About this place

Nestled into the beautiful countryside on the edge of the National Forest in South Derbyshire, Springwood Fisheries offers you the chance to come and appreciate the great outdoors in picturesque surroundings.

The campsite has many camping and glamping pitches which are well laid out and dotted around the two fishing lakes; the lakes are bordered by mature trees and shrubs and it is a very pretty place to relax.

There are 22 electric hook-ups for caravans and motorhomes (6 on hard standing) and many of these are lakeside with great views. The site also has a large grassy area which is perfect for tents and campervans or those not requiring an electric hook up.

In addition to the touring pitches, Springwood Fisheries also have glamping accommodation in the form of very cosy log pods; if you like the idea of camping but don’t have your own tent or caravan, then these are perfect.

There is a choice of either a standard pod or a deluxe pod and they both have beds for 4, a TV and DVD, kettle, microwave, fridge, table and chairs and a decking area at the front of the pod with great views over the lake. Each pod also has its own hardstanding parking space right next door. The deluxe pods have the added luxury of an en-suite shower room and toilet.

All the pods and pitches are spaced out well and have lovely views across the campsite and the two lakes. If you have come for the fishing you won’t be disappointed. Bottom Lake and Top Lake are very well stocked with many different varieties of fish including Common, Mirror, Ghost Carp, Roach, Chub and Ide.

Anyone staying can have a go at fishing for a small fee. Facilities at the campsite are good, with toilets, shower blocks, washing up areas, a chemical disposal point and a cafe if you fancy an excellent cooked breakfast after a morning of fishing. They also provide hot drinks and snacks throughout the day.

Springfield Fisheries is a quiet and peaceful site, and you are extremely well located here to explore some of what Derbyshire has to offer, if you can cope with leaving the angling alone for a day or two!

The nearby house and gardens of Calke Abbey - owned by the National Trust- is just five minutes drive away and makes for a fantastic day trip. With 600 acres of stunning parkland to explore, you can cycle or walk around the trails and spot fallow deer and other wildlife.

The mansion itself is extraordinary to visit; it is the place where time - literally - has stood still; the 20th-Century house has been preserved by the National Trust and kept exactly as it was found, meaning you can see a clear picture of what life was like in an era gone by. Wander through abandoned rooms and halls with peeling wallpaper and a huge collection of unusual and unique objects that were all left beyond exactly where they were. It is a site to behold.

Also close by is Donnington Park - one of the world's foremost race circuits, the Gardens at Melbourne Hall and the Foremark Reservoir.
