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.

Weekend Break

After coming here for many years I would like to add a couple of points that we noticed on our short weekend break. This was the first site that we came to when we got our first caravan, and now 12 years later it appears that the toilet block has been not renovated during this time, it is now looking tired and needs modernising. Other sites (Caravan Club and None CC sites have much nicer toilet blocks), and given that this site is quite higher priced, you don't feel like you are receiving value for your money. The other thing we noticed is what appeared to be a few families of travelers on the site, with very untidy pitch areas, large families, loud music played late into the night, and kids on bikes everywhere, this was quite worrying at times. I do enjoy the area and great walking to the Clumber Park visitor centre. Hopefully the Caravan Club have this site on the horizon for further improvements in 2020.

Great site

This is a great site if you like walking. Wardens keep this site really clean and tidy. I can't think of anything that needs to be improved on. The only problem is not having a mobile phone signal. Not a bad thing though.

Excellent location but toilet block needs some updating

We have been regular visitors here for several years and enjoy the location and the access to the forest and Clumber Park. We have however noticed that the toilet block / shower facilities are showing considerable signs of wear and require refurbishment. The block does not compare well to other club sites such as Harrogate where we also recently stayed. In addition some areas of the forest around the site are being ruined by tipping of site waste (leaves and hard standing material removed in refurbishment of some pitches). There are several areas around the site where this is getting out of hand and will severely damage the trees and wildlife of this woodland site. I hope that something can be done urgently about this, for example remove off site the spoil and compost the leaves instead of dumping them under the trees around the site. As a working biologist I am happy to offer my help and advice if required. Best wishes, Richard Davies BSc

Wonderful New Year Stop

A fabulous stop for New Year’s Eve. With 2 small children & a dog we wanted a site that was quiet and close to good areas for walking and cycling. Clumber fitted the bill. Extremely peaceful despite being fully booked! The wardens were extremely welcoming friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean & well maintained. Fantastic location for access to NT Clumber Park site with all its trails & great cafe.

Welcome Christmas Stay

The staff could not have been more helpful - arrived Xmas Eve for a 3 night stay and we were offered wine, chocolates and mince pies - thank you! One toilet block temporarily closed but the main block is more than adequate, clean and secure. We love the fact that trees surround the site and are also grouped within it. WC lockdown for cleaning was between 10-11.30am. Do go for walks if you can - the main Clumber VC about 35 minutes or more if you go down the Lime Tree Avenue - no entry charge if walking or cycling - great cafes, two of which on site are dog friendly and great walk around the lake. The walled garden is amazing, free to enter and well worth visiting. Fantastic setting and not far off the A1, though far enough that you would never know on site. Quieter times to visit the site in spring-autumn are Sunday to Thursday as we understand it. Will return - some previous criticisms of the WCs by others - but we have no problem with them whatsoever. Thank you
