Very helpful and pleasant owner, who made delicious home made food in the cafe.

Toilet and washing area spotless and hot water for washing up and bathing.

Very clean with no litter and clearly marked bins.

High standard of facilities.

Lovely green rolling site next to a small river and a stone's throw from the famous Hardrow Falls but without the bog or public access.

Overall a lovely spot with picturesque views

Just got back from a quick two, enjoyable nights at Old Hall Cottage and I thought the views from the site are amazing.

The site is relatively level and on the days in question it was quiet with only five tents in situ so I could pitch where I wanted. As previously commented on the toilets/showers are small but for me this wasn't a problem with the site quiet.

The showers were clean and pipping hot so the 50p did not seem too much to ask. The lack of hot water in the basins was a chore though as it meant 'carting' a kettle with you if you wanted a shave.

The cost for me and a two berth tent/car was 9 per night so this didn't seem too expenses but I have just returned to camping after a considerable time so don't know how this compares?

The Green Dragon pub is only two mins and is an excellent pub with a wide variety of real ales, good food, homely ambience and welcoming open fire.

If you catch the site 'off peak' as I did you will find it a more than enjoyable experience.

A very well kept site, fairly flat ground and well drained. The camping area is behind the cafe and away from the road making this site nice and quiet.

The two toilets are kept clean and well 'stocked', there isn't a hand washing sink in the toilet but there are 2 sinks available in the shower block which has 2 showers.

Unfortunately the facilities do not have hot water, not even in the pot washing area which makes washing greasy pots a bit of a chore.

There isn't a play park or designated area for children but there is still plenty to do in the surrounding area.

The area has a lot to offer if relaxing is the order of the day, the views are amazing.

Next door to the site is the Green Dragon pub which serves reasonable beers and food. The owners of the pub also own the waterfall just behind the pub, worth a visit but be prepared not to be amazed.

The cost for a 3 man tent with 2 people cost 13 for 1 night, very reasonable indeed. Cost of a shower is 50p for 5 mins.

We will visit the site again as we enjoyed our stay, friendly locals and sociable visitors.

My boyfriend and I have stayed here a few times now and is one of our favourite places to come back to. It costs us 14 per night as we have a large 4-man tent. The field is rather uneven so a level pitch may be hard to come by at peak times, especially if you have quite a large tent. That said, we've never had a problem.

The shower and toilet facilities are clean and adequate, with hot showers for 50p and always plenty of paper in the toilets! This is only a small site and we've been when it has been very busy, and never had to queue for a toilet or shower. The washing up area does not have hot water, but it isn't that much of a hardship to boil our own kettle and get some.

The cafe in the Cart House is lovely, the leek and potato soup is delicious and a variety of tea and coffee is available, as well as locally produced icecream for those hot days. The highlight must however be the Green Dragon Inn next door, not a cheap round but some very nice real ales on tap and plenty of good conversation to be had with the locals and others passing through. We've stumbled on folk festivals here when we've been, and spent several evenings taking refuge when we didn't check the forecast before freezing in our tent!

It is a pleasant walk of just over a mile along the Pennine Way into Hawes, where there are several pubs and cafes and a variety of shops where we have managed to find everything we needed, especially as there is a Spar for groceries. There is also a HSBC in Hawes where there is a cash point.

In all, this is a lovely little site that we enjoy coming back to, and are looking forward to our next trip.

The campsite is in a lovely scenic area and is also very large. My family and I had lots of space as there were hardly any campers there as it was the end of March. The staff were nice too.

We were charged 18 per night. It is 12 for 2 people with a 2 berth tent and car, as we had a 4 berth tent they charge 1 per extra berth per night, then they charged us 2 pounds a child per night. As we had 2 children with us it was 4 extra. This seemed ridiculous as they had already charged us for having a larger tent. We have stopped on campsites with lots of facilities at this price so we felt like we had been ripped off.

The facilities were always clean and smelling nice, but the toilet and shower block were always cold as they are not heated as they are in old fashioned buildings. The toilet and shower blocks are unisex so when having a shower it is best if you have a friend with you to tell you when someone is there, as when you put your 50p in the meter which is outside the shower you might be seen.

There is a cafe on the campsite which serve light snacks and hot/cold drinks. The food was lovely but slightly pricier than here in Doncaster.

None of the taps there have warm water, just cold, so if you need to wash some pots you will have to boil some water yourself. It seems really silly to me that the pot washing area as cold water.

There is a lovely pub a minutes walk from the campsite called the Green Dragon. It is really old worldy with a roaring fire and old fashioned furniture.

Behind this pub there is Hardraw Force the waterfall. The staff there are fantastic and we asked if they would do us breakfast and they did even though we were not staying there.

The kids were even given a fudge for free which I thought was really kind. We had an evening meal here also which was very nice but a little pricey but that's probably because there are no shops for miles so it might cost more to get there.

First time back camping for many years and a great little campsite. (But if I put that it will get busier!) Basic but very clean. And apart from farmers mowing their fields and shooting their guns - very quiet!

The worst bit was the midges but this can't be put down to the site, just the weather and the time of year; and this is the countryside and none of this spoiled a stay on a friendly and really nice site.

As mentioned it is basic and I would have paid a little extra to have hot water on tap. The 50p for a hot shower was fine but the sinks only run to cold water.

The cost was 7 a night for me a tent and the car, so I'm not complaining.

The Green Dragon nearby does great beers and I'm told, good food. Oh yes I nearly forgot, the owners are really nice, so to quote Arnold, 'I'll be back'.
