Review of Rowter Farm

Apr 12, 2015, by Danielle Fortier

This is my favourite campsite in the Peaks.  It is a really relaxed place, with basic facilities.  Don't go expecting modern solar heated wash blocks and defined pitches though.  While there are official rules, in the times we've been there, they were rather relaxed about them.  

This is a very popular campsite, so on nights like midsummer's eve it can get very busy. However, at other times, we've been there, we've practically had the place to ourselves.  

It is a working farm, and understandably, the owners spend most of their time tending to the animals.  The place is kept clean and tidy and is well maintained.  Remember to take some 50ps for the showers, as they aren't included in the price.  

Great for dogs and children, as there is a large area for them to play in.  Fires are permitted, as long as they are off the ground and safe.
