A great campsite, neat, tidy with generally friendly staff. Toilets are clean and shop has all the general things you'd expect. Didn't try the pub so can't comment but you're only a few miles away from Moors Valley, Snow Trax etc so a great central location. A few little quibbles, the waste water is about 18" off the ground so... More

Hello Keith, thank you for your great review which is very much appreciated. Your 'little quibbles' are also appreciated and we consider all feed back carefully. We are aware that the waste waster disposal is a little inconvenient and it is on our list of 'jobs to do'. The Elsan chemical disposal unit has been a real head scratcher. On... More

We went with a camper van ... it was a brilliant spot and everything was neat and clean. The pub has amazing food and the staff is very friendly. The only thing is you have to be there by 7(so do most campsites) as the reception closes ... we called and they were there till 7:10 when we arrived.. so... More

We recently stayed for the Easter weekend at this campsite. The location is great for walking and there is a pub on-site which is a nice bonus when the weather is not as dry or warm as you had hoped. We booked for three nights as apparently this was the minimum required, however we had three neighbours who stayed only... More

Stayed for two nights recently, second time here, we'll run site, very warm shower blocks, even the Eslan was a pleasure compared to some, :). Friendly and helpful staff and well stocked shop, electric a bit steep compared to other sites in the Forest but not the end of the world, very good walks and biking on their doorstep, enjoy,

We camped for two nights with our three young children in mid September. The welcome from staff on reception was warm and informative, pitches a reasonable size and shower facilities clean and of a good standard. The shop was well stocked and very reasonably priced. The kids loved the little play area but mostly enjoyed the beautiful surrounding area especially... More

Absolutely no facilities for dogs, no dog area poo bins etc. Was even told off when we first arrived for letting my dog off it's lead, was paranoid afterwards that the owners were watching our every move. Just one of those sites that thinks you are a number and doesn't care whether you come back.

Hi Paul Thank you very much for your positive feedback on our site, we are always delighted when our campers want to return - the best compliment of all! We do 'pitch' ourselves as a family site, so some boisterous youngsters are inevitable at times, especially in August, but we're glad it hasn't deterred you from coming as a couple... More

I was an apprehensive camper, but for our first family trip in our tent we couldn't have had a better time.
