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.

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.

A great holiday

We came for the duration of the Chatsworth Country Fair and stayed on for the following week. This is a long holiday by our standards (nine nights) but we were confident about the site as we had visited last November for a few days. The wardens were lovely. I had numerous telephone conversations with them (due to the short notice of our intended stay) before our visit and they were never anything but helpful and patient. Upon our arrival they had obviously had a busy day but were polite and helpful nevertheless. The facilities block and outdoor spaces were clean and tidy even though the site was full to capacity over the weekend. The door through to the estate is a great bonus. We walked around the park and into Baslow on a number of occasions. I'd thoroughly recommend this site.

Secret Garden

We stayed from the 10th of August to the 18th for my husbands birthday, the site is perfectly placed for visits around the Peak District. As for being given a key which allows access from the old walled garden into the park & the view of Chatsworth, how magical & what wonderful dog walks. The site is pretty with many planters & attractive & amusing areas (some sweet carved sheep appeared by a model of Chatsworth) The facilities are spotless, the wardens couldn't be more helpful or amenable & are always busy keeping the site tidy. Absolutely perfect, will certainly return, wonderful memories, thankyou.

Just returned from a wonderful short break at Chatsworth. This is our fourth visit to this site and it remains one of our favourites on the network. One of our reasons for enjoying this site is the care and attention given by the wardens. We really love the vista and amazing experience of unlocking the gate and stepping out on to the Chatsworth Estate, the view is spectacular. We had a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Wheatsheaf Hotel at Baslow, made even more enjoyable given the 20% for being a member of the club. We hope to make a return visit soon.

Comment from the Club:

Many thanks for your review and we are delighted that you had a wonderful time at Chatsworth. We just wanted to clarify to avoid any confusion, the Wheatsheaf Hotel offers members 20% off food from Mon-Fri, not on Sundays.

Site set in the grounds of Chatsworth House

Beautiful setting with secret gate key which gives direct access into Chatsworth House grounds. We felt it wasn’t the greatest welcome on arrival, they were busy and very rushed which showed in their attitude no time to explain anything. Just go find a pitch and come back. Site felt very over crowded and pitches packed in to every available space. Not the best site we have ever been to but you can’t fault the location.

Brilliant site

What a brilliant site, from arriving to be greeted by such lovely wardens and the ducks, to exploring the lovely walks through the gate and the spotlessly clean facilities, everything was just perfect, just wish we could have spent more time there.
