Camping within hour Leamington/Warwick

Post by Rock Bus » Mon May 08, 2017 10:05 pm

Hi all
I'd really like to make sure I use the van more this year.

So want to find some decent camp sites in local area.

Basically so we can just go off late Friday when it looks like good weather.

Just looking for decent, clean site, room for kids and dog to run around and enjoy themselves.

Good pub in walking distance as well!

Any ideas?

We camped at Brook Meadow Sibbertoft at Easter:-

Nice site, good clean facilities, short walk into Sibbertoft where the Red Lion serves some great food, beer and wine:-

On the Friday we took a circular walk (6 miles or so) to Welford along the Jurassic Way:-

Note you can't take the track opposite the campsite (The Wrongs) but walk towards Sibbertoft and pick up the Jurassic Way there, we called in at the Wharf Inn, Welford for a couple of pints of refreshment half way:-

And on the Sunday we took a short drive (25 mins) to Foxton Locks and did another circular walk, again 6 odd miles including 4 pubs:-

Sunday Roast in the Bell Inn at Gumley was well worth the stroll:-

That's your weekend planned then!

Oh and there is a gliding club adjacent to the site so you can watch in amazement as these silent planes dance around the sky and if it is your bag there is a fishing lake on site.

And there's an SSVC family camping weekend organised by Gertjan on the 17th & 18th June at Banbury, that can only be 30 minutes from you?
