General

Located on the A515 adjacent to The Duke of York Pub & Restaurant, five miles South of Buxton and 12 miles to the North of Ashbourne, the site is an ideal base for those wanting to explore what the Peak Park has to offer. There is easy access to the Tissington and High Peak trails.

The site offers tent and touring pitches, with the touring pitches featuring hardstanding grounding, a water supply to each, and electric hook-ups, all with spectacular views over the High Peak and beyond.

The amenities block provides all you will need to make your stay comfortable with pot-wash facilities, toilets and showers at no extra cost. Underfloor heating is also provided so that the winter months needn't be uncomfortable.

Perfect for families, couples, singles and groups wanting to get away, with the pub and restaurant on your doorstep, where better to look at staying all year round? When making your booking, please remember to make a reservation in the restaurant as it does get very busy during peak times.

We welcome families, walkers, cyclists, bikers and dogs so long as each is well behaved!

    We arrived on the Friday, and the check in time of 3pm was getting close, we called the DOY and they were very helpful confirming they would wait for us, thus saving any stress for us to get there.
    We were allotted a pitch and pitched, what a wonderful view which came with the countryside smell, nothing reflecting the slurry of the other review. Must admit that's a countryside fragrance, which us townie people don't do too well as the previous review, aged as it is and reflecting the previous owners.
    The toilet block, always a focus to judge a place on, it was warm, it was clean, the cubicles had locks on that worked.
    Moving onto the DOY we booked in for a meal, on a busy Saturday night, I can see why it's busy, the food is plentiful whilst also being very well presented, the salad and homemade coleslaw is worth it!! Their service, whilst we were very relaxed and not on a time limit, was attentive and communicative as time elapsed. Back to the site, the new owners have stamped their imagine on the place, and whilst talking with them clearly have a plan for further improvement, obviously with more bookings, which we will go again, the money will support their plans.
    Finally, the Friday night saw a water leak early in the evening and suspension of supply by Severn Trent who performed well and got things going by late evening, a situation the DOY could affect, but the lady from the DOY went round and told all the people on the caravan site, and followed up the following morning. Touch of communicative class!

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I could mention, was the soap in the sinks in the shower block seemed a tad sparse

    SLURRY !!!!!!!!!! We packed up our tent and dog at 11 pm (yes pm) on the second night of our 4 day stay at the peak district. The Duke of York made our stay to the worst camping experience I’ve ever had since 20 years of camping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Here we go Duke of York, I think you expected this. I have lots of time to write this because we drove back home.
    - We sat in front of our tent at 10.00 pm enjoyed the view - trying to tune out the noise of the road - till a farmer decided to spread SLUURY next to use.
    - He came 4 times fully loaded
    - After he started spreading his SLURRY right behind us, from where the wind was blowing, I decided to ask the Duke of York if they could not stop it, and I got a NO.
    - Can you imagine that smell !!!!!!!!!!!!!! after 30 minutes I felt so sick, and shocked that no one warned us. WE would have moved our tent and wouldn’t have said a thing.
    - Lovely grazing fields around the campsite, with just little stone walls to separate campsite with farmland, lucky us to have had the little stone wall.
    I grow up right beside a farm and I knew if we’ve stayed here we would have smelled for the rest of our 1 week holiday.
    In the PUB they had no sympathy for us at all. NO CUSTORMER SERVICE !!! They started laughing and said: “this is the country side love” and we were funny from the begging on because of asking friendly if we could change our booking. We accepted the no we got, as it was our mistake booking this campsite at the first place.
    From that point on I knew why we asked, as we arrived , I just had a bad feeling about this place.
    I won’t start writing about… the grass not cut, no bin bags, the tent pitch is on a sloop, designated dog walking fields can´t be used as due to SLURRY, noisy road ……………
    I feel very sorry for this place and wish them all the best to survive. As it was summer holidays and all other campsites we passed where nearly full. The Duke of York was the one with a couple of caravans and us.
    Hope to find a closure now. Oh yes we did not get a cent back, as we should aspect camping beside SLURRY on our holiday ;-)
    But I think the DUKE of YORK needs the 100 pounds for 4 nights, more than we do!!
    GOOD LUCK

From the manager...

As you can see from the date on this review - it is an old one. We took over The Duke of York in October 2016. We have been working hard to build up the business of the pub and campsite again. I cant and wont comment on the review as I was not present at the time. If you have read this far then hopefully you are prepared to give The Duke of York a go? Before making your decision - please take the time to look at our pages
Thank you
