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.

Feel Sorry for Staff

Currently on this site and have witnessed the hard working staff keeping the site in super condition. Spotless facilities and clean tidy site as usual on Club sites. However the members are not making their lives easy. The worst problem is the speed of drivers including those towing is well in excess of 5mp, easily upwards to 30mph. This added to the many children enjoying the freedom of the outdoors, many on bikes, is an accident waiting to happen. Members it is not the job of staff to police the speed but us as members. Many groups of people having a lovely weekend away allow their children to entertain themselves out of sight, surely 10.00pm is a reasonable time to bring them back to their pitch, chasing in and out of shower blocks and cubicles is not acceptable at any time of day. The club sites are there for us all to enjoy 7 days a week. Surely it is not too much to ask that we respect everyone’s peace and quiet.

Mixed feelings

Mixed feels this time. The location is fabulous, easy access from A1 & M1, beautiful location in the heart of the Clumber Park woodland. Wonderful dog walking opportunities. We are regulars at Clumber Park, usually in the winter though. We found the new ‘summer’ wardens not to the same standard as the winter wardens. On arrival we went to check in and my bank card was declined. Tried it again and declined. Tried a couple of other cards, all declined. Tried my partners cards, all declined. Knowing there was large sums of money in all the accounts, we knew it wasnt our cards, however staff were adamant it wasnt their machine. We had just enough cash to pay so continued to our pitch. I immediately rang the bank and was informed that our cards were not blocked, and there was the funds available as expected. When telling reception which pitch we were on, i told the staff what the bank had said, purely incase anyone else had issues - but was completely dismissed by the older warden, it wasnt there machines, it was my cards, and if i didnt have enough money in the bank, it wasnt his problem. How rude! After setting up, we went into Worksop to withdraw some cash, and on returning to the site received a breaking news alert that visa were having technical issues and not processing payments Europe-wide. On passing recoeption i informed the staff of this, as this would obviously affect other people checking in. No thank you, no apology. Lots of bags of rubbish around the site at the bin areas, sat for a long time before been collected. We dont use the toilet blocks so cant comment. The WiFi was patchy on this visit, despite the upgrade. Previous visits since the upgrade have been ok. I’m not sure we will return until the winter to be honest.

Lack of consistency with food options and still poor internet

Clumber is one of those places you need to think well ahead in regards to food. We have been fortunate recently during two visits to a most excellent pizza van visiting both Wednesdays and Saturdays who do a mean Vegan Pizza. So - off we trotted for a quick night away only to find said van not going that evening. We waited outside reception wondering what to do as this was our only plan and said - let's look at the internet.... and, despite the Club mag saying internet had vastly been improved on the site - there was none to be had and thus, we had to take an hour and a half trip to Sainsbury's in Worksop to get some provisions. The Club should make it clear on the site info when booking a site where food vans are invited in, and therefore one becomes accustomed to this fact, that there would not be one on specific days.

Mixed feelings

When we first arrived at this site we loved the location of where it was for going off walking or cycling but that is the only thing that we enjoyed. The first day on a very hot day they had water issues and nobody could fill up or use the toilet blocks and talking of toilet blocks they could do with a really good clean and a little TLC is needed in them. Yes the wardens do tell you to lock up your bikes on a night time as thieves operate in this area as we found out on our second night and somebody stole a child's bike out of the awning of a caravan a few pitches away from us!! To top it all off our last night 3 new arrivals that had arrived that day ended up having a full on fight in front of the children's play park which is totally disgusting. The wardens dealt with the situation well by getting the police involved but it is not what i want my children to be seeing when away on our caravan holiday. Such a shame as its not cheap to stay here either.

First visit - won't be the last!

We have just returned from a five night stay at Clumber Park - and an eventful one it was! Firstly a huge thank you to the warden who came to find us after a phone call from the vet in Worksop after taking our retriever there on our first night! Its worth bearing in mind those 'useful numbers' that you are given when checking in - they really are! Also worth bearing in mind that there is no mobile phone signal here - that's regardless of your network - and it goes for most of the National Trust area - so re educated myself with the payphone on site. My network allows wifi calls but it is also very poor on site as there is an issue with it (?) Anyway the site is in a brilliant location for exploring Clumber (or visiting the vet in Worksop!) - facilities as per the usual very high CAMC standards and even though it was the school holidays no queues in the two toilet blocks on site both of which are kept very clean. Site is a credit to the teams of wardens who keep it tidy - its also worth bearing in mind they have a free cycle lock up - you are advised to use it if you have cycles with you. Till the next time when we hope we will be able to explore more with a dog that's recovered!
