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.

Plenty of walking and cycling in the area. Numerous places of interest nearby.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Plenty of walking and cycling in the area. Numerous places of interest nearby. For best results obtain an O.S map. National Arboretum easy drive away, as is Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield, and Litchfield City and Cathedral. The site is on the boundaries of Leicestershire, Derbyshire, and Staffordshire, with good a good road network.
