Lovely, peaceful CL so close to the city

Lightwood Farm
We stayed overnight here on our way back to North Yorkshire from Cornwall, to visit friends in Sheffield. Such a lovely, peaceful and quiet site. Remarkably so, being so close to the city of Sheffield and just off its southern ring road, and yet having such a rural outlook. At twilight we saw bats and enjoyed the sounds of nature around us. Kay, the owner, was very helpful before our stay via email and friendly when we met her. We’d definitely recommend and will certainly be back.

Bad Experience at this site

Lightwood Farm
Unfortunately we had a bad experience at this site and would not return or recommend now. We have never left a negative site review until now however we feel upset at the owners lack of ownership to the situation we encountered. When we booked the owner was very friendly and accommodating. As we are still shielding she agreed we could have the end pitch and put string to block it off so others couldn’t take it, which was very considerate. When we arrived it was pouring down and very muddy at the entrance to the field. No one can help the Yorkshire weather but maybe some gravel at this entrance part of the field may be helpful as the wheels on the car was literally caked in mud. Regarding tranquility to say the site is down a narrow lane there is quite a lot of noisy traffic up and down on the road, especially early morning directly behind the caravans so not the most peaceful of sites if that’s what you are looking for. There was a huge pile of horse manure at the side of our pitch. As the owners had just placed the string at the edge of our pitch we assumed they thought this was acceptable. The pitch we were on had lots and lots of flies and flying bugs/insects which can’t be helped by it was probably encouraged by the huge pile of manure! We tried to cover it with some tree branches. I stayed in the caravan after the first couple of days and we kept on all the fly screens to try and keep out the bugs as I have a problem with my Immune system and didn’t want to get bitten. Unfortunately I was and had to speak with my Doctor. They advised I leave the site and I stated antibiotics. So we had stayed 4 nights out of our planned 8. When we spoke with the owner she said she was very sorry about the manure and felt awful that the pitch had been left in that state. and was so sorry but yet refused to refund the remaining 4 days of our stay. We felt that half the fee would have at least shown some recognition for the situation, and we said we would be happy to accept half the fees back but unfortunately they refused. This was a very disappointing reaction we felt. We had to find somewhere else to stay and pay again. It is a very basic site however this is reflected in the low price so is expected and so overall a good site price. We appreciate the low site price but that had nothing to do with the situation I have described above. It is just so disappointing to have received the response and attitude we did as a customer from the owner to the problem when they acknowledged the pitch should not have been left for us like it was.

Lovely views and area

Lightwood Farm
We stayed for a few nights in December……..perhaps not the best time after a very rainy time as the field was hugely slippery! We were warned about it beforehand and there are plans for HS. The views were lovely and there are some lovely walks from the site. Sheffield has a lot to offer. The owners were very nice, and were prepared to tow us out if we got stuck!

Nice site

Lightwood Farm
Great no frills place to stay for access to surrounding countryside. Superb views. Good welcome and easy access to walks without moving the motorhome. Great location for us to catch up with friends living that end of Sheffield. Need to use levelling blocks but that’s a regular occurrence wherever you park up. Great to have own access to water tap and EHU, a deciding factor to use this site. This is our second visit over a number of years and will be happy to return again. Excellent value for money.

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
