High Lea Farm Camping is based in Penistone, South Yorkshire. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, we have fantastic bike routes and a great range of walks on the doorstep, including the Trans-Pennine Trail. The site welcomes tents, campervans and caravans.

(Please mention

High Lea Farm is a family-run working milk farm. Being in such a wonderful, rural location we decided to open up one of our fields and turn it into a camp site.

The site has access to the main road, but is nice and quiet with amazing views over the small countryside town of Penistone.

There are 25 grass pitches suitable for tents, caravans and motorhomes, with a number of electric hook-ups available.

The site is open from mid April to mid September, though dates are flexible according to the ground conditions.

Our campsite is on the A629 between Sheffield and Huddersfield, about a quarter of a mile from Hoylandswaine Roundabout towards Sheffield. If coming this way you will pass a red snack cabin, then one layby on either side of you. The gate to the campsite is the next right after the layby on your right. If you are using a satnav to find us please put in Steep Lane.

Those accessing the campsite by public transport have the options of buses from Barnsley and Sheffield. Train services run from Manchester, Huddersfield, Sheffield and Barnsley, giving us good network links from all over the country.

Facilities include male and female toilets and showers, as well as fresh drinking water.

Grass pitches

25 x Grass Pitches

Grass pitches with more space than average, giving you plenty of room. Optional electric hook-ups available.

There is plenty to do around the area, especially for walkers and cyclists. Walking trails vary from flat and gentle strolls to challenging hill climbs, with routes including the Penistone Boundary walk, Barnsley Boundary walk, Kirklees Way and Pennine Way.

There are a number of reservoirs close by too, with a five reservoir challenge taking in the most fantastic scenery and wildlife.

We are also close to the Trans-Pennine Trail, which leads to several of the surrounding villages - and on the doorstep of the recent Tour de France route.

A private indoor swimming pool is available at Willow Lodge, just around the corner from the campsite. The local ice cream parlour Yummy Yorkshire is 2-3 miles up the road, with a good café and regular functions held there.

Cannon Hall Farm and Museum is around 5 miles from the campsite which is great day out for the family. As is Yorkshire Sculpture Park (about 9 miles away) where you can see the many exhibitions of artwork and sculptures.
