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).

Arrived around 7pm, without a booking, after realising needed a break on journey home.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Arrived around 7pm, without a booking, after realising needed a break on journey home. Found the most accommodating & helpful owner who booked us in swiftly & was most welcoming, even though it was after office hours. Beautiful looking campsite, even in the rain. Shower block one of the cleanest. All amenities nice & clean. Would have enjoyed staying for longer. Easy to find with helpful signs located on main roads & roads up to site. Thank you. :)

We came for Cycling, but we done more then that.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We came for Cycling, but we done more then that. The Campsite Staff told us when you take in invoice to Conkers National Forest you get a discount. We used it and all my kids said, when can we go again. There is so much to do at and around the Campsite. Also it is just a couple miles away from Thomas the Tankengine Land. I know they got a Campsite as well, but from Conkers you can go easy to Derbyshire (Hights of Abraham) we visited also the National Tram Museum in Crich a must seen for Railway Fans. Or take the Battle line Steam Train, here at Conkers you got so many things to do it is unbelievable how many adventures you can believe here. The CCC got the right people at the Campsite helpfull always with a smile and they keep the place clean and tidy. There is everthing you need: clean toilets, shower a familie washroom and also for disabled person. The Loundry with indoor drying or the free use of the outdoor facilities. A spacious field with playground for Children makes it a perfekt stay. We will come back when we want to see our Friends in the Midlands

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends. We were made to feel very welcome and shown to our pitches. We had pitches together and plenty of space. The toilet blocks and showers were very clean. Even though the site was full it didn't feel too busy. The playground was small but the children enjoyed it. We had bought Groupon vouchers for Conkers. It was ok but very busy and I would not have paid the full amount. We had a good meal at The Railway Inn in Swadlicote. We enjoyed the fish and chips from the van that came onto the site in Saturday night. I would definitely recommend and would visit again.
