Explore the beautiful Peak District National Park from our Bakewell Club Site.

If you’re looking for peace, quiet and wonderful views teamed with walking and cycling, Bakewell Club campsite is for you. Its idyllic location near the pretty village of Youlgreave in the Peak District National Park offers a true back to nature camping experience. Campers report that the site’s minimum facilities are part of its appeal.

Bakewell campsite enjoys a peaceful, rural setting with stunning views over the Derbyshire countryside. The attractive site is excellently maintained and its 100 pitches are spacious, some benefit from the shelter of trees which dot the site. There’s also a small dog walk and a children's play area.

Outdoor pursuits in the area around the campsite are not in short supply. Climbing, caving, horse riding and, of course, walking and cycling, are all available. Coarse fishing only 1/4 mile from site.

Bakewell town is just five miles from the site – try the pudding (not tart) and then visit Haddon Hall and the National Trust’s Ilam Park and on to Dovedale, an iconic and spectacular gorge carved out by the river Dove.

While camping at Bakewell Club Site, take time to witness the ancient custom of Well Dressing – the decorating of wells and springs with pictures made from natural materials. The wells can be seen from May to September.

Please note that this site has no toilet or showers, so you will need suitable facilities in your unit.

Fabulous views from our caravan sited in far field.

This review is for Bakewell

Fabulous views from our caravan sited in far field. We could not fault the site manager and his assistant, they went out of their way to ensure we got TV reception using one of the site's satellite dishes. My wife is disabled therefore we spent a lot of time in our caravan enjoying the scenery. We went to Chatsworth and we were very impressed, not only with the house and grounds but with the disabled facilities. We look forward to going back to the Bakewell site some time, only negative is the access. Our highest praise goes to your site management team.

We were met by David, who was extremely friendly and remembered this was our first outing and we were 'newbies'. He gave us a great pitch in the far field, with amazing views. As quoted there are no facilities, but this was fine as we were self sufficient. Happily trade them in for the unspoilt views. Close enough to Bakewell, Chatsworth and Matlock if you want to get out, but a chair and book is all that's needed here (and maybe a G&T). Will definitely be returning, the dogs loved the dog field too!

We arrived and welcomed on site. A very rural site with the nearest pub a drive away.

We arrived and welcomed on site. A very rural site with the nearest pub a drive away. Bakewell 5 miles. Motorhomes can park in the Agriculture Business Centre car park. A good place for Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. Also plenty of walking.
