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.

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.

Good base for exploring

Had 2 nights at this site in October. We were anxious about the approach having read of the single track for over half a mile; however the 12pm depart and arrivals after 1pm works perfectly. The site is amongst glades / trees with few pitches in the open. This does make some areas very dark even at the height of the day. Pitches are tightly packed in. Toilet facilities were very clean, although the shower water temperature in the ladies can be a bit hit and miss. Motor home service point is awkwardly situated and takes a bit of manouvering depending on your outlets/inlets. There is an adequate secure dog walk, but we were advised upon arrival that dogs are no longer allowed off lead in this area due to an incident the previous week - so there is nowhere to allow your pet any freedom. The site is generally quiet but at night the rutting deer can be heard howling. There is a direct pedestrian access into Chatsworth park through a keyed gate. The main house is approx half a mile. In opposite direction is Baslow village with 3 pubs, tea room and bus stops in each direction. Bakewell town is £4.25 return each and a lovely small town - well worth a visit.

Well maintained site

We really enjoyed our stay at the Chatsworth site. Very busy but super pitches are great and the location near to the house and Bakewell is excellent. The facilities are very good and staff helpful. We would definitely return.

One of the best

We have visited the Chatsworth site 3 times now and it never fails to impress. It is however quite a long walk from pubs, restaurants and shops in Baslow, along an unlit access road. Fine during the day but really a drive at night, not ideal if you are in a motorhome without a spare car. The only negative I have is closing the mens shower block at 10am for cleaning. Its just too early, i went out for a morning run to find the place closed, most sites seem to start cleaning a little later, say 1030, particularly as members cannot arrive on site until 1pm due to access issues.

Nature at its best

Waking up to such a loud dawn chorus is invigorating. Lovely to see the ducks and pheasants in abundance around the site. Well groomed site offering long walks on the Chatsworth estate. The toilet blocks are extremely clean with service facilities close to all pitches. The Wardens have made us very welcome and share their knowledge of the area freely. Will be back for the Christmas fair, site availability pending. Thanks to the Wardens for making our stay enjoyable.
