 Location was perfect.

Showers were clean and not far to walk to, at the rear of the pub.

No one else on the camp field so even better. No bells or whistles but a pleasant relaxing time had.

 Liked:We found the site to be in a great location with local amenities within walking distance. The site itself was relatively well maintained and tidy.

Phil the owner made himself known and was friendly.

Disliked :no proper facility for sluice disposal had to use the W. C in the toilet /shower block with no water supply to rinse out.

Toilet /Shower amenities were very untidy on the Sunday morning with paper towels strewn about the floor and there was no loo roll in the dispensers, though in fairness they were clean and tidy over the rest of our stay.

Reviewer: Tys503 1 review from this member

 Small convenient site close to the town.

No assigned pitches so relies on people to distance each other.

Church close by that has a bell that rings frequently 24hours. Not invasive but can be heard.

Facilities are good, shower and toilets clean and tidy. No washing up facilities, we have our own so wasn't a problem.

Friendly and comfortable site.

Reviewer: Kerryb20 1 review from this member

 The campsite sits directly behind the pub, It is on a hill so bear this in mind and levellers may be required (the top few pitches are relatively flat).

Views from the site were fantastic. EHU is available and fresh water. The toilets are attached to the pub 3 toilets and 2 Showers very clean facilities. The pub menu was extensive and we ate there both nights. Staff were very helpful and pleasant.

Location was perfect, a short walk into the town (approx 5 min) and lots of footpaths to take advantage of.

If I had to fault anything it was that the camp field did have quite a few doggy deposit's left, more of a reflection of the dog owners than the pub, we picked some up as we walked round with our own dogs.

I will definitely be revisiting.

We didn't have kids but I had to score child friendliness nothing on site for them but the town has a very child friendly park.

 Great site, great pub and facilities

The owner was more than helpful as it was our first time in a camper

I would definitely recommend only downside was the church bell that rang every half hour 24 hours. So sleep was broken.

But lovely place

 Site located in starkholmes village on the edge of town, at back of the pub. Nearest convenience store and chip shop about half mile.

Site owner and staff friendly and helpful. A few electrical hookups.

The downsides are that the site is sloping and does not have gravel tracks to the unmarked pitches, so there would be potential to get stuck in wet weather. No Chemical or grey water disposal facilities. One pub visitor used field to exercise and toilet his dog.

Ok for one night only. £16 per night (2 people) + £5 electrical hookup.

 Friendly hosts, great beer. Fantastic location.

If you're adventurous try the mixed grill ( best starter Iíve ever had!)

And even more adventurous have a walk round Giddy edge. Book now.

Reviewer: Scaley143 4 reviews from this member

 I stayed here for 4 days. Phill and Janet were the top hosts.

I stayed in my campervan, on the pub car park. Electric hookup was provided and the shower was better than the one I have at home.

The campsite wasn't being used at the time as it was a bit waterlogged, and Phill was expecting a busy weekend and wanted it mud free.

The pub was cosy and it wasn't long before all the staff made me very welcome.

I had a meal there, on a couple of occasions, and they were tasty, hot and homemade.

The current protective measures were in place, and Janet made sure these were adhered to.

Overall, a great place to stay, on the doorstep of the Peak District, and I will definitely be staying there again. Soon I hope.
