Why stay here ...

A great feeling of spaciousness can be found at Clumber Park Club Site, which is settled on 20 acres within a generous 4,000 acres of lush parkland, where you can walk, cycle or ride. The caravan site has a popular play area and enjoys an attractive setting surrounded by woodland. Children will enjoy Clumber Park as it is part of what was once Sherwood Forest and the reminders of the area's most famous resident, Robin Hood are plentiful. Clumber Park was once the estate of the Dukes of Newcastle, and is now owned by the National Trust. The house was demolished in 1938 but there is still evidence of the historic buildings that once stood to be explored. 

The Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre is a mere 10 miles from Clumber Park Club Site and offers many attractions to entertain and educate about this legendary figure. The Major Oak is a must as it is said that he had hidden here, along with his merry men. The Clumber Park food festival, held in the heart of the forest, is a great opportunity to experience culinary delights and sample local beverages. The city of Nottingham is within easy reach of the caravan park.

fantastic clumber park

What a fantastic break, clumber park is a great club site,clean and tidy with plenty to do in the area, the only criticisum is that the phone signal is non exsistant within the caravan site also if you want internet you have to pay for it which I think is a libity! I have stayed on many CLs where internet is free! Plenty of nice walks in the area and is mostly dog friendly

Feels like the middle of nowhere

We went as a family of 5, there is no phone signal and the TV reception intermittent. It rained for the first few days and with kids a porch is recommended (so as to keep the mud at bay). It is suggested you stock up before hand although there is a Sainsbury's a short drive away. Out of season it really is tricky finding anywhere to eat especially in the evenings so be prepared with DVDs and games when the weather is bad. The facilities onsite are clean and the toilet block warm, everything such as recycling, waste and water are all within a short distance. The pitches are spacious and you are literally in the middle of a forest. Great for exploring but be prepared with maps, download any routes or walks before going because theses things are not available at reception. Bikes are a good idea and the site has play area for kids and definitely take a walk into the National Trust Clumber Park as they have planned events and activities during the day. Visit the National Trust Workhouse also, this is great, make sure to get an audio device.

Great location

Just returned from a three night break at Clumber Park. We found the location to be perfect for our needs, with lovely not-too-challenging cycle rides across the national trust estate. We also drove to Sherwood Visitor Centre to see the Mighty Oak and purchase a bow and arrow for our son, who was very excited to be in the land of Robin Hood. All hard standing sites were filled whilst we were there, but the park was still very peaceful with not a sound after it got dark. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and chatty. Absolutely no phone signal and the site wifi was poor to non-existent, but we were warned of that upon our arrival. Some purchased tv cables which they plugged in at the electrical points, but we stuck to our books and board games and had a thoroughly enjoyable few days.

A secluded haven

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Clumber Park. All expectations of a CC site were fully met. Friendly staff. good clean facilities, childrens play area, generous pitches. The site is remotely situated, so the need to use a vehicle to explore the area is required. Definately worth a visit.

Lovely site.......but

We visited Clumber Park Caravan Club Site for the first time at the end of January 2017. The site is well maintained and the facilities are ok. However, I was extremely disappointed that people (in particular women) think it is ok to take their dogs into the showers with them. I appreciate that at this time of year the woodlands are muddy which means dogs and shoes get dirty but there was no consideration for the next person that has to shower in the cubicle. This happened on more than one occasion and so for this reason I have marked the facilities down. I do also believe that within Clumber Park it's very poorly sign posted. Perhaps we'll try again in spring.
