Welcome to Shardlow Marina & Caravan Park
Situated in a rural setting in the historic canal-side village of Shardlow lies our Liesure Marina, Touring Caravan & Holiday Home site. Situated upon the river Trent and within a stones throw of both the river Derwent and Trent & Mersey Canal. There are walks galore for the active, plenty of oportunities to go fishing both in the locality and in designated areas within our marina and Smithy's Bar and Restaurant on site.
We welcome MOTORHOMES, TOURING CARAVANS and TENTS on our Touring Field Site, which is flat and overlooks the boats in the marina. We have both Electric and Non-Electric Pitches available with toilet, shower and Laundry facilities - Details can be found on our Touring Caravan section. There is a Rally Field for groups of 10 or more caravans who do not require the use of our faciities and more information can be obtained by contacting our office.
Leisure & High Usage Moorings are available in the marina, please check our moorings page for more details.
We also have two separate Holiday Home sites for privately owned Static Caravans, Park Homes and Luxury Lodges. We do not have any holiday homes which we rent out, they are all privately owned. Details of how to purchase a Holiday Home can be found in the Holiday Home section of this site.
Shardlow Village has a unique place in the history of the country - The 18th century canal port, with its associated wharves and warehouses is clearly to be seen. Originally a river port, Shardlow developed greatly with the opening of the Trent & Mersey Canal in 1770. The decline of the business brought different uses for the warehouses but the area remains remarkably unchanged. With canal-side pubs and restaurants (8 pubs in one village!) there is plenty to see and do. We are easy to find and convenient for the Derbyshire Dales and the National Forest. East Midlands Airport is close-by and both Derby and Nottingham with its Robin Hood country are all within easy reach. A 24 hour bus service travels between Derby and Leicester calling in at EMA, the market town of Loughborough and numerous villages along the way.
