About Michelle (My Shell - Get it?)

Sited at Shardlow Marina & Caravan Park in Derbyshire, This is a "Static" or "Non-Driving" Option to hire a motorhome. Ideal to "Try-before-buy" your own motorhome or just fancy a few days getting away from it all. You'll find it set up on an Electric Hook-up Pitch in an idilic location which is perfect for Walking, Cycling, Fishing or Generally Chilling out. Whilst the motorhome has its own Shower & Toilet, there is also a new Shower and toilet block planned for opening early season 2018.

The motorhome has all the facilities for a stress-free time. Just bring your own Food, Pillows and Sleeping Bags/Bedding and the motorhome will be ready to move into. And it is "Toasty Warm" in winter. The local village of Shardlow has so many places to eat out however, you could quite easily get away without bringing any food!.. From superb "Full English" breakfasts at the on-site Marina Bar or local pub The New Inn, to a fantastic Tapas Tipico menu at the Navigation Pub situated at the end of the drive! You have got to try their massive Sangria ...amazing!

If you fancy a take away or eat-in, there is an Indian Restaurant and a Chinese Restaurant both within walking distance. There are actually 8 pubs that all offer something different from Real Ales to Pub-Grub Chains. And all within staggering distance!

There are walks to be taken in every direction. Down tow paths, across fields and along the length of the rivers Trent and Derwent. Or you can take a longer stroll to the private fishing lakes on the other side of the river.

If you like night time entertainment with live acts, you will find them performing locally in pubs every weekend, you can combine fine dining at quality restaurants and "bop-til-you-drop" all within walking distance.

If you just want to chill and have a "Duvet-day" you can curl up with a good book or film. There are two DVD/TV units in the motorhome and a small stash of DVDs to choose from. You will find the motorhome quite comfy with the Air Conditioning Unit or Heating System on and I will ensure that the fridge is nice and cool too, perfect for any food, beer or wine you bring.

Fishing is available on the marina in designated areas (£5 per day Chargeable locally) but you still need a rod licence. You are welcome to borrow my basic fishing kit including 2 rods and reels. This is NOT professional gear though... As a fisherman I make a good Tennis Player! So if you are that fussy, bring your own!

Wi-Fi is also available around the marina (Chargeable locally) Or you can hire our own Mobile Wi-Fi for £5 per day
