We visited Wood Farm for a few days mid week. It is a wonderful place. A former farm, the site is great. The fields are very well presented, the toilets are extremely clean and well looked after and the location is wonderful.

As it says in the write up, there are woodland walks, ancient burials and beautiful views. Nick has planted well over 50 thousand trees on the land and has mown paths around these areas for lovely early morning or late evening strolls.

Nick and Sue made us feel very welcome and Nick is a mine of information about the history of the site and has even collected an impressive array of finds from the various archaeological areas on the land himself. We were going to do some driving around the area, but once we arrived and set up we decided not to and spent a wonderful relaxing time doing pretty much nothing except walking our dogs around the woods.

The only slight downfall, as far as I could see, it the fact that there is only 1 gents and 1 ladies toilet and shower. However, to be honest, this didn't cause us a problem as we had the whole site to ourselves. I could see this might be an issue at busier ti, es though.

This site is all that's wonderful about the British countryside. Sweeping views across rolling hills, woodland walks, hares, birds of prey.

The boys played for hours with the farm dogs and loved the friendly donkeys on the footpath to the hamlet.

It's a short walk by road or across fields to a pub and a ruined abbey and the obvious choice for Alton Towers.

The pitches are flat, the grass cut and clippings collected, with loads of space for each pitch. There are some hook up pitches.

It's quiet during the week and very busy on summer weekends. The facilities are limited but spotless, and a few porta loos about that were the cleanest I have ever seen. You just need to time your showers to avoid the rush or have a bucket wash. Probably worth a porta potti or bucket if you have a few girls.

This site is good value and cheaper than the Peak District, though not far from there. The farm shop down the road is useful for groceries wine and beer though prices are what you would expect. Major shops in Uttoxeter if needed.

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.
