Date of Visit: June 2007 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Tomheeran 8 reviews from this member

 Just returned from our first ever outing in a caravan. The site was immaculate, the shower/toilet blocks were exceptional. The pitches were very large and well set out, so you didn't feel you were on top of each other. The wardens on site were fantastic and said on arrival you could choose whichever pitch you wanted and pitch whichever way suited, just let them know after you have set up. The weather was awful (continous rain) but this didn't stop the children (3 & 6) enjoying their first caravanning holiday, would definatley come here again as it is a good central base for the peaks. Fish & Chip van parks up at reception at 5pm on a Saturday & is very popular. There is one large hill on the way out of Leek, but it shouldn't pose to much trouble if you have your Caravan/car ratio's okay. 


Date of Visit: June 2007 Unit:  Campervan
Reviewer: Cleveley 8 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for 2 nights in our campervan. It was a lovely clean site with spacious pitches, friendly wardens, and a great dog walk.

Worth noting though, if you intend to take an awning you will need rock pegs as it is all hard-standing (can be bought on site but probably cheaper to buy in advance), and wheel levelling chocks are essential for campervans as many of the pitches are on a slight hill unless you are on the pitches close to the road.

Pitches are not allocated in advance so you are best to arrive early to choose a good pitch away from the road. When we went in June they must have been spreading on the nearby fields as there was a strong rural aroma all weekend!

We would visit this site again as it was very well maintained, and easy to access for a weekend away. I would be reluctant to stay longer as there is not much to do within walking distance which can be a bit of a pain, having to pack up the van daily.

There are 2 pubs within walking distance, The 3 horseshoes looked lovely but also quite expensive so we tried the other pub (can't remember the name!). Food was reasonable for the price but we would not go back, and regret not paying the extra to try the 3 horsehoes. 


Date of Visit: March 2007 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Viggo 15 reviews from this member

 Set on a hillside, with spacious hardstanding pitches on level tiers rising above the main facilities block, this can't be described as an especially pretty site.
 
Views over the southern Peak District hills are restricted by trees, and because the site itself is made up only of gravel pitches, separated by hedges and shrubs, it does look unformly grey and a little bleak, especially before the leaves are on the trees. Even so, clumps of spring flowers brighten the area, and there's lots of birdlife on the many feeders put out by the site staff.
 
Of course, the facilities are up to the usual excellent Caravan Club standard - clean, spacious toilet blocks with free showers, veg prep/dish washing areas - and the wardens are a friendly, helpful bunch.
 
However, the site is rather noisy thanks to the neighbouring busy road - regualarly used by trucks and wailing motorbikes - and there's quite a bit of high jet noise as its under the flightpath into Manchester airport.
 
This is a good base for touring the area rather than relaxing at the van. Fish and chips van visits on Saturday nights, and was very popular during our visit.
 
Accessing the site from the west means coming through the middle of Leek, which can be fraught. Also, there's a very steep hill on the main road about a mile before the site entrance, which could catch out some tow-ers. 


Date of Visit: December 2006 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Vbennett214 18 reviews from this member

 Our first trip in a Motorhome and we found the site ideal.
First class facilities, spacious pitches, good, clean showers and dog friendly.
Very helpful wardens, the TV reception does not receive a digital signal so if you have a built in digi box like us you can not use your TV.
This was not a big problem, only took the tv as it was December and the evenings draw in early.
Excellent walking around nearby Tittesworth Reservoir, a must if you want a great walk with the dog.
Would certainly visit again.

We had a great week at this site which we visited as it was so close to Alton Towers (about 30 mins drive - easily found.)

The site was spacious and well laid out on terraces with all hard standing. The facilities were spotless and there were plenty of them. There is a small dog walk through woods around the edge of the site and a good adventure playground for older children (at the end of the dog walk and a bit secluded so you would probably want to accompany younger children.) There was also a good play area for younger children just outside the smaller toilet block and within view of your caravan if you were on that level.

Round and about there was plenty to see and do. The site is situated on the Peak District National Park and the views and walking are spectacular within walking distance of the site. There is also a pub serving food just outside the site and plenty of interesting towns round about (Leek, Buxton etc.) If you go with children the Waterworld in Stoke is easy to find and well worth a visit (about 30 mins drive). The shops are good there too and, of course there are many ceramic factories to visit in and around Stoke (again we found them easily.)

All in all well worth a visit.

We had a lovely 2 week stay here.
We really enjoyed the site as it was then, and was surprised to hear they were closing for the winter to be refurbished as it was already a nice clean well maintained site.
It's location right on the edge of the Peak District is great for visiting this area of outstanding natural beauty, and the view of the Roaches from the site is wonderful.
We found we needed to use the car for getting around, but that was no problem as all the roads are well signposted and there was always adequate parking when we arrived at our destinations.
If we go back to this area of the country, we'll probably stay here again.

Really clean facilities, and nice spacious pitches, all hard standing. We only stopped over here for a night, but beware most pitches away from main road tend to be filled up if you arrive late, so you may end up with a spot of traffic noise.
