This new site, incorporating a number of sustainable resource and energy features, is set within the 165 acre Poolsbrook Country Park. Once the site of a colliery, the land has been transformed into this tremendous country park with amenities including Visitor Centre, cafe and children’s adventure play area. With lakes for fishing, extensive trails for cyclists and walkers to explore, an added bonus is that the country park also adjoins the Trans-Pennine Trail. An important habitat for wildlife, the number of birds seen at the country park is particularly impressive. The site is situated about two miles south of Staveley town centre, with existing attractions within 15 miles that notably draw on the area’s industrial heritage.

Very clean if not clinical campsite situated next to a purrpose built country park in Chesterfield. We were initially disappointed when we arrived as we realised the park was located within an industrial site and it was very open and blowing a gale! The facilities are immaculate even though with a caravan we didn't use them often. However, the absolute gem of the site is the little country park 2 mins away, with a lovely play area (5yrs+?), lake and fantastic cafe with very friendly staff. Delicious food served overlooking the play area and lake and a full breakfast for £3.50! Although I would say the campsite is not particularly child friendly, the park easily makes up for it. Good location for the Peaks. Poolsbrook Country Park Caravan Club Site, Chesterfield, Derbyshire
