A pleasant weekend

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

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!

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.

Handy stopover for

We found ourselves in the Sheffield area and needed somewhere to stop for the night. Kay was most welcoming and put us up on some hardstanding as the field was a bit soggy. Quiet and peaceful, surrounded by open countryside yet just 15 minutes from the city of Sheffield.

7 vans just not acceptable

I think we must have been staying on a different site to the other reviewers as I didn’t get the same feeling. I certainly don’t think I’ve given a CL such a low rating. +’s Quiet nice view, Kay was very helpful with our plans before our stay, very close to the city. -‘s 7 vans on site – this is just not acceptable, people using the site to exercise dogs and the obvious ‘issues’ that come with that, hardly saw the owners, grass needed cutting, only 2 points for power meaning that I needed an extra lead, CDP and waste bins about 100m away at the farm, site has been roped off for the horses so whilst quoted as 1 acre it’s more like 0.5 acre.
