 I can't fault this site in any way.

Upon arrival the owners were friendly and said we could pitch anywhere in the first field. I personally much prefer this rather than being told where to pitch.

We pitched up at the bottom of the field adjacent the railway track. The passing trains didn't bother us in the slightest. The noise literally lasts less than 10 seconds. Either the trains stopped at night or didn't wake us up. I assume there was some early morning trains but these didn't wake us.

The site is in an excellent location with lovely views. We walked to Edale which took less than 30 minutes. There are 2 pubs here which are muddy boot and dog friendly.

The toilets and showers were clean and modern.

Overall this is definitely one of the better sites we've stayed at and is great value. We will probably revisit the site in the future.

 We stayed here for 3 nights with our kids. Here is our summary:


- Beautiful views of Mam Tor

- Small campsite

- Can arrive late as owner on site

- Modern toilet block


- Adjacent to busy railway line (freight trains during night)

- Sloping field, no flat pitches

- Sheep poo all over camping field

- Only one shower cubicle

 Lovely basic campsite, well worth a stay if you like a simple field set up.

The toilets where clean, the shower looked clean although I didn't use it so can't comment further. With hot water for the pans I couldn't ask for more.

The camp site is situated in a valley so be aware that mobile reception was a bit hit and miss. For me the noise from the train wasn't really an issue as it wasn't all night. It was nice that the dog camped for free and there's a handy public footpath opposite the site for the first/last walk of the day.

Due to rain we had couple of meals out, fish and chips in near by Bradwell (15mins by car). And a meal at the Ye Olde Nags Head in Castleton.

All things considered we will camp here again.

 Stayed at Greenacres Campsite over the bank holiday weekend. On arrival, we checked in at the house and we're informed that the site only accepted cash. Not usually a problem, but as they had mentioned they ran a business we assumed they would take card - not sure if the owner had a very dry sense of humour (he offered to shoot us if we used the wrong bins or stole bricks from his wall) but felt a bit uncomfortable asking if we could pay the next day. Apparently it does state cash only on the website, so be warned!

The location of the site was amazing, beautiful views of mamtor and the ridge with walks straight from the site. The facilities were adequate, not sure how busy the showers would be on a busy weekend as there is only one for each sex, but they worked well enough. We found no issues with the hygiene as others have stated but we mostly used the facilities in our caravan.

As other people have mentioned, there are noise issues with the trains, but it's livable.

The main issue we had, which would stop us returning, is that the back field that we were in was covered in sheep poo. And I mean COVERED! We had two small children with us and it was not possible to let our toddler play as she ended up with poo all over her. It stinks and stained her cloths. It's really sad as it ruined what could have been a lovely site in an amazing location.

 Beautiful site in a lovely location. The village is not far from this site, where there is a pub and plenty to look round.

Really great site for children, nice and quiet (no noise after half 10) and lots of space for them to play.

Great value and some excellent views, will recommend and will be back again!

 Wow! Great site set in a beautiful location just outside the village itself. Despite the weather for two days the views from the site onto Losehill were fabulous. The site owners were incredibly friendly, as were the sheep that were close by, great for the kids. The reindeer were superb, too!

The site was no noise post 1030 pm which was great, especially with two kids.

Toilet facilities were incredibly clean, modern close to the site as was the chemical disposal area.

The price was very reasonable, making the site very good value for money. The walk into the village takes 15 minutes and you end up right next to the nags head pub, which is well worth the short trek.

Thanks for a fab stay

 This site is in a stunning location - Hope Valley is really beautiful, also quiet and peaceful. If you are walkers like us the site is in a fantastic location - you can do long walks through Edale, Mam Tor, Kinder Scout etc etc straight from the campsite. It wasn't a problem for us as we were there before the season started and so had the place to ourselves, but there is only one female and one male shower which I imagine might be a problem when the site is busy.

 We came here for 3 nights at the beginning of August for the Spoonfest event in Edale, one and a half miles away. We were very glad that we chose Greenacres, which was much less crowded than other sites nearer the festival.

It was easy to find a peaceful and nearly flat pitch. The view of Nam Tor from our tent was just breathtaking. As others have said, the railway line is close by, but the trains are mostly short commuter units and don't make much noise. They certainly didn't bother us!

The new toilet block is excellent and kept very clean. There's only one shower per side. The hot water is included in the price of the pitch, though.

Oh, and the wifi is useful if you want to blog about your experiences each day.

All in all, highly recommended.

 Upon arrival was not booked in even though we emailed booking request and received conformation 6 weeks prior to going. Then tried to charge double the tariff as stated on web site (this has now been rectified on website). The lady did however check the website and gave us that tariff. The grass however was too long, needed cutting. The toilet and shower facilities are less than adequate for the size of the site. 1 shower, 2 toilets. Must have had well over 30 units on site. The shower drain was blocked leaving water covering the whole of the toilet floor leaving you to stand in other peoples dirty water.

 My partner and I stayed here along with our two dogs for two nights. The campsite was easy to find and we received a friendly welcome upon arrival.

The campsite is fairly basic and we were told to pitch our tent anywhere we liked. The grass could have done with a cut to make it easier to pitch. There is a small washing up area in between the shower block. There were two toilets and one large shower cubicle. We felt that the site needed at least another shower as we had to wait until after 11am to shower and queuing is near impossible as the area is too small. One of the ladies toilets ran out of toilet roll on the Saturday afternoon and wasn't replaced until late the following morning. On a plus side, the blocks were very clean and the showers have a temperature control.

The main downside for me was the field location. On the one side is the train track which has trains going past every 20mins into the night. On the other is the road and we were woken up by the sound of cars and shouting cyclists on Saturday morning. We did however enjoy the sound of the sheep on the hill opposite and the view if the hills is very good.

For the price of 6 per person per night and no charge for the dogs, it was value for money.
