Immediately upon arriving at the site the wardens berated our camping friends for washing the road mud from their van and then, immediately afterwards, made another couple re-hitch their unit to move it two feet across the pitch.

Sunday afternoon came and, whilst everyone on the site is trying to take their ease, the warden drives his very noisy tractor ( I’m sure its been tuned to F1 standards or has no exhaust muffler) around to various positions on the site and then proceeds to start leaf blowing using a very noisy two stroke power tool! Hardly environmentally friendly on several counts and really spoiling the overall peace and quiet that the Peak District is famed for.

To add to the disturbance there were several noisy dogs that were completely out of their owners control. I counsel the Caravan Club to have separate areas for dog and non dog owners as, frankly when out of control, dogs can be as much of as a pain a these wardens were and I’m sure that other dog owners would be more prepared to put up with the yapping noise than I am.

First time in Derbyshire so first time here. Impressed with both.

On arrival greeted by friendly wardens who pointed out different vacant pitches and left us to choose. I believe all pitches are hardstanding with ehu. Don't know if it was me but all the pitches seemed big which was nice. There are barriers on entrance and exit but not a problem.

Site kept clean and tidy and lavatory/shower block was clean every time I used it during different times of the day.

There are 7 showers in both men's and women's which was plenty with more than enough lavatories and privacy cubicles. Never had any problems getting in and using them. Showers were nice and hot unfortunately with fixed heads. My main problem is the same across all C. C. Sites; the shower cubicles are much too small!

On site is an information room, laundry with what The Boss tells me is the best tumble dryer she has ever used and washing up room. Unusually there is a family room which has a pool table and table tennis table. Not sure what the reception has in the way of cues and bats etc. A great plus for this outdoor/walking site is a huge drying room with racks, hooks and benches.

There was a small dog walk but not, I think, a play area.

Turn right out of the gate and a short walk get you into Castleton village which has plenty of shops, cafes, pubs etc. There seemed to be everything we wanted. Recommend Rose Cottage Tea Rooms, nice food and lovely cakes (always important). Also recommend the Peveril Baker and stores. If you get in about 0745/0800 there is delicious, fresh baked bread still warm from the oven. They make their own scones (important) also delicious. Had some good picnics on top of hills with their stuff.

Turn left out of the gate gets you to Hope, a smaller village with a good greengrocers. The Blue Apple opposite the church does excellent coffee and nice cakes (still important). There is a small deli here which the lady opens at 0730 and makes up rolls and sarnies to order. Had a couple of these when we made early starts.

Not much in the way of bus services though.

Lastly and most importantly is the fact you are in the Derbyshire Peak District. We really were blown away by how beautiful it was. No point in listing all the walks as I expect you'll have your own guides and O. S. Maps but you'll see there are several starting just nearby.

We were Peak District virgins and went home with some beautiful, abiding memories, I hope you'll do the same.

We've already decided we shall return here next year. You can even hear the sea lions at night.

Booked through the Caravan club paid in full on arrival and meet at site by a wonderful lady who tolded us we were early and cannot get on till 12noon which was no problem has it was 11:30. Booking in was easy and they explained everything about how to park on plot which we were told to choose any plot with white number post ourselves then tell them our plot number. The site itself is well kept and ideally situated for great walks. The showers and toilets are clean and kept warm, water and waste disposal are well signed, elsan points are big and easily found. There's a great info room and a family room with pool table and table tennis. If you like great food try the Cheddar cheese inn we ate there twice and both times beautiful. Looking forward to going here again its a defo return for us.

Stayed here for a few days over May Day weekend 2014. Site was full but didn’t feel congested – walking around in the evening, we did notice a couple of caravans with noisy occupants, but fortunately the area around us was very quiet. Wardens very friendly, toilets/showers very clean. This site is probably the closest you will get to Castleton – an easy walk – and is ideally placed for lovely walks and scenery all around. We would be very happy to stay here again.

Been to castleton many a time whilst growing up so I already knew the area and all the fantastic walks and scenery it holds. Must have passed this site so many times but never really noticed. It was a first for us as a base to do some hill walks. I love the idea of driving around the site to choose your own pitch on arrival. First come first served.

The site itself is a typical caravan club site, different style pitches, plenty of room, some dividing hedgerows.

TV reception good. Toilet shower block very clean and showers have the turn around controls so you don't have to keep a button pressed in with your back.

Water service points nice and tidy, no steps to haul your waste hog over to empty it. Site lit at night.

Barriers on entrance and exit is always a good thing.

Castleton is within walking distance, about 15 mins. Plenty of pubs, coffee shops and gift shops as well as lots of attractions.

We loved our stay here and will definitely return again.

Three great nights here, usual high CC standard. Wardens friendly and site in good condition allowing for the very wet Winter. Toilet block really well looked after but starting to show its age when compared to newer CC sites ( Bridlington)

Pitches good and loads of wildlife. So easy to walk into Castleton or Hope and good (if wet) footpaths between. Villages and into the close by peaks.

Castleton very nice, good shops, pubs and cafés catering for all tastes. Peveril Castle worth a visit as long as you like steep paths, views fantastic.

All in all excellent
