The WoWo campsite is run by the Cragg family: Paul, Jean, Alice, Bea and their super friendly staff. We booked for two nights and were enthusiastically welcomed by Esther who gave us a map, explained the facilities, workshops, and trials.

First impressions? Stunning! The grass is cut, ground is mostly flat, clean toilet and showers. Streams with stepping stones and wood bridges. You can choose where to pitch the tent from multiple picturesque fields. There is no limit on pitch space as the price is per person. We selected a pitch that had a designated camp fire with surrounding bench seating.

There are lots for children to explore, and WoWo certainly has made the most of their fantastic location. The children can wade in streams (no fish), cross the bridges, cross the logs over the streams, explore the woods, play Tarzan from the rope swings etc etc. For children over 6 this is great, but for 3 - 5 year olds this type of play is too precarious. A designated area with baby/infant swings, slide, and a climbing frame would be a great addition for little explorers.

At sunset, the place felt magical and the smell of campfires really heightened the outdoor experience. We bought a large pile of wood + some locally sourced sausages from the camp shop and struck up our campfire. Btw, we did all our cooking for the entire stay on an open fire! Sitting around a campfire a night, cooking sausages and - I can't say 'swapping stories' - as the kids were having the time of their lives burning marsh-mellows on sticks to buggery, still, it all felt very intimate and special.

Sleeping at the site was no problem at all. There were no parties, loud music, dogs barking or werewolves (as per the bedtime book I read the kids). In the morning we walked up to the onsite shop to peruse items to cook for breakfast. The shop is stocked with locally sourced goods: meat, uncut bread, cider, apple juices etc - a nice touch and @ supermarket prices. Each evening there is a pizza van where you can buy a freshly cooked pizza and on other nights you can buy fish and chips etc.

The kids were never bored, but they did go through a few changes of clothes each day due to either getting covered in mud and dirt or soaked in the river. Which is fine, as there are shower facilities. WoWo run activities during the week including learning circus tricks, bushcraft, juggling, astronomy, wildlife talks. There is also a games room with table tennis, sofas, and television, books, tea and coffee plus fridges to store your food. The site has Wi-Fi. Next to the campsite is the Sheffield Park Railway and Sheffield Park Gardens. Both are worth visiting.


Our time at WoWo flew by and we will definitely visit again, hopefully for more than 2 nights. I'd like to see facilities for the infants, but whether you have children or not this is a highly recommended experience, made more endearing by the staff. This is a place where if you can play an instrument for an hour, you get a free nights stay!
