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 setting

We have visited this site a few times but not since the refurbishment. It was ok before but now looks stunning. The wardens should be congratulated for a beautiful, clean and well kept site. Nice big pitches, mostly level and after the refurb have additional fully serviced pitches. The toilet block is a pleasure to use. We loved the addition of the little nature areas, bug houses and a bug caravan, someone has made a real effort with them. My only problem was no phone signal ( on 3) unless i went up the hill, but my husband had one so all was not lost. Lots of areas to explore, Pooles Cavern and the Go Ape for the kids. A pleasant walk down into Buxton but quite a hard walk back but a local taxi firm have a good rate for a trip back if your legs can't manage it. The wardens were efficient and very pleasant. We will gladly return.

Gem of a site

Great site, great location. Ideal for exploring local areas. Hard standing is very hard needing good quality rock pegs. Some pitches require levelling equipment.

One of our favourites

Not our first visit, but first since refurb. It's gone up several notches. Beautiful location, sitting cosily in the old quarry. Facilities are excellent and one really feels spoiled by the general condition of the place. Really well-situated for Buxton and activities in the Peak District. An absolute gem of a site.

Perfection!!!!

First time at the site and wont be the last! Beautiful setting and well protected from wind, the site is immaculate and very well set out, toilet facilities, laundry etc are fantastic and very clean. Plenty of walks around the site but bikes are not allowed so if you wanted to cycle you'd need to head out on the road.Fish and chip van on a Saturday was really good, plenty fish. Lots to do in the area, 40 mins from Alton Towers and Heights of Abrahm at Matlock Bath is a great day out and there is Go Ape, Pooles cavern and Karting all close to the site. The wardens are the best I've ever encountered in my 10 years with the Club and made our stay perfect. We stayed for 14 nights and I still can't fault anything.

Great Site and Wardens. Rude & Poor chip van

The site is great and so are the site staff. One of the best sites we have been on. Very clean. But! The fish and chip van on a Saturday is poor. No Fish so it's a chip van that's it. Want anything else on the menu they don't have it. He was rude to a number of other members and his attitude stinks. Need a new van to come. Avoid the male chauvinist narcissist chip and no fish van.
