This small hardstanding park at the edge of Little Hollins Wood at Greenhead House Farm, is positioned on the route of the 2014 Tour de France with access directly on to Oughtibridge Lane, and is five miles from Fox Valley.
The site keeps free-range hens, rare breed pigs and pygmy goats and has a plentiful supply of fresh eggs. Guests can collect eggs and feed the animals, when the owners are around.
The campsite is ideal for a no-frills overnight stay and is equipped with basic facilities including a single unisex toilet with sink near the farmhouse.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
Great for overnight stays just outside a lovely little village.
From the manager...
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review following your overnight stay. Feedback is always appreciated.
We fully agree that we are not a fully functioning campsite, rather a hard standing area next to the farm. We use the hard standing as a carpark and you are quite correct in your description.
We hope we have made it clear on the description that it is a no frills overnight stay with just a toilet and hand wash sink. We don't have other facilities or entertainment. Where possible we do offer guests the opportunity to come and see the animals, and were pleased you were able to come and see the new born goat that morning. In light of your rating will review the description to make sure we have made it clear to customers what they are booking.
We hope that the price reflects the 'no frills' approach and were pleased that one of the things you liked was the price. Although a little surprised the value money rating was 4/10.

The site entrance leads directly into the hardstanding area. Sat Nav will take you 100 yards down the road. Head back up the hill and the site is on the right just before the 'Oughtibridge' stone.
Greenhead House Farm is half a mile to the east of Oughtibridge up a steep hill, known locally as Jawbone Hill. More recently known as Cote de Oughtibridge, it was one of the main climbs in the 2014 Tour de France. Across the road is the training ground of Steve Peat and some of the finest mountain biking in the area.
Sheffield city centre is just over five miles away and easily accessible from Oughtibridge by bus and Sheffield's own Supertram. Ideally located for city centre events such as tramlines, Sheffield Theatres and the World Snooker Championships. Meadowhall is also within reach by public transport. Please note: the walk into Oughtibridge by road will take you over a narrow bridge where great care must be taken. An alternative woodland walk avoids the bridge. The return trip, while only half a mile, is a steep climb.
Oughtibridge has four excellent pubs serving local beers and good food, an Italian restaurant and a Chinese takeaway. There are two village convenience stores, a newsagent and a post office. A lovely park is located centrally and has a play area, basketball nets, a tennis court and picnic tables.
The River Don, which runs alongside the park, is the outdoor base to the Sheffield Canoe Club. Some of the finest mountain biking of the region is very close to here, such as Wharncliffe Woods, a steep and rocky wood that's been home to the mountain biking scene for a number of years and is famed for its super technical rocky drops.
Many horse riding and walking trails in the woods: Wharncliffe Woods is just one of many woods and green spaces that surround the campsite; the 2015 BBC programme Jericho, was filmed in nearby woodland, and the popular Trans Pennine Trail is a two-minute walk down the road.
