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.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

A good base for visiting the National Arboretum, Twycross Zoo, Ashby de la Zouche, Sudbury Hall and Burton Upon Trent as well as Conkers itself. We found it a bit confusing as the site information stated that there was a bistro at the YHA next door, but found out that t was a short walk away. Nice flat hard standings, decent sized pitches, and we had dry weather. Very good all round.

Have just returned from a weekend at this lovely site.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Have just returned from a weekend at this lovely site. We were welcomed by the friendly staff, we booked a hardstanding pitch and honestly there isn't a bad pitch anywhere on the site. The site is very open with good TV and phone reception. The facilities are spotless, with push button showers and the site is well kept. The dog walk on site is only a toilet area really, but, as there is direct access to a vast network of paths and woodland direct from the site,this isn't a problem. There is a play area for the children and Conkers Discovery and Waterside centres are both within a 15minute walk. The youth hostel next door has a cafe and bar (although we haven't tried them as yet.....maybe next time).

A very open site apparently strictly governed by local and Forestry commission rules. Very central for the National Forest the Peak district and a wide swathe of the centre of England.
