The Camping and Caravanning Club Conkers site is one of about twenty of the Club’s sites that is open all year round. Although late into the autumn, the site was fairly busy – probably well over half full. The site is a few miles from the M42 motorway and is easily found, with or without satnav.
The site is adjacent to a disused railway line and this forms one of the many walking and cycling routes in the area. Our four-legged friends will be spoiled for choice where to go! There are also walks by the recently restored canal network.

It is worth noting the site is very open, so bring good pegs if you are putting an awning or sun canopy out. However, the lack of trees ensures great TV & satellite reception!

Eating and drinking near to the Camping and Caravanning Club Conkers
Next door to the Camping and Caravanning Club Conkers, you will find he a youth hostel offering a bar with drinks, snacks and also a bistro. A pub is within walking distance and slightly further afield is an American 50’s diner – the latter was highly recommended to me by locals but I did not have time to try it!
Burton on Trent town centre can be reached by bus, service number 9A operated by Arriva. The same bus also serves the bustling market towns of Ashby de la Zouch and Swadlincote, both offering a good selection of shops and supermarkets.
