Also on site are the ultra cool camping cabins (pods and wigwams) starting from only £38.00 per night these cool pods provide great accommodation for up to 5 people (next time I visit will be trying out a pod) Not only do you have the option of the pods and wigwams but there is also a Mongolian Yurt a 22 foot tent sleeping up to 4 people more details on the Clumber campsite is here http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-visits/w-findaplace/w-clumber_park-2/w-clumber_campsite-now-open.htm

While camping in Clumber park, I had access to 3,800 acres of green open space, enjoyed walking down Europe’s longest double avenue of lime trees , which line the grand entrance. I hired a bike and went on a 20 mile bike route through the park, and enjoyed a meal in the on site restaurant, which used fresh ingredients picked from the Clumber park walled kitchen garden.

The walled Kitchen garden has a wealth of sights and smells to experience, from herbaceous borders, trees laden with heritage varieties of fruit.
