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.

Reviewer: Gazzagw 1 review from this member

The owner and wardens are fantastic and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, for example offering to help with a flat car battery. The site itself was very clean and well looked after with well kept pitching areas. We were sited on the hill overlooking the pitches that run alongside the river, which suited us perfectly (once we got used to the hooting owl in the tree at night), but may not suit people with any mobility problems, i. E. Getting to the loos, pit washing and showers. The local pub was also excellent in terms of food and ales on offer. Locally there is a visitors center and cafe in Hulme End and from there an easy flat walk/bike ride along the defunct railway line through the valley. There are shops at Hartington - and a fish and chip van there on Fridays - but get there before 9pm - we didn't and went hungry! All in all a first rate site.

What a fantastic site. We stayed over the May Day bank holiday weekend and received an extremely warm welcome. The site itself is very well kept with an excellent pub close by and some great walks in the area.

We used the Manifold Way walk several times and can recommend it to dog owners and walkers alike.

We'll definitely be back.

Just come back from a lovely bank holiday weekend at Bank House Farm. Camping by a stream, opposite a field of sheep and being able to have a campfire - perfect!

The site is peaceful, well maintained and in a picturesque location. Toilets and shower facilities are basic but clean. We camped in the Meadow Field and had plenty of space, although the pay off was having to walk a bit of a way, including along the road, to the toilets and showers. This was fine for us but worth bearing in mind if you have young children.

Hulme End really is a hamlet, the only amenity is the pub, the Manifold Inn, and there isn't any mobile reception - it's a perfect properly rural spot. The pub does great food.

The only improvement I'd like on the site is the provision of recycling waste disposal.

Reviewer: Jan/phil+holly 25 reviews from this member

We were, based on nearly all the other reviews, expecting a fantastic site. This wasn't to be, but before we list the bad points we feel the need to mention how friendly the owners are and the FACT that they work very hard to maintain the site [ grass cut regularly and the amenities block cleaned more than once a day ]. Now the bad points,

1-Pitches too close to each other

2-On a hot day when children would want to play in the river they would be going onto peoples pitches for access, which we feel isn't proper camp site etiquette, this also applies, if, like us you have a dog that likes water.

3-Nowhere for kids to play ball games etc, especially if site full, they would have to play on track running through site.

4-Amenities block is so poorly designed that it isn't usable ie, if someone is at the sinks[2 hand basins] this restricts access to the shower cubicles and also encourages people to leave toilets without washings hands. The showers aren't very warm with very little flow, this also the case for the sink taps, and the pot washing sinks. We feel that if the owners upgraded this area and maybe used a grass collecting mower[ as they have a constant battle sweeping/mopping] they would be working more smart than hard.

Although a nice location with the pleasant village of Hartington only 2 miles away we did leave a day early as it didn't meet our expectations and we wouldn't go again.
