What a beautiful site! almost don't want to leave a review because I would like to keep it for myself.

Just spent Easter at Longnor Wood- a last minute booking (and I was surprised I could get in) but I was so delighted when I arrived and overwhelmed by the outstanding beauty of the setting, absolutely stunning scenery and only an hour or so drive from home.

Approach road from Longnor itself was a little bit scary, but only because I didn't know the area. (don't let sat nav guide you to this site). It is a little remote but not too far from any local services and supermarkets etc. The approach to the site is via a single lane with passing places then heading up a steep hill to the site entrance.

We were very welcomed upon arrival and guided to our pitch and set up very quickly. We were given a guided tour o the facilities and advised to call at reception if further help needed.

The weather was very temperamental, but if you let the weather stop you doing anything or going anywhere you would never go out. I think we experienced every type of weather possible that weekend, but it was fun.

Toilet block kept very clean and tidy, easily accessible. Putting green, boules area and badminton on site. Small tourist information hut. Small shop selling fresh eggs and the basics on site also.

We had 2 dogs with us and they had a wonderful time to. A meadow at the entranced served as a dog area and the dogs loved especially with the bunnies everywhere.

We visited buxton and Hartington whilst there. We also spent time in 'Poole's' cavern (highly recommended)

Overall had a fantastic weekend even though the weather was poor. The site was one of the best I have been to, why I have never been before I do not know. A definite return visit will be planned

Stayed for a weekend break during November, the weather was not the best which made the ground around the pitch quite soft, the pitch would probably benefit if it was more hardstanding with less grass, our pitch had water and electric but no waste. Upon arrival we were met by the wardens who where very helpful and cheerful, the male warden showed us to our pitch and explained what was around and about. The shower block was clean and tidy with plenty of hot water and was not one of those dreadful push buttons, the site offered free wifi in reception but was 7. 50 for 3 days if required. The only disappointment was that as you enter the site you drive through beautiful scenery but when pitched up there are no views what so ever, great shame!

We had a lovely welcome and was shown to our pitch, which was on a slight slope; easily sorted by our ramps. We were on pitch 19 close to the modern, clean toilet block; which was not a problem as the site is adult only (peace and quiet) and very well run.

There's an information hut with sports equipment (badminton, golf putting clubs and boules)shelf of books and video CDs. The shop is within the reception area and all the staff are friendly and helpful.

The site is great for walking and we walked to Buxton and bused it back to Longnor. Whilst mentioning Longnor I should make an important comment on the 'Ye Old Cheshire Cheese Inn', who, if you telephone them will pick you up from the site; we though walked to the pub (not along an over busy road) distance 1. 6mls to a fab Sunday lunch; their staff are very amenable and it has a great atmosphere. The camp site, pub and area in general is highly recommended. WE intend to return!

Better late than never, we submitted this review in Jan 2015.

We stayed at Longnor Wood for our second time, again to coincide with the Annual Buxton Carnival and Fringe. Again we were made to feel at home by the site owners and the wardens, they really are such very nice friendly helpful people, they always have time for a chat.

With the site being so highly manicured and cared for there really aren't any faults to find. The pitches are spacious and well appointed and the surrounding area is just a joy to relax in. Again we toured the whole area and revisited places from our previous visit (see our review dated July 2013).

we really can't praise Longnor Wood enough and booked for 2015 before we left, such is our love for the site and area.

Reviewer: Cbrpilot 13 reviews from this member

Yet another stay at one of our favourite sites, seventeen nights this time. Yet again the owners and staff have worked through the winter months to make even more improvements to what we think is a site that can't get any better. This site offers peace, tranquillity, wildlife and a friendly welcome, the reason why we keep going back. The team here work so hard to keep the toilets and showers clean, just a shame that some campers are either too bone idle or proud to clean up after themselves.

This year we visited :-

Chatsworth House - THE iconic stately home.

Sudbury Hall - one the country's finest Grade 1 listed Restoration mansions.

Dovedale - a beautiful river cut valley.

Bakewell - just a lovely market town to explore and spend the day in.

Ashford in the Water - on the River Wye. We have never seen so many BIG wild Rainbow Trout at Sheepwash Bridge. A lovely little village to walk around and the Steak night is not to be missed at The Ashford Arms, great food and real ale.

Gawsworth Hall - we went to two shows at this Tudor house, which is absolutely stunning. Top Tip- get there early, taking a cushion to place on the seat of your choice in the stand and then go picnic on the lawns next to the lake, then tour the house. Check out future shows on their website.

Buxton - lovely to walk in the Victorian Pavillion gardens.

