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

Our second visit to this site and we will return again.

This review is for Leek

Our second visit to this site and we will return again. Although sited just off a busy road, there is very little, if any noise and the whole site is very peaceful. This time we were pitched on the more open area and we preferred this as you could take advantage of the sun. There also seems to be more space than those pitches on the more shaded side underneath the trees. Facilities were spotless. This is a great site for walking The Roaches, visiting Lud's Church, birdwatching at Coombes Valley or Rudyard Lake or Tittesworth Reservoir. There are also some pretty challenging cycle rides on roads that see little traffic. It is on the doorstep of some of the most stunning countryside in England. Leek is a couple of miles down the road and has everything you need shopping wise. The welcome and all contact with staff was perfunctory and nothing more

The shower block by reception was heated .

This review is for Leek

The shower block by reception was heated . The one we used was away from there, no heat but still very good. We visited many national trust property's. As for grocery shopping waitrose was only 10 mins away. Leek is a lovely little market town. When you venture just a little up the road the moors are spectacular with purple heather and amazing views. Thankyou for putting a campsite in such a nice place!!

I feel I must write to congratulate both the wardens and the assistant wardens on such a clean site. This is not the first visit to the site, we return more than once a year. These are truly professional managers.

This review is for Leek

Just returned from 3 night break at this cracking site!! Staff were superb from the minute we arrived. Great banter with them and they were very willing and able to answer any questions re the site or local places of interest. Two separate toilet blocks on either side of the site. Was given the choice on arrival of sunny side or sheltered..... Will go with the sun every time and was guided into position perfectly by staff member. The showers blocks are extremely clean and tidy and water lovely and warm for washing and showering. Very small dog walking area but there is a number of fields immediately adjacent to the main gate so that I could throw a ball for my dog. Pub is only half mile or so walk which was brilliant! With Tittesworth reservoir just around the corner with some great walks!! I loved this site. It is only in extreme circumstances that I would return to the same site as there are so many to try, but already in the process of booking again in August. So if you are thinking of stopping here at end of August the site is horrendous....any other time it's a cracker!!!! Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so good!!!
