expensive at £20 without hook up, £25 with, £2 per dog. Arrived and told to park anywhere. Next morning the owner then made us move to newly marked out bays we'd just watched him spray on the grass! (Because of council regulations) We moved and then got surrounded by campers who had a party (4 tents with a fire pit in the middle!). When it got even fuller he allowed people to park where he had moved us on from. The elsen point is up steps, difficult to use and medieval! NEVER AGAINView all reviews by martinrobinswinden

Great location in the grounds of the Kelham Hall country park. None electric are nestled into the woods. Electric pitches are around the edge of the main field. Play park for kids and nice woodland and river walks. Toilets are very basic, just portacabin type. By far not the best I've seen but they do the job. You can use shower and toilets in Kelham Hall which are much better. £25 for none electric and £30 per night electric I thought was expensive for the basic facilities.View all reviews by dolph587
Pulled onto field, had to go to hotel reception to check in, found a spot, connected ehu, wife went to the toilets, came back. Said the toilets and showers were disgusting and dirty, dried on crap all over the pans. Disconnected and left, went to milestones up A1. Much nicer, and cheaperView all reviews by filwud
Nice site, beautiful hall & grounds. Nice walk alongside the Trent. The toilet block was dated - ours was the one on the trailer. By the time we added electric, dog & awning the cost has added up to one of the most expensive we had been to. Nice location. Would go back but would probably try others in the area 1st.View all reviews by shakeywith
Great setting by the historical house & river Trent. Very quiet. We didn't need facilities in our motorhome but toilets/showers were temporary, no hot water when we tried. Toilet emptying was in a fairly grim tank that needed the lid unscrewing so bring a peg for your nose & rubber gloves. We will be back for the quiet setting. £20 or £25 for ehu.View all reviews by ben9090
This is a relatively new site in established grounds and will no doubt continue to have investment made in it. It can be quiet or, on occasion, heaving - as it is proving very popular for rally gatherings (always best to call and check how many you might be sharing facilities with!).View all reviews by fabfive
I grew up in the next village and spent hours in the grounds and along the banks of the adjacent River Trent as a child.
Kelham Hall is an old and rather beautiful building, designed by the same architect and in similar style to St Pancras Station in London, with the same red brickwork and marble pillars. The Hall was used for many years by an order of Monks and then taken over and used by Newark & Sherwood District Council. A deal was struck by the council to sell the building for development and use as a hotel and the council is currently having new premises built in Newark and will soon be vacating the building. The grounds and majority of the ground floor of the building were handed over to the new owner in advance of the council vacating. During this time, the new owner has been dedicated to using the amazing ground floor space of the Hall and the grounds to the approach and side of the building to provife opportunity to welcome visitors and users of the facilities from amongst the local community. This includes hosting Wedding and Special Event Fairs, Jousting and other outdoor events, Christmas Fair, a Wedding venue, concert venue, serving Sunday lunches, a crop maze for families in Summer, private river fishing for visitors and the change of use of the cricket ground and edge of the grounds to provide a campsite area. There are minimal showers that can be accessed by campers in Kelham Hall itself and further 'posh portacabin' facilities (of a more permanent nature) have now been added to the other side of the site. Rallies often attract many tents and these facilities may be very stretched if sharing with a Rally. Otherwise, facilities are clean and adequate and a number of EHUs are being installed. The main field is not however securely fenced from the main road and could be a security concern with small children and dogs - camp well away from the entrance road. Pitching is grass and currently unmarked, other than by location and proximity of the EHU points (if requiring these). The grounds offer walks around the Hall and small church which is also located in the grounds. There is a more formal garden area and then a grass area (part which can flood) running alongside the river bank. Kelham bridge crosses the river Trent next to the site / Kelham Hall and this is a key route into Newark. The road is busy but a footpath can be used by walkers or cyclists and it is approx 2 miles into the historic market town of Newark and its' castle. The Kelham Fox pub (serving food) and a bus stop (buses into Newark, the Minster town of Southwell and Mansfield) are just outside of a pedestrian gate.
A great site for a Rally or gathering with friends (particularly where there might be variety of motorhomes,, caravans and tents. Normally plenty of space (subject to events). May be some disturbance during 2017/18, as the District Council and workers relocate offices and the remainder of the adjoining Hall is being converted into luxury hotel facilities. Pretty sure the owners will be looking to minimise impact on other users of the camping or established Hall facilities though.
Price is currently a little high for the facilities afforded but the site will grow into the fees and it is evident that money is being invested in the continual improvements. A pleasant and easily accessible site for a short, relaxed stay.
