Why stay here ...

Lakeside Meadow is a beautiful grassed 5 acre site, with its own lake (no fishing). It is approached from the road by a gated access onto a private drive. The driveway extends behind each pitch (with the exception of pitch 1) allowing you to drive straight onto your allocated pitch. Each pitch is hardstanding and has its own EHU and water supply along with a grey waste disposal point. There is an undercover chemical waste disposal and bin area.

We have our main lake along with 3 smaller ponds, bridges and views out over the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Dogs are welcome. We do ask that they are kept on a lead at all times whilst on site and please clean up after them.

There are 2 local pubs within a mile of Lakeside, both are excellent, serving food and drinks. The Yew Tree is in Ednaston village and the Red Lion in Hollington village, which is located by turning left out of Lakeside Meadow. The Saracens Head, in the neighbouring village of Shirley is renowned for it's wonderful menu and cuisine.

The village of Brailsford with it's post office, village shop, cafes and pub along with a number of quirky independent shops located at Saracens Head Yard, is 2 miles away.

The picturesque town of Ashbourne is just 6 miles away, with its winding cobbled streets, market place and Tudor & Georgian heritage, along with more than 200 listed buildings. Browse the many antique shops, designer fashion stores and individual retailers, before enjoying a well deserved coffee, lunch or afternoon tea in one of the many cafes and tea rooms. Or maybe enjoy a drink or 2 in the local pubs or wine bar.

Ashbourne is known as The Gateway to Dovedale, home to the iconic stepping stones and part of the Peak District National Park. Britain's first park, formed in 1951.

If the bright lights of the city are more your thing, the City of Derby is just 10 miles away, the UK's most central city. Here you will find a large Intu shopping centre with all the usual retailers you would expect. Or you can explore the Cathedral quarter and enjoy the numerous independent shops and see Derby's Gothic cathedral. Or maybe pay a visit to the Derby Brewing Company. Derby is home to many, many small pubs and micropubs.

After all your exploring, return to Lakeside Meadow to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Derbyshire countryside.

Great CL

Have just completed another two week stay at this fantastic site. The staff at the site office, David and Lynne, were excellent and very helpful and helped to make our stay wonderful. The site is peaceful, quiet and with fully serviced pitches this place is outstanding. The owners, Tim and Jill have made this like a parkland with fire pit and picnic tables for the five caravans. Cannot rate this high enough, well done! We have already booked two weeks for next year.

Excellent CL

We have just returned home from this great little CL, what a find it was. As you turn onto the drive way in it soon opens up into an extremely beautiful lakeside large grassed area. We were met shortly after arrival by a very pleasant gentleman who told us where to find everything & the local walks etc. It was probably the best CL that we have found up to yet, it was lovely & peaceful & we can thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The owner was very helpful when I realised that the normal departure time was 10.30 but we were heading on to Chatsworth club site so we couldn’t get in until 1pm, I rang him & he happily agreed that we could depart any time before 12pm which was a great help to us for our onward journey. We will certainly plan to revisit in the near future.

Just what we were waiting for

After weeks of Lockdown we just wanted to get away. Whilst in lockdown I have trawled through the website - site after site. We have never used our caravan's shower always opting for sites with facilities but as things stood we realised that going down the CL route may now be our best option. Our first break Lakeside Meadow, Ednaston, has won us over. A beautiful peaceful site. Lots of scenery on the site, gorgeous trees and lots of bird life. The large lake with the enormous fish. This site shows that the owners Tim and Jill really care about their customers. They have got the measure right. Each pitch ehu, water and waste a good telephone and tv signal. From the moment you enter the private drive you can feel that this site is something special. 10 out of 10 in our books and we've been to some of the most exclusive all singing and dancing sites. The personal touch, a great space, fresh air. Well done we will be back - no mistake....

We have just had a wonderful stay at Lakeside which is the most beautiful, peaceful and fantastic site. The owners, Tim and Jill are very helpful and this must rate as the best CL in England. We would happily recommend this to everyone.

THE best CL site we have ever visited

Lakeside meadow CL has to be in contention for CL of the year, access is fantastic, set well back from the road, local to numerous beautiful scenic places to visit during your stay. The site itself is immaculate and is a credit to the owners. My wife and I and our little maltichon absolutely loved it. There are walls around the lake where if you want to can make friends with the ducks, geese and not forgetting the shoals of carp (that all like to be fed) we will definitely be returning to Lakeside in the not too distant future. Well done to Tim and Jill for making the site what it is.
