Overview

  • Campsite is located within a National Park

    Site within National Park

A great base to explore the Peak District and the Potteries.

Our Leek Club campsite located in the Staffordshire Moorlands and with the southern Peak District within a stone’s throw will appeal to those campers who enjoy nothing more than a good walk to take in the local area.

Bordered by trees and some sheltered pitches, the site has a good range of facilities including two facility blocks, a small children’s play area and dog walk.

A little north of the campsite the Roaches, a craggy outcrop of rocks, provides a playground for climbers while its miles of paths satisfy seasoned ramblers. The villages of Upper Hulme and Meerbrook populate the area. The latter has a reservoir, Tittesworth, which is within walking distance of Leek campsite. There are pleasant walks around the shores and at the north end bird hides. There is also a Visitors Centre, adventure playground and picnic area.

Another great way to enjoy the local scenery is to take a ride on a train. South of the campsite the Churnet Valley Railway wends its way through beautiful countryside known as Staffordshire’s “Little Switzerland”. Hop on board a steam train at The Foxfield Steam Railway, Stoke-on-Trent, and enjoy a five-and-a-half mile journey through north Staffordshire countryside.

Leek campsite is also well placed to explore the Potteries. Stoke-on-Trent south of the site has several museums and galleries dedicated to the ceramic industry which gave the Potteries its name.

Other days out from the campsite include Alton Towers theme park, Chatsworth House, Blackbrook Zoological Parkand the National Trust’s Ilam Park near Ashbourne.

Worth Noting

50 all-weather pitches available, however we require awnings to be pitched on hardstandings, therefore steel pegs may be required. Some pitches are sloping and chocks are required. No area for ball games.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Site within easy distance of Buxton and Leek. Try the wonderful oatcake shop in Leek. Fantastic. Great walks close to the site and further afield the Monsal Trail and Rudyard Lake walks are wonderful. One of the best site we have stayed on which made for a wonderful holiday. The weather helped too.

Lots of children, but tiny play area.

This review is for Leek

Lots of children, but tiny play area. Lots of dogs but the smallest dog walk, lots of campers but only 2 toilets, I found it over crowded and noisy. Close to town, supermarket etc, just not the peaceful break I had hoped for.

Local area good for all levels of walking and climbing.

This review is for Leek

Local area good for all levels of walking and climbing. Top chip shop in Leek market square. Worth a family bike ride in 'Manifold Valley'. It is almost flat. Tittesworth Reservoir is a good day out, and the cafe is restaurant quality at a fair price. On site children park was enough to keep our 9 yr old happy. Safe site for the children.
