Reviewer: Northern Pirate 1 review from this member

This was our first time at the site and we were a little apprehensive as we had also decided to travel a little further for our 'weekend' break.

Firstly the facilities are pretty much what you would expect for a 21st century campsite. Clean showers and toilets, dishwashing facilities, plenty of water points etc.

For us the biggest thing was the layout. The site is immaculately maintained and very beautiful. Lots of trees and well kept pitches and with the River Maun serenely meandering through the site it is very picture postcard.

We have a 3 year old son and we were pitched on the Cedar area with other families with young kids. About 10m from our pitch was a play area for under 12s which my little un loved and spent most of his time there. It has been carefully thought out as there is also only one way in or out of the play area which basically meant we were never worried about him wandering off.

Our pitch was the only non-electric in the pitch area so we were right by the tap and toilets, but even though we were there during bank holiday at no time did our pitch become the M1 for those going for showers and washing up. The pitches are a good size about 10m x 8m and you are expected to get your tent and car on there.

Another good point is that on a weekend or a bank holiday you do not need to leave until 7pm which was like an extra day to us.

The site is well placed for all of the Midland's sights. Alton Towers and Drayton Manor are 50 minutes drive away plus there is a little steam railway about 10 minutes walk from the site. We took our son to Sundown Adventureland which is a theme park especially for u10s and he loved it.

Locally there is an Asda, Plenty of Takeaways and Mansfield only a short drive for a bigger selection.

The site has a very strict self-policing code we found that this was adhered to with very little noise after 1030. One thing I also noted was that we spent an evening out and did not return until 1130 but you were still able to get on to the site. Security is not an issue as you are about a mile from the main road with the site on its own private road.

All in all a wonderful, friendly, family oriented site and we have already booked up to go again. I would recommend this to anyone with a young family.

The drive up to the site was lovely, at reception we were met by very friendly people, checking in was a doddle.

We were shown to our pitch and was helped to site the caravan in place. The pitch was large and idyllic backing on to the river.

The site was beautifully clean and very well kept. The toilet and shower blocks (we did have a choice) were very clean and well appointed. The shop on site was well stocked, with both forgotten essentials and caravanning equipment.

The site is in a very good position for visiting Sherwood Forest, Culmber Park and many other attractions.

The only downfall is there was no mobile phone/internet connection or TV, even though the site does have a plug in TV connector next to the mains hookup point which is free of charge unless you don't have the cable to connect, but they do sell this cable in the shop at a very reasonable price.

Just come back from a weekend 2 night break at this great site. Only 30 minutes from home but could be a world away. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good shop for caravan essentials on site and reasonably priced too. Very clean and tidy site. Shower/toilet blocks in great condition and spotless. Pitches have plenty of room for caravan, car & awning. 2 playparks on site both had fencing around. Our little boy is only 4 but it was safe for him to be left within eyesight of the park while we sat and watched him play. Lovely river running through with some pitches that back straight on to it. Lots of ducks geese swans and peacocks too. Sherwood Forest Major Oak only a short drive away. Small kiddies fairground rides next to the carpark. Weekend deal is from 12 noon fri til 7pm Sunday which is great as you don't have to rush off your pitch early Sunday morning. Lots of seasonal tourers on this site but lovely friendly people. One couple even invited us in to look at their set up ! Nothing for us to moan about on this site apart from my husband says you have to lift your waste water up to empty it which can be a bit of a struggle.

We will certainly be returning again to this site.

Just spent 4 days at sherwood forest and what a fantastic place. We had hard standing right beside the river and it was lovely. Cant fault it at all. Showers heated and warm. Pitches large clean tidy and private. Loads of space for the kids. 2 nice parks, I think there's about 5 shower blocks around the site.

The site is set in beautiful forest and country side beside the river idel/maun. Not far from mansfield or southwell. Plenty of pubs around within reach. Good one at kings clipstone dog and duck 5 mins drive. Plenty of walks around the site in the trees and side of river. Great for dogs as well. Lovely place fantastic people. Will be back soon.

I love it here. Only about 20 minutes from home, but could be anywhere.

