 We've just had a lovely 2 nights here at this small and quiet site by the River Manifold.A Young couple are managing it. Toilet and shower facilities were clean. 2 showers in both gents and ladies.free hot water. Cost for 2 of us was 12 a night. Site alongside the river is very picturesque.We pitched near the river which was very calming with bubbling water.however the couple before us had said that with the rains the lower part of the site had got boggy near the river and a car had had to be towed out.

Pub across the road is busy and on Sunday night had Brass band practise which was a bit of a treat to listen to.local beers available here.

The site is very convenient for start of Manifold way which we cycled and not too far from starts of Tissinton and High Peak trails which we also biked.

Would definitely return here.

 Bank house park is the new name for the campsite already known on UK campsite as the Manifold Inn Buxton Derbyshire . We came and stayed here as family groups celebrating a friends big birthday. There were 11 pitches and these included tents, a caravan, a motor home and a horse box. We were lucky and had brilliant weather. The owners were very accommodating The campsite is very picturesque with a small stream running down one side where the kids loved to play. We pitched up either side of the small track which runs through the campsite field. A small slope has to be negotiated to use the facilities. Toilet and shower facilities are new and kept very clean being mopped frequently. There are only two showers and two toilets in each of the male/female blocks. Two washing up sinks and one water pipe. The new owners are awaiting plans to extend the facilities. The cost was 16 for two adults two children tent and car. The turn into the campsite is very sharp beware. On Friday a two mile walk across fields took us to the beautiful village of Hartington where we sat outside the Charles Cotton inn eating door wedge sandwiches and drinking a glass or two. The landlord was most helpful with us being a big group. On Saturday we did a 5 mile circular route from Alstonefield taking us to Milldale along part of the Dovedale valley. We didn't stop at the George pub in Alstonefield to eat as the landlady was very off maybe because we were a large group so we got into our cars and went for lunch at the Charles Cotton where we were made to feel very welcome. Opposite the entrance to the campsite is the Manifold inn a very welcoming pub. The landlord even provided a television for the England football match on the Friday night .Serves reasonable homemade food. They even made a sticky toffee pudding for 32 of us when we finished the weekend of with Sunday lunch.

 We couldnt have picked a worse weekend to go camping. May bank holiday - it rained and rained and rained. This did not detract from a lovely site though and we are sure it would have been perfect if the weather had held up. We camped with some friends and our 2 year old and their 10 month old. We stayed in the smaller field near to the facilities and main house. Some pitches are on a slope so we stayed near to the path which was flat. Right next to the river so would have been great had it stayed dry (although we are told that the rain kept the gnats away!) Toilet block was about 50 metres up a slight slope and part of the main farmhouse. Quite basic but clean and plenty of hot water for showering. Owners were friendly throughout and the site has a 10.30 pm noise curfew which made it very peaceful. The Manifold Inn is literally 100 yards across the path and over the bridge. Very good food although it does get very busy (especially if the weather isnt so nice). Bakewell and Buxton within driving distance (approx half an hour).
We had a barbeque and stone slabs are provided to put any disposable barbeques on (although they do get taken very quickly!)

The location is very picturesque and I think we'd definitely consider going to this site again.

 We arrived at this site on Friday night and we got a lovely pitch right beside the river. The site seems mainly for families and the children made some lovely friends straight away. They spent ages catching little fish in the river.
Although we rang to check that the refurbishments had been finished (as previous reviews suggested) we were told that they had been finished but they had not. There was one working shower for men and one for women and three and two toilets respectively. There was no water connected to the hot taps in the toilets for men or women and the washing up sink has just one cold tap. However the shower (which runs on tokens- 50p for five mins) was nice and new and hot. There is no toilet paper provided so remember to take your own! (we heard some desperate laughing due to possible post number 2 problems!). The site was completely quiet after about nine pm and there was a good atmosphere. The nearest chippy that we could find was a good drive away (20mins or so?). The "Smithy's Arms" in Monyash (15mins drive) is a great little cafe that does generous sized brilliant tasty breakfasts.
We would probably go here again but when all the work is finished when it will be very nice.

 I contacted the Manifold Inn to enquire about availability. The lady I spoke to was very honest and explained that the site facilities were not quite finished, but that we would be welcome to stay.
We enjoyed our stay and found the basic facilities to be better than others we have experienced.
It was lovely to be able to pitch our tent wherever we wished and our children loved playing in the river which runs alongside the site.
There are some excellent cycle and walking routes in the area as well as some wonderful caves for the children to explore. And of course, a lovely Inn for dinner.
I have recommended this site to our friends and we will return.
