Reviewer: Siloans 16 reviews from this member

Stayed for two weeks on this wonderful site. In our caravan with awning.

There is a long list of reasons to stay here, Nat and Mark were very helpful and run the site fantastically I cannot fault them.

Two showers that on 1st impression look very old but they are deceivingly good lots of free hot water.

The toilets were very clean found the etched graffiti from the 70s on the inside of the doors amusing.

Well stocked shop with all that you need to get by rather than the 10 min drive down into Glossop or nearby village. Glossop has large supermarkets and of course one of the largest caravan retailers in the country always worth a visit.

The site was very easy to get into although worried by the reviews previously. Pitches are grass with grass/plastic mesh for the awning. Very flat with 16 amp (did not trip once).

Satellite was possible even with hills in the direction but not a problem.

Phone reception was bad Orange/T-Mobile 1-2 bar Vodaphone 2 bar O2 1bar but if you move around it will lose signal.

This site is as close as you get to being in the countryside away from everything.

There are loads of walks straight from the site also visit the quarry above the site wow its fantastic well worth the walk.

Bikes were a bit harder to use due to the very busy main road outside the site but I must add that you do not hear it.

The Pennine way passes just a little walk from the site and many back packers appear and disappear regularly

The site has a drying room and washing up area.

There are refurbishments on going now with a new reception and soon to be larger showers.

I will revisit this site in years to come as itís just so nice.

I know that most people donít read to the bottom so I place the only criticism here the working farm nearby has dogs that do not stop barking for what seems like hours we thought it might be kennels but looks like just 3 dogs oh well not the end of the world.

After an exhausting(still much snow left at the 5th of april) first stage of the Pennine Way, I arrived at the lovely Crowden Caravan Camp Site. I was immediately put into the drying room, to warm up with a large cup of tea(free!).

Very comforting also the refreshing shower in the very clean and tidy facilities.

Nice spot for my tent, well cultivated grass area.

Wonderful internet-support for organising the return easyjet ticket home for the next day.

Nat and her husband really gave big and strong support for someone so exhausted as I was.

Never underestimate nature esp. Not in the mountains!

No midges at this time of year but still a little on the cold side. Reception very welcoming and the Site is in a very good location for walking. Went for long walk over towards Mossley and visited the pub recommended in Tintwistle The Bulls Head on our way back. Great pub and had a good couple of hours but it is a 3 mile walk back to the site. All the grounds are very well kept and the toilet area was very clean. If you are not walking or going into the great outdoors there isn't much to do. We will be visiting again.

Lovely quiet campsite tucked away in a little glade surrounded by the beautiful peak district hills. You can hear running water from the nearby stream and the wardens were 1st class, offering assistance with pitching, advice/maps on lovely walks in the surrounding area and best of all for us allowing a late departure at no extra charge. Facilities were very clean and more than adequate for for a small site.

Based on one of the previous reviews I think it's worth qualifying the comment about midges by say they are a seasonal pest in many areas when the conditions are right, take repellent during the summer but we had no issues with any midges during our stay in early October.

We took the walk around the reservoir across from the site with the help of a map from the wardens. Took our two kids 6/3 and whilst it was maybe about 3-4 miles it was very achievable as a family and really enjoyable with some stunning views.

This is a lovely campsite for adults and children, very clean toilet and shower blocks with plenty of hot water. Mark the campsite manager is a fantastic person he cant do enough for you and will go out of his way to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. There is a little shop on site stocking essentials. Loads of nice walks just out of the campsite. The MIDGES were bad bad but the shop stocks insect repellent. I have been going to this campsite for almost 7 years now and every time I go back its excellent and I will keep going back every year.

Reviewer: Lynda190graham 7 reviews from this member

The turn off from the A628 is not clearly marked. If you are travelling from the direction of Manchester the left turn is about 200 metres from the Crowden name sign. The signs indicating that there is a Camping and Caravan Club site are very small and behind a wall, look out for the signs for the youth hostel. The intial approach is deceptively wide and then narrows to a walled single track road, which has plenty of width for all units. The tricky bit is at the end where, as first time visitors we did not know where the entance was. This is important for positioning the caravan for a left hand jig into the site via a narrow entrance gate. When we queried the restricted access we were told that the gatepost for pedestrian access can be lifted out giving an additional metre of width. As it was we managed entrance and exit without problem.

Mark and Nats gave a warm and friendly welcome but their warning about the midges set the tone for our stay. Before we could apply protective cream my wife and I had already been bitten many times.

Although the were set times for reception to be open the wardens turned out of their caravan even after 9pm when backpackers arrived.

The shop was small but had all the basics.

The facilities are basic but spotlessly clean and we never had to queue, even though the site appeared to be full to overflowing. We had three backpacker tents pitched close together and immediately by our car such was the pressure on space.

Whilst we will not be returning, due to the midges it is ideally located for those who want to go on walks without using vehicles.
