Why stay here ...

Castleton Club Site is situated within a bowl at the heart of the Peak National Park and boasts beautiful views. One of our many Derbyshire caravan sites, this 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.

The site is absolutely beautiful with the best walks. Would recommend the caves but you have to book before you go. Pubs and all very good with very good food and service. Would highly recommend a visit

Missing something

Serviced pitch and shared facilities were absolutely fine, however there is no shop for essentials on site and no food vans visit. Yes there are small supermarkets and pubs to eat at in Castleton and a curry house in Hope (about a mile in either direction) but when the weather is bad, you don't want to cook and you are on foot, a food delivery service would be welcome. I appreciate the warden might not want to recommend anywhere to eat or drink locally but here was no relevant info at all available for first timers to the area. If you are going to walk one way or the other for food or drink, head for Castleton. The Swiss Tap bar on the main road just before the village is recommended. The local attractions are great, but not the local amenities.

Not all that you might have come to expect from this site

A favourite site and it will remain so, however not all of the advertised or expected facilities/amenities are available. Just back from Castleton and currently the site has NO gas (so the website needs to be changed to reflect this), and has no 'little shop' facilities. Discussed the matter with a warden, and my interpretation is that there is an ongoing dispute between the wardens and the Club over the operation and supply of gas bottles. Hence the site no longer supplies Calor gas bottles. Whether you consider the availability of Gas bottles on site as an expectation given the price we pay for pitches, or as a bonus, then thats up to you, but whatever the website needs to change to reflect the situation. As a result were also unable to comply with the Club Health and Safety requests posted around the site, along the lines of 'use your own facilities where possible to reduce the risk of spreading Covid', Basically we didnt have enough spare gas to use our own Motorhome shower without risking running out for cooking and heating. (Without boring you further with a full report of how this affected our holiday the nearest Calor supplier is the garage in Hope, about a mile away. Delivery is not a service offered by them). The site also now has no essential shopping amenities, like bread, milk, kiddies ice creams etc... Again a dispute between the wardens and Club. Otherwise, given the current Covid restrictions affecting the shower block limiting numbers, and no drying room facility, things were to their usual high level of cleanliness and organisation. So, in summary, if any of the above is of significance to you then give the site a call before you arrive to check the latest situation. Thanks for reading.

First trip out 2021

We knew it was going to be different. Castleton site is in an excellent location a short walk into the village where there is a good selection of pubs cafes and shops not all of which were open. The village is Dog friendly with most of the pubs accepting dogs some providing water for them. We loved Plant and Planet a Vegan takeaway in the village. Most of the pubs and hotels are now also offering a Vegan option on their menus, our favourite was Pizza Box at the George Hotel. There are many walks however with elderly dogs we are restricted, the walk from Castleton to Hope is lovely with a dog friendly pub at the end of it. Facilities on the site were very limited due to Covid restrictions which did make life on the site difficult, no showers and queues for toilets wasn't pleasant. The site is dog friendly with two dog walks and bins provided. Some of the staff in my opinion appeared anxious I got the distinct impression one or two didn't really want to be there. Overall we enjoyed our stay and yes of course we would go back because we love Castleton Village.
