Why stay here ...

Salterford Dam CL is a family run site set on the edge of Sherwood Forest, famous for Robin Hood and the Major Oak. Catering for adults only we are surrounded by tranquil woodland, a wealth of wildlife and we have a lakeside walk to enjoy. Recreational Fishing is also available upon request. We are a newly established site and a must for those who love nature. The site itself has a wide entrance, secured by gates and a combination padlock. There is a hard roadstone drive leading through a large well maintained grassed area. We have a new toilet and shower block for Ladies and Gents with Lighting, heating, sinks and hot showers available.

We are perfectly located for visiting a host of varied attractions, walking, and exploring the many nearby Towns and villages, including the Historic Minster Town of Southwell. The Nearest Village of Calverton (1.7 miles) is where you will find local shops and useful amenities. There is also a great choice of country pubs and restaurants to try in the area. The attractions close to our site begin with Oakmere Park (1.7 miles) a Golf Course offering two free draining heathland courses, locally known as the all weather course. Go back in time at Papplewick Pumping Station (2.2 miles) with two huge Beam Engines. Highly recommended when in steam, most Bank Holidays. With its cooling pond set in beautiful gardens, Blacksmiths workshop, a tour of the old underground reservoir, a café, and much more. What a great day. Patchings Farm Art Centre (2.4 miles) with exhibition programme, classes, supplies and a café. Ramsdale Golf Course (2.5 miles) Good for Pay and Play.

You can visit any of these great attractions and many more or just relax and enjoy our unique rural retreat in its idyllic setting.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome however because of the nature of our site dogs will need to be exercised in the specific dog exercise area only and we ask you to kindly keep them in the vicinity of the caravan at all other times.

Sadly gone down hill

Salterford Dam CL
Sadly had to change my review as at 8am on 12 october 2021 the day I was going to site till 19th nov bearing in mind have been on this site for a month during fireworks since 2017 and the owners are well aware I am disabled and use a particular pitch so I can hook up water as can no longer carry barrels after a stroke I was told I couldn't have my pitch as someone else on it even though been book since Nov 2020 when i was there last. They also said there was 2 water taps on the pitch which isn't true as went and checked and only vehicle on site was the large motorhome on the pitch i had reserved . I also booked my shopping to be delivered onto site and as dont driver anymore a tow man and 2 people to help me set up as well as care before I go are needed all of which needed paying the owner told me she could move the motorhome but the grass where they were as they had been in site since March was wrecked as I go with my dogs and usually mow the lawn as have a doggie garden a mud bath would wreck my caravan so couldn't accept this it saddens me they do not value regular customers and had been in contact since sept but ignored had I had notice something could have been sorted but 2 hours before I was due on site unacceptable this is the last text I received after 2 hours if texting and phone calls refused Honestly I have had hundreds of bookings this year, do you seriously expect me to remember everything. I don't live there but with my disabled father in Hereford. Once you said that you needed water then I said I could ask them to move or you could go next to them .. same area same side same grass same electric same water ( i didn't answer this text as had already re routed my tow man and arranged to collect shopping and was gutted and disapointed) this is my review prior to this incident after they had had an appalling review i go here every year since 2017 and always found.clean and well maintained.and management on the end of the phone if needed but always.leave you to enjoy your holiday and have a peaceful stay (this was believed to be true at the time of writing but found later things had changed considerably and I sadly can no longer can recommend this site

Return visit ….. Disappointed

Salterford Dam CL
We visited this CL last year and returned this year to find that standards have plummeted. Another CL expecting full payment months prior to arrival, with difficult communication with owners, limited to email only. Upon arrival at the site we found that the pitches had not had the grass cut for some time, and the walk around the lake was extremely overgrown and difficult to negotiate safely, we’re all for conservation but practicality of safety has to be considered uppermost. We found the bins overflowing and remained so for 4 days whilst on site, the water taps were outside those generally available on site and caused multiple problems trying to fill our Motorhome. People arrived without the gate code, although they had booked in with the owners. Other people on site were unable to make payment and were concerned about leaving without being able to contact the owners. Overall we were very disappointed as this site is very pretty and just lacks care, such a crying shame to see such a lovely place being so neglected.

As good as a club site.

Salterford Dam CL
We've just returned from our 5 day stay on this brilliant easy going site. The showers & toilets are more than adequate, up there with a club site. The places to walk your dogs are fantastic & if you're a keen angler then don't miss the opportunity to fish the onsite lake! We can't tell you about the local amenities (that's why we have only given it 1 star) as we didn't venture anywhere due to the pandemic restrictions, we just couldn't be bothered. Definitely give this site a go, you will not be disappointed.

Beautifully peaceful

Salterford Dam CL
Salterford Dam is a lovely site. It’s peaceful and relaxing. Pitches are very big and you can sit and watch the wildlife. We don’t really use the facilities but they are perfectly good and clean. We’ve been many times and love it here to get away and just relax. Easy access.

Relaxing in nature

Salterford Dam CL
Just got back from a two night stay here. What a stunning little site it is too if you like peace and quiet and stunning woodland scenery. Miles of dog walking just off the site on a local plantation and the local chippy delivers. Adequate toilets and showers for the size of the site and it's really peaceful in the evening, even though next to a minor road. The owners clearly have a passion for this site and it shows in the woodland paths that have been created around the lakes. A torch is advisable for the trip to the toilets if it's dark. We will definitely be back to this site.
