 We enjoyed our stay at Knotlow Farm. It is easy to find and nice and central for Buxton and Bakewell. We did 2 walks from the site to Lathkill dale and Monsal dale, which was great not having to drive for the day.

Would have been nice to have a pub/ bar within walking distance too, but you can't have everything :-) We had beautiful weather during our stay which always helps.

You can order pizza each night, which is cooked on site and you collect. We didn't do this, but saw a lot of people collecting theirs.

Although there is only one toilet block on site, we never found this to be an issue during our stay, but during the school holidays I imagine it might be an issue.

The showers were 20p for 2 minutes and were kept clean and tidy throughout, following Covid guidelines everybody wore masks in the communal area.

They have Yurts on the same field as the electric pitches and we watched the very efficient cleaning teams coming in on a morning to deep clean.

We had a great stay and would definitely go back.

 Great facilities and a lovely stay! Super close to some great walking routes for anyone wanting to pitch up and take a hike.

Site offers bacon rolls and pizza if you book the evening before (great food).

Given the current situation with Covid, none of the sites were over crowded so owners have done well to manage this.

Will definitely book this site again next time we fancy a hike in the Peak District

 Located on a working farm in a high, rolling part of the Derbyshire Dales, this site worked for us for a short break.

There are two great features that sat this site apart from many other sites; It rents fire-pits and isn't too precious about how you use them, and it sells excellent pizzas in the evening and breakfast baps in the morning.

It wasn't overcrowded and had plenty of space. The camping fields are quite sloping and mostly grass pitches without power. There are a set of four Yurts and four Pods, but it's mostly suited for tents. We stayed in our VW campervan along with our friends in their Laika medium sized motorhome.

It rained heavily the day before we got there but we got on and off the pitch just fine. The wash facilities are little cramped in these COVID times and they require you to wear a mask when using them for the benefit of other users. Nice people running the site.

I'd go back!

 The site is fairly sloping in many places so probably not great if you cannot manage that. But there is an upside to that which was that there were lots of open spaces for kids to play. Also great to see all the families just having a good time, toasting marshmallows on the brazier etc.

May sound like hell to some folks but its all grass so no noise from bikes etc on roads, just good family fun.

With it being a peak weekend we were sceptical about the facilities coping but there was always a toilet or shower vacant and always clean.

 Lovely welcome and a very clean well organised campsite in beautiful surroundings.

The pizza order was brilliant and the kids loved them!

Highly recommend.

 Stayed here for a weekend. It's in a lovely location, easy to find and the site is clean, well serviced and well organised without feeling regimented.

You can choose your own pitch on a designated field and there's plenty of space- although I don't know how much busier the site would be without covid restrictions.

Showers and toilets were spotless- 20p for a 2min shower and the water was always hot. The takeaway pizza service was great. You can walk up the hill to a nice pub, about 40mins, and there are lovely walks straight from the site. Dog was v happy.

Would definitely return.

 Had a great weekend. Check in was easy. There are three camping fields. It looked like two for families and one for adults. The adults field is on a slope with some flat bits.

Toilets and washing facilities all clean. Masks required for both. Felt very safe. Nice pub with large beer garden (again felt safe) 15 minutes walk away in Monyash.

The surrounding area is very nice with good options for walking. Other campers were polite and no issues with noise.

All in all a very enjoyable weekend.

 Great campsite, lovely location. Showers, toilets and pot washing facilities excellent. Would stay again but we would request the Hazel

Site or field on the right as the one we stayed in was a very long walk to the facilities and the majority of plots on a slope

 It was the first time that we have stayed here but definitely won't be the last. The campsite have stopped taking DofE groups and so we knew that we get a peaceful break!

We pitched our tent on a relatively horizontal part of one of the fields and the views were fabulous. There were very few people camping (still the school term) and we had the field to ourselves which was great. Unfortunately, our airbed pump had blown a fuse and would not work, but the owners were very helpful and lent us theirs.

Loos/ showers and pot washing area were always clean and tidy and the grass was cut regularly. The limestone way crosses the campsite, so we could walk from the tent and we also watched people trying to work out where they should be walking.

Showers are 20p for 2 minutes, ample time for a decent shower and good value too.
