After reading some reviews regarding thefts of bicycles / from awnings etc. We almost didn't go.

But I'm glad we did. All we had to do was ensure we took our bikes to the secure lockup as they tell you to do. And we put our BBQ away after use.

It was in no reflection a problem to do this. They are better to inform you than for you to find out the hard way!

A lovely family friendly site, we had a lovely time

There's one huge problem with this site that no-one else here is mentioning.

Well, as just about everyone else says, the site is brilliant and the staff are friendly and there's a kids' playground and it's quiet and in the middle of the forest with cycling opportunities all around. And all this is just wonderful so I won't repeat it.

But there's a huge problem. Every evening at dusk, the wardens come around and tell anyone who has a bike that they must lock it in the secure shed provided. Otherwise it will be stolen overnight. The wardens tell you that padlocking the bike won't make any difference because the thieves will use bolt cutters.

You can even padlock it to your motorhome bike rack, and they'll still use the bolt cutters, on your vehicle, while you're sleeping in it. This is a pretty scary picture the wardens are painting.

Maybe you hope that the wardens are exaggerating? Not at all. A neighbour pointed out that she had had exactly that experience on her previous visit. (And she came back?!)

There are also signs on the site warning caravanners to leave nothing in their awnings. Because, yes you guessed correctly, it will be stolen.

Spent a couple of nights here during Feb half-term.

The site is in a beautiful location within Clumber Park NT; it is very close to the junction of the A57 and A1 - definitely the best way in.

On arrival the wardens are very courteous and friendly. However, we didn't like the fact that the first thing we were told was about bike thefts and that we had to store bikes in a secure shed overnight. It seemed to be the primary focus of the wardens which was rather alarming, particularly as each pitch seemed to have a bike rack that you could lock a bike to. I am not sure why we weren't really even given the option of locking the bikes to these.

The pitch itself was a good size and all the pitches seemed to be very sheltered; particularly useful in February!

Facilities were adequate if not sensational. Again a key was required which made us worried about security.

We did spend time cycling around Clumber Park though and, whilst cold, we were lucky insofar as it was both dry and clear. The cycle routes are excellent and there is plenty of opportunity for all levels of cyclist - we simply potter around but some appeared to be going of in full mountain bike mode!

We are debating about returning; it is extremely convenient, close to family etc. But the 'security' issues put us off a bit.

This site is located 5 minutes off the A1 (This is definitely the easiest way in) set in the grounds of Clumber Park, it is all trees around the site and it makes for an excellent place for walking and cycling as it is very flat. As you approach the site from there is a gateway entrance into the park which newbies might see it as a tight squeeze but take it steady and it’s not a problem. As you get close to the site it is very clearly signed and what to do and where to go when you pull into the entrance. We were warmly welcomed by the wardens who were very professional and friendly advising us where to go, find our own pitch (Hard standing only as they close the grass pitches to rest them in the wet wintery months).

When you select a pitch you need to bear in mind that the power and TV posts are located in the middle of 4 adjacent pitches so you may need power and aerial cable extensions. Don’t even both trying to tune your TV up using a van aerial as the signal is awful (As is the mobile signal, completely non existent), use the aerial on the site post it supplies maximum strength on all Freeview channels. The water, grey water, glass recycling and general waste bins are located together in several locations around the site so you won’t be far away from one where ever you pitch up. All the hard standings are pretty level and seem well drained with room for van, car and full awning.

The 2 toilet blocks are located in the middle of each side of the kidney shaped site so just a short walk from even the furthest pitch you are given a key for them, we didn’t ask why a key was required, but guess it’s to stop general public using them as Clumber Park didn’t seem to have many facilities. The toilets were always clean and well stocked, their seems to be plenty of toilets and showers for the number of pitches. The toilet block is very ‘Practical’ but not really a ‘Pretty’ area, it’s hard to put a finger on it is. The showers are again very practical but not pretty, No pressing a button to keep the water running and you can set your own temperature, little things that are nice. The cubicles are also on two levels with a shower curtain between so your clothes stay dry, the only negative is that the showers are not thermostatically balanced so you can get Hot and Cold spots as other showers and taps are turned on/off.

Places to go – We went to Retford on the Saturday and it has a nice little market and is quite a nice town centre to wander around, then headed over to Gainsborough and went round Marshalls Yard Retail Park which isn’t bad for a wander around.

You can walk for miles around the site however the Clumber Park Visitor Centre is a fair walk to get to

In summary it’s a nice site that we would use again, price’s not good during School holiday times so we would return during school time as it looks like this site gets really busy during the school and summer holidays.

We spent a lovely few days here. Gorgeous location, lots of great walks, plenty of wildlife to see. Toilet block and showers were really clean and good facilities. The warden who booked us in on arrival was very friendly and helpful.

As well as spending time in and around Clumber Park we went to Rufford Park which is really nice. Because we went out of season the parking at Rufford Park was free, which is always a bonus! We also liked the fact that the pitch fee at the caravan site included the cost of car parking in Clumber Park which saves £6. 80 per day.

There was no wi-fi which we didn't mind at all, nice to get away from all that for a few days to be honest.

We will definitely return :-)

Fabulous site.

Wonderful approach to the site. Easy to find. As usual with CC we were able to chose our pitch. Fabulous feeling of space within the site. Pitches good distances apart and also lots of grass pitches to choose from although these were not available due to the time of year.

Wardens very helpful, especially when we had a problem with our gas cooker.

The area has so much to do with regard to walks and cycle rides.

The facilities are the usual high CC standard.

Would definitely go back here and would thouroughly recommend.
