Why stay here ...

Our CL site is set in a peaceful location in a small village on the east facing slope of the Pennines with stunning views across the countryside. Children and well behaved pets are very welcome. The site has grassed and hard standing pitches (some sloping) with electrical hook-up and plenty of space for awnings etc. The site is securely locked at all times.

The local pub is a 2 minute walks away which serves home-made pie and peas. Behind the pub is a public children's play area. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers as there are plenty of public footpaths in all directions and we are also set along the Pennine Trail which is ideal for walking and cycling. Quite a few of the walks from our CL are circular including 2 nearby reservoirs one of which is pushchair friendly. There are plenty of local shops, café's and restaurants in nearby Denby Dale which is approx 1.5 miles away and also has a train station. Our site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area which offers lots of attractions in nearby Penistone, Holmfirth (Last of The Summer Wine) and the village of Cawthorne which has the fantastic Cannon Hall Park complete with farm, café and farm shops. Also nearby is Bretton Sculpture Park and the Yorkshire Mining Museum.  

The Tour de France is also passing through the area.

We provide a good returnable information pack on arrival with walks, maps, attractions and nearby shops, pubs and restaurants.

If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to meeting you.

Lovely start to our motor home journey

We collected our Elddis Accordo 125 from Peter Roberts Caravans & Motorhomes in Huddersfield and they offered us our first ever night in a motorhome at Holly Tree Cottage to check things out. It would be fair to say that this place has set a very high benchmark for our future touring. Ashley and Alison are charming, warm and friendly hosts and the site is lovely. As said our first experience and we were not expecting such good facilities. Really nice pub within short walking distance and a lovely walk from the site with the dog. Highly recommended and we would stay there again without hesitation.

Still awesome!

After a gap of 2 and a half years, we returned here. Still a fantastic CL. Just what caravanning is about.

Perfect CL

A truly lovely CL, conveniently located but in a tranquil spot. Bus stop opposite if you need one to explore the area or get to Denby Dale, the closest railway station. Lovely walks available on quiet bridleways with a great pub a few minutes walk away. Real ale fans will not be disappointed! Alison and Ashley were the perfect hosts - reasonably priced too.

Fabulous CL

We chanced upon the details of this Certified Location whilst investigating the area, in order to visit our nephew in Holmfirth and our granddaughter in Leeds. Having read previous reviews we had no hesitation in booking and we were not disappointed. We had 10 lovely days there. Alison and Ashley were most welcoming and informative. We had 2 lovely meals at The Dunkirk Inn less than a mile away. We were also able to visit Barnsley, Wakefield and Huddersfield which were not that far away. A beautifully kept site with wonderful views we were glad we read the previous reviews!!! Thank you Alison and Ashley.

What a find!

We originally booked this CL as it was the closest to Cannon Hall Farm, where we attended a wedding this weekend, and are we glad we did! Alison and Ashley could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Alison contacted me the day before our stay to give me details of how to access the site as she was going to be out, these were clear and easy to follow. Both Alison and Ashley were very friendly and keen to share their knowledge of the area and also just have a general chat. Alison helped with hairdresser (although I decided to do my own hair), and taxi numbers well in advance of our trip. The site itself is in a great position overlooking stunning countryside with sheep in the next field and chickens wandering around in and amongst the vans. Some pitches require levelling blocks, and these are rather thoughtfully provided. As we were using the CL purely for the wedding, we didn't visit the local pub, although my parents (who also stayed in their MH) did, and said the Pie and Peas, beer and hospitality were excellent. For some reason, when we do an after work getaway at the weekend, we tend to venture into North Yorkshire, however, this is now on our list of places to go back to, so that we can properly explore the area, it's 30 miles from home and has the lovely walks that we enjoy doing with our dogs, so we will be back, and soon I hope!!!
