  • 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.

Ruth S. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Powered grass campsite

Liked: This campsite is in a beautiful spot. The pitches are spacious and well maintained. Plenty of electric points in sensible positions and water taps too. The showers were lovely in the ladies, really hot with good water pressure.

Disliked: I disliked a couple of things but it wouldn't be enough to put me off staying again. There wasn't really enough toilets or showers, we had to queue every morning for both. I would hate to go when its really busy. My husband said the showers in the mens weren't great. The shower in the ladies was lovely but the shower area was a bit ropey and the tray didn't drain that well. The site is in Derbyshire. Which has hills. The campsite is on a hill. In the caravan it was fine as we could level through with what we had but my sister was in a tent which is never great on a sloping site but unavoidable and nothing the campsite owners can change.

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).
