Why stay here ...
Norwood Farm is situated on the Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire Border and is part of the Welbeck Country Estate, in the heart of the Dukeries. The CL site is close to the Archeological way public footpath which leads to Creswell Crags, once home of the Ice Age Hunter. Creswell Crags is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and smaller fissures. Stone tools and remains of animals found in the caves by archaeologists provide evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age between 10,000 and 50,000 years ago.
The Harley Gallery, The Welbeck Farm Shop, The School of Artisan Food, The Dukeries Garden Centre and The Harley Cafe are within walking distance.
The National Trust's Clumber Park and Mr Straw's House are a short drive away in Worksop.

First time visit - arrived Friday bank holiday evening, access is good and easy to find if you know to turn right on the right hand bend down to their site as there isn't a sign. Expecting to see a full field, what a surprise to see we were the only ones we expected more to arrive maybe Saturday morning but no, we had the field to ourselves, it was great! Only trouble is they locked the gate after arrival and we couldn't get back out as it needed a code which we didn't have, upside is good that the site is secure though. We were also lucky with red hot weather. The views are lovely, the site is massive so plenty of space even if it was full. They have installed a toilet and are working towards a shower. We use our own facilities on non-hookup anyway so are never fussed about toilets etc but I realise some people prefer them. The toilet disposal is very good and in the lock-up where the bins are, only downside no recycling. Mel & Dianne are lovely (and so are their dogs Beatrice and Meg), they leave you alone to enjoy your stay, no rules or regulations that you often see on some sites, they even let us pick some plums from their garden, after chatting we found out that the site had only been open around a year so still time to build up, so we wish them good luck. We walked over the fields to the nearby village of Langwith which was only about a mile or so and also to Cresswell, so plenty of walk routes locally. Some of the villages locally are a bit run-down due to the local mine closures but very friendly people. We will definitely be going back even though £10 which is a little high on the non hook-up fees (they are talking about installing hook-up though) but they do have toilet facilities if you need them so I suppose you are paying for that. Brilliant site and fully recommend.
Stayed here last w/e for a 3 night stay. Found the location to be very pleasant, large open field, good grass, fairly level. Spoke to Mel who showed us his canal boat building operation - very interesting. He has made good use of the farm building adjacent to the CL having set up separate taps and drains for fresh/grey water, a good, enclosed elsan disposal and a loo behind the stable door. What can't this guy turn his hand to?! Loads of places to visit nearby and a good cycling area. We will take our bikes next time when, hopefully, the weather forecast will be better. We will return and enjoy this site again sometime soon.
The train line is nearby but not a noisy one, in fact an added attraction we think.
