  • Small, quiet well-maintained family farm site just outside Silkstone
  • Just off the Trans Pennine Trail and a few miles from Peak District
  • Pubs, supermarket and train station all within walking distance
Heading off into the countryside for a walk or two? Or perhaps hoping to ride bikes along quiet lanes? Stay at South Yorkshire’s Broad Close Farm, just outside the village of Silkstone, and you’ll be able to stroll (or pedal) straight out into woodlands or onto rural pathways. And there’s more… this small and well-maintained site is handy for getting out to or set out to see intriguing places like Pot House Hamlet and the historic site of the Huskar Pit disaster. The Silkstone Waggonway is close by for more cycling and strolling days, and more intrepid bike riders might like to note that this farm is just off the Trans Pennine Trail (roughly at its halfway point, in fact). And of course, the Peak District National Park is but a few miles away… If that all sounds a bit too energetic, you can instead tour the area by train from the local station (10 minutes’ walk away and part of the scenic Penistone line) or hail a bus from the village. All sorts of attractions are close by too, including farm parks, stately homes and the national coal mining museum. Being rural doesn’t mean being cut off around here: a walk of five minutes or so will get you up to the village for two pubs, a steak house and a small supermarket (perhaps to pick up supplies for an evening by the barbecue or campfire back at the farm?)

Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: Chilled atmosphere and friendly owner

Disliked: Fast road without gate between camping field and washing up and showers. Toilets and showers could do with cleaning better and shower drain blocked Neighbouring pitch with generator running spoilt the quiet.

Meadow View shepherd's hut (hot tub, no pets)

Liked: We absolutely loved our stay here. Everything was clean and well presented and the privacy fence around the hot tub made it feel like we were completely alone. The hot tub was amazing and heated up really quickly. We were given more than enough fire wood and the fire pit was lovely. Really close to an Asda and a lovely little farm shop on site! The bed was super comfortable and it was all really well priced. Will definitely be staying again.

Meadow View shepherd's hut (hot tub, no pets)

Liked: Great communication from the owner who made an effort to meet us at the hut and give us a guided tour and a quick run down on how everything works. We had a wonderful stay, enjoying a lovely walk around a local reservoir before we arrived. Absolute quality setting and facilities. You feel like you're alone in the middle of nowhere but also have a supermarket, pubs and places to eat within minutes in the car. Sitting in the wood fired hot tub, with the wind blowing the grasses in the field and watching a kestrel hovering overhead was amazing. Hopefully we'll be back one day, especially with other families as there's space for kids to play and the outward bound activity centre at the site too which looks brilliant.

Local attractions

This is a great area to explore for those with an interest in history – you’ll get a real feel for times gone by if you pack in outings to Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens (10 minutes’ drive), the National Coal Mining Museum for England (20 minutes) and the excellent Elsecar Heritage Centre (20 minutes), where you can see craft workshops, old ironworks and a steam railway. If you’d like to take in more of the area’s lovely views, head to Holmfirth (20 minutes), the epicentre of a network of great walking routes, or take a stroll around Wentworth Castle Gardens (10 minutes). For more of a challenge, it’s a half-hour drive to Bleaklow mountain; meanwhile, for a much easier ride, it’s 20 minutes to Kirklees Light Railway. And if your rural outing isn’t complete without some cute furry animals to coo over, you’ll need a trip to Cannon Hall Farm (10 minutes), which has an adventure playground and farm shop as well as lots of new farmyard friends to meet.
