We hired a couple of pods in "the Shire" which was one of the more remote pitches. We chose a quiet place and were pleased with the privacy and views. The disadvantage was a five minute plus walk to the toilet block. This was advertised but we did find the journey wearisome. Rivendale is well placed for access to the Peaks and some of our party went to Alton Towers about 30 minutes' drive away. It was the start of season so quite cold but the pods were snug and robust which we valued on windy nights on the hillside plot. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we much enjoyed the on site pub and tea room and were disappointed that it was closed on Wednesday. WiFi reception was v limited so we were short on information at times. Riverdale is very much a "work in progress" in the part of the campsite where we were located and the immediate area of the pods included a barbed wire fence and a briar patch and there were a lot of earth moving ground preparations evident which was disagreeable to view. Showers pulsed hot and tepid and the toilets were not always very clean. We enjoyed waking to the sounds of willow warblers and goldfinches and had a very good time, but the disadvantages listed means only three stars.
