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

The Peak District National Park is right on the doorstep of our Alton, The Star Club campsite. If you are looking for Alton Towers camping, this attractive, well maintained family-friendly site is perfectly placed, being just a mile from the theme park. 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

Caravan holiday homes and Self Catering holidays available. Super Service pitches overlook the play area. If towing, approach the site from the North, avoid travelling through Cheadle. All grass pitches are sloping - levelling blocks will be required.

Eat Local

Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Café, located in a barn, sells Farm's own beef as well as local vegetables, cheeses, cakes, gifts and beers from some of the region's best independent suppliers. The Star Pub is 500 yrds from the site entrance.

Just got back from a ten night stay.

This review is for Alton, The Star

Just got back from a ten night stay. Really friendly welcome from the staff on arrival, even lending me a piece of missing equipment until I could get to B&Q. Clean and spacious with good facilities, only loosing a star for those awful push button showers. Stayed on a full service pitch which was great. The Star pub, a 5min walk away does great well priced food. The site is ideal for Alton Towers and the Derbyshire countryside. Would go back.

We stayed here so we could take our kids to Alton Towers.

This review is for Alton, The Star

We stayed here so we could take our kids to Alton Towers. The site is clean and well organised with all the facilities you would expect and a nice pub within walking distance. While we were staying we experienced a "technical hitch" which was a nightmare but the staff went out of their way to help us, we could not have asked for more. I would definitely recommend this place.

“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!
