Spent two nights in brilliant weather here. Campsite very busy but you wouldn't really know as there was no noise. Not being able to have a fire was an issue as the midgies are very bad. Toilets in need of renovation as seats and cisterns broken but plenty hot water and showers only 20p. Would definitely use this site again if in the area but would stock up with citronella candles beforehand.

Been a couple of times in 2014.

It is what it is. A walkers site and not a children's holiday park.

I've got used to the Coopers at long last, they are in fact a great couple. It's us lot that are the issue. Lol.

Site slopes, it's a field.

Find a sheltered area, enjoy the quiet and views of the hills. It is after all, why you are there.

No fires as it's a danger of sparks to tents. That said, just use your BBQ charcoal.

Showers and toilets are yes dated, but they are functional.

For the price of the site, it's adequate and any work needed is usually done.

In bad wet weather you can't park on the grass. That's good as who wants to pitch in mud in the weeks after as cars churned up the grass.

I can't wait to return.

We stopped in a small tent at this site over the 2014 Easter Bank Holiday weekend. We selected the site after reading previous reports on this website. We got what we expected. The site is a working farm, so the pitches are not ‘designated’ but ‘find a spot’ works well. Although it was bank-holiday weekend, there was plenty of space left in the large fields. The facilities are basic but plentiful. The toilet & shower block is basic but clean. Plenty of basins, WC’s and showers. Hot water was always there.

Across the road from the site entrance is a great pub, The Old Nag’s Head. Great atmosphere, great beer and outstanding food. Finding a table was a bit hit & miss, but well worth a try.

There is a small shop at the site entrance with well-balanced stock for campers. There is also a cafe at the entrance, which has a good comfortable atmosphere, helpful staff & great bacon baps (they do other great food too!).

The Edale area obviously has major appeal to a wide selection of people, a lovely area with plenty of attractions around.

The only suggestion I would have for the site operators is – please, please, please arrange for hand drying facilities in the toilet block. The site would then tick every box for us. We will be back to this site.

Another visit to Coopers. Just the same as last year, They have not painted the gents toilets yet! THE IDEAL LOCATION for walking in the Dark Peak. Pub food at the Nags & Rambler has got more expensive but camp fees at Coopers is still the same (value for money). Friday, cold night. Saturday, dull & rain early evening. Sunday, brilliant sunshine & 30+ MPH winds tents going down all over the place (but the owners can't be blamed for that). Perfect location if you don't want frills & disco's. 2 adults, 2 tents, 1 car = £15/night Bargain!

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.
