There's lots to like about Longholme Farm five minutes from the Nottinghamshire market town of Retford: its welcome is warm, its camping area spacious and its location smashing, 20 minutes from the Robin Hood-based shenanigans of Sherwood Forest and close to both Sundown Adventureland and the outdoor water splash area of King's Park.
Longholme is a smallholding in the Nottinghamshire countryside welcoming all types of guests as well as well-behaved pets. It's run by very friendly and helpful Gail and Steve, who are always on hand with tips and info about the local area, including eateries nearby for all tastes and budgets, the good local transport links and the many outdoor activities in the area.
Only a small number of pitches are allowed on Longholme's four-acre field, so you'll have plenty of space and can pitch wherever you like. Toilets and showers are available for guests.
Retford five minutes away has a weekly market, a Thursday and Saturday general market, a Friday antiques and collectibles market, and a farmers' market once a month. Three large supermarkets are within easy reach of the farm.
Open from 31/01/2018 to 01/11/2018
