See what some of our visitors have to say:-
'' We have been coming here for 7 years and probably
8 times each year..we love it here..we have two 
young kids who we hardly see as It's very safe for
them to play in the woods or park with all the other
kids. All the staff are fab and always try to
accommodate us even if they are busy. The facilities
are great..clean and free showers and a well stocked
shop. Our dog loves coming as there is ample walking
close by and a nice afternoon walk to cromford where
there are a couple of pubs. Lovely site..very family
oriented campsite. Would highly recommend this
campsite. Keep up the good work birchwood :) ''
