Why stay here ...

Set in the beautiful location of an old walled garden on the picturesque Chatsworth Estate, the Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site in Bakewell offers nostalgic views of the sheep-cropped rolling countryside, with some lovely walks. The caravan park is a lovely holiday retreat for the family to escape the bustle of city living. Surrounded by lots of wildlife, it is fantastic for deer watching.

The Horse Trials that take place in May and the Country Fair in September are just two of the fantastic attractions conveniently nearby the Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site. One of the first visits on the list should be to the House, where you can immerse yourself in history as you wander round the beautifully decorated rooms, formal gardens and the famously lovely cascade. Another place for an unforgettably scenic stroll is the 1,000-acre park laid out by Capability Brown. For those who want to sample and take home authentic country delights, the nearby farm shop boasts superior marmalades and jams amongst many other scrumptious treats. The village of Baslow is a 15 minute walk with a couple of good pubs, including the refurbished Devonshire Arms. Bakewell market on Mondays is recommended. Children visiting the caravan site will enjoy the farmyard and adventure playground, guaranteed to give them hours of fun.

Directions

Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, as this misdirects to Chatsworth House. From the East: Turn left off A619 (Chesterfield – Bakewell) in 8.5 miles in Baslow 150 yards past Cavendish Hotel into site entrance. The entrance to the site is by private single track road, with passing places (no parking or waiting allowed). There is no access through Chatsworth Estate. At the end of the entrance drive there may be a traffic bottleneck outside reception. From the West: from Manchester at junction 1 of the M60 take the A6 to Chapel-en-le-Frith and then the A623 to Baslow. At the roundabout go straight on towards Chesterfield but just after leaving the roundabout take the first turning on the right, just before the Cavendish Hotel. From Buxton take the A6 to Bakewell and then the A619 to Baslow. Then follow directions from the roundabout as above. The site has no Late Night Arrivals Area. Please note that the bridge at site entrance has 5-ton weight limit.

New Year break

Managed to get a last minute booking for 3 nights over New Year for our first stay at the Chatsworth site. Followed sat nav however it tried to take me down to Chatsworth House (sat nav pre programmed with all caravan club sites?), however I missed the turn and saw the correct one further down the road. Booked into the site but had to do two circuits I order to find a pitch which wasn't a problem as it gave me and idea of the site. Pitched on site 67, just left of the main gate and was expecting it to be noisey but it was completely the opposite, as was the whole site. Put my awning up but struggled to hammer in my steel,pegs with my usual rubber mallet, would certainly recommend taking a metal hammer. Lovely dog walks around Chatsworth Park accessible via the site side gate, however the site could benefit from a specific doggy wash down point, all be it I used the service point and a bucket, but was conscious of making a mess. Toilets and showers were spotless and there was plenty of hot water. Staff were great and laid on drinks and nibbles on New Year's Eve. Dog friendly pubs within easy walking distance as is the local shop. Will certainly go back.

GREAT TIME AWAY

We decided to visit over Christmas been before so Did know this time not to follow directions for Chatsworth. If only site could put sign on roundabout before site it would save a lot of errors also the caravan club sat nav appproch wrong also sends you pasted entrance not sure why Anyway site organisation by wardens on checking in Brilliant and friendly. Site clean and tidy. Good atmosphere units dressed up for Christmas. We attended the reception invitation for nibbles And wine well attended and very welcome treat By wardens . A must is the walk though chatsworth to Baslow if you have dogs then Devonshire ARms friendly and good atmosphere Small village shop up hill has everything The secret gate is a bonus where can you have this beautiful entrance to the best stately home in England. Although you pay in the site fees it's a bit pricey I thought and discussed with others on site all seem to agree. That said would return just great location, wardens, facilities and location

Christmas at chatsworth

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at a much improved chatsworth, we were there in November and it was looking very neglected,but with a change of wardens it looks like they are brining back to the premier site it used to be !!! The wardens put on a drink and nibbles on Christmas Eve which we thought was a nice touch , so thank you Helen and Pete ,Michelle and Angus and a very happy new year to you all xx

Christmas Visit

I think I have lost count of the times we have stayed at the Chatsworth site over the years but it retains a fondness for us. In recent years these visits have tended to be in December so that we can visit the Christmas Decorations at Chatsworth House. (shame the is no discount available via the Clubs) The site is set up for all year round stays as it has all hardstandings. The facility block is excellent. The WiFi was a bit intermittent but fortunately mobile phones seem to work on the site. The House is and easy walk from the site, via the secret gate, as is the village of Baslow with several restaurants and a cafe. For those wanting to explore further afield there seems to be a good selection of bus services, especially to Chesterfield and Bakewell.
