Peddling at Poolsbrook

Getting back out and about following lockdown, our second trip took us to Poolsbrook Country Park in Derbyshire.

The site is right on the coast to coast route of the Trans Pennine Trail which is great for biking families as it is pretty flat. Our two are just getting used to their bikes so this was the perfect spot to practice.

Just outside the gates and down the hill is a large lake to walk round (1 mile), and a fabulous children’s play area.

On a Friday night a wood fired pizza van stops by with delicious and reasonably priced fresh cooked pizzas. There is also a chippy about 1 mile down the Trans Pennine Trail which is just close enough to ride there and back and sit outside your rig.

Because of the lake there are lots of friendly ducks waddling round the site. They are very tame and the kids loved following them about.

All in all a great site with a warm welcome. We would definitely come back.
