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.

Long weekend of leisure

Wow what a lovely level site well cared for. Heavy rain overnight did not leave us wading through large deep puddles. Wardens were friendly and cared. Toilet and showers were clean and all working, just be wary they close 10.30. - 12 noon for cleaning. Access to the site was very easy and no single track roads. Ideal to walk for miles and miles, being located in the Country Park and on the Trans Pennine trail in walking distance of so much lovely country side. There is a nice walk off the site down the trail along the canal bank, 7.5 miles to and from the cafe. this was our first stay on the site but will be back in the future.

Enjoyable winter break

After a speedy check in by the lovely lady warden, we were spoilt for choice with the many excellent, level and well cared for pitches. Everything was spot on, clean and well cared for. If I had one criticism, it would be that it would have been nice to see more planters/shrubs. Landscaping is all very functional and lacking in imagination. However, this is my only criticism for an otherwise great site.

More than just a stopover, worth a longer visit.

Just spent five nights here. It’s a lovely site and it’s so easy to get to. Close to the motorway, but you have to listen hard to hear it. The site is well laid out and perfectly kept. From the smiling face that greets you on arrival and surrounding area, there’s not a lot that could prevent you from having that smile on your face when you leave.

Quick transit stop

I stayed one night as I had an early appointment in the local area. Arriving after 5pm on a Sunday evening I found the office locked but the relief warden was clearly looking out for my arrival and appeared before I rang the bell. It was a warm and efficient welcome and he very helpfully pointed out on the site map, the two pitches that were vacant. I was the final arrival of the day. Unfortunately there was a problem with the EHU, most likely my van as it tripped the supply but the relief warden was very kind about being asked to help at 6pm and he came out and we sorted the problem quite quickly. I was struck by how helpful he was even on a dark Sunday evening when he was no doubt just about to relax for the evening. The site is clean with level and spacious pitches. The facilities are very modern and extremely clean. There is noise from the M1 but it isn't overwhelming. A good site and excellent friendly service from the wardens.

Marmite site?

As you would expect, Poolsbrook is beautifully presented by very friendly staff. The Site is modern, clean and very well cared for. It is situated within an urban landscape and so it cannot hope to compete with the honey pot sites. I can understand that it may disappoint some visitors. The country park is fine for a stroll, but is not very expansive. The Trans Pennine Trail however is accessed from the front gate! This is a great resource for both walking and especially cycling. We were really glad that we booked. I think I have developed a liking for Marmite!
