 Quiet pretty little site, nice flat spacious pitches in small enclaves, makes a nice change from straight rows.

Two toilet blocks, although a little dated, plenty of hot water in the showers and no queues.

Good WiFi and TV signal through the hook up. Lots to do in the surrounding area and very friendly wardens.

Will definitely visit again if only for Monty's Fish and Chips in Leek and next time will try some of the local pubs within walking distance.

 Easy check-in but convoluted instruction to dip finger in sponge (apparently to avoid licking finger to take a leaflet!). Advised on appropriate pitch for small campervan.

Strong farmyard smell on arrival but didn't notice after a while. Walk leaflets and good advice on how to access walks.

The Roaches and Hen Cloud were well worth the door to door 6-7 miles with some climbing up rocky paths - stunning views.

Roaches Tea Rooms has 2 parking all day with direct access to footpaths if you need to avoid main road walk from site.

Good value and would return for stunning walks nearby.

 Nice well laid out site. We arrived and checked in at the window as it was a weekday the site was quiet so we had a great choice of pitches, we took a huge pitch at the back of the site away from the road, which was divided by high hedges.

The toilet facilities were usual club standard with wristband access. Never had to queue for a shower. The top toilet block was closed but had dish wash and chemical toilet disposal. There is a good dog walk on site round the perimeter.

There are good longer walks round Tittesworth reservoir and the Roaches Ridge. Luds Church gorge is well with a visit. We also walked into Leek, a good way is via the reservoir.

There are buses to Leek and Buxton but are infrequent.

We would return.

 We have stayed at this site many times as it's fairly local to our home. It was our first venture out this year due to Covid-19 shielding but we wanted to check everything over before our main holiday in North Devon.

The site was clean tidy and well run as usual but, . The top toilet block is shut and only two toilets and two showers in the main one were in use, when not closed for additional cleaning and only two people at a time can enter the building, (rubber wrist band hung on pegs, so no free pegs, you must queue until there is one.

Not ideal for I guess would be approximately 200 people as the site was full. To reduce pressure on these facilities we were asked to use our own facilities in our vans as much as possible.

However, during our stay, things changed for the better, top marks to the lady warden who argued with head office for quite some time to be allowed to alter it to 2 in toilets plus 2 in showers at the same time. A victory for common sense and social distancing still observed.

 The queue was really long in the hot sunshine - staff only communicate through a window - it took ages.

There was an awful smell of farmyard which pervaded the entire place - staff were cutting back the hedges and it was very noisy - we could hear road noise throughout the night.

My 4g didn't work properly and the television signal was rubbish.

There was only 1 facility open the other one was closed - why? There was tape all over the place and bins had been moved - again why? The chemical toilet emptying was a right pain to get to - we ended up going under barriers to access it - why?

We left after 1 night I couldn't stand the smell any more. Such a disappointment.

 I have given this site top marks and believe that wardens up and down the country should visit it and take example as to how a site should be. In my opinion, the level of customer service, the attention to detail with maintenance, the cleanliness of the whole site and enthusiasm of the current wardens should be applauded.

On the side of a hill, the site is terraced, surrounded by trees but not under tree cover, light and airy. Various small avenues to pitch on with ample room to negotiate position on each pitch. We chose the top of the site, furthest away from the main road in and our pitch was huge with low hedging to separate us from the next pitch. The hedging creates an element of privacy but doesn't isolate you at all from other campers.

Two toilet blocks, both equally clean and used respectfully by other clientele of the site. Small play area next to toilet block in the top of the site. Dog walk around the edge of the site enables an early morning, last thing at night dog walk, safe and adequate.

Around the site there are various ornaments, gardenalia, flower beds and even a wormery.

I applaud this site also for keeping lighting at night to a minimum. Some sites feel the need to try and compete with Blackpool illuminations but this site, less was definitely appreciated but still very safe to walk around after dark although we always carry a torch. It meant the night sky, crystal clear full of stars was very visible and beautiful to see.

We loved this site and wish it could be lifted up and repositioned in the middle of a national park or country estate as alas, our only niggle but a niggle to make us not visit again, the A53. We walk everywhere when away and the only way to and from the site to the few walks available without a compass and O/S map is a slim pavement alongside this busy 50 mph speed limit road which is used by farm vehicles, commuters and HGV'S alike. No chance of a conversation without shouting above the road noise, goodness knows what fumes are being inhaled and when a juggernaut passes, well, the draft does move you. If you use a vehicle to get around the area then this would not be something to put you off the site but for us, it took the edge off what was a really nice few days away and THE reason we will not return.

Please please caravan club officialdom, use the standard of this site at all your sites and you cannot go far wrong.

 First time out with our new caravan, so just a short trip to this site.

Access - great - new CAMC signs in both directions. Wide access and good holding point.

All the pitches seemed pretty level all hardstanding form first glance.

Although you feel in the country side (lots of trees) there is road noise. We were about a 1/3 of the way up the site and the sound of empty quarry waggons was noticeable from around 6:00AM. I'm sure that if you pitch further up the site the noise will be less noticeable.

We only ate out once. At the Reform Inn - disappointing - Gammon salty, pasta bland, lasagne sloppy.

There are plenty of other places to try.

Go to the Roaches tearoom - great lunches and cakes - but no beer!

 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.
