Can anyone recommend a site in the Peak District or Yorkshire (basically anywhere within a couple of hours drive of South Yorkshire) that's reliably quiet and peaceful? We've become increasingly fed up with other people on sites playing music and generally being loud and obnoxious, to the point that it's killing my love for camping. Please suggest nice quiet sites that might help me to get it back!

Heber Farm, Buckden - I did a review. Quiet with a shower and toilet over the road in the farm. Just a field really. Pub in between field and farmyard!

Must add that we have been going to Field head and Upper Booth in the Peak District for years and years and have never had a bit of bother.

Not sure what sort of camping/tent you have but Field head is even better with a small tent as you can pitch by the river, even over a little stream. They always make room for a three/four man tent in my experience.

A tiny tent the other side of the stream at Field head is probably one of my favourite camping experiences.

We've been to Upper Booth before, it was pretty nice apart from children chasing chickens at 5am! I'd take that over drunk obnoxious people any day though.
We like North Lees near Hathersage, we've camped there loads and only ever once had a problem - group of drunk people shouting and playing loud music way into the night. We spoke to the warden the next morning and the people were immediately asked to leave. Apparently they'd made a real mess around their tents as well, the warden wasn't happy.

Hard to know what to suggest then really. Nowhere is guaranteed to be perfect!

I love camping, we live more than a mile from our nearest neighbour and have a garden upwards of an acre so I am really choosy about campsites as I am obviously not that used to folk being in close proximity . We usually have a great experience. Only once in the last few years have I had a bad one (Waveney River Centre - see my review).

I find that basic no frills type places, a shower it you are lucky, the best sort for like minded campers.

I definitely agree, we go for the most basic sites in the hope that it'll only be nice "proper" campers there rather than people wanting to get drunk and be loud. I live in a residential area but my garden is more peaceful than some campsites I've been on lately!
Thanks for your suggestions, we'll definitely have a look at Field Head. I take it the trains aren't too much of an issue?

Grin Low Caravan Club site, Buxton Perhaps??

Ok it's a caravan site, but there is a couple of tent pitches we saw used.

Been a few times so far, and it was quiet every time we went.

May be a bit out of your area but look at New Hall Farm at Edingley near Southwell in Nottinghamshire. Very quiet site only noise at night is the local owl population!

Wyse House near Malton. Was a Certificated Site, but I don't recall being asked for my CCC card.
Sutton Park (in the estate of Sutton House) north of York. You'll problably have it to yourself. Just phone to check there isn't an event as they do weddings.
If you're not a CC member, it would be wise to phone - we know one site where the tents were non-vehicle (bikes, walkers erc). And there's a surcharge if you're not Members in either club's big sites (i.e not Certificated).

If you don't have any children Cloverfields near Buxton would be perfect, our kids are grown up now so we started looking for adult only and came across this place.

Has super tent pitches, very large with own electric, water supply and bins, lovely facilities and the bonus of an onsite café that does beautiful food. As we have a dog, we have ours delivered to the tent, all on proper plates and served with a smile.

There is a small fishing lake and a nice dog walk.

You'd be hard pushed to find anywhere more peaceful.
