Boat Lane Caravan and Camping: Boats at Boat Lane

General

  • Peaceful Nottinghamshire park, a 10-minute walk from the River Trent
  • Half an hour's drive from Nottingham; 45 minutes from Sherwood Forest
  • Pubs with food, boat hire and fishing within 10 minutes' walk

Fancy a riverside retreat in Robin Hood country? Boat Lane Caravan and Camping has a berth for you. A 10-minute walk to the banks of the River Trent and a pair of popular pubs with grub, this site sits on a spot of prime Nottinghamshire countryside.

They keep things simple at Boat Lane, allowing you enjoy the peace of its spacious tree-lined meadow with minimum fuss. There are hot showers in the well-maintained washrooms, a washing-up area for your pots and pans and everyone has access to a communal fridge for perishables (or Prosecco...). There’s plenty of room for the kids to run about and a playground if you prefer them to stay in one place; dogs, like everyone else and barbecues, are welcome.

The owners recommend a 10-minute riverside walk to the pub at Fiskerton (three minutes by car), followed by a boat ride down and/or across the Trent. The Domesday Book records a ferry crossing here in the 11th-century, so why not make like a medieval in a rowing boat?

If you’d rather explore the waters without tiring yourself, make for Gunthorpe (quarter of an hour away) for a river cruise or take your rods to Bleasby lake (a mere three minutes away) for day permit fishing.

  • Liked: 

    Staff were friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Showers are no good, not marked out pitches which means everyone is pitched up really close. Electric hook-up did not work when we arrived so had to talk to one of the staff to get it working again - this also happened on our first visit.

Local attractions

A major hub since the days of Robin and his Merry Men, Nottingham (half an hour by car) still draws the crowds. Tour the castle and the caves, take a glass of ale in Ye Trip To Jerusalem (one of many contenders for the oldest pub in England crown), skate on ice at Motorpoint Arena and see how far law and order’s come since the Sheriff’s time in the National Justice Museum.

Sherwood Forest, three quarters of an hour away, harbours no brigands these days; within the nature reserve, country park and Sherwood Pines Forest Park you will find 450 acres of wildlife with among ancient oak trees and a wealth of biking and walking trails taking you through them. Traverse the tree-tops on ropes and wires at Go Ape, or let the kids loose on Robin Hood’s Hideout, an acclaimed natural play area; on your way back, call in at Ferry Farm Country Park a quarter of an hour from the site, to pet the pigs, feed the lambs, zoom about on go-karts and get adventurous on the adventure playground.

If the ancient forest’s fired you up about history, make for Newark (25 minutes) with its castle, National Civil War Centre and Air Museum. Or to feel as if you stepped back in time, take the 45-minute trip to Wollaton Hall, where herds of red and fallow deer roam round a lake in the grounds of a stately Elizabethan mansion.
