We visited for 3 nights to include new years eve. Great for a winter break toilets clean and warm. Cafe on site and bar. Party on new years eve was good buffet included...buy your tickets early as they had sold out! A good way of bringing the new year in and some good walking done too

Great location for the Tissington trail. Staff were friendly and helpful, good clean facilities. The pitch was a little water logged so we could not pitch the awning however generally happy with our stay with one exception. The dog mess on our pitch and along the pathways and around the toilets coupled with poor lighting at night meant it was...

Thank you for your review; we are glad you enjoyed your stay despite the soggy weather. Very sorry about the doggy doodoo, With the pitches, amenity buildings, play area etc spread wide apart over about 15 acres it takes about a day to litter pick/dog mess pick thoroughly over this area - to undo what a dog/litter bug does in...

I cannot fault this place at all !! It was exactly what they said over the phone 😊 It was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. All staff were jolly and very helpful.

Campsite was easy to get to from main road, and it was nice and quiet. Helpful reception and lovely pitch. It is ideally situated for exploring the Derbyshire Dales. There is also a regular bus stopping just outside the site.

First time away for Halloween weekend with the kids in the van, chose this place as had a pub on site if the weather got too bad, there was also a Halloween disco was on Saturday night.

Thank you for your kind words, glad you enjoyed the Halloween party. It had rained hard for several nights - which did not help the pitches. The central road is being tarmac surfaced over the shut down period, which should improve the road surface. We look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes from our staff.

Just returned from three nights here. We left after two in our touring caravan due to the constant rain. Now let me be clear! I'm not holding rivendale responsible for the weather! And I know it was an old quarry when I booked! Here goes. Site The whole site has little or no drainage. When it rains all of the...

Thank you for your review; we are glad you liked the cafe. The main access road is tarmac but the loop roads around the pitches are limestone and the lighting is low level; this was a planning requirement by the National park Authority. However, we agree with their low lighting policy and many visitors appreciate being able to see a...

Stayed for 3 nights at Rivendale campsite. Staff on reception gave us all the information we needed and we found our pitch easily. We checked out the facilities and found them very good, and nice and clean, and warm.

We recently had a nice week in Riven-dell in our caravan and tent. The caravan pitch was fine but the tent pitch was wet and we ended up in a puddle. The facilities were good and clean and the shop, cafe. bar and restaurant were all reasonably priced and useful. Unfortunately we were there just as low season started and...

Thank you for your review. We have installed additional drainage in the main access anticipating surfacing it with tarmac this winter (which should just be a 2 day task). Unfortunately grass tends to get compacted as tents and awning are repeatedly pitched and occupied on the same areas - which is at its worst at the end of the season....

On arrival and booking in was very prompt and welcoming. We found our pitch along with three other families and tried our best to position our selves in the mud.

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review. You were part of the same group as Chris H (who reviewed 3 weeks ago under mixed feelings). I understand the grievance that can be caused by being asked to be quiet & then perceiving other people getting away with it, as it were, - but our staff can only...
