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.

Great for walking and cycling.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Great for walking and cycling. There's no recycling on site which is a shame but understandable given the location. There is a YHA next door where we think you can get food but we didn't have time to try it out. Next time we will stay for longer.

The site is walking distance to the Conkers attraction.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

The site is walking distance to the Conkers attraction. Club members get a discount on entry which for a family of four means children get in free. Also close to Rosliston Forestry Centre and its woodland walks and activities. Burton on Trent is also quite close by car and has an excellent Leisure Centre. Nearby Swadlincote has a very good Wetherspoons - very child friendly.

We had a good week at easter. Really clean site, great level pitches.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

We had a good week at easter. Really clean site, great level pitches. The site is quite open, when really windy. Really good walks and cycle routes from the site entrance. The site could improve a little though. There is no recycling on site and the water pressure for the shower in the family room is really poor but apart from that a really good site and would stay there again and recommend the site
