Barnsley - Camping & Motohome Guide


Famous as a market town, Barnsley has a long history dating back to the Doomsday book. Historically, the name is believed to have come from ‘Beorn’s ley’ – meaning a place belonging to Beorn. It once was a well-known coal mining town, as it is at the heart of the South Yorkshire coalfield, but these days the markets prevail.

Famous people from Barnsley include Michael Parkinson, Arthur Scargill and author of Chocolat, Joann Harris.


Attractions in Barnsley

Cannon Hall

An ideal place to start if you have several generations together on your trip is Cannon Hall. It is an imposing stately home, which was developed to its striking standards in the 18th Century by the Spencer family.

It is treat for history-lovers, and all the family will enjoy the carefully thought out attractions within its gates.  


A Fairytale and a Cottage Garden

It is the ideal location if you fancy a picnic in idyllic surroundings – the grounds have been landscaped to reflect a fairytale scene – with waterfalls, follies and stunning vistas. The Fairyland Garden is ideal for children to play.

Created in the late 19th Century, it has been imaginatively designed and created using unusual materials, such as the arches of nearby churches! Fish ponds, enticing paths and stone bridges all await young explorers.

Cannon Hall also boasts a delightful walled cottage garden, with a selection of fruiting plants and vegetables which would have been found in a working garden of the Georgian period.




The Military Museum

The Regimental Museum of the 13th/18th Royal Hussars and the Light Dragoons lives permanently at Cannon Hall, and this is a must-see for anyone interested in military history. 


Cannon Hall Farm Petting Farm

Visitors large and small will enjoy a trip to the petting farm where you can get to know a friendly collection of farm animals and domestic pets. If children need to burn off a bit of energy they can enjoy the onsite adventure playground with a stimulating range of activities.

Cannon Hall is open 7 days a week, entry is free, and the car park costs £3 a day.
