Why stay here ...

Set in the beautiful location of an old walled garden on the picturesque Chatsworth Estate, the Chatsworth Park Club Site in Bakewell offers nostalgic views of the sheep-cropped rolling countryside, with some lovely walks. One of our sites in Derbyshire, 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 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 1000-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.

Last Minute Booking

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
First visit here for some time but nothing really changed still as lovely. As has been mentioned before you eirher love or hate this site! The main attraction is Chatsworth House and Estate really so easily accessible from the site, with your own key ,such a lovely place to visit. Great for dogs have to be on leads on the estate ( saw some that weren’t) The Autumn colours are stunning at the moment, deer a plenty too. Lots of other interesting places to visit within a short drive, Monsall Trail and Viaduct, Ashford in the Water, Bakewell etc etc! Worth a visit to Chatsworth Farm Shop and Garden Centre, but pricey!Well stocked site shop with helpful friendly wardens who keep site very tidy. Pitches are quite close together the outer ones seem a little better not overlooked just as bad, we thought the pitches 62-71 looked some of the nicest no grass to speak of though but not just under the trees (of which there are plenty) as much. But its up to individual choice not all suit everyone! First time on a club site and we were told to park between the two pegs( white or blue) not corner of caravan up to peg. Absolutely no point in arriving before 1pm you wont get in and no where to park. Lay-by locations are given on the site website depending on which direction you are travelling from. Great site well worth a visit I know it gets booked early but we only booked this last week and managed five nights so well worth to keep checking!

Another excellent visit

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
One of our nearest sites and, although only 20 miles from home, we take the caravan as often as we can and have just spent nine nights here. The wardens are so friendly and have upped their game. Brightened up the outside of the office with coloured lights. There is now on site pizza van twice a week and a fish and chip van once a week (yes we tried them both and excellent). The revised check in is much speedier so less of a long queue on the access road which was a pain and the source of much discontent in the past. They now take your name, give you a map, tell you to find a pitch then go back to the office to pay once you've done that. I had advocated this a few years ago and it really cuts down the queue. They're much more laid back than the previous wardens with a number of pitches having more than one vehicle on them as most pitches have plenty of room for this. Only thing missing - they once were able to order newspapers but this stopped and I'd like to see it introduced again but it won't stop us going and we already have lots of visits booked for 2022!

There's Great, Good and Querky!!

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Fabulous location, friendly wardens, immaculate facilities, best stocked shop ever and level pitches what more could you ask for? I can see why this site is so popular. The local wildlife made for an interesting 2 weeks in October, the deer rut was in full flow and the sound of the rutting stags could be heard 24/7, the ducks of which there are loads and appear to be resident are quacking rather like laughing hyenas and the local population of crows or rooks (couldn’t decide which) roost very nearby, squabbling over the best branch to perch on and then calling every morning as soon as day breaks. They must also spend a great deal of time in the site trees because our awning, car and van were covered in mess. Combined with the constant turnaround of caravans and motorhomes I cannot honestly say that I found it a peaceful site but it was never dull! The site is all hard-standings with not a lot of green areas. There are a lot of overhanging trees which is great if you want shade in hot weather but not so good when it’s raining and the constant drip, drip is like torture. I suppose it depends on the time of year, but when we were there the leaves were still on the trees, the days were getting shorter and there was not a lot of autumn sunshine so it was a bit on the dark side. I would imagine that this site is completely different depending on the time of year that you visit. Most importantly be aware that you cannot gain access to the site before 1pm as they put a chain across the entrance and there is nowhere to wait so take heed and do not arrive before time. (I wondered why they told you the location of lay-bys nearby – now I know). This also means that leaving the site between 12.50 and 2pm is impossible as there is a never-ending stream of incoming traffic. Sunday is apparently one of their busiest days with up to 80 units coming and going. They are obviously used to the high turn around and are very efficient at getting you to find your pitch prior to returning to the office to do the paperwork and get your gate key for the ‘secret gate’ into the park. Having said all that YES we will definitely return it is a lovely part of the country, and there is still a lot more to explore and I am now a convert to Bakewell Pudding!

Lovely and peaceful site set within the beautiful grounds of the Chatsworth Estate (definitely not Shameless!) Pitches are level and well-ordered, staff are pleasant and helpful. Will definitely return.
