Bakewell site gets final go-ahead

Posted by Greg Throughton

Caravan owners who use a 12v television may be pleased to know that plans to improve the Bakewell caravan site in the Peak District have been approved in the final stages.

Owned by the Camping and Caravanning Club, the site has been given the go-ahead to better its facilities next year by the Peak District National Park Authority, which regulates construction in the area.

John Herbert, chair of the planning committee, told the Buxton Advertiser: "We have decided to go ahead with the planned improvements to ensure that the site has a better appearance and looks less intrusive visually."

He added that the planned landscaping will draw more tourists to the site and the surrounding areas and bring more business to local shops, pubs and restaurants.

The Bakewell site will be open for three months longer each year as a further part of the agreed plans.

Other popular camp sites in the Bakewell area include Rowston House Farm and Knotlow farm.
