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.

Arrival was friendly, our request to be away from the play area had been fulfilled.

This review is for Conkers, National Forest

Arrival was friendly, our request to be away from the play area had been fulfilled. Friday night a large party About 12 camped opposite us, in itself not a problem until there talking, which as always grows in volume as the night goes on and on and on well after midnight. Saturday night there was a rock concert at Conker Park, which in itself is not the sites problem, however perhaps if there is to be a concert at the park it could be highlighted on the website. Children on bikes travelling at speed and in the wrong direction. You must go to the "Whale & Chip" shop in the village, magnificent. The haddock was so big and large chips really does mean large, beware! On site dog walk is 10 x 25, um not very big. However there are plenty of areas available for walks. Another minus is that it is under the East Midlands flight path. I must say that without the kids, parties and concert the site is very quite and peaceful, with the odd plane. I would not wish to put people off as the circumstances that came together during our 3 night stay may not happen very often.
