 This is our 3rd visit to The Woods, all visits being in the winter. We always pick a pitch in the lower field with the great views over the hills.

The pitches are large, level hardstanding. The staff are as friendly as ever. Our visit this month was to do a bit of Christmas shopping at the nearby Sterling Mills retail park, we walk there on the path on the disused railway line, very near to the site, about 30 minutes walk, a few nice coffee shops there also.

Our dog also loves the Walk around Gartmorn Dam.

The standard of the site is as good as ever with one of the best toilet blocks I've seen. They are constantly improving this site.

Look forward to our next visit.

 We spent 2 night on this site. The area we were in was nicely terraced, so all the pitches were level but had good views.

The pitches are very wide and spacious.

The toilet block was clean and tidy, (although I couldnít understand why there was a television installed and on all weekend!)

 Just back from our first visit to The Woods but it certainly won't be our last.

Pitches are large and well spaced. You pick your own pitch and have it nose in our nose out, depending on what view you want. We chose one facing the Ochil Hills.

The toilet/shower facilities were always immaculate.

Very handy for Stirling and lots of local walks in the Ochils.

 Just back from our second stay at The Woods. Very reasonable lovely campsite, beautiful views, spotless facilities and very friendly helpful staff.

There is a restaurant on site, but phone and book a table as it can be very busy with campers and local people.

The area for camping is very well maintained, and what a view of the Ochills. Lovely area with Stirling about a 10-15 minute drive away. We will be back. Lesley Murray.

 Another great stay at the Woods.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights with our dog in January.

The reception was friendly and welcoming at the new Reception Block. We were given the pick of pitches, we wanted a pitch on the lower field facing the hills and found a nice one that suited us. The main toilet block was the only one open which was immaculate as before and I was glad to see that the dishwashing area was open, which was not last year at the same time. The site had expanded a bit with new pitches and new lodges. The only slight downside was The toilet block was closed for about 2 hours, with no alternative but to use the one in our Motorhome. Most sites we go to leave the disabled toilet till last, leaving it available for use.

There area many nice dog walks available from the site. We walked the Devon Way, along the old railway to Dollar, where there were nice cafes and shops. This also passed the Sterling Mills Shopping Outlet at Tillicoultry. Also the wonderful Gartmorn Dam walk. We will look forward to returning to this site.

 Very pleased with this site and staff. Nice clean toilets and staff very warm and welcoming. Top of the site best for us as we don't have a dog now, if the kids were in tow we would go near play area.

Did try the Woodsman and it was very nice also The Juniper bar meals were worth the small car drive to get there top chef and bar staff. Fish and chips in box at Golden Fry Alva very nice. Will call back soon

 We booked ahead for 3 nights at The Woods, after reading the excellent reviews on this website. We knew it was predominantly a caravan/touring site, and have stayed at similar in the past. On this occasion we were the only tent so had a choice of pitches.

My husband went into the sparkling new reception building to check in and collect the car barrier access fob (I was trapped under rucksacks in the car!) and told me the reception staff were friendly, though they very much reinforced the 5mph speed limit several times so it was clearly important. We duly stuck to this throughout or stay, though many others didn't, including an employee chap driving a small vehicle and trailer to collect refuse bags around the site, which we felt set a bad example.

From entering the site, there are signs warning people to keep off the grass, which I have never seen before in a camping area, and found a little curious, especially as there were some picnic tables on the same grassed area. It made the site feel a little regimented as a first impression.

The roadways are covered in a loose, dusty grey hardcore material, and do not enhance the look of the site. I understand that a lot of building is going on (more lodges still being added) bit it did feel a little Ďmuckyí.

We elected to go to the bottom field, with the best view of the hills (beautiful!) and pitched up. We went to eat at The Woodsman restaurant which was outstanding, with excellent quality food and friendly, attentive but unobtrusive service!

We left and came back to the site around 7:45pm, where we found two Swiss couples in a motorhome desperately trying to find someone to help as they had driven from Switzerland and wanted to check in, but reception closes at 6pm, which is the earliest I have come across in many ears of camping (admittedly we donít often go to sited mainly aimed at caravanning). I felt very sorry for them.

When we returned to our tent, there were a few people walking their dogs on the tent field and it quickly became clear from talking to one gentleman that this space had once been the dog exercise area, with pathways cut into longer grass, but now all the grass was cut short so it was not clear where the tent area ended and the dog toilet began. This was a little unpleasant, even for a dog lover like me. Essentially, all the time we were at the tent, we were seeing dogsí toilet activities. It would be lovely to have a solid barrier between the areas to define them properly and make all users feel more comfortable.

The facilities block nearest to the bottom field was very clean indeed, with push button showers which are free. Personally I would have preferred not to have piped music from Heart Radio in there 24 hours a day, but I suspect Iím in a minority. There was also plenty of hot water at the washing up facility, always a plus.

All the people we met during our stay were very friendly and seemed very happy with their stay, many of them having visited the site for many years.

We spent the first full day out visiting The Kelpies (my favourite public artwork in the UK) and exploring around North Queensferry and the bridges (stunning!).

Sadly the weather forecast for the next day was for severe rain and possibly flooding in the area so we decided that evening to leave the next day and forego our third night. We packed up the next morning and left, feeling underwhelmed by our experience of the site, to visit family in Falkirk before heading home, and although itís hard to put my finger on why, I donít feel drawn to return to this site.

 My wife and I travelled to this campsite for 3 nights at the end of January. The reception was friendly and welcoming. The Reception is currently in a Portacabin and a new reception block is being built apparently due to a fire in the old one.

We checked in and were invited to select any pitch. The site is very large and we selected a pitch in the lower field with stunning views of the Ochil Hills. The pitches in general were very large, hardstanding and despite the lower field being on a slope all the pitches were level.

There were 2 toilet blocks but the one in the lower field was closed for the season. The main toilet block was very well appointed with probably the best showers I have seen. The external dish wash areas in both blocks were closed for the winter leaving only the one laundry sink for dishwashing which was inadequate. A site open all year should have a better all weather dishwashing facility. There was plenty service areas and good gravel roads around the site.

We have a dog so nearby there is the Devonside way path a disused railway, perfect and safe for walking, also Gartmorn Dam Country park which is well worth a visit. Also for more adventurous walks the Ochil Hills. A short walk along the Devonside Way takes you to Sterling Mills Outlet Village where there are numerous shops a large Costa and cafe bakery. A good well run site with stunning scenery, we will return.

 Beautiful clean site, we were lucky when we arrived that on of the pitches facing the OCHIL HILLS had just became vacant. I put the van in nose first and woke up to a fantastic view every morning.

There is a dog walk on site, to be fair it was only used at night for bedtime pee, as my Lab loves walking this was just too short, but the walks from the site along the river and cycle paths were great.

There is a restaurant at the site entrance, which we used one afternoon, where we sat outside with the dog, and as it was the wife's birthday we had a meal at night with friends who live locally, who, had never used The Restaurant. But since then have used it many times.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and they keep it clean and tidy,

We even phoned the brother in law who came up with his tent and we all stayed extra nights
