Why stay here ...

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.

Quick getaway...

We stayed here on their last weekend of being open. Half the site was closed off, perfect for us to walk our dog. Truly lovely well maintained site and facilities. Wardens very helpful. Great location for a walk in to Buxton. Shall be returning in the spring and summer months.

Autumn in Buxton

Excellent site if for walking and exploring this lovely area. Buxton Camp is, as expected, managed to the usual Caravan Club very high standard. Site staff dressed up the entrance for Halloween which looked super, especially as the sun went down, the lanterns glowed and owls hooted!

Yet Another Great Club Site

Just spent 3 nights at this site with the intention of cycling. Was not disappointed. Site itself is located within an old quarry which at first gave me some concern, however, all facilities were very good and the bonus being the ability to plug in a Arial to booster located on pitch and receive excellent TV reception. Wardens very helpful, toilet facilities clean and well kept. Great Site, will definitely revisit.

Report

Just spent a very pleasant week, the site is well cared for and with a few exceptions, very well spaced out. The wardens were very polite and helpful. There is a great walk through the country park into Buxton, with wildlife in abundance(perhaps not so good if you find wildlife a nuisance and noisey) but we enjoyed every minute of it and would recommend this site to anyone.
