Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park is a peaceful place to spend your holidays in Yorkshire. It is open all year and with pitch fees starting at only £9, this is a holiday destination that can be enjoyed by everyone, at any time. And being dog friendly, you can bring your four-legged friend, too.
This is a family run campsite close to a popular town. It has a friendly feel and there's acres of land to explore whether with children, a dog or alone.
Touring caravans, motorhomes and tents are all welcome to pitch at Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park in West Yorkshire. There are 62 pitches, of which 12 are hardstanding, and all have 16A electric hook-ups. If you need help pitching, there are plenty of members of staff to assist. Seasonal pitches can be accommodated, too.
In terms of on site amenities at this campsite, the washblock has toilets, showers (which are free to use), basins and disabled facilities. A great feature is the family bathroom – you'll be charged £3.50 for 45 minutes, but it can be hired for longer periods. This is a luxury for grown ups and somewhat of an essential for those with little ones for whom bathtime is part of the daily routine. Underfloor heating will keep little tootsies warm. But in general, the campsite's washblock is modern and clean, with vibrant tiles and in the showers is a shelf to keep clothing away from the water.
After a muddy walk, you won’t want to keep dirty clothes in the van so make use of the laundry room. There’s a washing up room too, but if you want to take in the views as you do the dishes, head to the al fresco washing up area. There is also a chemical disposal point. Campfires are not permitted.
There are two play area for little ones, but there’s plenty of room for children to get out on their bikes, build dens or play football.
The campsite also has a really well stocked shop, full of your holiday essentials: think milk, bread and locally produced gifts. In addition, there’s an off licence, so if you want a bottle of wine or a beer with dinner, you're in luck. You’ll also find reception here and plenty of local tourist information.
At Holme Valley, the fishing lake takes centre stage and as you would expect, this is one of the main attractions – book early to ensure a lakeside pitch.
The approach to Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park is quite narrow so do take care as you have to enter via a single track. There’s no barrier and while it's ideal to arrive in the daytime, should you arrive after reception has closed, call the number listed there and a member of staff will arrive to show you to your pitch.
The site is about a 30-minute walk from the village of Holmfirth, famed for being the location of Last of the Summer Wine. Here you’ll find an abundance of restaurants, shops, a supermarket and plenty of pubs, many of which have live music at the weekends. A bus stop outside the campsite means you can leave the car on the pitch if you want to head out for the day. And it will only take around 20 minutes to drive to Huddersfield or an hour to get to Sheffield by car, if you need a bigger town. And of course the Peak District National Park is on your doorstep when pitched at Holme Valley, with plenty to explore.
