"Explore the beautiful Peak District National Park from our Bakewell club site. "
Explore the Peak District National Park from our Club Site at Bakewell, Derbyshire. A real away-from-it-all campsite, its lack of a toilet and shower block makes it perfect for those looking to escape the crowds - even in high season. This is beautiful walking country - whatever your age or ability. Please note that this site has no toilet or showers, so you will need suitable facilities in your unit.

No calls after 8pm please.
I would like to pass on to you a situation where one of your wardens on one of your sites went the extra mile to assist Members on his site during a difficult time caused by snow.
We came to the Bakewell Site and in my particular case it was just to be here 2 or 3 days. The snow arrived on the site and gradually it went worse. This made it difficult for 4Wheel Drive Vehicles and not safe for lesser vehicles to enter and leave site safely.
Whilst on site we were warm and safe in our caravan but there was no guarantee that if we left the site and went down the road we may have been unable to keep going and we may not have been able to return to the site so we sat it out.
Site Warden, Steve Moat, heard from a number of campers that they were running out of prescription medications due to being unable to drive off the site due to the weather conditions. Steve went to all on site to check how they were and he used his 4x4 to take them to the Doctors after having contacted the Surgery.
Such action was not expected and the fact that Steve took the initiative in this made it all the more appreciated by everyone that he helped.
I feel that Steve went that extra mile to care for the members on the site in customer care and this is not the norm in this current world. Such actions should be applauded and recognised.
Please pass our thanks on to Steve and all your staff on your Bakewell Site for going the extra mile. It is appreciated.

We had a lovely stay and the site has a very friendly atmosphere - both the visitors and the staff are obviously happy to be there.
There are lovely walks for everyone straight from the site and a good pamphlet is available from the Warden giving details of enough walks locally to leave the car alone for at least a week.
Local takeaways deliver to the site if you are feeling lazy!
The shop is decent with basic goods and more, and you can hook up to site provided Sky TV if you want to stay in and order a takeaway as a treat.
We will definitely return.

Having been to the site on other occasions, we returned on 21/03 the weather for the next day was forecast to be snow, we could never have imagined how much snow there would be. Over the next few days the access road to the site became blocked with drifting snow, People with 4x4 land rover type vehicles had a small chance to get through.
We where booked on until 25/03 however we both are on medication and only took enough to last until Tuesday, the site manager Mr S Moat took us and 3 or 4 other members to the doctors in the village using his 4x4 vehicle so we could become temporary patients and obtain prescriptions. We consider the manager and his assistant to have been most helpful and went above the call of duty during our enforced stay. This shows the type of calibre of staff the club employs we would definitely recommend this site and we will go again

Just spent Easter weekend at this site.We found the manager and his wife were extremely friendly and welcoming.The site is very well maintained and the scenery is beautiful and perfect for long walks with the dog.The approach to the site is a little challenging but well worth it.We will without a doubt visit this site again.Thanks to the staff for all your help,look forward to our next visit.

Bakewell. Campsite opened up on 21 st March all was well with the campers looking forward to a new season during the evening is began to snow and when we opened the blinds of the caravan the following morning we found 11 " of snow ha.d fallen and it was still snowing relentlessly.Steve Moat the holiday site manager visited every caravan on the site to make sure everyone was ok or if they need assistance. The site roads and lanes up to the village were impassible in normal cars and difficult even for 4 x 4's .By Monday the 25th a few worried campers expressed there concerns to Steve that they would soon run out of prescribed medication Steve being the caring person he is decided to give a lift up to the medical centre in the village Steve also recognised that campers were running out of food supplies and offered to take people to Matlock to pick up provisions. May I say that this service and the doctors visit was all done in his own vehicle. It was up and above the call of duty and would definitely not been in the job description. What a hero!

What a week snowed in on the site. Well done to the site wardens for going over and above their job description. We arrived Thursday 21st March and woke up Friday morning to find we were totally cut off. The wardens made sure we were all ok for food etc even going to the doctors and shop with their 4wd. We finally managed to escape on Sunday evening for a visit to the local pub. They are now busy towing cars off site as we are still snowbound. Well done and thanks.!

We have enjoyed 6 holidays at Bakewell for the past 7 years. Very good in every way. I read with interest the comments about access to the site and would say if folks find it a struggle to tow /drive their units to the site then they need to re sit their driving tests and take additional training. come on people ,dont waste time writing a review if you cant even drive.

Just returned from a week on this site, the managers were friendly and a great help when needed thanks.
The site is very clean and well looked after and the views from the site are superb.
The only downside is the approach to the site through the village its quite steep and narrow with cars parked on either side, then just as you think you have cracked it you come to a potholed unmade track.

