 Beautiful cared for site. Owners welcoming & helpful. Large flat pitches (on EHU) field. Wash rooms & pot wash very clean.

Like the barrier entry/exit to site. Loved the Eco friendly aspect, more need to follow suit if only recycling waste.

Great choice of walks from site & within local area. Lots to see and do in small radius of site.

Would definitely re visit.

 This eco-friendly campsite ticked all the boxes for us. On arrival we immediately realised we had made the right decision.

From the welcome on arrival, to finding our perfectly level pitch with hook-up, the small but spotlessly clean facilities, and the friendliness of the other campers, we all felt totally relaxed and so glad we had chosen this site over many of the nearby alternatives.

Well situated for Buxton and Bakewell, easy access to many of the surrounding dales for walks, and plenty of opportunities for cycling (thought its hilly).

With a security barrier at the entry to the site and low numbers of pitches, we felt totally safe and relaxed throughout our stay.

No on-site shop but that's something you can easily plan for.

One for the list of sites to return to!

 Large camping pitches, clean and tidy, beautiful location.

On arrival, the greeting was quite brusque and it felt a little like we were intruding. When we booked we hadn’t been asked what vehicle we had and were charged a certain price - when he paid the balance on arrival we were sternly told that we would need to pay an extra £4 per night as we had a transit van (and tent). When we queried this, we were told that the van would ‘rip up the campsite’. We were then given an alternative pitch in the camper van field and the extra charge was waived after queuing this.

We were hoping to fish over the week-end but was unable to access the fishing lake over the ladder-style style due to my health needs - this was not identified on the website or we would have looked elsewhere.

Toilet block was a little ‘tired’, although clean but we feel not really ‘gold standard’ as advertised.

Lovely book shop and cafe down the road (High Peak Book Store) - well worth a visit.

 This is a lovely peaceful place to stay. The owners were welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed beautiful walks from the site.

The site is very clean and COVID precautions are in place. We plan to visit again.

 Ed and Marylin great hosts. Facilities are brilliant and spotlessly clean (showers, Loos, washup, laundry, recycling). Lots of space between pitches, lovely flat field easy to pitch.

Great location for walks we did circular one visiting Chelmorton, Taddington, Miller dale- great pub for lunch, then back along river through Deep dale. 10 mins drive to Buxton or 15 to Bakewell.

Site was managed so well for Covid considerations - facilities one way system only 4 in at one time but there was never more than 2 during our stay, regular sanitising and cleaning.

Very efficient, friendly, charming site, highly recommend will definitely visit again next year x

Reviewer: Amanda 1 review from this member

 Family comprising two couples and a young child. Stayed for two nights as tent campers and had a fab time. Check in easy, with a map of the site and Covid information given.

Very safe as access code needed for the security barrier on entrance to the site. Spacious pitches, and a huge area in the middle of the field for playing games.

Very clean facilities with a good system for Covid 19 compliance, one way systems etc and the facilities deep cleaned on regular intervals through the day.

A lovely village pub about 35 minutes walk in Chelmorton.

Would definitely visit again 😊

 Great campsite, with good precautions against Covid-19 - the owners have gone out of their way to expand pitch sizes (at their expense) to reduce covid risk.

Don't believe BBC weather - was meant to rain all the time we were there and we had 2 essentially rain-free days.

Shower / toilet facilities are good and with a 4 in at once cap (mostly there was no-one else in when I went) so I did not feel at risk to Covid-19.

Location is good with good access to great walks and Buxton. The owners were extremely friendly.

 Lovely weekend at Shallow Grange. Great facilities Lovely and clean with good covid-19 security precautions in place. Peaceful stay on a lovely flat pitch.

If you are looking for peace and quiet with good facilities I would recommend.

We cycled the Tissington trail from camp site and walked the following day.

Thanks we will be back.
