Hollingworth Lake was surprisingly nice.


Access to site is via narrow road around lake which is full of walkers. There is no strict time to arrive or depart - which means you run risk of caravan coming opposite direction. If you are good with reversing through crowds of people you may enjoy this.

When booking I asked what time we could arrive. The answer 'from before lunchtime'. No other instructions or advice given. Arrived at 12:10, reception closed and took several attempts to get answer from phone number stuck on window. Told to find pitch and pay in morning. We weren't told there was a code for toilet block - another camper gave us the code. Where is the customer service, a simple 'the reception will be closed at x time, you will need the code for the toilets, any problems ring x' would have been sufficient at time of booking.

Electricity is pants. Tripped 7 times, meant to be 6amp. We had settings to restrict usage to 5amp, ran the heating and fridge from gas. And yet it tripped repeatedly.

Toilet block was never particularly clean. Admittedly it is Autumn and the tiles are white, but the wall heater was supposedly on a timer (never on) and the hot water taps never got hot. A decent door mat and provision of a mop would help cleanliness.

The whole site looks in need of TLC. Most seasonal pitches look like they have been there for 20yrs, with 20yrs of dirt on awnings to boot. A lot of caravans had building contractors in, arriving late with their vans and leaving early for work. My storage site is better maintained.

15 a night with EHU might sound a bargain, but you get what you pay for at this site.

Just spent a pleasant weekend here. The weather was lovely and the site was busy but not overcrowded, good size pitch. The lower toilet block is basic but I understand this is only temporary until a new block is finished. We paid 17 pn for ehu and awning which we thought was good value. It is worth noting that the electricity is 6amp.

We will definitely use the site again.

Disappointing. The site is mainly a fixed mobile home micro estate. The smallest cheapest I have ever seen, though the residents try their best to keep it smart. We thought 15 plus 50p per shower and no wifi a bit steep. Also there is often nobody on reception and the shop closed at 4pm! Driving in to the hardstanding down the narrow gap between the tiny homes was a squeeze for our Hymer B644. Only 6 amp electric and low water pressure. The walk around the lake (not visible from site) is a pleasant hour and a quarter, but unfortunately the noise from the long high level bridge that carries the M62 over the pennines is disturbing.

Great visit. Only spent 1 night as on our way south. Toilet block clean with lots of hot water. Lady in office very friendly and helpful. 'The Wine Press' pub as you go down lane to Site is about 1 mile away with good beer and a good range of meals available. Would stay again.

After reading the reviews of this site I was very disappointed with it. The whole site was waterlogged. There is only a 6amp electric supply which is not mentioned anywhere. As we arrived on a cold damp day we switched the heating and the hot water heater on and immediately blew the fuse. The shower and toilet block is very dated and definitely wasn't cleaned for the first 2 days of our stay. The showers were 50p which I wouldn't have minded paying for better facilities. The floors are tiled and were freezing! Water pressure was very low. The surrounding area is beautiful so it's a shame that the campsite is so poor.

Just had a wonderful weekend here at hollingworth lake. We knew what to expect as we have stayed here twice before, but never this busy. It was still a lovely relaxing site with plenty to do if so required, the weather outlook was not good rain and thunder storms, but all we had was a very short rain spell, the rest of the weekend was really warm and pleasant. Although this was the busiest we have witnessed it still was no where near cramped or pitched on top of each other. Pitch size is huge and in general we all had a great time so much that I am sure we will return again. 15 per night with ehu for us. 2 x A 1 x C

Great weekend many thanks
