Loved this site, its situated in an old quarry on the outskirts of Buxton. This has everything that you'd expect from a CAM site, friendly helpful staff, all the services and well maintained grounds.

Just a short walk is Solomons Temple which from the top gives you a magnificent view of Buxton in the valley. Buxton is about a 30 minute walk down a good path through Grin Low woods which fetches you out at Pooles Cavern on the fringes of Town. A warning here though its a long climb back for those not used to walking uphill. The site has a deal with a local Cab company that fetches you back up for a fiver ( cab card from reception) Lovely Park with a lake and a large kids playground near the Opera house, plenty of pubs in town, loads of shops and numerous Charity shops if hunting books or a bargain is your thing. The Wye Bridge Inn (Wetherspoons) highly recommended just past the viaduct. Will be back, loved it.

Visited here for a weekend break. Site is nicely situated in a quarry and very quiet. Wardens as usual very polite and site is very well cared for. Toilets could do with an update and water pressure in the showers was poor but water was hot. Nice walk into Buxton through the woods which takes approx 25 mins, could be a bit difficult if you don't enjoy a walk but if you take it easy you will be fine. Will definitely use this site again. Phone and wi-fi signal was poor but whether this was due to our network I am not sure.

Had a lovely few days away at this site and will definitely be back in the future. The usual wardens were on holiday but the people covering their holiday were lovely and very friendly. Location of the site is also very good, nice and peaceful and a half hour walk into Buxton through some woodland. It is quite a strenuous route if you're not fit but if you take it slowly, there are a few seats to sit on, you'll be fine.

The showers look a bit dated but they're fine and there is plenty of hot water and a hair drier is available in the block. 3 sinks are available for washing up and there is a laundry room too.

As stated, phone reception was intermittent but it was nice to have a break from it. We used the hook up ariel facility and had plenty of channels.

Bakewell market is on Mondays and well worth a visit. Also well worth a visit is Cromford, just the other side of Matlock. It has the Arkwright mills and a lovely walk along the canal.

Site is very pleasant. It is well laid out and picturesque. Set in an old quarry I expected it to be less windy but that just may be being naive. The road in to the park is well kept. The surrounding parkland is stunning and there are great walks from the site.

The actual entrance of the site is not the most picturesque I have experienced but well laid out and has space for late arrivals.

Staff as expected are friendly and helpful.

Although next to the tent area the play park is well positioned and adequate.

Toilets and showers are the usual high standard but water pressure is not great.

We had a lot of rain and the site coped well as it's hard standing. The grassed areas retained water and gets a little muddy. Steel pegs are a must.

I will definitely use this site again.

Wifi reception very poor as is the site system.

There had been a lot of rain before we visited and lots of pitches were out of action through flooding, Staff were working hard to put things right. The site is located in an old quarry with high sides all around and is very peaceful. The site is also quite remote if you need transport to get around. Buxton site was due to be refurbished soon after we left. It needed it because the toilets and showers block badly needed upgrading. TV reception is non existent here. Having said all that we enjoyed our stay here. Fortunately we had a car at our disposal so getting around was easy. The peak district scenery is stunning with lots of places to visit and on a clear day you can see for 30 miles easily. Buxton is worth a visit and has a fantastic gardens in the center and a very well known tea shop which was great for afternoon tea's.

Standard CC facilities, very clean and pleasant wardens. Pitches are of an ample size and largely very level and free draining.

The only 'issues' there are is it is in an old quarry so mobile phone signal is largely non existent and TV is very patchy although there are TV pints on the EHU points. There was an issue of the electricity feed to the TV boosters failing at around 9pm each night, this was apparently due to the amount of people using kettles/TVs/heating which was slightly annoying.
