Five Caravan / Motorhome Pitches
Hi, I’m Chris, I run Horton Common along with my father Robert.

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Horton Common our small site for caravans, motorhomes and tents. We are licenced through the Camping and Caravanning Club as a Certified Site. Horton Common is located in the Staffordshire Moorlands with expansive views over the Peak District National Park. We have a road from the site entrance to our fully serviced hard standing pitches. Therefore, our site is ideal for both caravans and motorhomes even when the weather is being stereotypically British.

Five Fully Serviced Hardstanding Pitches for Caravans and Motorhomes

Fully Serviced Hard Standing Pitches

At Horton Common, we provide five hardstanding fully serviced pitches. There is a road from the entrance to each pitch, and every pitch provides hard standing for the caravan/motorhome and car. Each pitch has a 16A power supply with individual RCD and two freshwater taps, one for a permanent connection and one for filling containers. A trough and hose system is also provided to each pitch for grey water disposal.

Wide Entrance with Good Visibility

As caravanners our selves we setup Horton Common with all the features and services we would want on our ideal small caravan site. As such we made sure that Horton Common had a wide entrance and the gate to the site was set back 18m.

Hence, you can pull straight off the public road and onto Horton Common without having to open a gate. However, we do have a gate to Horton Common which also has a code lock. Guests are provided with the code to open the gate upon booking.

Easy to Use CDP (Chemical Disposal Point)

We raised the CDP emptying point to be as easy to use as possible. The fencing provides privacy and shelter from the wind. We have received many positive comments from our guests over the years on how easy our CDP at Horton Common is to use.

On-Site Defibrillator

We have a defibrillator installed on-site which is part of a local network. You can read more about this AED (Automated External Defibrillator) in this post.
