Find the perfect resting spot in Notts

Clumber Park Camping

Summer is well on the way and the time has come to think about where to rest your head during those longed-for summer holidays. Whether you’re visiting relatives or Robin Hood, Nottinghamshire has a wealth of accommodation across the county to suit your needs.

We’ve compiled a handy list of just some of the more unique ways to spend a night in Notts.

Think outside four walls
Not all overnight stays need be indoors. Why not experience Nottinghamshire’s lush countryside and open spaces, with a stay beneath the stars? From pitching up your own tent at one of many campsites, to sleeping in a wigwam at Clumber Park; explore the great outdoors with the benefits of freedom and fresh air. 

Hide in the Forest
Make like Robin Hood and spend a night in Sherwood forest! You’ll find luxury cabins tucked away amidst ancient oaks and woodland, in Robin Hood’s old stomping ground. Hidden away, but with all modern amenities, you’ll feel right at home amongst the trees.

Pamper yourself
Take a step back from the rush of modern life and indulge yourself with a little ‘me’ time. With a range of hotels and spas offering pampering packages, let others look after, you deserve it.

Command your own vessel
Discover the winding waterways with a stay on a barge. Hire a Canal Boat, take command of the steering, and moor up along the canals of Nottinghamshire, at your own pace.

Down on the farm.
Nottinghamshire is known for its rural charm, and what better way to appreciate this simpler way of life than to spend time at the heart of the action, on a farm stay. With delicious breakfasts made from local ingredients, and with a chance to get your hands dirty, a farm break is the ideal opportunity for families looking for a break from suburbia.
