 We stayed for 6 nights from the first day of the season. What a lovely site. Nice clean toilets and showers. Station 5 minutes walk away. Bus stops outside site. 2 dog friendly pubs in village 5 minutes walk away. Stay here, you will like it as we did. Thanks for a great stay.

 We stayed at this lovely site last weekend. We've been trying to book this site for 3 years, we finally made it this time. We were greeted by a lovely lady who showed us to our pitch and gave us a site map. Its well cared for and nicely laid out, plenty of space between units. The toilet and shower blocks were kept very clean with no queues whenever we went in. There are ample washing up sinks with plenty of hot water and draining space. The shop looked stocked up, although we did not need anything.

We wandered into to the village on Saturday evening, a nice ten minutes walk. There is the Old Hall Hotel which seems very popular, meals looked huge and plenty were eating. The other pub across the road, The woodruff arms, to me was run down with no atmosphere, so would not go there again.

Its a lovely 2 mile walk to Castleton, which had plenty going off on Sunday. We decided to catch the bus back to Hope, 1. 00 each, a bargain. Ye olde Cheshire Cheese pub, up Edale road is worth the walk. We sat in the lovely beer garden, which was a sun trap. All in all we had a fab weekend. We will certainly recommend this site to family and friends.

 The clue is in the name - this is a caravan park, where tents are an afterthought!

The tent field is furthest from the facilities in a damp area near a river with a water treatment unit of some sort that hums all night. But that pales into insignificance compared to the noise of the road with the trucks thundering up and down it to the nearby quarries and the noise of the trains on on the mainline between Leeds and Sheffield. And, to top it all, there is an incredibly bright security light which is on ALL NIGHT in the campsite which blazes into the tent field. We could almost read by it in our tent! None of this made for a good night's sleep.

On the plus side, the site is clean, well organised and a very short walk to Hope which has plenty of facilities. The pitches are clearly marked, the welcome was friendly and the on site shop is well stocked. There is a freezer for ice packs (and some to borrow whilst yours are chilling) and a boules court.

The showers and loos are clean but there are only four showers for ladies and four for men which is not many for the size and popularity of the site and the block was pretty chilly even in July.

There are plenty of washing-up sinks but they are all incredibly low.

In summary, I would not recommend this site to anyone in a tent!

 Third time here and agree with all previous complimentary comments and so will only add a few not touched on recently. Hope village has everything in it i. E. Pubs, shop, take-aways however the best traditional country pub Cheshire Cheese is worth seeking out for its real ales alone, turn right before the supermarket and carry on for about 10 mins on foot along the Edale road. There is a bus stop outside the site entrance, we went to Sheffield on it, buses do run through the eve. Castleton is amazing for pubs, I counted five, there maybe more. Yes the toilets are outdated but functional and cleaned daily. We chose a pitch by the river to avoid any road noise

 Visited here with friends for a couple of nights in mid May. Great site in a fantastic location. We were in a motorhome and had friends in tents with us. We weren't happy with the pitch we had been allocated but the staff were so helpful in finding us a more suitable pitch. Staff were all really friendly and couldn't do enough to help.

Toilets nice and clean with really hot showers and washing up facilities good, nice clean well kept site. Easy walk into Hope and Castleton, would recommend the Curry Cabin in Hope for a nice Indian.

Third visit to this site over the past few years and would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

 I always have two things in mind when I write my reviews: would I go back to the site and would I recommend it to anyone else. In the case of Laneside I'm afraid it's no and no.

The location of the site could hardly be better. Situated in the glorious Hope Valley, only a few minutes walk from Hope village and with a railway station just across the road, it's ideal for a few days away. Unfortunately the layout of the site is a blot on the landscape and the owners have made things even worse by cynically cramming as many units as possible onto the site.

In fairness, the site was full on the weekend we went but that's not a bad time to judge a site. We were fortunate in having one of the better pitches and thank god we did. Even from our pitch we were surrounded by caravans and motorhomes. Cheek by jowl is an accurate description and looking out of our motorhome windows all we could see was other vans etc. I don't expect to be in splendid isolation when I go to a commercial site but I do expect a bit of space and privacy.

I'm afraid the owners of this site seem to only be focused on as many bookings on the site. Very short sighted plan IMHO.

Facilities are a little dated, excessive use of block paving is depressing on the eyes but the staff were friendly and helpful. Very small pitches and fairly expensive.

To add insult to injury, the local Indian restaurant the Curry Cabi. Managed to concoct the worse Indian takeaway I've had in 40 years, though both local pubs were good.

 Excellent location for exploring the Peak District around Hope Valley. Well stocked shop on site. Friendly helpful wardens - especially when we accidently knocked down a fire hose post! Plenty for the kids to explore, and there's a football field adjacent but think the river is a more exciting area for the kids.

Showers and separate toilet facilities always clean and tidy and warm when needed.

The site is on the main road into Castleton so expect road noise which includes trucks. If this would bother you then request a pitch further back because this shouldn't stop you visiting this excellent site.

We will be returning.

I don't usually give 10/10 but this is such a down to earth friendly campsite that I felt I could not mark them down.

Last but not least - the delightful friendly ducks

 We stayed at laneside for 5 nights. We found the facilities very clean nice warm showers. We couldn't fault the site. We found the wardens very helpful and friendly. The area is great for all types of walking. Local pubs are good for food and service. Overall a great 5 days. Would recommend the site and we will be returning.

Reviewer: Dubdogs 147 reviews from this member

 Used this site for walking in the area, we didn't book and there were plenty available when we turned up.

The grass on the pitch we were given was a little long. The site also runs along side the main road, so you do get road noise, which I did find a little distracting.

It's nice and handy for the village and footpaths. There is a nice butcher and shop in the village. The campsite also had a well stocked shop and information area.

The price of the site was a little high for the facilities on offer, but that aside, it was an ok site.

Reviewer: Currycampers 19 reviews from this member

 Lovely site, very friendly, helpful staff. Not very big pitches but this site is more about location. A 5 minute walk into Hope which has everything a happy camper needs. Great butcher, largish Spar, cafe, curry house, chinese and pubs for all tastes. Also a station to get into Sheffield or over to Edale. Situated just below Lose Hill and on the doorstep for Castleton and for Derwent reservoirs it's a credit to the staff that they keep it so beautifully when they could do a lot less and still pack it out. Perfect for us as we're just down the road but if we'd travelled from miles away it's the sort of site and location that puts a smile on your face.
