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

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

The Leek site is very well run, everywhere is clean and tidy, which shows the Wardens work hard to care and look after this site. The facilities are very good, as you would expect on a club site. This site is generally quiet as out in the country, with the sounds of nature to be heard around as you wake in the morning. Just a Short distance from the site is the Tittesworth Reservoir, which has lovely walks, visitor centre and cafe. Leek is a lovely market town, but did not have much time there. Seems to be plenty of good places to eat out at in local area. Because this site is so close to the Peak District, we will certainly consider a longer stay at this site in the future, as many places of interest to discover in such a beautiful area. Finally the staff were very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our short stay.

We arrived just before 1pm and was made clear would have to wait till 1 before entering.

This review is for Leek

We arrived just before 1pm and was made clear would have to wait till 1 before entering. Not even allowing us enter car park. Lovely site but could not relax in case we upset the staff. Put a windbreak up to ensure we could keep our young grandchildren away from road. Was told would have to remove because of fire regs. 6 mts between units. Despite there being a road both sides of pitch. I suspect this was to enabled them to cut the grass the following day. Not really suitable for children playground very small with no ball games allowed anywhere. Too restrictive with signs and rules everywhere. Shame lovely spot but couldn't relax.

This is only a small site. The facilities are first class and kept spotlessly clean.

This review is for Leek

This is only a small site. The facilities are first class and kept spotlessly clean. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The pitches are maintained to a very high standard and the grass mown regularly. Leek town is quite old and has a lot of individual shops as well as the usual multiples. Buxton, Bakewell and Ashbourne are all within easy reach. Tittesworth Resevoir is about 3 miles distant and is well worth a visit particularly if you like bird watching. There is a lovely Visitor Centre with a small café and car parking overlooking the Resevoir. The Three Horshoes pub just up the road (turn left as you leave the site) do fantastic meals. I cannot recommend this site too highly.
