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).

Got back yesterday from a great, restful 4 day break at Conkers Site.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Got back yesterday from a great, restful 4 day break at Conkers Site. Russell greeted us with a friendly smile, showed us to our pitch, which we got to pick and explained how the site worked. Checked on us a couple of hours later to make sure we were settled and okay. The toilet and shower blocks were clean and tidy which was great to see. A fish and chip van arrived on Saturday night and we were very happy with our fish supper. I felt both Russell and Gillian made us feel very welcome and chatted freely if we passed each other. We went to the Conkers Discovery Centre next door which was in walking/cycling distance and visited the Moira Furnance play area. This site was family friendly and would highly recommend it and will return. Good luck Russell & Gillian, you are doing a great job.
