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.

Great Staffordshire Location

Blackshaw Moor is not too far away from home but a great easy drive to a beautiful environment. September was our first time at BSMCS. It will not be the last. Many a year of meeting with family at Tittersworth Reservoir now, within easy walking distance. A great place to walk around and stay for lunch. A few lovely pubs near by too. Another enjoyable day walking to and around the Roaches. Hard to believe this was the first time I have visited there when I live so close!! I didn’t get chance to get out on my bike as I would have liked. Weather and busy road from off the site were off putting. The site was busy with arrivals and departures but plenty of pitches available. Unfortunately there had been an emergency before our arrival and wardens were awaiting ambulance crew to the site. We, as arrivals were all ‘blocking’ the barrier! The lady at reception was lovely, booking us in with good clear information and very reassuring in anxious times. I didn’t catch your name, hope you know who you are, thank you for your lovely welcome. (shame another warden told you to speed things up as you would never move us arrivals in my ear shot! NOT good customer service, despite an awaiting ambulance! Maybe look at the arrivals queuing system at such a short road area.) The site was well maintained, one block of toilets only open but when I used the facilities, it was always quiet. A couple of issues which I reported while there, which were down to individual club members. We all need to leave areas as we would like to find them. Cleanliness comes from the individual, it is not the overall responsibility of the wardens; cleaning toilet seats if soiled! Cleaning draining boards after washing up! Supervising your children at all times, especially in confined spaces, the toilet block! It is not the area for running around in! Not during a pandemic! Overall, well done Blackshaw Moor, a great site and we will return. You are on our ‘to go to, not far from home’ site list!

Disappointing

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.

Very helpful warden.....

We had booked a 7 night stay here with plans to meet up with friends & family outside of the site but cut short our stay due to the forecast of more unsettled weather which we had had in the lakes the previous 2 weeks..... The warden was very helpful after trying to contact HO to sort out the above. It is a lovely site with very generous pitches but despite our pitch (67) being quite a way away from the road which only has a 40 mph speed limit it did become noisy as early as 5a.m. We were planning to visit at half-term with our youngest grandchildren (7) & their bikes but there are signs for No Cycling on site so we have had to re consider & book elsewhere. It may be that the No Cycling applies to just one area which is the road toward the exit, which is quite an incline & leads straight out onto the main road so this is totally understandable but wasn't going to work for us..... As others have said, Covid guidelines are being met but this is the 1st site that we have experienced only 2 persons allowed in the shower blocks + one closed! Well there are actually 4 hooks, 2 toilet & 2 showers but this is not helped when someone puts 2 bands there, 1 for toilet & 1 for shower..... had to laugh at that one....

great for walking

We visit this site every September as this area of the peak district is really fantastic for walking. from the site you can walk up onto, 'the Roaches' which is just stunning. I can honestly say it's my favourite walk in the UK, the views are unbelievable. You can also do walks around Tittesworth reservoir, Rudyard lake, Luds church and up onto Blackshaw moor itself. The staff on site are always very friendly, yes, you check in from the outside of the office through the window due to Covid but I honestly can't see why this is an issue and why someone had a problem with it. We used our own facilities so can't comment on the cleanliness of the shower block. The three horseshoes pub nearby is lovely though we didn't eat there this time but they have a lovely beer garden with great views. All food and drinks were ordered via their app at the moment. Some grass around our pitch was rather long which, as it had been wet, was a bit of a pain when walking around the edge to get in the car but mostly on site all of the other grass had been cut. we shall certainly be back next year
