This review is for Bakewell

Firstly the route into the site isn't as bad as some reviews suggest. Unless you're very inexperienced or have an enormous outfit it really isn't an issue. I really enjoyed my stay at Bakewell Club Site, it's a very peaceful site set in the rural tranquility of the Peak District. There is no shower or toilet facilities on site which really cuts down on pedestrian traffic around the site. It's a bit like a large CL which was the big appeal for me. I had 4G reception on Vodafone but if you want TV you'll most likely need a satellite dish. There is a small children's play area but it was roped off, so I suggest you ask before booking if that is something you would want to use. Unless you're on hardstanding you will need some blocks for levelling up as the site has quite a slope to it. I have two Labradors and the dog walk on site is great. Plenty of room to throw a ball and lots of hedge to sniff. Although the site literature states that dogs must be on leads while on the dog walk I was told by the warden that it was fine to let them off lead as long as they are well behaved. As soon as I book more time off work I will be back. I can see myself becoming a regular at Bakewell.

This review is for Bakewell

Just returned from a long weekend stay very peaceful and quiet site! But just HORRENDOUS getting to it! We have a 4 berth coachman , Stress level of 10 being for the lanes you have to go down and up! and not much help really with the residents parking side by side on the roads, after reading previous reviews after eventually getting there! One guy had put that it was like driving through the Alps , absolutely know where your coming from there! Yes to describe it the Alps!!!! The lanes driving to it was a nightmare if a car was coming the other way! It was fingers crossed to get by! But hey ho ! We made it! Which I can't really fault the site at all, we knew there was no shower facilities, don't mind that as we have all our home comforts with us! We have learnt a lesson coming here tho! Is to check towing style route and to read previous reviews which can be very helpful , as none of this is stated on the booking site, when we booked it!

This review is for Bakewell

Joined & booked as a last minute because I had left it too late and my chosen site was full, but so glad I did. It was half the price of where I would usually go and reading previous reviews this is an expensive one. Yes facilities are limited but I always take a portaloo and dry shampoo suffices for 2 nights! Driving my small campervan down the narrow access I did wonder how some larger towing units navigated the typical rural village roads. Beautiful site, only noise to be heard was the local wildlife. Managers very welcoming, pointed out some pitches and let us choose. I have knocked a star off facilities just because the park was fenced off. Looking for my next CCC site with fishing now.
