if you do basic, and i mean very basic the farm campsite/field opposite The Yonderman Cafe (AKA Jellies) and virtually next door to the Three Stags Head is quite an experience. Use the cafe for breakfast and the pub for drinks - its very basic and it may or may not do meals and if it does you may / may not get a choice or even the option to eat there. They don't serve Lager.

ummm its in the middle of the Derbyshire peak district and its a field with a bog. The cafe and the campsite is popular with trail riders, but the campsite is busy if there's more than a few people on it. AFAIAC security consists of taking the keys out. I am sure there is a gate or part of a wall you can chain your bike up to or if not tie a bit of black string round your finger with the other end attached to the bike.

Worth watching the reaction after a request for 3 pints of Carling..... :laugh:

Food in the Yonderman is good value and decent grub or it was last time I dropped in (thumbs)

I think to get the "full impression" as Austin was describing, you need to be there in mid Winter, snow on the ground, and horizontal sleet on the way.....
