Longnor Wood Caravan & Camping is a five-star, adults only holiday retreat in the heart of the Peak District National Park. The park offers an ideal location for adults looking to get away from it all and relax in the tranquil surroundings of the Peak District.

A range of accommodation options are available at Longnor Wood Caravan & Camping. The park's holiday lodges have one or two bedrooms, and all lodges have their own exclusive, outdoor, covered hot tubs, perfect for enjoying some rest and relaxation during a stay at the site.

Alternatively, Longnor Wood Caravan & Camping has 47 hardstanding pitches.

There is plenty to do on-site for guests looking to enjoy the surroundings of the Peak District without having to venture away from Longnor Wood Caravan & Camping. This is a dog friendly campsite and anyone taking their dog on holiday with them will find a lovely four-acre dog walking area. Owners are reminded to clean up after their dogs and to keep them under control at all times. Other activities provided on-site include a putting green, badminton courts and a boules court. Picnic benches are situated around the park for those simply looking to relax or maybe enjoy an al fresco bite to eat.

The village of Longnor itself is about a five-minute drive from this park and it's a handy place to have so nearby. There's a fish and chip shop, some pubs, a post office and some shops, so you can top up on everyday supplies when you are self catering.

All of the best walking and cycling routes of the Peak District are accessible from Longnor Wood Caravan & Camping, while for thrill seekers the Alton Towers theme park is about a half hour drive away.

A lovely quiet setting with good facilities and a warm welcome. Unfortunately the full service pitches were only accessible across grass which was waterlogged and churned with mud. The tourer caravan site needs some TLC just to give it that extra sparkle.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of your visit to our park. Unfortunately given the appalling weather conditions and understandable difficulty some customer without four wheel drive have in these conditions, an element of damage to the front of pitches is inevitable. During the parks shut down (10th January to 1st March) the park will receive a £30,000 investment in a refurbishment to its reception, resurfacing of every pitch, renewal of all roads serving the touring park plus hard and soft landscaping.

Longnor wood is sited a mile and a quarter from the quaint village of Longnor. The village boasts a general store, delightful tearoom and a delicious fish and chip shop. The site itself caters for tents, caravans and mobile homes and also has a number of high quality holiday homes for hire. This is an adult only site which provides a very quiet and calm environment within which to truly relax. Set in a beautiful part of the Peak District Longnor Woods provides stunning views and an idilic walks. There are several feeding stations for you to
watch birds. A nine hole putting green, boules and
badminton for the energetic
are all included in the price. The proprietors provide a warm welcome and are very attentive to every need. The facilities are first class with lots of little touches which makes this site stand out - 5 stars.

Andy, many thanks for your kind words, we are delighted you enjoyed your time with us and look forward to welcoming you again to Longnor Wood.


This is a lovely park, 1000ft up and mostly surrounded by trees. The owners Lindsey and Paul keep the site immaculate. The pitches are good sizes and the site is cleverly laid out. On arrival Lindsey really made us feel welcome. The facilities are also very clean with good showers. There is a site shop, laundry with washer, tumbler, spin dryer and ironing facilities. Also a host of games including lawn darts. You need to be a keen walker or have transport as it is almost two miles to the nearest village - although saying that it is well situated for Ashbourne, Buxton and Leek. Give it a whirl if you like peace and quiet mixed with beautiful scenery. Review submitted by Eamonn Sorohan at
