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
Lovely site within easy walking of the Country Park or the town (Morrisons supermarket). Stayed a few nights, only a couple of miles from motorway. Well maintained site with good facilities, which was kept clean and tidy. (need a key for the washrooms) Wardens very pleasant and helpful. Easy access into the Derbyshire Dale, Bakewell, Matlock Baths etc. Enjoyed our stay and would stay again

Lovely site indeed

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site

Excellent site with helpful staff and managers

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site
We enjoyed our stay at this site - the site is very well managed and staff were doing all they could to provide a Covid safe environment - the managers and staff were very helpful - there is an information hub which provided good local information by way of a clearly laid out set of information boards/leaflets etc - having the main lake only 5 minutes walk from the site is great for anyone wanting a pleasant stroll and for those interested in bird life there are herons, coot, moorhens, ducks, terns, woodpeckers, grebes etc on the lake.

Quiet location close to Country Park and walking/cycling routes

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site
This was my first visit to this site, a planned visit last year had to be cancelled due to the 2nd Lockdown. It's a pleasant, clean, tidy, well laid out site. It was also quiet and peaceful as this was a term time mid-week visit. It might be a little less peaceful at weekends and holiday times as it looks like an ideal location to take children with the Country Park next door. The Country Park offers lots of paths for walking and cycling. I didn't get much chance to sample these as I ventured elsewhere. The site entrance is approx. 100 years from the Trans Pennine Trail. In one direction you can walk to/from Chesterfield, in the other you can walk to Rother Valley Country Park, both of which I walked to. The Trail itself would take you to Sheffield or even further to Manchester, the former would be well within reach by bicycle. I had intended to visit a local pub/restaurant recommended by the site staff, a 20-30 minute walk from the site, for an evening meal, but unfortunately something else cropped up and prevented this. I look forward to visiting the site again in the future.

Best Introduction To a Club Site

Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site
Had a stop over here on 12/6/21 before a planned journey onto Hawes. As this was our first visit to a club site, we didn't quite know what to expect, no need to be concerned, the staff were superb, jovial, helpful and professional. The site is pristine and really shows they have a real interest in their jobs, and although we don't use site facilities I imagine those would be the same. The site was very quiet which suited us after a 200 mile drive. Unfortunately we didn't make Hawes as we could not get the 230v supply into the caravan, as it was getting late by the time we tried, we didn't bother the staff as we guessed it was our van at fault, under warranty but still a nuisance. Warden checked his supply next day and as expected all ok. But we will definitely return.
