We spent three nights here this week. Check-in took a while. We arrived on Monday about 2ish, nothing to do with Covid, just a lot of vans, and some people seeming to need masses of info on arrival. There didnt seem to be quite as many arrivals on other days, but I guess Friday would be busy. System was efficient, and staff pleasant.
Facilities we used were clean, although sanitiser sometimes empty; we didnt use toilet blocks at all.
There is a lot to do in the area, both from the site (walks into the woods/Clumber park) and nearby with Sherwood Forest visitor centre etc.
We didnt find it particularly peaceful. The weather didnt encourage much sitting out, but to be honest, between the mowing (which is transitory and low level noise) and the dogs yapping and barking at anybody who went past we wouldnt want to. I would imagine at weekends and school holidays it would be really noisy. We did realise that the last time we went to a Club site was Thetford Forest (no toilet blocks, smaller site) about a year ago. We will certainly stay clear in future.
I was also irritated that in No Mow May the grass was still being mown to within an inch of its life. I get that grass pitches need mowing, and possibly the strips in between the hardstandings, but there is plenty of other grass at this site, with daisies and dandelions flowering, that were cut off during our stay. It seemed no areas were left to grow long. Disappointing.
