Buxton CMC Site, Grin Low Road, Buxton, SK17 6UJ, Tel 0129877735

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.
