We stayed here as they accept 2 nights stay over bank holiday weekends, which is good. But I would not pay over 30. 00 per night to stay again. Site staff are very helpful and friendly and the areas were clean and tidy. Toilets and showers - a little updating is required as there is simply not enough of them for the size of the site.
We were placed in the lower left field as you drive in, which is very close to the main road and was painful as the large swarms of road hogs thundered past - plus the random honking horns from others. Please request one of the fields in front of the hall if you can!
Not a complete disaster but a 10. 00 charge for a campervan awning and electric per night is wrong for the experience - they should be wearing a mask.
Middle aged couple stayed for one night at a weekend in a tent. Ok site, tent field is on a slope, but try to be at the top as the bottom gets boggy. Facilities are ok and fairly clean. The on site bar didn't open till 8 for meals.
Cheadle though is only a 15 minute walk and had plenty of pubs and places to eat. Reception staff could improve on friendliness upon arrival. Location is handy. Peaceful at night. Found the price to be expensive for what the site was.
Stayed at Hales Hall over the Jubilee bank holiday.
Very easy to find site, nobody on reception when we arrived - the chap was busy cleaning - so we picked a pitch and checked in later. On a slope but nothing we couldn't live with - you take nature as you find her!
£20 for the night perhaps not the cheapest, but a good site, plenty of room - it was quite busy, but lots of space between tents! Many had set up little villages, celebrating the Jubilee no doubt. Yes there was noise in the evening, but it's expected and certainly wasn't a nuisance.
Toilet block was nice and clean - hooks and a seat in the showers, which were nice and hot when I went at 7am. Good area for washing up too.
Enjoyed our stay, very relaxing. Ideal as a base for Alton Towers, or just to get away for a while.
Camp-site was easy to find using sat-nav, Elec hookup but I decided not to use them.
The camp-site was fantastic, 5*. The toilets/showers were very clean and although we had a 'bit' of rain the cleaners were always in to make sure all mud etc was cleaned up.
There is a great wee burger van, great for breakfast rolls, £2. 50 a roll was good value :) Lots of families camping, There was an 'open' patch left for them to play cricket / football / Frisbee, Didn't go into play park but what I saw it looked decent enough and the kids that were using it seemed to enjoy it.
The site is about one mile from nearest town, so ideal for picking up anything left behind or take-away.
There is a small pub on sight but I have to say when I walked it it was like 'your not local' not a warm welcome at all!
Due to the weather I missed one night as it rained for 24hrs solid ha ha
All staff were really friendly and answered any questions I had.
I will be using this site in the future, fantastic. But I have to say though. Although I had emailed and booked, they had no record of me booking, lucky they had plenty of room, would probably email and phone to confirm next time but certainly wont put me off using this site again
Would recommend if going to Alton Towers as real close
June 2012, family of 4 (2 kids are 9 & 10). Very friendly staff, who were very helpful. We were quoted £33 per night but on arrival this had risen to £38 per night. After a bit of discussion they honoured the original price. We were put in the lower field until we asked for a hard standing pitch (due to the amount of recent rain)and were shown to a different area. This was thankfully far away from many large groups of tents, all of which seemed full of teenagers. This said the new area was very quiet, and even though we heard the large groups whooping and howling, the noise curfew was enforced and all went quiet. Most pitches seemed to be sloping. The site was clean and all the bins etc were emptied regularly. The biggest downside was the showers, well the entire shower block, they were clean(ish) but extremely dated. There were enough, but as the doors were often wedged open, the whole block was freezing. The showers lasted about 5 - 7 seconds per press. This wasn't too bad when the water was hot, but in the ladies it was luke warm and the shower tray didn't empty, resulting in a very unpleasant experience. The site is convenient for stoke and alton towers. They need to spend some money on the shower block to justify the cost of the stay, which is quite expensive.
Site easy to find, checked in quickly lovely young lady on reception who also did none stop cleaning of the toilets and showers. Check in was easy she walked us to our pitch explained where everything was. Ground was on a slope which not ideal with a tent but was ok for the two nights we were staying. Toilet block excellent really clean and as said before young lady was always in there cleaning it. Small park for kids with football pitch, small lake also with Geese little one loved feeding them in the morning. We had a really noisy family in a caravan next too us the second night swearing and music till bout 12am. Hales Hall was not open when we went due to it being mid week so cannot comment on the bar or food from there. Used the breakfast van lovely friendly man and food was lovely and cheap.
Cheadle not too far away Adsa, Morrisons and B&M all in town plenty of take aways. Lovely walk round Hales Hall Wildlife lake turning before campsite plenty more ducks to feed, also lovely walk across from the JCB factory, wildlife walk plenty of signs for bats, water voles etc, great with dog. Also opposite campsite Les Oaks buildings made out of reclaimed timber, brick etc.
Facilities were generally good, showers needs some hooks or shelf in for your toiletries. Apart from that all good, would I use again yes.
