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 on the Chatsworth House estate, guaranteed to give them hours of fun.

Premium site

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
This was our first stop on our week away, the site was lovely although access can be challenging as it's down a narrow lane and you can meet other traffic entering or leaving the site. All the facilities on site are great, the staff are lovely and the location is good offering direct access in to the Chatsworth estate which was lovely. We travelled with 2 dogs and were grateful for the dog exercise area. Access to the local village is via a short and very pleasant walk through the estate grounds, the local village has a Coop, pubs and eateries. Our only disappointment was that despite picking a Super Pitch, it had all the facilities but you end up shading yourself from the sun due to the location of your outfit, so our advice would be to look at the site map and talk to the staff if you want a sunny pitch.

Fab weekend

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
We booked this for the Chatsworth Horse Trials but sadly cancelled due to the weather, We decided to continue with the booking and so glad we did, the weather ended up being superb and had a great 4 days. Chatsworth grounds are great for walking with some wooded trails and a little farm ( dogs not allowed ) Chatsworth House speaks for itself The site is quite dated and could do with general make over (over £50 a night) however the location is great for Chatsworth House, Baslow, Bakewell. We walked to Bakewell a good 4 miles away and there's regular buses back to either Chatsworth bus stop or Baslow (both appox 10 - 15 mins walk to the site ) the Farm Shop is within walking distance but you do need to walk on the main road into Chatsworth ( approx 5-10 mins on the busy road with a small footpath) Baslow itself is quite small but worth a visit and 3 pubs all very friendly. The main bonus for this site are the wonderful team running it, we have never come across such a fabulous bunch, literally went out of their way to help and so accommodating , they always had a smile and a wave and even when they were off duty they were so helpful, you generally always have one grumpy one but not here, they are an absolute credit to CAMC,,, take note CAMC Thank you to the great team for a wonderful weekend :-)

STOP arriving early, its not a race

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
Always stay at Chatsworth at the beginning of the year. Couple of things I would like to point out.. NO ARRIVALS BEFORE 1PM - This means DONT arrive before 1pm and not turn up when you feel like it and block the entrance road. On our recent visit we worked out that we would arrive too early so we found a lay-by and parked up for 20 mins. As we sat admiring the view and letting the dog water the grass I watched as motorhome after motorhome, then caravan after caravan thundered past us and I just knew that wacky races had started. We finished our choccy and off we went, drove along the access road at 1.15pm and was 15th, yes 15th in the queue. I feel really sorry for the wardens with the 'I want to be first there first' crowd. I don't want to be the first there by any means but I think that it would be a good idea that if you select your arrival time as 1 - 2pm, once a certain number have selected this option it is then no longer available so that the grid locking of the entrance does not happen. Secondly I think that the CAMC have got a little greedy with the costs to stay at this site, although its in a lovely location it does not warrant the amounts charged in peak season, as the site is now getting rather worn and tired - the toilet block needs a refurb, the trees need cutting back and the entrance road needs repairing due to pot holes and standing water. We really do love this site but might try somewhere else as our starting point to the season.

Superb Site

Chatsworth Park Club Campsite
The Chatsworth Club Site is excellent in every respect. Anyone who has not used this site should not be discouraged by some of the comments in the Reviews. We did have one problem- we chose a site with a grass area to one side, so that we only had another unit to one side of us. We did not expect that this grass area would be used as a dog toilet by dog owners standing looking into our motorhome whilst their dogs "performed"! We also notice that in the recent Reviews the negative comments are about the dirty and selfish habits of some site users; our sympathies are with the Staff in trying to deal with such people.
