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.
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.

We travelled as a group two tents and a caravan and were disappointed that when we arrived half of the site was not in use as waterlogged. My caravan although close to the tents was in what can only be described as a car park with hook up. When I went back to reception to see if there was anything else the member of staff that dealt with me was very rude..This does not apply to all staff as some were very helpful. I have also never been to a campsite where I have been told to the cm where i can put my car etc and were all told exactly where we could pitch. I was very disappointed that if we sat outside after 8pm we felt we had to keep the noise down as most of the campers on this site were in bed by then, This site is in a good location though and well looked after. ~The care of the site though seemed more important than the customers. If we had known that the site was mainly for older people we would not have booked and will not be returning,

Welcomed onto site by friendly wardens....there are two facility blocks which were spotlessly clean the only slight negative was the road noise from A53 but if we had been situated at the bottom end of site this maybe would have not bothered us however on saying that it did not stop us having a lovely week at a lovely site.
A must if you enjoy a ' chippy tea' you've got to try 'Monty's situated in the Market Place, Leek.
Enjoy your stay....x

Unfortunately our stay was marred by the infestation of flies.
Site staff seemed unwilling to rectify this by installing fly papers or giving them out free to people staying on the site.
We realise that the problem was not caused by the site but it would have been nice if someone could have mentioned it before we did.
The site would also benefit from a refurbishment. It is looking very tired now and apparently the drainage problems on the campsite (tents area) needs looking into badly.
A friend of ours wanted to stay but was only allowed onto an area not really suitable very close to the bins (fly problem).
Road noise can also be a problem, especially early in the morning. Also dogs- yapping at night and morning.
On a plus side the campsite is very well placed for the Town of Leek which has some wonderful architecture and amenities. The reservoir is very close and easy to walk to. Whole area is beautiful and worth visiting. We would go back once the fly problem is over.
