Guests Ask

What should I pack when visiting Nottinghamshire?

Pack for the weather – layers are key in the UK! Include waterproofs for those unpredictable rain showers. Don't forget your swimwear, comfortable walking shoes for exploring, and a camera to capture the memories. If you're staying at a place like Clumber Park Caravan Club Site, bring bikes to take advantage of the trails.

Is Nottinghamshire a good place to visit ‘off-season’?

Absolutely, Nottinghamshire's charm isn't just a summer fling. Off-season visits mean fewer crowds and cosy evenings in your holiday park lodge. Attractions like The Wheelgate Park may have reduced hours, but you'll still enjoy the tranquillity of places like Robin Hood's Wheelgate Park without the queues.

Will my hot tub be cleaned before we arrive?

Yes, if your holiday park accommodation includes a hot tub, it'll be spick and span for your arrival. Parks like Haywood Oaks Golf and Country Club pride themselves on cleanliness and hygiene, so you can slip into those bubbles worry-free.

Can we bring our pets to the holiday park?

Many holiday parks in Nottinghamshire are pet-friendly, like Teversal Camping and Caravanning Club Site. Always check the park's pet policy before booking, though. Some may have specific accommodations for pet owners, and there might be a small extra charge.

How do we book activities, and do they need to be booked in advance?

Booking activities can usually be done online or at the park's reception. For popular attractions like Go Ape Sherwood, it's wise to book in advance to secure your spot. During peak times, pre-booking is a must to avoid disappointment.

Are there any discounts available for local attractions?

Yes, holiday parks often have partnerships with local attractions. Check with the reception at your park, like Redhill Marina, for discount vouchers or special offers. It's a great way to save a few quid on family outings to places like White Post Farm or The National Ice Centre.

What dining options will we find at the holiday park?

Most parks have on-site eateries ranging from cafes to restaurants. For example, Sherwood Castle Holiday Forest has a restaurant that serves up hearty meals. If you fancy cooking, accommodations often include kitchen facilities, and local shops are usually a stone's throw away for supplies.

What's the best way to get around Nottinghamshire from the holiday park?

Having a car is handy, especially for rural parks. However, Nottinghamshire has a decent public transport network. Buses and trains can get you to major attractions. Some parks, like Orchard Park, might even offer bike hire, which is perfect for nearby trails or short trips to the local village.
