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.

    shower block absolutely spotless
    wardens very helpful & friendly
    nice walk along the canal, a pub a mile away whichever way you go
    good field for dog walking
    nice quiet site

    Disliked: 

    pitches were a bit close to each other
    a little annoyed that people didn't take notice of the sign asking for dogs to be kept on a lead in the field as our dog is a little timid and a man had his two dogs off their leads so I ended up taking mine for a walk elsewhere as ours was too worried where his dogs were

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.
