Campsite good for small children on bikes

My kids are aged 5 and 6 and are learning to ride their bikes. I need a campsite where I can pitch up and let them roam around practicing.

I was thinking Holmsley might be good because iirc it's all flat and has lots of concrete paths.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

How about a lumber Park?

Holmsley is exactly where my DD learned to ride her bike - there's a very very long strip of tarmac just outside the campsite which is a perfect stretch for practice.

Too many twists and turns on the paths oflocal park ... and didn't want to run over the little kids playing there wink

Clumber park is perfect! Miles of gentle trails. Big field to practice on, with a very, very gentle slope.
Lovely place.

Thanks for the replies.

We do take them to the local park as well. I promise I won't let them ride into anyone's tent. They have no confidence at all at the moment so they're barely riding anyway. And this is with stabilisers.

Clumber Park looks fantastic - I will definitely think about going. It's about 4 hours away from us but I think it would be worth the drive.

Holmsley's quite close so we'll probably go there first.
