The great outdoors

The great outdoors just got even greater—because at this campsite, you’re on Drayton Manor’s doorstep! Ideal for families looking to explore the park and indulge in a bit of adventurous spirit; book into one of Drayton’s 90 pitches to make the fun last even when you’ve left the park itself.

This site is equipped with everything you’ll need for a classic family camping trip, including a large facilities block, generous washing-up area, and an on-site shop—so you can be sure you’ll never run out of those camping necessities! And don’t worry about the kids getting bored after a thrilling day in the park, because Drayton’s campsite also boasts its own children’s play area! There’s no better way to relax and enjoy Drayton Manor’s peaceful surroundings in the beautiful Staffordshire parkland: make friends with your neighbours for a competitive kick about, and spend an evening outside your pitch enjoying the beautiful, clear skies at night.

The glamorous outdoors

Now if you’re keen to camp, but are less than enthusiastic about the more hands-on aspects of pitching up: don’t worry, Drayton’s glamping option offers a great solution for you and your family! There’s not a soggy ground mat in sight at Drayton’s pre-pitched tents, and you don’t need to worry about bringing the kitchen sink either. These luxury canvases are fully kitted out with everything you could need on your camping family holiday to Drayton Manor: beds, chairs, tables, crockery…the only thing you need to remember to bring is your bedding!

Relax into the evenings on your own private terrace; perfectly lit for a long night of unwinding. You can enjoy all the benefits of Drayton’s campsite, including the children’s play area and on-site shop. Each luxury tent comes completely equipped; pitched and waiting for your arrival. Decked out with stylish features and all the mod cons you need, there’s no better way to balance contemporary needs with a love of the outdoors!

To get you started

There’s so much more to camping and glamping at Drayton Manor Park than barbeques and songs around the fire (although we love those too!) Here’s a few suggestions of how you can make the most of your camping family holiday, and all at the best prices…

The Grill Inn

We’re not suggesting a simple barbeque in front of your tent to kick off the first night of your camping break; Drayton’s premier grill restaurant sits right outside the gates of the park, and a short walk from your campsite. Treat yourself in true style on your glamping break, with a selection of prime steaks, stacked burgers and fresh fish. Order the ribs for something special: cooked low and slow for a mouth-watering 8 hours. You can’t find meat more tender than that! With cuisine inspired by America’s deep south, you’ll feel a world away with a meal at The Grill Inn—and you don’t have to set foot on a plane to get there.

But the most mouth-watering temptation on offer at The Grill Inn this summer for campsite guests is their very own special offer! Whether you’re camping or you’re glamping, families can enjoy 20% off on all meals.

Double the thrills

What’s the best thing about a camping holiday at Drayton Manor Park? Twice the time to spend in the parks! There’s a load to do on your camping break in Staffordshire, but you can’t beat the double-trouble of two days spent on your favourite rides and rollercoasters. Finding yourself annoyed at the long wait on Apocalypse? That’s not a problem when you take advantage of the Stay and Play offer; you can be right there on the doorstep, and first in the queue, the following morning.

It’s not just the queues you’ll be beating when you stay at Drayton’s campsite; it’s the prices too. When you return for another day of fun, you’ll be getting the best value for your day out at just £14 per person for a return theme park ticket!

There’s more?

Even when you’re done for the day on some of Europe’s biggest and best rollercoasters, there’s even more to enjoy in the area surrounding Drayton’s campsite. Although it’s the theme park itself that makes a glamping break the top choice for thrill seekers and outdoor lovers, there’s so much more in Staffordshire to do and visit on your camping family holiday. And here’s just a few…

  • For a little bit of historical beauty, explore the National Trust’s Calke Abbey; a fascinating property just a short drive from Drayton’s campsites.
  • Take yourself skiing without the hassle of a long-haul flight by visiting the nearby Tamworth Snowdome; an all-weather skiing and snowboarding centre, which also has an ice rink!
  • Delight the Thomas the Tank Engine fans in your family (if they haven’t already exploded with excitement in Thomas Land!) with a day trip to the Battlefield Line Steam Railway: a historical train station with a chance to go on a real steam train!
  • Get the most out of your camping holiday with a visit to some more of the great outdoors at the UK’s National Arboretum. Here, you can explore 150 acres of tranquil woodland and spot some wildlife on your way.
