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.

Exceptional Staff very clean and tidy

A very nice site with lovely walks close by but you do need transport if dining out but this is not a problem. Site shop has some lovely local produce. Being in a quarry anyone who has a constantly barking dog is a little irritating as it echo's around the site. But i would highly recommend this site you get a warm welcome and extremely helpful staff. Very enjoyable

There's always one

First time at Buxton and we will return. Fabulous location for wonderful country yomps and a good walk into Buxton. We cannot comment on the facilities as we were self-contained and the only things open were toilets and washing up area. The site has lovely touches like insect houses, a help yourself herb garden, protected wildlife areas, and feels very open and spacious despite the large 'cliff' faces. The little on site shop was well-stocked with essentials and edible treats such as pies, pastries, clotted cream. The only slight sticking point was the length of time it took to process each arrival, which created a long traffic queue of folk wanting to get set up and make a cuppa. It took over a hour for some vehicles to get access to the site. We also think that the site could benefit from an additional amenities block as some pitches involved quite a walk to the one block on site. Covid measures were in place, but that's when there's always one who thinks they are above such things and a global killer virus won't get them, nor are they willing to protect the vulnerable. Washing up facilities were clearly labelled one person at a time and 99.9% of folk complied, waiting patiently outside until their turn. The one, pompous, 'rules don't apply to me' woman came in, maskless, and was courteously and politely reminded of the measures in place, but apparently 'I won't be long' is a good-enough excuse. This is not a criticism of the site and the wardens who were doing their best to adhere to the welfare measures for the many. We had to use our ramps to get a level pitch. As the site is located in a former quarry and is surrounded by high rocks, we found internet and mobile signals were very weak indeed, however we managed to get a strong TV reception. The rooks swooping high above the site kept us entertained.

Fantastic site...

Just spent 3 nights here, our first time in the peaks as a family. Really friendly and helpful staff, especially Mark who greeted us at the entrance and advised us what we needed to do. On site facilities were very well kept, excellent toilet and shower block, always clean when we used them. Numbers limited to four at a time due to covid which was reassuring. The site location is great, you really feel away from it all, but so easy to walk into Buxton, and to Salomons temple, it’s literally all on the door step!! No play area for the kids but tbh this wasn’t a problem as there is so much else to do. Wanted to try the Mam Tor walk but the weather wasn’t on our side so looks like we wil have to revisit again - can’t wait!!

Lovely Site

Superb location, stayed here with our two dogs for two nights recently, enjoyed the trails through the woods to Buxton town and the haul up the hill to Solomon's temple, well worth it for the breathtaking view from the top of the tower! Good, clean on site facilities, all COVID prevention measures in place. Will be going back next year, hopefully when the weather is a little drier!

A beautifully situated gem.

The quarry provides a lovely setting, and the general location is excellent for accessing Buxton (by foot) and many great walks in the surrounding moorland. Newly refurbished, the facilities are excellent. As ever, site staff are great. Covid restrictions were in place but worked well so long as visits to the shower block were made outside of peak times. Definitely one of C&MCs all round best sites. 4 nights October 2020.
