Caravan rental in South Yorkshire provides inexpensive accommodation for mini breaks or annual holidays in what some may feel is an unlikely setting.

However, South Yorkshire has changed dramatically over recent years.  From the industrial county it once was, it has transformed into a veritable 21st-century playground! Visitors can enjoy musical, cultural and sporting pursuits with passion.  You can shop till you drop in an area which has some of the best shopping in the whole of the UK. Take the family out to a comprehensive range of attractions or dance the night away in nightclubs that cater to all tastes in music.

Steeped in history, museums, historic monuments and Gothic architecture abound. They offer a mix of ancient and modern that is difficult to find in any other part of the UK.


If you go for a caravan rental holiday in South Yorkshire you cannot fail to appreciate the pride the locals take in their county.  It has often been said that a Yorkshireman has a stronger identity in his county than he does in his country. These people are indeed a rare breed.  They are incredibly friendly although often opinionated leading to a well-known colloquialism that “You can always tell a Yorkshireman, but you can’t tell him much”.

Food and Drink

Most people have sampled Yorkshire pudding. But this traditional part of the English Sunday roast surprisingly is eaten before the main meal.  In harder times, a Yorkshire pudding eaten before the meal would fill you up. So you didn’t want as much meat which was expensive and not affordable in vast quantities.

If you have a sweet tooth you will appreciate some of the delightful sweet dishes that are traditionally made in South Yorkshire. These include Parkin which is a ginger cake made from oatmeal and treacle, gingerbread, liquorice Pontefract cakes and Yorkshire rhubarb triangle washed down with traditional ginger beer. If you prefer some real Yorkshire ale try Copper Dragon, Tetley’s, Black Sheep and John Smith’s to name a few.


Exploring South Yorkshire is a joy, with awe-inspiring landscapes that will take your breath away.  Whether you are a walker or a rock climber you cannot fail to be impressed by the Peak District National Park. This Conservation Area spans 555 m2 over several different counties.

There are lots of windmills to admire as you make your way through quaint hamlets and market towns. If you are not the energetic type, take a journey on one of the steam railways.

Step back in time to the 18th century on a visit to Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet and watch steel workers ply their trade.
