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.

If you'd like to go glamping then Conkers Ready Camp is the perfect choice. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Facilites let this site down.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Facilites let this site down. Toilet and shower block an up market porta cabin, possibly because of planning regs in the national forest. Dish washing room very small and cramped for the size of the site. Wardens very accommodating and Friendly and maintain what they have to a very high standard. Personally feel camping club sites are falling behind what you can get for your money facilites wise on private sites.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

When we arrived we paid and had set up our motorhome and awning and thought that the price of £69 for two nights without electricity seemed a bit steep, however we didn't have an itemised receipt so I went to query it and we had been overcharged by £28!! Thank goodness we checked, thankfully after grappling with the computer the staff finally managed to refund my debit card. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay on this pleasant site.

We arrived early but were still allowed to pitch. the pitch was flat & well maintained.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We arrived early but were still allowed to pitch. the pitch was flat & well maintained. The toilet block was small for the size of the site but always clean. It is a quiet site which is ideal for walking without using the car however the downside to this is that you have to use the car if you want to find a pub/restaurant in the evenings. You can't always have your cake & eat it! Overall we really enjoyed our stay but would be a little concerned how the toilet/shower block would be regarding cleanliness & availability if the site had been full?.
