"Just returned from a fabulous 3 night stay at Manor Grounds. This is exactly what a CS should be. Great peaceful location surrounded by trees, lovely pub less than 5 minutes walk away (and downhill on the way home). Nice spacious pitches on the edge of the field which has plenty of room for playing and relaxing. Children and adults were fascinated by the deer in the next field. Thanks to Jane & Phil for the lovely welcome - they were great hosts, friendly and helpful but not intrusive. We will definitely be back.”

Well maintained grass on well drained site. Water and grey waste. Good security. Nice food at Crown Inn just 5 min walk. We loved it and will be back.

We bought our motorhome 4 months ago and due to Covid this is the first time we've been away in her. We deliberately wanted a small site, so we could play around with the van and get used to her. This site did not disappoint, lovely and quiet, just what we were after. Five minute walk to a pub, but we stayed onsite to chill and drink at the van. We had a hardstanding pitch, which was level, with electric, water and grey waste. Onsite there was a toilet emptying facility, as well as rubbish disposal and recycling. We met and had a good natter with the the owner Jane, who was lovely. Really lovely small site, especially ideal for those of you who are visiting Alton Towers as it's about 10 minutes drive away. Would most definitely recommend!

stayed here for 11 nights as was working in the area. Was prefect. Really friendly welcome and throughout stay. Fully serviced pitches which makes your stay even easier! and toilet waste very close. Rubbish bins and recycling available. Pub 2min walk up the hill which does decent food. Can't fault this site at all... ...will be staying again when back in the area. Thank you

Ideal stop over or base to explore south Dales and surrounding countryside. Loved having my own tap within hose reach of van 🙂 Village pub nearby, plus Alton Towers etc. Easy access into site though, as always, follow owners directions - they know better than google maps or waze!

Lovely little site with beautiful peaceful surrounding close to local amenities and a short drive to alton towers. Jane was so helpful, friendly and courteous. Will definitely be back. A great place to camp should you only require minimal facilities

We really liked Manor Grounds Campsite. It’s well maintained (with good-sized pitches), private and on the edge of a lovely village, Marston Montgomery. There’s a very nice pub, The Crown, about 5 minutes walk away. During our weekend we visited the Shugborough Estate and Bolsover castle, which were easy to get to from Manor Grounds. We wouldn’t hesitate to visit again. Highly recommended.

What a brilliant site. We had a lovely peaceful break. The site was lovely and the owners very thoughtful with sanitizer for use to use. Would recommend this site and would come back again.

Really pleased we managed to get 6 days at this lovley site, great size pitches, was beginning to think we wouldn’t get away as everyone was fully booked as sites began to open after lockdown but UKCampsite saved the day with 2 in the area we were looking for. Pub up the road with social distances in place and serving takeaway meals, Lovely farm shop a couple of miles away at Denton and a nice short walk round a lake at jcb headquarters a couple of miles away