This is the first time I have visited this site. the site is fine.
The access down through the village of Youlgreave is very steep also numerous residents cars parked, this is before attempting the narrow unmade road up to the site, in my opinion is totally unsuitable for anyone towing a caravan
The wardens are the best. We found difficulty getting our motorhome up on to our ramps so Steve and Wally made us some that worked perfectly!!!!
Thanks guys xx
Great site with very friendly staff, and fantastic views BUT part of the lane just before the site is very rough - why? as the tarmac before and after is fine - what has happened to this bit inbetween?! Also access is down a public winding, narrow lane with cars parked either side. We left the site at 10.45am to go back up the lane and yet we met a car and caravan coming down!
For H&S surely it would be best for units to be told that they cannt come to the site until after 12noon and those leaving have to leave before12?

Thanks to Steve and Wally for their help and advice when the spring on the car fell off on. They were quick to recomend Youlgrave garage. The car was booked for repair the next day despite the bank holiday approaching. Car was fixed and holiday was continued without being spoilt. We feasted on home baked scones bought on site and enjoyed the rest. This site is one of our favourites and will revisit soon.

A warm welcome on arrival and offered assistance which was nice even though it wasn't needed. The weather was attrocious -the rain was pushing the drain caps off in the road outside, but, the site is well drained so we had no problems. Lots to see and there is even an approved swimming spot in the river nearby (it was flowing a little too quickly on our visit! I will definitely be going back to this site.
DATE STAYED: June 2012
Good well run site and Steve the manager is first class but I would not recommend access at weekends. Very difficult to get through the very narrow village access road. Full of cars OK during the week when the locals are at work.
Never again weekends.
DATE STAYED: July 2012
A lovely peaceful site. One of the best visited. Great for walking. Lots of local attractions nearby. Great value for money. Site access was a bit tricky but would suspect locals don't help with parking. Will definitely be returning for longer visit.
Beautiful secluded site along a narrow, potholed lane out of Youlgreave. Basic facilities only, but very well maintained and site and pitches immaculate. Wonderful walking from the site (so you don't need to negotiate the lane too often). Youlgreave is a 20-30 minute scenic walk from the site along the river.

Bakewell is a lovely site and this was the fourth year I have been for the spring bank holiday week. This year being a week later I knew the weather wouldnâ€™t be so good and from experience of the area if itâ€™s wet its wet. Despite this, every year I will endure, with great trepidation, the access road to and from the site with narrow hilly roads and walkerâ€™s cars parked everywhere because the site is worth it.
However this year, I was disappointed to be met with seemly inconvenienced mood of the site manager that we arrived on bank holiday Monday afternoon half way through the Jubilee party. Furthermore, I had booked this site 2 months in advance, where choice was at an premium, only to find when we got there there was very little opportunity for a pitch that didnâ€™t have running water through it.
Thirdly, I wasnâ€™t aware that site had made improvements which meant there was better choice of hard standing areas which are needed when itâ€™s wet, wet.
Despite, this yearâ€™s visit being a bit disappointing I would still go again to this site.
Third visit in 10 months to this fantastic,well kept treasure of a site. In these days of austerity
These are exactly the type of sites the club should be developing. Superb location, low facilities and sensible fees. Thank you Steve and Wal
We have visited this site 6 or 7 times. We were so impressed we even joined the camping caravan club. Steve makes everyone welcome & nothing is too much trouble. He lent us a battery when we had a problem before an electric hook up became free. The site is well away from the main road & some have reported difficulty passing the narrow access road. We are new to caravanning & have never had a problem. Our van is 6' wide & 17' long.
A lot of work has been done to improve the site for this season. Notably more hard standing pitches & gravel roads around the site. This is a fabulous site if you like peace & quiet, great views, & lots of walking or cycling.

this was our first time on a club site and after i messed up the online booking, steve (manager)sorted it all out and put us on a lovely pitch. access is a bit tricky in the village but we had no problem in or out.had tea in the George which was very nice. a proper campsite in gorgeous surroundings. will definately be going again.
Reception was very friendly and helpful and we were guided to our pitch. This site was perfect for us; very private even though it was Easter and it was busy. We only wanted fresh water and disposal and both of those were conveniently close by. The site is only a mile walk away from Youlgreave along a lovely country lane which is moderately hilly for those who wish to keep fit. It is located a few miles from Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock with plenty of things to do and see. We only stayed over Easter but we would have found enough things to do to stay a week or more.

