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 !.

Just spent one night at this site. When we arrived we were not impressed at all. We went to look around the area for alternative sites but failed so we returned. We are now glad we did. It is very basic and cheap (£10pn) but the showers and toilets are clean. We were able to pitch the tent where we wanted and there was plenty of room between each tent.
We played a game of cricket together with out disturbing others and were able to have a laugh and a giggle without disturbing other campers. Only down side was having to cross a road to get to facilities which is not ideal in the middle of the night. Will revisit

We spent 2 nights here. It`s hard to find something positive to say. Grass too long, very uneven field, the 1 water tap was dirty, faulty and surrounded by muck, the toilets / showers were not great with loose toilet seats and no hand drying facilities and across a busy road, which was right next to the site with heavy lorries from about 5am.
Like I said it`s hard to find a positive and at £28 for 4 (£14pn) definitely not value for money.

I`m sure the pub grub might be fine but they don`t cook on Tuesday nights (the night we arrived).
