We have four camping fields, each with their own character. All campsites have a maximum of 55 people and are all equipped with a solid wet weather shelter and concrete fire base (all fires must be altar fires). There are four wash blocks, each with flush toilets, washbasins and showers. We will endeavor to give each group their own block, but at busy times, you may be asked to share. Fridges and freezers are available in Dale Barn for campers using any of the camping fields.
Bolsover Camping Kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, microwave, hot-water heater and washing machine. It is available for use by campers wishing to cook indoors and can be booked by the hour or for a full 24 hours. This can be booked at the time of booking your camping field.
Coles Corner is situated at the top of the car park, it has a flat area that gently slopes towards the back of Plimsoll. There is a campfire located at the top of this campsite, although it does not have any permanent seating is perfect for summer evenings.
The Orchard was once a walled garden complete with greenhouses which serviced the old Whiteley Wood Hall. Situated below the Renwick building, the Orchards high walls give it a warm secure feeling and is the only camping field with electricity in it’s spacious wet weather shelter. The field is relatively flat with just a couple of apple trees and this campsite also has the added benefit of a cooking shelter.
Winders Field is the campsite area just below the Swannery. This is the site of the old Whiteley Wood Hall which stood proud until it’s demise in 1959. The saluting base located along the edge of the field was build as a memorial to the hall and contains the original date stone; this was built on the site of the old beech drive and would have overlooked the old hall. You can enjoy the history of Whiteley Woods amoungst the gentle slopes and mature trees.
The Swannery is the first camping field you will see on arrival to the centre and is situated next to the drive. It is a large, flat, open site surrounded by mature trees and looks down onto Winders Field; the site of the old Whiteley Wood Hall. It is the closest field to the toilets & shower blocks making it ideal for the the less able bodied.