just got back and have to say the site is lovely. Very thankfull for the hard standing tho, had a wonderfull time dispite the weather (rain) with a trip out to the bakewell food market.The chip van was a bonus and and the option of the shop is nice too. This is an allround good clean and well looked after site and with alittle imagination there is lots of fun to b had there.
The only criticism i have and is only been a problem due to the weather is that there was no stone or paved path to the fresh water point off the main roads round the site which means we had to get alittle mucky when getting water other than this it was a very pleasant peacefull weekend and we plan to return soon. The sie is a credit to the wardens.
We stayed here for two nights, the first site we have stayed on without a toilet block. The site is very picturesque and kept very clean and tidy. When we arrived we had a choice of two pitches, which were both quite boggy, hence we did get on the pitch, but then couldn't get off to replenish water tanks, so with no toilet block, we had to limit showers, etc and general water usage. We also couldn't get up on our chocks so weren't level either. This may well have been partly our fault in not being prepared, but I did expect that we would be able to drive on and off the pitch to replenish the water (we have a motorhome so do not carry aquaroll and watermaster). We did have to pitch pretty close the next unit too, we were probably just about 3m from their awning, this was to avoid a slope which was even wetter. We had to be pulled out at the end of our two day stay. Anyway all that it probably just bad luck, bad weather, etc.
The site had a nice playpark for the kids and I liked the way children could roam pretty freely on the site and just play. The walk into Youlgreave wasn't too bad, (quite steep on the last bit) but we couldn't get a newspaper there! Bakewell, which is very pretty, was about a 15 minute drive away, but with easy parking for a motorhome. The site is very peaceful and easy to walk you dog from the site.
The only other thing I found odd, was that waste(grey)water had to be disposed of by a tree or wall. I know grey water can be used to water your garden, etc, but it felt a little odd on this scale (what is it 100 pitches doing it).
If you want a quiet, peaceful break in lovely scenery this site is ideal, but I would imagine you wouldn't encounter some of the problems we had if you went in the summer!
My dad is the manager of this site and i have visited on many occasion. i am so proud of him as he has dedicated himself fully to it and made the site an amazing and beautiful place to stay. Him and his wife paula will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and will do anything to help you. This along with their dedication has made them many friends along the way. I would reccomend this site to anyone the surrounding area is stunning with plenty to do. Happy Camping!!
The increased hard standings and improved roads have much improved the site. Please don't modernise this fantastic site any more!

Lovely site! Lots of walks acheivable for families with young children too! (buggy's may be a problem) Can purchase simple step by step directions from the shop for only Â£1. We were able to go to the village without having to walk 5 children along the narrow lanes. Lots of fields for the kids to explore! The dog walk was a little dissapointing as there is no area on site to allow the dogs off lead but as the walks across the fields are right from the enterance of the camp site, provided there arent cattle grazing then the dogs ran free here. 7.30pm on Saturdays a fish and chip van parks outside reception for the campers to purchase their food- this was very popular and tasty too!! The park area is very simple but with a little imagination our children managed to still entertain themselfs with it. The shop sells basic items and fresh cakes that they make themselfs- didnt get chance to sample the scones but the smell was delicious! The managers nephew was very friendly and played lots with our children and is a true credit to his uncle. A small basic camp site that we intend to return to as soon as we can!!

This was our first camping and caravanning club site visit since joining the club. We had a brilliant welcome by Steve and the site itself was lovely - a perfect base for a weekend of walking in the peaks. We had opted for a grass pitch and needed the leveling chocks, but it was sorted without problem. there is also wood available from the site shop/reception to help if needed. the available facilities were brilliant, but this site does not have any toilets which may put some people off - motorhomes and caravans were all we saw on the site.
Unfortunatly, the site access was another matter entirely. The road from Youlgreave to the site is steep and littered with parked cars. You really should only approach Youlgreave from the A6 side when towing or in a large motorhome and the turn itself will benefit from a CCC sign in my opinion. getting down the lane to the site was one thing, coming back up again on the sunday is another - it was an ordeal! Steve suggested to leave either before 10am or after 5pm on a sunday as lots of day walkers park on the lane. I also didnt get the impression the locals went out of their way to park with caravan/motorhome traffic in mind. a bit of a shame to be honest considering how nice the site is.

We have been going to Bakewell for several years now, so with the problems of site access down the dreadful road to the site from Youlgrave Church we must be very content once we are there. Steve and now Kelvin are so helpful and make one feel that you are all part of a family and matter! the site is kept so beautiful and a credit to them ( and Paula!We have got to know several of the seasonal pitch holders now and they have become friends too as are the staff!!

