We stayed on Coopers camp site weekend of 22nd Feb and although the ground had taken a battering with recent rain, the fields were soft but dry.

The warden greeted us and asked that we did not drive the car on the grass - which was perfectly understandable. And gave us the option to pitch wherever we pleased.

The facilities were clean and tidy, showers, toilets and dish washing area.

There was a shop just off site (post office) and a cafe which was very reasonably priced.

We paid 13 for 1 night, small tent, car and 2 adults.

We walked 50 meters from the tent and we were in the local pub, the nags head - which is a superb country village pub serving decent ales, one was there own - Nags 1577

Just down the road is another pub called the Ramblers in which was more modern and more lively.

The site itself is right at the start of the Pennine Way, if you enjoy a walk, follow the path up Jacobs Ladder and on to the highest peak - Kinder Scout

Be prepared though, it's very windy up there!

We camped at Coopers during the Edale Cider & Beer Festival and found it to be a lovely site.

We were told that there was no need to book except at Bank Holidays, we also had no difficulty finding a suitable pitch. Pitches are sloping, on smooth well-kept grass.

Views from all the fields are magnificent, but it's a very friendly and quiet place and would be ideal for a walking or a cycling holiday. We obtained OS maps and pre-designed route maps of surrounding Edale walks and hills / kinder scout etc from nearby info centre just yards down the road, we covered 26 miles in 8 day stay on hard walks / climbs, only getting lost once, I would recommend a compass as some routes are not so clear and not way-marked, we then enjoyed the very nearby pub - Nags Head full of character and friendly staff as was the camp site. This is a working farm. Odd tractor etc. Lots of sheep.

Costs are very reasonable: we were charged 13 per night for 2 adults and a tent, we enjoyed ourselves so much we extended our stay from 5 nights to 8 nights. Farmer is friendly if you behave and don't burn his grass with low down BBQ's. (3 feet).

The toilet block has plenty of capacity. It's in one corner of the site, so you may want to pick your pitch if you don't want to be too far away - it's quite a trek to the opposite corner of the site! flip flops are useful or wet feet by the time you walk back to tent early on a morning.

There are hot water washing-up sinks behind the toilet block, and cold water sinks elsewhere around the site. Everything is kept clean and hygienic; bins are emptied often, the sinks have plugs and the loos are kept well supplied with paper - both indicators of a well-run site!

There's a shop / PO and a very nice cafe on site, and two rambler-friendly pubs nearby. There's also another cafe near the station. The shop will re-freeze your freezer blocks for a small fee.

Money can be withdrawn from on site post office shop card machine if your bank permits that sort of thing. Lloyds do. Everywhere takes cards anyhow.

Definitely going back again. Highly recommended. Great for serious walkers / runners / families too.

Stopped here for a second time. First time was back in 2009. Not a lot has changed. Same basic facilities which were clean and tidy.

Showers were clean and plenty of hot water even with the site being full all for 20p.

Site cost 6. 50 per night with no advanced booking available.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

Definitely will be coming back.

Advice - turn up early on a Friday if it forecast good weather as it soon fills up !

This is a proper camp site, not to be confused with a holiday camp. The fields are good. The toilet block is good -the walls are painted breeze block, floors, including shower floors, are concrete. There are 5 or 6 sinks, cubicles and showers. Plenty of hot water and lots of washing up sinks. I wouldn't want to have the owners round for dinner but they did everything that they needed to. It is of a similar standard to other good sites used mainly for outdoor activities. The shop and cafe are a bonus. Brilliant location for walking.

We stayed at this site for a couple of nights over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. I phoned on the Saturday morning to check availability and was happy to be told that there was. We arrived just before lunchtime and were given a warm welcome from the owners who showed us which field we could pitch in but we could pick exactly where ourselves. The site was busy when we got there but as the weekend progressed more and more tents arrived and the field did start to feel a bit claustrophobic. This put pressure on the facilities with long queues at the pot wash and constant running out of toilet roll.

There is no dedicated children's play area but there is plenty of open space for them to run around in.

As has been mentioned before the views are stunning and the facilities are basic but clean. We had a wonderful time here and I would return but probably when it is a bit quieter.

Just returned again here with a mate, this time in tents.

No real change since last summer.

Same toilets etc

No winter revamp! Lol

But. Same beautiful views etc

This is a walkers site and basic is functional so no issues

Washing up hot water frozen as was the field drinking water pipe. But hey that's nature.

Bins plentiful and so was loo paper.

We will be back

7 per tent with 1 adult.
