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 from 8am daily.

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. The site office sells drinks, ice cream and vending machine snacks; if you're not eating at the hall, a pub serving food is just outside the gates.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

The bar and/or restaurant is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

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.

From the manager...

Hi John M

Thank you for the many positive comments about the site , however it is worth pointing out that during the early months of the year some of our facilities are shut down. Obviously we have water and disposal facilities available throughout the year adjacent to the main Hall but on this occasion these were obviously not pointed out to you. I see that you would recommend and re-visit the site and we do hope to be able to welcome you back in the not too distant future.

    Beautiful location in grounds of Kelham Hall, and close to river Trent.
    Good location for tent - quiet, level pitch amongst trees.
    Good shower and toilet facilities in the main hall - very clean.
    Helpful staff.

    Disliked: 

    There is a possible lack of security as the site is open to public at all times, although as the site is shared with Kelham Hall conference centre, tennis courts, fishing and other facilities there is probably nothing that can be done about this.
