Great base for local area

This site is was perfect for us visiting family and attending an event in Leeds. Site is down a lovely quiet lane. Very close to the M62 but remarkably this did not matter, yes there is a constant hum as others have mentioned but it did not bother us. The site is tidy and compact. The owner was friendly and helpful. As a base for visiting it was ideal and I am sure we will come again. Only slight downside for us as dog owners as there was very little within a 1-2 mile radius to take the dog. The lane is ok but to take off the lead and stretch his legs there was not much. Also be aware if coming in colder months the owner states electric heaters are not permitted as presumably they feel they use too much electricity. It also says £10 a night, we were charged £12.50 with a small porch awning so that could do with updating on here. Overall a handy little site.

Great for going back in time

An ideal site for our visit to the Brighouse 1940s weekend. When we initially booked we had to leave a message on the answerphone. Later that evening Mrs Fretwell rang back and confirmed our booking - and gave us the code to the security gate. We arrived midday on the Friday - to find our hardstanding had been reserved for us with a cone - it had been raining so the grassed area could have been soft - better safe than sorry. We reversed in to our pitch on the first night - our habitation door is on the driver's side - but on the second night we drove in to take advantage of the fact that the grassed area was vacated - allowing us to put out our awning and take advantage of the last of the evening sunshine and dine 'al fresco'. Mrs Fretwell was very chatty and made us feel very welcome. Even though the motorway wasn't too far away, the "hum" of the traffic did not interfere with a peaceful night's sleep. The birds made more noise in the morning!! We were also pitched next to a mobile phone mast - and didn't notice the hum until another "camper" asked if the "hum" had bothered us - even then - once I could hear it - the noise wasn't obtrusive - as I said - had my attention not been drawn to it I wouldn't have noticed it at all. Needless to say, we had a strong mobile phone signal. Should we ever visit that area in the future we won't hesitate to book there again.

Overnight stop

Had an overnight on this site, very easy to find with a good welcome from the owner. Site is level and well kept and electric gates for security. A very good site with good access to leeds and the surrounding area. Found the site peaceful part from the Lancaster flying overhead which was unplanned treat. Would recommend and will return for a longer stay.

Just what a CL should be

What a gem. Great site with EHU, water and waste disposal all within easy reach of Leeds. Although it is close to the Motorway network we didn’t hear any traffic noise. Due to recent wet weather we stayed off the field on hard standing along with 3 others, we all had plenty of space. Sadly the owner is moving and it is unlikely the new owners will maintain the CL. Such a shame

Visited Annually for Past 3 Years

Lovely well looked after site owned by a lovely welcoming lady. Ideal for Leeds & Bradford. We have relatives living locally in Gomersal. The M62 is within view and there's the obvious sound of the traffic, but not too intrusive. There is a mobile phone mast on the site which affects TV reception so satellite TV recommended. Otherwise very highly recommended.
