lovely atmosphere. We had Sunday Lunch there which was really nice.

The showers and toilets were very clean. The only drawback was there are only 2 female and 2 male shower and toilet along with 2 sinks with not a lot of space. There was very little privacy and they were very busy.

I would definitely return and the walks around the area were amazing with something for everyone.

What a gem of a park! We asked for EHU overlooking the river and a flat pitch, we got what we asked for! Pitches are well marked and the owner takes you over and explains everything to you! Great customer service! Very clean toilet area, a skip for rubbish. The site is well managed and the owners are very friendly and helpful, in a lovely quiet spot but not too far from Bakewell, lovely for a cake! The Manifold pub over the road is lovely, you can take the dog in the conservatory if you want a meal! We were a family of four with children 12 and 15 and a small dog.

A lovely setting by the river, we stayed here for 1 night in a tent, we used pitch 2 which is close to the entrance. The road noise was very noisy, possibly as it is on a junction with a narrow bridge, lots of cars hooting horns! Tractors about every 10mins until 11ish then from 6am. Shower and toilet facilities were adequate (nothing special) freezer available. Site was well run and staff friendly. Lots of ducks roaming around, nice to see until they start quacking all through the night! At which point they would seem nicer with orange sauce!

Beautiful site, very picturesque and grounds are immaculately maintained. Very helpful owner takes a pride in the appearance and facilities on site.

Toilet and shower block is fine although my visit was midweek so may be pressure on facilities when site is more fully occupied at weekends.

Very rural location but with a pub directly opposite serving food all day long.

Some great walks directly from the site or within a short drive. Will definitely be going again at some time.
