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.

First Visit

This was our first visit and we enjoyed the stay, however we were surprised to see the Site Full sign up for the duration of our site even though there were clearly vacant pitches!! The staff were hard working and helpful and we could not fault the facilities although felt that there could be more service points around the site.

Halloween visit to Buxton

We arrived for our first stay at Buxton site on the last week of October which was a very miserable rainy day however the lady warden in reception gave us a warm welcome that helped to dispel the grim feeling of the day. We chose a pitch in the cul-de-sac area opposite the entrance which had spacious pitches with hedges to separate them, a nice feature that gave a feeling of privacy. We had a problem on our chosen pitch with no power from the supporting EHU. A quick word with the warden and a few minutes looking into the problem soon had it fixed. Thank you to warden John for his help with sorting this out. The site has a dramatic backdrop from the stone cliff-like feature which shows its original purpose as a quarry. Floodlight at night it gave a wonderful Spielberg like feature to the site. The shower/toilet block was immaculate with plenty of facilities but unfortunately it was rather cold inside for the first few days. This did improve towards the end of our stay when the benefits of the underfloor heating could be felt. It brightened up on our second day so we explored Buxton which is a great place to browse and travelling to any of the nearby towns such as Matlock, Bakewell or Castleton is quite a treat as the scenery is breathtaking. Well, it is when the clouds aren't down to the ground! There were quite a number of roads closed during the time of our visit including some of the main A roads so I would suggest checking your route out before traveling, particularly if towing. A nice site in a great location, looking forward to a summer visit.

Excellent Site, walks and pubs on the doorstep!

Lovely welcome, perfect large pitches. Beautiful and clean facilities. Walk thru' woods into Buxton about 25 mins, uphill on the way back tho, Boots recommended! Ate in The Duke, really nice fish & Chips. Redwillow in the centre was fab! (we thought much better then the other Brewery one) Has its own beers and brewery, had a few ales and some snacks, Pizza etc... and smashing people! Only explored on foot for a couple of nights, will be back! A map of the Park would be good so more walking from site could be easily found. Thanks! :-) :-)

All good!

Excellent site, well spaced out pitches - ours was very level so no need to use our ramps. The refurb has left the roads in excellent condition, well draining with no puddles. Shower block is excellent. Very very clean, warm and with everything one needs - lots of hooks and trays in the cubicles Staff were welcoming, very friendly and efficient. Great location. It's a half hour walk into Buxton, following an easy path downhill. Bit muddy in parts.

Superb site

Just spent 5 nights at this site. Fantastic facilities and location and all the better for the exceptional upgrade. If you wonder were your membership fee goes just visit Grin Low and see what’s been done, lovely pitches, easy access and superb toilet block. Wardens are very helpful, jolly hardworking and polite. Great shame some people do not respect the work they do. I visited the toilet block 5 mins after they finished cleaning only to find someone had just left a toilet in a foul state. But afraid that’s life.
