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.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

The café is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Reception is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

A cable measuring at least 10 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Coronavirus update: please note that the hall and tea rooms will remain closed until further notice.

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.

    Great retreat, quite, peaceful with big pitches lots to see and do around Newark which is within a nice flat walk of 3 miles or bus stop at the main gates to take you there. The grounds were also well kept great to walk the dog around and for the fishermen the river Trent only a minute away.
    This will defiantly be on our next years places to visit again list.

    Great place ! It was a rainy weekend in October and there was only a handful of other people there for the weekend, which was great for us. The kids loved it, plenty of space to run around and play in the gardens. We had a morning apple picking which was great fun. We didn’t use any of the facilities so not sure what they are like. The Fox Inn is just across the road. I would definitely recommend it for the weekend!
