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).

The site was clean and well kept.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

The site was clean and well kept. The facilities were good and staff friendly, although could imagine when busy would struggle to shower. The only annoyance was that the bins were right outside the campsite I don�t know if this is for the convenience of the wardens because they don�t have to empty bins. This is the first site I have been to where there are no bins at the waste water and water station.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

First night of stay was ok sleeping wise, park is quiet and peaceful so sleeping quality was fine. However was disappointed at the advertised dog walk is a small paddock and not a proper walk so will have to go further afield with my German shepherd to effectively exercise him. We decided to use the family room to shower for myself and my little girl (3) and this is where all the issues started. The actual shower itself isn't strong what so ever so washing shampoo out your hair is difficult. And you have either frozen cold water (till the heat kicks in) and then scalding hot and not able to change it. It was so hot it made my little girl cry and she now doesn't want to shower, and to be honest IL be showering elsewhere from now on as I advise you all to do so. I'm used to shared facilities water pressure to not be strong like home but honestly here is a joke. Also the blocks close between 11 and 2 so everyone has to use the family room as a general toilet. Definitely not the best campsite I have been too and it's not exactly cheap either. Will NOT be back.

Returned again to this site for very good reasons.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Returned again to this site for very good reasons. The site is well laid out, very well maintained and spotless. The facilities are always kept clean by the wardens to a very high standard despite attempts by the weather to hinder them. A very busy weekend as you would expect on a Bank Holiday in the middle of school holidays. But we never felt crowded or were disturbed by anything. In fact there was an excellent atmosphere all round. We had a problem with the electrics in our van and the wardens were superb in assisting us to locate the problem despite being extremely busy themselves. They called in help to ensure that our weekend was not spoilt by the problem. First class service.

On arrival, easy check in and showed a variety of pitches we could use.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

On arrival, easy check in and showed a variety of pitches we could use. Chose near the facilities. The site was extremely clean and well kept. More lively than we are used to but enjoyed our stay. The only downside would be the toilet block, for the size and the number of people on the site, the one block is not enough. Saying that the wardens kept them clean
