Just spent a few days here because this was one of the few sites near Buxton that had vacancies. We noticed the earlier reviews about the industrial estate but this did not bother us.
I would recommend the camp site to a small group with one or two people with one car, no gazebo and no dog because of all the extra`s that are charged. Would not recommend to a group with a young family because though there are a few animals in a field, this entertained our kids for about half an hour and there was nothing else for them, and nowhere for them to play with a ball.
We had a choice of pitches which was good. Though it was nice to have the shelter in the trees, there were some tree stumps that were hidden by overgrown grass, so you have to be careful when driving.
The toilets were new, and kept generally clean, but I think that £1.00 for a 5 minute shower is expensive. I personally did not have to queue for the two toilets and two sinks, but the ladies in the group often had to wait.
We found a couple good of walks close by, and its about 30 minutes on foot into Buxton. There are also places nearby to stock up on essentials such as Tesco Express and Iceland. I would agree with an earlier review recommending Morrisions. We called on the way home and had an excellent bacon roll and cuppa.
I don’t think that we will be coming back to this site because we generally have young children with us, so will find a site with more to entertain them,
