“We had a wonderful time staying at Bank House Farm recently for 4 nights. Despite some mixed weather and terrible rain we thoroughly enjoyed the walks along the Manifold Way, which was so close and easy to access from the site. Your facilities are excellent - immaculately clean, modern and warm shower and toilet blocks, especially when the weather was cold and damp, this was very welcome. A really nice touch was the radio being on, making the facilities even more homely. A great inside pot washing and laundry area, again with the radio and book/video collection. The hard standing pitches by the river give wonderful views of the river and countryside beyond. Finally, thank you for your hospitality and chats. We will definitely be back and we will highly recommend the site to everyone we know.”

“What an amazing place! My husband and I have just returned from a Friday to Tuesday trip in the caravan. Our pitch was so beautiful alongside the stream, although we missed a trick and should have had the van facing the stream to take in the view! The owners were very friendly, helpful and very welcoming! Toilets and showers were immaculate and the dog walking field was perfect for when you just need to give the pooch a little run and a quick wee. ”

“Second time using trailer tent. Top field has lovely views and great sized pitches. The facilities are spotless .
Ideal for dogs with lovely safe dog walking field. Amazing walks nearby to the hidden gem of Beresford Dale
Staff couldn't do enough to help including posting back my rogue number plate that decided it wanted to extend it's stay at this relaxing beautiful site.”

“Amazing site with very helpful staff. The toilets and showers were the best I've ever had on a site and the grounds are meticulously kept. Opening the back doors of the van to lay in bed watching the stream beside our pitch was the icing on the cake.”

“We spent 5 nights at this site and after 30 odd years of camping this is definitely in the top 5 of our sites. The owners, wardens and all staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly. The facilities are superb and clean.”

“Awesome Amazing excellent. Wayne/ Alexa/ Angela/ Graham/ Trish/ Ian thanks for making our 2022 summer holiday so special.”

“Had an absolutely incredible time, we stayed on the top field with electric hook up and the views are phenomenal from the top field I massively suggest it!
The toilets and showers are kept absolutely beautifully clean all day and night.”
