Why stay here ...

You will be delighted by Poolsbrook Country Park Club Campsite - 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 Campsite 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.

Nice break

Poolsbrook Country Park Club Campsite
Easy site to get to, lovely facilities and very kind friendly wardens. Nice to see children playing and making friends in a safe environment. Ignore the moaners.

Not a bad site but….

Poolsbrook Country Park Club Campsite
This is not a bad site, nice walk around the lake and the pizza van on Friday is very good, but a note to the warden, when most people come for the weekend please consider, the grass does not need cutting every day!! spoiled what would have been a quiet weekend

Lovely site - shame the warden encourages loose dogs.

Poolsbrook Country Park Club Campsite
Great site, stayed there lots of times and always clean facilities. Chip van on site on Wednesdays is superb. Only downside this time was the total non-enforcement of dogs on leads. Lots of loose dogs wandering across with owners to the taps, drifting around other pitches etc and the wardens did nothing. Even saw the Man warden twice chatting to the owners of two yappy little dogs that were never on the lead the whole time they were there. Warden was fussing the loose dogs!

Lovely Stay, Extremely helpful Site Manager (Malc)

Poolsbrook Country Park Club Campsite
This site is a little Gem, Perfect for walking and Perfect for cycling. Malc the Site Manager went out of his way to fix my issue with a new buggy for our pet carrier, definitely not in his job description, but thanks to him we were able to have a trip out on our bikes pulling our little dog who's legs do not carry her as far as she would like. Cannot thank him enough. Thanks' again Malc. what an asset to the Caravan and Motorhome Club. Regards Valentino and Diane Kotecka.

Peaceful escape

Poolsbrook Country Park Club Campsite
We went to this site to try out our new caravan - only 30 minutes from home. It’s a lovely site, well spread out with incredibly level pitches, all of which are hard standing. Perfect for a winter / spring get away. Poolsbrook country park isn’t all that exciting, but nice for a quick walk around. The site is so peaceful with lovely clean, new facilities. Access to the local areas is good, we didn’t explore as it’s so close to home we’ve been there done that, but I would recommend as an area for getting into Derbyshire or South Yorkshire. Easy access from the M1. A very relaxing break and the site served its purpose for us.
