We have just stayed at this site again with a big group. We go here every year and I can say that it is one of my favourite campsites by far. The changes that have been made are outstanding, especially the new showers by the top field. This feels like a back to basic campsite with a few better than home comforts thrown in. I would highly recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a laid back, friendly atmosphere. We have never had a bad experience. The guys who run it are really accommodating if you want to go in a particular area and there are lots of out of the way pitches for that feeling of being away from it all. Oh, and the added bonus of being 3 miles away from home obviously helps! Good job guys!

Just returned from a blissful bank holiday getaway at Inwood. I booked at the last minute as soon as I was sure the forecast was good and chose Inwood as it's only 35 mins from home, so no BH traffic woes. Friends had been before and recommended it, and we weren't disappointed.

The 'reception' area down the track on arrival looked a bit of a mess - owner's caravan and piles of wood, generator shed, portacabins etc but I was welcomed warmly, and soon understood the nature of the place - and had no more reservations. (I spoke to the chap at the end of our stay who was just putting finishing touches to a new log cabin reception which will be much nicer than the shed, and he is planning to screen off some of the other unsightly stuff too)

We picked up a bag of wood and packs of marshmallows and headed through the woods to the Big Field. We chose to camping the field rather than woods as weather was good but not warm so wanted to make best of sun and it was obviously shady & cool in the woods. The pitches in the woods looked amazing though so we'll try that next time. You could be on your own completely without even seeing neighbours there's so much space) The view from the Big Field took us by surprise, far reaching over the hills. There were only 3 other families on the whole field. Loads of space and relatively level at the top of the field, with fire pits spaced out so no-one would pitch too close. 2 taps & 2 perfectly usable (not smelly) composting loos (though my girls, 8 & 12 found them scary in the dark!) 10 min walk (or 2 mins in car) back to lovely clean poratloos and showers by reception not a problem. Could have heated water and washed up at tent but chose to drive down to reception - not an issue - and lovely hot water on tap. ) Only downside of field was a bit of motorway noise (you can't see roads or anything else!) - but you couldn't hear it in the woods, and I got used to it. )

We spent 3 days exploring the whole site, admiring bluebells and wild flowers, finding swings and picking spots to picnic and there were still tracks we didn't go down!

Took us a while to get camp fire going as logs were a bit damp but a quick nip to nearby Sainsbury's garage for firelighters and kindling sorted that for 2nd night. (Apparently you're not allowed to collect kindling in woods, but he didn't actually tell us that)

We can't wait to go back and walked round identifying spots we'd like to try next time! Can't recommend the site enough, though would like to keep it a secret! So close to home but it felt like being a million miles from anywhere! It'll be a 10/10 when they've improved the arrival area.

Visited inwoods for two days and yes the heavens opened but we still had a great time.

At first site we thought omg what's this, but then we spoke to the men and they explained where we go etc and it's great you can go any where and pitch.

My kids loved the real fires and this was why I choose this place.

We pitched near a portal loo that was very clean.

We dint try the showers and main loos as we were roughing it.

The water tap dint work near us, so that was a pain having to drive to get water.

Men were lovely and helpful

Will defo go again and try different parts to pitch next time.

Would be good with a group of tents.

Took the grandsons back to basic camping for the week-end. They thoroughly enjoyed it. Fantastic views from the top meadow. Lovely to see people camping among the trees. Well run site. Excellent toilet and shower facilities by the reception area. Others are compost toilets, surprised how clean and un smelly they were. Brought back happy memories from our own childhood. Well done to the team over the week -end. Will certainly be back next year, especially for the bush craft sessions.

I visited Inwood as a party of 3 and we had the most fantastic time. Some people have made negative comments about the reception but we found it perfect. The guy was informative and very welcoming and gave us some good recommended pictures.

As it was only three of us we decided to steer clear of the family areas and go camping under the woods. We collected the fire wood (bargain for a fiver) and within 10 minutes found the perfect spot.

The campsite is really back to basics but the toilets were impeccably clean, the grounds well kept and even the compost toilets were clean.

We visited the pub on the Saturday night at 6 and found that all the tables were booked but the garden is perfect and the food was very good. The walk is a good 40 minutes but was a perfect evening so we loved the fresh air.

I cannot recommend this place enough, we are not seasoned campers but the back to basics approach was nothing to worry about.

We just returned from a very good weekend at the Inwood Camping site. Myself and 9 other friends visited after reading the good reviews here added to the fact that it was only a short 40 minute drive for us.

The site itself is excellent for those who are looking to camp in the woods rather than pitching up in a big field. The atmosphere and feel of the site was great and we really felt like we were on our own in the woods. It's an excellent site for group and families.

The facilities were good, with Compost toilets dotted around the site and a shower and toilet block at reception, all kept very clean and toilets restocked every morning.

We only have a few complaints, the first being the site selling damp wood for camp fires, fair enough they cannot keep it all dry when it rains, but they simply shouldn't sell it for that price when it's damp.

Also during one of our nights, we were told to keep it down at 11:15, even though there were no other parties anywhere near us, and all we were doing was talking and laughing, the rather rude staff member told us to keep quiet and then told us we weren't allowed to use twigs around our tents to help burn the damp wood they sold us, and said it in such a way that we should have been aware of this, even though we weren't told this by anyone. However, this being said, the next morning we were approached by the manager that just wanted to check everything was alright and to apologise as sometimes the night staff can get a bit hot. This we appreciated and have reflected in the score we've given the site.

To finish, I would point out that at 10 per person, per night, it's a big expensive for some folk and it's even more on the bank holidays. However if the location is suitable for you, it's worth the money in our opinions. We will no doubt be returning soon.
