Well-maintained pitches

General

  • Peaceful adults-only site 10 minutes' drive from Retford
  • Sherwood Forest and Yorkshire Wildlife Park within a half-hour drive
  • A 10-minute walk from a country pub with meals and real ale

With an olive branch being a sign of peace, it’s rather fitting that Olive Tree Caravan and Camping Park is a mighty peaceful place for a quiet country break...

There'll be no noisy nippers at this adults-only Nottinghamshire site, so the grownups have the run of the place (although canine pals are welcome to join as long as they promise to behave themselves). Once settled into your spacious pitch, feel free to plan activities that small sorts might turn their noses up at: fishing, historic building visits, spa days and miles and miles of fab walks (along the Chesterfield Canal, around Clumber Park or through famed Sherwood Forest – whatever takes your fancy).

However you opt to fill your days, it’s surely always a welcome sight to see a country pub awaiting at the end of it: that role is played here by your temporary local, serving up meals and real ale by the canal 10 minutes’ walk away in the village of Clarborough. Should the weather decree it possible, you’re welcome to fire up a barbecue on site instead; for supplies, browse the selection of essentials at the site shop or take the 10-minute drive to the supermarkets in Retford.

A slew of security measures around the site means that guests can sleep easy, and all are assured of a nice toasty shower here too, as the smart modern bathroom block has heating and accessible facilities.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and good pitches17/09/2019

  • Liked: 

    Lovely peaceful site, thanks to being adult only, and with very pleasant surroundings. We parked close to the facilities, which were clean and pleasant, and mine host was charming and amusing, very relaxed and made us feel welcome.
    We had our dogs with us, who were also made welcome, and there are just loads of good dog walks around the area, as well as a field at the end of the site. The site is close to the very scenic Chesterfield Canal, and the hills the other side of the church were a nice and unexpected feature.
    Security was good, with an electric barrier for which he issued cards.
    The site was neatly maintained, grass cut, roadways nice and wide so my dodgy parking wasn't an issue for others.
    All in all a good site and we enjoyed our stay

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike. Wifi would be nice, but not essential, and we read somewhere that the proprietor is working on it.

    Second visit to this lovely adult only park, stayed on pitch 26 Nestled between lovely apple trees for 8 days. Very friendly warden Lee keeps the park and toilet/shower block immaculately clean.. We will definitely be returning again soon.

    The only negative would be that there is a caravan/motor home storage at the bottom of the park that blocks the lovely views of the countryside

Local attractions

Got your fishing kit stashed in your rolling home? Have a chat with the folk on site for details of choice spots along the Chesterfield Canal, or head to Hayton Lakes (less than five minutes’ drive) to try your luck with the carp, barbel and bream in its seven lakes. More interested in getting into the water? Sort yourself with a spa day at Ye Olde Bell 10 minutes’ drive away for thermal baths and treatments.

Walkers have a wide choice of places to go for a ramble in this region – as well as waterside wanders by the Chesterfield Canal (a 10-minute walk away), you might like the trails of Clumber Park National Trust estate (20 minutes’ drive) or to view the remains of the 12th-century abbey in Rufford Park (half an hour). Sherwood Forest, once Robin Hood’s 450-acre stomping ground, is half an hour away.

Seeking something to stir up a bit more adrenaline? Take to the treetops for a high ropes course and zipline at Go Ape adventure park, or walk among the lions at Yorkshire Wildlife Park; both are around a half-hour drive away.

Must see

  • Sherwood Forest Country Park (12.1 miles)
  • Lincoln Castle (17.1 miles)
  • Lincoln Cathedral (17.2 miles)
