 This campsite is absolutely amazing! Very well run by the friendly welcoming staff.

The shower and toilet blocks are brilliant we couldnít fault them at all.

They have all very good facilities to hand and they even have a place where you can shower down your dog if itís dirty.

We had our dog with us and there are so many different walks.

Chatsworth House definitely worth a visit too. We only stayed the two nights but would definitely stay for more next time. Itís such a peaceful place to stay and we had lunch in the Devonshire Inn and the food was lovely.

Definitely worth a stay.

 Perhaps it's because the kids are still at school but this is one of the most peaceful and relaxing we have stayed on. The noisiest thing being the crows.

Good facilities, great wardens, nice flat fully serviced pitch and very lucky to get one with plenty of sunshine and not under any trees.

The key to the magical Kingdom beyond the gate into the Chatsworth Estate makes it that little bit special.

Lots to do in the local area including Bakewell and I can also vouch for the Peaks Ales and Chatsworth Gin.

 This is a regular site for us and I have reviewed it before, however as this was our first trip out since the COVID restrictions were eased slightly, I thought I would do a quick review of how the site is dealing with the current situation.

When we were there the toilet block was open but only for the toilets and wash hand basins, not the showers. Three people are allowed in the toilet block at any one time and a rubber band system is used to indicate how many people are currently in the block. However unfortunately many people were forgetting to replace their bands after using the toilets, so it appeared that the toilet block was full when in reality there was only one person or even no one inside! This is not the sites fault though!

The wardens were doing an excellent job at keeping everything really clean and social distancing was well maintained. The normal check-in process was changed so instead of going to reception when you arrived, you were met on the driveway by a warden who gave you a plan of the site and sent you directly to find a pitch. Once set up, you returned to reception at your leisure to pay and get your door key to the estate.

We love staying here because of the access through the door into the Chatsworth estate and the many many different walks that you can go on directly from the site. It was lovely to be back after lockdown and the wardens were doing a great job to ensure that everyone had a pleasant and safe stay.

 I wasnít expecting to like this campsite quite as much as I did. :-) Our preference is usually for informal small sites, CS or CLs, where the children can run, your nearest neighbour is half a field away, the price is low and all-in, and it doesnít matter where you pitch relative to a peg. However, we fancied a change and Iím really pleased we did.

Yes, the pitching process is pernickety, the neighbours were closer than I like, and the pitch was smaller than we are used to (in fairness, it was probably a good size - we are just unaccustomed to defined borders these days 🙂). And the pricing system was a revelation - when youíre used to paying a single price regardless of number of occupants/awning status/age of kids (how do I know in advance whether Iíll bother with the awning, whether Iíll bring the porch awning or full one - it depends on the forecast/whether we bring bikes - how am I supposed to know this in advance 🤯🤦🏽‍♀️).

But the welcome was warm, the wardens were friendly and approachable, the site was quiet and felt secure, and the secret door giving access to the whole Chatsworth estate was a delight.

Weíd been slightly uneasy about the single track access road, but their arrivals and departures system worked well.

Thereís a small playground - aimed at younger children than my 9&14 year olds.

We didnít use the facilities, though the Covid wristband system was simple and straightforward. Our pitch had an Elsan emptying point and a fresh water point - they were very much appreciated after a long day of walking!

The shop seemed well-stocked, though we had everything we needed for a short stay so I didnít investigate too closely. Fresh bread and pies are available to order daily from Bloomers in Bakewell - definitely one for next time.

Weíve gone from it being a spur of the moment visit that we had no intention to repeat to it being our first planned place to visit once lockdown is lifted!

Apparently I canít submit my review without leaving a rating for the site facilities - we didnít go into the toilet blocks/buy anything from the shop but I canít leave that box empty so have given it a 9 🥴

 Excellent site. Great staff who are very helpful. Good little shop on site. All Covid measures being exceptionally well followed.

The best thing is the easy access to the grounds of Chatsworth Estate, with miles of lovely walks.

We will be back.

Reviewer: Coopertroopers 58 reviews from this member

 Fantastic site - wardens couldnít have been friendlier and helpful with advice on Covid-19 restrictions - helpful that the site has a couple of unisex toilets which reduces queuing for the facilities block where only 3 people are allowed in at any one time.

We had pre booked tickets to visit the gardens of the house and were more than happy with our visit- the gardens are huge and allow dogs which weíve not found elsewhere. I had thought an hour would be long enough to explore but three hours later we were still wandering around.

Didnít get round to walking in to Baslow or completing the walks of the estate suggested by Chatsworth - will have to save those for our return visit.

 This is our go to site and I have reviewed it before but thought I would add another Covid19 review! We went for 3 nights just after the site opened again after lockdown.

Things were being managed very well. There was a maximum of 3 people allowed in the toilet block at any one time but they also have 2 separate toilets accessed from the side of the toilet block which were always open if you just needed the toilet and there were 3 people already in!

The wardens were doing a great job at keeping the site clean and had made a few changes to make life a bit easier for them, for example all bins were removed from service points and instead you had to take your rubbish to a large industrial sized bin by the toilet block. This wasnít really much of an inconvenience and it meant that the wardens didnít have to touch the bins which helps to keep them safer.

Generally people were paying attention to social distancing and we had a really enjoyable stay. We mainly like the area for walking which is what we did and came across very few others on our numerous walks in the area.

Reviewer: Madasmad 13 reviews from this member

 Itís been a few years since we have been to Chatsworth but it is still a fantastic place to go. So here are the good and bad points;


Location is outstanding being right in the Chatsworth Estate. You get a key to a ďmagicĒ gate (as my daughter calls it) which takes you into the park for a twenty minute walk to the house or the other way to Baslow.

Good selection of local restaurants with 20% discount (Mon-Fri) at The Wheatsheaf

The facilities are clean, well lit and lovely and warm.

Pitches have a TV aerial connection but 15m+ cable needed on most pitches.

Pitches level and dry

Wardens knowledgable and helpful

Bad points;

Very expensive at over £100 for 2 nights!

 This is a regular haunt of ours and we love the location of the site, right in the grounds of the Chatsworth estate.

The shower block is well equipped and clean but the water pressure is very poor when the site is busy.

Unfortunately on our last visit we were evacuated from the site due to flooding but this is the only time this has happened to us in about 20 visits so I assume it is a rare occurrence.
