Blackbrook Lodge Camping and Caravanning: Pond with Pods

General

  • Spacious and dog-friendly 12-acre site in the Derbyshire Dales
  • A 15-minute drive to Ashbourne; 40 minutes to Chatsworth Estate
  • Shop and fishing ponds on site

Grab your walking boots, your fishing kit and your dog and get set for some relaxing time in the Derbyshire Dales at Blackbrook Lodge Camping and Caravanning, between the villages of Turnditch and Brailsford.

This 12-acre site is well placed for walks and other outdoor activities – the edge of the Peak District National Park is about 20 minutes’ drive away, you can pick up the traffic-free Tissington Trail about 15 minutes away and there’s a good collection of watersports to be had at Carsington Water, 10 minutes away.

And the fishing? Well, that’s right there where you’re staying – this site has both a main fishing lake and two ponds filled with carp for lazy days by the water. Away from the ponds, the main camping field is set back from the road and has space for kids to run around freely.

Other facilities on site include a small shop for essentials, a washing-up area, toilets and hot showers that are available 24 hours a day. There are several pubs and restaurants within 10 minutes’ drive to keep the tribe fed, or you’re welcome to bring along a barbecue. If you go for the latter option, there’s a farm shop about 10 minutes’ drive away for delicious local goodies, and it’s the same distance to a supermarket for any other essentials.

Please note that chocks or levellers may be needed.

    The walk into the pub. The fishing was excellent. The children and partner caught over 70 fish over 4 days. The owners were very helpful and informative. A short drive into villages. Only 30 minutes from Alton Towers. The camping field had lots of space for the children to run around.

    Loved the site, very quiet and friendly. It was our first time with the caravan, and finding the site was not a problem. It was easy to park the caravan, and the pitch was brilliant. The small shop was perfect, with everything well stocked (we needed butter and they had it!). The staff were chatty, polite and lovely to talk to.

    The toilet block looked fairly new, it was clean and the the showers were hot, so everything was perfect. Can't recommend this site enough, it was perfect, we'll be back next year!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike, everything was perfect for our first trip as caravan owners.

Local attractions

There are so many great spot to choose from in the Peak District National Park – perhaps you’d like to go for a family bike ride on the Tissington Trail from Ashbourne (15 minutes’ drive), hop across the stepping stones at Dovedale (25 minutes) or finish up a hike by sampling the traditional puddings in Bakewell (35 minutes)?

A visit to the Chatsworth Estate (40 minutes) is a must – for the farm shop, adventure playground and farmyard as much as the house and gardens themselves – and the nearby Kedleston Hall National Trust estate (10 minutes) is another spot that’s worth a visit.

For more ideas to keep the kids happy, try the watersports and bike rides at Carsington Water (10 minutes), days out at Gulliver’s Kingdom family theme park (20 minutes) or a cable car ride with splendid views at Heights of Abraham (20 minutes).

Must see

  • Kedleston Hall (3.2 miles)
  • Arkwright's Cromford Mills (7.7 miles)
