Why stay here ...

Buxton Club Site has re-opened following extensive refurbishment in 2018, book now to be one of the first to stay.

Read all about the improvements in our Buxton refurb news article.

Conveniently located for easy access to the best features of the beautiful Peak District, yet nestled peacefully away in the idyllic valley floor, Buxton Club Site is the perfect location for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life whilst having easy access to modern comforts. The small, pretty town of Buxton is within walking distance of the caravan park, home to the historic Pavilion Gardens set within 23 acres of beautifully rich scenery and an abundance of restaurants and shops. There are towns to explore in all directions, including the market towns of Leek & Ashbourne.

At Buxton Club site you will be surrounded by the superb Peak District National Park - with its extensive network of cycle ways, this is the ideal destination for those keen to see the best of England's rolling landscapes, whether by bike or by foot. Hikers can relish in reaching the summit of Grin Hill where they can witness the Solomon’s Temple and spectacular views of Buxton and High Peak. If you fancy a stroll on a rainy day, a full set of splendid stately homes can be found situated near to the caravan site, all rich with local history. You will also have the opportunity to absorb the many local customs that are preserved to this day, such as the folk art of "Well Dressing" - an ancient form of flower arrangement that dates from Pagan times.

Well positioned location for town and walks straight from the site!

Buxton Caravan Club Site
Not often we can enjoy the sunshine we had this last weekend when in the Peak district which only added to the delight of our recent stay. Site is in a good location and handy for walks etc as mentioned in the site details. Facilities are modern, spacious and were kept very clean. The band system worked as well as members being able to remember what to do! Thankfully from this week, normal service will be resumed! As with a number of sites, pitch and surrounding areas are not quite up to the standard pre-covid which is not surprising, with lower staff numbers etc but then how many local councils are using 're-wilding' to cover a reduction in maintenance? Nothing at Buxton looked amiss and the extra vegetation does encourage the wildlife and of course the site enjoys wild orchids in certain locations. Mark and the team were very welcoming and extremely helpful on our visit and a real credit to the club. We won't hesitate to visit again later in the year.

Love it here!!

Buxton Caravan Club Site
Such a beautiful place! We have been here twice this year and will definitely return. A very clean site with helpful and friendly staff. So much nature all around, many walks for you to do with a dog and trees for the kids to climb on route!!! You can walk from the campsite into Buxton town which has a lovely park for the kids, indoor markets, shops and restaurants. Go ape is also a 5 / 10 min walk from the site on the way to Buxton, my son and husband loved doing this when we went recently. The WiFi isn’t great, but who needs it - your on holiday - in fact our 14 year old who we thought would struggle without internet access, didn’t miss it all! Can’t wait to go back so much more still to do and places and towns to explore.

Brief Visit

Buxton Caravan Club Site
It is many years since we have been to Buxton site and we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the quarry walls and the layout of the site - I believe it has had a makeover in recent years. Unfortunately, we were only there one night, on the way back from the Lake District, but it is definitely a site which deserves a longer stay. A lovely welcome from the wardens on arrival and the site shop was a delight, especially as other sites have, understandably, cut back in these Covid times. There were basics (thanks for the emergency kitchen roll!) and local fresh baked items. I went in to buy two pasties and came out with half a dozen items which were all delicious. I can't remember which band system the site was using for the facilities block but, for some reason it was a nightmare - of course, people make mistakes and take the band away or don't remove it from the hook - but, when either of us visited the facilities block there was always an issue with the bands outside v the number of people inside - sometimes empty, sometimes over-populated. Only having 4 bands for quite a big site was probably a challenge. Hopefully, the whole band system can be a distant memory from next week?! Thank you for a lovely, if brief, stay.

We will return!

Buxton Caravan Club Site
We only stayed 2 nights but wish we could have stayed longer. We particularly loved the wild flowers allowed to grow on the grass and in the hedgerows and the homes for ‘little creatures’. The greenery growing along the quarry face made everything feel so very natural, we much prefer this to places that are neat as a pin. We had a great pitch, the number of which I have noted! The site wardens are very friendly and doing a brilliant job. Since the dastardly virus arrived we have been using our own facilities, mainly to protect the people that have to clean the showers and toilets as well as other members and ourselves. Not sure if we will ever go back to using communal facilities. As for the goods from the Bakewell Pudding shop, it would be rude not to enjoy them!

Buxton for walking, peace and quiet.

Buxton Caravan Club Site
The site is well placed within an ancient quarry which makes it quite a quiet spot, disturbed mainly by birdsong. There are some super short walks starting right from the site through woods, fields and to viewpoints. At times you can hear the boy racers in the distance but not too much. There was a fish and chip van in the Saturday evening - not as good as my local chippie but it saved cooking. The wardens have a well stocked shop full of lovely local bakery goodies - we tried the pain au chocolat, croissants and stilton scones. We took a 10 year old boy with us who had been hoping to find other children to play with. The nature of the area means that this site is probably more suited to people interested in hill walking or visiting Buxton and so there were no other children to play with. This would make a very good adults only site.
