Thornton’s Holt Camping Park: Exciting New Developments Underway Following Takeover by The Camping and Caravanning Club

The article from Nottinghamshire Live discusses new plans for Thornton’s Holt Camping Park in Stragglethorpe, near Radcliffe on Trent, following its acquisition by The Camping and Caravanning Club in November 2023. The 13.5-acre site, which has been a family-run business for 30 years and dates back to the 1960s, currently accommodates up to 175 tents, caravans, and motorhomes.

Key changes proposed in the new planning application to Rushcliffe Borough Council include relocating the entrance barrier, extending the existing hardstanding pitch to full standard size, and replacing three hardstanding pitches with grass surfacing, while adding three new hardstanding pitches opposite.

The Camping and Caravanning Club aims to upgrade the site to meet the standards of their Club Site network, which includes nearly 100 campsites around the UK. Upgrades will include improvements to services such as electric supplies to pitches. Additionally, plans are in place to create a dedicated area for the on-site team, who

will live on site in their own caravans or motorhomes. This area will have dedicated pitches, an access road, and fencing, ensuring that staff are well accommodated.

The spokesperson for The Camping and Caravanning Club expressed excitement about the refurbishments and the reopening of the site as Nottingham Club Site later in the year. They highlighted the importance of ensuring the site meets the Club’s standards and the anticipation of welcoming campers back to this popular location.

The refurbishment and expansion of Thornton’s Holt Camping Park signify a commitment to enhancing the camping experience in Nottinghamshire, aligning with the Club’s reputation for quality and service. Campers can look forward to upgraded facilities and services, making their stay more comfortable and enjoyable.
