Well behaved dogs allowed on leads at all times. Riverside site in grounds of a 17th-century house in Nottinghamshire Close to Sherwood Forest and 25 miles from Nottingham Cave bar on site open on Bank Holidays You'll sense the history all around you at The Old Vicarage, from the old house to the remains of the water mill in the river bed. Stays here are in the grounds of a 17th-century house in the village of Elkesley, six miles from Worksop and 25 miles from Nottingham. Its grounds run down to the banks of the Poulter river, and are lined with stands of acacia, sycamore, ash and oak trees which were originally donated to the first vicar by the Duke of Newcastle in the 1830s. There's plenty of space around the site for traditional outdoor activities, with a rope swing and stepping stones over the shallow river and a bridge that's perfect for playing Pooh Sticks. In the surrounding area there are animal parks and nature reserves to walk around, or to head back further in time, you could take one of the trails through ancient Sherwood Forest, around quarter of an hour's drive away. Guest facilities on site centre around the Cave Bar, a cool little space built into an exposure of 500-million-year-old sandstone, plus an outdoor terrace for sipping drinks out in the sunshine. Other amenities include a washing-up area and bathrooms with plentiful hot showers, toilets and baby changing facilities.

Family glamping near Chester guide

Overview

Tucked in the elbow of the River Dee at the border of England and Wales, Chester is all about family fun and outdoor adventures. Once you’ve explored the city’s Roman walls, Tudor-style townhouses, and ancient amphitheater, plan a day trip to Cheshire Zoo, one of the UK’s most famous wildlife attractions, or take to the water to boat, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard along the River Dee. Campers have plenty of options, from holiday parks and caravan parks with electric hookups and full amenities to tranquil riverside campgrounds, country lodges, or rural Hipcamps set amid rolling farmlands.

Where to go

Clwydian Range And Dee Valley AONB

Grassy peaks and heather-blanketed uplands lie over the border in North Wales, just a 40-minute drive from Chester. Bring your tent or drive your campervan into the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to hike and mountain bike across wild moorlands, discover Iron-Age hillforts and historic villages, and kayak along scenic canal ways.

River Mersey

North of Chester, the mighty River Mersey flows from Liverpool to Stockport, affording plenty of options for riverside camping. Rent a houseboat to cruise the famous river, head into Liverpool to watch a football (soccer) match or follow in the footsteps of The Beatles, or snag a coastal campsite at Crosby Beach or Formby Beach along the Irish Sea coast.

Peak District National Park

Just an hour’s drive east of Chester, the Peak District National Park is Britain’s first national park and remains one of its most popular destinations for hiking, cycling, and rock climbing. Campers have endless choices here, whether you prefer pitching your tent in the backcountry, cozying up in a luxury glamping tent, or parking your caravan on a local farm.

When to go

Summer is the liveliest—and sunniest—time to visit Chester, when you can make the most of the outdoor theatre in Grosvenor Park or head to the Moonlight Flicks outdoor cinema at Chester Cathedral. The Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival (April/May) also pulls in the crowds, but watch out for seasonal showers—spring and autumn weather can be temperamental, so tent campers should come prepared.
