Why stay here ...

An attractive, level and terraced site with spacious pitches and a recently refurbished toilet block, Blackshaw Moor Club Site is situated on the quieter, southern edge of the Peak District, offering some of the most scenic views and walks in the region. This is an ideal caravan site for families visiting Staffordshire, and those who long to enjoy the beautiful Peak District without the crowds - here you can fully take advantage of some of the most dramatic views and enjoyable walking routes that the area has to offer.

Tittesworth Reservoir and Nature Reserve is just a short walk away from Blackshaw Moor Club Site, and the town of Leek with its splendid Victorian buildings, cobbled streets and selection of mill shops is a convenient 3 miles away. The area also boasts an adventure playground and a sensory garden for the blind and partially sighted. With the caravan site being only a 20 minute drive from Buxton, Bakewell and Hartington, you will be well placed while staying here for a visit to the world famous Wedgwood Potteries.

Welcoming site.

Blackshaw Moor Caravan Club Site
This was our first visit to Blackshaw Moor and only our second to a Club Site. We loved the warm and personal welcome and the help and advice of the warden about finding a pitch. We arrived to have a choice of only 2 pitches, but were able to move the following day to one that suited us better. We loved the little personal touches, the floral arrangements, the information plaques about the site's history, the pizza van that turned up on Thursday and saved us having to cook, and the facilities were spotless. The site feels surprisingly peaceful considering the proximity of the road. The only disappointing thing for us was that we could not put up our dog garden/windbreak arrangement. We'd read that steel ground pegs are needed but thought our steel tipped poles would be adequate. They weren't. If you want to put up a windbreak or dog garden, you need a self supporting one here. We walked to Hen Cloud on a very hot day. Had it been cooler we'd have explored further, but it's well worth the walk. We also walked to the reservoir, the walks around it are lovely, but it's a long slog down there and back on foot, on a hot day. Did I mention the heat? The weather was amazing! Lots to do and see in the area, We had a lovely stay.

A lovely, clean, spacious site

Blackshaw Moor Caravan Club Site
We had a lovely stay. The site is easy to find, being on the main road between Buxton and Leek, and we were warmly welcomed. As instructed we looked around and saw that all the pitches seemed spacious so allowing a feeling of privacy whichever pitch was chosen. We had a choice of the available pitches but unfortunately these were pretty much all near the entrance and the road - something that may have been more of a concern for us as we live in a quiet area. That said, the traffic noise wasn't excessive and calmed down at night. The facilities are superb. A simple Covid/hygiene protocol ensures toilet/washing facilities don't get overcrowded and you'd never know they were communal as they were so clean. There's several water/grey water/waste points around the site, plus a couple of chemical waste points. Around 3 sides there's a track aimed for dog owners but pleasant for those without pooches too. Walking around the site is pleasurable as there's pictures showing what was previously on the site from WW2, as well as small novelty scenes. It all made the stay so much more than just any old site. There's plenty of supermarkets and other shopping in Leek, and the 3 Horsehoes pub (10 mins walk) serves very good food. Tittesworth reservoir (managed by Severn Trent) offers a nice place for gentle walks, picnic and play area and a cafe/restaurant facility. All well maintained and run.

Attention to detail

Blackshaw Moor Caravan Club Site
Blackshaw Moor was just as you would expect from The Caravan Club but the wardens have made it so much more. Every walk around the site produced something new and I loved the dedication and attention to detail. A pretty site with terraced level pitches and a super dog walk. As you can tell we loved it!

Lovely but bit out of the way

Blackshaw Moor Caravan Club Site
This was the main site for our first motorhoming holiday. We were a little disappointed with the location as nothing was as nearby as it was with the previous two sites except for The Three Horseshoes Inn at which we had an amazing evening meal, delicious food and great service. The pub garden has lovely views. We walked to Leek and got a taxi back as it was a Sunday so the bus service was at best limited, which is understandable. Tittesworth Water looked lovely. We took the motorhome out for the day and visited the Heights of Abraham, Matlock Bath and Bakewell, all well worth a visit. When we first picked a pitch it was at the top of the site but we immediately heard and smelt the motorbikes in the field so we moved a row down. From there we could hear the traffic on the main road but it didn't disturb us at night. Overall nothing wrong with the site just not the location we had imagined, which is I guess a lack of research on our part. The highlight of our stay was the delicious freshly made pizzas by Fitz on the Saturday evening.
