We visited on a school holiday camping trip with family. The owners were really friendly and welcoming and ensured that we had pitches together which was great as often we have found this to be difficult.
We were in a back field which was near to the toilet block and had pitches along the wall leaving the rest of the field free for the kids to roam and play which was excellent and we didn't feel hemmed in. The site was fairly quiet as there aren't many places to congregate like playgrounds.
The shower blocks and toilets are modern and kept spotlessly clean. There are only 3 (or 4?) showers but there was always one available when needed. No hair dyers or plug sockets.
There was an activity for the children with Farmer Ed which was a great idea but we found out about it too late to join in.
There are a lot of rules but these were adhered to and resulted in a pleasant stay with little noise and disruption which was fantastic for us as we like our sleep! There isn't anything to do for the kids but we brought games and they were happy with this and made their own entertainment. Plenty of local footpaths to explore and nearby attractions so nobody was bored! Buxton was just down the road with a Morrisons and Waitrose for provisions.
Overall a lovely and well kept site, would heartily recommend.
