    Lime Tree Holiday Park, Buxton, Derbyshire

    Site Address: Lime Tree Holiday Park, Duke’s Drive, Buxton, Derbyshire. SK17 9RP.
    Telephone: +44 (0)1298 22988

    Price Guide: £28 for hard standing with electricity

    Date of Visit:
    July 2017

    We visited this site with our son and family. The approach road is quite narrow, large vehicles struggle to pass each other in places and the pavement is only narrow for the walk into Buxton which takes around 20 minutes.

    We were made very welcome by the staff who seemed friendly and eager to please, we had a hard standing pitch and they put our son and his tent next to us on grass, which was really good. The site is split into two different areas with hard standings and electric hook ups at one end of the site and non electric grass pitches at the other end, both pitching areas are on a hill and if you aren't very agile it is a steep hike. The toilets are kept very clean and the showers and hot water are free. There is a games room and laundry in the reception buildings with a toilet block at the back and another toilet block on the other pitching area.

    There is a campervan corner where campervans and small motorhomes can pitch without electricity but we thought it was a bit dark and sheltered in there with overhanging trees. The main tent pitching area is on top of the hill with good views of the surrounding area and is very open and sunny, pitches are not marked and its first come first served but it is a vast field so you shouldn't be disappointed.

    Buxton is a short (20 minute) walk, with lots of pubs, restaurants etc., we can recommend the Mexican Restaurant called Lone Star which served excellent food, large portions and good value. The walk to Buxton from the campsite is along a fairly narrow road with a small pavement so care should be taken especially if you have children with you, there is only room for single file on the pavement.

    There is a Morrison's supermarket with a petrol station around a ten minute walk or 2 minute drive.

    On the negative side we thought camping it was expensive, we paid £28 per night for hard standing and electric, we probably wouldn't want to go again as the Caravan and Motorhome Club site would have been cheaper but if you aren't on a budget it is a nice site with very friendly staff.
