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 wardens, thank you

We don’t leave many reviews but feel his trip deserves one. Chatsworth is one of those sites that’s fully booked at weekends months ahead but with forward planning we managed to get 3wks here. We overlapped half term which we would probably avoid in the future but it did give us the opportunity to see the site function at full capacity. The rating for peace and quiet and cleanliness is marked on a very busy half term otherwise would be higher. My main reason to leave a review is the marvellous wardens on this site and I’m going to single out Keith Evans in particular, he is without doubt one of the most cheerful and proactive wardens we’ve met. He was often to be seen walking the site (if not on other duties) just checking all was ok and offering help to new arrivals where needed. When I couldn’t get either tumble drier to work he offered to dry my laundry in the office drier, to offer to dry our ‘smalls’ even clean ones was above and beyond a wardens duty. As it turned out he sussed out the reject buttons on the new slot machines were jammed in so didn’t need to take him up on the offer but thanks Keith I really appreciated the offer (he’d gone on a course so didn’t see him when we left to thank him). I’d like to thank all the wardens whether on site or in the office for doing a grand job with a smile during a very busy half term and a special thank you to the wardens who had to ‘muck out’ the ladies every day, it’s been said before but please ladies play fair the wardens aren’t there to clean that sort of thing up after you it’s disgusting and unfair!

Brilliant site

Stayed for 4 nights last week. Brilliant welcome from the wardens on a wet snowy day. Facilities clean and hot, loads of hot water. Didn't use the magic gate but will next time. Don't be that person who arrives before 1. There is a good reason for this and it's due to a narrow lane. Saw many outfits abondoned around midday obviously waiting. Simply aim to arrive at 1330 and if traffic is good and you arrive half hour early you'll still be able to sail in. Definitely going back to this site soon!

Wonderful relaxing place.

Just spent 7 peaceful nights at Chatsworth and enjoyed everything about the park from the fully serviced super pitch to the dog walk and having access to chatsworth house estate grounds through a locked gate which reception supple a key. top class facilities which were spotless and i would recommend taking plenty of duck feed because there were plenty on site. There is a local spar store and post office nearby which stocks plenty of tasty treats. This site is ideal for dog lovers with plenty of walks but I couldn't take advantage of this because I have a lazy bulldog who is so stubborn and refused to walk anywhere so my next visit I will be bringing a pet stroller.

Wonderful

We arrived to a very warm welcome and found the site was much better than we'd remembered. It was quiet, relaxing, friendly and the facilities were absolutely spotless. Just a shame that some caravanners don't clean up after themselves in the showers which isn't the fault of the wardens. There were some lovely walks from the site without having to use your car and it isn't far to get to Bakewell or Castleton from here.

Great walking

A lovely site with the usual high standards of the caravan club , warm shower / toilet blocks and centrally located . Our visit was February and the dog walk and entrance to the park were very muddy indeed , lots of towels etc were needed before we could allow our spaniel anywhere near the caravan . We enjoyed visits to Buxton , chatsworth park , and Bakewell on market day , all were thoroughly enjoyed . We only wish our finances would allow us to visit this site during the summer months , but being pensioners we find the minimum £30 plus a night very prohibitive . A lovely site overall.
