    Looks like there is one in Bulwell which is the next town to Hucnall. Can't say what it is like though. :Doh:

    Hope the link works, if it doesn't it's called 'Blenheim Farm Caravan Park', Blenhei Lane, Bulwell, Nottingam NG6 8UR
    Tel 07773454723


    Blenheim Farm Caravan Park , Bulwell Campsite

    It is a problem in this country that many major cities and town do not have campsites with walking distance (many do not have them within ten miles).

    I think it would be a good idea if we had a database or list of all sites within walking distance of town centres on this site, anyone got any idea how to do it?

    You are right George.

    Sirhandel,

    We looked at this CL for our trip to see Riverdance in Nottingham next Saturday. I can confirm that there is a regular bus service that runs past the bottom of Lamins Lane, close to the site.

    However, we have gone for Redhill Marina , Nottingham Campsite, which is right next to the new Parkway Rail link at Ratcliffe On Soar. There are regular trains running until very late, and it's close to the M1 for our escape north, to God's country on the Sunday. :Rofl1:

    There are others here, Nottingham Campsites, Page 1 - Camping and Caravanning Directory

    HTH,

    Jock.

    live about 5 mins from here
    never seen this campsite near bulwell
    will go and look for you if you want
    about a five miute walk down morrisons will bring you to the nottingham tram which will take you to hucknall and back and these run fairly regular until late at night

    just looked at their website and found this

    We are a new site, opening on Saturday 4th April 2009.

    We are a Certificated Camping and Caravaning site with pitches for five caravans.

    Being within close proximity of Nottingham City we are ideal for a stay to see the sites and sounds of a vibrant city, yet within five minutes of getting in your car you can be in the depths of the Nottinghamshire countryside.

    can you get a bus from newstwead village to hucknall
    you can get the tram from bulwell to hucknall
    are you using your own transport to get to hucknall
    or there is a taxi i suppose
    isn't newstead village a little secluded for transport?
