Alan Rogers Review

While staying at Conkers, National Forest Camping & Caravanning Club Site, you will be in the heart of the National Forest with walking and cycling from the site. This well thought out site has hardstanding pitches off a large roundabout and plenty of grass pitches for tent owners. The all-year-round site offers full facilities and plenty of walking and cycling opportunities direct from the site, including the Ashby World Heritage Trail, a three-and-a-half-mile route following the old Ashby and Nuneaton Joint Railway. The National Forest covers 200 squares miles, embracing some of Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire. It is a place to enjoy various 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. The site has 100 grass or hardstanding pitches (some seasonal). Most have electric hook-up. There are also 5 Safari tents available for hire.

Non-members are welcome and may join on-site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
