Gunthorpe Camping: Public footpath or cycle route along the river going under the bridge

General

  • Spacious and grassy site on the banks of the River Trent
  • Watersports centre and several theme parks a short drive away
  • Riverside walks and bike rides, boat trips and restaurants nearby

Shoot along for a stay here… you'll have enough to do in scenic surrounds to keep you occupied for aeons.

Gunthorpe Camping is a small family-friendly site set on a level grassy paddock next to the River Trent, making it most handy for riverside walks and bike rides direct from the grounds, and canoeing, kayaking, fishing and boat trips all nearby. There's also the National Watersports Centre and Sundown Adventureland within 40 minutes' drive… and when you're tuckered out and back at base, several good bars and restaurants are within a short stroll.

The grassy paddock is open and surrounded by hedges and mature trees, so you'll have plenty of space to spread out as well as hunker down when the mood takes you. You should have a peaceful and comfy stay here too: the grounds are well-maintained and the showers in the bright clean washrooms have plenty of hot water.

Barbecues are allowed, so it's all systems go if you want to grill up an alfresco feast by the riverbank.

    Clean showers and toilet blocks. Friendly staff. Excellent location. Hosts message you on the arrival date telling you your pitch and where to drive to. Loved our stay. Shame there is no WiFi but we used our own phones as hot spots. Lovely relaxed feel on site. The owners messaged me on which eateries were best value for money too.

    Disliked: 

    Being really picky here as there is nothing to complain about. There was a stag weekend happening in the garden next door that went into the early hours of saturday. They had fun, there was no swearing etc, reminded me of what it was like to be younger... I wish the couple a long and happy marriage.as you see, Nothing to complain about at all.

    The shower could have done with a seat/ bench area to get dressed after. Unfortunately, space tiny, and clothes were trailing on the wet shower floor.

    The 1st field. The trees in front of ours and our friends caravan made our little area private and was pleasant to look at.

    Disliked: 

    The site has 6 amp max supply. This wasn’t advertised as far as I remember and did give some issues when using higher powered appliances.

    One of the best sites we've stayed on. Only five serviced pitches on the back field and the pitches huge so not on top of other campers. Nice, quiet and great views. River Trent opposite the site with great walking and cycle trails and a handy pub just next door and takeaway/restaurant five minutes walk. Will definitely be revisiting.

Local attractions

Despite the industrial past and present, Nottinghamshire has many fab natural landscapes: the wetlands at Skylarks Nature Reserve, a 20-minute drive from the site are as rich with feathered life as any you'll see on TV nature channels.

For more adventurous hours, there's go-karting 15 minutes' drive away in Netherfield, and a massive array of high octane stuff (not all of it watery) at the National Watersports Centre (20 minutes' drive) including Segway rides, high ropes, wakeboarding and rafting.

Then there's Sherwood Forest and Sherwood Forest Pines Park 40 minutes away… a leafy combination of legend, history, nature reserve, country park and adventure centre, with hiking and biking trails through 450 acres of ancient oaks and wildlife. Adventureseekers can see it from the treetops on ropes and wires at Go Ape, and the kids can clamber about at the award-winning natural play area Robin Hood’s Hideout.

For family antics out of the forest, Sundown Adventureland (40 minutes) has rides and themed playgrounds for the under-10s; Twinlakes Park offers birds of prey shows and creepy critters along with its waterpark and rollercoaster rides, and for the real big-ride fanatics, it's an hour and a half to Alton Towers.

It's half an hour to Nottingham for tours of the castle and the caves, stopping for snifters in Ye Trip To Jerusalem and ice skating at Motorpoint Arena. You could also hire bikes for a trip through Colwick Country Park (20 minutes' drive), a pleasant combo of woodlands, lakes, meadows and playgrounds where you can swim, fish, walk, sail and spot wildlife.
