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.

Beautiful location and site

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
We have just returned from this beautiful location. We arrived well after 1pm as we had read there is only a short waiting area before a very busy road. The site is always very busy so we were very pleased to find a nice pitch under trees. Not everybody’s choice but in the very hot weather it was ideal. The staff are all pleasant and work hard keeping everything clean and tidy. The access gate to Chatsworth is the icing on the cake and we were able to stroll when it was a little cooler in the evening when nobody else was around. The wood fired pizza on Sunday and Wednesday were excellent and there is a little shop in reception for basic items. Our only issue (that we will talk to the warden about when we are able to book again) is some of the internal roadways are very narrow on corners for a larger twin axle with plastic bollards on some junctions restricting taking a wide turn. Fabulous site in a fantastic location.

Disappointing

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
This was the most expensive site we've booked this year (£44.10 per night for a standard pitch) so we had high hopes of a stunning site. We were very disappointed to find that most of the better located pitches were taken - the site doesn't let anyone on site until after 1.00pm but they do allow them to wait in the lane which means they get let on the site first and those of us who arrive after 1.00pm get the pitches that are left. Our pitch was cramped and we had a lot of noise from neighbouring pitches - the neighbours weren't particularly noise, just very close. The site no longer has bins at the service points as the site staff are reducing the amount of plastic used (which is good news) however they have large Biffa bins in front of the toilet block and these are an eyesore - especially with the lids propped open. The only good thing about the site was the gate into the parkland and the lovely walks around the area - we loved the area but won't return to this site.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
We have spent a wonderful four days at our favourite site. First outing since pandemic began. Breath of fresh air. Staff very helpful and friendly. Great to be able to walk out into Chatsworth Park. A lovely setting and amenities are clean. Ideal base for seeing some stunning scenery in the Peak District. Highly recommended site. Angela Rowell

Great site, stunning

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
We had been recommended this site. An interesting long narrow road as you enter. Lovely facilities and the best stocked site shop we have ever come across. They give you a key to the door to Chatsworth Park and its beautiful. Ducks wandering from pitch to pitch. On the negative, the intro says "great for dogs" they do have the usual off lead exercise area on site...but the whole of Chatsworth requires dogs on leads..which was disappointing for us. Also there were a lot of crows on site which got noisy in the mornings. I would recommend this site, but change the site description and be specific about no off lead dig walking.

Weekend Away

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
We hadn't been to this site for over a year. The wardens are friendly and helpful, they give you an information sheet that they have done themselves to make your stay even better! You have access to the grounds via a key to the door on the site, this makes for a lovely walk. We went to the Devonshire Arms expensive (would have been cheaper had we remembered that people on this site get a discount)! However it was very nice and they did some lovely desserts and nothing was too much trouble. We have booked to come back next year and can't wait.
