4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This is a really nice site, very clean and tidy, the grass was nicely cut and the staff very friendly. The kids play area is probably the best of all site I've been to. I would defiantly return. Very minor observations regarding the toilet block which would make this a 5 star site would be to provide either a bench... More

We have stayed at The Star twice now as we are Merlin Annual Pass holders and we like to visit Alton Towers for a few days in the summer. Last year we camped (our first time ever). We stayed on grass pitch with electric hook up (next to play area). The staff placed us near the toilet facilities and play... More

We were in the minority because unlike many people we camped whereas most were motorhomes or caravans, and we also didn't use the site as a base for Alton Towers - even though it is so very close. Instead we were relaxed on site, which was big enough to do so for four nights or so. It is quite regulated... More

A thoroughly delightful campsite, with great facilities, exceptionally helpful and knowledgable staff with great views (if you decide to camp near the top of the tenting field). Wendy and Jane were most accommodating and friendly right from the beginning of our stay to the moment we left. The campsite (tent field) wasn't that busy either which was nice, and the... More

Really good trip, pitches were on a slope which was the only negative but website clearly states this. Stayed in an electric tent pitch near the Children's play area, pitch 92. Lovely clean site, plenty of hot water for showers and a great idea for the family bathroom which had a bath and shower over the bath for 5 years... More

Here now, it's bliss, even more now the rowdy groups have gone. So much space and all of it so well looked after and everything so clean. Wildlife everywhere, good walking from the doorstep. Going to enjoy the rest of this week exploring, off to Peak Wildlife today.

This really is a beautiful site in a perfect location for Alton towers it's a shame it's so strict! From arrival we were constantly reminded of quiet policy. We were a group of families ageing from 18 months to 50+ yet we felt like children when we were told it was 'lights out'! We do enjoy sitting chatting but this... More

From the moment we arrived to when we left four days later our whole family loved it the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the shower blocks were spotless and the fact that we were only about five minutes away from alton towers made it even better and we will definitely return

We have stayed here many times and as always a lovely place to come. The toilet and shower block are always clean and tidy, the people that work here are always helpful and will always help as much as they can. A good place to stay if going to Alton towers as a 5 min drive
