Leek Camping Barns Leek Staffordshire
Budget Camping Barns
Leek Camping Barns are ideally situated to be your base to explore the local area around the lovely traditional market town of Leek, in the Staffordshire Moorlands. It is within easy walking distance (1 mile) of the town, but in the great British countryside that opens onto beautiful views across open countryside to Bradnop and Morridge where you can enjoy your camping experience in more comfort than a tent.
There are two barns offering budget (£10 pppn) accommodation to campers who want to be free of lugging their tents around and have added protection from the great British weather that can spoil what should be an enjoyable experience.
The barns are part of Padwick Farm which was built in 1848 of lovely mottled pink sandstone. The traditional cowsheds use to house milking jersey cows until recently. The barns are kept in their traditional black and white style. The character has been retained as much as possible and materials recycled to be environmentally friendly. The dairy is now a shower room and has been extended using wood from the old hen cote to accommodate a communal area.
The bottom barn sleeps up to eight people and the top barn sleeps up to seven people on wooden platforms. Sleeping bags are required. There are basic cooking facilities in each barn and a covered communal area with wood burning stove. There is also the opportunity to have a traditional camp fire in a ring of stones.
After a day’s hiking you can relax in the warm and dry and be refreshed and ready for the next day. Individual, groups and pets welcome subject to terms and conditions. Booking is advisable. There is off road parking and security lighting for more peace of mind.
