Welcome to Shardlow Marina & Caravan Park

In a rural setting in the historic canal-side village of Shardlow lies our Leisure Marina, Touring Caravan & Holiday Home site. Right upon the river Trent and within a stones throw of both the river Derwent and Trent & Mersey Canal. It was an important location in days gone by and the heydays of the canal. But even today there is a lot to see and do around this historic village. A visit to the village Heritage Centre is always worthwhile and you will find historical information boards around the village too. There are walks galore for the active, both around the village and across the surrounding countryside. And with 8 pubs in the one village, you will never go thirsty!

We welcome MOTORHOMES, TOURING CARAVANS and TENTS on our campsite, 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 Park section. There is a Rally Field for groups of 15 or more caravans or motorhomes who do not require the use of our facilities and more information can be obtained by contacting our office on 01332 792832.

Leisure & High Usage Moorings are available in the marina, please check our Moorings page under the Marina heading, 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 Marina is a popular location for holiday makers so this is a great opportunity to acquire the holiday home of your dreams in a sought-after location.

We supply homes from most of the major manufacturers. Please contact our office for more details on how you can purchase a holiday home on our park.

Historical Shardlow…

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, restaurants and waterside walks, 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.

Marina Wi-Fi

We have a site-wide Wi-Fi system that can be accessed by short & long stay visitors. Details can be obtained from the Marina Office/Reception

Pubs & Restaurants

We have 8 pubs in the village so you are never likely to go hungry or thirsty. There is also a Chinese and an Indian Restuarant.
