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.

Great site chosen due to location being near Alton Towers.

This review is for Alton, The Star

Great site chosen due to location being near Alton Towers. Staff are excellent, friendly and welcoming and we were escorted to our pitch. Site was well maintained and both the large and small shower block were very clean and well stocked ( although small block is a bit dated). Staff have good knowledge of the surrounding roads and attractions. We had a meal at the local pub (within walking distance) the food was very good and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely be back!!

The site was well set up and very clean.

This review is for Alton, The Star

The site was well set up and very clean. No point having a great site if the staff are unfriendly as we've experienced elsewhere but the staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. Can't fault them at all. Kid's could roam without us worrying about them. Local area is stunning and we will be back for more

Just home from our second stay at the Alton star campsite and it certainly didn't disappoint.

This review is for Alton, The Star

Just home from our second stay at the Alton star campsite and it certainly didn't disappoint. You always get a friendly welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The facilities are very clean well situated within the site. The play park is fantastic for kids and is very close to the camping area, which is great if you have kids. A great base for Alton towers which is literally less than 5 minutes from the site. A special mention must go to the staff who are a credit to the site. Would definitely recommend.

“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!
