We love a good glamping spot here in Manchester, and with plenty of spaces to walk and take in a bit of fresh air, it’s no surprise that we’ve got some of the best camping spots around the region. Five-star camping and glamping site Longnor Wood Holiday Park in the Peak District has been named the UK’s Best Adult Only Site by Campsites.co.uk in its 2023 Camping and Glamping Awards.
The AA Gold Pennant site near Buxton was highlighted for its pristine facilities, quiet environment and great location in the heart of the Peak District.
The annual awards, run by the national online booking site, identify the best campsites, glamping spots, and touring sites across the country, and celebrate those that have provided exceptional services for outdoor enthusiasts throughout the year. Award categories include Best Campsite, Best Caravan Park, Best Coastal Campsite, Best Newcomer, and Most Unique Site.
Sam Kitchen, who manages Longnor Wood along with her husband Ian and brother James, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this award. Being a site that is exclusively for adults, we aim to create a destination where people can completely relax and get away from it all.
“Our focus is on providing the best possible experience for our guests through improving our already excellent facilities, offering a quality personal service and going above and beyond for our guests. Many of our guests return year after year because they love the site and its location so much.”
Open throughout the year apart from January, Longnor Wood is surrounded by woodland and within easy reach of popular Peak District walking and cycling trails, as well as market towns and attractions.
The dog-friendly site offers a range of accommodation including ensuite glamping pods, luxury lodges and caravan holiday homes with outdoor hot tubs, as well as all-weather pitches for camping and tourers.
Martin Smith, founder of Campsites.co.uk, said: “Competition was extremely tight this year, but Longnor Wood Holiday Park really has gone above and beyond to create the ultimate stay, making it a worthy winner of our Best Adult Only Site in the UK. Its great location combined with excellent amenities, friendly customer service and thoughtful touches, such as books and games to borrow, are what help to set it apart from the rest.”
