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).

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

After a long drive from the New Forest, it was very nice to get a warm & helpful welcome from the site managers. What I particularly noticed was how clean & fresh the toilets & showers were. Would recommend & go to this site again. HAPPY CAMPER.

Really clean and tidy site. Nice facilities.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Really clean and tidy site. Nice facilities. Much more intimate shall we say than we are used to. Our jumbo pitch was really close to the neighbouring tents at front and back. Couldn't see what the difference between jumbo and normal size pitches was. Few complaints on the night from fellow campers as there was some kind of party in the youth hostel at the main gates to the park.