Extremely well kept site set over around 40 acres. The site accepts tents, Motorhomes and caravans and most of the pitches are level with EHU (although there is a grass non-electric camping field). Very generously sized pitches with laurel hedging separating each one, all roads are tarmac and well kept.

There are two playgrounds for the children (one either end of the site), a reasonably well stocked shop (no booze) and some lovely walks. The River Maun runs through the site but is generally fairly shallow. Several toilet/shower blocks throughout the site all of which are very clean - push button showers though

There are a lot of seasonal pitches here and the site is large, but personally think it is one of the best in the country. I have been many times and have never had a problem. It can get a bit noisy as it is a family site with lots of kids, but all calms down at a reasonable time and it becomes a haven.

Don't hesitate with this one, you won;t be disappointed!

What a lovely site.

We only live 30 mins away so thought we'd try it out for a weekend but will definitely go back again.

We had a lovely pitch at the side of the river opposite the playground. Great for the kids to play, feed the ducks etc. Not an ideal pitch if you don't have young kids as it can get a bit noisy. We didn't use the toilet block so cannot comment. Shop is well stocked and there was a mobile cafe on Sat night which sold takeaway food.

5 min drive to Sherwood Pines which is great for cycling. Also Sherwood Forest only 5 min drive away.

They also do a weekend deal which means you can arrive anytime after 12 on a Friday and leave any time Sunday.

Nice Nottinghamshire retreat.

Visited this lovely site last weekend. I cannot fault it. I had perfect weather, which always makes it better. The facilities are excellent. There are lots of wardens patrolling and always ready to offer assistance if required.

The toilet blocks are exceptionally clean and well maintained. Always plenty of hot water. I do not have children, but it was great to see them enjoying themselves on scooters and in the play area. Will definitely be returning.

This is our second visit within 6 weeks - this is a fantastic site - we have an 8 year old and from the minute we pulled onto site - she had made friends and was off, it is so safe for kids, everyone looks out for them. There are two playgrounds, and the kids love the swing over the stream.

The weather was fantastic, showers were spotless, wardens cannot do enough for you - we shall be visiting again.

Good dog walking facilities

Just returned from a 3 night break and and its a really nice site. This was our first camp at a 'proper' site - we've previously stayed at smaller farm type sites - and it was a positive experience. There is a farm next door and there is some traffic noise in the mornings from that and the fishermen turning up early to the fishing ponds.

We were on Oak, which we can recommend, especially if like us (Horizon 8 tent) you have a large tent - they have a 7m max but we phoned and they allowed us on and we weren't the only large tent there. The Oak field was also very quiet, with a maximum of 5 tenst on a field that can accommodate 12 large tents easily - all with EHU.

There are a range of tree named areas, some are larger and busier than others and some dedicated to seasonal caravanners - Cedar and Riverside being the busiest, but having the river close by on a hot is a bonus.

The reception was well organised and they had a print off of the booking and site plan etc ready and a warden was there to make sure we were in the right spot before we got out of the car.

The shop is also good, competitively priced for camping and caravanning equipment.

The facilities were good and there are plenty on site (5 across the site), with 2 showers per gents/ladies facilities and fully enclosed pot washing facilities on the whole. The showers were dirty at times, but this was due to individual users and not the site staff who were in there at 5.30am according to them. There is a mop and bucket in the facilities for campers to use if necessary.

Plenty to do in the area. Can recommend a visit to this site.

Had a great time at this site facilities were great and never any queueing despite the site being full. I did have to ask for a key for the disabled facilities, they were using the Radar system, and not being disabled just injured (have a brace on my leg) obviously I didn't have a Radar key but they did find me a key and I was able to use them.

The wardens were very friendly and sorted any trouble out very quickly. The pitches were of a generous size. The children loved the river and jumping in it! The little ones enjoyed feeding the ducks, the dog walk was good even without a dog.

Despite the site being busy and lots of children there (I had 5 with me) it was very very quiet and the rules about noise after 10. 30 were enforced.

The only one small down side to this site would be that to bike or walk anywhere off the site you have to go near a busy road with no path.

Will definitely be back. When the leg has mended!
