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.

Eat Local

This review is for Leek

Lovely site with magnificent views and walks to the Roaches and easy walk to Tittisworth reservoir with a good visitors centre. Bus outside site to Leek which is a very pretty market town with interesting Victorian architectural buildings and bus to Buxton which is another gorgeous town, 5 minutes walk up the road on a path, outside an excellent Pub the Three Horseshoes. Taxi from Leek �7, Taxi from Buxton �15. Great walks, lovely peaceful site with helpful staff and good showers.

We had a friendly welcome from Steve Horne and his wife.

This review is for Leek

We had a friendly welcome from Steve Horne and his wife. Who were busy around the site most of the time we were there. The toilet blocks and showers were very clean with very hot water. There had been a lot of rain and they were struggling to drain the water away from some of the hard standings. This site is really well placed for touring the southern peak District and the Roches. Also Stoke on Trent and Chatsworth. We went on some lovely walks in the Roches, Dovedale and also old drovers tracks. We also had a fun time painting mugs at the Emma Bridgewater factory. This site though does require attention. The main criticism is, why no hair driers in the shower block. It is not good to have to walk outside to access the toilet block and the hairdryer. It would not be difficult to knock a door through the wall between the showers and the toilets. Even better close off the shower entrance and realign showers along the wall. Thus allowing three showers to be installed instead of two. Thank you though to the hard working wardens.
