Why stay here ...
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.
