Fairboroughs Farm Caravan Site: Views

General

  • Well-maintained and peaceful farm site in the Staffordshire Moorlands
  • A 10-minute drive from Leek and on the edge of the Peak District
  • Surrounded by 150 acres of hills and woodland for wanders

Set off on a foray at Fairboroughs Farm Caravan Site and you’ll be in good company – this spot 10 minutes’ drive from Leek, with roots stretching as far back as the 13th century, has been a popular place for stays in the Staffordshire Moorlands and on the edge of the Peak District National Park since 1967.

Visitors are said to return to this place year after year, because of the Lowe family’s hospitality as well as the lovely location, so it’s a brill bet for friendly breaks in scenic surrounds. Make sure to pull the owners aside for a chat after you arrive – they’re always happy to share info on the local area, including which country pubs they’d recommend.

Speaking of the surrounds, they're chock-full of cycling and walking trails. While on wanders through the 150 acres of hills and woodlands circling the park, stay on the lookout for red deer as several guests have spotted these rare creatures prancing about.

Cast your gaze over the working sheep farm’s animals too, including hundred of ewes and lambs, along with free-range chickens, ducks, pet ponies and dogs. Got your own canine? They’re welcome to come along for a hol as long as they’re well behaved.

Other key bits and bobs to note are that the TV reception’s decent at the park and there’s a security gate for safety. Off site, Rudyard Lake’s a 10-minute drive away for sailing, fishing, canoeing and row boating.

    Great little area to “just get away from it all”. Nice large pitches that were fairly level and picnic benches with every pitch.
    There is 1 toilet and shower that were constantly immaculate during our stay and clearly kept on top of with cleaning.
    We had a warm welcome and we were pointed in the direction of a lovely walk and any questions we had were answered.
    There was a secure gate to the farm that was a really nice feeling of security.
    The nearest pub took us around 50mins to get to walking, but that was with a 2 year old on tow! And we had a lovley Sunday lunch there.
    We will most definitely be revisiting in the summer!

    We enjoyed a lovely 3 night break for New year at Fairboroughs Farm. The pitch has spectacular views over the field of the beautiful countryside. This site is in a stunning location with some fantastic walks both direct from site and a short drive away. The owners recommended Tittesworth and Rudyard. Both definitely worth a trip and only about 10 mins drive away.

    The site has a toilet and shower which were spotlessly clean. The chemical disposal area is also well kept.

    The pitch is fully serviced, which is always a bonus. Good level hardstanding pitche with beautiful views.

    The site itself is on a working farm and is lovely and peaceful. It is down its own private lane with gates access making you feel really secure. Access is via a key fob which you receive on arrival.

    We loved a little morning wander around the site each day.There is a cute little duck pond and you can see the sheep and horses up in the fields.

    The owners are so friendly and welcoming. I didn't catch any names except gorgeous Milo the dog. We had such an amazing time and would highly recommend a stay at this tranquil site.

Outside the Peak District, rev things up with a go on the rides of Alton Towers (half an hour), England’s second most visited theme park after Legoland, then follow up with a calmer couple of hours at Rudyard Lake (10 minutes).
