Reviewer: Jmambd 1 review from this member

Just returned from this lovely tranquil site which is perfectly located for tissington and monsal bike trails. It is on a working farm and we enjoyed watching the sheep and cows in the next field. There is a small wildlife pond so young children need supervision. No dedicated play facilities but plenty of space to ride bikes play with a ball etc

Electric hook up shares a field with 4 yurts but these were only occupied at the weekend, there are several other mostly sloping fields without hookup so a very spacious feel.

Several overnight Duke of Edinburgh school parties while we were there meant early morning and evening congestion in the showers at times (4 in the ladies and 4 in the gents). Cubicles were rather snug, they have hooks on back of doors and a curtain to stop clothes getting splashed with cute hanging basket for toiletries but no seat or shelf. You need a supply of 20p coins. There is also a family room with toilet, basin and large shower which would accommodate a wheelchair. All were cleaned regularly but the drains were sometimes slightly smelly.

In the same building are 4 washing up sinks with plenty of hot water, a freezer for ice blocks and a drinks machine for hot drinks and cold cans 80p. Maps of local area and tourist leaflets. There is a small bike rack outside also useful for waiting dogs. It is quite a walk from most of the site so a torch is useful.

You can hire fire baskets and order breakfast baps and pizzas from the friendly and helpful reception which has a tiny shop. Several pubs that serve food are nearby. Supermarket is in Bakewell.

Given the number of cyclists visiting the area I am sure a larger covered bike rack would be a welcome addition. Somewhere that allowed bikes to be stored for the night.

The location of this site is spot on, it is so peaceful and has excellent views over the fields.

The site is made up of 3 camping fields, they are quite sloping and a bit of care does need to be taken when choosing your pitch, however it is possible to pitch relatively on the level so to speak.

There are toilets and showers for both the men and women and also a family room and pot washing facilities- all located together in one building, it is a fair walk if you are pitched at the far end of the first field. We visited over the bank holiday and the site was fully booked, however we didn't have to wait for toilets/showers at all but we did have to wait for pot washing on one occasion. The facilities were ok. Not the best and not the worst, the showers didn't seem particularly clean if I'm honest but they were ok.

The ability to buy breakfast rolls and freshly made pizza's is a great little extra to the site as is having the chip van visit on the Friday evening after our late arrival it was great to be able to get some food without having to cook.

On the whole, we really enjoyed our stay- our first camping trip after a couple of years break and we would visit Knotlow farm again but probably not on Bank Holiday as we hope the showers etc. Would probably be cleaner out of peak times.

This farm based site is situated in a village called Flagg, between Bakewell and Buxton.

It is spread over four fields, many of which are sloping in places. Chestnut field at the top end of the site, is much flatter than the rest of the site. On the other fields, you will need to look harder for flat ground, especially if you are in large family tent. Smaller units shouldn't have a problem.

For glampers there are 4 yurts, and in the same field, there are a few EHU pitches. Close to this field and near the toilets is a wildlife pond.

All the facilities are in one superb central barn:

Amazing hot, clean showers (20p for 2 mins) (4 male, 4 female)

Rain water flushing toilets (4 male plus urinals, 5 female)

Wash basins with soap and hand dryer (no hair dryer)

Washing up sinks with free washing up liquid

Family shower room with toilet and baby change

Tourist leaflets, maps and a hot and cold drinks machine.

From the main farmhouse, you can buy basic provisions and order hot food. Fire pits can be hired, 5 per night.

Lovely views and great walks from the site. We ambled over the fields to the pub at Monyash which does food and had an excellent beer garden backing on to children's play area/park. (No playground on campsite)

We stayed over the bank holiday weekend and although the site was full it didn't feel too crowded or noisy. We didn't have to queue for loos or showers. On Monday morning, most people left and the site felt enormous!

Plenty to do in the area, good location. We would recommend this site to couples/families, who are happy to make their own entertainment and like being outdoors!

A great, rambling site nestling in the rolling hills between Flagg and Monyash. It's well away from any A roads and as such is nice and quiet (though you may hear a few aircraft up above (Manchester airport flight-path, maybe?).

We camped in the large 'Chestnut' field - undulates a little but kids can easily find a 'flat bit' for playing on. The owners/staff at reception are very helpful and the shop is stocked with matches, lighters, disposable bbqs and the like.

There are also firepits available for hire at 5, though I'd say the 4. 50 charged for a small bag of logs is a wee bit overpriced, and 20p for a 2 minute shower is a bit cynical in this day and age, surely?

Generally though pricing is very good - 8 per adult p/n and 5 per child (rather than priced per tent size).

The 'no noise' policy (11pm-7am) is mercifully strictly enforced! An horrendous group were evicted during our stay, having being up past midnight with loud music and drunken singing. They purposefully left piles of glass, plastic and dirty nappies behind them. We all cleaned up after them. 1-0 to the Good People.

Monyash, a mile or so's walk from the site is a lovely little village, with an awesome pint of Black Sheep at the Bull's Head (they also have an extensive kiddie's play area).

Be sure to have a look at Arbor Low stone circle a couple of miles south of Monyash too. Very impressive.

Would definitely return.

Three lovely nights on this well run site. Excellent facilities which were clean and well maintained.

Very quiet during the week, lots of space, no queues - the only thing that changed on the Friday was the number of units; still lots of space, quiet, no queues.

You need to search to find a level pitch in most of the fields, but this did mean there was lots of space around.

Stunning views, walked from the site to Lathkill Dale so I didn't drive again until I left.

Excellent value with price based on number of people - it was nice not to be paying for more than just myself

Very clean site with good, clean facilities. Hot/cold drink vending machine! Pizza's baked on site (tasty too!). Breakfast butties can also be ordered to pick up!

We've never known such luxury.

The fire baskets are great if you want to toast mashmallows. But you have to pay 5 each night you want one! and buy somme wood to burn too.

Everything went quiet before 11 pm. All in all a good site and a great night's sleep.
