Just a quick note to say thank you to you and your family. We had a great time in the trailer tent at weekend (a much easier way of camping - you are definitely on to something there!) Your site is lovely and the views - wow!

e will definitely be back in the future.

This was the email we sent to the owner. I would certainly stay at this site again, it was lovely and like we said the views are amazing.

Just returned after a fab weekend here! It really is a beautiful place.

We were warmly welcomed onto the campsite by sam and her family, the campsite is great, the toilet and shower were spotlessly clean.

You couldn't have asked for more, everything you need in a campsite. The children loved the sprinkler (was put on to cool the kids down) when we join the caravan and camping club we will most definitely be back. :)

Found this site via the campsite search on Uk campsite. What a find! What a bargain! Views to take your breath away.

Having been accused of being a glass half full person I will try and give you a non biased view.

Excellent value for money.

The site is family run. Simon and his family have worked really hard at bringing this site together. The pitches are well placed to take in in the scenery. The pitches are on a little slope but loads of blocks available and lots of help to get level if you need it. There is a road and eventually when the newly planted hedges are fully grown there will be a noise buffer but in fairness the road isn't busy and didn't bother us at all. Entrance to the site is tight from one direction so make sure you follow the directions on the website. If like us you forget don't panic there is a pub car park about 20 yrds down the road (on the left) that you can drive in and out of to get yourself facing the right direction.

Toilet and shower unit is spotless and roomy. Electric shower (free). Indoor washing up area, again spotless. Loads of up to date information leaflets about local attractions. I only gave a 9 for facilities as I know that when more people discover this little peaceful paradise they will need another toilet and shower.

Local Curry takeaway is lush, and delivers to site, portion sizes are huge. We ordered a set meal for 2 with an extra portion of chips and samosas. It served 5 of us and had left overs! excellent value and did I say lush!

We used the site as a base of operation for a wedding locally but were so happy with the site we booked to go back next month before we left.

We have 3 boys ages ranging from 3-14 and they all had fun, from waking up and watching the wildlife, cows, chickens, horses to exploring up to the castle. They even managed to fit in a few hours of lego in the sun!

We spent a week at this site in April and have just returned from our second stay.

We love this site and will be returning again during the summer. The views over the Staffordshire and Cheshire countryside are stunning and the area is great for exploring.

This is a small friendly campsite which is owned by a family who enjoy camping themselves. They are always very helpful and welcoming.

The toilet and shower facility are now completed and there is always plenty of hot water.

Although we live very close to the site, we find it a great place for the whole family to get away to.

If you enjoy countryside camping we would highly recommend giving this site a try!

Fabulous little site. Amazing views. The site feel remote due to it's location, but is easy to access via the M6. Sloped field but plenty of places on the field that are flat enough. Nice short grass. EHU. Basic but clean facilities, always plenty of loo roll and nice clean hand-towel provided. Shower is roomy & hot & FREE. Facilities match the very reasonable tariff. Very friendly and attentive owners who are campers themselves. Trailer tens for hire @ 30 per night, so great for a 'cheeky' weekend or overnighter, but you needed to bring all other camping requirements, just no hassle of pitching a tent.

The only downside for us was the group of campers who talked and laughed very loudly, all in one tent till silly o'clock in the morning & we didn't want to hassle the site owners in the 'dead of night', but fortunately individuals like these are rare creatures. Have already provisionally booked to go back at the end of the month & maybe we will sample the Hens eggs. Only gave a 9/10 due to inconsiderate campers, not site owners. If you recognise your description, shame on you! Tent fabric may have a hydrostatic head to protect against leaking in, but it does not have a magic 'sound buffer' to prevent your inane conversations and drunken laughter from 'leaking out'!

Individual ratings are well worth the 10/10 given!

This new site is on the edge of the small village of Mow Cop, overlooking the town of Biddulph about 3 miles away, which has a Sainsbury's supermarket with a petrol station, shops, cafes etc. And within a 15/20 minute drive of Congleton and Leek. There are many tourist attractions/places to visit in the area.

Access from the M6 motorway is straightforward following the instructions given by the site with only a short section of narrowish road on the final approach, which is nothing to worry about. Approaching the site from other directions involves much narrower roads so you definitely need to follow the directions given if travelling in anything other than a car!

There is a nice wide entrance from the road onto a hardcore roadway which extends part way up the sloping field. The five hard-standings are on the extreme right of this large, open field with grass pitches available on the flattish areas towards the top and bottom. Levelling ramps and blocks will be needed on most pitches. There are 5 electric posts around the site offering 15 hook-ups in total. The water point, chemical disposal and bins are to the left of the site, and there is a path (with solar lighting for night-time) leading to the out-building containing the shower, toilet and washing-up sink. These appeared to be clean, spacious and well-provided with toilet paper etc. Although we chose to use our own facilities.

The first thing that strikes you on arrival at this site are the amazing views across the valley, although the downside of this is that it can get quite windy! However, things should improve in this regard once the newly-planted hedging matures. This is a very quiet site and although there was occasional traffic noise from the road alongside and some planes passing overhead, it did not bother us at all. There are lots of marked walks from just by the site entrance (ideal for a short or longer walk with the dog) and this is an excellent area for walkers, (serious) cyclists and horse-riders.

This site is made extra-special by the owners, Simon and family, who are really friendly and welcoming without being intrusive and work hard to ensure their visitors enjoy their stay. We look forward to returning.
