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

All grass pitches are sloping, therefore levelling blocks 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.

Visited the site for the half term as ideally suited for local attractions.

This review is for Alton, The Star

Visited the site for the half term as ideally suited for local attractions. The site is easy to get to towing a van, the staff were very friendly and helpful and got into the Halloween spirit! My daughters loved their stay. I would definitely recommend this site. ideal for the peaks as well as Alton towers, Matlock only 30 mins away. The site itself is on a slope but all the hardstandings are levelled. take chocks if you stay on grass. The site is well maintained, clean and tidy. The shop/reception doesn't have a huge selection but shops are not too far away. There is a family room with a bath for little ones. The only downside I would say about my visit is the showers. I went for showers in the evening and the water was cold, I don't know if this is the same in the mornings but bear in mind. Also due to no shower curtains either your clothing gets wet or you place it outside the shower cubicle. That being said would visit again, if there's hot water.

“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!
