Had a long weekend in Caravan 3 in mid January. We were very pleased with the accommodation which was spotlessly clean, very well equipped with all the essentials, and it was exactly as described on the website.
Having read a disparaging review from Ian B I defend Shaw Farm vigorously. My husband has OCD and would have been the first to complain had anything been dirty within the caravan. I have lived in the country all my life and I consider that the working farm was both well ordered and organised.
George and Nicky were delightful and did all they could to make us welcome. They'd even put the heating on before we arrived which is something we have never encountered before. A lovely touch.
As it was mid January we expected the Peak District to be a bit chilly and we therefoe equipped ourselves appropriately. Had we been less hardy folk we would have booked one of the double glazed, centrally heated vans with underfloor insulation.
We really didn't want to leave, but we had to return to work. As soon as we can get more time off we will be booking our next trip to Shaw Farm.
Van 3 is an older van but it is beautifully maintained and it is an absolute bargain. The views are spectacular. We couldn't have asked for anything more for our money.
Thank you Nicky and George - we will return soon.
