Nestled within an attractive pine plantation, Carsington Water Caravan Club Site (formerly Blackwall Plantation) in Ashbourne is beautifully landscaped, with pitches in open clearings separated by trees. This gives the caravan park residents a privacy and quiet which many appreciate during the busy summer months. Improvements to the toilet block and facilities, including a new drying room, were undertaken in Winter 2011/12
Carsington Reservoir, a major attraction in the area, is conveniently adjacent to the Carsington Water Caravan Club Site (formerly Blackwall Plantation). A mere 15 minutes walk will bring you to its great selection of leisure facilities including fishing, sailing, windsurfing and children’s playground. The caravan site is also an excellent base for walkers wishing to explore the beautiful scenery of Dovedale and the surrounding countryside. The local villages, all with excellent pubs and restaurants offering hearty food, are only a three mile stroll away. As you travel around the region exploring, look out for examples of Derbyshire’s home grown art – Well Dressing – which happens in many villages from May to September.
