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.

    Camp site was clean and easily accessed, Dave was brilliant and we treated ourselves to a cooked breakfast which was amazing! Great service from the pretty young blonde lady (sorry didn't catch her name).
    Previous issues noted on the website are resolved i.e. Easy access to the toilets and the grass was cut every day!
    New toilet block being built as we speak!
    Thanks for a great stay!

    Warm friendly welcome. Great cafe serving lovely food and amazing cakes. Kids loved the animals, as specially the meerkats and donkeys. The weather was a terrible when we arrived, Pouring down with rain, the owner, kindly went above and beyond. Giving us a caravan pitch with a hard standing so our car wouldn't get stuck in the mud. We also loved the little shed with lots of plugs to charge our phones & freezer for the ice packs. The wifi in the cafe was also really handy.

    Disliked: 

    We didn't have any dislikes, but would recommend a few more toilets & showers, the ones on offer were nice and clean.

    Lovely quite pitch.
    Cafe lovely. Delicious home made cakes

    Disliked: 

    Only 2 toilets that need a good clean and paint. Although only 5 pitches the toilets appeared to be shared with everyone who is horse riding and in cafe so sometimes had to q. Could do with its own toilet block.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comments we only claim to have Wi Fi in the cafe sorry you couldn't manage to access it in your tent, most folks like to get away from social media etc !
We pride our selves on being child friendly just take a look at all the 5*star reviews on Face Book !

Cute little site with farm and little play areas for the kiddies 26/07/2017

    Friendly owner/manager. Quaint and pretty site. Had a cafe but we didn't get chance to use it. Little shed with electric plugs ensured our blow up furniture could still be done via electric pump.

    Disliked: 

    The distance from the tents to the toilets/showers. Because the grass was very long and wet from the torrential rain we had to drive it, and there's a big gate you have to open/close every time you go there... but that was only a minor thing. Overall we liked the site. Well worth the money.

Many thanks for your kind comments, we are in the process of applying for a grant for a new play area , hopefully fingers crossed we will be successful !
