Reviewer: NigelHoll 2 reviews from this member

We went as a group of triker friends, with trailer tents and standard tents

Must admit the grass was long

But the new tenants had only opened on the Friday we arrived

They have great plans & I believe they will deliver

We were all made welcome by the staff & locals, we usually attract a bit of attention when we arrive in convoy

Yes there are only two toilets which double as showers, but they were spotless

The food on the Sat night was very good

We will be back again in May for a Warm Up Rally & really looking forward to seeing what they have done

1) the grass was long for pitching the tents on.

2) there was only two toilets for the whole camp that had 100 + people staying there. Dire.

3) the showers were in the toilet cubicle, so if people were using the showers, then no toilets were available?!?!

4) the showers were filthy, not just the floor but the shower tray, sink and toilet.

5) the camp was next to a fairly busy road.

6) the pub did meals, but not on a Sunday & it was closed on the Sunday night.

Me & the party wouldn't go back, would only recommend a one night stay max.

Terry, the meeter & greeter was pleasant though.

After visting this site many times, I think its going down hill fast. The wardens dog was left to roam round and do its mess, I had to ask him twice to pick it up, as it was next to our tent, which was not good.

Had good times at this site, it's in a lovely spot, to visit Bakewell and Matlock which has a lot of nice shops and pubs, also found a lovely pub up the road from the camp site, The Church. The food there was lovely, two sunday dinners for 10.

The toilet and showers need a good clean at the camp site. Seems a shame it's gone down hill ! Hope thing's get better.

Arrived without booking, we never usually book campsites, we like 'seat of the pants' biking, and after all you can always go somewhere else. Landlady at pub was great and we duly paid for two nights.

This is a great spot, and we spent two lovely days around Matlock and the railway, and had several really good meals in 'The Compass' at a wondrously low price. Top marks for that.

Site facilities are basic and adequate for a couple of bikers (took a friend this time) and for anyone else come to that. I love sites that are quiet and small, although the field was perhaps bigger than we first thought, not that that is of any matter.

A good shower and toilet is in the pub, accessible all day round. Fees are good value. Would use this site again if we need to go Matlock.

I booked in on 23 July till mon 25 July. Grass long on site, only stopped one night despite paying and booking for 2 nights. Very noisy site due to people being allowed to play football till 3. 30am Sunday morning and shouting. Although resident warden was permanently sited on same field chose to say nothing, these were not young people 25 to 30 years old. When leaving site complained to landlord/landlady, response was we've all been young once.

Only 2 portaloos on site, although toilets available in pub which was part of site.

No lighting on site, also no play ground area. Pub adjacent to site which did cooking between designated hours, provision shop ten min walk.

GREAT SITE, lovely views, friendly landlord and lovely food across at the pub. Toilet across at the pub along with two showers. There is a shop 5 mins walk away along with park and a steam train that runs in to Matlock, you can also catch a bus in to Bakewell, lots to do and see. There is also a lovely walk across the fields into Matlock. Three other pubs are in walking distance. Just wish they would cut the grass more can be a little to long. Been to this site now for the last three years a number of times love it !.
