This is a gem of a site - reflected by the fact that it's almost always booked up at weekends!

The pitches are level and the size you'd expect from the Caravan Club. We found the wardens to be friendly and always about in case you needed them.

The shower and toilet blocks are kept immaculate and warm.

We have dogs and being able to walk straight out into the Chatsworth Estate is great meaning we can pitch up and not have to drive anywhere for decent walks. Village shop and pubs also in walking distance.

Stopped here years ago and really liked it so no problem returning, road up to site can be tight if oncoming car meets you but don't let it out you off as plenty of places to pass, reception area when you pull up to book in can be busy, we arrived approx 14. 00 Friday and plenty of pitches left to choose from nice sizes and all very level.

Toilet block and showers are immaculate not much else on site though small park for kids.

Very good site for winter stays as good hard standings and toilets very warm.

Lots to see and visit in area never stuck for anything to do in whatever weather.

Can't fault the site at all my only slight criticism is would be nice to have a bit better park for the kids but will definitely return again.

We booked here for my husbands birthday and it was our 1st trip out this year. My hubby works in Derbyshire and knows the area very well we booked the Italian across the road for the Friday night which we thought was only a 5 minute walk, so quite disappointed when we arrived Thursday tea time driving up the never ending country lane (20 minute walk). We were told of 4 available pitches by the stern warden, having driven around two were already taken, so we went for the first we saw. The warden asked if we had a motor mover, we said 'no', 'oh dear' he said 'you have a twin axle, might be tight to reverse in', well when you book online your details are listed to your size of caravan so there shouldn't be a problem, but on our visits to cc sites some of the pitches are small. We set up but felt looked upon by our neighbours. We decided to use the gate into chatsworth but turned around to the amount of fallen trees. We walked on the lane to baslow, for me my mobility is not good, took around 20-30 minutes. Devonshire arms & wheatsheaf do nice food. The dog walk was dark and muddy and the poo bin hadn't been emptied so around 15 poo bags on top of the bin. I don't think we will return to this site, there are a lot nicer ones.

To Find Site:- From both Bakewell and Chesterfield take A619 towards Baslow. Site entrance is between the two roundabouts in Baslow. Access to the site is by a long narrow road, although there are passing places it could be difficult for two towed caravans to pass. Therefore the Caravan Club instruct you not to arrive before 1. 00pm. The reverse is that everyone must leave the site by 12. 00 noon. As space is limited immediately outside of reception the warden will sometimes ask you to remain with your outfit until you can proceed to the front of the queue. On leaving, when rejoining the main road you are asked to turn left and use the roundabout to turn and head back towards Chesterfield.

Chatsworth is a real gem of a site which is set within what was a walled garden on the Chatsworth Estate. The site is open all year and is open to non-members but not to tents. There are 120 pitches in total all of which are on gravel hardstandings. There are four pitch types which you must specify when booking, either standard awning or non awning pitch and super pitch again with or with out awning. The super pitches have their own fresh water supply and waste water and WC disposal and command an additional nightly fee. Although every inch of the site is used for pitches it has been cleverly designed so that pitches do not seem crowded. The one central toilet block is quite large and of excellent standard having recently been upgraded and now includes the Mother and Baby room. There is also a covered washing up area with three sinks. Service points are dotted around the site and the motorhome service point is not far from the toilet block, unfortunately to drain grey waste still requires drain covers to be lifted. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. Reception sells newspapers, milk and bread plus walking maps of the area. Near to reception is an information hut. When you tell reception where you are pitched they provide you with a key that provides access through a gate into the Park. This site Being a very popular site it is usually necessary to book in advance particularly at weekends and holidays, at the very least it is advised to phone ahead to check if there is space. There is site wide WiFi and access can be purchased online. However we did find performance a bit patchy. Mobile reception is OK. The site is has many tall trees so satellite signal might be a bit difficult but the electric bollards do have a co-ax connection which is free to use but you have to provide your own cable or buy one from reception.

There is lots to do in the area. You could amuse yourself by walks direct from the site. However most of the Peak District is within easy reach. There is a Garden Centre at Calton Lees a couple of miles from the site and a rather superb Estate Farm shop. There are a several restaurants in Baslow plus a cafe and details are usually found in the site information room. Chatsworth House, no doubt, will be the main attraction for a stay on this site. It is only reasonable walk from the site, alternatively there is ample parking at the house. Tickets can be purchased online at www. Chatsworth. Org There is no longer a discount offered for Club members although there are limited offers available in the cafes and shop on production of your membership card. For day to day supplies major supermarkets are well represented in Chesterfield. For those wishing to explore there are also several bus services from Baslow to either Chesterfield or Bakewell.

Chatsworth is our caravan site of the year. What a lovely caravan site, the grounds are immaculately kept, the pitches are a good size, the location is perfect in the grounds of Chatsworth house. The site is in an old walled garden, on arrival you are given a key to a door in the wall which gives access to the grounds of Chatsworth house, well worth a visit even if it's just to walk through the grounds. The pitches are a good size with extra large pitches for units with awnings, the shower and toilet facilities are plentiful and well kept. We don't normally choose sites of this size but it was so well planned that it never felt that you were in amongst a large group of vans.

Chatsworth camp site is in a lovely location ran by friendly helpful people, well worth a visit.

A well run site, clean and organised. We booked for 3 nights and increased this to 4 as there is so much to do in the area. A well positioned site but not very spacious and lots of trees so not easy to find a sunny spot. There is a good bus service from Baslow - 20 minutes walk away so if you do not have a car you need to like walking. If you do like walking there are lots of opportunities and a small map is available at the site shop. Chatsworth House and Gardens are beautiful and Bakewell is a lovely town. We also cycled the nearby Monsal Trail which was brilliant. We took our van off site for this and there is excellent parking at the old Hassop station. We would like to return but the site is expensive and much more than we normally pay.
