Why stay here ...

You will be delighted by Poolsbrook Country Park Club Site - situated at the heart of the 165-acre Poolsbrook Country Park, it was previously the location of an active colliery. The land has now been magnificently transformed into an extensive country park, including a children's adventure play area, visitor centre, cafe for refreshments and many well stocked lakes for fishing. There are also many trails to explore, be it by foot, by cycle or with your dog, with the added bonus that the caravan park adjoins the Trans-Pennine Trail.

Poolsbrook Country Park Club Site uses a number of sustainable resource and energy features, making it an appealing destination for the environmentally aware concerned with kindness to our planet. The caravan site is also just 2 miles south of Staveley town centre, where you can absorb the area's industrial heritage. The entire area offers the opportunity to observe the interesting local wildlife - it is rich with a large variety of birds and animals, which will provide nature lovers with plenty to see while caravanning in Derbyshire. Easily accessible and conveniently located from the M1 motorway, the site is conveniently placed for stopover visits.

Great for walks and bird life

Right within Pools Brook Country Park with café, several lakes and woods - all pretty nice, but with large pylons running through, and a feel of a post-industrial site only recently reclaimed. Will mature nicely. Close to Rother Valley and an old railway line for cycling. Site is nicely landscaped and laid out, medium sized, well run and good.

What a little gem!!

This was our first time staying at the Poolsbrook site and what a lovely time we had. The wardens could not have been more helpful. The site is very well laid out, plenty of space on each pitch, it is quiet and backs onto a lovely country park so lots of lovely walks straight from the site and is very dog-friendly. 

A lovely surprise was the pizza van which is on site on Fridays - we pitched up in the evening, ordered our pizza and 30 mins later were sitting outside our van enjoying our takeaway!! 

We will definitely be returning!!

Highly recommend..first stay but definitely not the last

First time to Poolsbrook..easily accessible...we travelled from near Durham and it was easy to get to. Easy, safe check in...only one person in Reception at a time.....sign ignored sometimes by other guests but wardens quick to politely remind them. Having never visited this site, unsure of best pitches. Couldn’t have got a better one...28....great for sun morning and night and near to service point. Only thing we will say is that if you have young children there is some noise at night...mainly at the weekends...from the country park behind. From the noise, it sounds like young locals...revving of engines etc., but didn’t spoil our stay and obviously out of the hands of CMC. We stayed a full week, even adding on an extra day as it was the bank holiday and it was still available. Highly recommend you take bikes if you have them...but loads of lovely walks. Visit the canal basin at Staveley...lovely quiet walk but also nice walks round the country park...loads of birds....we managed to see a family with 5 fluffy goslings and a Moorhen with 7 babies!! First time I have used laundry facilities....spotless and only one person or one household allowed at a time 👍. Also have never used onboard shower....only had caravan since October 2019....for those hesitant to use their ‘own’ facilities, we would say “go for it”. Pizza van on a Friday...fresh tasty stone baked...highly recommend. Wardens really friendly and helpful. Met loads of people but only got to know their dogs names. Shout out to Buddy and also another Buddy and the gorgeously huge fluffy Doris 😃😃. Highly recommend this site and the fact it is open all year means we will definitely be back later in the year.

First outing of the season to visit family

This site was perfect situated to see family. First impressions was good, staff were very helpful and the site clean and tidy. The site was nearly full but very peaceful. Located just near the country park and my only negative would be the boy racer revving their engines, wheel spinning near the location but this isn't the sites fault. Would visit again.

Lovely location and site

This was our first, rather nervous, trip, in our first ever motorhome and can honestly say it could not have been better, or raised our confidence more. The site is spotlessly clean, sorted for Covid, welcoming and well kitted out. We were given our choice of stand, clear instructions on what we had to do and information about the site and surroundings. All the facilities were very clean, modern, and the grounds were spotless, not a drop of litter. It is very close to Pools Brook Country Park, so excellent for walks, cycling and there is a cafe very nearby (although we didn't visit that). A bus stop within a ten minute walk took us into Chesterfield, which is worth a visit, especially in the sun that we experienced. There is also a good walk to Staveley where shops and pubs can be found. We also want to say a thank you to the more experienced caravanners and motorhomers who were welcoming and supportive and make us glad we joined and took the plunge. Can't wait for the next trip!
