We've used this site for the last 3 years for the Acoustic Festival weekend (highly recommended for a clean, safe, family event, ) Last year, we were there early when the races were on and it was an experience to see and hear the horses galloping past!

The site itself is very well kept, quiet (apart from festival/races - even then, there isn't a lot of disturbance on the actual site) and the wardens are friendly. You can walk into the town which has several supermarkets and the usual town centre shops. Also nearby is a trading estate with a Tesco superstore, Aldi, lots of restaurants and a new ice rink this year.

There is a good road network to get out and about and Trentham Gardens is highly recommended if you like the outdoors, also with a lovely big garden centre. Also, do try The White Hart hotel - wonderful food, decor and not too expensive.

Only slight drawback to the site is that the shower block is very dated, but it is always clean, tidy and warm!

I picked this site due to it's nearby location to Alton Towers. I've stayed in a few sites in this area but they are often rural, this was ideal as it was easy to walk into town from.

The wardens were friendly and helpful, advised us of the easier way to get into town. The site was about a third full when we visited so was quiet enough. I parked backing onto the race course which would give excellent views when a race is on.

The toilets and showers were functional and clean they are a bit dated, but good enough for price.

I would revisit this site when a race meet is on, just to soak up the atmosphere.

Nice site within walking distance of town. There is a good dog walking area. Shower cubicles are really small and need updating, good dish washing and food preparation area with washing machine facilities but drier takes too much money to get clothes dry. Motorhome on board waste water emptying drain needs a lightweight cover, although there are hooks available it was too heavy for us to lift up and we had to get a strong young man to lift it for us as warden wasn't around. We would use this site again.

We were there 22nd-26th may mainly for the racing. The wardens were nice and friendly on our arrival. Apart from the racing we may not have used a site like this, but that said it was ok. There was a fair was there on the day of racing and if you had kids there would be plenty of entertainment for them. Facilities are good and would go again for racing or a stop over on our travels.

We booked this site for it's location. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. The site is located within the actual racecourse and on one of the days we stayed a race meeting took place which our children found great. They also hold various venues there from antique fairs to whatever is on, better to check before booking what is on. The location it's self is in a great area and easy to find. From there we ventured places like monkey world, where else would you walk amomst monkeys, our youngest to oldest loved it. The sites toilets and showers were basic but the sites fees were cheap. Would I stay there again then the answer is yes.

Reviewer: Bill the Bus 16 reviews from this member

Stayed here for 2 weeks. Lovely site, well positioned to the town and train station. Level site with all grass pitches, easy to put caravan on pitch. Toilets adequate but dated. We were lucky to get a pitch on the rails and watched the first meeting from the back of our van and the 2nd on course. , you get a 5 discount on centre course and a 10 from on course tickets. Both static and cover wardens were very friendly and helpful. Quite a good play area for the kids and a cricket field to the side so plenty too do.

2 negative were first, being on the rails when the course is watered it can come over on to the pitches. Clerk of the course came down to chat after I mentioned it to the course and said that people will be made aware of the possibility of getting wet as it is river water that is used. The 2nd and more disconcerting was the Bus Stopover Tour festival on the 1st weekend and the food show event on the 2nd weekend. The first weekend was extremely busy, over a 1000 units at a guess, using the same entrance road ad the club site. It also brought lots of noise, we were kept awake until after 1 AM both nights with the music. Considering there was a tribute band on after racing on the 1st Thursday that we could not hear it must have been loud. Accept that the course has to bring in revenue but consideration should be given to others who are also paying and an 11 o'clock quieten down, 12 o'clock cut off would have been much appreciated. So if you like a quieter life check what is on. Will definitely go back but would check more carefully events next time.
