Everything about this site is fabulous. There are lots of walks straight from the site. The facilities are first class. The staff very friendly. It was very quiet at night apart from the sheep in the next field (which we loved). Train station about 1. 5 miles walk. Love it and will definitely returning.

An excellent if compact little site up to the usual CC standards in the heart of the Peak District. The beautiful village of Castleton is a 5 minute walk away and has 6 pubs and a very decent Italian restaurant.

Obviously this is prime hiking country and there are plenty of trails to explore from the village.

The only issue to watch out for is traffic around the Manchester area if you're trying to connect with the M6. The Snake Pass route from the site to Glossop is stunning, but Glossop itself is traffic jam central even at off peak times. Next time I'll head south towards Macclesfield for M6 access

Reviewer: Alan-c1 8 reviews from this member

We visited this site several weeks ago and were very impressed, but 1st my only pet hate of many sites. As is usual with most club sites the shower/toilet block closes for cleaning between 10. 30-11. 30 each morning. This is usually when I want to use it. Of course those units leaving to return home may need to spend a penny at exactly this point before journeys home. As there are 4 wardens (2 couples) this strikes me as unnecessary, as the men could clean the gents and of course conversely the ladies. Neither scenario need entail closing the entire block, as they could be cleaned and used simultaneously. As many private sites do this I see no reason to inconvenience campers without good reason.

That’s it for the criticism though! The site is perhaps a 15 minute walk into the beautiful village, where there are several lovely country pubs, a village store and 1 restaurant. It is of course the perfect location for walkers too, as well as those wanting to tour the area seeing its many lovely towns and villages. Nothing much here for kids though, this area is mostly suitable for adults. The site itself is beautifully kept and spotlessly clean, with all of the wardens being very friendly and helpful. There was certainly none of the ‘regimented’ inspections referred to in previous years. To sum up then an excellent site, which is deservedly very popular.

This is a very busy site and generally fully booked. Knowing that I booked this when this year's booking opened. After four days stay I wondered why it was so popular. The site itself, while up to the usual Club standards, is pretty featureless. The nearby village of Castleton has few shops but many restaurants and pubs. Clearly a tourist destination. What the area excels I is the walking and this must be the main reason for the popularity. Having said that some of our fellow campers only walk was to the toilets. There are many caverns to visit, some where blue stone is still mined. The road out Westward was closed so there was only one way out so it was not a great centre for touring however this may be temporary. I do not want to give a negative impression as we enjoyed our stay. The restaurant at the Cheshire Cheese Inn is worth a visit.

This is a lovely site just outside the village of Castleton. The site slopes slightly so blocks and chocks are required, all pitches are hardstanding (good for winter caravanning), some pitches are smaller than others and unsuitable for awnings. Facilities are up to the usual CMC standard, always clean and well stocked.

At the time of our visit, we could not get an awning pitch, so had to make do with one of the smaller pitches, that said there was ample room for the caravan and car.

The area adjacent to the site is full of caverns if that's your thing, while on top of the hill overlooking the village is Peveril Castle (English Heritage, and unfortunately closed during our stay) from which the village takes its name. Being in the Peak District, there is walking aplenty in the local area too. For the stately home lovers, Chatsworth House is not too far away, the house and gardens are open to the public daily.

The village has an abundance of pubs, the closest (and we found friendliest) being the Cheshire Cheese, good grub and a good pint, what more could anyone want.

I have just returned from a three night stay, on this site, meeting up with friends to enjoy a pre-Christmas social gathering. My first impression (bearing in mind the time of year) was how festive it looked. The decorations around the site office were beautiful! Others, on site, had also decorated their units, making it feel very Christmasy. The half mile walk, into Castleton is worth the effort for the pubs and places offering coffee. We enjoyed two evening meals and one morning coffee - all in different hostelries, and we certainly weren't disappointed in any of them. As walkers, we took advantage of the rights of way, direct from the village, without having to turn a wheel. We also walked the two mile distance, to Hope train station (footpath all the way )and travelled into Manchester (or Sheffield, if you wish, in the opposite direction). Wheelchair users will manage fine with the hardstanding pitches as they are compacted, rather than the dreaded gravel - thumbs up for that one! I only have one little grumble, regarding the facilities - the pressure in the showers was dismal! I had to hop from one cubicle, to the other, wrapped in only a towel, in the hope of getting more pressure. Unfortunately, no. I do believe though, there is to be a facilities re-vamp, early next year. Summing up, my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our gathering here and I will definitely be back, bringing my son the next time, this being the type of countryside he enjoys for walking/climbing.

We spent 3 nights on this site. As a regular user of CC sites, I found Castleton to be well up to all the standards that we have come to expect from Club sites. All pitches on site are hard standing and most offer excellent views.

There is a bus stop within 50 yards of the site gates with regular services into Castleton, Bakewell, Hope, Hathersage and eventually Sheffield. Castleton is less than a half mile walk and is a centre for a whole range of activities including rock climbing, potholing and walking, It offers pubs, cafes and tea room. We can heartily recommend Tilly's, which although it calls itself a 'tea room', offers a selection of very tasty hot and cold meals.

We will be going back to this site

A very nice site with excellent facilities and very friendly staff. A lovely steady walk into castleton with many pubs and shops. The entry to the site looked beautiful with an abundance of flowers it looked very pretty. The grudge I have is the doggy walk. It is so damp and dismal the tall trees make it so dark and damp under foot, no sunshine can get through to dry the ground. I understand not everyons has dogs but that is my only gripe

Nicely laid out with large pitches. However, this regimented site was just not for us. In a great location to walk up Mam Tor, and Castleton was a quaint little village with about four pubs but no convenience store for essentials. This is found in Hope, in the opposite direction. We are not noisy people, keep ourselves to ourselves and abide by all rulings but I was frightened to even breathe on this site in case I got 'told off' and I felt uncomfortable with the 'patrols' around the site at regular intervals throughout the day. Quite a few of the other campers had also had this experience, so I for one, will not be returning until they relax their attitude towards minor things and address more important issues like noisy drunken campers at 1am in the morning! I left early I was that disappointed.

Enjoyed our stay at the site, quite relaxing and peaceful with just a short walk to the village. Wardens were friendly and helpful. Shower block was clean and the site was well maintained.

The dog area was quite muddy in an area of trees so you were quite restricted as it was a small space. This would not put me off from visiting again, overall a site worth visiting.
