Campsite

General

  • Deep in the Nottinghamshire countryside near Sherwood Forest
  • Surrounded by fields and a wild garden
  • Fresh produce, chutneys and jams for sale

Liza and Andy have set all up very much oak-ay at Little Oak Campsite deep in the Nottinghamshire countryside near Robin Hood land and Sherwood Forest – sites run by campers are always very much an oak-ay thing. It's a small and back to basics site, that feels peaceful and secluded despite not being far from civilisation.

Little Oak is near the north Nottinghamshire market town of Retford and is surrounded by fields and a handsome wild garden – just the place for a bit of hide and seek, football or general running around...? This is a cosy place for couples too on quieter weekends, and is a good stopover spot for journeys north or south or vice versa as it's only three miles from the A1.

Other most welcome little touches are the seasonal produce on sale from the Little Oak vegetable patch as well as homemade chutneys and jams from the site fruit trees. There's also a lovely park pond packed with little fish and wildlife (but please take care to monitor small campers around the pond).

Little Oak has a newly renovated shower and toilet block for guests' use, but there's no electricity on the field. Campfires and barbecues are allowed and a gastropub serving food at reasonable prices is a short walk away.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

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

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

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).

    We loved this site. We had a friendly welcome from the owners and really enjoyed using the fire pit. The toilets and showers were very clean and ‘covid secure’. It’s right on the edge of town, though doesn’t feel like it when you’re there so is in a great location. We’ll definitely be back.

A really great place to relax!09/07/2020

    The little oak campsite was absolutely wonderful, from the warm welcome to the beautiful surroundings, to the friendly neighbourhood dog, it was just what we needed for our last night of camping.

    The site is really lovely, with a pond and fruit trees, which add to the appeal of the place. There are fire pits that you can use and the ability to have an open fire, roast marshmallows and just relax was just what we needed after a long days drive.

    Its a small site and relatively easy to get to from the A1 (which we were on). The site has taken great care over the COVID Situation and all of the facilities felt well looked after and everything was extremely clean, which really put our minds at ease.

    Overall we loved our stay at little Oak Campsite, it was such a great place to go to, to relax for a night and we would highly recommend it.

Local attractions

Several walks start straight from the site, or you could see the forest from high up with a swing in the trees at Go Ape. Adventurous/energetic walkers can tramp the Peak District just over an hour away or critique Ice Age rock art at Creswell Crags.

Elsewhere, history fans have three castles (Lincoln, Bolsover and Conisbrough) to visit and grand stately homes and parks to roam such as Rufford Abbey, Harwick Hall and Lord Byron's ancestral home Newstead Abbey. Chatsworth, setting for the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and the film The Duchess, is just over an hour away.

City slickers at Little Oak Campsite can take their pick from trains to Lincoln, York and Sheffield and Doncaster. All these could be waxed lyrical about at great length, but quick recommendations include Lincoln's castle and cathedral (which has a copy of the Magna Carta, democracy fans); York for the Jorvik Viking Centre, York Dungeons, the Railway Museum and the Chocolate Story, and Sheffield for its gardens and art gallery. Nottingham is about an hour's drive away.

Kids have Captain Jack's soft play and the Sundown theme park (for under 10s) to trot along to, or the Wetlands' animal park to feed animals like llamas, deer and wallabies. Or have wheely good fun at the Wheelgate all-weather adventure park which has a new waterpark among its many things to do. Looking for something a bit more old-fashioned? Pick your own fruit just down the road from the campsite.

Feeling sporty? Try Doncaster Race Course, Trent Bridge cricket ground and, right next door, the Nottingham Forest and Notts County football grounds.

Finally, the active and energetic will find loads to do in the area too: ask Andy and Liza about the local fishing, clay pigeon shooting, golf, quad bikes, rock climbing, abseiling, canyoning, caving, go-karting, pony trekking, paintball...

Unless otherwise mentioned, all the above can be reached within 40 minutes.
