Why stay here ...

Set in the beautiful location of an old walled garden on the picturesque Chatsworth Estate, the Chatsworth Park Club Campsite 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 Campsite. 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.

Great spot

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
Second stay, again in a little enclave by the ‘secret door’ to the estate grounds. Usual peace and quiet apart from the crows of course. They are loud as others say - hence the phrase ‘stone the crows’ I suppose?! A non PC solution these days needless to say. The site is clean and tidy as you would expect from a club site and access to the estate grounds is the highlight. The gardens were lovely with much to see at this time of year.

Great location for visiting Chatsworth & The Peak District

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
This site couldn't be better placed for visiting Chatsworth and other places in the Peak District such as Buxton, Bakewell and the Monsal Trail, but not a site we will be going back to. It was very clean and the facilities were modern and spotless with very hard working, helpful and friendly wardens. Chatsworth is a must for a visit and the gardens were even more impressive than the House and that was special. The Pizza oven on a Sunday evening was fantastic, probably amongst the best pizzas I've ever had but missed the fish and chip van so can't comment on that. The downside for us was that it felt very cramped, the rooks were some of the noisiest birds I've ever heard and the debris that came off the trees made a real mess of the awning and took us two days to get rid of when we got home. Suits some people, but not us I'm afraid.

Excellent site.

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
This is a lovely site. The facilities are all spot on. The staff are very friendly & were exceptionally helpful when we asked to stay an extra night. We love the door in the wall giving access to Chatsworth grounds. I’ve knocked a point off due to the very noisy crows but obviously this is not the fault of the site!

Great campsite - we hope to return

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Chatsworth Park club campsite arriving on a Wednesday. It's location is great, the facilities are of a good standard and well maintained, the staff are welcoming and efficient and there is a magic door in the boundary wall... This takes you into the park of Chatsworth House. We spent a happy hour wandering about on our first evening after the crowds had gone. There are several large pieces of modern art scattered through the grounds. We also discovered that the Chatsworth three day Horse Trials were due to start on the Friday, and the rings and display tents were being set up. We paid our £15 entry on the Friday morning and watched the first few hours of the event before heading south. I gather that pitches on the campsite for next year are booked up. The "Living With Art We Love" exhibition is on until October. Items from the Duke and Duchess's private collection are displayed throughout the public rooms accessible to visitors. We enjoyed the juxtaposition of modern and old. The gardens (ticket entry) behind and above the house are fabulous and extensive. Altogether highly recommended. Picking up points by other reviewrs:- We didn't find the campsite anymore doggy than other club sites. The rooks are noisy but that didn't bother us.

Individual location

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
What a setting . We visited the gardens if Chatsworth and brought a picnic with us . We walked to Bakewell and caught the bus back. There’s lots of pubs and restaurants nearby . The secret gate into Chatsworths ground is great for going for a walk. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the pitches are well spaced out in general.
