We stayed for 2 nights at the ready camp on this site. We were going to Alton towers for the weekend and this is the ideal location only a 5 minute drive to the theme park. We arrived late at the campsite and I had called ahead to let them know, the staff were so accommodating and helpful. When we...

We booked a 3 bed caravan but on arrival we were told the boiler had broken in the 3 bed so they swapped us to a 2 bed supposedly higher standard caravan. Unfortunately we hadn't noticed when we booked that you have to bring your own bedding covers and there wasn't anything on the emails mentioning that you needed it...

We are regular holiday park visitors. This part is a bit different to the Park Resorts, Haven and Hoburne that we are used to but it seemed like an ideal base for visiting Alton Towers. The site is more focused to tents, tourers and mobile caravans rather than holidaymakers wanting statics, it does have a lot of owner vans too...

Lovely and reasonable cost site which was used whilst myself, nephew, his mum and his pal all went to Alton Towers. The toilets are spotless and there are plenty of excellent showers with hairdryer points. Its quiet and a lovely area. We however booked for a grass standing hook up pitch as I had an awning. This was a mistake...

We hired the ready camp for 3 nights in April. The beds are really comfy, the dining area really well set out and the kitchenette has everything you need to make basic meals and the all important bacon sarnie in the morning. We stayed here so that we could visit Alton Towers over two days. There is a playground area...

The site is well cared for, nice and clean and looked after by a friendly team. We found the toilets and showers to always be spotless with plenty of hot...

We live 40 minutes away from this site and this was the first time we stayed here. Managed to get as super pitch with water and drainage which made our stay that bit easier.
