Nottingham Nature Lakes: Site view

General

  • Peaceful site near lakes, a sailing club and the river Trent
  • A 20-minute drive from Newark or Lincoln city centre
  • Kids' play area and free wifi; a few minutes' walk from fishing lakes

Head to Nottingham Nature Lakes if you're a fan of all things aquatic: this well-maintained park is close to peaceful fishing lakes, a sailing club and riverside strolls along the Trent. Land-based activities are also on the cards – a golf club, nature reserve and three pubs can all be reached in a 10-minute drive or less. Several major roads are also nearby, making it a doddle to head out to nearby towns and cities like Newark and Lincoln.

Families are welcome to settle down on a patch of this 13-acre site – the park has a popular play area where the kids can get up to all their usual antics in a safe and friendly environment. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome here (and there's plenty of scope for walkies along the peaceful lanes located directly opposite the site).

Nottingham Nature Lakes also has lots of practical bases covered thanks to amenities like free wifi, a smart toilet and shower block (with disabled access), a washing-up area and picnic benches. The latter may very well come in handy if you have self-barbecued bites in the pipeline (drive 10 minutes down the road to the nearest farm shop for particularly fine things to cook up).

    Where too start,toilets abysmal, no soap or hand drying facilities, Co head toilets yet urinal is outside a cubicle so women could unknowingly walk out too a bloke using it,shower absolute joke,shower tray on breeze blocks is a 1st,kids play area=2 swings,guard dogs that belong too the owners that bark throughout the night,booming music until 3am from a nearby house,ehu point amongst a huge bed off nettles,WILL NOT revisit or recommend ,
    P.s a caravan and camping club certified site,if that's the standards you get then you can stick your subscription were the sun don't shine.there is alot better out there for less money,very very poor .

Basic Campsite. Facilities are in need of an upgrade.06/07/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Quiet and simple campsite. Swing for the kids and an open space in the middle for games etc...

    Disliked: 

    Toilet and shower facilities not great. Toilet leaked all over the floor when flushed
    Shower tray is built 2 foot off the ground on breeze blocks? Door was very stiff for the shower plus there was no handle on the inside, so you couldn't really pull it shut and lock it.

    At night between the hours of 11PM until early hours the owners dogs were outside (in a kennel I'm guessing) barking. Constantly.

Local attractions

Sporty folk should find plenty to keep them busy around here – if you fancy having the run of a 100-acre lake, get in touch with the friendly local boating club (10 minutes’ walk) to sort lessons or freestyle sails. Joggers, cyclists, dog walkers and the like will find similar amounts of space (and peace and quiet) at Spalford Woods Nature Reserve (10 minutes' walk).

The nearby market town of Newark (20 minutes' drive), meanwhile, is a hive of local history – here you can stroll around high castle walls, delve into England's 17th-century past at the National Civil War Centre or learn about all things aeronautical just outside town at the Newark Air Museum (15 minutes). For more grand old buildings and narrow cobbled streets, head 20 minutes up the road to Lincoln.

Kids clamouring to be entertained? Sundown Adventureland (15 minutes), with its giant soft play area and Angry Birds zone, is a tried-and-tested hit with younger tots, while older teens may well prefer zapping each other at Frontline Combat Lasertag (15 minutes). Animal fans of all ages should set their sights on Messingham Zoo (40 minutes), where fuzzy, furry and spiky beasts abound.

Must see

  • Lincoln Castle (9.4 miles)
  • Lincoln Medieval Bishops' Palace (9.5 miles)
  • Lincoln Cathedral (9.5 miles)
