Broad Close Farm: Rules

General

  • 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

Broad Close Farm is a small, well-maintained site on a South Yorkshire farm just outside the village of Silkstone and around 10 minutes’ drive from Barnsley.

This is a great rural location for those seeking places to walk or ride bikes: you can stroll directly from the farm into woodlands and green countryside, or set out to see places like Pot House Hamlet and the historic site of the Huskar Pit disaster. The Silkstone Waggonway is close by for cyclists and walkers, 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 local 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?)

Please note

Units longer than 7 metres are not allowed.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

Lovely, friendly, clean site.11/26/2021

    Our 2nd time to the Farm now and we love it, great sized, spaced apart pitches with a few firepits to use. We haven't used the showers yet but the toilets are always perfectly clean. Both times we stayed I can't say I've heard any traffic noise that I would notice, always pretty quiet. Local petrol station + supermarket and a few walks around if wanted. Jonathan has even levelled the pitches out down the slight hill which is nice and allows for clear spacing of tents.

    Stayed here with my 7 year old friend in lieu of a hotel for a visit to Leeds.

    Only needed a place to park the van for a night, however I’d happily stay here longer.

    Facilities were spotless I’ve stayed at a fair few campsites and toilets/showers is always the sticking point. The toilets and showers here were great, no mould nice and clean and plenty of room in the shower rooms to get changed.

    The free pool table was a bonus too!
    Would happily stay here for longer.

    Disliked: 

    No playground for kids, however I knew this before I booked and wasn’t an issue in the slightest. If I’m perfectly honest we wouldn’t have been able to us it anyway. Just thinking of longer stays during summer.

    Only thing I could suggest is that the entrance should be gated in order to limit the risk of small children trying to cross the road.