Superb site. The staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble. Steve, Paula & Kelvin are always happy to help & give good advice.

I will definately be back many more times.

This has to be one of the very best sites for walking in England. Its set in the most quiet secluded position with footpaths in every direction.
The site has wonderful views over valleys and farmland. Its many pitches are maintained to the highest standard I`ve come across and the wardens work constantly to maintain as near to perfection as you will get anywhere.
Steve, Kelvin and Paula work so well together and cannot do enough to help you. They provide a very well stocked shop with very keen prices and also offer a Satalite Dish for a nominal fee of Â£3.00 per day as TV reception is poor.
If you want a quiet peaceful break this is the location for you. I have been 3 times in the last month and plan to revisit again and again.
In our two years so far as motorhomers this is far the best site we have been to - we enjoyed our stay at the beginning of July so much that we have just booked again for the end of July! Secluded and peaceful - we couldn't hear even distant traffic noise - and set in some of the most beautiful countryside in England. Most of all, the friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. The lack of toilet and shower block *might* deter some - but we found it no inconvenience at all to use our on board facilities
Was a little worried with access after reading the earlier reviews. I followed the directions as given by the site. Only tricky bit is a narrow road where cars park either side. Unfortunately I met a courier van coming the other way so had to reverse, not easy with no sensors or camera fitted yet. Still, in the end we did manage to get past each other. It then turns into a track as you approach the site.
Most hard standings are level, the grass may require chokes. No toilets or showers.
However, lovely views and very helpful staff. No TV reception, but you can hire a sky dish for Â£3 a night, which we did and that was great.
Local indian take away delivers to reception, they even let you choose a DvD from blockbuster and bring it with them!
Well priced as well, and with the lack of toilets not many kids around (upto you if you take that as a good or bad thing).
I had a nice stay, and will defiantly be coming back.

the staff are great,and cant do anough for you.
The people who camp there are really friendly.We hope to see some of them when we return.
fantastic scenery,and three pubs in walking distance.
A tranquil site not regimented like some .we cant wait to go back.
Steve and his team made all made us very welcome and accomodating to a choice of pitch. We are new to caravanning and we recieved good advice. The site is set in a beautiful and tranquil location and kept very neat and tidy. There are lovely walks straight from the campsite including to nearby Youlgrave with its impressive church and 3 welcoming hostelries. As this is particular favourite of ours we would like to see the season extended.

It's a superb place to have a seasonal pitch. Steve, Paula and Kelvin not only welcome you but regularly walk the site to talk to everyone (Other site teams please take note}.There are so many walks from the site you can enjoy a week there and not use the car once.The only down side is the lack of seasonal pitches(You have to apply early and HOPE)Why the club doesn't open the site all year round is a mystery. Members want to come and stay on this well kept and run site.Full marks to Steve & co.

This is our second season at Bakewell on a seasonal pitch,basically we came once and didnt want to go home. The site manager and his wife are two of the most friendliest,helpful and most welcoming people,they have always got time for their campers/caravaners. The site is at all times immacculate and has even improved from last season. The only down side to Bakewell is the length of their season we would like it all year round and would certainly visit through the winter also there are some beautiful spots on the camp site that I think could benifit some hard standing pitches. Everyone we have introduced to Bakewell absolutley love it and I think it has alot to do with not only how beautiful it is but how well run and maintained it is. This camp site is an absolute credit to the club. A big thank you to the site manager and his wife.
Immaculately kept site in a stunning location.Superbly improved and maintained by current manager Steve and his wife Paula.
Cracking little Gem of a site
Situated at the top of Bradford dale.
Nice walk along the river bradford to Youlgrave where there are 3 friendly pubs offering food take a torch for the walk back and put your dogs on a lead at the campsite end of the dale as the banks are full of rabbits and sheep.
Wardens are great friendly and accommodating and the 3rd field is excellent although it is slopping you can pitch where you want so long as your 6m away from your neighbours.
if you pitch at the top of the field the views in the evening with a sunset are great
A indian takeaway even delivers to the site if you want to put the BBQ away
Excellent base for exploring the derbyshire dales and the dark peak.

