Finally returned and this time the weather was better, but the warm welcome we received was as good as the first time, the views from this site are as amazing as the facilities on offer, the restaurant offers the chance to 'glamp' and not cook at reasonable prices and the portion sizes keep even the hungriest of campers happy.

It was reasuring to see that when an arguement occured on the site, the warden was very quick to act and in the morning it was stamped on by the management team and the appropriate action taken swifty, leaving the campsite to return to its peaceful state.

I've included some more photo's of the stunning views this campsite offers, and its really useful that some pitches have individual water and electric points so no having to walk half way round the campsite for water, especially in the mornings when you want a cuppa!

Overall, definately recommend this site, as the facilities are second to non, whilst the food in the restaurant is not the cheapest in the area, the portion size and quality definately makes up for it, whilst this isn't my thing, they also offer take away pizza's which is a brilliant idea. I will return later in the year hopefully

We stayed for 4 days/3 nights. On arrival we were greeted warmly by Keith who walked us to our pitch. He changed where we were originally booked to give us a better view and OMG was it a good view. - almost 270 degrees of the rolling Peaks. We noticed that our tyre had a puncture and Keith immediately offered to take it to Buxton to a tyre specialist he knew. We had a bit of a mare and needed to call a mobile caravan engineer who Phil the site warden knew. Phil also lent us his trolley jack and temp stays (long story). Keith stayed to watch the van being righted and to make sure we were OK.
When we eventually made it to the pub in the evening Chris made sure we were well attended at the bar and Keith asked if we wanted to join him and some friends with our drinks...he knew we had had a bad day.
Ate in the restaurant that evening and the food was good.
Facilities on the site were excellent and clean (very new). Pitches a little small but well levelled. Keith also let us attach a pipe to the shared water tap as no one else was pitched near us which effectively gave us a super pitch for £20 per night - incredible.
The High Peaks Trail is just over the A515 which leads on to the Tissington Trail.
Fabulous experience with a great site and the most unbelievably stunning views but even with all that the best thing about The Duke of York are the people. Keith, Chris and Phil were excellent and if the rating were just for them and their service it would be 6 out of 5. Thanks guys for a brilliant holiday - see you again!!!

Having visited the pub and campsite last summer we were very happy to return. The site has continued to improve and many finishing touches have been added including new signage, gate and fencing to the site and many new tree saplings that will enhance the site over the coming years. The new toilet/shower block added last year is still in excellent condition even after 12 months use and is very clean and well maintained.

The standard of food in the pub continues to be excellent with an ample sized menu. Service was really good too. The cask beers are very enjoyable and clearly the cellar is in the hands of an expert.

All in all a pub and campsite to be recommended.

We stayed one night in our motorhome. Reception met by bar staff, very friendly and at £20 a night for 2+2 dogs it was reasonable. Site was very clean, showers spotless. Each pitch has separate water pipe and elec, we had a hard standing and the view was outstanding. no dog walking area but when you're in the peak district you don't need one. Had a pint in the pub once we settled, very refreshing. Would definitely stop again, didn't book just found as passing trade.

Two families, a total of six kids, including a baby. We arrived at 6.45pm and were told we'd have to wait for 45 minutes to get a table. We happily waited outside, supplied with drinks and in a great mood. The mood began to dwindle after a total wait of 2.5 hours wait. The kids were about to eat us alive. Yes, there was a meek apology, but there was no discount or at least a free drink (we spent about £50 on drinks during the wait alone). It was simply embarrassing for them and uncomfortable for us. Too bad, with better communication or a bit of customer friendliness (a 15% discount on the bill? A free bottle of wine?) we would have not felt so exploited.
