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.

Stunning location

Site is in the basin of an old quarry so very unique. Lovely to look out of your motorhome or caravan and see the walls of rock.and watch them change colour as the day go's on and the sunshine helps to make the rocks appear to change.a must if you are able is a visit to Solomons tower.fantastic views.also the beautiful town of Buxton. Again if your fit enough is a short walk away down through the woods.and bit of an uphill walk back.but taxi available.

Beautiful Buxton

Stayed for 5 Nights in August - booked late and was surprised to get a pitch - our 2nd site on our Peak District 3 week tour - we nearly cancelled the others to stay here! What a picturesque location - we pitched up to face the cliffs and did not put our Windscreen cover on so we could see the view and the lights on the cliffs during the evening - then pulled our blind across. Great walk through woods down to Buxton Town and we did the walk back but feel some may find it too much. We had all weather - but sunshine or rain the walking and views were wonderful and Buxton Park was lovely to just sit and while away the time. Site itself was very clean, tidy and we loved all the little insect areas around the site. Wardens were very helpful with walking routes. Again - our first taste of Buxton - we will definitely be returning.

Good campsite.

Just came back after ataying there for 9 nights. Newly refurbished, immaculate facilities, the wardens out of this world. One negative to my mind: it is a largs site 118 pitches with only one toilet block near the entrance. Campers at the bottom fields would have a long walk to the toilet or collecting water. Otherwise it is great.

Fabulous site

Visited the site for 5 nights earlier this month (August) and were blown away by the pretty location and cleanliness of the site and facilities. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We thoroughly recommend this site. A jewel in the network.

A Return to Buxton

It is over 10 years since we visited Buxton. It was always a very pleasant site set in old quarry above Buxton. At 400 metres, I think the highest site on the network. The only reason we stopped visiting was because we retired and could holiday mid week / off peak. Buxton was and is much easier to get into at weekends than the likes of Chatsworth or Castleton. Since our last visit the site has been refurbished. This included the addition of service pitches, a new larger amenities block and a drive over MH grid. One deletion though was the play area, which is now service pitches. The site is very well presented by the wardens with many little set pieces that will delight the kids. Biodiversity is also well catered for with bug hotels and small areas left unmown. Many walks are available direct from the site. Solomons temple provides amazing views over Buxton and the surrounding area and takes about 20 minutes to reach. Buxton itself can be walked into through the woods in about 30 minutes, although the path is fairly steep and has certainly got longer and steeper in an upward direction in the last 10 years.😂 The details of a reasonably priced taxi are provided in case the legs are not willing. Most freeview channels are available if you connect to the TV port on the EHU bollard. At the top of the site on pitch 6, we were able to make calls on O2 and EE, although 3 / 4G was variable from passable to non existent. Site WiFi was OK for emails and browsing, although the site was nowhere near full. It certainly won't be another 10 years before we return.
