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).

Whether you want to relax and let the children meet new friends and play all day long.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Whether you want to relax and let the children meet new friends and play all day long. Or whether you want to venture off site and visit an attraction or two, or wander through the forest paths or along re canal. Simply enjoy! Swadlincote and Ashby de la zouche are nearby and the local coop is within a couple of miles too, the youth hostel for ice cream, beer and a well priced small menu is just at the entrance .

Brilliant centre for families of mixed ages.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Brilliant centre for families of mixed ages. Within 15 miles there are facilities for skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing (Tamworth Snowdome) swimming, cycling, orienteering and walking. Site staff were very helpful and arranged for all of our family, in four units, to be on adjacent pitches, even though it was May Bank Holiday weekend and school half-term. We've had a memorable holiday.

Our first time at a CCC site and we are so impressed! Easy to find, lovely staff (who even got us something from the neighbouring village shop as they were going!), spotless loo block, huge pitch and a woodland walk straight from the gate. You can even walk to conkers waterside centre in 10 minutes. We'll definitely be back!
