The one at Bakewell looks good and Smeatons Lakes just outside Newark is very nice as well but not cheap.

Hi
If the one at bakewell you are talking about is "Greenhills" i can vouch for that one i go there a lot has a bar, shop, and very clean showers, also playing field and a small adventure playground. even the dogs have there own walk and secure field to be let loose on xxxx

That sounds fantastic bobtail

I can't believe Brude's made it to ten without us going camping! H will think it's fantastic!

We did look at new tents in CCC with Brude in tow, and you should have seen his face at the idea of a fabrikennel we could all fit in

We go to Callow Top. just outside Ashbourne in Derbyshire, only about an hour out of Sheffield, great campsite with plenty of pitches, a decent bar, pool for the kids and their own brewery on camp. Great for walkng in the area too, The Tissington Trail runs alongside the campsite.

For a quick trip, we rather like Hatfield Marina, just outside Doncaster. Comparatively cheap, clean facilities, big plots and quiet paths for kids to play on but also quiet enough that those of us with no kids can't hear them!

I would recommend 'Orchard Park' at Tuxford, its a family friendly site. Its a quiet site (ie no entertainment) but has a lovely orchard for kids to play hide and seek in and ride bikes around. They let u pick apples, pears and plums when they're in season.

i know of a great one in Edale, called FieldHead campsite but if you dont mind going a bit further check out Grouse and Claret Campsite this one is really good for kids, we took niece there and she loved it.

Have you been to Thrybergh? its just passed Rotherham on the way to Doncaster. There's an adsa near by. the facilities are ok from what I remember, but its been about 4 years.
Good Luck

i know what u mean, basically a field where kids can be kids and not worried about damaging the grass.

I've just check out Grouse & Claret Campsite on AA route planner and from city center of shef it takes 37 mins and is only 20 miles.

I would personally recommend this site because:

- It has a great play area for kids,
- depending where everyone pitches their tents there is plenty of space for kids to play, me and niece were able to play Frisbee / football / and tennis with no problem (could be an issue if full)
- there is a river at the bottom of the site and kids can play it in, (its not that deep, but I didn't go all the way in)
- Nice pub on site to eat at / get drinks to take to your tent
- plenty to do near by, village of Bakewell, and Buxton
- plenty of nice walks to do,
