Why stay here ...

Buxton Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Back Again!

Buxton Club Campsite
This is a great site in a most unusual location, at the base of a former quarry. Everything on the site is well maintained and the whole place is very welcoming. We were very pleased that it was so quiet and peaceful, which was just what we needed that weekend. Thank you Buxton staff.

Perfect for what we wanted

Buxton Club Campsite
Having now visited this site for many years it is exactly what we wanted as we needed to get away. This site was conveniently located and if you're prepared to do a little walking there is plenty to see and do. The woodland walk into town is around 25-35 minutes down hill (slightly longer back) with a refreshing stop at the Pooles Cavern coffee shop. If you're into cycling, you need to be fit, but the site offers many access points for road and mountain bike routes. Whilst phone signal is poor (that's a good thing) the TV from within the van worked fine without the need to connect to the pillar (just need to point the aerial in the right direction) The site was extremely well maintained and the facilities were second to none. On the upside (depending on your point of view) there are no children play areas. That said if your into kite flying the walk up to Solomon's Temple would provide some excellent opportunities. We were there during lambing so dogs need to be well controlled up the hills but can run amok in the woods. The evening and dawn chorus of jackdaws nesting in the quarry make a pleasant change to the hustle and bustle of daily life. The quarry wall is illuminated and well worth just siting out and chilling in the evening. Having read one of the less positive reviews, you need to do your homework when visiting any site, if you do then you will not be disappointed when visiting this site as it is well worth it. JayTea

Superb Stay here!

Buxton Club Campsite
Quality, cleanliness, pitch size, amenities all absolutely top class! We have just arrived home from a fabulous week at this site and cannot fault it in any way. We loved the staff (Kristian etc.) who were all so cheerful and friendly, showing that they love their work. The most recent project is to be a 'Fairy garden' we were informed, can't wait to see it next time! The shop, though tiny, is very well stocked and sells Bakewell Bakery scones and flat bread to die for!!!! The Fish & Chip van calls ( and they are yummy!) and it does currys on a separate night. The area has beautiful walks and breath-taking views. The walk into Buxton itself is lovely and the town beautiful, especially the park area. We are so glad to have found this site and will be back again just as soon as we are able. Well done guys...10 stars at least.

Great location

Buxton Club Campsite
This a really lovely site in a great location for Buxton and lots of great walking in the area. Spotlessly clean shower block with very friendly wardens who work really hard. Dog walking straight from the site into the Buxton Country park. A fantastic selection of baked goods in the shop too! We will be back

Beautiful site

Buxton Club Campsite
Stayed at the site for two nights, mid week. Staff were helpful, polite and obviously cared about the site. The facilities were spotless and everything was open. The shop stocked a good range of fresh food and there was a curry van that night (Thursday). We cycled from the site and enjoyed two days of wonderful routes. It was quite difficult to get to the quieter areas as there are no ‘cycle friendly’ lanes on the main road from the site, which was very busy with large lorries. However this did not detract from the excellent cycling we found. Our only disappointment, again, was the club WiFi - poor speed, difficult to get on to and generally very poor! As this site has limited phone coverage on some networks a good WiFi connection is important! To finish, the quarry that the site is nestled in is lit up at night and gives a lovely ambiance - sitting out in warmer weather would be a joy! The site is well worth a visit!
