Just returned from a fantastic long weekend from the Duke of York. Campsite lovely. Clean site with friendly staff. Will definitely return in the near future and the food was outstanding with very quick service and a lovely atmosphere. Just a shame the weather was not a little better, but it was November

This is a great new site. The site is well laid out with lots of taps available. The toilet block is new with great facilities.

The location is very handy for the High Peak / Tissington Trail and the pub has great ale, food and customer service.

All you need for a great break.

Minot improvements needed; Some decent hooks in the toilet block, PIR internal lighting time need extending and a grey waste drain is needed.

Beautiful clean showers, real shower doors as well not curtains.

Toilets all good too, all kept clean

Lovely views

Signs for all the amenities clean, funky and well presented

Warden on site, but leaves you alone unless you need him

Pub on site obviously

Free Wifi in the pub, not much of a signal near the bottom of site, or in area really

Tissington Village and tearooms worth a chilled out visit.

Dog exercise is a big field so plenty of room but we didnít use it as we have an elderly boxer who can walk far these days.


Only 2 showers and 4 toilets for women and same for men on a site with 60 pitches with tents so could be a queue when busy, didnít bother us as we ended up on the Monday with the whole site to ourselves.

Pitches quite close together Ė you wouldnít get your caravan/motorhome with awning and a car on the pitch, Luckily we parked on the empty hardingstanding next to us, but if busy then you would have to park your car in pub car park, or try and squeeze it on the front of caravan space if not too big a car.

No grey waste disposal, you just pour that away into the grass by the walls/trees near your van.

No running water at the chemical waste point, so you cant wash your chemical toilet out, or wash any waste away in the toilet area.

You cant get onto the site until 2pm which is a bit of a waste of a day on a Friday if you are only going to the Sunday, as you have to leave by 11am, not so bad if you are there for a few days or a week.

There is some noise from the road being the A515, but didnít detract from our break.

Those are the main points, itís a basic site, with amenities but having seen how much has been spent on the facilities block, another few pounds would be beneficial for having a hose at the chemical point, and having a drain or something where your grey waste could go.

On the whole we had a nice time, weather was average but warm, but itís a walkers paradise, so it wouldnít matter what the weather was like for dog walkers and walkers.

Would we go back Ė yes we would but again when not busy.

Visited this site after rejecting another site on the same road. We had visited The Duke Of York a couple of years earlier and found this site to be under new management and wow what a change brand new level hardstanding pitches with good tv reception and brand new showers and toilets all well lit at night and a great pub (dog Friendly) with friendly staff and locals

Itís been just over 12 months since we have visited and what a change to the site. On our last visit the site resembled a building site, with work well underway to create new pitches, toilet block and general landscaping.

The site now has a modern, clean shower/toilet block, a choice of hard or grass pitches and separate camping field and dog exercise area; there is also low level lighting. There have been hundreds of trees planted around the parameter and once these start to mature, it will make the area more beautiful.

We had a pitch at the far end of the site which had spectacular views of the hills and fields. There are plenty of water points dotted about. Good Free-view TV reception using an aerial, mobile (02) good, although couldn't get any WIFI.

The pub has not lost any of its charm since the previous landlord left, and thankfully has not been modernised, but still in keeping with the environment. We had two evening meals and all the food was excellent and reasonably priced. The current landlord and staff very pleasant and the service was also excellent.

All in all for £20 per night, we would highly recommend a visit here and we look forward to returning again.

Looking for a lovely trip out? Ė Eyam Hall & Craft Centre (NT) and Plague Museum well worth a visit.

We just spent a weekend here, it is our latest visit to this site and the cost was £16 per night 2 persons in a tent.

The toilets are the cleanest I have ever seen on a camp site, brand new with good free showers. Full marks for that.

There is a pub close by too which is a bonus if travelling light, the food is OK and a good selection of beers, the service is hit and miss, there is no play area. You need to be off site by 1100.

I believe the plans are to run music events on what was the old field.

The camping field, the ground was hard and quite stony, it is sloping too, not too bad at the top, becoming more pronounced towards the bottom. There are allocated pitches however these are not currently marked. Plenty of taps on the hook up pitches.

The problem we found, yet again, was the noise, despite the 2230 rule, one party was up until 0400 drinking and making a racket, followed by football at 0430, another had music blaring out until past 0100, there was also a problem with kids kicking tents and running off, road noise is also a problem despite it being some distance away. We go for outdoor activities after a long hard weeks work, up early and out until late, we don't want grief, we want to just to relax and chill, it wasn't peaceful and I was glad to leave come 0600 Sunday morning. I suspect music events will exacerbate these problems.

This is a nice site, convenient for the High peak trail, it is not a quiet site however which is the main reason for the mark down. I would suggest enforcing the curfew within reason and ejecting those who cause problems.
