Leek Camping & Caravanning Club site is located in the Staffordshire Moorlands and, with the southern Peak District within a stone’s throw, will appeal to those who enjoy nothing more than a good walk to take in the local area. A little north of the site, the Roaches, a craggy outcrop of rocks, provides a playground for climbers while its miles of paths satisfy seasoned ramblers. The villages of Upper Hulme and Meerbrook populate the area. The latter has a reservoir, Tittesworth, which is within walking distance of the Leek site. There are pleasant walks around the shores, and at the north end, bird hides. There is also a Visitors Centre, adventure playground and picnic area. The site has 75 grass or hardstanding pitches (some seasonal), most with electric hook-up.
Non-members are welcome and may join on-site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
The site is also well placed to explore the Potteries. Stoke-on-Trent, south of the site, has several museums and galleries dedicated to the ceramic industry, which gave the Potteries its name. Other days out from the site include Alton Towers theme park, Chatsworth House, Blackbrook Zoological Parkland the National Trust’s Ilam Park near Ashbourne. Another great way to enjoy the local scenery is to take a ride on a train. South of the site, the Churnet Valley Railway chugs its way through beautiful countryside known as Staffordshire’s “Little Switzerland”.
