Why stay here ...

SAVILE TOWN WHARF MARINA IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING ISSUES WITH THEIR LANDLINE. PLEASE EMAIL FOR ANY QUERIES OR BOOKINGS.

This CL is situated on the Calder and Hebble Navigation, in a picturesque canal wharf known as “Savile Town Wharf” and is within a 10 minute walk from the Market Town of Dewsbury. Savile Town Wharf is steeped in history and tradition; it was built in the nineteenth century, boasting beautiful stone built stable buildings which housed the working horses that pulled the barges along the Calder and Hebble Navigation. The Wharf has undergone extensive sympathetic regeneration with due regards for the heritage of its past in recent years.

Accessed easily, Savile Town Wharf is five minutes drive from junction number 40 on the M1 or ten minutes drive from junction number 25 on the M62. The Wharf is 15 minutes walk from Dewsbury Train Station and 10 minutes walk from Dewsbury Bus Station.

The CL is located on a lawned field with access to water and space for awnings etc available. Chemical toilet disposal, laundry facilities and shared showers and disabled toilets are all available on site.

Children and pets are all welcome. We have 2 outdoor children's play areas and plenty of additional space for picnics or outdoor activity.

On site we have the award winning “Leggers Inn” (winning numerous awards from CAMRA including “Pub of the Year”) which is available for pub grub and traditional “Real Ales” from 11am to 11pm 7 days a week together with the “Old Stables Coffee Shop” serving tradition breakfasts, sandwiches, cakes & coffee etc.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, these include beautiful towpath walks with stunning scenery or cycle rides along the newly created Calder Valley Greenway.

Dewsbury Market is one of the largest outdoor markets in the UK and was voted “Best Market in the Country” and makes a superb destination for a day out. Coach parties from across The North of England make their way to this market every week. The main market is outdoor but has an indoor area which is housed in a fabulous Victorian Market Hall. The main market days are Wednesday & Saturdays. Friday hosts a second-hand market and there is a “Car Bootless” Sale on Sundays.

There are many superb visitor attractions within half an hours drive of Savile Town Wharf which include Kirklees Light Railway, The Royal Armouries, Eureka Children’s Museum the Yorkshire Mining Museum, Cannon Hall Museum and children farm, and the hugely impressive Dewsbury Minster which can be traced back to AD627 when St Paulinus is said to have visited.

This combination makes Savile Town Wharf the perfect destination for caravan & motorhome owners, boaters, walkers and cyclist alike.

Advance booking is preferred. The CCEP is located in the on site pub and is shared with canal boat visitors.

Laundry on site (a shared facility).

There is free WiFi in the adjacent pub.

There is use of a shower and toilet from 0630 - 2359 but this is a shared facility.

A good stopover place if you want to be local

This is a nicer site than you might fear from the approach through the industrial estate, so stick with it; once you're in it's quite a pleasant canal-side location with residential streets on the opposite bank. Its facilities and general presentation are all you could expect for its price. The pub is nice, and all four staff that I came into contact with we're very helpful and friendly. Some might be disturbed by the occasional high-revving car in adjacent streets in the night.

Savile Town Wharf Marina
Gordon was so friendly and helpful.Site has all-out need and is a relaxing place amongst the narrow boats.Food in the pub was good and walksfor the dog.The one shower and toilets shared with marina users could be cleaner but all fine for a short stay especially if you have your own facilities. Will visit again

Stayed here for a couple of nights as visiting family in Wakefield. After reading the other reviews we were open minded however we were pleasantly supprised. Pub on site did good food. Gordon was very helpful The boat owners were all friendly, and yes a couple of dogs roam, but they caused no issues with ours. We were on pitch two from the car park and as we were the only van, had mains water :) Didn't use the facilities so cant comment. Nice walks on the canal £13 per night. What more can you ask for. My only piece of advice. Do not use the entrance/exit furthest away from pub as your van will bottom out. Come in and go out including when just in your car by the entrance next to the pub
