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.

Lovely Site

Superb location, stayed here with our two dogs for two nights recently, enjoyed the trails through the woods to Buxton town and the haul up the hill to Solomon's temple, well worth it for the breathtaking view from the top of the tower! Good, clean on site facilities, all COVID prevention measures in place. Will be going back next year, hopefully when the weather is a little drier!

A beautifully situated gem.

The quarry provides a lovely setting, and the general location is excellent for accessing Buxton (by foot) and many great walks in the surrounding moorland. Newly refurbished, the facilities are excellent. As ever, site staff are great. Covid restrictions were in place but worked well so long as visits to the shower block were made outside of peak times. Definitely one of C&MCs all round best sites. 4 nights October 2020.

Warm welcome and great site

This was our very first 3 night trip in a hired motorhome, so we had nothing to compare it with. The welcome from the owners was very warm and informative. No question was a silly question and it did give me confidence that we would be able to pitch up and then find everything we needed, which we did. I thought we would only use the facilities in our motorhome but the toilet and shower block were spacious and spotless so we did use them during our stay. The site is very well maintained in all areas and the pitches are well set out in my opinion. We had a few different walks in and out of Buxton which was just under 2 miles away. The scenery was really beautiful.

Beautiful setting

Saw this site during a walk many moons ago and always wanted to stay here and it didn't disappoint. Really helpful and friendly wardens as per usual, clean and some lovely quirky ideas including bug houses, all 5*, an 007 caravan and flowerpot men. Gave me some ideas for my garden! Easy dog walking for both short wee walks and longer marathons, and of course easy access to the lovely Peak District. Went to the Cheese Shop at Hartington as usual - fabulous produce there - and walked through Wolfcote and Beresford Dales. Despite some not so good weather we had a great time. Just wish you could have 2 rows of bands - one for the toilets and one for the showers as we have seen on other sites. Do use on board facilities now but just occasionally handy to get across to the loo! Thoroughly recommend it - though not much here for children which is really good for us, unless they like walking and visiting.

COVID arm bands for facilities

Recently visited Buxton site and on the whole we loved it , but was so frustrated and annoyed with people not taking the right armbands off the pegs , went to get mine twice and it had gone and my husband had his taken twice . They have your pitch number on them so I don’t know why it’s not working . Also people just leaving them on the hooks when only four allowed in so you can be waiting outside for ages when only one or two people in .I don’t think it’s very good infection control , sorry .
