Irondale Touring Caravans and Campsite: Numbered pitches

General

  • Well-maintained pub site for guests 14 years and over
  • In Stanton by Dale; 20 minutes' drive from Attenborough Nature Centre
  • Real ale and pub food served; 20 minutes' walk from a golf club

Dart off to Derbyshire and make for Irondale Touring Caravans and Campsite in Stanton by Dale, a well-kept site attached to an award-winning pub. The name of this spot is a nod to Stanton's industrial heritage – if the village rings a bell, it may well be because 'Stanton' crops up on many a manhole cover across the UK.

Nowadays, things are peaceful around here, and the site is set between traditional red brick houses and a small village green. The Chequers Inn is over 200 years old and still in fine fettle – its selling point remains its focus on real ales and proper home-cooked food. The pub, like the site, is mightily dog-friendly, so don't hesitate to bring four-legged friends along on your trip.

The pitches here are level, well-drained and conveniently located to the rear of the pub. Although it's close to the M1, off-site strolls are unlikely to involve busy roads and traffic – Irondale Touring Caravans and Campsite is a few minutes' walk from footpaths that'll take you through the pleasant fields and hills that make up the local landscape.

The nearest supermarket can be found in Sandiacre (five minutes' drive); Ilkeston (10 minutes) has a wider range of shops and takeaways.

Please note that kids under the age of 14 aren't allowed to stay at Irondale Touring Caravans and Campsite.

Quiet, clean site with small friendly pub16/11/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric hardstanding and grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Despite its proximity to the main road network, this site is generally very quiet, especially during the night. It's also clean and the pitches are well spaced. Sue proved to be a very helpful host who fitted in our late request for a meal on arrival. Although the menu was limited, the food itself was very tasty! The pub is relatively small but the atmosphere was friendly and it's clearly frequented by a lot of locals - always a good sign.

    Grey water drainage and good electric hook-up (25A I think) are a big bonus. Foul waste point is a bit basic but perfectly functional - just remember to point the water hose away from you when you disconnect it from the tap!!

    'Ken', the Harris Hawk, added an unexpected and very enjoyable dimension to our visit.

    The information about the site and its facilities was accurate.

    Disliked: 

    Not really a 'dislike', but as others have mentioned, the entrance requires care. Our van (a Bailey Unicorn) is about 2.3m wide and about 7.3 m long. The width between the pub wall and the stone wall opposite is sufficient but needs to be negotiated slowly. It's might be worth having someone help if, like me, you're not too confident about judging the width/length of your van.

    A fabulous site, located behind the Chequers Pub in the quiet village of Stanton by Dale. A clean, very well presented site with generous size pitches, level and easily accessed. The pub has a great atmosphere, serves food and had a good selection of ales. A real little gem.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Do a round of the greens at Erewash Valley Golf Club (20 minutes' walk), a well-kept local club with fab tree-lined fairways that's easily accessible on foot. Other outdoor pursuits around here include fishing, with the nearest angling spot about five minutes' drive away, and birdwatching – Attenborough Nature Centre (20 minutes) may be named after the nearby village rather than the TV presenter, but it's still a prime pick for a spot of ornithology.

Nottingham city centre (20 minutes) is next up, for a castle, shopping centres and the interactive National Justice Museum. (Rather not drive around town? Pull up to one of the city's park and rides and take the tram instead.) On the outskirts of Nottingham is Wollaton Hall (20 minutes), an Elizabethan country house with a deer park and formal gardens. (Remember Batman's mansion in The Dark Knight Rises? Yep, that was filmed here.)

Heading towards the Peak District National Park (from 45 minutes) is also on the cards, whether you opt for Derbyshire dalliances in the grounds of Chatsworth House (an hour) or old-time amusements and riverside walks in Matlock Bath (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Wollaton Hall and Park (4.2 miles)
  • Nottingham Castle (6.6 miles)
  • Castle Donington Museum (6.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Kedleston Hall (9.5 miles)
