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.

Our local site

Stoped at Clumber for 3 nights end of the first week in March to try out the Motorhome we had just picked up. We have stayed here a lot with our caravan over the years, as it was nice and local for setting up the van (kept in storage) before a tour. Clumber is a very pleasant site set towards the northern edge of the park. It is generally fairly quiet during the week, except at holiday times, but fills up to capacity at weekends. Great for walking or cycling in the park. The visitor facilities are set part way down the large lake, a circular walk around which is between 5 and 6 miles from the site, depending on the exact route. Sherwood Forest Visitors Centre, now in the newly constructed building run by the RSPB, is about a 6 mile drive. There is no mobile coverage on the site and indeed over much of the park. However, a 200m walk up Limetree Avenue, towards the 614 will get you a 3 / 4G signal on O2. The site Broadband is much improved. Although it will undoubtedly struggle on summer weekends, at full winter capacity I was still getting 6 / 8MB most of the time. The facilities are kept to the normal high standards, although the showers are not the most user friendly, having only a narrow perch to sit on. The MH service point was the old style, although the manhole covers were fairly easy to extract, even for my back. However, apparently they are putting in the drive over ones this week.

Great stay spoilt by generator

Love this site but spoilt by someone turning up with a generator on our last night. Is that even allowed? Where are the wardens? Now 9pm and still going strong!

Good Location with walks from the site

Welcoming & friendly staff. Great location with walks into Clumber Park. The shower block is a little dated but very clean. Disappointed how weekend bookings block other stays but that is a problem with many popular sites. We took part in our first NT 10K run and will be returning.

Excellent site with very friendly and welcoming wardens ...

Stayed at this site on many occasions and as usual on this stay the wardens were very welcoming on arrival.....site is always very clean and tidy..it’s a shame that some caravaners don’t leave the shower facilities in the same state that they found them in!!!...for this I feel sorry for the wardens who are left to clean up the mess !!!!!

Great site to visit with dogs

Great site to visit with dogs, with direct access from the site to Clumber Park for woodland walks. Lovely walk through the park to the NT lakeside and chapel with “Central Bark” dog friendly cafe.
