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, Garden and 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.

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.

Almost Perfect!

Wortley Hall is an excellent CL. As the name implies it is in the grounds of Wortley Hall set behind the Hall and far enough away to avoid any excess noise. The Hall itself has an interesting history as in the 1950's it was purchased by the Trade Union movement to use as a Conference Centre and a place for holidays, a function that continues to this day. The five pitches are all on hardstanding with an area of grass alongside. Unfortunately they are on a bit of a slope which is probably a bigger problem for motorhomers than those members with caravans. In fairness this is pointed out on the webpage for this site. There is a very neat and nicely done water and waste water disposal point and a chemical emptying point in an enclosed shed like building. The excellent toilet/shower facilities are contained in one of the outbuildings a little way from the pitches. They are spacious and completed to a very nice standard. The outbuilding has a key pad lock for access. Given that there is still a lot of empty space within the building housing the facilities I wonder if this will be used for future provision of services? Wortley Hall has a restaurant called the Ruddy Duck and there is also The Fire Brigade Union Bar where we had a nice lunch one day. No WiFi at the pitches but I understand this is available at the Hall. The 4G signal was pretty good. You are free to wander around the grounds of the Hall and the walled garden. Sometimes non CL visitors find themselves by mistake at the CL when they take a wrong path! It is a fairly short uphill walk into the village of Wortley which has a pub, post office, shop and coffee shop. Unfortunately public transport is a bit limited but there is an infrequent bus service along the main road. Highly recommended.

very good overall

Everything was fine nice site with excellent facilities, one minor point needs sign on toilet door to remind people to make sure door is locked after use as people from hotel wander around. A bigger point is that the gate should be put further up to stop people wandering up to site, a sign would help stating no public beyond this, also this would make it easier ,as where you park to go to reception you block people in . The site it self is excellent pub within easy walking distance , good ale food pricey for what you get. Hall good drinks, and food good so I was told and cheaper. The dog loved his walks around the gardens we were on pitch 5 which overlooks duck pond. We will be back I am sure.

Wonderful Wortley Wowed us!

WOW a Very nice peaceful site with all hard standing pitches separated by a hedge for privacy, toilets and showers very nice and clean and modern, waste and rubbish facilities are very good, the site is tucked away in a nice corner near the walled garden and duck pond and is secured with locked gates which each camper has a key for the duration of the stay, it has some beautiful walks around the estate, lots of wildlife to be seen from Ducks who visit the caravans daily, pheasants, squirrels and hares. Just a 5 minute walk to the entrance of the estate is a local grocery shop & post office and Wortley WMC & Wortley Arms who serve Cask Ales and food. My only recommendation to improve this site is to stop walkers who visit the Hall wandering up into the caravan site and being nosy as they walk past as you don't know who they are and what some of them may be up to when you aren't at your caravan which makes it feel a bit less secure. it needs clear signs at the entrance to the site stating No access to members of the public.
