 If you have not stayed here before, you need to. Itís a fantastic site with first class facilities, very clean toilets and showers, well stocked on-site shop, great little cafe served us a lovely breakfast too.

Electric hook-up was great and card metered. It isnít expensive and for us worked out to be about £1 per day.

On site WiFi was good and fairly stable and free! Refuse and drinking water points are plentiful and you can also hire a fire pit from the shop.

ALL of the staff we came across were lovely and very helpful. This is one site that will be on our list for re-visiting. Although we donít have kids,

The whole site is child friendly with a couple of play safe areas. Dudley; our Shih-tzu,

Loved being on the site and the dog exercise area is fabulous.

Thank you to all for a great stay.

 We stayed at BCF for 2 nights and decided to pitch up near the older children's play area as our children are 6 and 10.

Whilst the play area is excellent the walk to the toilets/ showers/ pot washing area is down a slope with a very steep path. I saw a number of people struggling with the incline.

The facilities will be mainly used by campers as caravans already have their own yet the campsite has placed them on the same level as the caravans. More facilities are required further up the tent fields.

Another point I'd like to make is that the staff in the shop advised us that we could get onto monsal trail on our bikes from the campsite. She mentioned there was "a bit of a steep bit". This was extremely steep and would have been impossible for my children to push their bikes back up to the top.

I ended up pushing my bike back up leaving my husband and 2 children. I returned to the campsite and drove to the trail car park where I met them. I feel this was extreamly poor advice as the staff could see my children were young.

The site facilities were clean but there are a lot of rules which I felt were over the top.

There's a cafe which serves nice food but is over priced and not the best quality.

Otherwise a lovely weekend:0)

 Loved the camp site very clean and friendly people who run it.

Lovely area up the road from many places. They are in the process off building a small cafe takeaway

We shall definitely return.

A very steep slope to the facilities but their is a longer route if you struggle

 Arrived on a very rainy Monday about 1300 hrs parked up and booked in at reception. Got our electric hookup card and was told to pitch up were ever we wanted to on the top field. Great views of the surrounding hills from up there. Some pitches are not fully level but it is the peak district.

Once set up and kettle on the rain stopped. Took the dog to the dog exercise area. She was very interested in the sheep and goats in the paddock next door to the path to the area.

The toilet block was immaculate and the free showers were very clean and hot. Plenty of recycling available on site the whole place is very tidy the owners certainly look after the place.

The only downside to the place we found was that some dog owners not cleaning up after their pets in the dog area. Not the owners fault but a little annoying plenty of signs about doing it.

We tried 2 of the walks close to the site 1st to the monsal trail enjoyed meeting dave the dog at the cycle hire and tuck shop don't feed him so the sign says.

The second trip we made was to the church pub at chelmorton the information leaflet you get when you book in says a 30 min walk from the site maybe if your in your 20s at 57 unfit and with a dog that wants to sniff every blade of grass took just over an hour but very pleasant walk all the same.

This is a little gem of a site well run quiet peaceful a very relaxing place to be we have already decided to return later in the year 10 out of ten. If you want lots of entertainment and to make lots of noise then this is not the place for you.

This is the only site that I've seen the pre payment meters £5 deposit for the card and whatever amount you wish to put on it we put £5 on it over 4 days we used very little and after our stay we took the card back to reception and were refunded our £5 deposit and refunded £3.50 unused electric a great way of doing it.

The day before coming home we ran out of gas but they didn't have any 4.5kg bottles on site there is apparently a national shortage of this type. Not the sites fault they were very helpful and pointed us to peak leisure in buxton only 5 miles down the road. They said the same thing. So we ended up buying a camping stove with 4 gas cannisters for £24 pounds. Rather than returning home early.

Currently under construction next to reception will be a takeaway we hope to make use of this next time we go.

There is also a morrisons store 4. 5 miles down the road from the site for those who need to top up on shopping.

 We came here 10 years ago and thought we would make another visit after camping around other parts of England and Wales.

It is an excellent site with immaculately clean washing facilities. The reception and shop are a recent, major upgrade from last time. A small cafe /takeaway was being built during this visit.

It is well sited for visits to towns, historic buildings etc. However, we mainly kept to nearby walks and the website links to an excellent range of them; Monsal Trail, Pennine Bridleway etc etc. There are play areas and a dog walk area.

By far the best feature is the camping electric hookup where you only pay for the electricity you use and are refunded if there is a balance on the card.

 Beech Croft Farm is a super site which is only 45 minutes away from our home. The approach is easy with just the very last part being a narrow road but visibility is good with grass verges of both sides should passing be required.

The caravan pitches are level hardstandings with EHU, water taps and aerial points and the toilet block is extremely clean with good covid measures in place. Due to government restrictions the showers weren't open but all other facilities were available including a camp kitchen with microwave and coffee machine, launderette and pot washing area.

The site has its own well-stocked shop with a good range of food and camping products and the staff are very friendly and professional. There is an excellent fully enclosed dog walking field where you can safely allow your dog some off the lead time - this would be fantastic for puppy recall training. There is a nice children's play area too.

There are some fabulous walks directly from the site with the Monsal Trail just 0. 75 miles from the site but, be warned, it is a steep walk down (and obviously back up again)but it is well worth it.

Hope and castleton are about 20-25 minutes drive away with fabulous walks up Mam Tor and Losehill. The villages of Tideswell and Bradwell are nearby with good fish and chip shops and a well=stocked Co-op. Although we didn't try it, there is also a Chinese takeaway in Buxton who will deliver to the site.

We thoroughly enjoyed our May Day weekend stay at Beech Croft and are sure we return again very soon.

 A lovely site. Facilities were modern and very clean. Peaceful atmosphere with lots of long walks near site.

Staff were friendly and always helpful. Really well maintained campsite, where a lot of thought has been put into the campers needs and experience.

Having camped all over world, I'd rate this as one of the best campsites that I have stayed at.
