With Alton Towers so near - only just over 1 mile away from the main gate, we are the number one choice for visitors who are looking for a great family-friendly, Camping and Caravan Park experience.

We offer great value for money, free clean facilities,and are in one of the most beautiful locations in the Staffordshire Moorlands situated close to Dovedale, and The Peak District National Park, and also the market towns of Ashbourne, Leek, Cheadle and Uttoxeter. The Cities of Derby, and Stoke on Trent, are located around about a 45 - minute car drive away.

We are focused on serving families, and 'mature-minded' couples only. You can Camp, bring a Caravan or Motor Home, or...Why not hire one of our 2010 'Rose Award' Quality Graded Static Holiday Caravans?

Important Note: We do not allow groups of 3 or more of the same sex to stay with us and operate an 'all-quiet' time of 11pm. Please read our Terms and Conditions and See FAQ's.
