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.

This was our first time at the Star site and won't be our last.

This review is for Alton, The Star

This was our first time at the Star site and won't be our last. On arrival the staff were friendly, helpful and showed you to a pitch and helped manoeuvring if needed. The site was busy with a pleasant lively atmosphere as the weather was great. The site was very well maintained and the facilities were very clean with a good size well-equipped play area. Without doubt the wardens make the site and we look forward to returning soon.

We weren't sure about it because of Alton Towers nearby, but had a pleasant surprise.

“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!”
