About the park

Grin Low is a popular country park close to Poole's Cavern. 

At its centre is Buxton Caravan and Motorhome Club (opens in a new window) − a large popular caravan site open from Easter until October − attracting around 48,000 overnight stays/person nights per year.

Solomon's Temple, a tower built in 1896, provides a fantastic viewpoint of the surrounding countryside and there are also woodland walks, open grassland, a picnic site, car park and public toilets.

Snapshot surveys suggest around 19,900 vehicles use the car park per year and the park also attracts many visitors on foot.

What's available

We have a room to let inside a building in the car park. The building currently houses an office and the toilet block. The room measures around 14 square metres, has water, light and power and a window overlooking the car park area which could easily be adapted to be a serving space.

The space would be let by competitive tender for a period of three years − with the potential for a one year extension − and subject to a commercial licence. The successful licensee would be responsible for fitting out the room. The potential to operate from a mobile unit would also be considered.
