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.

Stayed at blackshaw moor for 2 nights in our motorhome, booked a fully serviced pitch, when we arrived only one pitch available pitch 76, no wonder! Pitch was untidy weeds growing all over it and quite grubby to look at no wonder people just bypassed it for another pitch. The one thing certain sites fail to tell you like black shaw moor is that if you park were you should do at caravan club sites, that unless you have extra long water, waste and tv cable nothing will reach, and as there is only 1 connection point per every 3 units this is unacceptable considering you have paid for a premium pitch. We did have a discussion with the wardens who I have to say we're sympathetic and indeed agreed with my opinion of the pitch and also offered me a standard pitch, but as our motorhome has a electric on board water facility we had to use a fully serviced pitch. It funny to mention but when you come across sites such as blackshaw moor the reception always seems to sell the extra long bits and bobs you need. The site itself is not level as described there is also the local motor-cross guys over the weekend in the field next door so don't expect a lazy quiet Saturday but on a good note the toilet and showers are very clean and up the caravan club standard. Would we stay here again, as club members a definite no!

Lovely clean site, as expected with a Caravan club site. The wardens are brilliant nothing is too much trouble. The grounds are well kept and you can tell the wardens love their job. There is some road noise, but if you can pitch at the top of the site its quieter. On the sunday a group of dirt bikers did use the field at the back of the site, this didn't bother us, as we were off out for the day, but I can imagine it would spoil the peace and quiet. The area is very scenic and a walk to the Roaches is very energetic, pint at the old rock a must. Planning another visit soon.

We have just returned from our first visit to this site - and we will be returning in the future. The site is easy to access - good for those of us who are not so confident in our towing skills. We had a pitch about half way up the site so not too much road noise - and convenient for both toilet blocks and the dog walk!

The shower blocks were both very clean - and the showers in the top block were found to be warm and with plentiful hot water. As others have said you will need longer than usual hook up cables, and a tv cable as the reception is not brilliant - it can be a bit off even with our newly bought cable (available from reception at £15) Staff were generally friendly and helpful.

We had a good day out in Leek and also a trip to Ashbourne and Dovedale with an unexpected dip for one of our dogs over the stepping stones! We had a meal out at the Three Horseshoes - they do a good carvery lunch for pensioners Mon-Fri for £6. 99 for 2 good sized courses, and some of our group took advantage of their spa one evening and returned very chilled. Overall we had a good time - helped by some proper sunshine - and look forward to our return.
