We have just had a fantastic long weekend at Forgewood, the site was great with a very relaxed atmosphere allowing en fires and being able to pitch up anywhere we wanted was great as we had a reasonable size group with 4 mid to large tents.

The toilet and shower facilities were not anything to shout about compared to bigger sites but their website states this and they were a lot better than we expected, with boiling hot water, decent size shower cubicles and were kept reasonably clean throughout the day.

Our kids attended the Woodwise course and loved every minute of it, returning with bread they had made and telling us all about the shelters they made, a really great experience for them! They also loved exploring the woods and swinging on the rope swings dotted around the edge of the woods.

We hired the grills available which was great as cooking for a group of 14 on them was a doddle over the open fire.

We will certainly be back again soon as we are pretty local and loved every second of our long weekend, except the packing away in the wet.

Stayed here twice already this year. I asked the kids after visiting the first time if they would like to go back or to somewhere we have been before and they chose Forgewood again. So the kids obviously like it and I must say I don't really have any grumbles. Toilets and showers are great in the main field so are the washing up facilities. Woodland pitches are great and very atmospheric. Main field pitches are a little uneven, but hey its camping. My only niggle is that I would like to see the grass cut in the field. Its the main playing area and the grass is knee high on kids so energy sapping and not inviting to play. Also it gets quite damp in the evening. It may be they are not allowed to cut it?? The woods a re great for playing with a number of dens and rope swings around the edge of the field. Kids did the bushcraft course and loved it.

A great campsite, but they are charging way too much, 2 adults and 2 children at 42 a night. Last year was 30 which seemed a lot but ok. 2014 prices are just silly, by the time you add logs and such to the bill, the price is just too much. If I went on my own, in the same tent, it would cost me 15

A shame, but I doubt we will be going back.

We spent Easter at this site and it was fairly busy so we opted for the lower field. My brother and his daughter also joined us and it was great to be able to cook on an open fire. There is a policy on site of not gathering firewood from the woods but many people seemed to be ignoring this which I found rather poor and selfish.

There were only portaloos in the lower fields while the main facilities are excellent. We thought that the showers would be busy but this didn't seem to be the case.

We live in the north of England and picked this site based on reviews and location so that family members living in the south could visit. We had previously used another site not far away and that was truly awful.

Camped here with family, two tents, gazebo, two cars, chose the lower field backing onto the woods as thought being in the woods would be too dark on such a sunny weekend. We all loved it. It was busy but not crowded, there were reserved spots but ths did not stop us finding a good one. The main shower block was clean, showers were cold at peak times, but Monday AM when weekenders went they were superb. Portaloos were what they are, as other reviewers have said they were cleaned by staff, left dirty by campers. Having a fire was great, hired a grill. Loads of woods for the kids to run in, the walk to the ice caves was good, when we got there we had them and the surrounding area to ourselves. Reception well stocked, staff superbly helpful. Did not use the restaurant or the bushcraft sessions. A great time in a great site in a lovely location.
