Returned from two nights at Castleton with my partner and 10yo old daughter. We stayed here whilst attending Chatsworth Country fair on Saturday and Sunday.

The site wardens are incredibly helpful and accommodating, allowing us to get on pitch after 8pm. We had an awful drive up from the midlands and were much later than anticipated but they had done everything the could and we got in about 8. 15 on pitch.

Facilities are good if not brilliant but are clean and warm - probably a little dated if honest. One block seems a bit light but there didn't seem to be any issues.

We didn't spend much time on site but the location is fantastic; Castleton and the Hope Valley are beautiful. Chatsworth is about a 20 minute drive and is well worth a visit, even when the country fair isn't on.

We love this part of the country and this site is perfect.

Stayed for 9 nights. Excellent caravan site. Pitches all hardstaning and sized as per caravan club rules. The hard standing gravel does leave some grey mud on your awnings though - not too much of an issue. Toilet and showers very clean and never queued or suffered cold shower - in fact the water is very hot be careful of scalding. Games room was made us of by our kids - pool and table tennis. Great location, just 10-15 mins walk from Castleton. Also not far from Hope. Lots of walking opportunities from site - suggest going to Edale. Lots of places to eat and drink in the village. Had good meals at the George and the old nags head. Lovely friendly wardens who look after the site so well - reception area adorned with loads of flowers. Wardens were very helpful in extending our stay - coming to let us know that they had received a cancellation so we could stay longer. Definitely would use again and recommended. Note that there's no playground for kids, but that didn't affect us.

Well this was a disappointment after our last site, advertised in the handbook as luxury, we would say tired. Maybe we were expecting too much from Castleton, but found it a little tame and very crowded being as we live in Scotland. The wardens were friendly and the little walled section we hooked up in was nice. Not one we would particularly rush back to, in fact we cut it short due to the crowds.

We had a lovely time here over the May day bank holiday week even though the weather was not great.

The site is easy to locate just before you come into Castleton from Hope at the side of the main road and although it is close to the road the traffic noise is not too noticeable at all.

All the pitches are hard standing and you will need decent rock pegs if you are putting up an awning as normal pegs just bend if you attempt to put them in.

The site has all the usual Caravan Club facilities on hand plus a drying room for clothes if you get wet whilst out and about and a small games room.

Castleton village itself is only a 10 minute stroll away and the are a couple of watering holes on the way if you need them and all are muddy boot and dog friendly as the area attracts many walkers along with their four legged friends. There are also a couple of shops in the village and a larger Spar shop in Hope and all are reasonably priced.

All in all it is a great site and we have booked to go back again later in the year but it does get booked up especially at weekends and school holidays but is lovely and quiet for a mid week school term time break.

This was our second visit to this site and it was as enjoyable as the first.

On arrival the lovely wardens told us which pitches were vacant and left us to choose.

Pitches were plenty big enough and I believe they all have ehu.

This is a C. C. Site and is as you would expect, shower block nice and clean, site generally well

Looked after. Seemed to be plenty of lavatories and showers, never had to wait.

There is a barrier for which you are given a card on arrival but this doesn't cause problems.

There is an information room, a washing up place, a laundry and also a family games room.

There is also a large drying room with racks etc. Very handy in a walking area.

I'm not sure there is a kids play area but there is a dog walk.

I you turn right out of the gate 10/15 min walk gets you into Castleton village which has lots of

Cafes, shops and pubs and other things.

There is a bakers/store which had their bread out very early on our first visit but this doesn't happen now. Still recommend the Rose Cottage Tea Rooms. There food is very good. Coffee not so much.

Also try a place I think was called The Ramblers Rest? Superb coffee and amazing scones baked by the lady on site.

If you turn left out the gate you can drive to Hope. There is a very good greengrocers on the main street and a good butcher's down the side turning opposite the church.

Probably the main reason you'll be here is the walking. We were blessed with great weather so we were out every day. If you look at your O. S. Map you'll see lots of walks from Castleton area without need of a car.

One walk not to miss just east of the site you'll find a footpath to Lose Hill, from there go west along the ridge to Hollins Cross then on to Mam Tor and round behind Blue John Cavern brings you back to Castleton. Also a walk up Cave Dale from the village centre is a good day out.

All in all an excellent site in a superb location, we'll certainly go back. You can even hear the sea lions a night.

Spent a couple of nights here in mid-April. Adult weekend spent socialising with family (no kids and a bit too much to drink!).

The site is a typical CC site with good facilities; very friendly and helpful wardens and good sized pitches.

Check-in was easy, select your pitch and let them know.

Castelton is a 10 minute walk and is a lovely small peaks village - 6 pubs to choose from - we'd recommend them all!

We are back in August although with child in tow!
