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.

The pretty campsite offers camping all year round. 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 manager was extremely helpful, and made us feel like one of the family from the moment we arrived. The pitches are very well spaced and you dont feel cramped in as you do on some club sites. The staff were very knowledgeable about the area and patient to explain everything. Ideal base for exploring the Peak District. Will definitely be back.

This review is for Leek

As a Newbie I didn't know quite what to expect from my first camping trip in over 35 years. The welcome was (quite) friendly by the site managers and I was shown to my pitch by one of the male managers who explained the various rules and regs. There seemed quite a lot to take in although that was the last I actually saw of anyone in authority. Whilst it's good to know I couldn't have disobeyed any rules it would have been nice to have received a little reassurance that I wasn't doing anything wrong. It has to be said that the facilities were spotless and the showers were hot. There were plenty of very well behaved children and dogs on site and they certainly weren't a problem. Sadly, though, I didn't have a particularly good night's sleep; traffic from the nearby road was endless and at closing time the very noisy nearby pub-goers took a good couple of hours to actually go home. When I did eventually get to sleep it was more or less time to get up! Mention of the road noise and said pub might have been good in the Club site description. With these in mind perhaps the camping area would have been better placed elsewhere on the site. As a Newbie I couldn't understand why the toilet block was closed from 10.00am for a couple of hours for cleaning and when I went to the office to find a manager to ask a few questions there was no one around to speak to. This was probably not the best of experiences but I did learn a lot. Next time I choose a site I will pay better attention to the map to see how busy the surrounding roads are and where the nearest pub is. I will also remember the anti-histamine as the midges were awful. All in all it was OK but I don't think I'll be rushing back any time soon.
