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.

Brilliant Find

What a wonderful campsite. There is nothing negative that you can say about this site. The campsite is very well maintained and welcoming. The wardens were all very helpful and approachable and most importantly at this time always smiling no matter how silly the question/enquiry. The children’s play area was very popular with our children and our cocker spaniel enjoyed the dog walk. It was the perfect place to go to for our first time out since October and there’s one thing for sure we will be returning.

First trip after lockdown

Desperate for a break after nearly 4 months, we booked Blackshaw Moor, but this was not our first choice. But what a pleasant surprise! The location so near to Leek, but on the edge of the specatular Peak District was excellent. The lay out of the site was spacious with terraced levels. A slight downside was the traffic noise from the main road, but once settled in, we didn't notice it. There are lots of places to visit, walk and shop - to suit all tastes. The history of the site is interesting, in that it was once a base for Polish soldiers after WW2. As you walk around the site, there are small photo boards showing what it was like during those times. How the site was organised for these Covid times was excellent and reassuring. Finally, we must mention the warden team, who were some of the most welcoming we have come across. And what an excellent job they did, always with a smile and a wave. Thank you wardens.

April 2021 Blackshaw Moor Review

We have just returned from a 3 night visit on this site, first site after hopefully the last lockdown!, We travelled from Sheffield via Buxton then through to leek, all roads clear and are caravan friendly, the site entrance was clearly marked and was as expected from the caravan club. The warden greated us at the barrier and asked if we had a nice trip over, had a chat for fie minutes whilst the wife paid and then set off to select our pitch, we went to the top of the site as the rad we had just been on has plenty of quarry lorries hurtling along it, oh watch out for the speed camera van just outside the sites gates also, it’s a 20mph when the orange school lights are flashing. The site is well cared for and all working their clearly love what they do, Great for the Roaches and the reservoir for some good waking in the area, we will return here, facilities again as can be expected from a ccl site. Leek 10mins down the road, all major supermarkets there, thanks to the warden for lending us the change for the car parking at the reservoir!!! Parking there £3 for 2 hours and £5 al day. Pub across road looked excellent but was fully booked so missed that experience. Fantastic and like I say will return keep up the good work!

Second Choice

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.

Great Location

This site is in an amazing location for local walks especially Tittesworth Lake and Luds Church. It is a clean site and although there were restrictions in place it did not deter from us enjoying the stay. We do have a young spaniel who enjoys getting very muddy on walks therefore had booked with the understanding that there was a dog wash on site however when we were there, even though stated on the site map there was nothing available which was really disappointing. Luckily we had a Mud Daddy and were able to clean the dog before he made a good job of dirtying the van. Also to note if you are booking a serviced pitch please ensure you have a long extension as if you are sited with your caravan inlet on the wrong side you do need this to reach the taps. Overall this did not prevent us from enjoying our stay but more of please be aware. We did go to a local pub (The Reform Inn) for a meal which was amazing and would thoroughly recommend not only for the food but the warmth and good service we received - best to book a table.
