Overview

  • Campsite is located within a National Park

    Site within National Park

A great base to explore the Peak District and the Potteries.

Our Leek Club campsite located in the Staffordshire Moorlands and with the southern Peak District within a stone’s throw will appeal to those campers who enjoy nothing more than a good walk to take in the local area.

Bordered by trees and some sheltered pitches, the site has a good range of facilities including two facility blocks, a small children’s play area and dog walk.

A little north of the campsite the Roaches, a craggy outcrop of rocks, provides a playground for climbers while its miles of paths satisfy seasoned ramblers. The villages of Upper Hulme and Meerbrook populate the area. The latter has a reservoir, Tittesworth, which is within walking distance of Leek campsite. There are pleasant walks around the shores and at the north end bird hides. There is also a Visitors Centre, adventure playground and picnic area.

Another great way to enjoy the local scenery is to take a ride on a train. South of the campsite the Churnet Valley Railway wends its way through beautiful countryside known as Staffordshire’s “Little Switzerland”. Hop on board a steam train at The Foxfield Steam Railway, Stoke-on-Trent, and enjoy a five-and-a-half mile journey through north Staffordshire countryside.

Leek campsite is also well placed to explore the Potteries. Stoke-on-Trent south of the site has several museums and galleries dedicated to the ceramic industry which gave the Potteries its name.

Other days out from the campsite include Alton Towers theme park, Chatsworth House, Blackbrook Zoological Parkand the National Trust’s Ilam Park near Ashbourne.

Worth Noting

50 all-weather pitches available, however we require awnings to be pitched on hardstandings, therefore steel pegs may be required. Some pitches are sloping and chocks are required. No area for ball games.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

The Wednesday market I Leek sells local produce and there are monthly farmers' markets in Bakewell, Matlock, Buxton, Castleton and Whaley Bridge.

Always enjoy this site. Wardens always very helpful and accomadating. Toilets clean Hardstandings need updating by the club Fantastic walks on the 'Roaches' Leek is a great town with everything anyone will ever need. For a family Alton Towers is only 15 miles away. Never go to Bakewell, always packed with people and traffic, unless you like that type of town!

We were made to feel very unwelcome upon arrival due to booking a grass pitch for our caravan. Heavy rain had made the ground very soft. I would ask if this is such an issue staff contact members in advance rather than making them feel like a nuisance!

This review is for Leek

On holiday many people enjoy sitting out, by there pitch, relaxing, sunbathing, reading and socializing with friends and family,and getting a good night's sleep. All of these are pretty much impossible to do and enjoy because of the constant noise from the traffic. Why would anyone choose to stay on this site if you were aware of this problem. When telling the warden that we were not happy with the pitch we had been initially given, which was the pitch closest to the road, and having spent the night unable to sleep because of the horrendous traffic noise, we chose to up camp and relocate on a pitch further away from the road but still on the same site. This was obviously very inconvenient for us to do as it took 3 or 4 hours of our precious holiday to do. We had set up camp the day before on our arrival. The last thing you want to do on the first day of your holiday, after the day of arriving, is to waste precious time of your holiday relocating but feel we had no choice as it was impossible to stay on the pitch we had been allocated on arrival. Upon moving the noise from the traffic was slightly better but still to loud. Needless to say we didn't enjoy our stay at this noisy site. I find it difficult to believe that anyone with normal hearing would choose to stay hearing if they were aware of the glaring problem of were the site is located. Very disappointed and will not be renewing my membership.

Spent an amazing week at Leek.

This review is for Leek

Spent an amazing week at Leek. This site is close to local amenities and walking distance from the local pub, but still has the feel of being in the country. It is close to a local reservoir which provides a great day out for all the family with various walks with differing degrees of difficulty. Close to the potteries Leek is a gateway to British history as well as a great place to explore the countryside
