Kelham Hall and Country Park: Event field

General

  • Woodland wildlife haven with nature trails and woodland walks
  • Directly opposite a stately home, four miles from Newark
  • 44 acres of landscaped grounds with playground and fishing

Now this is scenic camping… Kelham Hall and Country Park near Newark in Nottinghamshire is within the country park of the former Victorian mansion of Kelham Hall: pile the family to this country estate for a look at how the other half lived.

Meals are available at the Fox Inn, directly opposite the hall, throughout the day from 8am onwards (it's also got a good-sized beer garden if you simply require a cool drink).

But you might spend most of your time at Kelham roaming around the acres of landscaped grounds, woodland walks and pretty paths along the River Trent… There are nature trails for children, a playground, a riverside meadow to wander in, loads of space for ball games, and yet more places for private picnics or sitting and watching the wildlife.

Fishing and tennis are both available on site for an extra charge, as is a trailer tour (also fab) around the 44-acre estate's woodland, riverside meadow, sculpted gardens and secret monks' graveyard.

Kelham Hall and Country Park takes tents, tourers and motorhomes on its good-sized pitches, and has a shower and toilet block with refurbished shower cubicles.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

The café is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

A cable measuring at least 10 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

The shower facilities are closed until Monday 17 May 2021. Guests will need to use their own facilities.

Reception is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Coronavirus update: please note that the hall and tea rooms will remain closed until further notice.

Access to Kelham Hall and its state rooms, restaurant and bar, is usually free. During special events and private functions, however, the site is unable to guarantee access, or an entry fee may be applicable.

On busy periods such as bank holidays, you may be sited in the events field. This will be in a rally format.

We loved it!!!04/05/2021

    Everything... We are a family of two children (9 & 10) a toddler (1) and a dog! So as a whole family we can be very hard to please, as usually someone isn't happy with something, but not this time... This place had everything for everyone! My two older children loved the big open space, the woods and surroundings they had to play in, my toddler loved the little play area that was available, especially the little slide. Our dog enjoyed his walks around the Trent and the space there to have a good run around off his lead. Me and my partner loved the peacefulness and the picturesque scenery of the site. We were met on arrival by the site manager, who kindly gave us a very informative introduction of the place and its surroundings which was super helpful, and most importantly pointed us in the direction of the pub (that did wonderful pizzas). We did pay the extra supplement for coming over a bank holiday, but you really do get what you pay for and the price was well and truly worth it. We had a wonderful stay and are already planning on coming again.

    Great little site, level pitches in the grounds of a stately home with gardens, woodland and a chapel by the River Trent. 2 play parks to occupy the little one and tennis courts. Newark is walkable but there's also a bus. The pub is 250m away and was open for outdoor drinks with table service, and has an extensive food menu when fully open.

    Disliked: 

    The washing up facilities were rather 'rustic'
