Goat from the little farm

General

  • Simple and family-owned rural site within an equestrian centre
  • Covering 80 acres, within eight miles of Alton Towers
  • Nature trail, pony rides and café serving homemade food and cakes

You'll probably be busy at Beaver Hall Equestrian Centre near Staffordshire's Leek. It's deep in the Staffordshire moorlands, near Alton Towers and on the edge 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 (small charge applies) 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: you probably won't need to nag the kids to get out and about...

As well as all this, 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 10 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 toilets and a shower, so your own cassette loo is essential; remember to bring your torch if you're trotting around at midnight...

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. The café has free wifi.

Please note

Access is down a long uneven farm track: please take care as horses and riders are about.

    Quiet site, lovely views, animals on site, petting animals available on selected days and times.

    Disliked: 

    Bit of a walk to the toilets, if the weather is bad it's quite a boggy walk.

    Pitches are on an incline, without a motor mover some campers may find it quite difficult to reverse and get the angle right.

    There appears to be some sort of sewer pit in the ground next to pitch one. We were on pitch two, and could smell it quite strong at times, which was off putting. The lid was held down by a few stones, and the lid wasn't fully closed because someone had left a hosepipe hanging into it.

    Children need to be supervised near the electric fence. It is "double fenced" but only by means of a rope ties onto stakes in the ground. One of the other campers had allowed their children to pull some of the stakes out, leaving the bare electric fence.

From the manager...

Just like to point out that we are only a small site & as we have a lot of school trips, pony club & various activities we have to have electric fence warning signs !

It should not really advertise itself as a campsite.08/24/2018

    The field opposite our pitch, which we enjoyed going in.

    Disliked: 

    Can it really be pitched as a camp site? I'd say no. And for the fairly dire condition the pitching area is in, was extremely expensive at £25 or so per night. All energies at Beaver Hall, as the picture suggests, goes into the equestrian centre and the pitch up area is an add on should one be desperate to have to stay over.. The man in charge's mannerisms and communication was also not pleasing, coming across as unpleasant from the outset.

    As a family we do like a horse trek now and then and hoped this would be available.

    Nothing for children aged 7+ to do except play with a plank of wood and dangerous nails sticking out of a piece of wood! Although I will give credit to imagination that was birthed - my 9 yr old son seems to be able to create anything out of what he has to work with! (Or in this case, play with!)

From the manager...

Unbelievable comments, strange we have families coming back week after week ! Sorry you could not entertain yourselves.

Great base location for Alton Towers. Small friendly run site.08/05/2018

    The site was basic but this is what we wanted. The site isn't far from Alton Towers. Great place to set up camp. Quiet 5 pitch site. Facilities cleaned frequently. We loved the horses, lots of competitions going on. The cafe is lovely. The homemade cakes and food is stunning. I have definitely put on a good few lbs. If you like animals especially horses this is the place to stay.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches would be better if level. The site is very open so windy. The views are worth the wind.
