Gunthorpe Camping: Public footpath or cycle route along the river going under the bridge

General

  • Spacious and grassy site on the banks of the River Trent
  • Watersports centre and several theme parks a short drive away
  • Riverside walks and bike rides, boat trips and restaurants nearby

Shoot along for a stay here… you'll have enough to do in scenic surrounds to keep you occupied for aeons.

Gunthorpe Camping is a small family-friendly site set on a level grassy paddock next to the River Trent, making it most handy for riverside walks and bike rides direct from the grounds, and canoeing, kayaking, fishing and boat trips all nearby. There's also the National Watersports Centre and Sundown Adventureland within 40 minutes' drive… and when you're tuckered out and back at base, several good bars and restaurants are within a short stroll.

The grassy paddock is open and surrounded by hedges and mature trees, so you'll have plenty of space to spread out as well as hunker down when the mood takes you. You should have a peaceful and comfy stay here too: the grounds are well-maintained and the showers in the bright clean washrooms have plenty of hot water.

Barbecues are allowed, so it's all systems go if you want to grill up an alfresco feast by the riverbank.

    Communication before and during stay, the location and local area, site and facilities were well maintained, site owner, Lesley popping by to check on us and that we found what we needed. Relaxed approach and all together to enjoy space.

    Disliked: 

    First thought was that very few shower/toilets, but this was never an issue over the long weekend, so would appear to be enough.

Relaxed atmosphere, open spaces, clean bathrooms. Lovely location, fri05/16/2022

  • Liked: 

    Relaxed atmosphere, open spaces, clean bathrooms. Lovely location, friendly hosts, Great to be able to have real BBQs.

    Large tent areas for sitting around, outdoor benches, area for washing was clean and well equipped.

    Animals roaming around (Guinea fowl). Other campers. Hidden gem, close to river, walls and great local amenities.

    It would be nice to have a play area or swings for kids (not essential as we were aware there wasn’t one before we booked).

    Disliked: 

    Long grass for kids playing and us walking. Waste disposal is very basic and not user friendly, especially without the running water (not sure what the trough is about!).

    Toilet rolls on back of door needed as they are quite cosy. WC doors that lock (just needs a new hole drilling in the frame).

    Beautiful, quiet site in a lovely location. We loved the views and the relaxed feel of the site. The pitches are flat and a very good size. Loved the contactless welcome by the owners- they provided clear instructions, access information and a phone number for any issues (we didn't have any issues).
    Good facilities which were kept well stocked.
    Local pubs are great, and the area has loads of well maintained paths for walking.
    Can't wait to stay again- we will certainly be back very soon.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at all.

Local attractions

Despite the industrial past and present, Nottinghamshire has many fab natural landscapes: the wetlands at Skylarks Nature Reserve, a 20-minute drive from the site are as rich with feathered life as any you'll see on TV nature channels.

For more adventurous hours, there's go-karting 15 minutes' drive away in Netherfield, and a massive array of high octane stuff (not all of it watery) at the National Watersports Centre (20 minutes' drive) including Segway rides, high ropes, wakeboarding and rafting.

Then there's Sherwood Forest and Sherwood Forest Pines Park 40 minutes away… a leafy combination of legend, history, nature reserve, country park and adventure centre, with hiking and biking trails through 450 acres of ancient oaks and wildlife. Adventureseekers can see it from the treetops on ropes and wires at Go Ape, and the kids can clamber about at the award-winning natural play area Robin Hood’s Hideout.

For family antics out of the forest, Sundown Adventureland (40 minutes) has rides and themed playgrounds for the under-10s; Twinlakes Park offers birds of prey shows and creepy critters along with its waterpark and rollercoaster rides, and for the real big-ride fanatics, it's an hour and a half to Alton Towers.

It's half an hour to Nottingham for tours of the castle and the caves, stopping for snifters in Ye Trip To Jerusalem and ice skating at Motorpoint Arena. You could also hire bikes for a trip through Colwick Country Park (20 minutes' drive), a pleasant combo of woodlands, lakes, meadows and playgrounds where you can swim, fish, walk, sail and spot wildlife.

Must see

  • The Lace Market Centre (11.6 kilometres)
  • Nottingham Castle (12.2 kilometres)
