 Very welcoming park with superb facilities and fantastic views.

You really need to give this site a visit. Our 9 year old grandson woke up in the morning and couldn’t believe the spectacular views.

As park managers of some 40 yrs we can say this site is outstanding.

The local area and people were also very friendly.

 Great views over the surrounding countryside.

Very helpful and communicative owner.

Very good facilities, better than some club sites.

The site is on a surprisingly busy back road which means it can be noisy, but the traffic does reduce overnight.

 Great campsite.

Duncan was amazingly helpful, nothing too much trouble.

Only downside was a very noisy family behind us.

Site was lovely and clean and fantastic facilities.

Reviewer: Dolores99 12 reviews from this member

 We really like the shower/loo block, plenty of both.

The pitch is very spacious and it's good value at £16pn including electric.

The down sides for us are the noises from the road and airplanes. And the ground is extremely hard.

If you have kids, there's no designated area for them to play.

Reviewer: Geegee46 9 reviews from this member

 A great little stopover with stunning views. Follow the directions from their website rather than your sat nav. Sloping in places but some level pitches and some hardstanding.

The toilet and shower facilities are fantastic and very clean. Harry the owner is very friendly and welcoming and its great to see how they have developed the site. Great value at £15 including ehu.

A nice walk to the castle ruins about 15 mins away although the path a little overgrown but definitely worth going on a good day for the 360 degrees views for miles.

Reviewer: Hecate105 10 reviews from this member

 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!

Reviewer: Wibplus 2 reviews from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Mrs. Bonce 300 reviews from this member

 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.

Reviewer: ZIZAG 29 reviews from this member

 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.
