Camp in the heart of the National Forest with walking and cycling from site.

The National Forest covers 200 squares miles, embracing some of Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire. It’s a place to enjoy a variety of activities from forest walks and gentle cycling to horse riding and fishing. It also encompasses numerous attractions from Calke Abbey, the National Brewery Centre, National Memorial Arboretum and right at its heart, Conkers visitor centre offering a Discovery Centre, sculpture trail and an assault course for teenagers. It’s next door to this award-winning attraction that you’ll find our popular Conkers Club campsite.

This well thought out campsite has hardstanding pitches off a large roundabout and plenty of grass pitches for tent campers. The all year round site offers full facilities and has a separate ball game area and an overnight car park. There is an on-site dog walk and plenty of walking and cycling opportunities direct from the campsite including the Ashby World Heritage Trail – a three and a half mile route following the old Ashby and Nuneaton Joint Railway.

Rock pegs required on hardstandings. Show your Club membership card at conkers Visitor Centre to obtain discounted admission.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We use the site on a regular basis to visit family, but we do find that the site is more geared for camping rather than caravans. The hard standing pitches are not big enough for caravan, awning and car without parking on the grass or across the front of caravan. This said the site is in a great location for visiting Conkers with children and there is a footpath from the site taking you to the recently restored Ashby canal.

Ten minute walk from the "Conkers" complex.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Ten minute walk from the "Conkers" complex. Grandkids went "Bonkers"! Unable to use the play area on site due to very sodden ground. This would not be expensive to rectify with a shingle path, instead of grass. Snow on final day made the grandkids visit complete!!

We booked the site because it is open all year and we wanted to try it out before booking for longer. It is a great site for larger units and has plenty of cycling, walking, running and dog walking next to the site. There is also the Conkers adventure centre within walking distance and great for the kids. We have booked a further two stays during the year for longer. I would recommend this site to active families who don't want to travel around with everything on the doorstep for an active holiday.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

The Site managers and assistants had a their work cut out over the festive period when my family visited (3 units) due to the rain and sodden ground to which the hardstandings stood up well with no pitch flooding to my knowledge.If you are keen mountainbikers there is a dedicated centre only two miles from the site with a great family blue run,also for those wanting something more challenging Cannock Chase is within driving distance where there is a stick trail for the kids as well as hard routes for the bikers.
