sleepy spot Sherwood Pines

Post by Louey »

Anyone know of a good sleepy spot/wild camping place near Sherwood Pines. I fancy going there next weekend for a spot of mountain biking.

Or if there is a cheap campsite locally.

I was there yesterday!
Don't know about a wild camping spot, I think they close all the gates and kick you out in the evening.

Clumber Park have a NT campsite that's not too dear. They don't allow big motorhomes but I asked them today and we would be classed as a car and an awning your tent, so will be going to try this out soon.

They don't have electric, but showers were nice and clean.

There are also cycle routes around Clumber Park too, not as fun as Sherwood Pines though.

Have a look at Grassmoor Country Park, Birkin Lane. There's a small car park with no closed at night barrier that I pass frequently that could make a good sleepy spot.
Are we going on anything else?
