Irongorge Camping was the first site we stayed at as a family, and it was such an amazing experience. We were in the middle of moving house and needed to get away from the stress and chaos, so we borrowed a friendís tent and jumped in the car. We were totally unprepared Ė no sleeping bags (we took duvets) for example Ė and it was a bit chilly with it being at the beginning of March but it didnít matter at all.

As it was so early in the season, the campsite was really quiet. We got there early Saturday afternoon and chose to pitch right in the centre of the field, with the BEST view. You canít park on the field, but the owners provide trolleys that you can load up and then wheel to your tent, which the kids loved. There is also a cute little play area, so they were kept entertained while we tried to work out how to put up the tent.

There are fantastic fire pits that you can hire, which have been made out of old washing machine drums. There are also picnic tables and a newly-built toilet/shower block close by.

As it was March, it got dark pretty early and the kids loved the magic of the campfire and walking across the field with torches. We had a BBQ under an umbrella as it was drizzling a bit, and then settled down for the night. We could hear owls and farm animals and had a little visitor in the night (I think it was a cat!) and it was an amazing experience for all. There is nothing like spending a night under the stars to show children how awesome nature is. We banned all technology for the weekend too, which was an added bonus!

The next day we packed up leisurely and headed into nearby Ironbridge to spend the day in this lovely town. There is so much to do there, and as well as the walks that are really easily accessible from the site, Irongorge Camping is definitely somewhere you could happily spend a few days.

Thanks to Irongorge Camping for welcoming me and my little tent on a busy Bank Holiday weekend! One of the nicest campsites I've stayed at for a long time. There's a great view, and it's great that vehicles aren't allowed on - they are close, and there are big trolleys, no no-one is inconvenienced. The site itself is flat and spacious, even with lots of big tents and full it didn't feel crowded.

The facilities are good, the only slight niggle would be that there are only two hand wash basins and they are tiny. All sparkling clean. There's a popular play area next to the facilities.

The site is up quite a hill so it's worth finding the local Co-op first. Being in Ironbridge there are loads of things to do, but maybe less known is the great Town Park in Telford, only a few miles away (and mostly on cycle routes if you've bikes).

I'd like to think I'll be back here sometime to simply enjoy the place - it's that sort of campsite.

What a fantastic site! Beautiful location, friendly and helpful owners, good clean facilities and a very reasonable price. The only thing I'd like to see improved is some shelter for the washing up area; sudden gusts saw me chasing plates and bowls across the field. We'll definitely go back.

Visited for a long weekend. Initially a little concerned as our pitch was next to a large group but soon met the owner who assured us that he would ensure that the noise did not go on late into the night which fortunately it didn't. Loved the washing machine drums as fire pits, one of the reasons we chose the site. The views are incredible and no noise from any roads. Like the fact you can't drive onto the camping field so no cars but they have supplied trolleys so you can still get your kit unloaded and to your pitch without any fuss. On our last night we were fortunate to be able to meet some of the animals the owners have, pigs, chickens, lambs and puppies which was a treat! The owners are very attentive which is not something you get from a large campsite so another bonus of iron gorge camping, when we had a small downpour the owner lent us a pop up gazebo so we were still able to enjoy our last night under the stars sat by the fire. Owners also make sure that they go to every pitch and check everyone is ok, this is not something we have experienced before and made us feel very welcome on site. Facilities are immaculate, hot showers and clean toilets. No plug socket though although they have also provided a hair dryer. Washing facilities are standard but have proper taps, so no push and stop taps which are annoying when your washing your breakfast plates. We are hoping to visit for longer in the summer, definitely returning

What a fantastic find! On arrival we were made to feel very welcome and shown to a very spacious pitch. Cars are parked in the car parking area and a trolley is provided to help transport all your camping gear. A small field well maintained and flat. Wood provided for £5 for your fire pit which also came in your own little wood store, fire lighters and kindling.

Shower and toilet block is very clean and plenty of hot water in showers. A washing up area is outside with two large sinks but only one draining board- this area could do with a bin and some kind of cover.

My only problem with this site was the 3 showers with only one plug! the water from 2 showers flowed through to the third with the plug!

Dogs are made welcome but no area for exercise ( people used the kids play area).

Only a mile away from Ironbridge where there are plenty of pubs, cafes and gift shops. All museums are close by so makes an excellent base for visits. Will definitely return to this site- the road to the site is a single track and would benefit from more signage but sat nav will get you there. ( I thought my sat nav was taking me on a wild goose chase)

Lovely location, nice clean toilet block and hot water.

Helpful friendly hosts, and generous sized pitches. Couldn't ask for more from a small campsite. The fire pits and supply of wood were a bonus on chilly nights.
