  • We paid £5 each for a guided tour of the hall, however we were only allowed to look at the downstairs rooms which are free and open to the general public anyway. That said the guide was very knowledge...  more »

  • Amazing place! Beautiful and interesting house with a variety of architecture. Most of it was designed by the same guy who designed St Pancra station in London. Loverly rooms to explore. And they had some wonderful events including the Christmas Fayre which we went to. Loads of stalls offering everything from 'Reindeer Pie' to leaher handbags (couldn't get my wifee away from that stall! Parkland and Riverside lovely for picnics etc. Free entry to the house too!
  • Camped here bank holiday weekend. It was really busy that weekend and the facilities couldn't cope. Blocked toilets and portaloes. There was some live music and a beer wagon over the weekend which was a bonus. Kelham hall itself is stunning and there were 2 playgrounds for the kids. Newark was probably a 5 min drive so good for a Potter around. My be go back next year if I remember.
  • I visited for a day because of a jousting event by the Knights of royal England. The show was great and the even was very well managed and entertaining. The facilities were good and it's a beautiful location
  • Hi, We stayed on your campsite from Friday the 9th of Sept until Sunday the 11th. When I phoned and booked ( short notice on Thursday 8th) I enquired about play facilities. I was informed about your indoor and outdoor play areas. I was not informed that you had a function on Saturday and the indoor play facilities would be off limits. As you will remember the weather on Saturday was not great so we trundled from our tent to the hall to let the kids indoor the indoor activities (one of the reasons we'd booked with you). This is when we were told we could not use them. We were spoken down to by the receptionist when we questioned why and then practically dismissed!!!! This led to 3 very upset Children!!! I could have let this over sight go but I was also really appalled and quite frankly disgusted at the state of the camp toilet block. The block attached to the hall were incredibly clean and couldn't be faulted. but the black that was immediately opposite my tent and quicker access for my young children were the dirtiest toilets I have ever come across in 6 years of camping. Twice over the weekend a sign was put up to say they were closed for cleaning. I have o idea what your cleaning staff were doing, but they were NOT cleaning that block! There were several blocked toilets, some were caked in faecal matter that was not removed for the whole weekend. One shower drain was blocked and the tray full of brown rank water. Again at no point over the weekend was this rectified. The sinks were dirty. The floor was constantly covered in mud, dead bugs, leaves and muck. The doors did not lock OR unlock properly, meaning you risked being trapped with every visit! They smelt, the seats were not properly attached, they were very dirty and did I mention BLOCKED and COVERED in FAECES!!!! I tried to use the other toilets as much as possible, but sometimes little ones don't give you enough warning and so we were forced into using these poor excuse for toilets. I have never used so much hand sanitizer in one weekend.... On Sunday we went back to the hall as we were barked at to do the day previously by your less than pleasant receptionist, to find that again the tours were off limits and all the upstairs rooms were closed. Not the best impression, visit or weekend away. Grounds were lovely, what we managed to see of the hall was nice, staff were rude, lets not talk about the facilities...
  • Beautiful place for a day out. The Maze is great fun for all ages.
