A sociable, bohemian, camping and glamping site with brand new facilities and a comfortable clubhouse space

“A boho glamping ground.” That’s how the Such family describe their four-acre paddock on the Leicestershire-Warwickshire border. In fact it’s far more than that. 15 spacious, grass tent pitches, each bordered by a string of atmospheric Edison bulbs, mean that campers are welcome here too. And there are hard-standings and electric points for quirky campervans. And as for 'bohemian'? Well, it certainly fits the bill. Think dream catchers for sale, peacocks strutting their stuff next door and Moroccan rugs cast across the floor of a pink-and-purple-painted clubhouse. Above all else, though, Ettie’s Field is cool. Pure and simple.

At the end of a 200-metre driveway, Ettie’s Field opened in 2018 and occupies a long, hedge-lined meadow, fronted by a newly built clubhouse. This alone is a genius idea. Open until half ten each night, the clubhouse creates a sociable, chilled out focal point, with a paved terrace and huge, floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide right back to reveal the hammock chairs and sofas inside. Alongside it, four fancy log pods each contain a private shower room with a shower, basin, toilet and changing space, providing the user with utter privacy. Beyond, meanwhile, the green space of the campsite extends.

Closest to the facilities are the two shiny Airstream trailers available for glampers to rent. Inside they have everything a couple could need – think modern, compact kitchen, en-suite bathroom, double bed and television. Next in the paddock, a handful of hardstandings welcome campervans and caravans too (quirky designs and vintage vans only; naturally). Finally, at the far end of the meadow, are the grass camping pitches themselves, which also have their own composting toilet nearby if you can’t be bothered with the 100-metre stroll to the main loos. Bell tents, tipis, canvas castles and home-made tents are all thoroughly encouraged. The quirkier the better here.

While the clubhouse, the campfires and the company of alpacas and donkeys over the fence make for reasons to stay at the campsite, there’s plenty to do nearby. Don’t be fooled by the quiet and the countryside views – it’s only a mile to the A444, which acts as an artery to the outside world. There’s a good pub (The Cock Inn) just beyond the junction and a handful of top attractions within a 10-minute drive. Visit the monkeys at Twycross Zoo, build your own raft at Bosworth Water Park or take a guided tour of the 15th-century battleground that saw the end of the Wars of the Roses and the start of Britain’s Tudor era.

Ettie's Field love children to visit but we have not designed Ettie's with children in mind so if you are looking for a playground, being able to kick a ball, throw frisbees, set up cricket or tennis or fly a kite on your pitch then Ettie's Field is not suitable.

Nearby

Though it feels quiet and remote, Ettie's Field's proximity to the A444 and A5 means you have immediate access to a whole host of the Midlands' top attractions. It takes less than 10 minutes to drive to Twycross Zoo (0844 474 1777), Market Bosworth (good farmers' market on the fourth Sunday of every month) and the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre (01455 290429). The latter commemorates the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, the last battle of the War of the Roses, in which Richard III was killed and Henry Tudor became king to start the Tudor dynasty. Interactive displays and a modern make-over give the place real family appeal. For watersports fans, rent sailing boats and canoes at Bosworth Water Park (01455 291876; 10 minutes' drive) or stay on dry land and go llama trekking at Lucky Tails Alpaca Farm (01827 820810) 15 minutes away. It's also a 20-minute drive to Drayton Manor Theme Park (01827 287979).

Food & Drink

It takes all of about 15 minutes to walk down the lane to the somewhat dated Gate Inn (01827 715701)  Legend has it that famous, 18th-century highwayman Dick Turpin used to hide in the cellar  with his horse at Turpins Bar and Grill (01827 880111), a short drive away in Twycross that has taken his name. If you're looking for something special, San Giovanni (01827 881000) in Sheepy Magna is a plush and modern restaurant with designer touches and an excellent, raised terrace open in summer overlooking Sheepy Lake.

Opening Times

The campsite if open all year apart from late January and February. Grass tent pitches, however, are only open from April–October.

The Owner Says

As Airstreamers our aim was to create a Glamping Ground for people who are as passionate as us about Glamping.. We named our Airstream Ettie after my Grandma, when we bought Ettie we put her in the field and called it "Ettie's Field" so when we were thinking of a name and we went through a few!! It dawned on us that we had already named it!! Ettie's Field!!! Ettie's Field is NOT a caravan park or a campsite...Ettie's Field is a Glamping Ground..Ettie's Field is for everyone who owns an interesting Glamping rig or would like to Glamp in one of our Glamping rentals.

​WE LOVE..Airstream, VanLife, Bongo, Glawnings, Teardrop, t@b, Vdubs, Bikers, Classic Hymer, Eriba Touring, Bell or Lotus Tent, Tipis, Roof tents, converted ambulances. WE LOVE different!!! Ettie's Field is different!!!

​Ettie's Field is NOT suitable for normal tents, normal caravans or normal motorhomes...

We welcome children at Ettie's Field but we have not designed the site around children, we do not have a playground or allow any type of ball, frisbee games or kite flying on Ettie's Field, if those are a must maybe Ettie's Field isn't suitable.
