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.

Peaceful with varied walking opportunities

Stayed on site for 3 nights. Very good quiet site with good level pitches well spaced. Phone and tv signal problematic as the site is hidden in a quarry although there is a tv aerial hook up on the pitch. First class shower and toilet block. Large showers behind door with curtained off changing area with bench and plenty of hooks. Pleasant walk from the site entrance up to the hill to Solomon's temple and from there you can walk down through the woods to the edge of Buxton, although it maybe a pull up the hill on the return. There are walks which can start at the site and head off into the moors.

Excellent site but disappointed about the tree and bush hacking that has taken place

We have been coming here since it first opened and seen the trees and bushes mature. Now they've reburbished it and chopped down a lot of the trees and bushes making it look a bit barren again. These bushes were a haven for birds so it's such a shame. The loo block is lovely and very clean. The bushes made the pitches at the south end very private but now you are seen from everywhere.

Well maintained, quiet site

We spent five days at this site and could not find any faults, lovely spacious pitches, clean facilities and site. Ideally, located for walking into Buxton and other local towns. It was a peaceful site, possibly due to it not having a playground, but that suited our needs.

Excellent refurbished site.

Lovely site. Spacious pitches which are very easy to get on and off! No mud even though it was rather wet when we were there. Lovely walks. Great for dogs. Friendly team. Can't think of a negative apart from may not be so good for children. We only had a short break but hope to return.

A Great place for a break

The site has had a full refurbish and is a brand new site. The pitches are all nicely laid out with plenty of space. The site is situated in a quarry with Buxton country park right next door, great for walking especially if you have a dog, you can walk into Buxton, but it is uphill back. There is some great walking in the area and is a good place for relaxing holiday. If you do not use the site WiFi you can really get away from the outside world as there is no mobile signal. TV signal is limited we did get a few channels, but there is the option to connect to the aerial booster system if you want to have TV. We will definately be back again in the future
