 No frills/basic camping for £7pn and perfect for a couple of days.

No showers. Couple of portable toilets one end and a work site toilet (2male, 1 female) the other. Can imagine this would be a pain if it was really busy but ok this time. Kept as clean as possible for what it is. Running water/ washing up sink and drinking water tap which is handy.

Lovely fields to camp, beautiful setting, reasonably flat and next to the river. Accept pretty much any vehicle/ camp style. Tents, car camping, campervans, motor homes. No electric hook up though!

Dogs accepted at no extra cost

Family friendly, although I did get annoyed with kids playing around my car/awning, so be warned if you are trying to have a peaceful time and you visit in holidays time.

It can get very busy at weekend with people walking to area/thors cave. Some lovely walks in the area but if you want peace and quiet, go mid week/non school holidays.

Wetton Mill cafe has lovely food and drinks, and the sausage cob (served weekends/bank holidays, served from 9:15) was lovely!

As a solo camper, I felt very safe here and although a little busy due to the weekend/time of year, I'd like to return when less busy. Definitely on my keeper list.

 Peaceful and relaxed site.

Large, sheltered field, pitch where you want. Be warned no signal at all. Suited us.

Bike ride 5 Mile on the manifold way, with a walk up to thor's Cave.

Great one nighter. Free range friendless chickens. Roads to site very narrow.

Facilities clean and as promised. Suited our needs for the night.

 Gorgeous site, very basic, (but I like it that way) friendly, helpful hosts, bags of space; - really - there are 2 HUGE fields mostly pretty level and flat and another smaller field. The grass is cut to decent level.

Loads of good walking and cycling straight from the site - Thors Cave is within 20(?) mins walk (but watch for queues in busy periods).

There's a refreshment shop by site entrance - very rewarding after a day out (closes around 5). The Manifold Valley railway walk is beautiful and undemanding going north and south.

The only downside in busy periods are the loos - a small, re-cycled workman's loo block with 1 ladies' and 2 men's loos (and basins with cold water), and 2 portaloos at the far end of the first main field. They're kept very clean - daily, thorough cleaning but you're advised to bring your own for bank holidays and busy times. There's also 1 outdoor washing-up sink (cold water) by the main loos.

You can paddle and splash in the river and there's a rope swing but no other child friendly activities. But plenty of space for cricket, football etc. The site was very quiet after 10 as requested on notices from the hosts. All this for £7pp. Pn (2023). I loved it!

 Basic site, but everything we needed for a lovely night stay. Really quite place to camp. Large open space for the children to play - close to a river - but just some safe access points.

Friendly hosts - able to cancel up until arrival which was perfect for us.

Toilets - small but clean. No shower but I was made aware of this prior to booking.

Would stay again :)

Stunning location with miles and miles to explore on the door step - no need to use the car!

Site facilities - only scored 7/10 purely because they are limited.

 Beautiful Campsite! Nice owner.

I camped next to the river and I found it very tranquil but others may not like the constant sounds of river. Lucky for them lots of space here to enjoy the scenery and the peace and quiet.

There is no phone signal here so no phones and no Internet. Ideal for a digital detox. My DAB radio also got no signal and the FM radio was a bit dodgy. So a pleasantly peaceful time.

The site doesn't have any showers. There are toilets and a tap so what more do you really need?

Locally there are a wealth of stunning walks. Thors cave is a must! For supplies Hartington has what you need. If you fancy a stroll to the pub it's a bit of a hike so take a torch but there are two Locally if you want. Toss a coin and decide left or right at the bridge. Personally I didn't visit either but I'm sure they are worth the effort. Literally next door is the mill with a cafe. I did note that they were selling sausage and bacon cobs for breakfast at the weekend when I visited.

If you want a quiet getaway and appreciate no frills camping or have your own personalised little luxuries this is definitely worth visiting. I shall visit again.

Reviewer: Kelibr 1 review from this member

 The campsite is in a lovely setting right by a shallow river, national trust cafe and has clean toilets. Cold water only, which was fine with us. But the noise from other camperís ruined it for us, I have a 5 and 3 year old.

We were kept up both nights by other people playing music and shouting till gone 1am.

There were notices on facilities that there was a 10pm loud noise curfew but this was ignored and no one came to tell them to quieten down.

I wouldnít camp here again only because of other campers and lack of rules that ruined our stay.

Owners are lovely. So friendly.

 Great for a weekend camping trip but due to no washing facilities itís not suitable for longer than a weekend.

Great location with no signal (which is good at times).
