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

Nearby (walkable) is Tittesworth reservoir with walks, playground etc.

This review is for Leek

Nearby (walkable) is Tittesworth reservoir with walks, playground etc. Rudyard water, also worth a visit with walks and steam train, about 3mls away. The' Roaches' (hill walking) are only about a mile or so away. Dovedale is about 12mls away.

Good pint at three horseshoes,10 min walk away. Tittesworth and Buxton close by.

This review is for Leek

Good pint at three horseshoes,10 min walk away. Tittesworth and Buxton close by. Visited Flint Mill & Churnet Valley Railway during stay, both very interesting. Dog walk area very small,could do with more of a walk than a pen? Good information point at reception. Would be nice to have some bird feeders or maybe herb planters for members to use as seen on other sites? Only one toilet block open during stay which led to delays having showers in the morning. Had takeaway delivered to site from Leek which was good value. Really enjoyed stay overall as like the peace and quiet(except for the mower!) and will be back again.

This review is for Leek

Received a very warm and attentive welcome despite arriving after the reception had closed, without a booking, following a long day's pack hike. Good hot showers and nice warm, clean facilities block were a great aid to recuperation. Only a couple of miles stroll from the centre of Leek, with a pavement all the way on the A53 (unlit most of the way offering a wonderful panorama on a clear night). Better still, just a stone's throw from an apparent labyrinth of wonderfully well marked paths and trails through Staffordshire's picturesque Moors and valleys, which warrant far greater exploration than the couple of days that I spent. Having enjoyed a second day's walking around the Manifold and Hamps valleys ended up in a lovely pub in Onecote (Jervis Arms) and was offered a lift to Leek by a couple I got chatting to over a pristine pint of Whim. Regrettably, I left my map and compass in the back of their car and so set off the next morning toward Buxton by the A53 rather than a more verdant route. Was rather taken aback, to say the least, when, about 6 miles in, I was intercepted by site staff bearing the very same map and compass which the kind gentleman had driven to the site! A service well above and beyond the call of duty which added a magical touch to a wonderful few days away.

This review is for Leek

Very friendly & helpful, we had problems with our electrics before we left home & fortunately managed to get everything sorted out. The wardens were most helpful when I phoned explaining we might be later than anticipated, this wasn't a problem to them & said we were ok up to 11:00 pm. They assisted with siting us on the pitch & were most understanding of our situation. We were made to feel very welcome & will definitely be returning to this site.
