 We searched for weeks to find a campsite that could accommodate our need for multiple large pitches, both electric and non electric. We finally came across The Duke William and booked it immediately. Rang up and Jan was absolutely fantastic, booked us in with no issues.

A few days before we were due to arrive we phoned up and asked if we could swap one of the non electric pitches for on with electric hook up, she was unsure if she would be able to accommodate us but said she would be able to let us know on arrival.

Directions to the campsite were easy to follow and we had no issues finding it.

On arrival Jan came out and greeted us with 'you must be my Blackpool lot' which was a lovely touch. She managed to sort us out the extra electric pitch and the payment process was quick and simple. Rhianne took us down to the field and showed us which pitches were ours.

Absolutely amazing views from the campsite and Rhianne is brimming with information about Matlock.

We had a few beers in the pub before and got talking to Phil about how much we enjoy a game of darts. They invited us down the following day to have a tournament with their darts team. We were in the pub every night and the service we received was nothing short of phenomenal. We truly felt at home.

On our last night we had a meal in the restaurant, with there being so many of us we prebooked our meals with Rhianne for the following day. Phil made sure they had everything in stock that we had ordered and even managed to get the brie wedges we were told were out of stock!

We originally booked for 6pm but phoned and asked to be moved back to 8pm after a late lunch, which again they did with no problems. When we arrived at the pub we had a drink in the bar before they called us through. It was my birthday and when we got to our table Rhianne had decorated the area with birthday balloons which was a lovely touch.

The food was absolutely amazing, all served together and piping hot. Rhianne was absolutely amazing with the kids! The mixed grill was HUGE, kids chicken meals were proper chicken breast not cheap nuggets as you'd expect, and the steak and ale pie, wow! My sister in law said it was the best pie she had ever had and deserved its own advertising board😂

The pub are also participating in the dine out to eat out scheme making the food and soft drinks half price and an absolute bargain!

We couldn't recommend this pub/camping site any more! First time campers are converted! Oh and the shower for the camping facilities 😍 beats my shower at home!

We will be back. Biggest thankyou to Jan, Phil, Rhianne and Toni. You made my birthday! See you next time x

 Great little site, close to town - which is what we wanted.

Pub ok, landlord a character and pub has nice outdoor space.

Only negative could be church bells that ring every 15mins 24 hours a day!

But we will be back.

 Absolutely brilliant little site! The staff couldn’t do enough and where very informative about the area!

The food was top notch also. Our dogs were welcomed and were given fresh water, with ice! We can’t endorse this site enough!

We’ll definitely return!

 We stayed here for one night, but wished it could have been longer. We will certainly go back next year. We found the Duke of William through friends, who we camped with.

The owners and staff and the pub regulars are very friendly and give you a very warm welcome.

The food is lovely, and the carvery was worth staying longer for. We were going to leave at 10ish in the morning.

But after hearing about the cavery we decided to stay to try it, we were all very pleased we did.

The facilities are clean and well looked after. I would recommend the Duke of William to anyone who wants to explore that part of the country.

There are church bells in the village and I liked to hear them. I didn't find them too loud even though they go through the night.

The Duke of William also has very good music nights so check out their website, that also gives you directions on where to find them.

 We have just returned from 4 nights stay at The Duke William Matlock. It is a must return. Phill, Janet & all staff made us so welcome.

Camping field was well drained short mowed and lovely views. Toilets and shower spotlessly clean. (shower pressure to die for). Food cooked to order.

A very good variety of food on menu including Gluten Free, Good hearty portions and good value for money.

All served with a smile. Drinks reasonably priced.

FMP Worcestershire.

Reviewer: Oisin 1 review from this member

 Great little find, easy walk into Matlock, uphill on way back minutes walk from War Memorial at the back of St. Giles church (which chimes on the hour light sleepers)

Campsite basic and sloping, some hard standing which is basically pub carpark.

EHU on left side of field only. Dogs allowed.

Two loos male& female and X1 shower only (free to use), beer nice and reasonable. Didn't eat in the pub.

Friendly bar staff. I didn't see any children so gave score of middle of the road 5.

All in all, I will be back.

 Just had 3 nights on d/william. Basic grass field with ehu, need ramps but not too bad. Janet & phill have put great effort into the toilets, 1 gents, 1 ladies + shower room with massive new shower cubicle.

Also the pub. They serve outstanding meals all with a smile from all the staff. Bus stops outside both ways.

Would stay again here no problem.
