Feedback from the:
Yorkshire Region Meet. Wetherby. 27-30 June 2024

Mardi Gras Parade Winners: South Yorkshire DA
Roz & Eileen and all the SYDA team would like to thank all the mums, dads, Nannas, grandads (+ the great nannas and Grandads) and all the children that took part in the Yorkshire Region Meet Mardi Gras parade. This includes all of the hard working people that helped to put on such a good show by making the costumes and those adults and children that were brave enough to wear the costumes.
It was great to see that we had such a great bunch of talented people getting together to put on such a great show.

You made SYDA the winning group so a BIG THANK YOU to everybody that was involved.

Thurs 5th to Sun 8th Sept. £9.50 p.u.p.n.



This camp site is on the road to the Cannon Hall Farm (As seen on TV) on the outskirts of Cawthorne village.


Look out for the Killamarsh Farm entrance to the site on the left as you travel towards Cannon Hall along Bark House Lane from the A635. When you have turned in to the entrance, drive over the cattle grid and through the gateway. Drive along the tarmac surface through the first small storage field. Take the left gate entrance at the end of the tarmac on to the camping field. The site is sloping grass with no hard standing. (Levelling blocks may be required) 

There is a converted barn type room for socials in the top corner of the site. This room was used as a handy viewing room for an England football match on our visit to Cawthorne in July this year.


​The Cannon Hall estate boasts a Garden Centre and Bistro 5 minutes walk from the THS. Five minutes drive from the THS, there is a Hall and grounds, with indoor adventure play area, an Animal farm, (Entrance fee payable...should be booked in advance), a shop, a garden, and cafes.
