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 or fauna. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

Very nice site, lovely welcome from wardens (I think they were relief wardens), and despite the wet weather no problems as we were on hardstanding. Good access to Leek and Buxton (can't comment on anywhere else as we were only there for a couple of days). Close to main road making it easy to access, but not a great deal of traffic noise and certainly not enough to put us off using this site again. And a definite bonus at this time of year - the toilets were heated!

Nice, comfortable and sheltered site with small dog area. Facilities were good (2 blocks, 1 which included washing up area), clean and warm. Some noise from busy road from our pitch. Site wardens during our visit (including temporary wardens) were very friendly and helpful. Thanks!

This review is for Leek

Despite the fact my wife immediately apologised for being 5 minutes early, (she was only the passenger and it's not always easy to judge how long it takes to get from one site to another) she got a lecture on the error of her ways from one of the male members of staff. After that the staff were friendly and helpful. The site and facilities are excellent, and is well located for exploring Leek, Stoke and the western part of the Peak District.
