This is our favourite campsite yet! Everything about the site was brilliant and we will definitely be making a return trip.

It was a bit of a last-minute decision to go camping, and I was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of owners Nick and Sue Brandrick from the very start. There are no card facilities on site, but I was assured that my phone booking was enough to secure my pitch.

The site is approached by a long drive past roaming farm animals, with beautiful views on all sides. We were met outside the reception by Nick and Sue, and immediately felt really welcome. They went out of their way to show us all the facilities – immaculately clean showers and toilets, a dishwashing area, recycling and rubbish bins – and then personally showed us to our pitch. We were in the second field, which seemed to be reserved for families. There was a separate field with electric hook-ups, and another third area.

My hubby and I went about setting up camp while the kids climbed trees and built dens in the nearby wood. There were plenty of other children about too, and a really lovely, friendly atmosphere. The view from our tent was beautiful, and we were blessed with two awesome sunsets when we were there. Other than the ground being a bit hard in places – take a mallet! – it was pretty much perfect.

We were joined on the second evening by friends, and Nick and Sue had gone out of their way to reserve us a pitch big enough for both families. We hired a fire pit, and thanks to the brilliant weather were able to really enjoy the ‘proper’ camping experience of toasting marshmallows round the fire after a few games of Frisbee and cricket nearby.

On Saturday nights Nick and Sue put on free entertainment in a huge barn by reception. We popped along to see what was happening and watched a bit of a kids’ movie on a big screen before heading back to the tents. Karaoke started not long after, but the kids were getting tired so we gave it a miss. We could hear people singing from our tents, but it wasn’t too disturbing (and was actually quite amusing at times) and it was all quiet by about 11. 30pm. The noise certainly didn’t affect our enjoyment.

Overall, Wood Farm is a brilliant place to spend a weekend. There are loads of attractions within driving distance (Alton Towers, National Trust sites etc) as well as plenty of walks through the nearby woods. I cannot fault the hospitality of Nick and Sue (I was so impressed that Sue remembered my name!), and the facilities were brilliant. We can’t wait to go back there :)

We have recently been on a weekend camping trip to Wood Farm. The location of the site is lovely, offering excellent views over the valleys. It is a very big site with a few separate camping fields, therefore there is plenty of space. Very convenient location for visiting Alton Towers, Croxden Abbey (2 miles away), and many more lovely places.

The washing facilities were very clean and pleasant, however quite limited. There was only one male and one female separate shower, toilet and sink available. It was a busy weekend when we stayed and there was some waiting around for showers and to use the toilet in the morning. The wash room was not very big either, so there was a bit of dodging about with other people when trying to use the one sink! The site would greatly benefit from having more facilities, and some shelves to put your toiletries on when having a wash.

On the first night there were unfortunately some noisy campers shouting and screaming in the middle of the night, which we were not too pleased about. Also, an inconsiderate camper playing loud music! This of course was not the fault of the campsite, however it may be beneficial for the owners to keep a look out for noisy campers!

Excellent site has everything, views, tranquillity and fantastic owners will be returning as often as possible. Also surrounding area is full of places to visit especially if you have a dog, loads of walks and country side to explore

Whats to say, this is by far one of the best sites I have stayed on, always helpful, accommodating, friendly etc - they should bring the CC wardens here to train them! excellent value for money and basically an absolute treasure of a find for us. Regular visits for sure.

My four year old son has been asking me for months if we can go camping, I have never camped before, never lit a fire or cooked on a bbq before. (not sure how I got to 35 and never done any of them). So after months of saying NO! I got fed up of spending every weekend talking to my son through the laptop or fighting with him to get off the sofa and put the electronics down and go out play. I read through some reviews and found Wood Farm, its only 15 minutes from our home, so I thought we'd give it ago. Being 15 minutes from home, if the worst comes to the worst, we could jump back in the car and come home.

When driving up the track to get into wood farm, my first word was WOW! There were cows and sheep everywhere. Over the cattle gate and onto the farm, we were met by Sue, She showed us around the main farm area, where there is a washing pots area (with washing up liquid and bowls) a little outhouse area with numerous leaflets for things to do and take away menus (that deliver to the farm). And a shower room and toilet, that was on par with a shower from a hotel.

Then Sue walked us up, and we drove, passed the barn, some chickens, passed 2 bulls, and a little duck pond that as newts and tadpoles in, up to a field were we could pitch our tent. The field had the most amazing views in every direction and we weren't packed in, there were plenty of people in the field but there was plenty of space between us.

Sue left us to pitch the tent and about 20-30 minutes later Nick drove up to check we were okay and if we need any help, and also dropped us off a big bag of logs for the fire.

Once you have got your tent up there are numerous woodland walks, from 20 minutes long to 45 minutes, that go all around the farm woods and are really safe, and you cant get lost but lots of fun for any adventurous little monkey and for the adults one of the longer walks takes you down to some roman(?) ruins, which are fascinating. Also 5 minutes in a car down the road there is Croxden Abbey, which is also full of history and nice to walk around.

Every Saturday night, Nick as kitted out the barn into a disco area, were you can sing and dance your little socks off, and you can take in your own drink. Plus if you get a rainy day, Nick and Sue will open it up and there is a massive screen in like the pictures, and they will put on a movie of your choice, while you get comfy on the sofas and chill out.

Wood Farm is also 10-15 minutes drive from Alton Towers, and there is a lovely country pub 5 mins down the road. Nick even asked if we were going Alton Towers as he would drive us there and pick us up to save on parking, and if we wanted to go down to the country he would pick us up so we could leave the car at the farm and have a drink.

All in the word that my son and myself used to describe Wood Farm most over the weekend was AMAZING!

And the owner Nick and Sue, you can tell they really enjoy having campers stay at there farm, and they will go the extra mile for there guests to ensure they have a fantastic time.

And not forgetting Poppy and Dodge, the farm dogs absolutely lovely dogs that just want you to play with them and will walk all around the farm with you, but do not get in your way.

We would certainly recommend Wood Farm to everyone, we arrived on the 8th -10th July 16. Just Me and my son, And had a better time here paying £5 each per night, than we have going to other well know holiday parks and pay £200. We will definitely be returning very soon, my son is already packing for this weekend.

A massive thank you to Nick and Sue, you really made our first camping trip a very enjoyable and memorable one, with your fantastic customer service and gorgeous farm.

We have just returned from four lovely days at this great Campsite, with its wonderful views and great owners Nick and Sue who do everything they can to make your stay special its a great place to be, very peaceful, excellent showers and toilets that are always spotlessly clean and warm, wonderful woodland walks, very friendly farm dogs who love to play. Its very close to the lovely old ruins of Croxden Abbey and the Raddle Inn where you can get an excellent meal and for those who want to visit Alton Towers again only a short journey away. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay there sitting in our Campervan first thing in the morning watching the many birds and squirrel, s hunting for their breakfast wonderful, one of the nicest Campsites we, ve been to. We hope to return. We did, nt have any children with us but feel that they would be made very welcome.
