Motorhome Hire in Derbyshire
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience a few days away in a motorhome in Derbyshire. No driving required as I will deliver & set-up the motorhome ready for you to arrive. There will be room to park your car next to the fully equipped motorhome. This is ideal for anyone wanting to experience the motorhome lifestyle prior to purchasing one themselves. It can be sited on a few campsites locally, but one of the best is Shardlow Marina & Caravan Park. This site and surrounding village has so much to see and do.

SITED MOTORHOME HIRE
This is a "Static" or "Non-Driving" Option to hire a motorhome fully set up on an Electric Hook-up Pitch at Shardlow Marina & Caravan Park in Derbyshire. Other campsites may be available although Shardlow Marina is an idilic site for Walking, Cycling, Fishing or Generally Chilling out. WIth the new Shower and toilet block opening early in the 2018 season, it has all the facilities required for a stress-free time. Just bring your own Food, Pillows and Sleeping Bags/Bedding and the motorhome will be ready to move into. There are so many places to eat out however, you could skip bringing the food!.. You should try the "Full English" at the Marina Bar or The New Inn.
The motorhome will be sited on a camping field overlooking the picturesqe Marina with over a hundred boats of all descriptions, shapes and sizes. Fishing is available on the marina in designated areas but you still need a rod licence. If you don't have one, these are available from the local village post office. There is the loan of a basic fishing kit in the motorhome including 2 rods and reels. Wi-Fi is also available around the marina (Chargeable locally)
The village has numerous things and places to see. There is a walk down the canal tow path with two pubs right next to the water. Or you can take a longer stroll down the river by the private fishing lakes and over the Pack Horse Bridge that crosses the river Trent and then follow the Trent & mersey canal from where it enters the river. At this point the River Derwent also joins. Walks across the fields alongside the Derwent are also picturesque.
When it comes to night time entertainment you will be spoilt for choice. With live acts performing at a few of the local pubs every weekend, you can combine fine dining at quality restaurants and a good old bop-til-you-drop at one of the pubs. And all within walking distance.If you just want to chill and have a "Duvet-day" with a good book or film, that is possible too. There are two DVD/TV units in the motorhome. And a small stash of DVDs to choose from... So stay in bed and watch or sit in the dinette. You are guaranteed to be comfy with the Air Conditioning Unit or Heating System on. The Marina Shop also have a selection of secondhand books and DVDs to buy for a donation to charity! I will ensure that the fridge is nice and cool too, in case you bring any food, beer or wine. Fancy a take away? You can walk to the Chinese in one direction or Indian in the other direction.
On-site is the popular Smithy's Marina Bar. There's always a live band for Weekend Entertainment and the food is good every day of the week! Smithy's is only a few hundred meters from where the Motorhome is sited
