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.

Great stopover when we didn't have our own facilities with us.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Great stopover when we didn't have our own facilities with us. Normally go DA camping but this has encouraged us to try club sites more often, especially for cold weather camping.

We have just returned after just one night stay but are booking up to return in a fortnight.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We have just returned after just one night stay but are booking up to return in a fortnight. Everything about this site was first class. The site manager showed us to our pitch, but noticed there was a dog barking on the next pitch so offered to move us to a quieter corner without us even asking. The site was very peaceful and so accessible for walking and cycling in the National Forest. Definitely recommend this site.

We visited during wet weather and would not recommend grass pitches that quickly become muddy.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We visited during wet weather and would not recommend grass pitches that quickly become muddy. Noticed that several hard standings also flooded badly. Site Staff were excellent. Single toilet block and service points were fine. For us the best thing was the easy access to great walks directly from the site. A visit to the National Memorial Arboretum roughly 20mins drive away is a must as is the Cricketts PH which is a short drive south of the site. Cookers is a perfect base for exploring the area and we will no doubt return (but on hard standing next time!)
