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.

Arrived at the site mid afternoon, lovely welcome by the wardens.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Arrived at the site mid afternoon, lovely welcome by the wardens. Found a pitch near the facilities. It was hot as we were pitching so showers were the order of the day afterwards.. Although spotlessly clean the cubicles were rather small, especially for larger people. The shower curtain sticks to your behind when the shower is running, water was a bit too hot, especially on a hot day. Trying to keep the curtain inside the shower tray was a feat in itself. When on holiday we dont like to get up that early but on the first morning the dog in a nearby van was yapping its head off.. second morning the warden was grass cutting near our van and woke us up. Thought to myself "oh well I will nap this afternoon"... and just as I settled down after lunch the grass cutting started again. The yappy dog barked everytime someone walked by the van especially if they had a dog. We did however find a local pub that was brilliant for food and had a beer garden we could take our dogs in. There isnt much to do in the area other than the adventure park but we just wanted a peaceful few days before returning home. I would use this site as a stop off or a weekend as we dont have children, but it would be a good site for families.

Brilliant. No Complaints whatsoever.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Brilliant. No Complaints whatsoever. Travelled with two young children who loved every minute of it. Excellent site, friendly staff and very clean facilities. Plenty of other children around and a very friendly atmosphere. Conkers on your doorstep. The YHA cafe is excellent with very friendly staff. Numerous bike paths suitable for young children right on your doorstep. Thank you!

We stayed this weekend with our one year old and other family members with children.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We stayed this weekend with our one year old and other family members with children. The site was lovely and clean with great facilities as described. We visited conkers activity park on the Saturday and this was within walking distance. The site staff were helpful and friendly. The site shop sold basics and there were shops and takeaways within walking distance. The pitch was soft and drained well. Although it was slightly sloping but this was not a problem. We had a lovely time and would return.
