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.

Needs attention

We visit this site annually and usually give it 5 stars but on this occasion we felt standards had fallen. We arrived on Thursday and for the first time ever we felt the welcome was far below standard. It could have been a recorded message from a robot on the other side of the desk, it would have had more personality. If you meet this lady warden don't dare ask a question! You won't get a helpful answer and you soon realise you shouldn't ask again! As we were setting up we tethered the dog at the back of the pitch and Mr Jobsworth the warden knocked on the van door asking us to move it as the tether was allowing him to 'stray' onto the next (vacant) pitch. The site was muddy! It was a wet weekend to be fair, but the warden seemed to be clearing leaves as a priority rather than draining off standing water. A few shovels of gravel or similar added to the path from the middle of site to the back along the wall side would have improved things so much. Everyone commented on getting wet feet!!!. If you go on site in the darkness make sure you have a strong torch as the lighting is poor. Chatsworth is a lovely site and deserves better. As we left on the Sunday morning at 9:30 we had difficulty with vehicles at the sports club (entrance to site). They were parked all over the kerbs and filled the passing place near the entrance causing us to pass very carefully with only a few inches to spare. This needs to be sorted.

Great location.

Visited this site many times over the years, it’s situation in the walked garden is wonderful a small door in he wall allows access to the Chatsworth estate. Τhere is a modern facilities block which has laundry, and dishwashing area. There is also a dog wash on site, which unfortunately had a massive leak in the hose which rather than spraying from the shower head actually resulted in soaking me This pitches are in dire need of some attention, With the exception of the service pitches, the hardstsndings require some serious maintenance, the vast majority are so muddy, they need to be excaved and re gravelled. For a flagship site charging flagship prices, this is not up to standard.

Fabulous Autumn stay

As usual this site never disappoints. On top of a fabulous location, beautiful countryside and not a bad pub a short walk away, the wardens are at the top of their game, the site is immaculate and the fellow caravannars present for Halloween were spooktacular!

Another great visit

We’ve just got back from another great stay, we love that you get your own key to the special gate to go into the grounds of Chatsworth, the only slight problem we had with the key (pitch 14), was that we had a problem unlocking the door from the the side of the estate grounds, we had no problem unlocking/locking from the site side of the gate or locking from the Estate ground side, hubby told one of the wardens about the problem with the key & was told you need to put the key in gentle & lift the key to which we did but still had a problem unlocking from the estate side of the gate, for the first few days we were with another couple who also stayed on site in their caravan even they had trouble opening the gate with our key, but when using their own key there was no problem unlocking, this is the first time we have had an issue with the key, all the other times we have stayed we have never had this problem, maybe it needs looking into, would be interesting to know whether anybody else has ever had the same issue with the key for pitch 14, other than the issue with the key a fantastic time was had.

Brilliant.

We have just returned from a long weekend, the site management are very professional, the weather was terrible but we just got on with enjoying ourselves.just one thing to mention you cannot get a discount for being a Caravan Club member when buying tickets for Chatsworth House or Gardens. Hope to return soon. Motorhomer from Lincolnshire.
