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.

Numerous man made and natural local attractions to cater for all in the area.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Numerous man made and natural local attractions to cater for all in the area. Stayed here primarily to visit the National Memorial Arboretum, which is well worth a visit. Family attraction of Conkers nearby. Lots of walks / cycling in the area. The site had sufficient showers / privacy cubicles and toilets. MHS point, additional chemical disposal point and all the usual laundry facilities, dish washing facilities. The site is very utilitarian and lacks any character, although the surrounding countryside and trees make up for the lack of them on the site. I would return and I would recommend it.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We've used this site a few times and it's only 10 minutes from home! The environment is lovely, with various walks, cycle paths, canals and, of course, Conkers. Therefore, great for any type of visitor. There is a modern Youth Hostel next door, which can be used for food and a bar, but you need to check in advance whether they can accommodate you. Food is fine. Pubs in Moira are disappointing but you can walk to Donisthorpe to the excellent Halfway House pub, but you should book for food, as they get very busy (tells you all you need to know). Ashby, with it's shops, pubs and restaurants is a 5 minute drive away. The couple who run the place are very polite and helpful. There's also a Fish & Chip van which comes around on a Saturday evening. Nice, quiet and relaxing

We love this site. I think we have now been 4 times.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We love this site. I think we have now been 4 times. It's very easy to locate, close to towns if shopping required. The site is well pitched, friendly wardens. The toilets and showers are lovely and clean. There is the Youth Hostel on site to use if you should wish to go for a drink, again very friendly. We took our Granddaughter 3yr old with us this time and she loved it. The site is close to Conkers Activity Centre which is ideal for any age. We would definitely recommend this site to anyone.
