Gunthorpe Camping: Public footpath or cycle route along the river going under the bridge

General

  • Spacious and grassy site on the banks of the River Trent
  • Watersports centre and several theme parks a short drive away
  • Riverside walks and bike rides, boat trips and restaurants nearby

Shoot along for a stay here… you'll have enough to do in scenic surrounds to keep you occupied for aeons.

Gunthorpe Camping is a small family-friendly site set on a level grassy paddock next to the River Trent, making it most handy for riverside walks and bike rides direct from the grounds, and canoeing, kayaking, fishing and boat trips all nearby. There's also the National Watersports Centre and Sundown Adventureland within 40 minutes' drive… and when you're tuckered out and back at base, several good bars and restaurants are within a short stroll.

The grassy paddock is open and surrounded by hedges and mature trees, so you'll have plenty of space to spread out as well as hunker down when the mood takes you. You should have a peaceful and comfy stay here too: the grounds are well-maintained and the showers in the bright clean washrooms have plenty of hot water.

Barbecues are allowed, so it's all systems go if you want to grill up an alfresco feast by the riverbank.

    Relaxed environment, level ground, well maintained site including toilet/shower block and outdoor dish washing area.
    Great to be able to access the site at a late arrival time with automatic check-in process. Choose your own pitch.
    Lovely views of the River Trent and waking up to the cows in the field next to us was delightful.

    Only thing I struggled with was the spiders in the loos and shower. I know it’s spider season which is why I still gave a 5* but would have been great if they could have been cleared daily.

    Excellent location with walks along the Trent just across the road. There is a hotel nearby where they do food and obviously drinks. Set inside the gated field you have the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere with very peaceful scenes into the distance.

    Disliked: 

    Although it wasn’t a problem for us, as it was not busy, it could maybe do with an extra toilet or two.

Local attractions

Despite the industrial past and present, Nottinghamshire has many fab natural landscapes: the wetlands at Skylarks Nature Reserve, a 20-minute drive from the site are as rich with feathered life as any you'll see on TV nature channels.

For more adventurous hours, there's go-karting 15 minutes' drive away in Netherfield, and a massive array of high octane stuff (not all of it watery) at the National Watersports Centre (20 minutes' drive) including Segway rides, high ropes, wakeboarding and rafting.

Then there's Sherwood Forest and Sherwood Forest Pines Park 40 minutes away… a leafy combination of legend, history, nature reserve, country park and adventure centre, with hiking and biking trails through 450 acres of ancient oaks and wildlife. Adventureseekers can see it from the treetops on ropes and wires at Go Ape, and the kids can clamber about at the award-winning natural play area Robin Hood’s Hideout.

For family antics out of the forest, Sundown Adventureland (40 minutes) has rides and themed playgrounds for the under-10s; Twinlakes Park offers birds of prey shows and creepy critters along with its waterpark and rollercoaster rides, and for the real big-ride fanatics, it's an hour and a half to Alton Towers.

It's half an hour to Nottingham for tours of the castle and the caves, stopping for snifters in Ye Trip To Jerusalem and ice skating at Motorpoint Arena. You could also hire bikes for a trip through Colwick Country Park (20 minutes' drive), a pleasant combo of woodlands, lakes, meadows and playgrounds where you can swim, fish, walk, sail and spot wildlife.
