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.

Charming Clumber Park

We chose this site for a 3 night break as we are new motorhomers ( we have owned a trailer tent and caravans before) and CMC members. Previously we have tended to prefer cl sites mostly for the peace and quiet . However ,I can cheerfully say “what a lovely site ,well managed in a charming location.” The wardens were very friendly and helpful as were the fellow “campers “ . Pitches were generously spaced and clean. Facilities were a little dated but maintained in a good condition and kept spotlessly clean. It was lovely to see children enjoying themselves riding bikes especially after lockdown . We liked the ease of access and all the beautiful walks from site. Will definitely visit again.

First Clumber Park Visit

First visit to Clumber Park and the booking in system couldn't have been easier, although we arrived around 1.30pm so there was a bit of a queue. Picked a hard standing site and there were no issues. The band system required for toilet block generally worked well, only kids seemed to not follow it (or didn't understand). Facilities were spot on considering the additional requirements. Was slightly disappointed that the play area was closed, although we understand the reasons why. This did mean kids were zooming about on scooters and bikes throughout the day! Our kids are too young for bikes etc so did mean there wasn't as much to occupy them as we had hoped. But with loads to do in a 20 minute radius during the day it wasn't much problem. Will consider returning in the future!

School Holidays - Beware the Bikes

Firstly - Thank you to the lovely wardens who greeted us with genuine warmth and worked tirelessly to maintain the facilities during these unprecedented times. The site was well kept, with close cut grass and had evidently been re-chipped in some of the hard-standing areas. Fantastic walks with the dog into Clumber Park. Our only issue was with the large groups of cyclists who congregated on the site each evening to race around the pitches at speeds well in excess of 5mph. As ex-teachers we should have known better than to book during school holidays. We like children - it goes with the territory - but this did appear to be unchecked and one evening a youngster had a very close call with our A frame. Clumber Park itself has excellent, well marked cycle trails; perhaps recreational cycle racing could be prohibited on site to ensure safety and enjoyment for all.

Good to be back!

We must send our thanks to all the staff at Clumber Park. The first day back and 160 arrivals to manage! From a telephone call a few days before to plugging in the Ehu for us it was all very painless and very well managed. Wardens were still checking arrivals in with a smile at 6pm! We enjoyed the site mainly for cycling this time. A lovely ride through Clumber Park into Sherwood forest and on to the Major oak and the Robin Hood visitors centre. We are happy to use our own facilities so I am not aware of any social distancing issues. Let us hope we can catch up some of the breaks we have all missed since March. Enjoy your stay.

LOVELY STAY IN STRANGE TIMES

We stayed on Saturday 4th July, which was the opening day after the recent lockdown. The arrival procedures were well organised and efficient, although there needs to be more explained about the wrist band system for the toilet facilities on arrival. We were just told that these were "to monitor use of the toilet block". There was lots of information handed to us on arrival, and signs on the outside of the toilet blocks explaining what to do, but not everyone reads them! Our pitch had a view of the gents entrance to the block. At one point we counted that there were 7 men inside (maximum 3 allowed), but only 1 wrist band on the hook outside! Despite that it was lovely to stay here again, and it was really peaceful with the playground being closed :-) Under the circumstances the Wardens have done an excellent job. They were checking around the site very frequently, they were obviously under some pressure, but always had smiles on their faces. Well done!!!
