Reviewer: BryanB 1 review from this member

Have stayed several times over years. Core facilities very good but traffic noise now on some pitches near road can be very intrusive. Recently abandoned our stay because of it and no other pitch available, expecting to forfeit the site fees but they have been refunded. Very fair response as we did not ask for them back. Leaving was our choice.

A well appointed site with plenty of birdlife, but no views as the site itself, and each pitch, is enclosed by hedges. Good security, pay 10 for the barrier key. The owner/warden is helpful but insists on showing you everything when you want to get on your pitch and set up, better than no welcome at all though.

Everything you need shopping and fuel wise is nearby in the form of what must be one of the busiest Asdas in the country, you have to queue up to leave the car park!

Recycling is good, but there was nowhere to put plastic.

19 per night, but this price decreases for longer stays.

For doggy walks, there is Pugleys park just down the road, Walton Colliery nature park and several others.

It would also be useful as a stopover, only a mile or so from the M1.

Stayed here for a few months, excellent site, very clean and good facilities. It was clear that the site was very popular as many of the people who stayed there were regulars every year or two, from people with homes in Spain visiting for the Summer to locals who had moved away from the area and were back visiting friends and family. Excellent Pubs (The Star we especially liked - wet pub), a wine bar, Italian and Chinese restaurants all within easy walking distance or hop on a bus if lazy. The opposite way to Durkar there were more facilities already mentioned in other people's reviews. The pitches are separated with conifers, all hard standing and a well pegged awning will stay up in all weather. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful - above all they listened and responded to the people on the site which is a breath of fresh air. Security is very good and access with a large touring caravan is easy. The piped music in the shower block was a nice touch with stations which altered according to the day and time.

A well maintained site, excellent facilities. The pitches are very generous in size. Good security. Friendly and informative first meeting, we were shown the facilities and the pitch and left to it, which suits me fine.

There's a bus stop adjacent to the site but we choose to walk the 10mins to the Asda where it seems all the buses go to. Some nice walks in the area, all in a first class site.

Initial reactions to arrival at Broadlands Farm were - 'it's an industrial site!' Through the gates you are faced with a very large workshop looking building flanked by two ex-railway vans - used for storage. The yard, road and pitches were black crushed stone and probably colliery waste - not enhancing that initial impression. Driving round the back we found a double row of pitches - each big enough for a unit, awning and a vehicle, and tree screened, with a large patch of grass at one end. We had the pitch next to this which was pleasant.

The facilities are contained within the aforementioned big building. Access - both to the site and facilities is by way of a fob swiped on a wall mounted pad. You need a 10 deposit for the fob.

The facilities were adequate, despite the site being full, and were always clean.

The majority of units on site appear to be long term placements, so getting a touring pitch was probably quite lucky. People that we spoke to all seemed quite friendly.

There is a bus stop outside the site drive, with a regular service to Wakefield and Leeds. The M1 (jjNT. 29)is only a mile away. The A636 is half that and wil take you to Wakefield in one direction, and Summer Wine country in the other. TV reception is excellent.

There is a large 24/7 ASDA store about 3/4 mile towards Wakefield, whist Durkar village has a fish & chip shop and two pubs, We didn't try them. There is a large garden centre on the A636 road near the village.

All in all our initial surprise turned to satisfaction as we got used to the 'ambience' and we have 'bookmarked' Broadlands Farm for future reference.

Excellent clean toilets and showers, level pitches, good site security, friendly and helpful staff, great dishwashing facilities, washer and dryer too. Highly recommended. Very close to an ASDA supermarket, on a bus route. Chemical toilet disposal and fresh water readily available.

I have just returned from this nice little site with everything you need to make this a pleasant stay. Pitches are all a good size and level and all have16 amp EHU even TV reception is good, the toilets and showers are very clean. There is plenty to do around the area and it is all easy to get to. There are supermarkets nearby and access into Wakefield very easy ether by car or bus. Nick the owner was pleasant when booking in and Bernie was always there to help if needed. We will return to this site because there is still lots to see.

Reviewer: RIMMER 175 reviews from this member

Stayed here whilst alarm was fitted up the road at Rammobile. Although I found the site a little featureless the all hard standing pitches were large and secluded. Toilets/showers clean and functional with piped music. Barrier system in and out which gave a very secure feeling. Bus stop at end of drive to either Leeds or Wakefield. The village of Durkar can be walked to in about 10-15 mins which has two pubs(Red Kite and New Inn) and a chippie. Found the Red Kite to be quite upmarket with an extensive menu and a few real ales whilst the New Inn rather dowdy.

This is an excellent site with good facilities. The shower block and toilets were immaculate but were up two or three steps and this was not mentioned on the website. We may not have booked if this had been mentioned.

Apart from that everything is very good and near to bus stop and shops etc.

Lovely location and very friendly.

First visit to this site the toilet block was very clean and was cleaned regularly. It is described as adults only but there were a couple of caravans with kids, there doesn't appear to be any facilities for children. Close to Wakefield and several tourist attractions such as Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Xscape and Sandal Castle. There is an Asda Superstore about half mile away as well as several pubs and restaurants. We had a good meal at the Swan and Cygnet, Rinaldis is also very good. The site has a dog walk. The owner was really helpful and friendly. It seems a very popular site, it took us three attempts to get a pitch. We will definitely return.
