Just returned from a 3 night mid week break at this site. We hoped being mid week it would be quieter alas although not full, everyone seemed to bring an army of noisy children with them, not good as we chose this site hoping for peace and quiet. The showers and toilets were basic but ok and kept reasonably clean although there is room for improvement. You are asked to not use the showers and toilets between 11.00am and 12.30pm to allow for cleaning , I didn't see anyone cleaning at these times. There is a little shop on site which although is very expensive and untidy did seem to stock most essentials. The surrounding area is beautiful and a walkers paradise but it is isolated and a car is needed if you wish to shop, eat out or go for a pint. I would give this site a higher mark out of ten but at an amazingly high price of (considering the facilities) £14.70 per night for two adults and one small tent I feel I can only rate it 6 out of 10. I've stayed at much better for much less.

Just returned from a 4 - night break here and loved it! Went with husband and baby - plenty of nearby walks accessible with a pushchair. Approachable site owner, well stocked little shop, beautiful setting, showers basic but clean and well-spaced out area for dressing.
Only down side was the midges. Came home covered in bites, and it was uncomfortable after 6pm as they seemed to swarm everywhere. That said, it was to be expected for the woodland setting. All in all a great holiday and we would love to return.

This site is fantastic providing you dont mind lots of noisy kids and driving for at least half an hour to get anywhere for anything.

On the one hand its great, with carefully kept grass surrounded by mature trees with breathtaking views of the high peaks and moors. Its also great for access to walks, being set right on the Penine Way. The toilet block is alright but does need renovation.

On the other hand, its absolutely miles from anywhere. There are no pubs or shops (other than the small campsite shop) within walking distance. We quickly became weary of having to drive for ages every day for anything but hiking. The site is close to a main road which is a minor irritation but this is eclipsed by the fact that this is a 'family site' with loads of kids shouting and kicking balls at your car and tent till 9:30 pm.

Generally, this site is an unhappy balance between a remote site well situated for wilderness walks and peace and quiet on the one hand - and a noisy family orientated site on the other.

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.
