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.

The welcome on site was one of the friendlies we've had.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

The welcome on site was one of the friendlies we've had. The wardens rounded up a couple of fellow campers to help us pitch as the road was narrow and the grass areas incredibly muddy. Toilet block was clean and warm, shower cubicles are on the small side with little room for clothes etc when getting dressed. The laundry was really useful as we were so muddy after our day at conkers! Dishwashing area was useful too although a bit tight for space. The site was quiet at night probably because it was Feb and too cold for people to sit out. We could hear a nearby owl hooting away which was lovely. We walked into Conkers each day which took about 10 minutes. The YHA onsite do food & have a licenced bar. We booked in for breakfast on Sunday morning before leaving. Breakfast was a big buffet full English, cereals, juice etc and fab value �5 adults & �3 children. The site is immaculate if not a little clinical as there are no shrubs/trees on site at all so it did feel a little sparse. The pitches aren't very generous, no room for a car next to the unit as the field was waterlogged. There are some great trails nearby for running/cycling too. We would definitely go again.

A great site with access to many attractions in the area.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

A great site with access to many attractions in the area. The facilities on site were well maintained and the site staff knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Overall a good place to stay, with local facilities a short trip away. We would highly recommend this site for both short stays and as a base for exploring the wider area.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We chose this site as it was a great location for a day at Conkers and also a couple of hours at the Swadlincote Ski Centre.. Introduction at the site was very friendly and helpful and before even unpacking the kids were off to play! The toilet/shower block was spotless couldn't be faulted in any way and always lovely and warm ! Will definitely be returning... !
