Boat Lane Caravan and Camping

8.1

This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

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.

    Showers where hot and didn't keep going off

    Disliked: 

    No privacy in the showers. If anyone tall walked past (mens) they could easily see in.
    Lights went out in the ladies whilst in the shower! Limited space in the shower to dress.
    Kerry the warden was pleasant but played rock music loud till past midnight. Not good rock music!

    The pitches were flat and spacious. The facilities were very clean and smelled fresh always. Good hot electric showers. Next to the river, a lovely walk into Fiskerton. The manager was friendly and helpful and clearly works very hard. Only 25 minutes away but felt like I was miles away. Definitely going back next year!

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.
