Great site which never stops improving.

My last visit was nearly 3 years ago and again they have improved, the dog walk area being the best I have come across, no roads to cross to get to it, an enclosed meadow field with lovely mazey paths cut thru it so ideal if you take a short walk or a long walk.

Shower blocks spotless and 2 blocks for both genders.

Great little bar with seating available outside also.

Well maintained grass pitches even after the awful weather we have had this year. I stayed on field with EHU and had no difficulty getting of although a tractor was on standby should assistance have been required.

Staff all friendly and helpful.

Plenty to do in surrounding area be it for thrill seekers at Alton Towers, those who like walking or just the historians amongst us with Chatsworth House being 10 minutes away. Not forgetting the ladies who like shopping with Meadowhall being half an hour and a beautiful drive away in Sheffield, Manchester is only a 40 minute drive also.

We have been to this site 4 or 5 times over the past couple of years and we love it. Does tend to get very busy so booking early is advisable. The electric field is on a slight slope at the top but quite a bit flatter at the bottom. There are 3 more non electric fields as well and fields for caravans and motorhomes.

There is also a large football field and play areas for the kids. The bar is good, stocked with local ales and the toilet blocks are always clean.

The showers are always warm if a bit cramped. There is also a shop but this doesn't seem to open very often. It is about a 20 minute walk down the hill into Bakewell which is a lovely place with the river running through it.

The Bakewell puddings are to die for.

This campsite is in a really good location just outside Bakewell which is about a 15 minute walk away, uphill on the way back. The pitches are slightly sloped but the views are amazing. There is a small shop and bar on site, which was a little pricy and the facilities are good. Bakewell is a busy little town with plenty of pretty shops and pubs and a small market area and riverside area too - well worth a visit although it does get very busy.

Just returned from a 2 night weekend break. Booked 2 tent pitches, campsite is in a lovely location with outstanding views out over the hills. We stayed in the Ashford area which was a mix of tents, caravans and motor homes, slight slope on some areas but this was not a problem in the slightest, facilities of a very high standard, members of our parties visited the showers at various times of the day and didn't have to queue at all, 2 different blocks, main next the the bar and reception then a porta Kabin block round the back, both with lovely hot showers and plenty of toilets. Big separate field for ball games and a great playground for kids, felt very safe for the children. There was a problem when we came back to the tent on the Saturday when the electric was off but the staff were on it and fixed the problem in minutes. You have to be off site at 12 but as it was such a lovely day we asked if we could stay, nobody was booked onto our pitches so for a further 5 we could stay until 6pm, was great meant a lovely chilled pack up with some time for sitting in the sun! Would not hesitate to recommend and shall be revisiting again soon!

Stayed here over may day weekend with friends. What a lovely site. From the moment we arrived everyone was so friendly & helpful.

We were on pitch 4 right next to the toilets which was handy! The pitch was a bit cramped for our large 8m x 5m tent & we had a water tap in front & footpath behind so it wasn't the most private pitch!

However we had a great time. The kids pay area is great & the pub really nice, serving local beers at reasonable prices.

The toilets/ showers were always kept clean although there were only 3 showers in the main block which could cause a problem at busy times

The walk to Bakewell takes about 20 mins but is well worth it when you get there.

We really enjoyed our long weekend here & will definitely be returning later on in the year.

Just returned from May Bank Holiday weekend at Greenhills. This is our second visit to the site. We loved our first visit and our second one was even better.

It is a great site for kids, you can let them play without to much worry. There is a nice friendly pub, prices are reasonable (3 a pint) couple of nice local brews Bakewell Best Bitter and Chatsworth Gold.

The site was very busy but it is a very peaceful site and relaxing, the views are amazing. Bakewell is a lovely town and only a mile away.

We went to the Village of Eyam, which is about 8. 5 miles away. This is worth a visit as there is a lot of history about the village and the Plague. Even nearly 350 years later you can't help but feel for the people who died.

The worst thing for us is getting to the site. We have to travel through Stockport and on a Friday in rush hour wasn't good.

Well worth it once we got there. It is on our favourites list and we will return

Nice site plenty of toilets & shower facilities. Very clean and kept tidy at all tines even in bad weather. The site is a bit hilly in some places so be careful when you book. Quite site never had any trouble with noise and the pub was a nice place to visit, there was a singer on Saturday which was good. When we were there they did the Hog Roast which was superb for the price. Park for the kids and a small shop stocking what ever you needed and if they didn't have they would try and get it next time. Nice touch was the reading room full of things to do and books. The hosts meet you and show you your plot and make sure you are happy with it. All staff very friendly and will be going back in the future.

