Why stay here ...

Our CL Site is set within the award winning grounds of Wortley Hall, an 18th Century Grade II listed stately home offering guests the perfect retreat for a relaxing getaway.

Wortley Hall offers an a la carte restaurant “ The Ruddy Duck “ open Tues to Sat 1800 until 2100 and reservations are required. It also offers a comfortable bar which is open daily from 12 noon and also has a varied lunch and dinner menu. Also Wifi available in the hall.

Why not also take advantage of the outdoor terrace overlooking the stunning formal gardens for a morning coffee or afternoon tea. Sunday lunch is also available and the very popular carvery is well worth a visit.

The hall hosts special events throughout the year such as the Vintage Car Rally, Craft Fayres, Wine Tasting Dinners, Christmas Events plus its Annual Festival in the summer.

Dogs are welcome at no additional charge and we have excellent dog walking areas and ample countryside for long walks. The Historic village of Wortley is walkable from the site and offers a church, country pub and restaurant, village store and Post office, farm shop, tea rooms, and much more. Wortley Hall Golf Club is also nearby for golf lovers.

The CL site is a good base for those wishing to also experience the interesting sites of the surrounding area. Based within easy reach of the Pennine Trail and the Peak District it’s a walkers or cyclist dream. The nearby market town of Penistone is renowned for its farmers Market which attracts visitors all year round. The Yorkshire Dales are also waiting to be discovered slightly further afield.

There are also other historic houses to visit locally such as Wentworth Woodhouse, Wentworth Castle, and Cannon Hall. Chatsworth House is also an easy day trip. For those interested in the heritage of the area visits to Elsecar Heritage Centre, The National Coal Mining Museum, Kelham Island and Wortley Top Forge are also well worthwhile. For the shopaholics Meadowhall, one of Europe's top shopping malls with an extensive range of shops and restaurants is located just at Junction 34 from the M1.

Our site is open all year round with the exception of Christmas Day and Boxing Day and has excellent links to the M1 Motorway which is only a short distance away. All five pitches are hard standing along with the drive up to the site and come with electric hook up.There is a minimum 2 night stay if staying on a Friday or Saturday night. No extra charge for bringing a dog or putting up an awning.  

We look forward to welcoming you to our site.

Beautiful But

This site is beautiful, wonderful scenery and views , pub close 10 mins walk away and also small shop , Would definitely return , But they need a couple of skips to remove the old bathroom suites piled up near the new toilet / shower block , We took our dog and disappointed not to find dog waste bin , hence people not picking up after there dog near where we where pitched , Also we had a very noisy neighbour who thought it was acceptable to have Ibiza rave in his camper on his lonesome till 1 am We did report it to reception who where very obliging to speak to him he also didn’t leave till after 12.30 pm the next day , he obviously had his own rules of camping club , Luckily he was there only for one night Or else we would have left ,thankfully we had a better second night and would definitely return

September 2020

Lovely clean site, very secure, really good contact from reception prior to arrival. Keypad entry to site and for showers/ toilets too (but we use our own). Secluded little part of the vast grounds and very pleasant walking available throughout. Loved the walled garden in autumn sunshine. The Hall has a really nice restaurant and bar food available (as well as afternoon tea). There is a safe off the road bridle track walk to the next village. However the village of Wortley itself is an easy 5 min walk and has a pub, coffee rooms, farm shop and a lovely old village church. Will happily come back here for another short break.

Fabulous CL

Stayed here for 2 nights. What a lovely location, with toilets and showers. Probably the best CL we have stayed on to date. The bar in the Hall is quiet and the staff especially Dave behind the bar are very informative about the history of the Hall. There is a pub called the Wortley Arms 10 minutes walk away, which has a good selection of drinks and also does fine dining. Next to it is the Mens Club. This was a great find with friendly locals and fish and chips served on a friday. Locally there at lots of walks and cycle rides on the Trans Pennine Trail. We loved it.

What a fabulous CL!

Set in a tranquil and scenic location, Wortley Hall is a treat - easy to find and access. The CL area is beautifully landscaped and kept, though the pitches aren't that level so bear that in mind. The shower/toilet block is excellent - clean, new and very well appointed. Poorly lit access in the dark/rain though, so don't forget your trusty torch and the door code they give you. The disposal/fresh water services are close enough to the pitches, offer everything you need and are practically designed and well-thought-through. There's a little shop in easy walking distance and there plenty of info in Reception. The history and ownership of the Hall are interesting too and the gardens and "pond" are stunning. Look out for the ducks... The only bizarre note was the fact that the chef decided to close the kitchen an hour early on a whim...I could understand it for the restaurant at which I'd always expect to make a reservation, but not for bar food....and this was a right pain frankly...especially as I checked the timings when we booked in. That aside we'd go back like a shot...

Wortley A Stunning Place

We stayed here over late May Bank Holiday(yes just got round to doing my review). Quaint CL site situated behind Wortley Hall near the Walled Garden. All the pitches are surrounded with their own privet hedge for privacy..yes they are quite small compared to some but we managed with our twin axle and kampa air awning adequately. The toilets and showers are so modern and clean. The grounds are wonderful for walks with abundance of wild life..and you have access all around . We loved exploring with out dogs. A small walk into the village from the estate where you will find the pub....club...shop...post office..tea rooms..enough for what we needed. My only gripe as stated before was the continuous visitors to the hall to various weddings ect.( there were 2 weddings the weekend we stayed) who thought that they could just wander around the Cl site..I really didn't like this... as you don't know who they are or what they are up to..as a caravanner for many many years I have never been concerned about what we leave in our awnings when going out..but here I did..Wortley Hall need to put up very clear signs that there is a Strict No Access to the Caravan Site unless you are staying on it.
