A lovely CL with a view.

Blackwell Hall
We booked this last minute for 1 night in Oct 2021 and were lucky they had space left. Its a fantastic CL and we will return if in the area! The hard standing sites are fairly level with no worries about getting bogged down and views out are lovely. The site is well laid out and notices at the entrance made it clear where the water, grey and black disposal points are and how to pay, We didn't see the owner but no need. We had read about a bridlepath from the site to the Monsal trail but it was tricky to find! We ended up cycling down a very long hill to Millers dale to access the cycle trail and then on the return journey we cycled along the Blackwell cycle shop end and found a very steep rocky bridlepath which ended up being a path back, but we had to push the bikes uphill for about 1/4 mile before it levelled out enough to cycle it back to Blackwell (just over a mile). Probably easier to drive and upload the bikes at the car park access next time though!!

Peaceful CL within Peak District

Blackwell Hall
Enjoyed a week at Blackwell Hall which is a quiet CL situated in the Peak District with extensive views. All pitches are gravelled to allow for year round touring. The Monsal Trail is only a mile away via a bridleway (walk past the commercial site) for those who enjoy walking and cycling. There is plenty to see and do in the locality, so fully recommend a stay here.

One of the best!

Blackwell Hall
We've spent nearly 2,000 nights caravanning, the vast majority of those nights on CL's. Our seven night stay at Blackwell Hall Farm CL ranks amongst the top five of all the CL's we've ever stayed on in 40 plus years caravanning. Why? It's a neat, tidy, well kept site with excellent views and Christine is a very helpful, interested and very interesting owner. There's a good dog walk, the site drains well, the facilities are user friendly, there's a pub / eatery in Taddington - a good walk or a short drive away. What more do you need for a cracking, relaxing holiday? We'll be back!

Wonderful week

Blackwell Hall
We have had our first experience of staying at Blackwell Hall, what a gem of a site. Located well away from any roads and offering great views combined with peace and tranquility even though it is a working farm. We met the owner shortly after arriving, a very pleasant, welcoming lady and a delight to chat to. The location of the site gives easy access to many of the Peak districts most popular destinations. We look forward to many more visits.

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.
