Having had my weeks holiday cancelled at Wirral Club site due to being put in Tier 3. I booked Blackshaw Moor site as a second choice. Being my first stay on the site I kept a open mind, The check in was very smooth but there were many caravan and Motorhomes waiting; would seem people are still turning up 45 minutes before the check in opens at 1pm. The site to my surprise was below half full when i arrived, large selection of pitches to pick from. To avoid the road noise i picked to stay at the top tier of the site away from the road, unfortunatly the farmer who owns the land around the side uses the area behind the hedge for his friends to use off road motor bikes that made a awful noise most days. I moved to the middle tier and the pitch was a little small but near a service point. Still could hear the noise. Not a lot the site can do about that seeing as its off site. The site has two toilet blocks, but only one open. The first 3 nights were not a problem but at the start of the children half term the site became full and having only one toilet block open was not too great on a morning, having to wait to use the site facility. For dog owners there is a rather nice dog walk with nice open views of the country side. The site is located in a nice area, almost all things you need to drive too, there are many shops and supermarkets in Leek. There is a pub 5 minutes walk from the site but with the COVID situation I did not go to the pub. Being end of October I maybe did not see the site at its best, the warden told me he is leaving and will not be there next year so I'm sure there will be changes next year. If you like to watch TV using a coax aerial you can receive 125 tv channels I would only go back to this site as a last resort, i did not like the noise on site.
Spent a very wet weekend here 9 -11 October 2020. Pitches near to the road are very noisy so avoid these. Despite there being two toilet blocks, one was permanently closed. The remaining block was cordoned off to allow only two people in at a time, meaning there was queues. The cleaning regime was good, however the timings just did not work for us. Toilets were unavailable on our arrival 14:30, and unavailable on our departure 11:30, which were the only times we actually needed them, as our on board dunny was packed away. This same complaint is in several reviews, but the jobs worth management clearly are not listening. Having paid full price we expect one unisex toilet to be made available, whilst the main toilets are cleaned. If thats not possible then dont take our money! The site did have a separate disabled toilet, but everything was cordoned off at the same time. Other club sites seam to manage. We wont be going back.
