Reviewer: Rutland-Vagrant 3 reviews from this member

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!

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