We also clocked up nearly seven hundred miles touring the Peak district including the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, Masson Mill and the Trafford Shopping Centre.

We also took advantage of the free 'pick up and return' service offered the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese pub in Longnor village. Did so on Steak night, very nice.

Naturally we have already booked for next year, though we might spend a long weekend before the end of the year in one of the many beautiful lodges en site, each with their own hot tub.

We arrived on Saturday without booking for one night. Luckily there was a plot available. Lovely site. Clean, peaceful and has a lovely wood to walk the dogs in

The manager was very friendly and helpful.

The pitch had its own water tap, toilets were spotless, nice eggs for sale.

A gem of a site and I feel at 27. 00 good value considering the quality of the site.

We will definitely be returning

Just come back from here.


Wow, fantastic setting, amazing views.

Toilet and shower facilities first class, piping hot water on demand. Little stools for you to pop all your bits and bobs on during showers. Very very clean.

Shop sells basic items but as we did go 'out of season' didn't expect it to stock everything.

Grounds are well kept despite the weather trying to undo the christmas decs that were still up (and were gorgeous).

Lots of rabbits, squirrels, and birds to see, most very tame and came right up to the caravan.

Roads in and out are single file, but the park makes allowances for this by having passing lanes and also making sure check- in/out times are different and well spaced out.

Pitches large and fairly level, with grass either side of the hard standing.

We chose a serviced pitch that had dedicated water and grey waste allocated to it.

It cost just 2. 00 extra per day and was well worth it.

We were a bit concerned about the rabbits etc. , but our dogs just loved sitting outside and watching the day go by and became spectators rather than wanting to chase the wildlife.

Our dogs were never let off the dog lead but were still very relaxed the whole visit. Lots of poop bins.

The wardens are very well informed regarding local pubs and walks and they have arranged for a local pub (the old cheshire cheese) to pick up and return customers from this camp site.

We had sunday dinner here which was reasonable priced and delicious. We didn't opt for the lift back as we have two dogs that love walking as much as we do.

Mobile phone reception for us was fine too.


I really don't think there is any except if you like your telly and don't have satellite tv, then the tv reception is terrible.

But take some dvds, some nice food and wine/beer and you will be in heaven in this park.

This adult only site is about 1. 5 from Longnor village, the approach is by a single track road with passing places. The entrance into the site is a very steep short section of road and can catch you out when you 1st arrive, you then have a short drive into the site. This section of road gives some magnificent views over the country side.

Ideal base for touring this area, Buxton & Bakewell only a short drive away. If you want peace and quite this is the place to visit.

The wardens are very helpful and friendly, it was raining cats & dogs when we arrived but this didn't stop the duty warden coming out to direct and help me onto the pitch, both of us got drenched.

The pitches are all hardstanding some have a slight slope, a leveller might be needed depending on what type of unit you have, they have electric hook up - water tap - grey waste water disposal drain.

There is an information hut, dish washing (under cover) and small laundry in recepton.

For the more energetic there is babminton, a small pitch & put & boules pitch.

Reception has a small shop selling basic items, (anything they don't stock you can get in the village. )

The toilet/shower block are of a very high standard kept very clean and warm.

Although it rained during our stay we still managed to get out and about, a must visit is to Hartington a lovely village which has a cheese shop - we had to visit twice as 1st lot of cheese soon went.

In the village the Cheshire cheese pub does very good food at a reasonable price, a plus is that they will come and pick you up and then bring you back at the end of the evening. (not open on Mondays) there's also a fish & chip shop & a craft centre (which does lovely lunches etc).

We have been 3 times now to this site. It is very peaceful, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The views are superb of countryside and the small but well stocked site shop has all the essentials you might need. Showers and toilets are very nice and clean. The whole site is well maintained and they have games you can use such as bowls, large field darts etc. They even let my sister and brother inlaw pitch next to us in their tent so we can be together. The site is a little expensive but it has no negative points at all and we will certainly be going this year.

This site was a breath of fresh air (literally)compared to the site we had come from in Northumberland. We were late arriving but the staff were friendly and welcoming. The pitch was huge and the facilities lovely and clean despite the fact that it was a Saturday night and raining. The dog walking area is huge and the views are stunning with seating areas provided and plenty of dog poo disposal bins. The village is a mile or so away but we were told that the local pub do a collect and return service for those people who would like to enjoy a drink and it is dog friendly and the service included taking the dog. Rabbits run freely around the site which never ceased to be entertaining and the wardens were friendly and helpful whenever we saw them.

What can I say, we were sad to leave and will definitely be going back.
