General

  • Off-grid wild camping by fishing lakes in Nottinghamshire countryside
  • A 15-minute drive to Belvoir Castle, and 20 minutes to Newark-on-Trent
  • Woodland pitches and angling, close to shops, pubs and stately houses

Encompassing a 232-acre site in glorious Nottinghamshire countryside, Belvoir Waters is an eco-friendly, wild-camping spot with one golden rule: be as environmentally thoughtful as possible. You’re left to your own devices to find your perfect pitch among natural woodland, surrounded by three lakes covering 80 acres of water.

This is a serene place where couples and families can wander around the lakes and stroll the woodland walks, listening out for some of the 180 bird species spotted in the area. Well-behaved dogs are welcome too – and keen anglers, line up here please, as you can fish on the lakes – and tuition is available for novices (at a fee).

You’ll need to be self-sufficient and bring all your own camping gear, but you can park by your pitch, so there’s no lugging of equipment across fields for you. As the site is completely off grid, it’s best to add in a barbecue as well as bits and bobs for cooking when you’re packing.

But don’t worry too much – anything you’ve forgotten you can pick up in Newark-on-Trent (20 minutes’ drive), which has plenty of supermarkets as well as fish and chip shops or Chinese takeaways. Newark Royal Market (Wednesday) has been held in the market square pretty much non-stop since the 12th century, and it’s a special treat to rummage around the stalls for fresh local produce.

Beautiful scenery and super site with plenty of privacy10/01/2022

    I wasn't sure where I was going, so I called the owner, who met me and I followed him to the most idyllic site. I had complete peace and quiet for 3 days and it was blissful. I sat and listened to the birds and wildlife over a bbq and couldn't have been happier. I went kayaking on the lake, which was fabulous. I plan to go back whenever I can.

    Incredible place for quiet, almost wild camping. Loved having a lake to jump into first thing in the morn. Totally offers the space to live in the ‘now’. Great service and welcome but then left to just quietly get on with it.

    Was the feel of camping in nature with the security of private land, nearest neighbour was nowhere in sight and the whole of the site was amazing to walk around, beautiful lake to paddle in and forest to pick up sticks for the camp fire, hands down the best camping experience of my life

Local attractions

Belvoir Castle (15 minutes’ drive) may well be your first stop. Built in the early 19th century, it has adventure playgrounds and woodland paths for kids and dogs to run around in, as well as guided tours of the 'big house'. When you’ve had your fill of history, you can replenish energy levels at the restaurants, ice-cream parlours and unusual shops at The Engine Yard retail village.

Lovers of old houses might also like to glance over Elizabethan-era Wollaton Hall (40 minutes) and its manicured parkland – they do a spooky ghost tour (one way to make the kids behave) and lots of Tudor-themed events during summer.

If you’d prefer to get more active on your hols, there are plenty of cycling and walking trails – for all levels – all around the campsite. There’s also a riding school (five minutes), a couple of golf courses and a public swimming pool (all 20 minutes).
