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. 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.

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.

Helpful Staff

Written to thank the staff members. As we have found on Club sites, friendly, approachable and helpful. Specific thanks to one gentleman (should have got name) who assisted this numpty with an EHU issue. Had no power to sockets after hooking up. Nothing showing on my plug tester. Another gentleman visitor checked my hook up connection to no avail. I went to Reception and saw a gentleman staff member there who said he would bring along a tester. All tested fine with power going into the motor home and so guess what - the main fuse trip switch had been left 'off' after a recent dealer visit! BP back to normal. Accepted the stare from my wife with good grace. Enjoyed 4 very pleasant nights there.

Delightful

Lovely site - small but really well laid out so that plenty of pitches can fit. The facilities were great. The location is fantastic - once you have arrived - the track from the road is long and a bit windy.

A great place for walkers

First time at the Chatsworth site and we'll be back! The site wardens were lovely and friendly and the site was well maintained. Lots of ducks and pheasant wandering around but they didn't see to make any mess. The site is set inside tall walls with a gate through to the Chatsworth estate. We are keen walkers so printed off some routes of the area before we went from the Peak District website. There are a couple of pubs in walking distance and we went in the Rowleys village pub at Baslow. Very friendly pub and dogs are allowed inside.

first time visitor

bought new caravan from robinsons at chesterfield(who are a pleasure to deal with by the way 10/10 customer service) so decided to try out our new outfit here.arrived on site around 7pm single track but no bother driving up it.stayed for 3 nights on serviced pitch everything about this site from location facilities and especially the staff are first class will defo be coming back here in the summer when hopefully it wont be raining. * must mention the lowlife who decided to steal some shower caddys from the gents WC as well as a thief you must be brain damaged as well, the cost of replacing the items will come out of the membership fees that all of us and you have paid so work that one out*
