The Camping and Caravanning Club has increased its campsite count by purchasing the Star Caravan and Camping Park in Staffordshire.

The rural site is likely to appeal to those with families, due to its proximity to Alton Towers Theme Park (just a mile away), but it will also make a great base for those wishing to explore the Peak District and the Staffordshire Moorlands. It’s also close to the market towns of Ashbourne, Leek, Cheadle and Uttoxeter.

The site currently has 195 pitches, five-star washrooms, a motorhome-service point, launderette, a gas-exchange point. It will open in March; for more information visit the site’s website by clicking here or the Club’s site here.
