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.

3 night stay

Holly Tree Cottage
On Arrival Ashley the site owner.(hubby) was waiting offering help to set up.. which for us as novice carvanners was very warming. The site is very peaceful clean and tidy.Only a handful of caravans on the site which again made it very quaint.Nearby pubs the George Inn... pie peas and gravy to die for and that's it pie peas and gravy and good ale.. no menu.. which is great. The owners of the site recommended the Dunkirk a short drive out of Upper Denby.. TBH the best meal I have had in a long time... a must... nearby walks great and plenty to see.... lovely spot great hosts certainly would visit again..Thanks Alison and Ashley.

Good for walking and cycling

Holly Tree Cottage
We regularly stay here to visit family in Holmfirth. Always a warm welcome in this lovely CL. This time we tried the excellent trails and cycle tracks you can reach directly from the site. Remember the site is sloping but the hosts will supply wooden blocks for your support stays.

Truly peaceful and welcoming stay

Holly Tree Cottage
We stayed here for 3 nights during the first May bank holiday. We don't normally use small CL sites but wanted to try one out. The owner was very welcoming and invited us to choose between a hardstanding area or the grass area. We choose the hardstanding as our van is quite heavy. It was so peaceful an idyllic setting. All the lambs were in the paddock next to the site, a couple of friendly hens wandering around what more could you ask for? The site was near great walks which was perfect for us. The village is really nice with a a great pub. The site is great value and will definitely be back. Thank you for a great intro to CLs we loved our stay,

Lovely start to our motor home journey

Holly Tree Cottage
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.

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