In a modern world of voice-activated, auto-timed, ultra-light technology, sometimes it’s just nice to kick back and enjoy the simple things in life – beautiful countryside, lots of space, historic location, a friendly welcome, and plethora of good places to eat and drink. If we've just described your ideal destination, then this unspoilt spot just outside Warwick is the campsite for you.
Mousley House Farm Campsite is a spacious four acre site set in 62 acres of gorgeous Warwickshire farmland. The camping area sits in a beautiful fenced meadow where the neighbouring nosey horses peer from the paddock as you assemble your tent. With a limited number of pitches available, there is always ample space guaranteed and, in the middle of the site, plenty of room for the kids to kick a ball or throw around a frisbee.
A four-star toilet block to accompany the small family shower unit, plus a new washing-up area means you get creature comforts to accompany the gorgeous views. There's also a chemical disposal point for those in motor homes and electrical hook-ups are also available.
Those who like their camping with a healthy dose of glamour can stay in one the luxurious bell tents or charming retro caravans. The bell tents are surprisingly big (sleeping up to five), with new wooden double beds in each electric hook up along with a table, kitchen pack BBQ and seating area. The cool retro caravans are the epitome of camping chic – individually decorated and perfect for that romantic retreat, sleeping two in a cosy double bed. There's a family retro caravan sleeping four on the way for 2015 so watch this space.
If you’re not meeting the resident rabbits, guinea pigs and rare breed chickens, then a chat with the ever-friendly owner, Simon, is likely to set you up for the day. A wealth of local knowledge, he’s quick to point you down the footpaths you're after.
The first port of call is often nearby Warwick, 15 minutes away. The pocket size settlement is famous for its medieval castle, towering over the River Avon. Today, it's formidable stone walls house fantastic exhibitions and regular historic re-enactments. Further downstream, the town of Stratford-upon-Avon straddles the same picturesque river banks, a place renowned world wide for its literary lineage. At its heart an unassuming market town, the compact centre now plays host to thousands of tourists each year, bustling past the former home of William Shakespeare and visiting the various museums dedicated to his life. The town is certainly worth a visit but when the crowds become a little overwhelming you can spill down to the riverside and bask in the satisfaction of your own wise choice: pitching your tent in the quiet, easy-going rural retreat just 20 minutes down the road.
