This was my first experience of a CC site, and I really hope that it isn't typical.

We arrived at 1:20, to join a queue of thirteen units inching along the narrow approach drive. 25 minutes later we reached reception, where we were given precise instructions on exactly how to align our car and caravan.

I managed a fairly tight reverse into what was quite a cramped standard pitch and thanked my lucky stars that our van is only a 2-berth poptop.

I feel that, given its location in the Peak National Park (ie. Not on the outskirts of a city) far too many pitches have been shoehorned in here. Our pitch had an associated metre-wide strip of grass on which we could just fit a couple of chairs.

Whilst acknowledging the fact that, in terms of facilities provided, the site is very good indeed, for me there is far more to the overall quality of a caravan site than the provision of an outstanding loo block, which, incidentally, this has.

There's little point, I feel, in repeating what has already been stated over and over in the many good reviews for this site. Certainly it has many plus points, but for me, whilst meticulously maintained, it lacked atmosphere and left me unmoved.

This was our first stay at a Caravan Club site, and only our third stay anywhere in our caravan (previously we used tents).

We were really impressed! The whole site is very tidy and clean - including/especially the toilets, showers, and washing-up facilities. I found the shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure and there was plenty of room for putting my things and changing.

The site is in a great location - you can go out a back gate straight onto the Chatsworth estate. Go right up to the house and left will take you to the village where there are some pubs. (We went to the Wheatsheaf as it is extremely family-friendly with a great play area. )

The management/employees of the site were all very kind and helpful and the shop is good - better than many campsites we've been to. No difficulties getting in and out although you probably wouldn't want to leave after 1pm when caravans are allowed in. I mean, we left in our car OK but it maybe could get awkward if caravans or motorhomes met on a bend.

We pitched directly across from the small playground so our kids were able to have fun out of the way.

There were no problems with the electricity. We don't have a telly in our caravan but there were ports for coaxial cables for those who want it. I wasn't thrilled with the wifi, which was a bit slow - especially for 2. 50 per 24 hours.

We will definitely return.

+ A unique site which is probably why it is so expensive and full.

+ Toilets and showers clean, wardens friendly.

- some pitches cramped so can hear noise from other pitches at night.

+ nice dog walk area which is secure so they can be off lead

- huge queue to get in and you also have to get round this if you go off site in your car and then come back, although wardens are good at keeping it moving

- small play area

- not good for cycling -cant cycle on much of the park and have to go on busy roads or drive to other cycle routes

+ key to walk onto the estate that brings you directly onto a footpath.

Overall a nice site. Will we return? Probably not as there ar other sites that offer better value for us even if they are not quite as unique.

Just returned from a weekend here for my husbands birthday. It was our first stay and it certainly won't be our last, in fact we re booked two more weekends whilst we were there !

We only live 15 mins away from site but we love chatsworth and couldn't resist the chance to stay in the grounds the location is stunning !

The wardens are very friendly and helpful as are the ladies in reception, nothing too much trouble even though they are very busy, the site was full ! Reception sells newspapers and food/camping essentials.

Pitches are large and flat with hard standing surrounded by grass (and loads of very friendly ducks who expect to be fed )

Showers and loos were spotless and plentiful.

Lovely dog walk area on site with poo bins located all the way around.

Access to the park via an allocated key. Lovely walk into baslow about 15 mins all flat and footpaths. Great pubs to visit for food or a drink( the Devonshire arms is dog friendly too) and loads to do and see around chatsworth house.

We were also very pleased that they welcomed some of our family members who visited us to say happy birthday.

Can't wait to return :)

First break of the New Year, a lovely usual CC standard site. Very quiet for our 3 night stay, less tha a dozen units on site for 2 of the nights.

Facilities fantastic and clean/warm, some cubicles and showers locked due to low occupancy on site but still plenty open and a sensible approach.

Wardens very friendly and ready to assist when asked but not intrusive just how we like it. The weekend was very windy and wardens cleared debris up well and as we left tree surgeons were present clearing up and pruning.

The door into the estate is fantastic and very Toms Midnight Garden for those of a particular vintage. Easy walk to either the house or Baslow and both well worth the walk ( house closed until March but stables and shops open)

We will return at some stage when house open when I am sure site will be a lot busier

A great site with normal standard of CC facilities. The wardens worked extremely hard to ensure everyone had a great stay. The whole team seem to be on duty just after 1:00pm to direct traffic on the narrow approach road. They were so helpful. In the middle of October we experienced the dear rut. A fantastic site and you could hear the stags bellowing late into the night. There is a good bus service either from near Chatsworth House or from the bes stop at Baslow.
