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

Its idyllic location near the pretty village of Youlgreave in the Peak District National Park offers a true back to nature camping experience.

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.

Nice clean quite site, no facilities or TV reception but we knew that before booking.

This review is for Bakewell

Nice clean quite site, no facilities or TV reception but we knew that before booking. Deffinately approach from youlgrave and be carefull about sat nav directions if towing or motorhome. Even entering from youlgrave looks bad until you've done it but we didn't have any problems. Great walks and pubs with local ales. Unless you go for hard standing the site is quite sloped so you may need chocks and blocks if your limited for pitch choice. Overall we had a good stay.

This review is for Bakewell

Our children grew up here when only one single water tap, and eggs from Hopping Farm,�The Swing� and the fields were here. Now, we reconvene when in Derbyshire and find Dave Russel and Deputy Ron Ryder genuinely outstanding representatives of what the C&C Club meant to us. Sorry that 3 years means the Club rules make them move on, Dave back to where he and his wife started out in the Borders, and Ron also told his new destination. We will miss them and the patient, personal, warm and professional work for the Club and us as members of xxx years. And, the hill down from Youlegreave is not as bad as it’s reputation, at least not when caravan is Abbey Aventura and 4motion Tiguan. Good luck to both and welcome to the new team for next year 2019.

This is the jewel in the crown of the camping and caravan club.

This review is for Bakewell

This is the jewel in the crown of the camping and caravan club. Well run, really tidy welcoming site with panoramic views and excellent walking. Riddled with footpaths inc. Limestone Way. Plenty of miles cycling or strolling on disused railways or just relax in the heart of the beautiful Peak District. Great pubs to hand with good ales, good food and good prices. Ok - no facilities - but to caravanners & motorhomes its no problem. Campers just need a portaloo to get by, lots do. Access is not as bad as some make out. If you follow your satnav you may come unstuck so always enter from Youlgrave end and its no problem. It can appear a tad daunting on approach but everyone gets there and gets back out again - there isn't a graveyard of abandoned caravans so it isn't anywhere near as bad as some reviews would have you believe. It's well worth the effort and I promise you you will get a wonderful surprise. A++++++++++++++++++

Spent 7 nights at this large quiet remote site. When I went no facilities, but this was made clear on the website. Extremely basic, but the beautiful surrounding countryside made up for the lack of facilities.
