Staden Grange: Camping in the trees

General

  • Farmland and woodland site on the edge of the Peak District
  • On six acres of space two miles from Buxton
  • Petting zoo open on site in high season

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

Family-run Staden Grange looks over open fields with Peak District views in all directions and is a two-mile potter or five-minute drive from elevated spa town Buxton as well as a piffling 10 to 11-mile drive from famed historical homes at Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

Kids will be stoked with the petting zoo at Staden, open in high season and run by the friendly folks at Archie’s Farm (on site but not connected with Staden Grange), 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 toilets and coin-operated showers.

A little gem - not to be overlooked!!22/06/2021

    The site owner was very welcoming and rather than handing you a site map took the time to show you where everything was.

    We loved that cars were not parked on the site.
    You were allowed to have the car whilst you pitched up and packed away but otherwise there was a large parking zone. This kept us at ease with the children as cars were not coming and going all day everyday.

    The site was well maintained and the toilet and shower facilities were excellent. The hot showers were welcomed.

    The location and setting was lovely. We didn’t know what to expect when we were directed through what I can only describe as an industrial estate but there was no need to worry once we arrived at Staden. We couldn’t believe how pretty the site was and camping amongst the tall trees was fantastic.

    Its proximity to Buxton centre was great we chose to walk and only took us approx. 20mins and even our 4yr old coped with it as mainly down hill on the way there but chose to get a taxi back and that was only £6 right to the doorstep.

    There was a play area on site, although the slide was damaged during our visit it was cordoned off for safety and it definitely didn’t dampen any of the children’s spirits.

    We travelled with 2 other families and their children and we all thoroughly enjoyed it the age range of the children was from 4yrs - 15yrs. With their cricket set, footballs and other bits they had a great time and plenty of space to have fun.

    We look forward to visiting again, only this time we’ll be staying longer. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Great location, very close to Buxton. Toilets well kept and very clean. Very friendly staff. Quite a small site so never felt too crowded. A lot of trees which gave the site a more natural feel rather than a man made open space. Very covid safe.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing we disliked, due to the amount of trees your car and tent will need cleaning when you leave but is completely worth it.

  • Liked: 

    Booking system for showers because of Covid restrictions. Alternative loo available when showers booked.
    Felt very 'outdoors'- lots of lovely mature trees and views over the countryside.
    Helpful owner.
    Electric hookup - water tap in once place on the site - couldn't get our van to it.
    Taxi from Buxton shops was £8.50.

    Disliked: 

    I didn't dislike as such, but just so people are aware, there is a lumpy unmade road onto the camp site. We managed it no problem by taking it steady.
    It was very windy on the site - meaning by 9pm we were very cold outside.
    Need your waste trundler to get rid of grey water.

    Atmosphere, fairly quiet. The industrial estate was no problem. Under a tree canopy, so fairs well in hot weather.

    Disliked: 

    Pot holed approach!
    After majority had left on the Sunday, the loos were left dirty and no toilet paper was provided. The spare toilet was filthy, with flys buzzing about. Not enough loos for the size of the campsite, only 2 showers but could not enter either facility's if someone else in (due to Covid)
    Once the extras (electric/dogs etc ) had been added on, I thought it was a bit dear for what you got in return.

Local attractions

A couple of miles’ stroll through the Derbyshire countryside will take Staden Grange guests to Buxton, the highest market town in England.

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 is meant by stone poached eggs when you see them... More caverns, caving, potholing 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).
