The surrounding area

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.

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.

This review is for Bakewell

If you are looking for a quiet, secluded site within beautiful countryside this is it! Impeccably kept, with views of the dales from vertually every pitch. A wide choice of walks can start from the site, including evening strolls up to the village of Youlgrave. Only wish there were more minimum facility club sites in similar locations at reasonably prices.

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.

This review is for Bakewell

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!
