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.

A good location for a relaxing weekend.

We enjoyed our second stay at Clumber Park. It is a great place to relax. The National Trust Park is perfect for a steady pedal on the bikes. Quiet roads or bridleways let you explore the area. Everywhere is also walkable. The National Trust staff at the visitor centre were especially welcoming. Have a look at the huge greenhouse, it's a quarter of a mile long! We also cycled to the Sherwood forest visitors Centre. Easily accessible and well worth it. Clumber Park site is a good location for a relaxing weekend.

Clumber Park for all seasons

Last week saw our second trip this year to Clumber Park site, having previously visited in the summer. These are our observations. 1. Despite being a large site, Clumber Park offers a sense of relaxed space, especially out of season when only hard pitches are in use. Most pitches back onto forest, offering a variety of outlook, wildlife and shade. 2. We were present for a warden hand-over last week and both sets of wardens were friendly, helpful and efficient giving the site a cared-for feeling. 3. Only the main block of facilities was open for winter touring, but this was never an issue. Whilst not ‘brand new’, the facilities are more than adequate and kept beautifully clean. 4. The location is stunning - we caught the autumn colours of the forest walks and enjoyed the 20 minute walk to the National Trust centre for tea in the walled garden. Incidentally, entry is free for walkers and cyclists. There is a wide variety of walks and we recommend that you source a copy of the NT walking guide which is available from the entry kiosks. 5. Do bear in mind that there is no mobile phone signal, and that wifi is limited. For those wanting to check emails and social media, wifi is adequate.

Old and Tired

We stay at Clumber Park often as it is a good stopover off the A1. Great for walking and dogs. Nice staff and grounds well kept. On our last visit we were concered that the wash blocks were so tired. Taps not working or tops of taps missing,, Plumber called 2 weeks ago but had still not fixed a problem. Chipped paint in the disabled stalls and elsewhere. Bins overflowing at 2pm. But it was half term. Members should be informed up front that there is no mobile and no wifi connection. Also there is no bus and you are relatively isolated. The Club should spend some of its £120m turnover on sorting this site out and bringing it up to a good standard. Regards Richard Baker

HALLOWEEN WEEKEND BREAK

Have visited this site many times and always popular with families. Very busy during our visit the only downside was the number of children using the toilets and laundry room as a play area. Felt sorry for the wardens were left to clear the mess up. but we will be happy to visit again.
