+ 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.

Caravan pitched up at Chatsworth for 7 nights, Sunday to Sunday, we stayed Thursday to Sunday, with my parents taking the first four nights. We chose pitch 39, as it seemed to be less shady than other pitches, but it's an extremely small pitch, and the hitch was very close to the road. A helpful warden allowed us to pitch sideways on due to the pitch size. Due to a tree with a small grass bank, it wasn't easy pitching this way either. Wardens weren't altogether happy with the final position, but when I explained I couldn't drop the steady they were OK eventually. Wardens were helpful throughout our stay, and helped many visitors site their vans. They were also pleasant when serving our DD when she visited the shop and took time to chat to her, (or be chatted at, more like).

The site is (obviously) superbly placed for visiting Chatsworth, a must if you are staying here. It's also closer

Than I thought to Bakewell, we had a lovely mooch around the shops, watched the annual carnival pass through, and enjoyed a lovely French meal at Le Mistral on the Saturday evening. Bakeway puddings were bought for dessert back at the van, and for gifts for the family.

Facilities on site were immaculate, and there is plenty enough shower rooms and toilets for the number of pitches on site. Only complaint is the closing times for cleaning, the ladies closed 10:30 -> 11:30, gents 11:00 - 12:00. Perhaps a little early in the day for some people? 10:30? We weren't the only people to be caught out by this. Perhaps midday could be a better time to close?

A lovely site, ideal for visiting Chatsworth. Great facilities. Not sure I'd rush to stay again, as it wasn't a fantastically family friendly site - the play park is a little young, no field for ball games etc. But if you just want a couple of nights break on a peaceful (apart from the crows) site then this could be the site for you, if you can get in - book early.

Approach - easy to find using the web site instructions - do not follow a sat nav, we even have the caravan sat nav and that would have taken us to Chatsworth house ! There is not a waiting area so it's imperative you don't arrive before 1pm as instructed due to the width of the access lane.

Staff on arrival - we found the wardens really helpful and friendly, lots of instructions and hints and tips.

Pitch - we had a fully serviced hard standing pitch with awning, this was one of the best pitches we have ever had, both the size and the facilities, we even had our own elsan point on the pitch. Absolutely fantastic, water, waste water, electric and TV hook up. All of the other pitches on the site looked well proportioned and just as nice.

Facilities - plenty of showers, roomy with lots of hot water, very clean. Laundry, washing up area, small shop for basic items. Access to chatsworth park through a gate is amazing. Facilities as in other reviews really excellent.

Local area - Baslow a short walk away (1. 5miles) this has several nice pubs and a small spar (no lottery) Bakewell is a short drive and a lovely market town. Chatsworth farm shop is a must at pilsley, and obviously the grounds of chatsworth and the surrounding peak district are in easy reach.

In summary -very well looked after spacious site that has everything you could wish for.

Was this site for us - yes, we loved it here, can understand why it's always fully booked, we had a very relaxing time, managed to tame a blackbird who came each night for some bread, just had to make sure the ducks didn't see you otherwise they would set up camp on your pitch in the hope of a morsel of food, to be honest they could be a bit of a pain but the little ducklings were lovely and very well fed!

We will definitely return, even though we say we never go to a site twice (because there are so many to try) this site made us change our mind about that self imposed rule !
