Fors and againsts for this site as follows:

Fors: Next door to Monsal Head, fabulous walks. Clean toilets and shower block. Great views of the dales.

Againsts: Woken at 4am by the numerous crows above us in the trees, extremely loud and annoying, first thing we did was go and buy ear plugs! Road traffic noise from cars and motorbikes using it as a race track late at night. Only one shower and loo for women and the same for men, with another unisex toilet. 20p for 90 seconds to shower, water temperature very inconsistent, one second freezing the next scalding! A makeshift 'sink' for pot washing, cold water, no proper drain or plug, or anywhere to put anything! A shame because apart from all this it would be a lovely quiet site, but not if you're in a tent!

Had found the site a week before by chance driving past as the site I wanted was fully booked. Needed to pre-booked somewhere as big event on at Chatsworth House.

Site was very quiet when I arrived, a few other campers on in various parts of the field.

Nice quiet site, lovely location close to Monsall Head.

Toilets were spotless and shower that runs on 20ps was superb with good hot water rather than lukewarm.

Stayed two nights whilst at Chatsworth Country Fair, traffic on lane didn't bother me as live in a rural location with passing road. Superb sunrise at 6 ish on Saturday morning with stunning views across the Derbyshire Dales.

Went out to Bulls Head at Foolow for food on Saturday night and can highly recommend it, well dressings were on as well so a bonus.

Could not fault camping site, no noise from other campers, great value at 6 for my small tent a night. Would not hesitate to stay again here, owners really helpful and nothing too much trouble for them when you asked.

Great little site that we've stayed at a few times. Good area for walking with the Monsal Trail on the doorstep. A few minutes walk to the Monsal Head Hotel (stables bar) and Hobbs cafe. There is a shower and toilet which are exceptionally clean. Shower costs 20 p for 90 seconds. Soap and paper towels would be a welcome addition. The site is well kept and the owners are friendly and welcoming.

Lovely weekend on this peaceful child-free site. Occasional traffic noise from small road and some serious dawn-chorus in the trees flanking the site but apart form that it's very peaceful.

Great walking with the dog along Monsal Trail and surrounding areas. Several pubs within easy reach on foot.

Pub at Monsal Head is expensive due to its prime location but our meals were good quality.

Good shop for provisions in Ashford-on-the-water, just down the road.

Best campsite toilet ever - clean and freshly-painted, hot water and an extractor fan. Cant comment on the showers as we didn't try them but they and all the toilet areas looked clean and well-cared for.

Site is further north on B6465 than map shows, in fact very close to Monsal Head Inn. Ideal for walking/cycling Monsal Trail and many other nearby paths/bridleways. In fact, leave your van on site and save the camping fee at the pay + display up the road ! Site price was 5 for a campervan inc driver, 5 extra per person.

Stayed two nights in October, very quiet, was only van on Friday, then two more on Saturday. Gents' facilities had one WC, one urinal and one shower - might get busy if lots more people. They were very clean, with lots of hot water, and the shower (90 secs for each 20p) has a very useful digital countdown display easily visible while showering. Pot washing is at outside sink with only cold water so best use your van facilities if you have them.

Following wet weather the grass was very soft and mostly on a slight slope, so wheel spin was a possible problem if stopping for a while and then starting off up the slope.

Apart from the Monsal Head Inn there is the Packhorse Inn within half a mile in Little Longstone, and a ice cream van in the car park by day.

Location = Nice around the campsite. Location close to some Monsel Head probably only 200 yards away to get onto the Monsel Trail. Some traffic noise Very close to a pub :)

Facilities = Basic clean toilets/sink. Showers (1 men and 1 women) 20p for 3 mins. Sink outside toilet block for washing pots etc(cold water only).

Overall = Basic campsite that's on a slight slope but this is expected in the area. Good size so not to populated with other tents/caravans Lovely, friendly owners. Great walks and good prices.

This was my second stay at this campsite. Still a lovely little site though the sloping field may make pitching larger tents a little 'interesting'

The showers are as immaculate as ever though the showers are now coin operated. 20p for 90 seconds. It takes 20p and 1 coins

Not the quietest site. But the owners have no control over the nearby road, sheep, cows, jackdaws, crows and other noisy critters.

Lovely site, set in stunning country side. Very quiet with basic but clean facilities. Only negative was a member of staff who was incredibly rudeto our party following a misunderstanding over the sites pricing structure. The pack horse pub nearby does excellent real ales and food and the stable bar at monsal head is also good. I would recommend the site if you can keep out of the aforementioned staff members way. Also the first place I've camped and they've charged for dogs.

Reviewer: Hellychopper 1 review from this member

Had a one night stay at this lovely quiet campsite with lots of room for everyone. Field is on a very slight slope so be careful when pitching up. Showers and toilets were very clean although limited in number. No electric for hairdryers but why do you need one when camping?! If, like us, you are interested in real ales and pleasant pubs you are very close to the The Stables Bar at Monsall Head Hotel (3 min walk), Packhorse Pub in Little Longstone (10 minutes)and two more in Great Longstone (20 minutes). We ate at The Crispin in GL, excellent! It does get busy so would recommend going early or booking a table. The walks in the area are great, but not flat, definitely be ready for an incline every now and again!

What a lovely little site.

Road was a little noisy but, compensation came

In the form of stunning early morning views.

Toilets very clean and comfortable although

Only three loos and two showers.

Field got a little muddy so careful where you put he car.

DOE students also camping all weekend, quiet and friendly

Close to good walking routes and interesting pubs. Had a great weekend and would visit again
