Stayed at Coopers for a couple of days and found the site to be a lovely little site, Basic but clean and the owners were lovely. Had a nice chat with Mr Cooper who was more than helpful with Directions etc. Will definitely go again! Had a Fab time in a Beautiful little valley.

I think the problem with this site is Some of the regular visitors who go about as though it is them that own the place and that was the only fault we found.

Visited Cooper Campsite with 2 of my friends around the second week of summer holidays. Got to say, the proprietors of the campsite were not the friendliest bunch! A couple of grunts from one and a confused conversation with another, we finally establish our tent in the top field.

The site got very busy on the saturday/sunday, but it was expected being summer holidays! Despite how busy it got, our field was surprisingly quiet into the evening and night. Only problem with it being busy is that you're not given a specific pitch, just a field to go into, meaning that some rather inconsiderate neighbours pitched their gazebo right in from of our tent, completely blocking out our view.

The facilities were really very basic, toilet and shower block were dirty and smelly, but there were plenty of toilets and the showers were fine for 20p. There was no sign of hook up.

You can't book in advance at this campsite, so if you're going in summer holidays its best to head there on a thursday or early friday as we did.

We're not sure how the pricing worked, it was per adult, plus a tent, plus a car, plus a deposit, but it did work out around £23 per night.

I would only go back to this site purely for its location, it is beautiful and there's a great pub (Nags Head) at the end of the lane, however there are other sites in close vicinity. The facilities were definitely what put me off.

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.
