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 tearooms, 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.

Entrance is free to the hall itself and there are tearooms serving snacks, cakes, ice creams and drinks. 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.

    What a great stay! Arrived to a level pitch (#1) close to the tap and EHU. We arrived on a Friday night and left on the Sunday. We planned to go into Newark on the Saturday but actually had a great day around the grounds of Kelham Hall - the kids play parks, the river, grass maze and woodland kept my kids entertained all day. We then popped over the road to a fab pub (The Fox Inn) for tea - all in walking distance.

    Thank you!

    Disliked: 

    The under 5's park needs a little TLC, but still fine for my kids to play on and they enjoyed the over 5 play park too.

    Friendly informal site. Children and dog friendly. Plenty of space and flat ground. Good for children to ride around on their bikes. Nearby pub, river for fishing and a small woodland walk. There is a good ice cream parlour nearby too. Newark is also a lovely town and well worth a visit.
