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 7 pubs in the one village, you will never go thirsty! There are plenty of opportunities to go fishing both in the locality and in designated areas within our marina if that is your thing. We are constantly striving to improve facilities for visitors to the marina and we are pleased with our latest addition of a new for 2018 season, purpose-built Services Block. This houses Toilets, Showers, Pot Washing and Launderette facilities.
Yay! We are open again for the 2019 season after our February Break and we look forward to welcoming all our visitors, old and new.

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.
