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.

Going to be a Sad Loss

Wortley Hall
This is our local CL, and it’s a very very nice one. Sadly, it is going to close later this year, but meantime, we thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay here recently. Booked for a wedding, over two years ago, but right from then to arrival, very easy to book. We got a reminder two days prior, paid in full, and then collected gate key for our allocated pitch on arrival. It’s set away from the Hall itself, in a beautifully landscaped and planted area, full of colour, sheltered but open, with no pitches in deep shade. Pitches do slope slightly, and for MHs, pitches 2-5 are the easiest, for space you want pitches 1,2 or 5, but all are big enough for a large outfit and awning. Separated by colourful Copper Beech hedging. All services are close by, within 30 metres, shed for CDP point. Waste water and drinking taps adjacent, with recycling bins off in their own area. This area is gated for vehicles, but pedestrians can access as the Walled Gardens are close by. The two shower rooms are accessed via a door code, and are in a separate building around 100 metres away. They are simply superb. Hotel quality fittings, spacious, and very clean. This is a fantastic location for any of the Hall’s numerous events, we enjoyed our family wedding, but enjoyed strolling the grounds, riding out on our bikes, with the Trans Pennine Trail access half a mile away. This is Yorkshire Cycling country at its finest, with the chance for those very fit to ride part of the Tour de France Grand Depart 2014 routes, as well as off road tracks as well. It’s a rural location, but not far from Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, and plenty of places to visit, including Wentworth Woodhouse, Wentworth Castle, Pot Hamlet, Yorkshire Mining Museum, Cannon Hall, all not far away. Don’t miss a chance to look around Wortley Hall itself, very interesting inside, with both a restaurant and bar meals of good quality available. Aside from the Wedding food, we ate here twice more, with food very nice. A great location for an active holiday, or a peaceful location simply just to chill out. We shall try and stay again before it finally closes. Dog owners, great for dogs, they are very welcome on leads, all around the grounds, but the ducks are simply everywhere, so you do need to be in control😁 This will be a very sadly missed CL.

Very sad to hear that Wortley Hall CL will be closing down!

Wortley Hall
We really enjoyed our stay at the Wortley Hall CL. It’s at a lovely tranquil location for exploring South Yorkshire and Sheffield as well as a convenient stop over. The facilities are the best we’ve seen so far and the restaurant, bar and reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We’d have loved to stay again but it was very sad to hear that Wortley Hall site will be closing down for good in November 2022.

Unique CL in peaceful surroundings

Wortley Hall
Having read many positive reviews we decided to give Wortley Hall a try. Location is good with access to walks and the village with its coffee shop, pub(limited opening times) farm shop ( also limited opening hours) Pitches are on the small side but ok for us as we have a small motorhome but anything large would struggle. Also the pitches are sloping you will definitely need ramps. Pitches are allocated to you when you arrive at the hotel reception, you need a key to unlock a gate into the site, it’s a pain as the gate has dropped and you need a little force to get the lock off and on. I’m not sure why it needs to be locked. Shower is clean and well lit and a short walk from the site. Generally a nice site in grounds of an old historic hotel, the gardens are looking a little shabby but that’s understandable after the year we’ve had. I much prefer a CL to a club site and this one is definitely a revisit in the future.

Fantastic

Wortley Hall
We spent six nights here when restrictions lifted in April. Arrival was straightforward and levelling was fairly easy. The grounds are breathtaking and a delight to wake up to. I have never seen so many ducks in one place in my life!! We visited the tea rooms for our daughters birthday and they were more than accommodating. And we visited Wortley Hall’s grounds for drinks on a few occasions. The bar is well run and organised. The site is very well situated for shopping (we went to Meadowshall shopping centre) and as we would normally visit the crucible this time of year we will definitely return when we’re able to go back there. All in all a very pleasant stay. Very picturesque.

Beautiful But

Wortley Hall
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
