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.

More about 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.

Access and SatNav Advice

Access road narrow and care needed.

Worth Noting

No toilet or showers so you will need suitable facilities in your unit. Some pitches are sloping and chocks may be required, and access road is narrow so care is needed. Poor TV reception – satellite dish recommended. New entrance is approx. 80 metres before old - there is nowhere to turn around beyond.

Eat Local

There are several Farmers’ Markets in the area. White Peak Farm butchery sells locally-sourced meat including game. The George Hotel serves good home-cooked, locally-sourced food.

A lovely location set amongst the rolling hills with rural walks accessed from the site.

This review is for Bakewell

A lovely location set amongst the rolling hills with rural walks accessed from the site. The road in from Youlgreave was extremely tight as our Motorhome is 8.77m long. There are no toilets or showers but we were aware of this from the web page before we booked. The Motorhome service point is easily accessible. The Elson point was clean and private. The hard standing plots appeared level but some of the grass areas are quite uneven and you would need to level your vehicle. Dave the manager took the time to talk to us and answered all our questions about how you become a site warden. We will definitely be returning to do some more walking.

Site was beautiful with rural views from every window of the caravan.

This review is for Bakewell

Site was beautiful with rural views from every window of the caravan. However, access to the site was extremely challenging, the narrow approach road through Youlgreave was a minefield with houses, parked cars and stone walls, making manoeuvring extremely difficult to the point where we were anxious about getting the caravan home, which spoilt the weekend. We are extremely thankful to the motorhome owner who helped us negotiate the narrow street back to the main road.

Great site well spaced out , I read comments about the access yes it is tight through the village and it can be muddy but you are in the Dales and in the country what do people expect the people who moan about this really should not be towing a caravan . We loved it 3 pubs in the village nice walks and fresh air .
