Reviews of Packhorse Farm Campsite

Stunning little campsite, very quiet. By far the best toilets/shower facility i've ever been in. Statics and camper homes on a seperate area to tents which i thought was great. 5 mins drive into Matlock and about 10 mins into Matlock Bath, Lovely area and Heights of Abraham is a nice place to visit. Only 2 VERY minor grumbles, you will need a gps to find site but after the 1st day it became 2nd nature and even found shortcuts and the other is, at the time of our visit(s) in 2011 they only had limited electrical outlets. BUT!! the owners said if we needed anything charging they would be glad to do it in the house for free. Personally when camping we camp rough no electronic gadgets. 10x10 and will DEFO go there again.
