Tackeroo Caravan Site: Ready to get pitched up

General

  • No-frills bike-friendly site on 10 acres of Forestry Commission land
  • In Cannock Chase, a 10-minute drive from Rugeley and the A51
  • Access to popular mountain bike paths, including Follow the Dog trail

Woods, wild terrain and some of the finest mountain biking trails in the Midlands – access to all of the above is to be had from Tackeroo Caravan Site in the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This Staffordshire park, set on Forestry Commission land, has pitches spread among the tall pine, spruce and evergreen trees. It’s got a wild feel – there are no showers, toilets or facilities in general, save for some rubbish bins and a waste disposal point to empty chemical toilets (which you’re required to bring if you want to stay here). Taps are on hand for filling up your water tank and bottle.

It’s definitely worth lugging a mountain bike along on a trip to Tackeroo, which sits alongside the famed Follow The Dog trail, the Midlands’ first – and arguably still the best – dedicated mountain bike path. Outside peak camping season, the site hosts popular cycling-themed events and the area is a general hub for all things riding (head south for the Monkey Trail or north to explore Cannock Chase Country Park).

It’s also around a mile or so to Birches Valley Forest Visitor Centre, a prime place to grab some tourist info brochures, get your bearings and make a plan for exploring the area. There’s a GoApe! activity centre, a Gruffalo nature trail for families and a decent little café as well. Oh, and more mountain biking trails of course…

    We have visited a few times now and like the forest setting. Plenty of safe space for the children to run around and ride bikes.

    A few other visitors playing loud music, ruined the calm and peaceful atmosphere we go there for.

    Excellent time all round. Apart from our dog who got upset with the shooting which happened occasionally. She is very noise sensitive and we twice had to abandon our walk.

    But otherwise a fabulous time.

    Anyone with a sound sensitive dog, might want to take note, otherwise a brilliant place for people and dogs.

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

Once you’ve ridden around all the area’s excellent mountain biking trails several times, keep the adrenaline pumping while suspended high above the forest canopy at Go Ape Cannock (five minutes’ drive), an activity centre with almost 1,500 metres of tree-to-tree crossings. Less energetic dawdles in the area include dog-walking and orienteering trails.

Other gentle ways to while away a day include wanders by the water at Fairoak Pools (five minutes) or fly fishing on the banks of Blithfield Reservoir (15 minutes). Amateur historians could amble around Castle Ring, an Iron Age site (15 minutes), while shoppers might prefer to dip in and out of the boutiques of Rugeley market town (10 minutes).

If stately homes appeal, navigate your way to the National Trust’s Shugborough Estate (15 minutes), a huge Georgian building with a walled garden. Into flexing your creativity? Check out Ingestre Hall, a Grade II-listed 17th-century Jacobean mansion and the UK’s only dedicated Residential Arts Centre (20 minutes).

Must see

  • Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum & Bookshop (13.6 kilometres)
  • National Memorial Arboretum (17.2 kilometres)
  • Boscobel House & the Royal Oak (18.3 kilometres)
