Lovely place....

Blackwell Hall
This is a lovely place. Peaceful. Beautiful views. Great access to walks - you can literally walk through the neighbouring farmyard and across the hills down to Cheedale or take a slightly longer route down the lane, past the bigger campsite. Easy to reach too - our first time towing as we have just made the switch from campervan to caravan. Friendly owner. Couple of tips: if you like Thai food, it's only 10 mins to Simply Thai in Buxton. Great for eating in or a takeaway. Not far to Bakewell either if you fancy a tart! If you like eggs, there's a farm selling them just down the lane with an honesty box. The larger campsite nearby also has a shop and cafe open to everyone so you can have the best of both worlds - stay at Blackwell Hall's lovely peaceful CL but use of a close shop and cafe should you need it. We would definitely like to stay here again. Only downside for us on this occasion was that we had very little mobile phone signal so couldn't get online. Bit tricksy as we were rather reliant on being able to google the things we couldn't figure out in our new caravan but it won't be an issue for us next time.

Peak perfect

Blackwell Hall
This has to be one of the best locations in the whole of the Peak District. We were lucky enough to be able to move onto the lower end pitch. From here the views for 270’ were absolutely amazing, possibly the best I have had anywhere in the UK in nearly 40 years of doing campsites. Easy access to the Monsal trail, perfect for cycling to Bakewell. There is a nasty hill from the trail back to the site if you are cycling that bit, but no problem with our power assisted bikes. A lovely walking round of Chee Dale passes within metres of the site taking you through some spectacular gorges and scenery. We enjoyed our first ever visit to Chatsworth house before we arrived which was not far to travel afterwards. All in all a wonderful 4 nights, I would definitely hope to return one day.

Best short break in a while!

Blackwell Hall

This was our first visit to a CL site and we now believe it's the only option for us! We stayed over the Easter weekend with our family, inclusing the dog & had a fabulous time. We never came Into contact with the owner Christine however all required information was communicated prior and a polite notice repeating the info on site. Facilities are at a minimum like most CL's seem to be however offering of a TV point was a welcome bonus as the top few pitches struggle for own signal. It was a pleasent surprise to find an honesty daily refreshed home baked cake stall, they were yummy!! The site is a cute little spot, surprisingly peaceful and quiet given its just off one of the main road links around the peaks.We will definitely be re-visiting and most likely staying here again as everything is within reach! Most enjoyable trip away in a long time :)

Stunning site

Blackwell Hall
Stunning scenery and ease of access to beautiful walks (albeit often challenging and steep!) are the main plusses of this site. Easy to get to off the A6 it is quite a compact site but has everything you require for a wonderful stay. It slopes slightly from side to side so a ramp is recommended. The hard standings are adequate and the Elsen Point well sited away from pitches and of a good, clean standard. We visited in early April and the weather, although bright, was chilly with frequent hail and snow flurries so take warm and waterproof clothing at this time of year. The site has wonderful panoramic views and it was really good to wake up to these each morning when opening the caravan blinds. It would have been useful to have some information about walks from the site and especially access to the Monsal Trail available on site but this wasn't a deal breaker. It is conveniently situated for visits to Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. We will definitely be back to the Peak District and would definitely consider returning to Blackwell Hall too.

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!!
