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.

Great fr a winter break

The Chatsworth site is an excellent location for a winter break. It has direct access to Chatsworth park which provides gentle walking and from Baslow (20 minutes walking from the site) you have access to the the moors for those who want something a bit more challenging.

A great all year site!

We visit Chatsworth site every January - it's a lovely time of year to experience the wonderful grounds of Chatworth with so few visitors around. The site and staff are superb - facilities are excellent (we'd recommend the super pitches) and the welcome is warm and friendly. There's plenty to do nearby with Chatsworth, the Farm Shop and Bakewell all in close proximity. Thornbridge Brewery is to be recommended for beer lovers out there!

New Year 2018

Stayed at the Chatsworth site for the 3rd time between xmas and just after the New Year. Greeted by very friendly wardens on the restricted lane approaching the site. Do not arrive before 1 pm- you have been advised and you won't get on before then. This is due to the narrow lane access and NOT due to the wardens. There is a small hump backed bridge on approach to entrance which is deceptively steep on one side but okay at slow speed (should do so anyway). Site had 6 pitches left to choose from (shows how popular the site is) and we had one nr toilet block. No problems with pitch or TV reception. Site is well maintained and toilet facilities always clean and warm, one of the delights of this site. My only gripe is that the club in general needs to sort out its recycling facilities. They are often in poorly lit areas, as is this one, and no good when I take the waste/wine bottles before retiring for the night. No particular provision for wine bottles- a crate or designated glass bin would be good. Having said that, the refuse area was well maintained and clean. Shower curtains are washed and ironed weekly and its clear to see how much pride and effort the wardens take in maintaining this site. Guests were invited to nibbles and drinks on Sat 29th and we were sorry we had made alternative plans, otherwise we would have popped in to say hello. Its a shame to see that newspapers can't be ordered anymore due to supplier retirement, its quite a walk or a drive off site to the nearest convenience shop in Baslow (quite a good one though). Generally, be prepared to walk to get anywhere but Chatsworth is a 'must' and can be accessed through the back 'door' of the site. Bakewell, Chesterfield and Sheffield plus the rest of the Peak District accessible by bus or car. A choice of restaurants are available in nearby Baslow and Rowsley. We also went to the Chatsworth Farm Shop- excellent food but expensive so remember to use your time restricted club discount. Many thanks to the team for enabling a very relaxed and peaceful short break on a pleasant site.

Second visit to Chatswoth

Had a good few days at Chatsworth,viewed the house at Christmas 2018.This is well worth the time,although a little expensive. The site is well run by the stewards,the dog walk is very good. Ideal position for access to the house etc. also for touring around the beautiful peak District. The only negative is the access road,the road is a single track with passing places,I would advise not to come all at once at 1.00 pm . Although the queue does move it takes a few minutes to clear .I really enjoyed the site and the area so we will be back again later this year.
