What's not to like?

Lightwood Farm
Just returned from a three night stay at this site. Electric Hook-up, your own water tap, very peaceful/tranquil site set in the countryside yet so close to Sheffield, Chesterfield, Peak District etc. Lovely views over the valley, plenty of country walks direct from the site, decent size pitches, grass nicely mown. All this for £10, yes only £10, a night. Kay was available on the end of the phone on the couple of occasions we needed to contact her. Some people weren't happy about the toilet disposal being on the farm 150 yards away, but as others have said that's not an issue really, and you can drive round if you want. All the details are explained clearly on their (very good) website so you can clearly see what you're getting/not getting. However, there isn't a link from the CAMH CL listing to the website so you have to find that yourself and details on CAMH listing are a bit brief, so my constructive suggestion would be to add a link to the website on the CAMH listing. We would recommend this site as an excellent "no frills" site with EHU and at £10 it must surely be one of the best value sites in the whole CL network

Won’t be the last visit

Lightwood Farm
Stayed at this site over the weekend as it was our side of Sheffield and it certainly won’t be the last time we go. You can’t believe that such a peaceful area can be just 5 miles from the centre of Sheffield . Easy to find using directions given and the site was just what we were looking for; if you want peace and quiet then you’re at the right place. Yes the toilet emptying is at the farm but that isn’t really an issue but there a few things that need pointing out. Firstly, the site itself is down a very narrow Lane so make sure you have your wits about you as cars tend to come speeding around the blind bends. Secondly, the pitches aren’t marked out so you have to guess where to pitch up but each pitch has its own tap so we just went to the right of a tap to give us an idea. Handy for trams and busses into Sheffield as all you have to do is walk to the top of the road and the trams are straight in front you. There is also a shopping centre just up the road and an Asda supermarket 3 miles away for those essentials. All in all a great weekend and a great place to get away.

A pleasant weekend

Lightwood Farm
I don't understand previous reviews for this rural/city site. We found it to be exactly how the web site described it. You can't beat it for value. Very quiet setting on the edge of the city of Sheffield. The site is fairly level. Despite the recent heavy rain we found the ground to be very firm. The EHU proved to be reliable. Ok so the chemical disposal is at the farm 100yds (ish) down the road. That is the farm you pass on the left every time you leave the site. Who wants chemical disposal beside their pitch anyway?? Having arrived on the Friday afternoon we got to meet Kay (and their dogs) on Saturday lunchtime. Very friendly and welcoming lady. if you are visiting this area I would definately recommend this site. We are hoping to be back at some point.

Super Value - Great Location

Lightwood Farm
Located on a quiet country lane just a few miles outside Sheffield this CL is run by a very helpful and friendly couple (Kay and Chris). Even in October (2017) the site is still accessible is somewhat soft under foot. Power supply is okay but tripped out when my we used higher power appliances (coffee make and hairdryer). But Chris came and reset the circuit breakers after we sent a text. Water supply is on the CL location but to get rid of toilet waste you need to go up to a point on the farmhouse site just about 75m back up the country lane. Very quiet and pretty I am sure we will be back again.

Crackin' Site!

Lightwood Farm
Luvly site, down a country lane just off the main ring road, secluded, quiet. Bit wet but that's our great British weather. Easy to find if you follow the directions. Mostly flat, Yes the toilet emptying point is at the farm, but I just put my cassette in the car, job done. The owners were very friendly & helpful. We have relatives in nearby Rotherham so ideal for us. I think some members expect too much from a CL & all for £10 a night!. What more can I say, we will be back, Thanx Mavis. Lol.
