 I will start with first impressions. Wife rang to book a few weeks ago and because I had the caravan club card in my wallet and she didn't know the number, the lady on the phone was abrupt and nasty, great start. After getting all the info, wife rang back and booked with a nice gentleman on the phone.

On arrival, site is clean and very well kept, large pitches, but they do like to use all the available area's, even the grass between the hard standings, bit closer than the 6m rule!

Facilities were great and the toilet block has excellent showers (fully adjustable) very clean and tidy.

Down sides. Lady staff come across as things are too much trouble and they couldn't be bothered.

I went for gas one evening, usual scenario, 20 to five, middle of tea and it ran out. Hurriedly I disconnected the bottle, went to reception passing the 'calor gas' sign where I was told, 'we have none', sorry I said, there is a sign saying you sell it, 'we have ran out'. Oh I said, then thought why not say that in the first place, ah well I said, while I am here, I need to book another night please.

'Errrr, I am just about to cash up' (4. 51, only close at 5. 00), its card I said, 'That don't matter, Its still, errrr, go on, hurry up!'

Do they want the business I wonder?

Then over one weekend I go to the toilet (I have IBS) the block has the barrier across the door, oh no I think. I see a lady staff member in the washing up room so I ask how long the toilet block is closed for? She tells me about another 20 minutes, then with a sour retort 'There is a toilet there you know?', well actually, no I didn't know and having my close reading specs on I did not read the small sign on the door. OK, Thank you I said and swiftly entered the Toilet.

It doesn't take much to answer people politely and in a nice manner, if I was rude and nasty in my job, I would get nowhere.

Now it did rain a lot, but we are used to it. What we were not used to was wading through a large pool forming on our pitch in front of the awning door and I am not exaggerating when I say it was 2 inches deep and soaked over my trainers trying to get to the car.

I went to reception to let them know, just in case there may have been some kind of grid or soak away that required a little cleaning and was told, 'Oh yeah, that pitch does flood' then if you know, why not do something about it, or warn us when we choose from the 3 pitches available that that one floods?

And to top it off, one of the staff on site have a large dog that likes to bark at every gnat fart. First time we have heard it in 12 days, so must be new?

Great clean, well maintained site. 10 out of 10

Customer care and people skills 1 out of 10

I have only just joined the Caravan Club after a few years away, is this the sort of customer care I am to expect throughout the CC sites?

 Just returned from our first weekend at this site, which is situated in what looks like an industrial estate as you drive up to it. However as you turn into the sites driveway it is a lovely surprise as you catch a glimpse of the country park.

The site has the usual cc standard facilities- excellent toilet/shower block, laundry etc. The pitches are large and well spaced. We had a serviced pitch which was great as the water, waste & tv Ariel socket were right next to the pitch, it was a hardstanding pitch but the pegs went in easily.

The country park is lovely with great walks right off site & a lake which has has an accessible path all the way round. The closest town is Staveley which has limited smaller shops & a Morrisons with a petrol station attached. Robinsons caravans is also in Staveley for all your caravan needs.

We went to the Devonshire Arms which is in Middle Hanley, 10 mins drive, its dog friendly & serves good food, although a little expensive & only open in the evenings.

We didn't have time to explore the area further so we've booked to go back. If it was a little closer we would definitely go regularly

 As normal for a Caravan Club site, everything is kept perfect. The site is right next to a country park which is very handy for you dog lovers and for children. However, be aware that there is a lot of traffic noise which I'm not quite sure from where it comes. Of course the site can't be blamed for that, but it does spoil it.

 Loved this site. Stayed for 10 days. Great dog walking beside the site. It was very handy for visiting the Peak District. Lots of cycle trails can be reached near by. Site and facilities where Immaculate. Great Morrisons in Staveley. Credit to the wardens.

 Had a lovely two nights but this was not long enough, beautiful site, very very clean, large pitches very well laid out, very friendly wardens, handy for everything.

If you cant be bothered to do breakfast All Inn down the road do a help yourself breakfast for £3. 99

Very nice too. Open at 8. 30 am.

Poolsbrook country park next to site.

Just off junc 29 on M1 but we were not bothered by any road noise.

Cant wait to book in again, only 1 hour journey for us. Perfect.

Kids tend to congregate around toilet block on their scooters but were no bother.

 Good site, big pitches, all pretty much level and enough grass between for some privacy. Excellent toilet/services block, good TV reception and great access, even if it is through an industrial site.

Superb walks and cycle tracks right out the gate and huge play facilities for the little ones by the lake.

Lots of good eatimg houses and don't dismiss the 'The Little Castle' just off the M1 but accessed from the back just 0. 7 from the site: Out the site gate turn right and right again onto the road and straight ahead over 2 roundabouts and can see the pub. Carvery is excellent.

 One night transit stop enroute from Scotland to south coast.

Fine site for a touring stop as handy for the Mway.

Busy when we were there with only one free pitch and that was a bit flooded.

Good facilities.

 Visited this site on our shake down trip, never been before.

This site was a very pleasant surprise, it was pretty much perfect, the facilities were second to none and the pitches set out just right.

We like to cycle and though the weather was cold we managed to get out, this site is situated at the side of the trans pennine trail with great paths. We got on to the Chesterfield Canal tow path and went for about a mile the reason being we decided there and then that we would be back and save it for another trip when the weather was better.

Would I recommend this site, definitely!

 Just had our first night of the year away at Poolsbrook. Lovely site, good access from the M1, wardens were very friendly. Facilities were excellent caravan club standard. The walking around the pool is very nice, although lots of children around the café and play ground (only to be expected on a Saturday afternoon) disappointed that no dogs allowed in café. The only down side on site was a bunch of young children constantly riding round on their scooters, parents obviously oblivious to the pain that can be caused by cars hitting them, would they allow them to ride round a car park! A little common sense needed I think

 Lovely site set in a country park. Lovely friendly wardens. Site spotlessly clean and tidy. Clean toilet block. Peaceful and quiet site. Supermarket not to far away. Lovely lake to walk dog by. Hubby did a bit of fishing on the lakes in the country park.
