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).

Nice well presented site, the wardens were welcoming and could not do enough for us. Ideal location for the National Forest, enjoyed a visit to Moira Furnace, and walks along the canal, handy Co op just down the road if needed.

Very good site, well run by a team of experienced wardens. The site is well laid out and the facilities are fair. Local attractions include Conkers, the National Park for walking and cycling. Short distances to Bosworth, Twycross Zoo and many other Midland's attractions.

Just had an amazing short break at Conkers. The site is well managed, maintained and clean.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Just had an amazing short break at Conkers. The site is well managed, maintained and clean. Russell & Sue work so hard around the site and are a credit and great asset to the Camping & Caravan Club. The site was fairly busy but never had to queue for the shower or wash up area. Reception shop has a few basic items to puchase, Co-op very near and bigger supermarkets a short drive away. Excellent dog walks along the canal to Moira Furnace. YHA next door to site with a licensed bar which was appreciated after a long walk in the sun! The military Arbroteum is a short drive away and a well worth visit. Highly recommended camp site, we will be returning. ??
