We have since visited this park again as we enjoyed the first visit so much (camping). Reading through some of the recent reviews, some negative points seem to be solely down to personal preference of the camping experience, particularly comments such as the park being quite remote, very little phone reception and TV reception. We didn't mind any of these issues as we wanted to get away from it all and Longnor Wood certainly gave us this. John and the other staff are great and extremely helpful at all times. The atmosphere was laid back and we made some friends on the last occasion. The amenities are very good, especially the little things such as freezer for cool box ice packs and the microwave. Showers were always clean although make sure you take a torch for night time visits as the route is quite dark. The camping field has got a slight slope but nothing too much of a problem. There is a wood and field/meadow with fantastic views where you can take dogs for exercise. As long as you don't mind the curfew and being respectful of others after a certain point in the evening, this is a great campsite to visit. Only negative I can think of would be that you are limited on walks directly from the site and would probably need to drive a bit further afield. We are going again in Sept and highly recommend this site to others who want a peaceful getaway site.
