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

Warm welcome over Christmas

We were afforded a very warm welcome at Clumber over the Christmas period. The site was up to the usual standard and provided a wonderful venue for our family a Christmas.

Lovely and peaceful - would definitely recommend

Stayed here for just one night on 16th November 2019 simply to try out our new touring caravan and we loved it. Good facilities, good sized pitches, easy to get to and well-kept overall - we had no complaints whatsoever. Surrounded by woodland and lovely walks, even the persistent rain over the weekend didn't bother us - we will definitely go back in Spring 2020. There is definitely no mobile phone signal so please be aware of this if you want to stay in touch with anyone!

A bit of a contrast

Stayed here for a couple of nights immediately after a period of heavy rain, with attendant localised flooding. We’ve stayed here a few times, some years back, so knew what there was to see and do. There were only hardstandings on offer in view of the weather, but even so we had difficulty finding a pitch that hadn’t got some degree of standing water. The one toilet block in use was showing it’s age. Some heavy refurb is overdue here, presumably the other one is the same? To be honest, it was all a bit of a contrast with the previous site we’d stayed at on the same trip, no names, but it’s not very far away from here…. Having said that, the wardens do a great job, they can’t help with the weather.

Bit disappointing to be honest

Depends what you want we guess but...…. It's great for peace and quiet but certainly wouldn't want to be there when it's busy. Could only give 1 * for family friendliness as not applicable for us. As you are close to a busyish B class road there will no doubt be a lot of bike activity on site. The location is nice but it is a REALLY good walk down to Clumber Park Visitor attractions.....we walked very fast so it must have been well over 2 miles each way. However the whole place is very worthwhile , just depends on what your expectations are. Maybe CAMC should put an indicator of distance in their description? Unfortunately the weather was not good during our stay but staff tried their best to manage torrential rain.....giving us an offer to move pitch when we became marooned!! We were on the point of leaving anyway but that was departure day and no other reason. The facilities are adequate and that is all that can be said. They are kept clean but really the whole block ( only 1 open as winter timetable ) needs massive refurbishment. However despite the weather we enjoyed our 3 night break ( good value for money midweek ) and it was convenient for home.

Very nice site

We recently spent 3 Very enjoyable nights at the Clumber Park Site which we enjoyed. However, the facilities were disappointing , the gents toilets, showers, etc. Though adequate are in need of updating. Of greater concern was the lack of any heating in the disabled facilities which made life uncomfortable for my wife who is suffering with terminal cancer. We do hope that this is resolved as a matter of urgency.
