This is a site that makes you reassess the value of first impressions. For instance:

On the approach and when I first saw the site my first impression was 'This is just a field it can't be a club site.'

In reality it's a lovely, peaceful little site that is perfect for weekend breaks.

When I first saw the toilets I thought 'These are very old and dingy'

In reality, although old they're perfectly clean and in decent condition.

When I first saw the showers I thought 'Never mind I'll just get a good wash'

In reality they're great showers. Very clean, plenty of temperature adjustable hot water and most importantly loads of drying/changing space. In fact they're everything that most modern blocks are not - and that's a good thing.

When we first met the warden we thought 'What a gruff old grump!'

In reality.Actually we still think that but he's really nice underneath the gruff exterior. He even lent us some balls and things for the kids to play with.

We loved our stay and weren't bothered by the midges (we use mosquito coils and they're great) or the older condition of the facilities. We can't wait to come back.

A small friendly site with all the basics :
Clean toilets and showers, but in definate need of an update. Small reception/shop with milk, sausages, bacon, eggs, ice creams and a few dry goods.
Lovely scenery surrounds the site and most pitches are level. For a small site it has a feeling of being spacious. A haven for walkers and for those less energetic, some fantastic drives high into the moors. Alternatively, Manchester is only app. 40 minutes away if you crave some retail therapy.
Personally, the only down sides to this site are the midges (if its been raining) and the buildings, which are in desperate need of a re-vamp. All in all a great little site.

This is a nicely kept quiet site with warm (free) showers you'll never want to leave.  So many midges we were spitting them out.  Deet required but shop sells citronella candles.  Conveniently placed on the Pennine Way.  Not my favourite site in the peak district but would definitely return again if in the area.

Just returned from a spur of the moment decision to camp out following a good weather forecast and having never been to this site before decided to give it a go and loved it.
A nice quiet tent only site nestled in the valley close to the reservoirs, but sheltered from the weather.  The site was well maintained with trimmed even grass on a slight incline with shelter on the outskirts and middle from trees which surround the field.
Yes, the showers etc are basic but also wonderful-plenty of hot water on tap without having to pay extra. Can think of many worse examples (Conniston Hall?)
Little shop on site with all the essentials, and the chap inside is also helpful and will guide you to the best pitch available whilst ensuring that there is 6m between pitches.
A friendly bunch on site, with a mixture of walkers, cyclists and families. When we got there there was a cricket match going on down at the bottom of the field.
No noise problems at all. Not sure if there is a curfew, but by 11:30 everyone either tucked up in their bags or quiet drinking in their tents. No radios etc which often spoil some sites.
Enjoyed the site and will be going back again.

First visit to this site - went along with walking club - first walk too! Pleasant little site. Maintained. Small but adequate shop. Shower/toilet block very disappointing though - very small for number of people on site. On a positive side, oodles of hot water though and foc. The charge I felt was on the expensive side considering the facilities - not particularly encouraging to want to use them!
Nice location amidst lots of walks. I was there over the last bank holiday in May - and there were plenty of midges.
Please invest some money into the toilet/shower block and washing up area then it would be a spot-on site.

This is the first time we have had any contact with a C.C.C. Site, we tend to stick to small family owned sites where we can but on this occasion we visited friends on this particular site.

First impressions were very good, I liked the idea of the site being tents only, being Easter bank holiday weekend it was busy but not overcrowded and there was lots of room in the middle of the main field for the kids to play.

What struck me most was the toilet/shower/dish-washing area, the ladies toilets were clean and very basic but my husband was not impressed with the gents toilets at all (and that is coming from a man). Two showers and two dish-washing sinks serviced the whole site which as you can imagine, would get very busy at peak times.

The surrounding area was great for walks even for a 2 year old.

Not having to pay for showers and hot water is a bonus but in my opinion this site does not justify the what I would class as expensive rates.
