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.

Beautiful Autumn

What an amazing location. This was our first visit to this site. It was very clean and tidy. Love the insect house! The site is set in an old quarry and therefore makes a dramatic backdrop. It is next to the country park and Solomon’s Temple. A visit to Pooles caverns is worth it. The staff are knowledgable and have time to answer all questions. A trip to Derwent water is essential if you are interested in the history of the 617 squadron. This time of year the trees colour is amazing too. Also nearby is Castletown and the Blue John mines. Would we visit again? Too right we would. So much to see even for us who are less agile.

Fantastic site in lovely area

Just had a weekend here with friends. chose to go to bottom of the site which is a bit of a walk to the toilet block but ok for us. Site is clean and tidy, refurbished toilet block as well which is lovely enough room to shower and plenty of them. Nice walk to Solomon's Temple then into Buxton. Could be difficult if you not a good walker. Taxis used by site are brilliant. do a fixed price and very friendly drivers. went to the Brasserie for meal excellent. Definately visit again as so much to do around. Excellent for dogs as well although we didnt have ours this time.

Unusual but wonderful setting

This is a site unlike any other we have used. The setting is a little remote, very peaceful, but the walks, and views are literally breathtaking. The walk to Buxton through the woods are superb, but beware they are steep, especially on the way back. That said if you are not a walker, the site has negotiated a favourable rate with a local taxi firm. As usual the wardens were great, and the newly refurbished site is a gem.

The Buxton Trails

Chose Buxton for its proximity to a number of Cycle Trails. All of them reachable directly from the site if you're an able 50miler rider. If not, all trails have parking at each end. They are the High Peak, Tissington, Monsal and Manifold. Plus more off road routes for more extreme rides. Anyway, back to the site! I'm in my fourth season caravaning at this upgrade to the site is amazing, best I've seen!... I think I counted 9 shower cubicles. The shower block is extremely well presented and modern. The site may be fully booked, but no dashing for the shower, always one available. I did notice that being higher, the weather seemed dull and drizzly, but when I ventured out and lower, I got glorious sunshine. TV reception is limited, but mainly non existent. Same with mobile signal, but buying into the WiFi, I got very good internet and messenger ( call and video) communication, it worked very well. Will most definitely pay a revisit!!!

Super Buxton

Decided to go to Buxton again as we had been here in the summer, the site is great for the walks into Buxton and beyond plenty of bus’s from Buxton. Staff are wonderful very accommodating and friendly, we had visitors on the Saturday I let the staff know, not a problem. If you want to eat out we tried The Railway at the far end of the high street great menu,service and cheap, if coffee and chocolate are your thing the old spa baths, check it out. We will book for next year for more than one visit, it’s just a pity it isn’t open all year.
