A family-friendly site with secluded, individual pitches hidden among the long grass and campfires permitted

Cross 14 acres of tall, wild, grass meadows and an array of carefully mown circular pitches, with friendly owners who hold a relaxed approach to camping and you’ve got yourself one special place to pitch. Throw in some world class Shakespearean sights, neighbouring medieval castles and countryside vistas that inspired some of the worlds greatest literature, then you’ve stumbled upon Twitey’s Tipis & Camping Meadows; ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ of a campsite.

“Peace and tranquillity is the order of the day,” says the site’s owner Michael Twite, who’s created a truly loveable, family campsite. All who stay here appreciate the lack of overcrowding and the absence of cars in the meadows. The mown pitches come well spaced out and hidden in one of the two wild flower meadows, providing a sense of remoteness and seclusion. Upon arrival, you’ll be presented with a wheelbarrow to help move your kit – especially fun for children who get a ride from mum or dad.

As the name suggests tipis (as well as a yurt and shepherd’s hut) can also be rented. The sites small ‘hamlet’ of abodes (five in total) have been thoughtfully positioned to overlook the meadow, and come furnished with lanterns, kitchen utensils and logs for a sunset campfire.

Perhaps Warwickshire may have been just another pleasant English county were it not for the birth of one rather gifted playwright. William Shakespeare was born, and died in Stratford-upon-Avon (four miles away), and the sights linked to the great man’s life have become a magnet for tourists. To sample some of Warwickshire’s glorious countryside, follow ‘Shakespeare’s Way’ which replicates the 146-mile route the young writer took on his travels to and from London. The scenery is sure to inspire; the earliest section of the walk passes rolling hills, the weaving River Stour and honey-coloured Cotswold cottages.

Pooped parents looking for offsite activities to tire out their energy sapping youngsters have plenty of choice in Warwickshire, not least at Warwick Castle, which runs a prgramme of activities during school holidays. However, back at camp, care-free kids usually wear themselves out finding their own fun, playing hide and seek in the long grass and chasing butterflies; ensuring a sound snooze for the whole family wherever you go. Busy days, peaceful nights. Life’s good at Twitey's...
