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.

Excellent site for walking & cycling

Stayed for a weekend in October. Site is really well set out and very good for cycling or walking around the country parks or on the Trans Pennine Way which you can access from the site entrance. Staff are informative & friendly and paid attention to keeping all public areas well cleaned on constantly refreshed with disinfectant spray.

Great location for walking and cycling

We spent 4 nights here in September. The site is well laid out and almost manicured grass. Unfortunately our pitch was not drained properly and when it rained heavily we had quite deep standing water across the full hard standing pitch onto the road. That aside the site is very good with extremely good facilities which were spotlessly clean, as you would expect. The wardens were helpful and engaging. The best thing about this site is it's location. Outside the site is the Poolsbrook country park with a walk around the lake, children's play equipment, toilets and a café that even has free Wi-Fi and some very good drinks/food. I understand from someone who knows it is good for the visiting birds. Then immediately outside you have access to the Trans Pennine Train where you can walk or cycle on a dedicated path. It also joins up to the Chesterfield Canal at Staveley where you can walk the tow path to Chesterfield with 2 cafes along the way. All in all excellent for walking and cycling. Staveley is a small, once mining, town with an array of pubs, eateries and a Morrisons supermarket with car park suitable for Motorhomes and fuel. It is about a 20 minute walk from the site and right by the canal.

Perfect Poolsbrook

Had a last minute weekend break here in our camper. Super location with the country park on the doorstep and Staveley a short 10 minute walk away for shops & market. Super facilities on site - nice modern toilet & amenities block. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful site

Haven't been here for four years and stopped for an overnight here on journey south. Still a wonderful site, beautifully kept, spotlessly clean and tidy. Great for walking and cycling. Must say a big thank you to the warden Margaret for her welcome, help and kindness. How lucky the Club are to have a gem of a warden. Will return again.

Great site, perfect for relaxation

This was our first trip away in our new motorhome. From check in we felt safe and looked after. All the other guests were friendly and helpful if we asked them for any tips. The shower and toilet block were exceptionally clean and we really did feel that everything was being done to protect us from COVID. We were only there for one night so did not really explore the surrounding area well. There is a good Morrisons store a walk away in Staveley however we would not necessarily recommend pubs in Staveley and found it difficult to find somewhere to eat. We would definitely recommend the site.
