Our first trial run in the motorhome was a bit of a washout, sadly! But that didn’t dampen our spirits.
We made the short journey to Clumber Park Caravan Club Site.
We headed down after a very hot spell of weather so I was lulled into a false sense of security and only packed a few pairs of trousers. Along came the rain, which was a real shame because this site and surrounding area was made for long walks and bike rides.
The site is set in 4,000 acres of woodland and has a National Trust site nestled in the middle.
The site itself was reasonable, if a little dated. It had the usual playground for the kids, wash hut with kids bathroom, washing up and laundry (which proved very useful when we got back from our soaking 4 mile walk from Worksop)! It also has a useful information hut.
On Fridays they have a fish and chip van which is very popular and very reasonable at £6.50 for a standard portion. The kids loved it when we arrived!
There wasn’t a lot to do in Worksop at all for the kids so we just ended up eating! We found a nice pub called the White Lion which did an amazing steak and ale pie.
When the kids got cabin fever we decided to just don our wellies and waterproofs and splash in the puddles. Our youngest is just walking so it was nice for her to get out and about a bit!
All in all, not a bad first trip. We forgot a few bits but nothing essential. We’ve made a note and will get ourselves geared up for a longer trip to France later in the summer.
