Environmentally Friendly Holidays at Shaw Farm

At Shaw Farm Static Caravan park we try to be environmentally responsible and have worked over the years to reduce our impact on the environment both on the farm and in our Static Caravan accommodation. In 2012 we started producing renewable electricity from our own Solar Panels and support other renewable energy schemes accross the country

The Static Caravans

We provide recycling boxes in each of the caravans to make recycling as easy as possible for you. We collect:

We have fitted low energy LED light bulbs in the caravans and also ask you to turn lights, taps and heating off when not in use. Caravans 5 and 6 are equipped with double glazing and full insulation to prevent heat loss and reduce energy use. The full central heating systems are more efficient than the electric heaters in the older vans.

Public Transport

New Mills has excellent train links and we encourage guests to use this service especially if visiting Manchester (it is quicker and cheaper than driving!). We are located up-hill from New Mills, a 30-45 minute walk from the station which means we cannot expect people to stay without bringing their car. However there are lots of taxi services in New Mills. Please see Public Transport page for more details.

On your arrival we are happy to pick you up from the train station and get groceries in for you if wish to leave your car at home or are visiting from abroad. Please contact us to confirm details in advance. If you are visiting without a car we will provide bed linen and towels free of charge.

See the area by foot

The area is excellent for walking and cycling with lots of footpaths over our land and many bridle ways in the area. You can easily spend several days exploring the area without needing to get in your car. Be warned though, the area is hilly so cycling around here will definitely keep you fit! We provide a box outside each van for boots and muddy clothes and there are facilities to wash off bikes and store them inside.

Cycle Hire

Peak Tours offer a cycle hire and delivery service to anywhere in the Peak District from £15 per bike plus £10 delivery charge. Please visit Peak Tours cycle hire for more details.
