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.

Toilets seemed to be short on water pressure and failed to flush if they been used just before.

This review is for Leek

Toilets seemed to be short on water pressure and failed to flush if they been used just before. Pitches in the wooded area where on top of each other and very dull. If you go ask for a pitch on the main field as these benefited from full sun and great views.

We stayed at Leek over the Easter weekend 2017.

This review is for Leek

We stayed at Leek over the Easter weekend 2017. We were visiting relatives in Cheshire as well as checking out our new caravan, so we had a busy weekend. The site is split into two sections, an open field area ideal for tents but with a few hard standings and an enclosed area with more formal hard standing pitches under trees and shrubs. There are two toilet blocks, one is in the building where reception is housed, one is 'newer' and is between the two parts of the site. This one is quite small, having just two WC's, two sinks and two shower cubicles in each set of facilities. There is no Elsan point at this block. Over the cool Easter Weekend the heating in this block was largely ineffective. The other block was warmer, three WC's and open sinks, plus two shower cubicles in separate adjacent rooms. In total only 4 Male and 4 female showers for 70 pitches, not exactly generous. We showered in the new van. The toilets were clean and the closing times for cleaning are well staggered. They are not that far apart so if one is closed it is no big deal to use the other. On arrival we were shown a tantalising glimpse of a laminated map of the site, but did not get to keep a copy. So I had to search for a water tap and the waste bins when I needed them There is only one Elsan point that I could find. This caused much queuing first thing in the morning. The hard standing areas in the enclosed part of the site are old, and in need of a refresh. They are very uneven and only just big enough for a caravan and tow car. The road-ways under the trees still had the tree droppings from last autumn/winter, giving them a decidedly untidy look. There is a security barrier as you enter the site and you are given the code at reception on arrival. Except the code changes on a Monday and no one bothered to warn us.

This review is for Leek

The amenities let the site down as the bottom toilet block was not very warm, the heaters are inadequate. The shower water was also only luke warm and could not be adjusted. Someone told me the top toilet block near reception was much warmer. The CC club need to invest some money to correct this as apart from this basic service the site is run very well and the cleanliness of the toilet block was excellent.
