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.

Received friendly welcome on arrival & given choice of pitches, which are mostly quite level...

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Received friendly welcome on arrival & given choice of pitches, which are mostly quite level though also quite small! Had to squeeze car across the front of outfit, others used vacant adjacent pitches as was quiet. Also thought the privacy cubicles & shower changing areas on the small side, (& i'm fairly slim!). The facilities block is well maintained & kept clean. Site adjacent to miles of way marked trails, & next door to a Youth Hostel where we had a very nice meal. Decent fish & chips from van which calls each Saturday, though for THE BEST drive to 'The Admiral' in Overseal village! Overall found Conkers staff very pleasant & helpful, though thought the site very open with little planting, just a few sparsely planted saplings.

A very clean well constructed site with numerous hard standings.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

A very clean well constructed site with numerous hard standings. The only downside was the size of the hardstandings (Barely sufficient for car plus caravan). The toilet block was kept immaculately and was well heated. The access to footpaths and cycle tracks directly from the site was much appreciated. This is an excellent site for all ages as the walks were mainly on level ground. A definite site for a re-visit!

Great stopover when we didn't have our own facilities with us.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Great stopover when we didn't have our own facilities with us. Normally go DA camping but this has encouraged us to try club sites more often, especially for cold weather camping.
