Enjoy the thrills of Alton Towers and beautiful Peak District from this Club Site.

The Peak District National Park is right on the doorstep of our Alton, The Star Club campsite. This attractive, well maintained family-friendly site is perfectly placed for Alton Towers theme park – just a mile from site. Similarly those who enjoy heading off into the great outdoors will not be disappointed with some great walking country right on the doorstep.

A bus stop right outside the site will deliver you to Alton Towers and its host of family attractions, ranging from adrenaline-fuelled roller coasters through to gentler rides for little ones, in minutes.

Carsington Water and Visitor Centre, north east of the campsite, offers a wide range of activities for all the family on and off the water including miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore, a children’s play area, fishing and many water sports.

While Stoke-on-Trent may not be an obvious tourist destination you can see the Anglo-Saxon treasures of The Staffordshire Hoard at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery here. There’s also the Wedgewood Visitor Centre full of artefacts, some dating back to Josiah Wedgewood – the man who started the pottery industry as we know it today.

Self-catering accommodation is available at this campsite.

Worth Noting

Some grass pitches are sloping, levellers are required. Caravan Holiday Homes are available for purchase and hire.

Eat Local

The Ramblers Retreat country restaurant and coffee house in Alton sells homemade meals. Ye Olde Star Inn, a 500 yard amble from the site is a 19th Century Traditional Inn with a great atmosphere, food served daily.

We can not praise this site enough, staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you,...

This review is for Alton, The Star

We can not praise this site enough, staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you, everyone had a smile on their face. The site was lovely a clean, family room was lovely, wish more sites had these as its easier than trying to shower in a small cubicle with little children. We just wish the shop was open for longer, unfortunately for us, we had left for Alton Towers before 9am and didn't return until after 6pm.Although staff are available from 7am-11pm the shop is only open for selected hours during the day. All in all though, we would give this site 10/10 and will def be returning and recommending to friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful weekend camping.

I grew up in Derbyshire and know the area well.

This review is for Alton, The Star

I grew up in Derbyshire and know the area well. Alton Towers is a must but beware: it can be very busy and expensive. Make sure you take plenty to eat and drink. Ashbourne is a great little town - the Gingerbread Shop is also a must! The Star is a great place. The children had a great time whizzing around on their bikes and really enjoyed the play area. I had no concerns at all about their safety. The CCC Team were exceptional. It isn't often that you meet genuinely warm and friendly people who are willing to help. I'm just sorry that I couldn't stay longer to really enjoy the whole caravanning experience.

This review is for Alton, The Star

This site is tucked away in the Satffordshire countryside, with Cheadle being the nearest town with the shops and restaurants you could need. An ideal site for those visiting Alton Towers, only being a mile away. The site staff were friendly and facilities were clean. The site is a little hilly, with not much chance of finding a flat pitch. But the surroundings and everything else made up for this. A nice quiet site, even with lots of families staying.

“A group of friends and myself stayed at this site for 3 nights in June 2012. The site were brilliant and accommodating with our requests. The wardens were really friendly and chatty. The self catering caravan we stayed in was immaculate and even blankets were in the wardrobes which was good as the evenings were a little chilly. No complaints about the 'van and within 5 mins drive of Alton Towers (our main reason for the choice of site) As with any other club site, I would not hesitate in recommending this site or returning, I'm already planning a return trip next year!”
