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.

Beautiful Club Site

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Stayed for a week in July, this was our first visit but certainly will not be our last. The site is beautiful and very handy for lots of walks throughout the peak district. The gate taking you onto the grounds of the Chatsworth estate is very handy especially for walking our 2 dogs. The only negative is we couldn't let our dogs off their leads but this was not too much of an issue. We did not use the pizza van so cannot comment on if it was any good but had a lovely meal at the Wheatsheaf pub in Baslow and got 20% off thanks to being members of the club which was excellent and would definitely go back. Everyone needs to be aware that entry onto the site is from 1pm and they should not turn up early as it is a very long one lane road onto the site and this does cause issues. Toilet blocks nice and clean and good hot showers. Wardens were great and very friendly and helpful. Baslow handy for food shop and bakewell only a few miles away with a good weekly market. All in all and excellent site and well worth staying at.

Beware of sheltered games room

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Great site but a bit expensive. Beware if you pitch on non awning pitches 59 to 61 as there is a sheltered games room behind the pitches which is not marked on site map. People walk over your pitch to get to it & play table tennis which can be noisy if you want an early night!

Great site - well run

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Turned up late and 'on the off chance' of staying a couple of nights. Tina & Wendy were brilliant. Lovely location - walked to Chatsworth House 15 minutes away and later had a great meal in Baslow at one of the pubs. Highly recommended

Walking

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Such a beautifully kept site, flower beds, grass and just everything about this site is kept immaculate by the hard worked wardens. My only issue is with the immediate walking if you have a dog. I did realise that dogs needed to be on a lead in Chatsworth grounds and am happy enough with that, but we couldn’t actually find anywhere that we could walk with our dog running off lead which was a bit of a disappointment, but truly if that’s no problem to you, it’s a great site and area.

Cracking site

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Stayed for 8 nights to attend the Fox terrier meet in Chatsworth Park. Check in was easy, the warden was waiting on the approach road which is single track. I like the new system of pitching first then going to pay, reducing the number of times going to reception. Wardens friendly if you saw them out & about on this well kept site. Well stocked shop including lovely cream teas, bread, pies to order. Can’t comment on the facilities as we always use our own. Pizza van 3 times a week, highly recommended. Lovely walks into Chatsworth park & surrounding area. Looking forward to visiting again next year..
