General

  • Farmland and woodland site on the edge of the Peak District
  • Two miles from Buxton
  • Petting zoo on site

Pitching up among the trees on six acres of farmland and woodland on the edge of the Peak District and the Derbyshire Dales… sounds pretty topping to us.

Family-run Staden Grange looks over open fields with Peak District panoramas in all directions and is a two-mile potter or five-minute drive from elevated spa town Buxton as well as a piffling ten to 11-mile drive from famed historical homes at Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

Kids will be stoked with the petting zoo at Staden, run by the friendly folks at Archie’s Farm (on site but not connected with the campsite), where they can make friends with Archie the eponymous donkey and Miniature Mediterranean pal Dinky, Alice the alpaca, Buttons the pygmy goat, rabbits, ducks and guinea pigs.

Facilities on site include a heated amenities block with loos and coin-operated showers.

Please note

Please note that as the site is in a wooded area, it will be necessary to close the site in extreme weather conditions (wind speed in excess of 40mph). We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible if this happens.

Please note that the showers are coin-operated, with £1 buying 6 minutes, or 20p for 1 minute.

Relitively cheap holiday with an awesome location. 16/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Really beautiful location, within 2 miles of Buxton but still a real outdoor, countryside atmosphere. It was very quiet and peaceful due to the size of the site.
    Toilets/showers, although were limited, were kept clean and warm.
    There was a petting zoo which we could see from over the fence but it was only open 3 days per week (Fri-Sun) so perfect if you stayed the weekend, however we did not.
    The host was very welcoming and the site staff- who were not seen often- did their job well and quickly sorted problems.

    Disliked: 

    The amount of showers and toilets was disappointing as there was only 2 of each per sex. Luckily, we went at a relatively quiet time, however this may be very difficult in the heights of summer!
    There was a no open fires rule which is understandable as it is a wooded area, however, I doubt the cooking facilities would withstand if there was any more than 5 families wanting to cook on site.
    Also, wifi is not available to campers!

    Actual pitch site, lovely area between the trees. Clean and modern shower/toilet block, welcoming staff.

    Disliked: 

    View of and smell from the industrial estate. Not their fault at all but it's such a shame for such a lovely campsite ambiance to be marred by such ugly buildings.

    The site is beautiful, amazing views and very clean. Showers and toilets immaculate, i was looking for a relaxing break and that is exactly what i got only a couple of miles outside of buxton and a pleasant enough walk if not wanting to drive. Would definitely stay again.

  • Liked: 

    The grounds where pleasant and peaceful
    The hygiene facilities was acceptable.

    Disliked: 

    When ordering the holiday via pitch up site online. Something went wrong. I entered information for 2 people, with 2 small one man tents. We were travelling by bicycle. Your option, didnt allow for bicycle touring. We was stated as being entitled to a 7m pitch length. Our tents fitted easily within the allocated space. We was initially quoted £14 with a payable deposit of £2 something. You can imagine our surprise when arriving at the site, to be then told we had more than the remaining balance of £14 to pay. We ended up paying £10 each for one night. Plus you had to pay for a hot shower.

Directions


We are 2 miles from the centre of Buxton just off the A515 Buxton to Ashbourne Road.

Driving from Buxton, turn left onto Staden Lane (signposted) and then drive 200 yards over a small railway bridge and turn immediately right, following the signs for Staden Grange. Follow this unmade road between fields for about a quarter of a mile and you will find the campsite on the left-hand side.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

A couple of miles’ stroll through the Derbyshire countryside will take Staden Grange guests to Buxton, the highest market town in England and named as one of the top three most attractive towns in the land in 2013.

Have a full day or a couple of afternoons here, finishing off with a ramble and a rest at the Pavilion Gardens, 23 acres of listed greenery strolled and lazed upon by visitors to Buxton since Victorian times. A miniature train, activity park, play area and toddlers’ area have been set up in the gardens for smaller visitors, and the Buxton tourist information centre is in the gardens for info on Buxton and the Peak District.

In town, snap pics of the Georgian architecture (Buxton has been described as the most complete Regency town in Britain) and wander along the shops of the old Cavendish Arcade set in Buxton’s original thermal baths before hanging around into the evening to catch a performance at Buxton Opera House or the Pavilion Arts Centre. The history of these and more are at the Buxton Museum and Art Gallery on Terrace Road, open Tuesday to Sunday with free admission.

Just outside Buxton, the limestone caverns and stone poached eggs of Poole’s Cavern are a big pull for visitors; you’ll see what we mean by stone poached eggs when you see them...

More caverns, caving, pot holing and various other stone-based adventures abound in the Peak District National Park a few minutes’ drive from Buxton, where additionally there are acres of rocks to scale for those who prefer their adventuring above ground.

Nearby at Castleton in the High Peak, four show caves open to visitors include Blue John’s Cavern, along with nearby Treak Cliff Cavern the only place in the country to find the semi-precious mineral Blue John (the cavern was also visited by the strange pair in the fab film Sightseers). Above ground, do the four mile circular walk from Castleton along to Speedwell Cavern or trek from Castleton to Hollins Cross, Mam Tor and Cavedale.

The Goyt, Manifold and Dovedale valleys are also nearby to access cycling, fishing, sailing and the Manifold Valley walking and cycling trail.

Dovedale, a National Nature Reserve and one of the most visited natural attractions in the country, has yet another cavern in Raynard’s Cave, which has artefacts displayed at Buxton Museum including Roman and Iron Age coins discovered in 2014.
