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.

The pretty campsite offers camping all year round. 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.

Eat Local

The Wednesday market I Leek sells local produce and there are monthly farmers' markets in Bakewell, Matlock, Buxton, Castleton and Whaley Bridge.

This review is for Leek

With my dog, the Hobbit, I'd been travelling for 5 weeks, touring the country and seeing friends. After a lot of one & two night stays I needed to put down roots for a few days and this site gave me the ideal opportunity. I was welcomed by Dave & Izzy who couldn't have been more helpful. I was given a pitch close to the drinking water point which was a real bonus and, quite importantly, near the dog walk. The site has all the facilities you'd expect and everywhere was clean & tidy with plenty of hot water in the showers. Dave made me aware of which nearby pubs were dog friendly and which were not. To be fair, most are, but unfortunately not the closest, the Three Horseshoes which is more of a restaurant than a pub. Leek and Buxton are the two closest towns both Market towns and quite charming with nice shops and many dog friendly pubs. We didn't want to do a lot having had a tiring few weeks but did take time to visit Ilam House and Park although I was actually more interested in the walking possibilities than the house. We strolled over the hills to Dovedale and then on to the famous Stepping stones which feature in every advert for the Peak District. All in all a lovely site in a lovely part of the world even in a wet October. I'd definitely go back in the summer but outside school holidays. I should also mention that Dave's wife Tina is very nice too but she was cutting the grass when I arrived so I didn't get to meet her straight away.

This review is for Leek

This was our first stay at the Leek site and we arrived after five in the evening but as we had told the staff we would be late the reception was kept open for us. It was dark by this time so a pitch was found where the lights helped us to park up, as an added bonus it was very close to the spotlessly kept toilet block. The only slight negative point was not C&CC's fault but the inconsiderate builders had built the nearest pub about half a mile away along an unlit road! Lovely site though.

This review is for Leek

We had booked onto another site (not c&c) that had got the dates of our stay wrong. They had no room for us so I contacted Leek who were really helpful at finding space for us. They were very friendly and sorted us out without a problem which was great after being in the car for almost 6 hours. Site was clean and tidy, close to the main road but this didn't disturb us at all. Possibly could do with more women's showers but other than that, really handy for the southern end of the Peak District and very helpful staff.

Buxton,Bakewell and Ashbourne are within easy reach from the site and are all worth visiting.

This review is for Leek

Buxton,Bakewell and Ashbourne are within easy reach from the site and are all worth visiting.The site has mainly hardstands which means paying the extra �1 for the pitch and on our 2 visits this year we have been required to take as the grass pitches were not in use due to them being too wet.We received a warm welcome at reception and were quickly shown to our pitch where we were helped in unhitching and locating the caravan.The facilities are really good and kept in spotless condition.The town of Leek has a wide variety of individual shops and several super markets.For oat cake lovers please be aware that the famous oatcake shop opposite Aldi does not open on a Monday.On this visit the site was not very well used which was a shame considering the reasonably fine weather and the many attractions in the area.Tittesworth reservoir has a fine restaurant and gift shop and plenty of parking.We would recommend this site and will certainly visit again in early 2015.
