 We had an amazing time, there was everything we needed and everything was very clean.

There was hand sanitiser everywhere also and we felt that the staff were doing everything they could do to make things as safe as possible.

It was our first time here and we will definitely return.

 Lovely site, toilets regularly cleaned, kids absolutely loved it.

Zip wire closed due to covid but distancing in site was sensible without being intrusive.

Excellent security and site rules adhered to by almost all campers.

Thank you and we will definitely be returning.

 Great site plenty of parks for kids to play on and very safe. Great cafe reasonable priced.

Brilliant clean showers and toilets. We went Monday to Thursday so was not as busy as weekends.

Only negative remarks are there is no shop to buy essentials but close to supermarket in Riddings. And a swimming pool would be the icing on the cake if there was one.

Lovely walks nearby from the camp.

Reviewer: Footer 1 review from this member

 Stayed here for a couple of nights with friends, we had four tents and asked if we could be placed together and they made it happen.

The staff are friendly and very helpful there was regular ground staff cleaning the toilets and clearing the bins,

The whole site was very clean and a pleasure to stay and will be returning in the future and I'd recommend this site

Just a great site.

 Stay away from pitches 30 and 31 no ! TV reception, and birds **** on us literally, huge trees, 3 nights a rip off for the price, not good for a post lock down trip,

Staff were very nice and polite.

 We booked this weekend for the location but would definitely revisit for the site.

Beautiful site and fabulous facilities, never seen such a great play area with the horses!

Staff accommodated our late arrival without issue.

The chip shop in Ripley is well worth a visit

Reviewer: Hel A 1 review from this member

 As a family run site, Golden Valley could teach some of the bigger tourist chains a thing or two. Every member of staff operate as a team and go to the nth degree to ensure guests are happy. The amenities are spotlessly clean owing to staff cleaning them on a cycle around the clock - even at night. The site also offers those little luxurious extras - a family bathroom being one! Who would expect to be able to have a warming bath on a chilly night? I didnít, but knowing I could if I wanted was nice!

The site is mostly geared to meet the needs of families and groups with children. Entertainment is offered for children, with a recently built social club which offers an evening disco. There are other amenities for kids too - an adventure play park, mini golf, Segway, dog walking and a nature trail. On a bank holiday, such as Easter, the staff offered children Easter events such as an egg hunt and a ďlogĒ ride around the park attached to the back of a golf cart. The bar area itself is quite small as is the cafe, yet still staff donít seem to keep guests waiting long! Food and drink are very reasonably priced and good quality. Food offered is generally bar snack types - cooked breakfasts, burgers, chips, pizza etc. Which you are free to consume in the eating areas or take back to your tent/van.

The site does have some rules to ensure the friendly atmosphere and comfort of all guests, which campers are happy to adhere to. For example, no bbqs are allowed directly on the grass, and have to be raised (of which bricks are offered and left for guests use) and no camp fires are allowed at all. At first this was a little disappointing, as I do like a camp fire, however, the grounds are kept so beautifully I think this is perfectly understandable - the owners want the grounds to remain neat, tidy and inviting for both campers and children to run about on. There are also rules requesting noise, music and children to be kept to a minimum after 10. 30pm. Again this is to ensure everybody gets a comfortable nights sleep.

I think itís the team effort of staff that makes this site such a perfect find for a lovely weekend/bank holiday trip to explore the Derby Dales. I canít recommend this site highly enough and, having been twice already at short notice on a bank holiday, will certainly be visiting again. To any staff reading this, thank you for a lovely time. Your efforts didnít go unnoticed.
