General

  • Within a leading equestrian centre and eight miles from Alton Towers
  • In the Staffordshire moorlands and next to the Peak District
  • Farm park and nature trails on site

We expect you'll be busy at near Staffordshire's Leek. It's in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands, near Alton Towers and on the doorstep of the Peak District National Park with piles of attractions and activities for all ages nearby – and it's also set within an excellent equestrian centre and has heaps to do on site.

Footpaths crisscross the 80 acres of Beaver Hall, a nature trail snakes around the site's 12,000 trees and the Churnet Valley railway line lies to the west for steam and diesel trainspotting. The site farm park (£2 per person) is visited by meerkats, owls and a snake each weekend in summer; there are plenty of open grass areas on site to play on, and there's a play area with swings, a seesaw swing, a rope ladder and goalposts: we don't think you'll need to nag the kids to get out and about.

But let's talk horses. Beaver Hall is within a top equestrian centre and has the Hope Valley Saddlery Shop among its first-rate facilities, where short pony rides and riding lessons are available for adults and kids. (Please note that these must be booked in advance and that for insurance purposes riders must be over two years old and weigh less than ten stone.)

Dressage and showjumping events are held at weekends, so go and compete if you're a horsey type as Beaver Hall extends its friendly welcome to guests' horses too.

The basic site amenities include two loos and a shower; remember to bring your torch if you're trotting around at midnight...

Mare facilities? Another whinnying touch is the Lodge café on site, serving home-cooked food, tasty cakes, hot drinks and takeaway food from snacks to full meals. Campers can collect hot water from here to take back to their pitch and bring their freezer packs to the café to be frozen. The café has free wifi.

Beaver Hall buzzes with activity and a fun family atmosphere at weekends and in summer holidays because of its equestrian centre, nature trail, farm park and café, but is a peaceful place when the sun goes down for getting some good shut-eye.

    Super place! Loads to do: gorse riding, petting zoo, cafe. Also close to Ashbourne, Tissington and much more. It's not a perfect, 5 star, luxury site, but if you're not bothered about that then you'll love it!

From the manager...

Such a contrast to the review below, really sorry you struggled with the short walk to the toilets and the WiFi can be accessed in the cafe no problem.
We also pride ourselves on being child friendly I'm sorry you have had such a bad experience maybe you could have taken the time to speak to us directly so we could address your concerns !

    The place was great, we liked it also as it was not masive, getting to see even the bunnies and cats and bearded draggons every day in there barn...... the ducks wander all over and the lambs in there barn where so cute. both my daughters were able to make a booking while we where there, for a pony ride which they both enjoyed. The pitch was a good size and we where a small walk to the toilets/showers and they are building a new block right now which will be right next door to the camping area.
    there is a nature walk opposite the camping area which walked past the horses in there rest paddocks.

    Disliked: 

    the rain on a few days but they had no control over that one.....
