Alan Rogers Review

Thornton’s Holt is an attractively laid out, great family camping park at Stragglethorpe, a scattered rural hamlet 3.5 miles southeast of the city of Nottingham. The 155 spacious pitches (93 for touring) are arranged in four separate areas, including one with an orchard setting. With a mixture of grass and gravel hardstanding, most have access to 10A electricity. The owners encourage a friendly farm-type atmosphere with free range chickens, ducks and guinea fowl wandering around the park. You may also encounter Spike and Spartacus, the resident horses, as well as dogs and a cat. Amenities include a heated indoor swimming pool (charged) and a large play area for children.

This is a family run park where there is a warm welcome. The park is well maintained and shrubs and flowers have been planted all over the park. Spring bulbs were much in evidence when we visited. The site is hedged by trees which give shade in some areas, and there are views over the surrounding countryside.


The old style toilet block was being replaced when we visited (May 2015). Open washbasins, showers on payment (20p). Basic facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry. Small shop (1/4-1/11). Heated indoor swimming pool (1/4-1/11). Play area. Bungalow (4 persons) to rent. Caravan storage. Free WiFi on part of site.
