The Club welcomes the National Trust to Clumber Park
The Caravan and Motorhome Club were delighted to welcome Louise Ransberry, Assistant Director and Nick Brown, Estate Manager, from the National Trust to our beautiful Clumber Park Club Campsite in Nottinghamshire this week, following our completion of our extensive redevelopment work.
The National Trust team met with the Club’s Director General, Nick Lomas along with Emma McQuillan, Head Governance, Ian Spendlove, Regional Manager, Joe Sollner, Development Manager and Emma Cox, Head of Site Operations. The Site Managers and Assistant Site Managers were also on hand to reveal some of the new attractions for Clumber Park.

These included a new facilities block that feature dishwashing and laundry facilities, as well as an accessibility inclusive bathroom. We have converted a number of grass pitches to hardstanding and have also added more premium pitches which are larger than standard and feature an all-weather surface. There is now a brand new play area for children to enjoy. We have added brand new extra-secure bike storage, a bike maintenance station as well as a bike washing station. There is also new dedicated payable electric vehicle (EV) charging station in the car park.

Following feedback from our members, we are also trialling a number of other assets within Clumber Park Club campsite as well. These include improving services for our members with accessibility needs by adding an accessible toilet. Updating the ‘look and feel’ of our interior designs with some beautiful member photography. Trialling the dual access to the new toilet block to ensure they remain open even during the cleaning schedule. We are also looking at new signage within our facility block to make it clearer for our guests.
Having joined our network in 1981, Clumber Park Club campsite is one of our most popular, especially with families, and with the attractive backdrop that was once Sherwood Forest and the reminders of Nottingham’s most famous resident, Robin Hood, it is easy to see why. Set on 20 acres within a generous 4,000 acres of luscious green parkland, Clumber Park was once the estate of the Dukes of Newcastle and is now owned by the National Trust.
