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.

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site
We have stayed at this site a few times and our last visit didn’t disappoint. Very friendly wardens, good clean facilities and the best in the club for their flower pots/baskets providing a beautiful site as you drive in. Easy access to walk around the lake and watch the bird life and easy access to the motorway. On the down side the ladies toilet block is far to warm in hot weather at the shower end, better ventilation is needed. Also it appears to be the normal thing to walk across other peoples pitches and not only on this site - please have a little respect and walk around the pitch and not across it.

Very Noisy, what a shame

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site
We arrived at Poolsbrook to the most enthusiastic Warden welcome of the year, and the usual lecture about speeding, pitching up etc. We had a service pitch and they were really good, with nearly level pitches, to be honest I put one side on a 25mm block and we were level so would be okay without I guess. So down sides, and there were a few sadly... The road noise is really bad and cars and motorbikes constantly racing along. The weekends there is a nearby off road motorcycle area so noisy. The amount of dogs on site, 4 in the van next to us for 3 nights were impeccable however site was full of constantly yapping dogs all over. People let the walk across pitches and wee anywhere. Drivers speed around and wardens do nothing about it, but this is usual on all CAMC sites these days. People walking across your pitch is something you will definitely suffer from as loads of pitches are a short cut. Wardens should advice people arriving of this. The "nod" to an environmentally aware site is given by a "No Mow" area, which is nice, but on a site of this size, an area that is less than 2 square meters is taking the ? Well what the dogs do on your pitch! Access to country park is brilliant as to cycle paths canals etc but is it worth it for the constant noise? I'm not sure and had to put up with it for 14 nights. P{pictures of no Mow zone available, come on CAMC make an effort there was so much grass area that could have been handed over for diversity

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site
We have just returned from another lovely weekend at Poolsbrook Country Park. The site is easily accessible for the A1 but is peaceful and quiet. The welcome from the wardens was excellent - the wardens were the friendliest we have encountered across our Caravan Club stays. We loved the modern and clean facilities, as well as the well kept site and pitches. The site is next to a beautiful lake with lots of birdlife, so a leisurely walk around the lake is a must! We will definitely return to this site!

A lovely site.

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site
We frequently visit Poolsbrook as we think it is a lovely, clean and peaceful site. The wardens are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The last time we visited this site the site had been booked by a few travelling families which caused some nervousness for ourselves and other caravaners. I would just like to say that the Assistant Wardens, Helen and Neil, were fantastic, they spoke to us and regularly checked if we were OK plus did many walk rounds amongst their usual daily jobs. I think they both do an excellent job but on this occasion they were both brilliant and you could tell that they were doing their all to make both the travellers and everyone else enjoy their stay.
