About Property Manager
After many years in the Tourism and Catering Industries, Instead of retiring Harry and Carole Johnson set up the Camping & Caravan Park in 2012 on the derelict site of the old Woodend Colliery abandoned in 1959. When clearing the site many artefacts related to the Coal Industry were found and now the Mining Museum contains one of the most extensive collections of Coal Mining Memorabilia in the UK, attracting visitors from all over the world. The site is also home to many rescued animals and birds, there are eight Shetland Ponies to feed and pet, together with Parrots, Canaries, Budgies, Turkeys, Hens and Ducks and Ben the lovable Black Lab insists on greeting every guest. The site has gone from strength to strength and is now home to The Lamp Room Cafe, serving meals and snacks all day, and this year we have added four Glamping units to the site, which offer high quality accommodation to discerning guests. We now also have Site Managers Keith and Debbie who are here all summer, so there is always someone onsite if you need anything, and Keith runs his own residential Wood Turning courses from his purpose built Cabin on the Farm, he also has many superb items for sale in the cafe.
