Stayed here a couple of nights. No great dramas. The site managers were very helpful and gave a good rundown of pitch site and local facilities. All pitches are under shade of trees and were reasonably maintained. We were fortunate to be next to the site tap.

As has been mentioned in an earlier review the toilet and shower block lets the site down. Although it looks quite new and very Nordic looking it is uncomfortable to use. We are relatively new to camping so it is the first time I have had to pay for showers. The space in the cubicle is very tight. If I had a cat I would not be able to swing it! If you have a shower at night or have extended toileting needs, be warned, the light PIR sensor only lasts about 3 minutes so you will have to exit the shower or toilet and wave your hands around to put the lights on.

Compared to other sites we have used this year it is a little pricey especially having to pay for showers!

I probably will not use this site again because of the above.

Fantastically disappointing, the owner wants you crammed in like sardines, crossing guy lines to ensure he earns the absolute maximum for the ill maintained quagmire of a field. This possibly once lovely campsite is an insult to regular campers, the toilets are squalid there was little or no loo roll. The shop only sold sweets when it managed to open. Overall this is the worst site I've stayed on in Derbyshire. We had booked for two nights but left at 9 am after the first night. And you have to pay for showers that have automatic lights that go off after 60 seconds.

There is also an industrial estate 2 minutes walk away that doesn't get a mention in the description.

Please avoid this site at all costs.

We stayed at this lovely site over the spring bank holiday weekend. After a slightly unusual approach to the campsite (through an industrial estate!) we were very pleasantly surprised. Lovely shady pitches in a wooded area.

We had booked a large pitch with electricity, the pitch seemed to be pretty well-maintained.

The owner was friendly and provided us with information about the site and the local area.

There is a small kids play area on site, as well as a 'nature trail' in the woods. We noticed some of the children enjoying making dens in the woods, which we thought was great. There is also a petting farm attached to the campsite, which is free for campers to visit at the end of the afternoon. It was perfect for our two-year old, as there was a huge sandpit and lots of garden toys and Wendy houses etc.

The facilities on site were adequate, if perhaps a bit basic. 2 toilets and 2 showers each for men and women. Having said that, we never really had to queue, and the site was relatively busy. I thought the showers were expensive at 1 for 6 minutes - the water flow was variable, and as the pitches are not particularly cheap (23 for large pitch with electric) I thought it was bad we had to also pay for showers.

Washing up facilities were adequate and there is an area set aside for barbecues which I thought was a good idea.

My only other gripe was there only appears to be one tap for the whole camping field, although this didn't really cause us a problem it would have been nice to have a tap nearer our pitch.

Really nice, family-friendly campsite. We all loved it and would definitely like to return in the future

We stayed here for 5 nights at Easter. The setting for the site is nice, pitches under the trees and lovely views. But the facilities are very poor. It is nice little wooden hut for the toilets and showers, but that is the problem 'little'. Only 2 toilets and 2 showers in the men's and women's side. The shower cubicles / changing area are so small that to get in you practically have to stand in the shower to close the door! There is one coat hook in the changing area (no chairs etc as no space) so you have to decide do you hang up your towel or your clothes (they won't both fit on the small hook!). The shower is 1 for 6 minutes. But once again no shelf or anything to put your shower gell/ hair shampoo etc so down on the floor they go! And do not entertain trying to take a child in with you as there is only just enough room for you to get changed! I found having a shower here the most stressful time ever! But at least we had a bit of light in the ladies. My husband said the men's was extremely dark and the light was on a timer, problem was the light quite often went off when he was in the shower! If you just want a general wash there are no vanity sinks, you will have to wash at the sinks everyone uses after going to the loo (so no privacy!). All in all the facilities are not user friendly. We will definitely not be going back here.

A group of us spent some of Easter weekend at this site.

On the plus side it is in a good location for walking into Buxton and reaching other parts of the area. Once through the industrial estate and up the rough track it is nice to be camped amongst the trees.

Beware though that the owner does insist that you leave when wind speeds are high!

There are a few disappointing things about the site. The toilet/shower block is lovely - warm and clean but they charge 20p per minute for a shower which is luke warm. There are nowhere near enough hooks around to hang your coat, clothes, towels. There is also nowhere to plug in a hairdryer (only a shaver socket). I notice that these issues have been mentioned in other reviews - but nothing done about it.

We also don't understand why they charge 3 per night for a dog - what exactly does this cover? There are no dog waste bins for them to manage or a dedicated dog walking field so what do the extra costs relate to?

Gravel road full of pot holes leading up to site, we were shown to pitch and given local information. Pot wash was a basic 2 sinks with plenty of hot water. Only 1 fresh water tap situated in middle of the site. I did not see an elsan point. Showers x2 toilets x2 1 for 6 minutes not much room and only 1 peg to hang towels clothes. Nowhere to put shampoo etc.

Good base for Buxton, Bakewell and Manchester - lovely area.
