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.

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.

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 .

This review is for Bakewell

We just stayed three nights in out motorhome at Bakewell site. Although a little larger than most of our sites it's really peaceful and spread out. The most noise coming from neighbouring cows, sheep and owls. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming, staying open to welcome us who were running late, and the site was very well kept. Bakewell itself was a lovely place to visit but the best day for us was staying onsite and enjoying the bank holiday sunshine.

What a lovely site.

This review is for Bakewell

What a lovely site. Access with a 6m caravan was fine but make sure you go via Mawstone Lane Youlgreave and not the village of Elton. We followed our SATNAV from junction 28 of the M1 via Matlock and found the last or so mile very tight. Set your NAV system for Youlgreave and you'll not go wrong. Entrance to Mawstone lane is opposite the George Hotel in the centre of the village. A bit tight leaving the site too with the caravan on so watch the gate posts. Other than that, well worth a visit if you like a quiet site in a stunning location. No toilets so you need to be self sufficient. Ideal base for discovering Derbyshire. We will definitely be returning soon.
