Enjoy the thrills of Alton Towers and beautiful Peak District from this Club Site.

The Peak District National Park is right on the doorstep of our Alton, The Star Club campsite. This attractive, well maintained family-friendly site is perfectly placed for Alton Towers theme park – just a mile from site. Similarly those who enjoy heading off into the great outdoors will not be disappointed with some great walking country right on the doorstep.

A bus stop right outside the site will deliver you to Alton Towers and its host of family attractions, ranging from adrenaline-fuelled roller coasters through to gentler rides for little ones, in minutes.

Carsington Water and Visitor Centre, north east of the campsite, offers a wide range of activities for all the family on and off the water including miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore, a children’s play area, fishing and many water sports.

While Stoke-on-Trent may not be an obvious tourist destination you can see the Anglo-Saxon treasures of The Staffordshire Hoard at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery here. There’s also the Wedgewood Visitor Centre full of artefacts, some dating back to Josiah Wedgewood – the man who started the pottery industry as we know it today.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Self-catering accommodation is available at this campsite.

Worth Noting

Some grass pitches are sloping, levellers are required. Caravan Holiday Homes are available for purchase and hire.

Eat Local

The Ramblers Retreat country restaurant and coffee house in Alton sells homemade meals. Ye Olde Star Inn, a 500 yard amble from the site is a 19th Century Traditional Inn with a great atmosphere, food served daily.

This review is for Alton, The Star

We choose the star caravan park to stay in every year due to the welcoming friendly staff, the playground that gives my children ample play space as well as being quiet when appropriate. We stayed in the large static caravan which was exceptionally clean and tidy. We will be returning yet again next year.

Caravan was lovely. Site is very family friendly. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. The site is. Close to alton towers and only an hours drive to drayton manor (thomas land) would highly recommend it to any one with children. As its very safe for children to play. Cant wait to book up again for next year. My youngest child is 7 and didnt want to leave

I booked a 2 night stay in the self catering family comfort caravan.

This review is for Alton, The Star

I booked a 2 night stay in the self catering family comfort caravan. I have 3 young children but was hugely disappointed at the tired old caravan I'd been given on arrival. I strongly feel I was given this caravan because of the young age of my children. I have stayed at many caravan parks of a superior quality and this was the most basic and old fashioned. It had chipped radiators and a fire with no trim. Also found an icelolly paper under the extremely lumpy spring mattress in the kids room. On booking I was informed of the need to bring sheets but no duvet covers. On arrival I needed both as basic bare beds and duvets supplied. Also I was not informed of the need to pay �100 deposit altho I had paid in full. This was not credited to my account until 5 days after checking out. I find this unacceptable. The caravan also had no light apart from the main ceiling light so no lamps at night. Very tired but needs updating and attention as could be a great caravan to stay in. I have young children but I am very clean and tidy and respectful of my hired accommodation and would appreciate an accommodation worthy of my needs.a disappointing stay I'm afraid.

“A group of friends and myself stayed at this site for 3 nights in June 2012. The site were brilliant and accommodating with our requests. The wardens were really friendly and chatty. The self catering caravan we stayed in was immaculate and even blankets were in the wardrobes which was good as the evenings were a little chilly. No complaints about the 'van and within 5 mins drive of Alton Towers (our main reason for the choice of site) As with any other club site, I would not hesitate in recommending this site or returning, I'm already planning a return trip next year!”

- Kizzi

The Club's eight holiday caravans are just one mile away from the theme park, meaning the whole family can enjoy a great value break!
