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.

    The tent was so cute and the welcome touches were amazing too! The pitches aren’t too close together so you feel you can still do as you wish outside you tent like have a fire, eat meals, play with your children. The views from the paddock are great and amazing to watch the moon at night. Close to the river Trent for nice walks and good pubs/cafes near by. Great little stay for couples or couples with young children. Our 1 y/o loved it! Loved being outside and running around and seeing the cows and ducks near by.

  • Liked: 

    In a peaceful, countryside setting, the bell tent was ideal. A double bed, two sofa beds, a welcome box which included kettle, lantern, marshmallows and bbq skewers to use on our fire pit we had ordered. It was lovely sitting in front of this watching the sun go down.
    There was lots of space between the tents and plenty of open space for our son to play.
    The wc and shower block was clean and I had no problem using the facilities, they were never busy.
    Our host was welcoming and text before we arrived and when we left.
    We’ll definitely be returning, thank you for a relaxing stay.

    We stayed during Storm Francis. The owner ensured we were ok and was very accomodating to ensure we were safe during the storm. The children had a great time having a BBQ and toasting marshmallows on the fire pit. Facilities were clean and the large tent was enormous which catered for all out needs. Bonus was having an electrical point in the tent. We will definitely return soon.

    Nothing to dislike apart from the wind from the storm.

    Loved the bell tent. The double bed and flip out beds were comfortable and the position of the tent was sunny, spacious and private. Simple and basic facilities which were relatively clean and typical of a campsite. Plenty of hot water and liked the fact that we were provided with a torch which was essential for evening visits as the toilet area is tucked away in the corner and our tent was positioned quite a distance from the facilities which suited us fine. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and we paid extra for the fire pit and logs which made the stay magical in the evening. The site is in a great position, loved the cows in the next field and the walk along the water was lovely. Visited the local pubs for food which were reasonably priced and thankfully we were lucky with the weather. A great break!!

    Disliked: 

    We didn't dislike anything at all but found it a little strange that we did not see any site staff at all. The entry and exit system was very straightforward but if we had have had an issue, it wasn't really clear as to who we should have contacted.

From the manager...

Hi there, thank you for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay! Just so you know we ensure that there are contact numbers available on our welcome pack in addition to contacting guests via text on the day of their arrival incase of any queries or issues. :)

    We were the farthest away from the toilet block and walking over there late at night could have done with some lights around the site.

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.

Must see

  • The Lace Market Centre (11.6 kilometers)
  • Nottingham Castle (12.2 kilometers)
  • Wollaton Hall and Park (15.9 kilometers)
