Something for everyone
Things to do and see close
to Lower Micklin Touring Park
You may wish to stay at Lower Micklin to just do nothing! That’s fine.
However, the following suggestions may help if you are looking for things to do.
Alton Towers & Days Out
Many of our guests initially find us while looking for somewhere to stay close to Alton Towers, just two miles from Lower Micklin. However, it doesn’t take long to realise that there is much more to see and do in the local area from walking and cycling in the beautiful Churnet Valley and Peak District to family days out at the Peak Wildlife Park, Uttoxeter Race Course and more.
Eat & Drink
You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating locally. The village of Alton has four pubs all serving food ranging from traditional pub fare to Pizzas and Thai. The award winning Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Cafe is only a mile away whilst a short drive will take you to the Duncombe Arms gastropub or eateries in the towns of Uttoxeter or Ashbourne.
If you don’t fancy moving, plenty of local take-aways will deliver to Lower Micklin.
It’s within 5 minutes of Alton towers…the local pubs and cafes are great and within walking distance
Local towns and villages
The local villages of Alton and Denstone can cater for your everyday needs with a general store, post office and farmshop.
Larger shops can be found in the towns of Uttoxeter, or Ashbourne, while a trip to shopping centres in Derby or the Retail Shopping Village at Trentham Gardens in Stoke will provide more serious retail therapy.
Outdoors & Peak District
With famous locations like Dovedale Stepping Stones, The Roaches, Bakewell etc within a short drive, you may be enticed to leave the local area to engage in your preferred outdoor activity. However, you do not need to travel that far to experience the glorious scenery of the Staffordshire Moorlands right on our doorstep. A public footpath runs through Lower Micklin which will take you onto the Staffordshire Way and the Churnet Valley Trail for walking, cycling, rock climbing, horse riding … or just to visit the serene Ramblers Retreat tea rooms in Dimmingsdale for tea and cake.
