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

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.

This review is for Alton, The Star

My family and I had the pleasure of making Alton, The Star C&CC site the first official holiday destination in our first caravan, having been tenting for a few years and staying at a club site last year we knew roughly what to expect but The Star rose we'll above our expectations. The facilities are fantastic very clean and well presented, the staff are friendly and more than happy to help even when my wife tries to destroy a washing machine and my eldest loved the massive play area. We opted for a full service pitch which is completely hard standing, my only criticism which is more of a note to self make sure you have something to put under your groundsheet/awning carpet as the chippings are sharp and you will definitely need rock pegs, other than that the hardstandings are reasonably level but the grass pitches you will need blocks. Please take note of the warning about getting to the site, avoid driving through Cheadle as you will have to climb a 16% hill, the A52 from Stoke is better but still a little steep in places (AVOID COTTON LANE REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOUR SAT NAV TELLS YOU use Ellastone Road instead) my advice would be take the A515 from the A50 to Ashbourne, pick up the A52 towards Stoke and turn left onto the B5417 it's a much easier road. One minor thing to add the shop is not very well stocked and the nearest supermarket is in Cheadle a 15 minute drive away. All in all a beautiful site with fantastic facilities a stones throw from many of Staffordshire's and Derbyshire's best known attractions.

Been coming to this site for countless years now.

This review is for Alton, The Star

Been coming to this site for countless years now.The showers are still not adequate, small and water goes everywhere. They are kept relatively clean though considering the amount of people that use them.The reception ladies could do with putting a smile on now and again.One of the wardens is officious this year,even shouting sometimes.He even shouts at 7.30 in the morning when my dog was not on a lead.My mistake,but their are better ways to deal with a situation. Please and thank you is not a term he has ever heard of,when telling my children to stop playing football.He also drives the tractor far too fast when children are about.Overall we had a great stay.Alton Towers is always great and well worth a visit.The views on a night time are absolutely fantastic. The local pub is quite expensive but great food.

After staying 5 times last year my first returning visit for 2018 was just as good.

This review is for Alton, The Star

After staying 5 times last year my first returning visit for 2018 was just as good. The staff always give you a warm welcome and are very polite and will help in any way to make your stay more enjoyable. Its a nice large site and the facilities available are really good may you be in a tent, caravan, motor home etc. I did get stuck in the mud with my van but it was no issue for the staff to jump in and help as they always will go that extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend this site 100 percent. I must say that i have stayed at other club sites down south and was not as impressed. 10 stars for me.

“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!
