Really enjoyed our stay, wonderful scenery. Hook-up, showers and toilets etc. All very satisfactory

Owners very helpful when booking and during our stay. Shops and eating places nearby.

Lovely campsite, nice surrounding

Great location site with beautiful views. Facilities are basic but functional. 20p for shower and 2 toilets. Located by the river and a great rope swing for the kids. Ducks walking about the site. Fresh water. Very helpful owner who lives on site. Glad to have found this little gem. We will be back.

Do not be tempted if any rain. This site was completely submerged. All vans got stuck and caravan was nearly totalled trying to get towed off the grass. The site itself is well situated and good walks straight from the van.

Great views and lovely walks by the river. We stayed for the August Bank holiday so the site was quite full. The caravans are placed quite close together but it was okay for a few nights. Site is slightly sloping so chocks are needed.

The toilets are fine but didn't fancy having a shower with just a couple of curtains between me and the toilet users!

We paid 19 per night with an EHU so not too bad for a Bank holiday. Loved the walks and the views but showers could definitely do with an upgrade.

Just to be aware the site is open to walkers/joggers etc so lots of foot traffic through the site so not secure also no signs from the road indicating where the site is so very easy to miss.

Nice site with wonderful views. Also has friendly ducks and cows. Plenty of walking tracks. The shower block is basic and 20p coin operated. Great guy runs the site and makes the effort to say hi and let you know what's about nearby. Plenty of space for our young kids to run about and can see them just about anywhere they're playing. We repaired a tree swing there which all the kids on the site had fun playing on. There's also a nice little stream that runs through it and a small walk down to the road to spar shop and fuel garage. About 25mins drive to Castleton witch is spot on. Overall I would say although the showers are basic its a brilliant little gem. Will deffo go there again on our next walking trip.

This is a beautiful little site with an impressive view. The facilities are basic but everything works and we really appreciated the lovely short grass, especially when it rained. On our first day, the owner kindly gave us printed directions for a walk from the campsite, but it is easy to reach many other walks by car. Crows and cows woke us up early but this the countryside! (And earplugs are probably a good idea when camping)

For me the only downside was that there was nowhere to freeze ice packs and it's hard to store butter etc in a tent on hot days. But for a short stay, camping in a tent doesn't get much better than this.

Bit expensive for what it is. 20 for two nights in a backpacking tent? Nice dude runs it though. Toilet block very basic for the money, 2 toilets and 2 mini sinks to wash in which meant more water went on the floor than in it. Showers a bit grim but usable. That saying liked the area its set in and the local pub so will return.

A quiet basic site, with stunning views. Great walks from the campsite. Richard the owner was very friendly and made everybody welcome. The no frills toilet block was kept clean and tidy and of course lots of hot water. Shower was 20p. Will most certainly go again.

The view of Froggat edge from this campsite is amazing & we would have stayed just for that! The owner, Olive is 92 and she still makes regular appearances although her son Richard now manages the site for her. The site is situated down a well surfaced but narrow lane which is well-lit at night. It only takes 10-15 minutes to walk into Calver where there are two pubs & a Spar Shop. Another pub, the Bridge Inn - which only does Tapas - is at the entrance to the lane to the farm. The pitching area is bowl shaped with slightly sloping sides so chocks are helpful. The grass was nice and short & there was room for children to play in the centre. There are a number of static vans here and the owners who were visiting were very friendly & a mine of useful information. Richard was also very helpful & knowledgeable, especially about the hiking options nearby.

The toilet block is basic but clean. Richard has uploaded very fair photos on this site which show them as they are. The shower cubicle in each has a shower curtain, then another curtain pulls across the area outside to afford privacy while undressing/dressing. The shower costs 20p for 6 minutes so take some 20ps with you.

Charcoal barbecues are allowed.

Drinking water is piped to a tap via a spring that the family has used for over 80 years (and it hasn't done Olive any harm!) We were charged 15 a night for our camper van which was a fair price.

We really enjoyed staying at this quirky friendly site and will be back.

This site has quite basic facilities, but a stunning location. The views from the site mean that you don't want to wander far, but there are a couple of pubs and shops at walking distance. The owner was very friendly and helpful.
