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.

Favourite site, but....

We have stayed at Chatsworth every year since the site opened and we love it. Our children have grown up loving the life of holidaying in a caravan and in particular staying at Chatsworth. They love to join us when we are staying there. We have just returned from a two week stay and despite the weather still had a lovely time, managing to get in a few walks on the Estate and surrounding area. The site is kept very clean and the wardens are lovely, even remembering me from previous years and being able to call me by name when I went to book in. Whilst we realise there is a lot to do on the site and it is a very busy site we feel that it is very much in need of a refurbish. The pitches are quite worn and need new gravel, the wooden surrounds on each pitch have all but disappeared and there are a lot of weeds on the pitches even though it looks as though they have been sprayed with some sort of weedkiller. We love this site so come on CaMC make some investment into this extremely busy site and get it back to the standard we as members expect.

Great site for RHS Flower Show

Booked this site especially for the Flower Show nearly 12 months previously as it is ideal location, just walk through gate and in 15 min walk you are at the show ground. The site is as usual excellent but can get very busy, we had to queue up on the access road and wait just before the small bridge but it was all very light hearted and the warden was chatty and wanted too know when we had booked the site as the show was about to start. Even though the show was on the house was still open as usual and didnt spoil you looking around even though their was acres of extra cars park within the grounds, some quite close to the site but never any noise. This site is excellent and never fails to impress, will definitely do again.

Lovely Site

From the moment we arrived and booked in we fell in love with beautiful walled site. We stayed on a fully serviced pitch providing all services including an Elsan point for emptying the toilet. The pitch was extremely roomy, comfortably siting our van, large awning and car. The facilities are immaculate and spotlessly clean with powerful showers. The site itself gives private access to the Chatsworth estate with all its lovely walks and excellent eateries. The village of Baslow is a short walk through the estate with a couple of excellent pubs and an Italian restaurant. I fully recommend a stay on this site with it’s beautiful setting and friendly, helpful staff, not forgetting all the cute ducks who sit by you and feed from your hand!

Very cramped site

This was our first stay at this site which is in a terrific location on the Chatsworth Estate. It's a 20 minute walk from the site's back gate through the park. The access road is very long and narrow with only one of two passing places. The 13.00 arrival time must be strictly observed. The staff are very pleasant and the site has one of the best stocked shops we have seen. The pitches are rather close together and the site road is narrow giving a feeling of claustrophobia. We pitched under trees which was a mistake due to the heavy rain during our stay. The shower block was very clean but rather dated. We were kept amused by the very friendly ducks and a couple of clutches of chicks living at the site. Think it is rather expensive for what you get.

Great site, perfect Location, but getting a bit tired,

We have visited this site many times over the past 25years, It is a fantastic location, great for dogs, plenty walks from site, good pubs nearby, Farm shop is amazing (but expensive). Nearby towns of Bakewell and Matlock are well worth visiting, and a walk along Curbar Edge or Frogat Edge is a must Sadly this site now needs some refurbishment to bring it back to the high standards that it should maintain. THIS SITE IS VERY BUSY DO NOT ARRIVE EARLY
