Stunning sunrise over the lakes

General

  • Scenic caravan site set in 50 acres’ worth of lakes and woodland
  • On the edge of the Peak District, a 20-minute drive from Bakewell
  • Dog-friendly and adults-only spot with eight fishing lakes and a café

Flock to 50 acres of wildlife-rich woodland and lakes for an escapade to the eastern edge of the Peak District National Park at Barlow Country Club.

Whether you want to unwind or explore, this Derbyshire destination has you covered – being an adults-only site, it’s a few notches more peaceful than your average park and has tons of space for chilling out or having a wander amid nature.

There’s also a café serving food all day for relaxed meals on base, plus a couple of pubs – and a coffee shop and a gift store – are a 15-minute walk away in the centre of Barlow. Bites can be grabbed in between fly fishing, carp fishing and coarse fishing at the eight lush lakes on site (and lessons are available if you’re new to the sport).

Those keen on kicking it around top Peak District tourist spots while here might like to take the 20-minute drive to stately homes like Chatsworth House and famed villages such as Bakewell. The park is also 25 minutes from Ladybower reservoir for roams around spectacular spots like the Upper Derwent valley.

Walks are, of course, cracking on site as well with 50 acres to adventure around. Guests can also drag the dog along on dawdles as Barlow Country Club is a pet-friendly place.

    Large and private plot.

    Disliked: 

    Difficult to find as no signage. Not a country club as you would imagine it to be. Nothing open. No-one on site. Chemical toilet disposal system v poor and unhygienic especially on these Covid times. The hose dangles down into the waste funnel. No recycling bins.

Large pitches in village with pubs and on bus route10/12/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric asphalt and grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Quiet site in nice village with large pitches.
    We were met straight away after going through the gate by a friendly lady who pointed to the pitch area but then left us saying we could choose our own pitch.
    Pub - The Tickled Trout - a few minutes walk away. Short cut by leaving pitches,turning right and going through a gate which takes you to a small housing estate just off the main road.
    Got bus into Chesterfield by walking the same way to the bus stop on the main road.

    Disliked: 

    Postcode is wrong. Can't understand why this hasn't been updated yet.
    Even following the correct postcode it's not very well signposted.
    Shop and toilet/shower block closed and no tourist info.
    One Elsan point which was a bit "grotty".
    Large pile of dog mess on the grass where the pitches are so this must have been left by a customer's dog. Bad that they couldn't be bothered to pick it up.
    There was a wedding reception in the field next to the pitches and there was loud music playing into the evening but it didn't go on too late.
    Booked a table at the Tickled Trout but the meals and drinks were quite expensive and we didn't think worth the money. It's obviously the going rate though as it's in a popular tourist area and not far from places like Chatsworth. Good job we walked there as the car park soon got full and people were having to park on the street.

Lovely site, unintentionally (hopefully) unwelcoming.10/02/2020

Reviewer's country: United Kingdomrichard g.Confirmed

  • Electric asphalt and grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Wimbledon doubles- court size pitches surrounded by privacy hedges. Bowling green manicured grass surrounds. Wembley size exercise field tended to an excellent standard. Extensive walks on public right of way and around fishing ponds which, again, are superbly maintained. Electric and water individual to pitch.
    Lovely local pubs and 4 miles to all facilities in Chesterfield.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch up giving wrong post code; actual code is S18 not S17.
    Site is difficult to find. Suggest directions modified- past Tickled Trout first right into road marked "unsuitable for HGV", first right at house with impressive topiary, ignoring sign "Strictly Private". Through courtyard to five bar gate top left, marked "Strictly private-fishing clients only". On for 50 yards to turn right into caravan site through narrow entrance between obsolete finger barrier pillars that make entrance tighter than it seems.
    Discovering walks around fishing ponds challenging. Lake side restaurant aimed more at fishermen at the ponds as it is a 10-15 minute walk over a single plank bridge and along the track through two sets of farm gates all signed "private- Fishing access only".
    Shame this excellent site appears to be so uninviting.

  • Liked: 

    Very large well maintained pitches totally private as bordered by conifer hedging.
    Lovely quiet location with beautiful country walks along the fishing lakes and into woodland.
    Very picturesque scenery.
    Lots of tourist attractions within 30 mins drive.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of signage to camp site. Owner said this is on his to do list. Directions given by Pitchup could be clearer. Surrounding roads are very narrow and difficult to turn around with a 9 metre motorhome towing a Fiat 500 so campers with large units beware!

    Shop closed - not sure why.
    Toilet & washing facilities closed due to Covid.
    I felt the cost is overpriced considering all facilities are closed.

  • Electric asphalt and grass touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    What a great site water and electric on each pitch, each pitch is nice and private with minimal levelling up to do.
    The couple that own the site are nice and friendly and just leave you to get on with you stay.
    The walks around the site and fishing lakes are fantastic.
    Great friendly pubs within walking distance.
    All in all a great place to stay.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of signage.

    Just a little note though, when your Sat Nav says you have arrived, look right or left, it looks like you are going onto some ones drive as the signage isn’t very good, LOOK FOR THE OVAL PLAQUE ON THE WALL.

Local attractions

Checking out Chatsworth House (20 minutes’ drive) is a must while you’re here – this stately home is set in vast parkland edged by woodland, craggy hills and heather moors, so it’s an excellent choice for explores on foot. Inside the posh pad is a sizeable collection of art, ranging from Old Masters' drawings to neoclassical sculptures.

Bakewell – yes, home of the tasty tarts – is also a sweet spot for a stroll thanks to having old cottages, tiny alleys and tucked-away courtyards to totter around, as well as a river to roam beside (20 minutes).

If you’re an eager trekker seeking more of a challenge, mosey along the Monsal Trail starting from Coombs Viaduct, a mile south east of Bakewell, and leading 8.5 miles to Topley Pike junction in Wye Dale, passing by Peak District hotspots like Headstone Viaduct, Cressbrook Mill and Litton Mill enroute.

Further on (around 50 minutes) are other popular places for pottering around, like Dovedale valley with its wooded ravine and the 517-metre Mam Tor hill near Castleton, christened one of the Seven Wonders of the Peak by 17th-century philosopher Thomas Hobbes because of its dreamy views.

Must see

  • Chatsworth (10.3 kilometres)
  • Haddon Hall (14.1 kilometres)
  • Bolsover Castle (14.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Hardwick Estate: Stainsby Mill (17.4 kilometres)
