  • Water- and land-based event centre in 270 acres of parkland
  • Easy access to Nottingham city centre, rail network and airport
  • Country walks, nature trails and lots to do for kids
What do you reckon is the main flavour of activities at this Nottinghamshire site? Yup, top of the menu at the Holme Pierrepont Country Park, near Nottingham are all sorts of watersports: you'll be able to tackle a whitewater course for canoeing, kayaking, rafting and tubing; paddleboarding, open-top canoeing and the inflatable assault course Wipe Out. But! This is a land-based activity centre too, so if you don't fancy plunging into the foamy depths or would quite like to stay dry for a day, other options can be tackled at the outdoor adventure zone where there's an aerial adventure course, miniature golf, a mini four-wheel drive course for kids, a kids' activity club and archery combat. A large play park, country walks and nature zones are also on site (please note some activities are subject to availability and must be booked at reception; early booking is advisable). Feeling a bit faint just from reading all this and think you'd rather spectate? The centre has kindly included a country park café and a regatta lake where it hosts its own events like rowing and canoe regattas, dragonboat racing and triathlons. Lots is on offer too to keep the kids amused, including a woodland adventure playground and a nature trail a short stroll away. Although all this energetic excellence is only 10 minutes' drive from Nottingham city centre, it's well into the countryside and away from anything townie, as it's deep in the 270 acres of parkland of Holme Pierrepont Country Park. The campsite part of the park covers 18 acres and has a facilities block with showers and toilets, and a site shop selling selected groceries and camping supplies.

Deluxe Arch 1 bedroom camping pod

Liked: The campus is well maintained, it looks great. People were polite, no noise after 10pm, even if there were larger groups in the area. Easy to operate, key codes for keys and toilets.

Disliked: The arch I've stayed in could've been cleaner, considering I've paid for a deluxe. The floor needed a good clean. The bed is nowhere near king size, as it says in the description, it's more like a double.

Powered cement/asphalt and grass travel trailer campsite

Liked: Pitch sizes , location for the lake ect . Pizza van .

Disliked: Showers awful, rotten and cold , most didn’t stay on for two seconds or just didn’t stay on . Was ask to move after our 3rd day to let someone else on , I had paid for 5 days , never heard anything like this in all my caravan/camping year’s ridiculous!!!! It’s not cheap , definitely not worth the money.
