 Med to large delightful peak district camc site with mostly large hardstandings but many lightly sloping.

Quarry location with plenty of greenery with nice layout.

One large brand new facilities block though two smaller ones would be easier to get to from site extremities.

Check in painfully slow but wardens pleasant.

Good site ambiance and not noisy.

Drainage seems good.

30 min downhill walk from Buxton (£6 taxi return available).

Great short and medium walks from site.

Recycling but no glass separation.

MH service point excellent.

Access road fine as are directions.

WiFi useless

Mobile average.

No playground but kids seem to have a good time.

 The site is on an old quarry so you’re surrounded nearly on all sides by rock or trees so WiFi and tv satellite reception can be tricky. We pitched over to the left bottom corner and managed to get both luckily.

The site is clean and well managed, the walk into Buxton took around half an hour through the forest. About 2 thirds of the way into Buxton there is a nice cafe at the Go Ape complex, a handy rest stop before the climb back up to the campsite!

The folly is worth a visit, just follow the route through the car park opposite the site. We used the taxi company that has a deal set up through the campsite for a discounted fare to/from Buxton, which worked very well but don’t use them to go to Leek as they charged us £30 one way, for just a car, and a local Leek taxi company only charged £20 for the return journey.

Leek is very nice and worth a visit.

The weather wasn’t really on our side but there are plenty of walks nearby and look out for the eagle which fishes in the fenced off water adjacent to the site.

 Love this site. Set in a quarry in a country park a short walk through woods to Buxton.

Facilities are without doubt the best yet. Had a pop up pizza stall there too.

Highly recommended.

 Great site, lovely location for walking. Friendly helpful wardens, very well run, clean and tidy.

Lovely little touches around the site that fitted in with the surroundings.

Very calm and peaceful

 Located in an old limestone quarry, very tranquil. An easy 20 minute walk into town. Buxton is an excellent town to explore.

Shaun and the wardens take great pride in keeping the site in optimum condition. They are eager to please and socialise to make your stay as enjoyable as they can.

Facilities are kept spotless to meet your needs.

Can't fault it.

 We thought that the campsite was very organised as regarding the COVID situation.

It was our first break and it all seemed to work well with no problems

Apart from the weather being very disappointing.

We were disappointed about the fact we couldn’t really cycle comfortably

From the site, the nearest cycle route was about 6 miles away.

 Excellent, clean and welcoming site.

Facilities block is second to none with lovely warm showers.

Buxton is a 30 min walk down through the woods.

Good pub close to the site (The Duke) which serves good food and beers.

 To Find Site:- From Buxton take A53 toward Leek. After passing A54 (Macclesfield Road) take next left signed for Grin Low Country Park. In about a 100 metres turn left and follow road around to site. Coming down the hill towards the Grin Low Country Park, cross the cattle grid and the site entrance is on the left.

This campsite has a rather spectacular setting in an old quarry in the Grin Low Country Park on the outskirts of Buxton. The site is open from mid-March to early November and non-members are accepted. In total there are 127 pitches all but the five tent pitches are on hardstandings of which 22 are serviced pitches fresh water supply and grey waste disposal.

Electric points are convenient to all pitches, they are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. The bollards also have a TV co-ax connection which is free to use but you have to supply your own cable. There are three service points around the site leaving some pitches a bit far from water and waste disposal.

There is a spacious motorhome service point with an open grill dump point. The central toilet block is of a nice quality and of sufficient size to cope with the size of the site but again some way from the furthest pitches. Within the block is a covered dishwash area and a laundry. Reception sells a few essentials and next door is an information room.

There are no play facilities for children. There is site wide WiFi at available extra cost. Mobile phone signal is very limited on this site, if making a call it might be worth walking up to the area near reception.

Although close to Buxton there are no convenient public transport links from near the site. The site has made arrangements with a local taxi firm for a fixed, reasonably priced, fare either in the town or back to the site. If you are able, probably the nicest way into Buxton is the walk via the Grin Low Country Park, after an initial climb it is all downhill.

The first part takes you down to Poole’s Cavern where there is a café and toilets. The final part of the walk is through very gentrified Buxton Streets, initially to Pavilion Gardens and then into the centre. The town is famous for its Spa and taking the waters. The Crescent is currently undergoing restoration.

There is a good range of shops in the town including a handy Waitrose. Larger supermarkets are a little further out.

 This is probably the best Caravan & Motorhome club site we have visited. Pitches are large and level with the added addition of a TV point for each pitch.

The toilet block is the best we've seen having 9 showers in both ladies and gents. This site was nearly full every night we were there and never had a problem getting a shower in the morning.

Staff were lovely and helpful.

Nice walk around the quarry which the site is in. Buxton and Bakewll are both worth a visit and there are plenty of other attractions to visit even on a wet day.

 A lovely peaceful site. Large level pitch. We were on a cul-de-sac road with only 7 caravans on. So not much traffic passing. Staff very friendly. Toilet blocks immaculate at all times. This site is in a country park and the caravan site drops down so signal for phone was quite poor at times with being in a quarry. Some lovely places to visit Bakewell, Ashbourne and Chesterfield. Buxton us ok too. W We went to The Railway Inn for tea 1 night. Lovely food. The Harpurs bar chippy sells fantastic tasting food. Nice having the country park for dog walking. Next time we visit I would love to come is in summer with all the trees in bloom.
