The campsite is set at the foot of our 2 acre property, surrounded by fields and a wild garden. It’s a beautiful, peaceful space suitable for up to 15 pitches. We want your stay to be special and offer a number of features which we think make a big difference.
There is no electricity for the pitches. Commercial and twin-axle vehicles are not allowed.
Half the fun of camping is taking the chance to enjoy some great food. As well as a lot of local produce available in the area we have our own veg garden and fruit trees and you can buy seasonal vegetables and home-made jams and chutneys on site. And if you book ahead we may be able to sort out a loaf or two of Andy’s delicious homemade bread.
Are you a first time camper looking to see if you like camping? Or just looking to travel light? Don’t worry, you can rent everything you need. We can provide a tent, sleeping mats, pillows, and sleeping bags. Do let us know in advance though please, if you just turn up and our kit is already hired out it could be a cold night.
We also have cooking and drinks packs for you to rent which give you everything you need. You just need to buy the food! Drinks Pack: Tea/Coffee/Milk/Kettle/Mugs. Cooking Pack: Stove/Cooking Pots/Utensils/Cutlery/Plates/Oil/Spices. BBQ Pack: Same as cooking pack but with BBQ instead of stove. Please book ahead as these go quickly.
From our spot in North Nottinghamshire there is so much to see and do! Little Oak Camping is surrounded by beautiful countryside for you to explore. For foodies, there is a great gastro-pub within an easy walk, and a cheap and cheerful alternative for when you are in the mood to save some pennies. And you are in easy walking distance (1.5m / 3km) to Retford , a charming Nottinghamshire market town with its many independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and canal!
There are lovely walks around the campsite. And Sherwood Forest is just 20 minutes away by car. There you can wander among the trees, or view the forest from up high with Go Ape! For something a little different you can go see Ice Age rock art at Creswell Crags. For the more adventurous walkers, the peak district is just over an hour away.
City lovers will be spoilt for choice with great road and rail access to Lincoln, York , Sheffield, Nottingham, Doncaster, and Leeds. Lincoln is stunning with its beautiful Cathedral and Castle which contains a copy of the Magna Carta. York is a beautiful historic town, suitable for young and old with family attractions like the Viking Centre, York Dungeons, Railway Museum and the Chocolate Story. Sheffield has some beautiful gardens and an excellent art gallery. Nottingham is an hours drive away and there are caves under the city!
If you love history then there are 3 castles to visit (Lincoln, Bolsover, Conisbrough) and wonderful stately homes and parks to roam (Newstead Abbey, Rufford Abbey, Hardwick Hall). Chatsworth is just over an hour away if you want to see where the BBC Pride and Prejudice was filmed or more recently The Duchess played by Keira Knightley.
