Lovely quiet site, lovely setting, surrounded by great countryside with endless walking opportunities direct from the site or very close by. Due to the amount of rain the area had before we arrived the grass areas were very soggy but the wardens moved us to a hard standing when one became free after a couple of days. Volunteer wardens couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, lovely couple! Short walk to the toilets and showers which were very clean and tidy, basic groceries and papers available to order from reception. We will be back!

This was our first visit and it won't be our last. Beautiful surrounding countryside with a abundance of walks. The wardens (who volunteer and change monthly) were extremely helpful. The site is well maintained with only 20 pitches well spaced out. As previously mentioned the toilet block and showering facilities are a short walk away and were clean. This is a peaceful and very quiet site. Not much for children to do unless they love walks in the countryside.

Amazing setting. Beautiful small site with mature trees for shade, if you want to escape this summers heat wave.

The toilets are located a short walk from the site in the grounds of Ilam country park and are used by campers and visitors, immaculate and adequate. There are just two showers accessed via a key pad for the sole use of those using the campsite.

I think there were about twenty large pitches some hard standing. The wardens were very friendly and helpful, we chose our own pitch.

Walks around Ilam are a joy. Dovedale isn't far and the walk there is along the river and very pleasant We had purchased a book of 9 walks around Dovedale, easy to understand and completed just two, prior to our arrival at Ilam, so we will return.

This site is a real gem, wish we had stayed here for the week, instead of one night. We found a leaflet for this site at the small information hut at Milldale whilst on a walk from Dovedale. We had previously been staying at Rivendale campsite.

This is a really beautiful site adjoining the National Trust property. The views are lovely and the site itself is really well maintained. The wardens were really helpful. It's great to stay here and then wander around the NT gardens once all the tourists have gone home. We didn't use the showers but the toilets were fine, though off the site on the NT property. Great location for exploring the Peak District.

If you are looking for peace, quiet and stunning countryside then this is the site to visit. Just walk out of the small site and there are footpaths in every direction. We walked along the woodland paths of Ilam Hall in June and they smelt of wild garlic. Dovedale is a 20 minute walk.

The volunteer wardens were very friendly, helpful and kept everywhere spotless.

As stated in other posts, mobile phone, radio and TV reception is poor due to the location – non existent in my case, but after the initial ‘worry’ that I couldn’t be contacted ended as total bliss!

We went during the week and in term time so no children there so have not given a rating for this.

The toilets and showers are off site, clean and totally adequate. The showers were lovely so used them instead of my own.

This is the best site I have ever been to.

Just home from a couple of days at Ilam and what a lovely site. To be honest can't fault it.

Tidy, lovely views and fantastic walks from the site. I didn't visit any pubs or shops as was only there for a few days, but recommend walking over the tops to avoid the crowds doing Dovedale actually found these path's views much better too.

Toilet and showers only short walk away and the wardens will get shopping for you if you order before 5pm
