 Oh my goodness, what a fantastic site! The site itself is in a walled garden area on the Chatsworth Estate. Access is available from the site into the estate grounds around the house. No charge is made for this. However, charges are made for visiting the gardens, farmyard and house. Discount is available as a caravan club member.

All the facilities are brilliant, recently refurbished the toilet blocks are outstandingly clean and tidy. The pitches are all hardstanding so metal pegs are required.

There is a shop on site which sells the basics, as with all caravan sites they are a little expensive, but that is to be expected.

Small play area for younger children nothing for older children.Scooters and bikes are allowed but not near toilets blocks.

Dogs are welcome with a designated dog walking area available.

There are plenty of pubs and restaurants around the campsite area, all within walking distance.

Trip to Bakewell recommended but very disappointed with Buxton. Looks a little jaded.

I would recommend travelling to Chatsworth Caravan Site as early as possible, allowing you to arrive as the gates open at 12 noon -(not before as the road is narrow down to the site and you will be asked to turn back until 12) - Site is very popular and pitches are on a first come first served basis.

Well worth the visit, grounds are fantastic and house is beautiful - take your camera!

 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. The area outside of reception is cobbled and it can be quite daunting to drive over it.

Chatsworth is a real gem of a site which is set within what was a walled garden. There are 120 pitches in total including 26 'Super Pitches'. The 'super' pitches have their own fresh water supply and waste water and WC disposal, there is a £2 surcharge per night. All the other pitches are on hardstanding, useful as the site is open all year.
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.
The old reception building is now the information room. The Reception sells newspapers, milk and bread plus walking maps of the area. When you tell reception where you are pitched they provide you with a key that provides access to the site from the park. This site is open to non-members but not to tents. 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. The site offers a WiFi service and access cards can be purchased from Reception. Mobile reception is OK

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 some restaurants in Baslow 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, this not only secures a small discount but also allows you to bypass the queue for people paying on the day. For day to day supplies major supermarkets are well represented in Chesterfield.

 First visit here, stopped for 4 nights on a Regular pitch. Like all other reviews, nice site, spotless facilities, very busy, some pitches a little cramped and very quiet at night.

Fantastic area for walking, with many varied routes. The house & gardens will take a full day to see.

Walked into Baslow for a pub meal. If you are a keen walker, a hard site to beat. Very relaxing & we enjoyed good weather. Can highly recommend.

 Loved it!

We were here during the snow - walked through the gate in the wall into the park - it was like a winter wonderland! The dog loved it and so did we.

We have used both the super pitches (although the water was frozen to couldn't connect directly to the tap) and standard pitches. They are handstanding, a reasonable size and flat.

Showers etc. Are usual good CC standard.

Easy walk through park to Baslow - Duke of Devonshire is a dog friendly pub (although we haven't actually eaten there). If you walk back in the dark - remember to take a torch (and the key to the gate!)

The Chatsworth farm shop is a foodie's heaven - but easy to spend a fortune there!

Not far from Bakewell which is a great town - lots going on, good shops, pubs, take aways and market.

 Typical caravan club site but set within lovely grounds, friendly but strict site, small play area, not really enough for such a large site. The showers have recently been redone and are immaculate, small bath is a welcome for small children! The surrounding area is beautiful and so much to see and do we'd definitely go again, if only to buy some of the fabulous cakes they sell.

 We stayed on a super pitch and found that standard pitches are more spacious. The super pitches do however offer more privacy. The toilet blocks have recently been re-built and are lovely. The site is spotless and the wardens are very friendly.
The walk to Chatsworth is lovely and only takes about 15 mins. The playground is not very well equiped and my Neice who is 7 found it very boring. We have booked again for October and are looking forward to it - so far this is my favourite site!

 My views on Chatsworth are as follows :-

+ Staff incredubly friendly, professional and smartly dressed

+ Site is spotlessly clean

+ Good size pitches

+ Toilets without a doubt the best I have seen anywhere

+ Beautiful setting, incredibly quiet and peaceful

+ A mile stroll to the village of Baslow and some cracking pubs (the Wheatsheaf serves the best Marstons Pedigree I have ever had)

- Shop could have carried a bigger range of products

- Children's play area was very small with not much to do on it

Overall very very highly recommended and we will definitely go back again.

 Just returned from a delightful week at Chatsworth, would recommend the super pitch as some of the others are a bit tight. As usual with a club site the place is immaculate and the toilets exemplary.
The village of Baslow is a fifteen minute walk away and is well served with hotels, the Devonshire was very nice. Buses are pretty frequent to Bakewell and Chesterfield.
The Chatsworth estate is glorious and you can walk and picnic in the grounds without hindrance.
A very relaxing destination, beautiful scenery and a place we shall certainly return to.

 First time on a CC site, very nice site, kind staff on arrival, the wow factor has to be the location being so close to Chatsworth house. Toilet & showers clean and never had to queue once.  It was lovely to have "resident ducks" outside the caravan every morning waiting for their breakfast.  Although the play area is very small, our children loved it and spent a lot of the time riding round on their bikes.  Pitches were ok, not as big as some sites we have been on.  Negative feedback would have to be that you can't book a specific pitch or ones next to one another.  We arrived on the Saturday, told to drive round and find an empty pitch and then go back to tell reception what number you were on!  
Also we had family arriving on the Monday and had to just hope and pray that someone next to us was leaving (which they did) and we had to sit in the pitch to save it for them till they arrived. should take a deposit as people appear to just not turn up, leaving pitches empty that others could have used. Noticed a few stern adult faces as children enjoying themselves, if they don't like children then don't come to a family site, go to an adult only site in future.  We were all children once !

 This is a marvellous caravan site! We managed to book this caravan site at short notice, probably picked up a cancellation. We are very pleased at this! This has to be one of my favourite caravan sites!
The site is well organised. Nicely laid out. Loved the secret door into Chatsworth House and the bird feeders. Woke up to ducks quacking outside our door!   
Toilets and showers clean. Really nice showers - had two each day to make the most of them! Lots of great walks in the surrounding area. Highly recommended. Will visit again, soon!
