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.

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!!!

Excellent CL

What an excellent CL! Alison and Ashley keep this site immaculate, stunning views and great location. 2 minute walk to the pub which has great pie and peas and lovely atmosphere that allows dogs, reasonably priced too. Would definitely come back.

Fabulous CL!

We stayed here recently for a couple of nights after collecting our new van as we wanted to make sure everything worked and to get us back into caravanning after a break of 10 years or so... Alison & Ashley could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful - absolutely wonderful hosts! The site is easily reached and access down a long drive could not be more simple - we had a great pitch under some small trees and within easy access of water & waste disposal. Alison provided an extension lead to allow us to hook up the electric and we were set... The local pub, The George, comes highly recommended - extremely friendly landlord and very welcoming locals, much as we've come to expect in our adopted home of Yorkshire! The pub does wonderful home made pies but do book up in advance as they sell out extremely quickly... All in all, this could not have been a better reintroduction to caravanning and reminded us why we always preferred CLs. Many thanks to Alison & Ashley for such a great stay!

Just Perfect

This is the first but certainly not the last visit to this site, it is quite possibly the nicest cl we have been on. The owners Alison and Ashley are so friendly and helpful but not in you face, even brought pet lamb Pippin for our granddaughter to see, a gem of a site, we will be back OFTEN.

Fantastic!

This was our first CL and our first trip out this year, with our new puppy, so a trial run....10 mins from home!!!! The weather wasn't very kind to us initially, but we still had a wonderful weekend, Alison and Ashley are the perfect hosts, with lots of useful information, even though we were local we still learnt lots! We came back fully refreshed and relaxed! The highlight had to be popping in to see the last lamb of the season, just after it had been born, the children loved that! We will be back! Thank you both for a wonderful stay - sorry the review is a bit late! :)
