Review of Rowter Farm

Jul 7, 2014, by DerbyshireSidney

Have just come back from a 3 night break at Rowter Farm and we couldn't have picked a better site for views, walking and dog friendly camping. No charge for the dogs which was nice and plenty of animals surrounding the field to look at (horses, sheep, cows etc) Stunning views to wake up to and some lovely walks especially Mam Tor. Campsite is literally at the top of winnats pass so it's high up. The field was empty when we arrived on the Friday afternoon so had the pick of the field to pitch however it soon filled up with a variety of families, DofE groups and walking groups but by the end of the weekend only a couple of tents left and deadly quiet. One night it was like Leeds festival and the next all we could hear were the cows in the next field. It's a bit of a gamble which end of the spectrum you get but it's worth it. Showers are clean and so are the toilets and wash up room. The farm house sells basic provisions, portable BBQ's, chocolate biccies. The owners appear very relaxed and leave you too it and the field is on the level. No naff family lounge bars or cheesy amusements - proper camping at it's best!
