great stay

great 4 day stay, site is immaculate, staff are really lovely and helpful. a lot of the pitches seem bigger than most which is nice. Only gave score of three for "peace and quiet" because we were at the bottom of the site near the road, got used to it after a bit, and it was a lovely grassy pitch, plenty of room for the dog.

Blackshaw Moor

Good base for the western edges of the Peak District. Just an overnight stay for us but we went high up to the back of the site, it was peaceful and had plenty of greenery. We did the short stroll to the Three Horseshoes Hotel, excellent meal in comfortable surroundings. Good drive over motor home point on site. We had visited nearby NT Biddulph Grange on the way, stunning gardens! Beautiful drive onwards past the Roaches and over the hills to Buxton etc.

Not for us.

Cannot complain about the site facilities. However, I wouldn't really call it "dog friendly" as the on site dog walk does not allow dogs off leads and you must tether your dog on a relatively short leash to your van. We found the whole site a bit "regimented". You have to park in a certain way, within a certain distance from the next pitch etc etc .... Roads are too busy to make dog walking easy and there are too many large heavy vehicles using the road to make it safe (in our opinion) to take a relaxing bike ride. We even took the relatively hazardous walk (narrow road and blind bends) with the dog to the reservoir, thinking he could at least have a good run. No - wrong again - they don't allow dogs off the lead either! Having said that, it's a great, safe site for young families. Just not dog friendly and relaxed enough for us.

Definitely no peace and quiet

Visited this site for the first time for a weekend visit with friends celebrating a birthday.Positives are the site has good flat pitches and good access and good clean facilities onsite. Downside was the peace and quiet.From 10.00am on Sunday morning the wardens decided to petrol strim the hedges between pitches.Warden wore ear defenders,it was a pity we all couldn't be supplied with the same. No one could hear each other speak.First occasion went on for 40 minutes of constant stimming until 1040am then stopped. A short while later we left the site to go walking returning early afternoon .After being back for a few minutes they started again on the hedges on the next pitch along.No point sitting outside as the noise was horrendous.Appreciate site maintenance has to be done but a Sunday morning /afternoon? Lots of people come away for chill out weekends to get away from, work wouldn't it have been better a quieter time in the week. Approached the warden doing the work said we were leaving early asked us if we had had enough.Replied I had of the noise and he said it had to be done and he was doing it when the weather was dry.Wasn't really interested when I said fee paying customers might also like a bit of peace on site . When doing a review one of the questions asked is about peace and quiet, i think it was quite reasonable to ask for that. Maybe a high powered petrol strimmer on a Sunday morning might be replaced with a hand held pair of shears and we might all be happy. Left instead of staying tonight payed for with a caravan club voucher. Not the best experience could of been made easier by a better response from the warden.Won't be returning will be revisiting Longnor Wood from now on.
