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.

Good site - shame about fellow CAMC members

Site easy to find, warm welcome from wardens, good size pitches including serviced pitches. Lovely location with Country Park on doorstep and easily accessible. Pizza food van on Friday nights is great. Unfortunately when it comes to fellow CAMC members behaviour this is where the site lost it's appeal. There is no dog walking facilities on site, but there is a dog bin and a very short walk to the country park. that didn't make a difference to dog owner/s who thought it was acceptable to leave their dogs mess on the site driveway directly in front of our van and pitch! Each time I went to use the site toilet facilities I had to go into at least 3 different cubicles to find a toilet that was relatively clean and had been flushed after last persons use. We have stayed at lots of CAMC sites and never encountered such behaviour from fellow members. If this is usual behaviour on this site I feel really sorry for the wardens and disappointed in members. Because of this I probably wouldn't stay here again and will choose a site with dog walking area on site (not for my benefit but for other dog owners)

Very convenient for exploring Chesterfield and local area

We wanted a short trip as a first outing for the motorhome and I had always wanted to visit Bolsover Castle and the crooked spire in Chesterfield. The site is conveniently located for both and there is a bus which goes to Chesterfield from very near the site (plan carefully as it does go all round the houses and you need the 74 NOT the 74a). A pizza van serves delicious cooked while you wait pizzas on a Friday night and the lake and country park provides plenty of walking opportunities. If you go to Chesterfield, do visit the museum which shows how important this town was in the past. Coffee or lunch at Stephenson's nearby is a treat, especially on a rainy and blowy day.

Great Site, Friendly Staff

Our first outing of the year. Had a little difficulty with the unit and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Fair location but Staveley has little to capture the imagination. Chesterfield on the other hand was well worth the journey. And, please, please can the main club website show when a catering van will/should be onsite. It would be a definite aid to planning.

5 star site and Staff

First visit to this wonderful site, ideal for cycling and walking, facilities were spotless, Staff very helpful, However, some of the campers feel it's perfectly OK to leave the toilet bowl dirty, some seem unaware you can flush a toilet more than once to clean it and there's a brush in every cubical, My wife said the ladies toilets were terrible, why do they leave a mess for the wardens to clean, If you are one of the dirty so and so's reading this just think of the next visitor who uses the toilet.

1st ever trip out

First ever trip out in our caravan. Myself and my wife chose this park last minute just for 1 night to try out the caravan we had recently bought. The couple who were running it were lovely. I explained it was our first time and they were lovely. Not sure if all the clubsites are the same but what we were really impressed by was the cleanliness. It was top notch. Well done. Showers and facilities in the block were great. Will be back just for this. Lol Playground for the kids was ok, just outside the park entrance. We noticed they have a pizza van on a Friday. This will be great to know if .... when we come again. Thanks
