Booked this site at very short notice and the lady who answered the phone was lovely going to a lot of trouble to ensure we didn't have to move pitch over a busy bank holiday weekend. We had a fully serviced hard standing pitch adjacent to the camping area which was flat and provided ample space for our 7 metre van and awning although rock pegs are needed.

As the site was full the showers/toilets were very busy at peak times and waits were experienced, however, the water was always hot and the blocks adequately clean. As an improvement thought maybe a secondary block would be a good idea. The disabled washroom was easily accessible and provided for all needs, the only down side being there did not appear to be any heating in the shower blocks which maybe an issue in winter and certainly was felt on a cold May evening.

The site is very well kept with a lovely river running through it, quiet and with friendly staff who go out of their way to help. The location is a five minute walk form the village and ten minute drive from Castleton. We would certainly go back again to enjoy this site.

Returned to the site after a 3-4 year absence and were not disappointed. Had the best pitch we ever had and were pleased to see the addition of flowers/planters. Staff really friendly and helpful. Only one little gripe. Hot water, there was plenty of it until about 7. 30 am but after that the showers/washing up water was barely tepid. The same happened about 6pm. I appreciate that the site was full so lots of water was being used but I feel there should be a constant supply of hot water on a campsite. Despite that though this is still one of my favourite sites and I will certainly be visiting it again soon.

We've visited this site before and will go back again. It is very handy for some lovely villages, good walks, and a good public transport system, with a station and bus stops very close. The toilets and showers were clean and well maintained. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. The downsides are that it is next to a main road, so can be noisy, but we soon got used to that. Our main issue were our pitches. We travelled in a group, and on glorious hot sunny days, all of our pitches were in deep shade from early afternoon due to some very high trees. So no sitting out in the evening for a leisurely BBQ - it was so cold we had to retreat inside the tents. We also had the dog poo walk next to our pitches, which although not a real problem, wasn't very nice, especially as non of us had dogs. Other than the pitches, we had a good time, and will return, but will ask for different pitches in the sun if possible ;-)

The Campsite is in a good location near to Hope and Castleton. The wardens are very pleasant and the toilet facilities very clean. However, our plot was almost always in the shade due to some high trees, and we were next to the dog poo walk which, although wasn't an issue as it happens, I think we should have been told about when booking. There are obviously people who keep their vans on the site and they seemed over fussy about the uptake of their plots which didn't make for a relaxed atmosphere. Especially for first time caravanners like my other half who turned up with the caravan to find that a regular had parked in our plot while he was strimming round his!Artificial grass and plant pots abounding on other regulars plots which seemed a tad over the top and a bit intimidating when you are just turning up for a relaxing weekend. Probably better for tourers to be separate from these and I would definitely prefer to be on the bottom camping field where there are table tennis tables and the river handy for the kids to paddle in.

We booked the site for 8 nights in sept, partly due to the fact that it had some self catering cottages attached that our friends could use.

Our other reason was the location, which I have to say did not disappoint, lots of great scenic walks close by and in short driving distance. Also good amenities within close distance, shops, pubs and transport links etc.

The site itself, for us was a little disappointing, due to the fact that it felt like the touring units were a little cramped in together with little personal space available also the grass looked like it needed cutting, but I suppose with them being so busy all the time they don, t get to many chances to do it !

Part of the site has static caravans on it plus there is also lots of seasonal pitched caravans, which seem to be in better looked after surroundings. We found all the reception staff friendly but have to say it, s not a site we would re-visit.

Amazing site in the heart of the Peak district, staff very friendly and helpful, very clean site with excellent facilities and within walking distance of hope village, the old hall pub does really nice food and well worth a visit!

Not a lot for small children to do but good if you want a quiet weekend away!

This was our 5th year going back to Laneside and we will keep going back. The site and all its facilities are very well maintained, clean, and tidy, with a small shop on site and lots of local information leaflets, a laundry and baby change facilities. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pitches are all plenty big enough, grass and hardstanding, the grass is kept short, some with ehu and some without, depending what you want. Dogs are welcome, there is a little dog walk area. The location is perfect, a 2 minute walk into Hope, with a couple of great pubs, cafes and shops, a little longer walk, about half hour or 5 min bus journey and you are in Castleton, where there are more very good pubs, serving food, cafes and little shops, as well as the blue John mines. There are some stunning walks and the most beautiful scenery and countryside, walking on the flat or uphill. A walk up Loose hill and along the ridge to Mam Tor is definitely worth doing.

Many years since we last visited this site and it is much improved. The booking in on arrival was quick and the wardens were very friendly and having chosen our site when booking on line, we were given a map and directions to our pitch.

We chose a hardstanding pitch with all the bells and whistles. Grey block paving for unit, gravel for awning and a block paving area for sitting out on. Choosing our own plot meant we were well away from traffic noise. Behind us was a grassed area for tents and beyond a small stream.

The location is ideal for a short walk into Hope and longer walk to Castleton. There is a bus stop right outside the camp entrance too.

Our main gripe was the design in the shower cubicles. Although there was plenty of hot water it ran through the changing area before draining away.

I would recommend this site to enjoy all that this beautiful part of the Peak District has to offer. Most of the pubs welcome muddy boots and dogs.

As usual a lovely site, well kept helpful staff. For the first time we opted for hard standing a mistake we bent more pegs than we put in. We gave booked again but are going back to grass. Otherwise no negatives at all. G

We spend the May bank holiday here and it is a nice site, it was just let down by the toilet facilities in my opinion. They always seemed clean and there was a mop for the showers, maybe it just was the colour scheme. If they were modernised, this would be a first rate site.

The wardens were always friendly and the site was quiet even although it was full.

The location of the site is very good for the town / pubs. The Traveller's Rest is worth a visit if you don't mind walking in the dark. (There is a good pavement all the way).

Good walking area.

I would like to return to the site, probably once it has been improved.
