Walking Holiday.

Blackwell Hall
An accessible site just off the A6. Good hard standing pitches. Great views. Even after heavy showers, drainage was good. Owner readly accessible and very pleasant. Although it did not worry us, the site is on the incoming flight path for Manchester airport and occassional flights into East Midlands were identified but mostly freight traffic. Being summer and with long light evenings plus at weekends, there was regular and noisy motor bikes using both the local road and the A6, again we did not let it worry us. What did concern us was the issue around the numbers of caravans/motorhomes using the site at any one time. During our stay, on one night there were 7 pitches occupied and 6 on 3 other separate nights. This over loading did not affect us directly but some occupants did have their views obstructed.

A wonderful site to stay on

Blackwell Hall
This is a very well placed site for people who love outstanding views.An easy site to access with lots of wonderful walks nearby. Good access from site using public transport. Many places to visit,including the walk across countryside to Chelmorton and finishing at the pub for a meal which was superb,but rather on the large side. Would definitely recommend this site if you like superb walks with outstanding scenery. Situated between Buxton and Bakewell makes for easy shopping and a good bus route close by.Would definitely recommend this site.

Fantastic views!

Blackwell Hall
We really enjoyed our three nights here. We choose the pitch furthest in on the right and the neighbours (sheep) were quite inquisitive at times, coming close to the fence to see us.Some great walks from the site, with the Monsale Trail being very close by, as well as some others more off the beaten track. We saw a sign only after we pitched up, asking us to book in at the house next door before selecting a pitch. So we didn’t see the site owners at all. We had to go and search them out to pay our dues on the second day. They ask that you post the money in a named envelope through the door, but we didn’t have one, so had to knock. This is a great site to be based from and I suspect we will be back quite soon.

Fab views, great walking...

Blackwell Hall
Great views from the caravan! We did a couple of walks, one from the site. This was a six miler to Chelmorton where we had a pint in the Church Inn. Landlady had to read the Riot Act to some thirty-somethings who hadn't heard of social-distancing! Only criticism of the site is that the grass hadn't been cut for several weeks, but that view...
