Having packed up the car for the weekend with all of the gear and drove to Holmsfirth from Derbyshire we arrived around 2.30pm to find a teeming campsite with absolutely no space left for us to pitch up. We had already paid online reading all about the lovely small and quiet campsite - we could not believe our eyes! We were directed by the reception staff (who were lovely and this review is in no way a reflection of the staff, who were polite , friendly and welcoming) and when we drove into the field it was literally tent to tent, massively over-crowded, not a chance we could have squeezed our tent in let alone park in there too. Kids were running around everywhere, dogs off leads, absolutely no organisation with parking and pitching whatsoever - a complete free for all. I’m not sure if this was because of the loose layout, or that others hadn’t been mindful, or just simple over booking but something needs to change at this site if it is popular. We miserably drove all the way back home and gave it up as a bad job. I’m just so glad we didn’t have kids because they would have been utterly disappointed. If you are going to advertise a small quiet campsite, you must deliver on this. If we wanted Glastonbury we would have booked Glastonbury. Sorry, we won’t be back to try again.
