Great family campsite

McDonagh, Toni - 05/06/2024

I have stayed here many times with friends and family from small groups to large groups, nothing is too much when it comes to abby and Adam they are more than happy to help, they have a small play area with monkey bars slide etc, but also have 2 wooden huts with games for all the family to play which are great in the wet weather.Toilets and showers are cleaned regularly with plenty available even showers for parents with young child so they can shower at the same time. They have a board up which gives you different places to visit which I found extremely helpful the first time we stayed in April last year, we have been back in the children's holiday for the past yearI would highly recommend staying here if your after a lovely quiet stay even when it's busy I found this site to be great value for money they have a pub onsite where they serve food or you can just enjoy a drink inside or outside weather permitting.The location is great between Bakewell and buxton and matlock
