Barlow Country Club: 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.

    Quiet, big sky little light pollution, amazing view of stars and the moon. Numerous beautiful walks with the dog, but most of all the private plot with our own hedged in area for the dog to run. We will definitely make this a regular site, as it is also short drive to some amazing places around Derbyshire.

    Disliked: 

    Irresponsible owners not clearing up their dog Pooh. Local shop miles away, so you have to drive.

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 (10.4 kilometres)
  • Haddon Hall (14.2 kilometres)
  • Bolsover Castle (14.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Hardwick Estate: Stainsby Mill (17.3 kilometres)
