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.

Directions

Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, as this misdirects to Chatsworth House. From the East: Turn left off A619 (Chesterfield – Bakewell) in 8.5 miles in Baslow 150 yards past Cavendish Hotel into site entrance. The entrance to the site is by private single track road, with passing places (no parking or waiting allowed). There is no access through Chatsworth Estate. At the end of the entrance drive there may be a traffic bottleneck outside reception. From the West: from Manchester at junction 1 of the M60 take the A6 to Chapel-en-le-Frith and then the A623 to Baslow. At the roundabout go straight on towards Chesterfield but just after leaving the roundabout take the first turning on the right, just before the Cavendish Hotel. From Buxton take the A6 to Bakewell and then the A619 to Baslow. Then follow directions from the roundabout as above. The site has no Late Night Arrivals Area. Please note that the bridge at site entrance has 5-ton weight limit.

Usual CAMC high standard, and, beautiful, gentle walks

Visited in mid January. Blessed with cold, crisp weather, blue skies and sunshine, although, a cool 9C. Absolutely nothing to complain about. A choice of pleasant walks to the village of Baslow, with a selection of Pubs (with food). Miles and miles of walking in the grounds of Chatsworth Park, accessible direct from the site, via a private gate. Muddy in places, but, this is the countryside, in winter. Nothing that a pair of stout trainers could not handle.

nice weekend BUT !!

just got back from our favourite site,as usual booking in is faultless and the staff are superb at getting things moving. and getting you to your pitch all the facilities are great but are now showing that things are getting tired especially in the toilets , Chatsworth is a great place and there is so much do in the area and the village of Baslow is a nice place to wander to, BUT here is the criticism. Can the caravan club please sort out the mess ,which is just outside the gate surely by talking to the chatswoth estate management something can be done as with this being winter ,the path is a full mud bath and walking is a full boot scenario . with tip toes there is hard core about ,so please can it be used please dont be put off as this is still a great site

Great site

Stayed here for the second week of 2020. Great location for walking without needing to go out in the car. Deer and other wildlife in abundance around the Estate. The new Coop store in Baslow is very handy and an easy walk of 15 mins. from the Site. Plan your visit carefully because Chatsworth House is closed until early March (although restaurant and shops are still open), and several local, popular cafes are also closed at Edensor and Beeley. Despite recent adverse weather, the Site was looking really good. Shame on those moronic individuals that left the toilet facilities in such a disgraceful mess for others to follow, you do not deserve the privilege of Membership. Complete respect to the Winter Wardens, Richard and Tracey and their colleagues for not allowing the few to spoil it of the many, they worked tirelessly to maintain the high standards associated with this Site. Always a ‘go to Site’ for us at any time of year.

Our first caravan site

We arrived at the site in the dark after a long journey. There was a slight mixup with pitches as someone was parked in our allocated space. But he was a nice chap and we sorted it out together. However hooking up my mains power lead took me nearly 40 mins. I tried two leads checking trips and switches on the van and post but to no avail. It was only resolved when I knocked on my neighbours door for help. He said he had had the same problem as me when he arrived, not being able to connect mains but noticed a small label on the post instructing you to push the lead in then twist it until it connects. I had never come across this before. Is it a new thing?? But this is the point of my review. The instruction label on the hookup post Is located directly under the very bright post light so in the dark you can’t see the label telling you how to connect. Please Please can the office staff tell customers arriving after dark not to forget to twist??? It would have saved us so much trouble. Thank you P.S. we had a lovely stay and will come back. Andy

Unhelpful

We were due to stay at Bakewell agricultural centre for one night but it was taken over by an encampment of travellers so we could not stay or fill up with fresh water so thought we would call in at the Chatsworth site on the way to Lincoln and asked as we are members would it be possible to fill up with water. the answer was no! the only way was to book in for one night which we reluctantly did at £36.40 so stayed from 2pm and left at 7am the following morning feeling disappointed with the unhelpful response for water. We have been club members since 2013.
