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.

August staycation

We had a warm welcome onto the site by the wardens. Very friendly and all smiles. The grounds were well kept and the toilet and shower blocks were very clean. The baby and toddler room was a surprise, which we didn’t use but good to know that they had one onsite. As this was our first COVID-19 stay away. So we bought additional equipment for our campervan. Like a outside pop up shower tent. Knowing that toilets and shower block would be closed on some sites. We didn’t need to use it. As the toilets and shower block were open and had a limit on how many people went in. Social distancing markers were marked outside with a one way system. We only stayed the one night but wish I had booked for the whole weekend. As you would need it to have a good walk around Chatsworth Estate. I would definitely be going back again, as our stay made us join the Caravan and motorhome club. I recommend anyone visiting Derbyshire to stay at the site as it allows you to walk onto the Chatsworth Estate through a secret door, which a key is given to you on arrival.

Amazing Chatsworth

This site one first class from start to finish. So well organised and friendly. The staff couldn’t do enough to make our stay brilliant. Thank you to the lady warden...sorry didn’t get her name. For lending us a cork screw in our hour of need.

Wonderful stay!

What a lovely site with fantastic, friendly and super helpful staff. Check in was super smooth with great Covid measures in place and really clean facilities. The couple who run this place are so friendly and helpful. They made our 7 year old feel so welcome. The secret key giving you 24/7 access to the Chatsworth Estate is awesome with lovely walks to some great pubs and cafes. Thank you!

Best check in procedure yet

Definite contender for a flagship site; however, the check in procedure is the best I have experienced to date. The staff meet you on the driveway, tick you off on a list and tell you to go straight in, find a pitch and then go to reception to pay etc. This is far, far better than other sites where you queue for ages to go into reception and pay prior to going in and finding a pitch. All sites should do this, not just during the covid crisis but forever afterwards.

A beautiful site in a unique location

We have been trying to book a pitch on this popular site for a long time and finally succeeded! The site surpassed our expectations. Its situation within Chatsworth Park and the ability to explore it from the site was fantastic. It was amazing to see two species of deer, fallow and red, as well as the friendly ducks which roam the site. It is a very pretty site, with lots of trees and has a lovely ambiance. There were so many beautiful walks without using the car. Apart from the Park, the ‘model village’ of Edenzer and the lovely walks along the river, we enjoyed a splendid walk up on to Baslow and Curbar Edges, with their stunning views and fascinating rock formations. There are plenty of pretty towns and villages within easy reach and a walk into Bakewell from the site can be recommended. We look forward to our next visit, provided we can find availability!
