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.
