 I received a friendly welcome when I arrived - you have to walk 5 mins from the camp site to Hillsdale Farm, which is on the left of the last farmyard you get to.

This campsite is very well situated for the many walks in the area including the Manifold Valley. 2 footpaths start approx 100m from the site entrance - the one down the road is through a clearly marked gate, and the one up the road goes through a farm; lookout for arrows on the outbuilding walls.

It's a sloping site with some flat areas - the ground at bottom of the site was flat but a bit soft and squidgy.

There are 2 basic clean toilet cubicles with normal flushing toilets and a sink; toilet paper and soap are provided.

A large rubbish bin is by the toilets.

Drinking water is from a tap by the entrance to the site - the water is delicious!

There are old washing machine drums available around the site if you want to make a fire.

Very good value for money at £6 per night.

 Lovely site with basic facilities. Friendly farmer owners.

Really good views from the tent and range of great walks from the site.

Children loved the donkeys in next field

 Responded to booking enquiry quickly.

Owners friendly and helpful from the start.

Lovely field, plenty of space with picnic bench and swing. Fabulous view.

Exactly what we wanted as a base for walking in the Manifold Valley.

 Lovely people and campsite, even thought it was super wet the campsite was lovely.

Was on a bit of a slope but still found a place that was flattish.

 Breathtaking views from the main camping field and nestled right in the heart of the Peak District.

All facilities needed are provided and friendly working farm.

Facilities are a bit rustic and standard will not be up to everyones taste.

However, such good value and idyllic location far outweighs this.

Heartily recommend a stay here.

 Excellently situated site with great views and friendly owners. We stayed in tents for 3 nights at the beginning of April.

Contacted the owners a couple of months before the trip and they were really quick to respond and extremely helpful. Field was very muddy but as long as you prepare (and have a 4x4 or can park on the gravel path that bisects the field) youíll be fine.

There were 2 toilets on the field, a shower available further down the lane near the farm, fresh eggs and firewood were also available if you needed them.

They provide fire pits too (which you could put a grill grate over the top of to cook with).

The field we stayed on was next to the donkey paddock with 4 very friendly residents, which made the trip even better, despite their shouting going off in the early morning.

We wanted to visit Thorís cave and this site was really close to the village of Grindon which made it easy. Also not too far from Leek and other villages if you want to visit.

Will definitely be visiting again, if just to see the donkeys.

 Amazing campsite! Clean facilities, run by lovely people who are there to help if you need them.

Really good for a stay, and local to Alton towers and many more walking routes.

Stayed here to visit Luds Church the next day.

Brought the dog, and they had fires available free to use, were off ground and really easy!

Amazing time!

 Great setting - picturesque, a working farm with lots of animals and great walks from the site.

Gill was friendly and helpful. Fire pits and firewood on site were a bonus.

The facilities were basic but everything you need and kept clean - thereís a freezer for ice blocks, indoor washing up, and a hot shower. Itís a fair walk downhill to the main facilities - fine for us but could be an issue for anyone with mobility issues.

Overall great value for money.

 The location and scenery is beautiful with a only a short walk away from the nearest town.

The facilities are amazing, although the walk to the farm can be awkward sometimes.

The heads of the site are incredibly friendly and very helpful.

Me and my partner were incredibly satisfied with our stay and the value for money is amazing.

I couldn't think of a fault during our stay.
