 Lovely clean, warm site, staff very helpful,

Hadn't realised until on site that works would be carried out to some pitches, but work didn't start until 8:30 ish so not a problem but would have been nice to know before booking

 Stayed for a week on a serviced pitch, good to not have to worry about refilling and emptying the water, and elsan point on the pitch too! Barely used the excellent facilities block.

Whole site kept to usual high club standards with very helpful and friendly staff.

Nice to have an off lead dog walk and direct access to the estate.

Loads to do in the area, though we didn't make use of any of the local food and drink places.

Definitely recommend it!

 We are just back from 4 nights at Chatsworth. We went to see the Christmas market and the house decorations and really enjoyed both. There is nothing special about the site itself.

It is like a giant car park with trees around it. The facilities are clean and tidy and as this was late autumn, it was good that they were nice and warm.

The site is well maintained and the wardens are friendly. However, the main attraction of this site is the location.

It is in the old walled garden of the Chatsworth Estate and you are given a key so you can let yourself in and out of the estate where there are lots of great walks.

We feel it is worth paying the ridiculously high price simply for the location but donít expect the site itself to live up to the price!

We have been visiting the site for years but this year we discovered breakfast at the Wheatsheaf pub in Baslow.

It is about a 20 minute walk through the estate and out the kissing gate into Baslow, and the Wheatsheaf is just across the road.

They do a great breakfast with lots of choice.

It is definitely worth a visit if you are staying at the site.

 Great site within the Chatsworth grounds. Checking in after 1pm is essential due to the narrow lane for arriving and departing.

Once you have your pitch you get a key to a door leading out to the Chatsworth estate. From here it is about 15-20 minutes walk to Baslow where there are a number of pubs and a couple of shops.

You can also walk to the Chatsworth House and pay to tour inside. If you fancy a walk you can head for Ednsor and on to Bakewell.

Buses to and from Bakewell run frequently.

The site facilities are typical of the Caravan and Motorhome Club.

 We have been to Chatsworth many times before and my previous reviews are still accurate. The site is in an excellent location which is why we keep coming back and the facilities are perfectly adequate and always clean.

In my review from last May, I mentioned the noisy crows for the first time. Well, they have now at least quadrupled in number and scream loudly from dawn to dusk. This has not resulted in a very restful holiday as we have been woken before 6am every morning by the screaming of dozens of crows nesting in the trees on site. If you are sensitive to noise and like to sleep in, then you need to keep this in mind as you definitely wonít be able to!

The price of the site has also gone up considerably this year so we are going to look elsewhere in the area for the future to find somewhere cheaper and more peaceful!

Reviewer: Doulajulie 56 reviews from this member

 Our second visit to the site and it was as good as I remembered. Facilities were spotless and the wardens friendly.

It's pricier than most CAMC sites but I guess that's because of the location in the grounds of Chatsworth House. Visited the house decked out for Christmas, and then the light trail, so festive!

The site was only around 2/3 full so plenty of pitch choice. Drove our motorhome to Buxton as couldn't find a bus that went direct.

Parked at Pooles Cavern for just £2. About a 20 min walk into town.

 Another lovely 3 nights at Chatsworth. There was a lot of rain this time around, and one thing we noticed was that many of the pitches are under trees, resulting in an endless drip drip drip on the caravan roof even when the rain has stopped.

We were on a blue peg pitch, and luckily we were able to get one without trees overhead, but they were few and far between.

Facilities were the same as usual, and we love the ability to walk in the estate.

We enjoyed a number of lovely walks, which is what makes this site for us.
