Nestled in the cleavage of the Great Ridge and the Kinder Scout Plateau is the hikers Shangri la of the Hope Valley. Cooper’s Campsite is an enchanting High Peak setting for a classic Ealing comedy ambiance. I’ve been coming here for probably decades and despite its forgivable deficiencies the campsite is one component of a perfect experience.

The shower block is “rustic”, “basic” and whatever other euphemism you can find for “out-dated”. But the showers are spacey and always hot so as long as you’re not expecting “luxury”, you’ll be content – even if you do pay 20p for the pleasure. And just when your expectations have dropped, you find the washing-up area has hot water and a roof. The fields have an excusable slope and for camper-vanners like me, there are electric hook-ups… but not enough to ensure availability so ALWAYS pre-order these.

The owners… after all these years I don’t know their names… have a charm of their own and add a greater depth of character to the experience. The guy is as close to a northern farmer stereotype as you’re as likely to get and is grumpy and friendly in equal amounts. If it seems like he’s being impolite and stroppy just smile and agree and wait for his mood to lighten which it generally does within a minute or so.

So stand in the centre of the camping field and look around at the breath-taking scenery and you stand here with the knowledge that you’re at the beginning of a myriad of iconic walks – including the short walks to the 2 beautiful, busy pubs in the village. And to the magical post office where the shelves are bare and yet they always seem to have the one thing that you need…. But that’s if you’re lucky enough to catch it open.

What a lovely, lovely place. Not the best shower and toilet block by far. But the site is great for walking the dogs, great pub across the road. Good cafe on site. The owner is a bit of a grump, but lovely with it. We're lucky that he chooses to share his beautiful home with us campers. Will be going again for definite.

I love this site and have been there many times. Yes it's a bit rough and ready but surely that's the point! Located in possibly the best area in the peaks and very cheap. The owners can come across as a bit grumpy but I think that's all part of the act, and if you take the time to speak to them they're actually always friendly.

It will be a very sad day indeed when this place is 'improved' with a children's play area and updated toilet block; but until then let's make the most of it :)

A no frills campsite in a fantastic location. We turned up without pre booking an they managed to fit us in with hook up. They were in the middle of lambing and we had to wait a bit while they finished a few jobs but that's fine as it's a working farm and while waiting they let me stroke one of the orphaned lambs. The facilities are basic but clean, plenty of toilets and showers which are 20p and an outdoor pot wash area. We didn't use the cafe but it looked good. They have a post office and shop which was well stocked. The campsite got busy the next day but not over crowded or noisy. Walks to kinder scout etc start from a path next to the farm so its a great base for walking. We tried both pubs in the village and thought the ramblers rest was the better of them. It's also a lovely walk over to Castleton with caves, shops, pubs etc We paid £34 for two nights with hook up for two adults and a dog.

Visited Coopers for the first time in 13 years. Stayed 2 nights and once again enjoyed the experience. The toilet block and wash up area have grown to accommodate the number of people using the site. Showers 20p for loads of hot hot water, lovely after walking for the day. Had a coffee at the cafe at site entrance but the smell of the bacon cooking made me feel hungry, the breakfast are quite renowned. The weather had been wet up to our arrival but the field wasn't muddy as car owners were asked to keep cars to edge of field.

There is the post office next to the site where you can obtain bread and milk daily papers and the Old Nags Head across the road. There is another pub in the village, Ramblers Arms, which is nearer to the railway station and although both pubs are owned by same company they couldn't be more different. Lots of walks in all directions so spoilt for choice.

We have just returned from a (wild weather) weekend camping at Coopers campsite in Edale. I am glad to report that it hasn’t changed at all and still retains the charm of a proper campsite, no frills, cheap showers, good washing up facilities and stunning views of surrounding hills. Our first choice of campsite was in Lancashire but we couldn’t camp there because the owner said it was too wet. So we set off for coopers safe in the knowledge that after doing several winter camps there and we wouldn’t be turned away. We got there at 7pm pitched up in a spot of our choice to the left of the main path. If you are looking for all the latest mod cons and entertainment found at places like Haven then this campsite could only be described as being at the other end of the scale. We were the only ones camping there this weekend so we had the place to ourselves, we have also camped there in the middle of summer when the place is buzzing with people, there aren't too many rules at the campsite just the usual ones about no noise after a certain time; pick up your dog poo, use the bins and don’t burn the grass with BBQs. There is a small shop near the site and a walker friendly pub within easy reach. The main attraction of coopers is the stunning location and the campsite blends in with the character of its surroundings, having got back home I feel like I have been to a different world and I am already thinking about my next visit.