We stayed here at Easter time, just after the large snowfall. We were allocated a pitch with plenty of space for our 3 man tent. The surrounding views were stunning, especially just after the snowfall.

There are two large shower and toilet blocs for each gender. The water was nice and warm but the actual shower cubicles were a bit cramped. There is also a small shop that stocks all your basic provisions and camping supplies.

There is also a nice little bar that sells a decent selection of ales, lagers, wines and spirits.

The site is situated a small walk (20mins) from the market town of Bakewell, which is full of cute little cafes, shops and of course bakeries that sell Bakewell Tart. The town gets very busy and parking can be a problem so walk in if you can.

There are lot of fantastic walks nearby, the view up at nearby Monsal Head is to die for and the newly opened trail offers a great circular walk around Ashford in the Water, Great Longstone and Little Longstone. The Bulls Head in Ashford in the Water does great home comfort food.

I will be returning to this site again soon.

Lovely site. Tidy and well set out, although a little bit cramped together. There is not enough privacy between pitches. The toilets/showers are very clean but also a bit cramped. The washing up area is outside which is fine in nice weather but not so good when cold or windy. There is no shortage of hot water.

There is a distinct lack of fresh water taps on site. We had to wander about a bit to find one. The waste disposal area is just a couple of big (very big) skips which are very open and unsightly. I would imagine they could smell a lot in the hot weather.

The dog walking facilities are very good.

The walking in this area is great. There are typed up sheets available for free from reception for local walks, (very helpful). You can walk very easily into Ashford in the Water or Bakewell. Both are lovely areas.

The shop on site was not open during our stay. There is also a bar on site but this was also closed. (Midweek)

The information room is tucked away behind the toilet block and although this was our second visit to this site, this was the first time I'd been aware of this facility. I heard about it from a fellow camper.

My biggest gripe about this site is the fact that dogs are charged for at 2. 00 each per night. We have two dogs and therefore paid 4. 00 per night more than our neighbours. Our neighbours on the first night were a couple of young lads in a mini-bus. They arrived on the next pitch, removed some of the seats, inflated two airbeds, lit a bbq, and drank beer, cider, wine etc outside for most of the evening. Their language was disgusting. They kept running the van engine for periods of time to use the lights inside the van as they had no electrics. They made very loud calls on their mobile phones. We were very surprised that they had been allowed on site in a minibus (not a motorhome). We did mention this to reception the next morning and they were very apologetic.

Dogs are not allowed in the on site bar but generally dogs should not be left in your unit, therefore dog owners (who have paid more in site fees than other people) cannot use the bar. If you take children under four they go for free and can use the toilets, showers, etc. Personally I think that dogs cause less work and trouble than children on a site. We always pick up after our dogs and they generally don't bother anyone else. We do not dislike children (we have some of our own - now grown up). Children use all the facilities, dogs don't. Why are kids free and dogs 2. 00?

I really like this site but think that because of the charges for dogs it may get too expensive for us to return.

This really is an absolutely lovely site which we would love to return to again and again. Please drop the charges for dogs and we will definitely return. 15 per night is really good value for money, 19 per night (inc. Dogs) is OTT.

Just returned from a lovely weekend at this site. Booked last minute and was very helpful. Was packed and hook up ready to go so arrived in an hour after booking. Very fast and easy check in. We liked want we saw as we pulled in the drive. Has its own pub and shop. Warden pointed out where everything was and took us to our pitch. Firstly noted was the amazing views over rolling countryside.

Now after setting up there was a problem with the power. I thought it was just my unit so checked box, but it was our neighbours too. Then it appeared that it was the whole section. Once told of the fact the Wardens started work on sorting the problem. It turned out to be a large problem so they set about reconnecting units to supply posts nearby where they could, but they started rewiring things to get every unit back online. We managed to get power after 10 mins or so. However they worked relentlessly to get everyone back online in the darkness and within an hour or so had everyone back with power. I was impressed with the work they put into this as I was near the main supply box I could see just how hard they worked and ran around to get this sorted. (Beleive me when I say ran around I actually mean ran around too)

The facilities are really clean and upto date. You must try the pub also its really cosy and its nice to be able to have a proper drink. Nice converted barn so its got a nice feeling too.

Close to Bakewell, Buxton Matlock & Chatsworth all within 1/2 hours drive max. Although no pets or kids with us. It looked like there was plenty of walks for dogs and what looked like good play area. Seemed like the kids liked the site and cycling and playing seemed to be aloud despite this there seemed to be plenty of peace and quite we never had any issues or had any noise so seems like the site is able to cater for all guests

Will be back.
