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. Easily accessible and conveniently located from the M1 motorway, the site is conveniently placed for stopover visits.

Our second visit to this site this year. It’s perfect if you want to relax in clean, peaceful surroundings. The country park is lovely to walk round. The staff at the site are friendly and helpful, the site is clean and tidy. We will be coming back next year

Fabulous

We received a smile and 'welcome' as we walked into the reception which was really appreciated after a long drive. It was a flying 1 night stopover, but made very comfortable on a well laid out service pitch and use of pristine and warm shower and wash room facilities.

Good site especially for a stop over.

Stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting family further south. A very nice site with great facilities and located just off M1 and right beside the Tans Pennine Trail, so great walking. We used the fly serviced pitch, which as novice caravaners we found made life so much easier with no requirement to refill water barrels of dispose of grey waste. We were a little disappointed with the help from the lone member of staff we dealt with when asking for how to get to the Chesterfield Canal. We were directed to the information room, when all the perps had to say was go out the gate and turn right along the footpath beside the gate!! However we will no doubt be back again a very nice place to stay.

The First

Well what can we say except this is the FIRST review we have made in 3 years of being novice caravanners!! Whilst normally we stay on Adult Only CL sites we found ourselves at this family site which we had only booked the day before. After being stuck on the motorway for an hour we were given an extremely warm welcome by Julie & Andrew who explained all we needed to know about the site and equally as important what this part of Derbyshire had to offer. The cleanliness of this site and happy, friendly faces of our hosts made this short stay one which really left us with a warm glow on a chilly October visit. Really a site you must stay at if you want to explore this historic part of Derbyshire. Andrew & Julie ( no relation to the wardens, honest)

Everything I want and more

Spent three nights, 19-22 October 2018 at Poolsbrook, my fourth time at this site. This time I had a serviced pitch, only because all the other pitches were booked, but I’m not complaining! I love everything about this site; handy for the M1, located in a Country Park, the excellent Trans Pennine Trail on its’ doorstep, spacious pitches, spotlessly clean facilities, friendly wardens, no playground so few children....perfect. Cycled along the trail all the way to the Rother Valley Country Park, had a gin by the water skiing lake, and cycled back. Other cycle trails, woods and paths going off in all directions. And the icing on the cake..? The weather, for mid October it was wonderful, sunny and mild.
