 I was greeted by a member of staff who was very helpful and cheerful.

The site was clean and extremely well looked after with good facilities.

The site is close to Rother Valley Country Park which is a big bonus.

Reviewer: Zorro008 3 reviews from this member

 This site is easy to book online and provides some level of camping or caravanning for every age group.

Access is by a barrier which should be ANPR but at present you need to key in the code sent in booking confirmation.

Staff are efficient and polite and helpful in the reception/cafe/shop. Facilities are fabulous and clean and spacious.

The site is undulating and on top of a hill but each caravan pitch is practically level due to careful landscaping. Hard standing is white limestone gravel on top of coal slag. Variety of pitches to suit all.

The pitches are a good size and well spaced and some have spectacular views over Rother Valley or all the way west to Pennines.

Access to country park is easy by car but one has to pay car parking, or by foot down a gentle sloping track at rear (north side) of site or by mountain bike more or less straight down hillside.

Access to local area and motorways by road is easy and makes this either an ideal place to stay to relax or as a stopover when going up or down or across the UK.

 This was our second trip to Waleswood (earlier review in October 2020) where this time we spent 5 nights over the Easter weekend.

We were only able to book a standard pitch which was adequate in size but would have been very hard to reverse onto without a motor mover, indeed we had to help the people on the pitch next door push their van as they couldn't reverse on due to the narrow width of the access road.

The facilities continue to be superb and are kept very clean. Waleswood remains one of our favourite sites.

 Stayed this Easter week at Waleswood, been a couple times before and really love the site.

Pitches are large and well placed and level. Good dog walk and easy access to Rother Valley Park.

Cafe, Bar area clean and well use, good IPA on tap at reasonably price. Kids park, but over 10s struggle.

Toilet blocks spotless and good showers family bathrooms and disables facilities.

Went to Rother Valley Country Park, and once again on a visit, loads that could be open was closed, and nothing to do with the site itself.

Went to Clifton Park Rotherham, and wow what a great ime, and good prices, a credit to the people of Rotherham.

Overall a great week and we will return again.

 Lovely site - went here for the day in the summer.

However today - I decided to go off in the campervan and they have a policy that they cannot accept bookings on the day!

The guy I spoke to said they were half full - but couldn't accept my booking - as policy! how daft

 We actually stayed here twice within a fortnight, once heading north and once heading south.

Run by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and staffed by very friendly and helpful people, this large, fairly new site is strangely sparse, bare and characterless, with little landscaping, but it has the most superb facilities that I’ve come across anywhere.

Every aspect has been extremely well thought-out and designed and built to a very high standard. The two large and airy toilet blocks are always spotlessly clean and have plenty of spacious shower cubicles.

The reception and café building includes a small shop for basics and a bar serving a range of snacks and alcoholic drinks. It opens out onto a patio area overlooking an attractive stretch of the Rother Valley and the country park.

Plenty of wildfowl can be seen and heard and we saw a kestrel flying over the nearby trees and meadow.

The motorhome service point was well laid out, clean and odourless.

An ideal place to stay for an overnight stop when on the move, being fairly near the motorway, but I wouldn’t want to spend too long here until more hedges are planted and the site matures somewhat.

In addition, there’s constant background noise from nearby roads and the motorway, which is a great shame.

 The site is lovely, well laid out. Shower blocks are spotless and spacious.

The shop only sells essentials, but not bread, bacon etc as that would do them out of the £3 per bacon butty that they sell in the cafe!

For mid September I think £26 a night is too much, but as I didn’t tell them about the dog or extra person I saved a few quid as they do not come round checking.

Great walks straight into Rother valley, but go a few miles to Treetwell dyke where there are better walks and less crowds, plus you can swim there as the water is cleaner.
