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.

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.

The family loved the site, very friendly site members, the children made many friends in the play area, clean facilities, beware the site is on a slight slope when camping over all a wonderful site and the bonus there is a great little pub restaurant just down the road.

This review is for Alton, The Star

We arrived as a group of 9 needing two pitches. We were given a few options of where to go. All staff were friendly. The shop was useful but perhaps could be opened a little earlier as campers often need milk before 9 am and having no fridge facilities we relied on the shop. The showers/toilets were thoroughly cleaned every day and most of the visitors kept them tidy. It is only a 5 minute drive to Alton Towers which isn't suitable to walk as the roads are too narrow. We also did an 18 mile bike ride along a disused railway line which was brilliant too. We spent the evenings at the campsite sitting outside. We found that most people were respectful of each others space and the 11 pm all to be quiet rule was mostly upheld. The park for younger children was well maintained and appeared safe. A lovely atmosphere at the site and we will return when we can afford to take the many monsters to Alton Towers again. As an additional note, one of the many monsters dropped his wallet and was handed in intact by a fellow happy camper and was returned to us once we provided a recorded delivery envelope for them. Thank you for sorting that out for us. Much appreciated by us and the monster.

“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!”
