New Broom Camping and Caravan Site: Pitch

General

  • A 10-minute drive from Alton Towers and Uttoxeter Racecourse
  • Large family-friendly bar and restaurant with events and takeaways
  • Spacious beer garden with play area and large climbing frame

Up for theme park thrills? New Broom Camping and Caravan Site is 10 minutes' drive away from Alton Towers – and has a comfy number of amenities to have you sorted on site too.

Set in two peaceful acres with flat grass pitches, the park has a traditional pub (which is both large and family-friendly) with a family restaurant. There's also a big beer garden with a play area. And it's all in the small Staffordshire village of Checkley, a short drive away from Uttoxeter Racecourse and The Potteries as well as Alton Towers.

The pub serves decently priced drinks and meals including carvery, cooked breakfasts and pizza (pizza is available for takeaway too). It's got a pool table for evenings of friendly competition, and hosts regular events such as rock nights, tribute nights and darts nights.

New Broom also has a toilet/shower facility that guests can use free of charge, 24 hours a day.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The restaurant is open between 01/01 and 12/31.

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Minimum spacing of 2 metres between pitches.

If reception is closed on arrival: please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Good facilities but not amazing for the price.11/22/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomEmily B.Confirmed

  • Power optional cement/asphalt and grass travel trailer site
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Ease of access to everything like hook up, showers, toilets, waste and waste, which were all in good condition and clean. Easy to find site which was close to nice walks in the area and found an awesome pub (one on site was closed) which was very welcoming and dog friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Hard standing was a touch small and meant we had to go on the grass when coming and going which with the wet weather was a bit muddy. Would have liked it to be a bit wider to fit a motorhome and still have space to get out as that is why we requested hardstanding in the winter. Was also on quite a busy road so could hear the traffic going by so I felt was a touch pricy for what it was especially with the pub on site being closed (we were aware of this in advance and was offered refund but struggled for nearby places).
