First visit to the Duke of York - new site facilities spotless. Owners very friendly and helpful. Great site if you like walking. The pub is great ended up eating there twice and we only had 2 nights ( very dog friendly - more dogs than people one night !) Will be back and will not hesitate to tell our camping friends how great this place is.

Campsite was good, toilet block clean,

We had to book for a minimum stay of three nights as it was a bank holiday and where allocated pitch 24, But there are unknown pitches! On Sunday night we returned from a day out to find a campervan and awning within a meter of our van. When we complained we where told that was pitch 24a and there more unknown pitches on the site.

We will not be returning!

Did you stay at this campsite between Dec 2014 and February 2015?

Raw TV are making a Channel 4 winter weather documentary about people who enjoy the outdoors in the winter time. They have been filming in the Peak District and are looking to get in touch with any caravanners who have stayed at the site at the Duke of York, Pomeroy, near Flagg, Derbyshire this winter. They are looking for any short videos people have shot on their smartphones or cameras during December, January and February at the site, either from inside a caravan or outside.

Please email winter@raw.co.uk to get in touch to find out more.

Our 3rd visit, still love it.

Keith, one of the owners stopped cooking during Sunday lunch service and towed us out with his Discovery wearing his chef whites when our snow chains broke on our second visit end of January What a hero.

On our visit last weekend we find they have now put clothes hooks in the shower/loo block.

I winced when they told me it was 20 a night even in February but now I've been I think it was worth every penny and I can't wait to get back. I was attracted by the photos of the view and I wasn't disappointed: a huge vista over miles of the Peak District, I just loved watching the snow and hail storms as they blew across the countryside. The location is great, only a short drive out of Buxton and yet you really do feel you have got away from it all here. There are nearby footpaths if you like walking and there is a field adjacent if you want to give the dogs 5 mins. The facilities were superb: stylish and spotlessly clean and delightfully warm. The Duke of York has a restaurant that is popular with locals; the bar had a good atmosphere that makes you feel like you are welcome - the real fire added to the effect. My only gripe is that it was a bit pricey. Very pleased with the hardstanding pitch with EHU and water. This site is relatively new and can only improve over time when all the new hedging that has been planted matures and offers some shelter from the biting winds - I just hope they don't obscure the fantastic view. Overall, the site is a credit to the management and I wish I was still there!

Reluctant to leave a good review as I want to make sure it's not full the next time we want to visit!

Spent 3 nights over the worst weather period, thick snow and biting winds. The managers and the wardens did a fab job to make sure no-one was disapponted over New Year. Even after getting a tractor in to clear the ground of snow, it was still bad, so they went the extra mile! Caravans and Motorhomes were parked on the site roadway and on the pub car park as half the site was not useable, but EHU was avaialble for everyone. Lovely atmosphere was created.

Fabulous views, very close to High Peak Trail for walking. Morrisons supermarket 10 mins away in Buxton for supplies.

Shower block and loos spotless with underfloor heating. Small niggle - somewhere to hang clothes perhaps? Not a big deal, I just threw them over the door top. Tent dwellers may appreciate a hair drier.

Pub has good food - good quality cooked from scratch 'pub fayre' and priced appropriately. Real ales well kept and good price, wine a bit expensive at 16 for bottle of house.

Keith and Chris the managers are so much fun and the wardens, Phil and not sure of the lady's name are so helpful. A really hardworking team. We will be back!
