General

  • 'Sparkling showers and huge pitches'
  • Two miles from Alton Towers
  • Spectacular countryside on the edge of the Peak District

To Alton Towers! Staffordshire's popular Lower Micklin Touring Park is just five minutes' drive from the whirls and rides of this most exciting theme park to have the kids most excited; you might need a second day there just to make sure you get round the lot.

And Lower Micklin is also at the edge of the Peak District and a few miles from Uttoxeter Racecourse for more Staffs holiday happenings – buses to Uttoxeter, the racecourse and nearby Cheadle run straight from the bottom of the park's drive. A public footpath walk leads to Alton village and the local pub is half a mile away by footpath or country lane. (Miles of other walks are all around: just look up at the walls on site when you're doing the washing-up: you'll see what's meant by that when you get there...)

Lower Micklin is set in 10 acres of grassland with plenty of space for the kids to run around and a one-kilometre track for big folk to walk or jog. It has new heated shower and toilet facilities with free hot water and a family bathroom with toilet, shower, basin and baby changing unit.

The park also has rubbish and recycling facilities, covered washing-up sinks with hot water and – a tad more excitement for the sprogs – a ball field with goal posts and a play area with slide, swings and a climbing wall. For Alton eats, local takeaways deliver to the site, and both Alton and Denston close by have food shops and pubs.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
