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.

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.

This review is for Alton, The Star

No bus service (despite being advertised on the website) meant we had to use taxis to get to Alton Towers as the road isn't suitable for young kids. Unfortunately the nearest taxi firm that can take a family of 5 is about 10 miles away so we had to pay �15 each way for 2 days, �60 in total. It didn't spoil the holiday but it's worth factoring in if you're on a budget. Shower block is clean and showers are hot and free but could do with a bench or shelves to put clothes on. Pitches were great. Excellent playground to keep the kids busy. Whole site seemed very well maintained and I'm sure we'll be back but next time we might bring the car!

The only gripe I really have is that while the showers are big enough to have a shower they could really do with a curtain to keep your clean dry clothes dryer. The on site shop has a great option to buy single wash capsule so you can do a one off wash as we had to. This site is located just a few miles from alton towers theme park

This review is for Alton, The Star

The staff were really friendly and welcoming, what we didn't realise is how steep the site is and how many statics there are. We were on super service pitch which was mostly level but it was a steep walk to the toilet block, which for some reason was nearer the statics than the tourers. I have mobility issues and couldn't walk to the facilities so drove round, but were told off for going the wrong way around the one way system, what we had to do was go out of site, through barrier, come back into site, through barrier after entering the pin number, and down to the facilities which is very long winded if you are desperate for the loo! Must say that there are many local pubs doing food that are good. We won't go again but would be ok for people who are fit.

“A group of friends and myself stayed at this site for 3 nights. 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 holiday caravans are just one mile away from the theme park, meaning the whole family can enjoy a great value break!
