Boat Lane Caravan and Camping: Campsite

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 40 minutes' walk

Fancy a riverside retreat in Robin Hood country? Boat Lane Caravan and Camping has a berth for you. A 40-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.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that people kept you awake. Unfortunately other peoples chilldren are out of our control. we do ask them to keep an eye on them but in the end that is down to the parents/guardians. unless we are made aware at the time there is little we can do.

    Large, friendly site close to the banks of the Trent. Good clean facilities .. pleasantly surprised to find a kitchen with communal fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster. A short pretty walk from Bleasby Station means this site is easily accessible without a car from Nottingham. Close to river for some lovely walks

Quiet, low-key site in lovely village with riverside walks close by.08/08/2022

  • Liked: 

    The site managers Mel and Olive were very welcoming. We like this site because it is in a quiet location, peaceful and low-key. The facilities have improved since we were last here 4 years ago. There was plenty of room to spread out.

    Disliked: 

    1. The site could do with more washing, toilet and kitchen facilities for the number of people it can take.
    2. It is a shame that the pub in the village is only doing limited meals, it used to be really good, they are missing a trick with the campers.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We will be looking at the toilet facilities etc over the winter months. The pub i have heard was great and i know they have had issues with their chef, but hopefully that will change,

    Really friendly host and a lovely site. Not over crowded with a mix of guests, kids enjoying a rope swing on the tree. A bit old school as not overly done up which made it feel comfortable. Facilities clean and without spiders! It’s a short walk to local pub! I only stayed a night but could have done more.

    Disliked: 

    Have to purchase toilet roll from site office

From the manager...

We are so glad you enjoed your stay. Yes like me there are very few spiders.... well at least ones you cant see :)
The situation with the loo rolls is a shame, unfortunately we were loosing 40 to 50 in a week due to people taking them so we had to change to giving them on arrival and then purchasing them. i do apologise if you were not given one on arrival, if you werent.

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. we are a complete grass site however the hot weather and no rain means the site unfortunately does look rather baren. We are in the middle of the countryside so yes, a car is needed if you wish to travel further.

    Disliked: 

    All firepits and logs must be rented from site, electric outlet not ready to use without conversion cable, toilet paper was withdrawn from toilets without notice.

From the manager...

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. I did try to sort out the cable for you before realising you needed a european connection. Yes we do rent out firepits and logs.Our electrical outlets are for standard uk hook ups and we do not unfortunately have conversion cables. The toilet paper was withdrawn on site at the begining of the weekend and notices placed in the toilets. Paper as mentioned was available from the warden. Unfortunately this was withdrwan due to too many people stealing them.

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.

Must see

  • The Lace Market Centre (17.5 kilometres)
  • Nottingham Castle (18.1 kilometres)
  • Belvoir Castle (18.3 kilometres)
