 Liked the site and area so much we bought a seasonal pitch for 2022.

Close to Buxton and main cycle routes with plenty to do and superb scenery.

Site is quiet and has dog walking field

Reviewer: EribaAdventurer 4 reviews from this member


The site is very peaceful, and very remote. There aren't any views from the pitches as the site is surrounded by trees to protect it from the wind as it is on a hill (many an awning lost). Its 1. 5 miles from the nearest village, where there is 1 pub, small shop, cafe and chip shop. The walk is either by a fast road, or a slightly longer walk over fields which isn't that pleasant as its very boggy after rain, and fields are full of cattle. As the site is on a hill, its a long haul back (no buses or taxis in this neck of the woods).


There is a small shop on site in the reception. But it only opens 9 - 5 with an hour for lunch. It only has the essentials like beans and chocolate. Don't expect local produce.

Toilets and showers are clean, but the recent revamp has made them very cramped for space.

There is a dog wash which is a nice touch, but the hot water rarely works, and I don't like to wash my dogs in freezing cold water.

Phone reception is hit and miss depending on your provider. The site does have WiFi, but at an additional cost.

Dog walk - amazing! But let down by the many owners who don't pick up after their dogs (check your shoes before getting in your accommodation).

Local walks - unfortunately there are very few walks from the site. As previously mentioned, the longnor walk is more of a chore than a pleasure. The walks around the lanes from the site are OK, but they are roads at the end of the day.

Log cabins

Tourers and tents aren't that close to the log cabins so you may miss out on the fights in the hot tubs.


In this day and age you would think that campsites would be keen on Recycling. There is 1 bin for recycling, and 3 for general waste. The recycle bin fills up quick, so majority is just put in general waste.


Having toured for many years prior, I think the price is on the high side. Whilst the site is pleasant, its remoteness, lack of provisions in the shop and its short opening times would make me think twice before staying here.

I knew the location of the site so its remoteness didn't faze me, but I bumped into so many weekend campers expecting a village or pub within easy walking distance.

 The site is very peaceful, and quite remote. Not really any views from the pitches as the site is surrounded by trees but nice and secluded.

It is about 1. 5 miles from the nearest village (Longnor) and this is across fields (a lovely walk if you are equipped for walking in the Peaks eg wellies/walking boots a must) Longnor has two village a pubs, a cafe and little shops but it is a very small place.

There is a very small shop on site in the reception. It opens 9 - 5 and it has the bare essentials.

Toilets and showers are nice and kept very clean and there is a dog wash if required.

The Wi-Fi is chargeable (annoying in this day and age - a gripe with hotels and campsites generally) and phone reception is very sporadic - seemingly for most providers ( we have EE and Virgin/O2)

The dog walk/ field is one of the best - large, secure and lovely views. Our greyhound loved it.

We thought the price was on the high side. However they do keep the site very well maintained and the people running the site were helpful and friendly (didnít see that much of them as it was in Covid still) the site is very pleasant, but it is a little bit too remote for us. Saying that we are walkers and had some lovely long walks from the site and had a day out to do Ludís Church and the Roaches.

But if you want easy access or short walks there arenít any really. We did know this as we had checked all that out before we booked.

So all good but I feel we have done that area now and the pull of just the site wasnít enough to make us want to go back immediately. But I am sure we may do at some point and would recommend it for the reasons we went: adults only, secure dog field, quiet, an area we wanted to visit.

 We Stayed Here for 4nights and thought the park was quiet & Tranquil as promised.

We were personally shown to our Hardstanding Service Pitch where we were given a brief description of the Facilities and advice Local Places to eat and explore.

All staff were friendly and helpful

Good access to dog field.

Would have like a Disabled Shower Room & Toilet this would have been a bonus

 Very impressed with the friendly reception that we received on arrival.

Our fully serviced pitch was spacious. The toilet block was immaculate and spacious.

The site was very clean and tidy. A very peaceful and pleasurable site.

 Enjoyed a long weekend at Longnor Wood (Adults only)

We received a warm welcome from staff and were shown to our pitch. The site itself is very well kept, clean and tidy. The showers and toilets were clean and very warm

There is a very large field for dog walking and a doggie shower, with warm water, which we used each day

The campsite is approximately a mile from the village of Longnor which is an easy walk along the road

There was a nice pub, tea rooms and a chip shop open on Saturday lunchtime when we visited

I would certainly recommend this campsite as there was nothing we disliked

 We stayed here fifteen years ago, and with massive investment its moved on massively. The location for us was fine, with Buxton 20 min drive away. The toilet area is spotless, not many toilets or showers but with a lot off self contained plots ie pods and chalets it was not a issue. Nearly every plot is hard standing so not so tent friendly and we felt we were positioned tucked away in the corner, which was fine by us. No kids, nice and quiet so we were happy. Just felt that in a couple of years there will be no tents allowed which would be a shame.

 Nice site in rural area with lovely views from outside the actual site. Staff helpful and friendly. Great service provided to nearby pubs. Toilet block very clean and good showers. Easy to travel to lovely Bakewell and other places. However, went there as it is an adult only site and for the peace and quiet, but sadly and annoyingly it was disturbed by 3 sets of selfish neighbours who had dogs continually barking! What a shame! Owners really should discourage this as it would otherwise be a pretty perfect site.

 Its a good site, but water don't drain away properly in showers so the changing area always has a wet floor. They charge too much for Broadband unless you are on pitch 17 which is next to the office so you can use theirs for free. Great dog walking area with fantastic views - much better than those from the site itself. But oh - how Longnor has gone downhill. 4 pubs and only one open and that had a temporary landlord. The ale was not good. Try instead The Pack Horse at Crowdicote another mile out of Longnor, friendly, good home cooked food, good ale.

There is another local pub, the Winking Man at Upper Hulme, which picks up and takes campers from the campsite for a meal and food but dogs are not allowed and 70% of campers have dogs. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Honestly I use the other Adults Only campsite Cloverfields at Harpur Hill, A few miles away.

 Spent 1 week here from 10th until 17th July 2016 in a tent on the camping field.

On arrival we were met by a lovely member of staff who showed us a choice of 2 pitches, one behind an hard standing on the caravan side and one on the camping pitch, we initially choose the caravan side but was way too small for our tent so had the camping field pitch instead.

We were asked not to pitch on the previous tents pitch area because it needed drying out, bearing in mind that these pitches are only 6x6m, we pitched half on and half off. We were right up to the next pitch, leaving no space for the car, saying that even with being pitched over the previous tents pitching there would of ben very little room for the car.

The pitch itself was very slopey and we had to use cardboard under furniture etc to get a level which was very annoying. You also felt sea sick at times it was that bad.

The camping field was unlit at night which meant torches are a must unlike the caravan side, I would advice using lights near guy ropes too for passers by.

The on site shop closed at 5pm and only sold a very small amount of goods, the washer and dryer is located in the reception area so you could only use it up until 3:30 pm allowing for the cycle to finish which was unacceptable for such a large site.

There is 3 male showers, 3 toilets, 2 urinals and 2 sinks in the gents area, the so called privacy rooms were impossible to wash in, the sinks were only hand washing sinks, the info states you can wash in them in privacy. Showers cubicles could do with being larger, easy to get dry cloths wet. Only having 2 sinks made washing difficult and the 2 urinals too close together. The cleaning of the area could of been a lot better, very smelly of stale urine.

The pitches are too close together and the field in my opinion is too small for 13 pitches.

We would not stop on this site again nor would we recommend it to other campers (this review only on camping not caravanning).
