    I've run a lot of LRP weekends on various scout sites up and down the country over the last 20 years but this site ranks as one of the very best. From the great facilities, the owners who can't do enough for you and the great variance in terrain, etc. Having seen the site for the first time over 18 months ago to where it is now shows a level of dedication that is great to see.

    I hope to go back for more and hope others will do so as well.

  • Great venue for LARP. Has more than its fair share of muddy parts but the site is diverse enough to run some interesting events.

    Huge varied landscape, hot showers, proper toilets, heated cabins, kitchen, bar , tent rental ... the site facilities are excellent and continue to grow and improve. Just watch out for the rabbits! They rolled my tent, nearly making off with a bottle of Budweiser and they ate the sausage rolls. They have a taste for meat now!!

  • I have played Vale LRP at Huntley Wood since it's inception four years ago.

    The site is amazing. Everyone who plays loves the site. The amenities are always well managed. The local wildlife is returning in droves since it was a sand and gravel quarry. Last weekend I believe I even heard a nightingale at about dusk.

    We were at Huntley Wood last weekend for a Firefly LARP. Absolutely brilliant place, with great quality amenities and lovely woodlands to play in.

    We had the place to ourselves, and there was no hassle from anyone passing by. A lovely lady came and cleaned very early in the morning (before any of us were up and about), so that the toilets were clean and tidy. The buildings are very functional, with three huts that interconnect or can be separated depending on what people want, a fully equipped kitchen and stackable benches / tables. The toilet facilities are state of the art for a campsite; the best I have seen so far.

    The absolute selling point is the surrounding nature, the beautiful woods with high trees and foliage, up and down slopes and the lake. There was even a fire pit, close to the huts, well stocked with logs for a night of drinking and banter with friends. Highly recommended!

  • Huntley Wood is probably the best larp site in the UK, with its varied terrain and the real effort that has been put into the facilities it is a pleasure to play there. The Wyldwood in particular is the most comfortable place to camp as well as having the interesting woodland.

    Fantastic facilities (underfloor heating in the toilets, you heroes and moisturiser, moisturiser I tell you!) and well managed woodlands. Secure gated access to camp areas, making everything feel a lot less worrysome about parked cars over the weekend. A great site, can't wait to use it again.

  • I regularly attend LARP events here and I love it, it's always clean, it has warm huts and proper facilities but still feels like LARP venue. The open space and forests are great for losing oneself in. Thanks you

    Did a recent episode of Goldrush at Huntley Wood and it's the best LARP site I've ever used. Wildwood was a nice intimate setting with excellent facilities.

    The layout of the buildings meant we could use them how we wanted and it's the little things like having a well equipped kitchen (cheese grater!) sensibly locate power sockets and a quick way to put up wall hangings really makes a difference.

    Nothing much in the way of biting insects either even though we camped in the trees.

    An excellent site with friendly, helpful staff. The site facilities are modern, clean and very user friendly. There is ample parking space, good access and even a list of take aways which deliver to the site! The sites are varied and interesting and provide an excellent venue. I would definitely recommend Huntley Wood to anyone.

  • I really enjoyed the event that was played here. I think half the reason i enjoyed it is because of the venue. Large open space, beautiful and privet landscape, and the facilities are top quality.

    A good LARP site. I stayed on one of the 3 sites which was currently still under improvement. The house was lovely with great potential. The toliet block was lovely with big cubicals with a handy cloak hooks in the ladies. The only dowside was as it had rained all day the site had turned into a marshy swamp. Very wet under foot with large puddles everywhere. However it had great little paths leading off for multiple linears.

    Having been a regular visitor to Huntley Wood for a number of years I can honestly say it is the best LARP site in the UK. Friendly staff, an amazing array of options for running events, superb facilities and it's location in the middle of the UK make it ideal for games small and large. Absolutely at the top of our list when looking for sites

    Amazing site. Perfect for larp, though I warn you, it is an 'exercise' site 😉

    Bloody brilliant!!
