 Great site, near the town of castleton one way and Hope the other.

Easy walking both for the pubs and restaurants.

Good walking country.

The site itself is the usual C&M club standard.

The wardens were very good.

 A spotlessly clean and well-maintained site, easy to access with lovely views and ideally placed for exploring the Peak District.

Dog owners will find the on site dog walk area a bit of a joke because it's a very short path that winds amongst a handful of trees, so for a proper walk you have to go offsite.

You can walk into the village in just a few minutes and you won't be short of places to eat out, for a small village castleton has a great many pubs and restaurants!

We are never disappointed in CAMC sites and this is no exception.

However we will be switching to CL's in future because if you're not bothered about having lots of facilities, they do offer better value for money in these expensive times.

 Castleton site is one of my favourites. Iíve been visiting the village since I was a small child and I love to return.

We only booked for one night as we were on our way to somewhere else. It was a Sunday and we were lucky to get in as this site is incredibly popular.

We were greeted by the extremely helpful Steve and Tom. Two extremely nice new wardens who had only been there 2 days.

The site was immaculate as usual. Itís impossible to find fault with this site. It exemplifies the CAMC brand.

 Great site, excellent facilities, friendly wardens

So convenient for the castleton village with its lovely pubs and places to eat.

Great for walking, Mam Tor is only a short distance away with stunning views.

Super location for exploring the local area with all its attractions.

 Check-in was easy and the warden very friendly. Filled up at the motorhome point and off to find a pitch. Fairly level pitch only needing one ramp.

Site is very clean and well organised. I can only speak for the accessible shower/toilet room but this was spotless and warm.

Shortcut through the dog walk area was useful and then only a short walk to castleton.

The road is busy and at least there are good pavements along the route.

Site is certainly peaceful and we will go again.

Reviewer: Catarinabod 62 reviews from this member

 First time solo travelling (with dog) for 1 night.

Friendly check-in and chose pitch 29 as it was at the back of the site and had grass either side - not amongst all the large caravan/awning setups.

Usual good C&MC facilities.

Small enclosed dog walk area and path through to main road.

Great position just before castleton centre coming from Chesterfield.

Excellent for access to Lose Hill/Hollins Cross/Mam Tor walk.

Also highly recommend Cave Dale walk from village centre.

Disappointed chip shop only open at lunch time! If you like walking, this is an excellent location. Several pubs in castleton.

 We are new members to caravan and motorhome club and we were very impressed with the excellent facilities on the site and lovely scenery.

The site was very clean and tidy and very well managed considering the covid restrictions.

 We only live a short drive away from this site so we visit every year but we last left a review in 2013 so an update is required.

Approach is easy for us via Hope (site immediately off the main road) but do not attempt to tow down Winnetts Pass if you are arriving from the Buxton area. Departures are by 12pm with no arrivals before 1pm due to limited arrivals area meaning there would be queuing on the main road. Friendly wardens who are new to castleton this month.

The toilet block has been refurbished in recent years and the facilities are now much better and more worthy of CMC status. We visited on the second weekend after the site reopened following the COVID-19 lockdown.

On arrival we were issued with 2 wristbands and the system for using the toilet block was explained - outside each male and female there were 3 hooks onto which you hung your wristband and entered. If there were already 3 there, you needed to wait until someone came out and removed their band.

In theory this is a good arrangement to maintain social distancing but a lady beat me to it one day with her 2 children and they were all going for a shower so I had to cross my legs for quite some time before they exited!

I do think that perhaps they could allow more in the block if some are going to shower but realise this would be hard to monitor - no perfect solution. Only 3 toilets, 3 showers and one privacy cubicle were open in the ladies with similar restrictions in the male side according to Mr Chappies. Some facilities still closed such as the drying room and games room but can understand why at the moment.

Over the years we have been visiting this lovely site we have noticed that more and more pitches are now allocated for non-awning (roughly half and half now); a sign of its popularity amongst the motorhoming community, we suspect, which is understandable as the walks in the area are spectacular and we never use our car when staying here, especially since we added a dog to our family.

Castleton has always been one of our favourite sites and continues to be so but, be warned, weekends book up very early so advance planning is required.

 We stayed here for 2 nights. I was concerned when we arrived as I realised Iíd forgotten my levelling blocks. But our pitch was very level and didnít require any. Facilities were spotless as usual for a club site. Recycling is encouraged with separate bins which I think is excellent. Lovely little touches like a help yourself herb garden.

Wardens were extremely helpful especially Carol who was lovely.

The town is a short level walk from the site.

My only reservation was public transport was very limited. We prefer to leave the motorhome on site and use public transport. The only available bus was to Sheffield.

I recommend the ďDevils ArseĒ caves. Our guide was an experienced caver and was a mine of information. Excuse the pun. There are a wide range of gift shops and tea shops in the town. We found the Blue John stone very expensive.

The town is very pretty and Iíd say definitely worth a visit. But for us we probably wouldnít return as we feel we experienced everything we wanted to and as true motorhomers decided to move on to Chatsworth.

Reviewer: Maz9999 31 reviews from this member

 Nice clean site 15 minutes walk to the village, little dog walk area but donít arrive before 12 or you will queue on the busy road as they are very strict with times even when thereís loads of space. We parked up on a very uneven pitch so even with chocks we were sloping, and our pitch was one of the better ones

Finally got as level as we could only to have a knock on the door saying we were 2 feet to the left of where we should be, booked a pitch with an awning even though we donít have one or a car but ridiculously we were asked to move over 2 feet ?

Perhaps spend more time levelling the pitches before worrying about a few feet of empty space
