Derbyshire Reports

Shardlow, Derbyshire

Review of Shardlow by jane preston on August 27th, 2006
Shardlow is a quiet village ,there are several good pubs serving decent meals , the Navigation was very good .The canal and river are pretty and provide good walking . We camped on the marina we found this site to be of a poor standard a busy Bank Holiday weekend meant there were at least fifty plus tents in addition to caravans . The toilet and shower block were shabby and dirty , the shower facilites and toilets were inadequate to cope with the number of people on site,to add insult to injury we had to pay 50p for the privilege of showering . Needless to say we only ventured in there once W e had the luxury of the portaloos near us these were changed once but in between were not checked .Ok I am not a die hard camper but I do expect a certain level of cleanliness and standard of facilities .On a plus point there is a bar restaurant on site and I can t fault that it served good food at a reasonable price .To summarize Shardlow Marina needs to invest in prviding decent shower and toilet blocks and hire a cleaner .
