/ Your favourite campsite for Eastern Grit?
Would prefer somewhere quiet without lots of rowdy groups with TV's, fridges, kitchen sink etc. and a shower is a must or I'll be climbing without a partner!
The quietest campsite would be northlees and it does have showers and you can walk to stannage from there
Haven't camped for ages due to having a van now, but I remember Hardhurst farm was nice, and near a pub. North Lees brings back memories of camping on a swamp. Walkable to Stanage though, if that's a deciding factor for you.
Hardhurst farm has possibly the best breakfast in the peak district, fried derbyshire oatcake anyone?
My favourite was Eric Byne as it tends to still be pretty quiet even in summer although no showers.
