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. With a recently refurbished toilet block 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.

Extremely diligent, pleasant and friendly wardens

Only bad weather spoilt our stay here. One small point (which I understand will be remedied when funds permit) is that the hardcore on some of the pitches is unstable so we had wheelspin trying to reverse off our levelling ramps.

Good site for exploring the Peak District

We found this site when the one we were staying on became waterlogged. We needed hardstanding and wanted to be able to explore the Peak District easily. The wardens were so welcoming when we arrived and so helpful finding us a great pitch when they were pretty much full. We had a great view of the top of The Roaches in late evening sun. The facilities were absolutely spotless, thanks to the hard work of the staff which we really appreciated. Lovely walks up onto The Roaches from half a mile from site and Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne all easy drives away. It's true, you can hear road noise at the front of the site, but it didn't bother us and dies down overnight. Further back on the site, I doubt you'd notice. I can't comment on family stuff as it isn't relevant to us. A big thank you has to go to the amazing site wardens without whom we would not be able to enjoy our holidays. I, for one, enjoyed the brambles: I collected some delicious blackberries behind our pitch. 😉

Great stay

We stayed 3 nights this week. I’d been a bit apprehensive due to previous reviews and Covid-19, no need to have worried at all. The site was following all gov guidelines. Yes, reduced facilities, but the vast majority of vans have a loo and even shower, and as I saw no toilet queues, I presume everyone was using their own. One review commented about not liking booking in through a window, this works perfectly and protects us and the site managers. We could walk for hours from the site, the road may be busy but it has a path that leads to public footpaths. The Roaches and reservoir all within walking distance. We will be back to explore more walks. Thank you to the site managers for providing a great service during this difficult time for all.

Disappointing

The site is not to the standard as previous. Grass areas not cut, dog walk neglected. Whilst I understand the issue regarding cleaning of toilet blocks to only have 1 block open with 2 toilet and shower in both the men’s and ladies is insufficient when the site is full (87 pitches). People didn’t adhere to the noise policy but the wardens did deal with the issue. A lot of the pitches had poor drainage. This is the 5th time we have been to this site but do not plan to return.

Needs a lot of effort put in

One night stopover heading for the Lakes, via Lyme House. We found it easily enough, and checked in. We did not like dealing through a partly open office window to book in. We pitched on the upper level near the closed facility block, which was quieter. We did not think the club allowed camping, but there was a large group allowed near the entrance, who also had children cycling around the lower area. Also there also seemed to be facility bands on the toilet hooks almost constantly, so as to “reserve”a toilet for maybe the same group. The site was unkempt, with hedges not being trimmed, allowing bramble suckers to cross pathways dangerously. Best part was the excellent local pub, with the best steak and ale pie I have had in a long time. We will only use this site as a last resort.....pity, as it could be good, in a great position. Pay the money out Caravan Club.....you need to make this one better
