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).

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.

This was our first time camping. With a dog. So a little nervous especially as we were arriving on Friday 13th! however we had a great time.

When booking the campsite I spoke with the owner on the phone and I knew straight away we were going to love the site. The owner was really friendly, full of information and generally welcoming.

The owner and his family were fabulous. The site had everything from a microwave, washing up facilities, washing machine and dryer, toilets and showers - all very clean.

There was also a little hut with tourist information leaflets, walks and lots of other information. Also available were badminton, boules and mini golf.

The site hosts a number of wild rabbits!

Our dog decided to have a little accident on our double sleeping bag. John and the team were fabulous. Washing machine came in very handy at £2 per use with a washing tablet at 40 pence. Bargain!

Poppy (our dog) thoroughly enjoyed the meadow at the side of the campsite. Fabulous views.

Visited the Cheshire Cheese pub in the village. The pub can either come and pick you up and drop you back off at the campsite or you can walk to the village approx 1. 5 miles and then the pub will drop you back off at the campsite! excellent.

Overall a great site. Everyone very friendly.

Just returned home from a weekend stay at Longnor wood, our 1st visit to this site.

This is a lovely site to stay on and well worth a visit, benefitting from really friendly and helpful staff, large pitche's with ehu etc, ultra clean, modern toilet / shower block, the site it's self is spotlessly clean and well maintained, there's an outdoor seating/picnic area and small 9 hole putting green and it's a dog friendly too

The site is situated in the peak district and has wonderful views of the rolling hillside's, you can opt to pitch up in a tent, or as we did, in a touring caravan but if camping isn't your thing you can hire one of the sites lodges complete with hot tub, also, as and when available, you can take a seasonal pitch.

one word of advice though, don't relay too much on your sat' nav' as you approach the site, it will send you the wrong way, if you provide your mobile number the site owners will txt you directions if required.

Any visitor's to Longnor wood wanting pub grub could do far worse than visit THE CHESHIRE CHEESE, in Longnor village, the food here is reasonably priced with largish portions, a good range of beers etc ( unicorn was particularly good) again the staff are very friendly and helpful.

another reason to visit the Cheshire cheese is the fact that they operate a FREE pick-up and drop off service ( by arrangement) for visitors to Longnor wood.

In short then this is a well run site which we will be visiting again

Excellent well run site with a good range of facilities, everything was clean even though the site was very busy

If you want to go into the village for a drink or meal you can get a card from reception from one of the pubs that will pick you up and drop you back for free

Wish all sites were as good as this one and would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit this area.

Received a lovely warm welcome on arrival and were shown to our pitch where everything was pointed out to us.

Site is kept lovely. Everything clean and tidy. Showers fine, nice extra was the fold up chair hanging in each cubicle. Made getting dressed just a bit easier for those unable to do the usual 'one footed balance' to get trousers back on.

Dog walking field is great to let your four legged friend have a good run and is the place to be first thing in the morning if you want a chat with other campers.

Lovely 20 min walk into village which has a nice pub serving good food, couple of small shops and post office.

Yes it is up a long narrow road to get there but really worth it when you make it.

One of the few sites we would actually to back and stay again. Best of all NO children screaming and charging about on their bikes.
