Superb views in every direction! It really is an impressive place. The Gritstone Trail is adjacent and only a short walk to the Old Man of Mow and the Castle. Level pitches with electric. The best shower/loo facilities I've ever seen. Friendly staff.

Biddulph Gardens are nearby - and are excellent! We also visited Stoke-On-Trent from here, which meant a bracing 3 mile walk to the train station, but also a longer, gorgeous walk along the canal and back up the famous 'killer mile' which hardy locals run each year. !

A site with a difference!

We stayed at this lovely site, with our folding camper, in April. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the site is fairly easy to access and has hard standings and grass pitches with EHU available. The toilet and washing facilities are absolutely superb (probably built by Carlsberg, if Carlsberg built facilities) and possibly the best we have seen.

It is a bit windy, due to being on a hilltop but easily compensated by the superb views of the surrounding area. Two pubs are within walking distance and very welcoming too.

All in all, a highly recommended site and we will certainly visit there again.

A very nice site with excellent facilities for a CS (won best facilities 2016). Easy enough to get to, but DON'T rely on satnav which will take you via the A34 and then along narrow steep roads up to Mow Cop. Use the instructions on their website.

The site is quite sloping, with great views, but the caravan/motorhome hardstandings are terraced into the slope and are flat.

There are plenty of footpaths/tracks all around Mow Cop, one directly from the site (near the loos), for dog walking and plenty more such as around Knypersley reservoir (don't miss the waterfall on the headwaters of the Trent) and along the Macclesfield canal.

There is a good Sainsburys in Biddulph, which is otherwise an uninspiring town, Morrisons in Congleton and Tesco in Kidsgrove, so you won't starve. There is a Texaco garage on the A527 near the junction of the road up to Mow Cop. One small shop in the village about a mile from the site.

The only problem we had was the wind, but the site owners can't help that, it is about 1, 000 feet up after all.

Reviewer: Paul Cornforth 3 reviews from this member

The owner was very helpful on arrival explaining the facilities and taking payment. As other reviewers have stated the toilet and shower block have been newly built and are of a high standard, however the rest of the facilities would benefit from some attention including the removal of the old building machinery and materials etc that are adjacent to the toilet block. The roads accessing the camp site are quite narrow and would be a problem if meeting another caravan coming from the opposite direction.

The site has spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding county side that also look impressive in the evening.

Stayed her whilst walking the Gritstone trail. Which Is right nearby.

This Is a very friendly site. Staff are very welcoming.

The Amenities are one of the best I've seen and used. Toilets and showers.

Immaculate and kept lovely and clean.

Even towels provided, And a tray for lost Items Lots of leaflets for places to visit. All well thought out, for good camping Ideas.

The tent Pitches are not marked out.

But Its obvious where the designated areas are for caravans and motorhomes.

There is a slope to the site and It rises to a terraced area with a dry wall backing onto to It.

This I used as a wind break for my tent, with extra guy ropes. As It was very windy.

As Its up on the high points of the Staffordshire moorland with great views

There are lots of walks and Hiking areas close by.

The Staffordshire moorland walk crosses the North Cheshire way, and The Gritstone trail Also.

This Is an Ideal Base to stay to explore.

As well for Cyclists touring.

All in all a lovely Campsite. I would Highly Recommend.

Reviewer: The mitchells 10 reviews from this member

Not a lot can be added to the reviews. If you have a caravan some of the pitches might be tight with a full awning, although they are level. Views are stunning on a good day, especially at Mow Cop castle, site could be a bit exposed on a bad day in a tent. Facilities are as good as they could get for a CS/CL. Make sure you follow the sites directions not the sat nav. I kept ignoring my sat nav to turn right, coming from Congleton. Went into Biddulph, not a great deal there whether that's because there is a big Sainsburys taking all the trade. Biddulph Gardens close by (National Trust), and just a bit further up the road is the Biddulph grange country park which has several good walks for all abilities. Plenty of places to walk the dog of a lead within a couple of minutes walk from the site. Would I go again Yes even the 2 hour delay was quickly forgotten once we arrived.
