Mansfield (15 miles)- At the heart of "Robin Hood Country", this bustling modern town boasts one of the largest open-air markets in the country. Entertainment ranges from the sub-tropical fun pool at Water Meadows Swimming Complex to the Multiplex cinema or shows at the Palace Theatre.
Newark -(13 miles) A maze of narrow old-fashioned streets, the towering spire of one of England's largest parish churches, and a cobbled square lined with Georgian buildings are amongst the sights of Newark. The town was a Royalist stronghold during the English civil war, and the ruined castle by the river still bears the scars of battles past. Newark's speciality is antiques. There are numerous dealers in town and the famous Newark International Antiques Fair is held at the nearby showground six times a year.
Nottingham -(28 miles) Think of Nottingham and chances are, you will think of Robin Hood - the world's most famous outlaw. But, there is much more to Nottingham than Robin Hood! Often described as one of the country's 'best kept secrets', Nottingham is proud of its historical heritage but it is also fast developing a reputation as an exciting, vibrant, go-ahead European city of style.
We are sure you won't be disappointed and we hope you will be encouraged to visit and receive the warmest of welcomes here in Nottingham.
Retford -(8 miles) Handsome Georgian buildings and open air markets in the square add character to this north Nottinghamshire town, deep in "Pilgrim Fathers Country". To the south west lie the parks and forest of The Dukeries.
Southwell -(15 miles) This charming rural town has many elegant Georgian buildings and historic pubs, but its undisputed centrepiece is Southwell Minster. With its honey coloured stonework and unusual twin towers, the 12th century cathedral is one of the architectural gems of the Midlands.
Inside, visitors can admire "the leaves of Southwell", a series of fine medieval stonecarvings, and ponder over the mysterious "Green Men" faces hidden amongst the carved foliage.
Also visit 'The Workhouse' a superb National Trust refurbishment of the original workhouse.
Worksop -(15 miles) This busy little town in the north of the county is a local centre for shopping and entertainment, but what most visitors come to see is the splendid Norman Priory church, complete with ornate 14th century gatehouse.Visit 'Mr Shaw's House' National Trust

Our first time camping was at this site and if all sites are this good then we are in for some good times. It is absolutely spotless and so are the facilities. It is well layed out with big pitches. Play area for the kids and the orchard has been left in it's natural state with paths cut through it for a short walk, dog owners have thier own short dogwalk to the side of the site. Owners very helpful and friendly. Will definitely go again
