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.

A hidden gem

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Lovely and peaceful site set within the beautiful grounds of the Chatsworth Estate (definitely not Shameless!) Pitches are level and well-ordered, staff are pleasant and helpful. Will definitely return.

Brilliant site

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
First time at Chatsworth CAMC site. It's a peaceful well-ordered site with great access to the Park and plenty of walks from the site. Facilities are very good, the staff, as always on CAMC sites, were friendly and helpful. We came for an event at Chatsworth Gardens but stayed an additional night to go round the Gardens again. We will certainly be back next year for the same event.

Our second visit

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Another wonderful stay. Didn't disappoint us the second time. The weather turned out better than expected. A very friendly welcome from the female warden that met us at the barrier. Well kept grounds and clean facilities. Would have to say on our next visit is to pitch up first, to get 10% off the Chatsworth farm shop and cafe with our receipt. Can't fault the staff or the site. Can't wait to return.

Great site

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
This was our first stay at Chatsworth site and we were impressed. Met by really friendly wardens and given all the relevant information for check in. Pitches are a good size although some have trees overhanging the pitches impacting on the light. Facilities spotless and always plenty of availability. The shop was well stocked and lots of local produce. Got to try the Bakewell tarts. Pizza van twice a week and fish and chip van a nice touch. The key to Chatsworth estate was a bonus. Always somewhere to walk to. Chatsworth house and gardens is a must. The wardens were all friendly and took time out to chat to us. Great site and we have booked again for next year.

Superb site

Chatsworth Park Caravan Club Site
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wardens are super friendly and helpful. The shop is the best stocked shop we’ve ever known on CAMC sites. Spotless facilities. Toilets available when main ones are being cleaned. Immaculate site. Gate through to the stunning Chatsworth house and gardens, walkers paradise. Beautiful Bakewell in easy reach by car but we did a lovely scenic walk there which was 5 miles each way. Pizza van Thursday and Sunday definitely worth a try. We had a fabulous time and will be back. Can totally see why this site is booked up a year in advance. Just one thing to mention - we originally tried to get a super pitch but they were full. Upon arrival we were glad we hadn’t. The super pitches are very shaded by a big wall and lots of trees and get very little sun. So if you like the sun don’t book a super pitch!
