Castle Camping

from £11.00 to £14.00 Family + unit
Select Section

Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

An established family run site we are looking to continually improve the visitor experience. We are grateful for the patience of our patrons during 2015 as work to provide the new toilet/shower block progressed. Fully opened in March 2016 and provides 6 toilets; 4 showers; (including family room with shower, toilet and washbasin); separate washbasins; indoor and outdoor (under cover) dish washing facilities; fridge; and freezer. 2016’s work will focus on landscaping around the shower block and levelling a section of the field, providing more camping area. Winter will see us spending time on the hard-standing areas. What we cannot improve are the views. The almost 360° views over the Biddulph Valley, Stoke-on-Trent, Peak District, Cheshire Plain to Wales, Greater Manchester and Merseyside are spectacular, both day and night - worth a stay on their own! Excellent transport links – rail Kidsgrove and Congleton; road A34, A50, A500, M6 – make the campsite an ideal base for visiting local attractions – National Trust in Biddulph, Congleton, and Mow Cop; pottery museums in Stoke –on –Trent; Joderell Bank; to name a few. Also an outstanding location for walkers, with numerous footpaths close by, in particular the South Cheshire Way, Staffordshire Way and Gritstone Trail.

This review is for Castle Camping

Stunning 360 degree views from a peaceful rural location, small and friendly atmosphere, great facilities and friendly reception. Great facilities in the shower block, plenty of toilets and sinks with soap and towels, very clean and welcoming. We were met and put in a great position, enjoyed our stay (we weren't fully prepared to cook but the local Chinese delivered free within 20 mins of our order!) Menu's for local eateries are in the shower block Stunning views across the counties and a lovely walk, with our dog, up to Mow Cop. Looking forward to staying again

This review is for Castle Camping

Lovely location with views across Cheshire to the West, and to the Peak District in the East The location is superb, with glorious sunsets across the Cheshire plain. It can be exposed however when the weather is inclement. The toilet block is excellent , and the rates charged for camping very reasonable. The only minor negative point I would make is that the site is still a bit untidy in places following construction of the toilet block, and could do with a spring clean to get rid of the left over builder's rubble, and some new planting adding. Overall, a very good CS.

Cannot understand previous reviews.

This review is for Castle Camping

Cannot understand previous reviews. The site is not at all as they describe We were put on the uneven camping field. Impossible to level caravan because of slopes. There were 9 caravans, 1 motorhome plus several tents. We took a video in case we are challenged to prove these numbers. No room. Crammed in. There should be an emergency phone line for the club to report these sites that overbook and do not follow the 5 units rule. Booked for 3 nights but only stayed 1 as it was so bad. Should have known something was wrong when the warden asked for money before we had even pitched up.
