Peak District Holiday Park shortlisted for regional award

AN AA FIVE-STAR Peak District camping and glamping site has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award.

Longnor Wood Holiday Park has been named as a finalist in the Peak District, Derbyshire and Derby Tourism Awards in the Camping, Glamping and Holiday Park of the Year category.

The Gold Pennant adults only site near Buxton offers a range of accommodation including ensuite glamping pods, luxury lodges and caravan holiday homes with outdoor tubs, as well as all-weather pitches for camping and tourers.

Sam Kitchen, who manages the site along with her husband Ian and brother James, said: “We are over the moon to have been shortlisted for this award. 

“Longnor Wood is a really special place which is reflected in the feedback we get from our guests and how many return for repeat visits. People really feel like they can get away from it all here because of our rural location which is surrounded by woodland and has great walking routes, pubs, and market towns within easy reach as well as being an excellent base to visit the Chatsworth estate.

“The Peak District is home to some really brilliant tourism businesses and we wish all of the finalists the best of luck.”
