Nice views and plenty of space. Few rules and they allow camp fires. Easy reach of Leek and Ashbourne. Plenty to do in the area, near to but not as busy as Derbyshire. Very reasonably priced. They do have DoE groups who hog the facilities on arrival and first thing in the morning but they're not too bad.

Stayed for a couple of nights based on the reviews on here, and they were pretty accurate. A nice site set in picturesque countryside.

There were two fields, we parked up in the larger field on the right as you drive in. The one on the left had better views but other campers, so we opted for a field to ourselves.

There was plenty of nice footpaths for walking and the manifold valley just a mile or so walk down the hill. We visited the pub in Butterton but wouldn't recommend the food or beer unfortunately.

The facilities at the site were good and it was nice to have the free range chickens as visitors. If we were in the area again, we wouldn't hesitate in using this site.

We chose Heathy Roods Farm in the Peak District for a weekend getaway and it was absolutely stunning. The small site is quite remote, up on top of a hill with beautiful views all around.

There are two level fields to this site and I think the larger one has the best views. It sits next to a sloping field that had just been harvested for hay as the bails sat dotted around.

The larger field has a corner sectioned off for Duke of Edinburgh groups and one such group was there on our first night. They didn't make too much noise and were quiet by at least 10pm until they packed up about 8am in the morning.

The charge of 4. 50 per person per night was a bargain, even accounting for the 1 you must spend for four minutes in the shower. All the facilities are unisex. There are two nicely maintained showers, two toilets, two washbasins and two sinks for dishwashing. We didn't have to queue to use any facilities over the course of the weekend.

The location is the main selling point of this site. It's a walker's paradise.

Having never camped before I didn't know what to expect. There was a large group of us and the owners let us pitch in the smaller field (we were noisy!)

The views are fantastic. The toilet block and showers were spotless. We hired a 'camp fire' from the site.

We had breakfast delivered to our tent and that was very nice. Only there 1 night but I intend on purchasing a tent ( I borrowed one from a friend) and taking my kids. Wetton Mill is not far if you wish to take kids for a paddle.

Brian and Lily were very welcoming. I would recommend this site

Visited this site on a Thursday for a one nighter with two friends and loved it so much brought my wife her sister and our niece back on the Saturday.

The location is beautiful with outstanding views of the country side wherever you pitch.

Toilet and washing facilities are in an outbuilding next to the owners house and only a minute or two's walk from anywhere on the site.

One part of the outbuilding houses two toilets and wash basins. A little verandah has three washing up sinks and round the corner are two showers. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The showers cost 1 for about 4-5 mins. (Considering how little it costs to camp this was no hardship)Water temp is very easy to control. As the price to stay is so reasonable this

No play area but an old tractor provided lots of entertainment for the kids that were there.

The nearest pub The Black Lion is in Butterton village a mere 15-20 min walk away. The beer and the food are both very good and reasonably priced.

The site is perfectly located for walkers and cyclists with an abundance of trails for both.

An extra bonus NO MOBILE PHONE SIGNAL :)

We will definitely be revisiting this gem.

We stayed here in our campervan for a weekend in June. We can't comment about prices as we won this weekend from the Waterhouses duck race!

We can comment however about the fantastically friendly couple who run this little gem. So nice to be welcomed personally.

We had no trouble pitching our awning and the choice of 2 fields were both pretty level. The campsite is a basic field, 2 loos, 2 showers set up, but for a weekend it was ideal. The kids had great fun playing on the old tractor and it was great to see them racing around the ample space enjoying themselves. We enjoyed a great bike ride from the site over to Wetton mill, but it was a very steep ride back up to the site.

All in all if you like to get back to a real camping experience this is for you.

If you want electric hook ups, bars and staff dressed in animal outfits- maybe not!
