Why stay here ...

Castleton Club site has now reopened following redevelopment. Many exciting improvements have been carried out including brand new toilet and shower facilities, 12 new serviced pitches, increased spacing between pitches and a new motorhome waste point. We look forward to welcoming you on site soon.

Castleton Club Site is situated within a bowl at the heart of the Peak National Park and boasts beautiful views. The caravan site is ideally suited for all interests and seasons, with each pitch being all-weather and local shops open all year round. The Christmas period is particularly spectacular, with town streets awash with festive lights and late night shopping for those last minute treats. There are a variety of pubs to choose from in the local village as well.

Castleton Club Site has easy access to all kinds of fun outdoor activities for the family to enjoy, such as rock climbing, potholing, biking and horse riding. The area offers endless lovely landscapes to stroll in at your leisure, including the dramatic Winnatt's Pass, Mam Tor and Ladybower Reservoir. The village of Castleton, dominated by the ruins of William the Conqueror's Peveril Castle from which it gets its name, is a convenient half a mile away. It's hard to imagine another caravan site that can offer such a selection of natural and historical features. All in all, the entire area promises an unforgettable holiday getaway.

Enjoyed our stay

This was our first time on this site...we were not disappointed. It is very handy for Castleton and Hope. The site was very clean. The toilet block impeccably so. We do not have children so are unsure if there even were facilities for them. Thanks to the very helpful wardens who managed to get us an extra night and thanks also to the lady warden who advised us to leave at 12.30 as we were moving on to Chatsworth...her timing was just right as we arrived at Chatsworth at 1pm! Our dog enjoyed his time at Castleton. The dog walk is small and lead only but there are walks nearby even for older dogs as ours is. He kept wanting to go back into the Pub where we ate for a lie down. All the pubs appeared to be dog friendly and some of the shops too. It is a pity we live so far away from Castleton as it would be a great weekend break. Thanks again to the friendly wardens.

Loved it!

This was our first visit to a Caravan and Motorhome site and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. The site and facilities are superb and the motorhome service point was great. The local village has lots of pubs and it was a shame we weren’t there long enough to try them all! It’s a walkers paradise with amazing views .... I’ve a feeling we may be back for more walking and to visit the pubs we missed 🤗

Do not book days separately and all should be well

Our problems arose when we could only book 3 days initially, when another day became available we booked this separately. When we arrived we were told that we would have to move from our none awning pitch to an awning pitch (bigger pitch) on the 4th final day. We did ask if we could stay on the smaller pitch and was told that was not possible unless a pitch under repair became available. Thursday we asked again but they could still not say, we did not like to be rude but had wondered why after being told by other campers that other people were being asked to move but the opposite way round so common sense makes us wonder why they could not let us and the other people where possible stay put. Not wanting to appear rude but wondering why they were not able to work this out we waited until Friday as we had noticed the cone had been removed. Visit to the office at 10:30 was still not able to confirm we could stay put and said they would know by 12:00 if the other pitch was back in use meaning we could stay. Importantly they did not say that we could not go out and that we needed to return to the office at 12:00 no later or that they would ring us to confirm that we still wanted to stay. When we returned to the site at 14:15, the warden had given the repaired pitch away meaning we could not stay on the pitch as they had tried to contact us on the number held on file which is a work number not in use when on holiday which we would have told them had they told us that they were going to phone us. They said that they needed to confirm that we still wanted to stay on our pitch as we may have changed our minds between 10:30 & 12:00 !!!!! If this is their procedure, fine but not fair if you don't share this with members. We were that disappointed that we moved to another site for the last 2 nights.

"It does what it says on the tin" - fabulous

As new members this is only our second stay on a club site and we were not disappointed. The reviews from previous members were overall very accurate and a good reflection on the site, its location and the facilities. We were warmly welcomed on arrival, directed to our pitch and got on with setting up. We were on one of the new serviced pitches not far from the road, and have got to say were not disturbed in any way with traffic noise. The toilets were immaculate whenever we used them, showers fabulous with good pressure and plenty of hot water. I just wonder why some users of the gents toilets did not always leave the WC’s in the immaculate condition in which they found them giving unnecessary work for the wardens. I wonder what their toilets are like at home. As other reviewers have mentioned the site is close to Castleton village with some lovely pubs and a couple of shops both selling the essential groceries, with one doubling up as a bakery & off-licence, and the other a post office. There are plenty of walks in the vicinity and there are four caverns providing tours to view the areas infamous “Blue John” stone. We visited only one of these (Blue John Cavern) so are not in a position to compare them, but nonetheless it was an interesting tour and good exercise descending 245 steps, climbing the same number back up. Peverill castle is also worth the effort to visit, walking up the steep path if only for the views over the village and further afield to the Hope Valley, Mam Tor and the other high points in the area. We will definitely return