This was our first trip in a caravan, and we absolutely loved every minute.
The staff at the site (Steve and Kelvin) were absolutely magnificent. Being our first time, they were more than helpful in giving us a few pointers and making us feel welcome. our van needed a bit of work with the electrics and they put us in touch with "the caravan doctor" who was reliable and his work was really good. We now have running water in the van!
the site itself is just perfect for getting away from it all. Very well maintained and the facilities are superb (shop, wifi, sky rental, the service from staff inlcuding homemade scones!). The local village, about 1 mile walk, has two children's play parks, 3 pubs, a grocer and a quality butchers shop. And for those who are squeemish about the lack of a toilet block, it has clean public toilets near the village hall!
It was a fantastic trip and we will be visiting the site again. Thanks to Steve and Kelvin!

We have been coming to this site for the past 3-4yrs and can only say how pleased we are to return again and again!
During the past 3 years the site has been much improved by the current managers who are very friendly and helpful (maybe a benchmark for other sites!!). The area is outstanding with country walks all around and good shopping facilities within a few miles.
Added to this the village with 3 pubs and lovely locals it all makes for a very satisfying stay. We would recommend this site to any of our friends safe in the knowledge that they would get a warm welcome and have a great stay. Just one point ..why no winter seasonal pitches?? maybe a thought for the future!
DATE STAYED: May 2011
We have been coming here for the last 5 years, however during the last 3 seasons the site has been dramatically improved to its current superb standard. The only thing we can fault about Bakewell is that its not open all year round as we would continue to visit all year.
our first visit to this club site, we only booked on the morning of our arrival and found no problems doing so.
the drive to the site is good until you get into the village of youlgreave, a little narrow at times!! we were unsure if the turning down by the church was the right one(a sign post at this turnng would have helped)we made the mistake to continue through the village and follow sat nav along the very narrow lanes to approach the site from the other direction(not good T5+23"caravan)but once there a great site just to relax and unwind,clean and tidy through out nice pitch plenty of space,
SUITABLE FOR: Older couples,Peaceful break,Younger couples
My wife and I have just had another fantastic weekend away at this very clean well run site. The staff always make everyone feel very welcome and are always there to help. The only problem we have with this site is that it is not open all year round, even if only for winter seasonal pitchs, as this would be ideal for us.
This site is so good we went back two weekends on the trot. The walks from the site are great and the managers have put together a local guide which is really good, the satellite TV service and shop is also good if you need it. The views are fabulous. The only thing that could be improved is a sign at the end of the lane as you turn by the church, because it is very narrow and with a caravan you think that cannot be right. It is very narrow and tight with cars parks along the way. For longer rigs its very tricky. But I have to say when you get on site its worth it. But that sign would make all the difference just to sure you are on the right track. I would not have wanted to turn the rig around in that lane !!!
A lovely, peaceful site that benefits from lovely views and wonderful walks direct from your caravan door.
Water taps & Toilet Disposal facility all clean and well presented.
The only caution has to the tight village road, particularly for those towing & larger motorhomes.
The lane is tight (particularly if people have carelessly parked) and is on a hill. I had to stop & do a hill start with the caravan on the back - a little marginal for the clutch!!
If you're a nervous driver/tower, then perhaps consider an alternative location.
This was our second year at Bakewell and it won't be our last.
The staff are really friendly and helpful, making it a pleasure to stay on the site. The assistant manager deserves particular praise for helping to set-up a temporary power supply near the site office so I could use my laptop to access an important email. Many Thanks.
We are used to temporary holiday sites, so for me the facilities are 5 star.
Amazing site, with a very warm welcome from the staff when you arrive, the drive to the site was great until you got to the last 2 miles. We had mm's to spare when passing vehicles parked in the village, didn't think we were going to make it to the site. I think had there been an opportunity to turn around, then my other half would have done. This is the only reason we won't be going back, which is a shame as the site had lovely views and because no toilet block very few noisy tents.
This is the friendliest site we have stayed on the manager here generates the
atmosphere to everyone regular or new,always willing to help and put himself
out.You always feel you are returning home.The country side is second to none, lots of walks bakewell ,monsal head lathkildale are just a few of the places within 15 min drive well worth a visit . very peaceful well kept site also well stocked shop. one of the few sites the manager and wife take time to walk round the site and chat to members.
A very nice site to birdwatch, and to go for walks and relax,and to see the peak district.
Only thing is that can put you of is getting to it, by the narrow road, by the church. as they park all over but once you have got passed that, and reach the clubsite,it makes up for it. I would go again.

A wonderful secluded, friendly site with excellent wardens.
Have stayed numerous times and this is probably our most favourite site. Lovely walks directly from the site with lots of attractions within a reasonable travelling distance. No toilet facilities but not a problem - in fact this is probably what keeps this site perfect. Village of Youlgreave within easy walking distance with 3 good pubs and lots of friendly local characters.
