Great site looking over the valley. Excellent owner and good price for reasonable facilities and a view to kill for! Many walks around but do get there by using the route given in conjunction with the website. If not you'll be lost and frustrated. A must visit in my list and gets 10 out of 10

We would rather not tell people what a beautiful little site this is, although we only stopped one night we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet, the views are wonderful. Basic toilet and shower but not a problem at all. The owner was really helpful and friendly, had an issue with directions but she talked us through without any issue. Chatted and laughed with some lovely neighbours.

Holmfirth was buzzing, very lively on a summer evening.

Check directions before going, beware sat nav, in a car it wouldn't be too much of a problem but tricky if towing or larger motorhome, at the moment it only gives directions from Holmfirth, be careful if coming from other direction.

Lovely cl site with magnificent views facilities kept very clean. Very friendly owners and very helpful.

Nice short walk into Holmfirth although did not walk back as up hill but a taxi back only cost 5. 00.

What a fabulous spot!

Hard to imagine that within 30 minutes walk, admittedly up a steepish farm track, that you could move from the bustle of Holmfirth on a Saturday evening to splendid isolation, but its true.

On a clear day you can see for miles across West and South Yorkshire. Weather was pretty lively when we stayed, so we had a brilliant day watching the weather fronts come and go.

The facilities are simple but very clean. The shower was good and hot. Ground was flat in parts nearest walls, but gently sloping along the fencing and firm, even though it rained whilst we were there in our Autovista motorhome. Lots of space too. We paid 15 per night for motorhome, 2 people, 2 dogs & electric.

The owners Darren & Kim are delightful. Darren recommended The Nook as a pub in which to drink and eat. We weren't disappointed. Great atmosphere, friendly (dogs & people). Home made burgers were beautiful and enormous. Excellent value at 7. 50.

At 20 miles from home, may have found The Place! Only downside? Lots of sheep, so couldn't let dogs off leads.

Nice basic site. Lovely warm shower. Warm friendly welcome from the owners. The site overlooks Holmfirth and you can walk down into the village in about 20 minutes. It's a steep climb coming back and took us about 35 minutes. Would be happy to use this site again if we pass this way in the future. 10 without electric or 13 with.

Nice little five unit site with only three electric hook up points at present with plans for more. Grass field slightly sloping. Wet when we arrive and required a push from a most helpful owner. Basic but adequate toilet facilities. Lovely views, will be great in the summer. Eating is a mile down the hill in Holmfirth and probably a taxi ride back up. Will definitely visit again.

Lovely back to basics site close to Holmfirth. The site now has 2 toilets, pot wash (cold water only), a shower and 5 electric hooks ups with the owner planning on putting some more in.

Cheap as chips at 13 per night. It was very foggy during our stay but I'm pretty sure there would be stunning views over Holmfirth if it had cleared up. Short walk into town with nice local pubs. The owner was lovely and very accommodating and then left us to it. Will visit again.

Excellent position overlooking the town of holmfirth. Very pleasant and helpful owner. No toilets or shower when we were there but they are working on them, we didn't need them anyway as we use our own but there was water point and emptying facilities. Could have been cheaper than a tenner for what we needed but when it's properly up and running, if she still charges the same then, it will be very good site.
