Shelford Nurseries Caravan Park is nestled at the bottom of Shelford Hill in the heart of Trent valley. Despite being only 8 miles from Nottingham’s bustling shopping centre, we are a green and pleasant site with the loudest noise usually birdsong.

The loudest noise is usually birdsong.

There are many delightful local walks to keep the nature lovers happy as well as any visiting dogs, and on your way home, be sure to stop off in the local village pub for some well deserved refreshment.

The local villages also have a good selection of pubs, restaurants and bistros to suite every taste and if you don’t feel like venturing out, there are local take-away restaurants that can deliver.

As well as being close to historic Nottingham, we are equally convenient for Newark with its antiques shops and romantic castle ruins, Leicester with its new Space Centre and Lincoln with its majestic Minster.


Presently we can only welcome adults.

The campsite has 23 pitches in total, including 17 with hook ups and 4 hard standing. The remainder are on flat, well-drained grass.

We also have a small bar popular with campers and locals alike, a toilet block with showers and washing up room at the side of the shower block.

There are also waste water and chemical disposal points available.

Local Attractions

Shelford is small quiet and peaceful, a traditional farming village. There is a playing field on East Street with a children’s play area and football goal. The Church, St Peter and St Paul is well worth a visit. There is a pub, at the other end of the village, The Earl of Chesterfield. There are many walks surrounding the village in the unspoiled countryside please ask for directions. The nearest large supermarket, a Morrisons superstore, is 6 miles away at Gamston, just off the A52 towards Nottingham. The nearest garage is 2 miles away at the Saxondale roundabout on the A52 towards Bingham. For more on the local area you can go to the Visit Nottingham web site.
