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.

Large campsite, well organised with modern facilities

Buxton Caravan Club Site
We've stayed here a few times, twice since covid and now recently as rules have relaxed. It was great to get back, the site was running near capacity with only remaining pitches available on the furthest end of the site. The warden was allocating pitches to save walking back to reception and to help people get settled asap. We were told to reverse onto the pitch with drivers side to the marker as normal. The pitch we stayed on was 99 and i thought it looked on par with other pitches all of which are flat and a good size, with the exception of one pitch which I noticed hadn't been taken or allocated that evening. I don't think all pitches should be charged at the same rate unless they meet certain criteria. The toilet block is very modern and nicely done. It was spotlessly clean. Overall a very modern, well managed site that i would like to continue visiting to further explore the area.

Delights of Derbyshire

Buxton Caravan Club Site
We spent 6 nights at Grin Low in mid September 21 on a standard pitch with awning and were delighted to see such improvements made around the site particularly with the modernised and airy facilities block. With Covid restrictions easing and more information available due to the reopening of the Information Centre on site there was no shortage of things to do in the area. This was our third visit to the site at Buxton and we think these improvements show the way forward for the rest of the network. As always with club sites we found the site staff very helpful, diligent in their duties and always 'on top' of the tasks. No hesitation in recommending this beautiful site in a wonderful setting with excellent walking routes, lots of photographic opportunities and delightful off road cycle tracks but a short distance away. Looking forward to another visit in the near future and hoping to book a serviced pitch next time.

Brilliant site

Buxton Caravan Club Site
My wife and I stayed for three days and loved this site. The location is good being a 30 minute walk into Buxton and the facilities (recently refurbished I believe) are possible some of the best we have ever come across. A quiet location on the edge of a country park the site is situated within an old quarry so quite sheltered. The quarry wall makes up one side of the site but it is not claustrophobic. The wardens were very helpful and the wash blocks were kept spotless. We would love to go back.

Great site in great location

Buxton Caravan Club Site
Stayed at this site for the first time during September 2021. The site is in a fantastic location for walking and cycling, including walking to Buxton. The town is nice and there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. The site facilities are new, clean and there are ample toilets and showers. The wardens were friendly and efficient. The facilities are at the top of the site and therefore quite a way from the pitches at the bottom. There is also patchy phone signal, 4G and WiFi. You will need a tv lead to connect to the port on the back of the electric boxes for any tv signal. The site shop sells tv leads and has a great selection of goods from a local bakery.

Beautiful Site

Buxton Caravan Club Site
Lovely picturesque site in an old quarry above Buxton. Pitches are quite big, we had a serviced pitch, number 19 with beautiful views from our awning. Wardens are friendly and helpful, facillities are clean and well looked after. Nice walks around the site, including walks into Buxton and also further a field. Also not to far away from Bakewell, Matlock, Castleton, Chatsworth and other tourist attractions. I have had to rate this for families as there does not seem to be a pass option, but there is no pkay park here if you do have children. Thoroughly recommend this site.
