Updated 23/2/2021

We are currently trying to interpret the latest advice from HM Government regarding opening of toilet blocks on caravan parks. We are accepting bookings for after 12th  April. However, the guidance may mean that we are only allowed to accept guests with their own toilet facilities until 17th May. We will keep you updated with the latest advice from our professional organisation as it is released. Thank you for your patience. For details about our cancellation due to Covid-19 policy, please visit our FAQ page.


Thank you to everyone who accepted a voucher for their cancelled visits last year. There have been changes to some of our pitch fees for this year but please rest assured that if you are using a voucher we will credit you with the same number of nights as you originally paid for even if the price has increased. (eg The standard grass pitch has increased from £18 to £20 per night. If you booked two nights on a standard grass pitch at £18 per night we will not charge you the increased price for the two nights). PLEASE REMEMBER TO ENTER YOUR VOUCHER CODE IN THE 'SPECIAL REQUESTS' BOX.

 We are a small, award winning, family run campsite just outside Alton in Staffordshire with glorious views over rolling countryside and the Weaver Hills and yet within easy reach of Alton Towers, the Peak District, the Staffordshire Way and the world famous Potteries. We are ideally located for adrenalin filled days at Alton Towers (2 miles), great walking and cycling from the gate, brilliant pubs and of course the Peak District National Park just 20 minutes away. 

We have 30 well spaced pitches (17 Hard Standing, 4 Super Grass and 9 Grass) all with  electric hook-up and stunning views over the Churnet Valley. Download our site map.

We welcome families, friends and couples and we offer Exclusive Use hiring for special occasions from family gatherings for a Big BIrthday to Weddings. Our guests love the open spaces for football, BBQs and fun. Please get in touch to discuss your special event.

    Overall, a great site, very very clean, very quiet, exactly what we hoped caravanning would be like, would definitely recommend it. Just hope future sites are of the same standard because the bar has now been set.


    The new purpose-built toilet/shower block is very very nice - possibly one of the best showers I've had on a campsite - and I like to stay on 5 star sites normally. Very new, very clean.


    The site is very quiet & peaceful with a play area for children and a good sized, mowed field where a ball can be kicked around. We really enjoyed our stay at this well thought out, family run campsite and would recommend it to other users visiting the area.
