 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.

 I specifically chose this campsite for the wonderful location. Set on top of the ridge, with stunning views in all directions, this is a country lovers paradise. The owners were friendly and helpful. The facilities include a new toilet and shower room with a sink for washing up. Lots of hot water. The field is small so it is probably a good idea to book ahead. We just had a small tent and did not need electric hook up. I would highly recommend this site, both for the location, which is within walking distance of a pub and village shop, and for the beauty of the whole area which is full of good walks/ cycling and for the welcome from the owners. There are two National Trust properties nearby: Biddulph Grange Gardens and Little Moreton Hall. Biddulph town is a short drive away and there is a big Sainsbury's there. For those with small children be aware the site is on the road, which, although a minor road, does see a lot of traffic.

 We were very impressed with this new site set high above the surrounding countryside. We found it easily; As we arrived in the dark the easy access and Simon, the owners warm welcome and assistance was very much appreciated. A lot of work is being put into getting the site ready. Hard standings are being completed and the Mains electric points all around the site have yet to be commissioned. Simon had sorted out a mains hook up for us. He had left some wooden blocks should we have needed them, as the site is on the side of a hill.

The toilets were still being worked on but clean and well lit.

We enjoyed our long weekend. In a few weeks as the finishing touches are completed this will be an excellent site and we will come again.

 Nice little find. Arrived in January and site not quite finished. Owners have worked hard with the camper in mind to establish a site in stoke on trent where campsites are limited. Come summer this will be one gem of a place to visit.

The greeting and assistance from the owner was faultless and the views over the city and the Cheshire plains are amazing.

Site is sloping but owner provided blocks and its location is excellent just a short walk from really nice pubs and short drive from mow cop folly. Staffordshire's lovely heritage is here for one to explore.

Excellent for hiking and a nice little getaway for a quiet peaceful weekend. Surrounding fields have horses and the chickens and ducks laid excellent eggs which we had the pleasure of tasting.

Thank you simon for your hospitality and the bottle of champagne given as we were their first customers. We will be back again and again.

At 12. 50 p. Night with ehu this is reasonably priced.

Note no toilet block for now but this is due to council and not the owners. They are working on a solution. Please do not be put off.

 Just returned from a weekend of camping with my eldest son. Great little site, excellent views, good location, friendly owners and excellent value for money! There is a pub just down the road and some excellent walks in the area.

Overall, a highly recommended site which I would return to if in the area again.
