Nice site in lovely surroundings, close to excellent walking and cycle routes. Good walk from the site to the local reservoir; about 1. 5 miles each way. Plus walks around the reservoir itself. Lovely toilets and showers. Pleasantly laid out site. Staff friendly and showed us to our site, giving us a choice of location. However, I thought it was a bit over zealous to remind us to put our small dog on a lead just as we were moving her from inside our campervan to outside in order to feed her. She was well under control, never leaves our side and we were just about to tether her outside so she could have her dinner.

Up to the usual Camping and Caravanning Club standard. Friendly, helpful staff, clean, warm facilities, well-kept grass and pathways.

There's some road noise but not excessive.

Leek is a pleasant town well worth a visit, and the Roaches are very close.

If you're arriving from Leek by bike like me, go via Meerbrook rather than the main road, it's a lot less hilly. From Leek there's a railway cycle route to Rudyard Reservoir - lovely. There's also cycling along the Caldon Canal towards Stoke.

My Husband spent 9 days at this site and I joined him for the last 4. We would have preferred to be on the open side but because they thought bad weather coming we would be more protected in the trees. Not good for the satellite. Showers were very good and clean main staff were friendly but we still got in trouble. Site was practically empty but Duke went to say hello to a passer by (stand in warden) that dog should be on a lead. And the day before leaving I needed to pack my car and was questioned where are you taking that. Too load up of course and return to outside car park. Rules are rules but some flexibility guys. Great stop for getting out and about. Dog walk very small. Nice setting will go again as they do all year round.

We spent a very enjoyable few days here. The site is sloping, with lots of trees: lovely, until it rains, when we had a river in our awning! The facilities were beautiful and clean but could do with being updated. The site is a little way out of Leek so there are no shops within walking distance. The Three Horseshoes (10 mins walk)does a good pint, the food looked nice but was out of our price range. The playpark is swings and a slide, but there was nowhere to play ball at all. Be careful when you leave - we clipped our caravan on the gatepost as the turn out of the site on to the access road is very tight; from what the warden said this is a common problem and telling people about it rather than doing something about it is unhelpful. We will return when this is improved.

Our first weekend away with the tent, met up with my mum and dad with their camper van. Site very clean and tidy, staff friendly, (showed us to our pitch in the pouring rain), camping field quite flat, but did get a bit squelchy under foot, but it did rain a lot. Toilets and showers were clean. Shop sells the basics, bread butter gas etc, point to note the bread is frozen so don't expect to buy it and go and make your picnic. Saturday stayed dry, went to chestnut owl and otter sanctuary at chapel-en-le-frith, (about 15 miles away), good day out for the kids, and called at titesworth reservoir on the way back where there is a huge play area. Did not use play area on site so can't comment on that. Eating out, the chippy in the market square in leek is very nice and reasonably priced, and also had an excellent meal at the moss rose pub, about 2-3 miles from site towards leek, there is also a fish and chip van that comes on to site on a Saturday evening. All in all a very nice site, which I would recommend and would like to return to.

We booked this campsite by accident, thinking we had booked the caravan club site up the road which we have stayed at before but actually couldn't have been happier with the result of this mix up.

On arrival the staff were incredibly friendly, walked us to our pitch which was one of the larger ones as we have a twin axle. We had loads of grass on either side which was perfect for sunbathing, BBQ'ing and for our 3 year old to play. The shop is small but has all the essentials, toilet roll, soap, water etc however they don't take cards for the shop purchases, cash only but when I went to buy icecreams they very kindly set up a tab for me and let me pay the following day. We had also forgotten our dog rope for the stake so the owners found some rope and attached clips to it for us. They honestly couldn't be more helpful.

The park is just a swing set and slide but has loads of grass so perfect for kicking a football around. The dog walk is really small but there is a big farmers field next door which you have access to which made up for it.

We didn't use the facilities but did take a peek and they were spotless.

Indoor pot washing area and laundry.

Really peaceful site, kid friendly, great things nearby to see, tittesworth reservoir up the road has a huge kids park and ducks and geese to feed. The pub up past the site on the left does a great carvery.

Overall it's a little gem of a site that we will definitely be going back to.
