This was our first visit to Blackshaw Moor Farm and we weren't disappointed, however there didn't seem to be any early warning on the road prior to the entrance so you need to be awake. On arrival the wardens were very friendly and helpful, so much so my wife commented on it more than once. Pointed out which pitches were available and where we may like. Off we went to set up.

Staff seemed much in evidence cleaning and maintaining.

Found the site very clean and tidy and same with the shower and toilet block my only gripe is the same across the estate, they're too small.

There was the usual washing up facilities along with laundry and good local info room.

A bonus here is the largish drying room for for walking clothes.

Pitches her seem gigantic and the wardens were quite clear on how to pitch, something I think is the norm now across the club.

Some people have mentioned the road noise but I can't say we noticed it.

The site has some historical interest in that it was built for Polish ex servicemen.

There is a bus stop close by and a good range of shops in Leek including supermarkets.

Leek is quite an interesting town and worth a visit if you have an interest in social history. It was a big silk town and the old mills are still there. Also have a look at the library.

Buxton is also worth a day. Do visit the museum and try 'The Tradesman's Entrance' for something to eat.

Bakewell also worth a look. Has large market but cannot remember which day. Shed loads of eating places here. Mind it was busy then so I expect it would be heaving in holiday time.

Our main hobby is walking and this is well catered for. We found the Pathfinder Peak District guide a good one but a look at your O. S. Map would probably work well.

We were very lucky with the weather and it was boots and rucksacks most days. Outstanding.

Our first visit to Staffordshire and we were well pleased so I think we'll be back, probably to this site. You can even hear the sealions at night.

Absolutely love this site. The wardens (Mike and Sheila ) are fantastic as are the deputy wardens. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They always had a smile for you. They couldn't do enough for our son who is Autistic and is in a wheelchair, they really went the extra mile for him.

The site is very well maintained and toilet/shower blocks are immaculate. Would recommend this site every time.

You can have a morning paper ordered and mobile chippy van comes on Saturday. There is also a little shop on site.

The pitches are nicely spaced out and as the site is tiered you can stay on a different level each time.

Just spent 7days at this site with wife and found it nice and quiet which suited us perfectly. Site was kept clean and tidy. Showers and toilets were clean with plenty of hot water. Nearby leek had plenty of shops and all popular supermarkets. And some very good restaurants nearby. All the staff were very helpful. Highly recommended.

What a lovely location. I've never been to this area before but will return and will stay at this site. Only 8 fully serviced pitches and had trouble finding dates with availability. I'm not surprised it's popular though.

Staff are very friendly and helpful and offered good advice about where to walk my dogs off lead. ( understandably not on the site)

Didn't use showers as prefer to use my own on a fully serviced pitch, but looked very clean. Toilets spotless.

Liked the herb garden, had some lovely pork chops from the butchers in Leek.

We will be back. Very quiet and peaceful. Some road noise but we are used to this coming from a town.

Lay in bed listening to owls hooting at night which is lovely.

All in all wish we were staying longer!

The site is set on a slight slope surrounded by mature trees, at the side of the A53, about 3 north of Leek, where you will find supermarkets, as well as indoor and outdoor markets. The site is terraced but some of the pitches still require levelling blocks and chocks. A lot of the pitches have hedges between and are very spacious, giving plenty of room for van, awning and vehicle. There is a small play area close to the top of the site, can't comment as no children with us.

There are two toilet blocks, one on the top level and one in the same building as the site reception. Both are heated, with spacious showers and privacy cubicles, with plenty of hot water and both blocks are immaculately clean. There is a laundry and drying room (for outdoor clothing).

The wardens are very friendly, chatty and helpful, even cutting an overhanging branch off a tree, so it wouldn't touch our van.

When we arrived the site was almost full, but never felt crowded.

The surrounding countryside is stunning, with plenty of walking in the immediate area, Tittesworth Resevoir is not far, and has a lovely visitor centre with a café. The Roaches, too, are within walking distance.

The Three Horseshoes is a short walk from the site, and serves hand pulled ales and good food, it is not cheap, but is more than your average pub grub.

Just coming to the end of a two week stay. We have had an amazing time. The site is well kept, the toilet blocks pristine and the wardens have all been fantastic. We pitched on the second row from the top of the site. Had no problem with road noise. Tv reception was not good using our onboard aerial however got a perfect signal when using the site hook up. Dog walk facilities are adequate however there is a terrific Dog wash facility. Nearby tittesworth reservoir is a brilliant level walk for our canine friend. We have loved the scenery of this part of the country and the hospitality of everyone we have met has been warm and welcoming. Places to recommend are the tea rooms at hen cloud on the way up to the roaches and the lazy trout pub at nearby Meerbrook, brilliant food at a reasonable price. Nearby Leek has all the major supermarkets even a Waitrose.
