Want a worthy Warwickshire break, where all you can hear when you wake is the sound of birds warbling? Hither thee to Bosworth Caravan Park in Nuneaton, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and near the battle site of Bosworth Field where Richard III took – and lost – his last stand.
It’s a short saunter from here to the lovely Market Bosworth Country Park, with wildlife walks, arboretum and fishing at the Bow Pool, and ten minutes to the ancient town of Market Bosworth, winner of several Britain in Bloom competitions. Well, the Wars of the Roses did finish nearby…
The grass and hardstanding pitches at Bosworth Caravan Park are for touring caravans and motorhomes, set in an almost-level five acre field. Pitches come with electric hook-up and there are taps and chemical disposal on site. There are no worries either for those who don’t like olde worlde standards when camping, as the park is kept to spotless standards all over.
For modern munching, the restaurant of Bosworth Hall Hotel is around 800 metres away; there’s an indoor pool and a spa too for splashing and steaming. Other eclectic eating options in the area include takeaways in town, a trip for tasty treats to the thatched pub and restaurant the Cock Inn two miles from the park (where Dick Turpin used to hide in the chimney) and sitting by the stream and old mill wheel inside Millers Hotel, also in Sibson.
Nearby attractions and activities
The centre of Market Bosworth is a conservation area and has heaps of old buildings to see around its market place; Bosworth dates back to 1048 and has had a Royal Charter for its market since the seventeenth century. There’s still a weekly market on Wednesdays, with a farmers’ market held every month, and the town is also known for its galleries and antiquery geekery; The Clock Shop in The Square has antique barometers and long case clocks to covet.
Bosworth Water Trust is within wandering distance of the town centre, with a 20-acre lake for watersports and fishing and taster sessions/private lessons on offer for anyone wanting to get to grips with canoeing, sailing or windsurfing. Once you’ve damply tired yourself out, have a seat on the Battlefield Line: this nineteenth century railway is still steaming through the heart of England, with a stop at Bosworth en route from Shackerstone to Shenton.
Slightly further afield towards Tamworth, let the kid go loopy on the rides and eyeball the animals at Drayton Manor Theme Park, or slide down the slopes on skis or snowboards at the indoor snow slope SnowDome; they’ll also enjoy gibbering at the gibbons at Atherstone’s Twycross Zoo.
But you can’t go to Bosworth and not explore the demise of Richard 3 with a trip to the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and Country Park…Among the many highlights here are trying your skills as an archer, donning armour to find out how heavy it is (very) and hearing about the gruesome facts of medieval warfare. One the kids will like, then…You can reach Warwick Castle easily from here too, which should be a big hit with little historians with its re-enactments, dressing up and daily shows.

Lovely & peaceful. Very clean & tidy site. Friendly welcome
Levena B. (Mature couple, 1 review, 0 photos) Confirmed ?
Liked: Good location. Clean & tidy site. Nice pitch. Basic, but just what we wanted.
Disliked: The only thing that I would have disliked. Would be if we had been allocated pitch 9. Which was right near the waste disposal area. This wouldn't have been as pleasant as the pitch we were allocated. (pitch no. 1)

Quiet site in good location. Would visit again.
Paul R. (Mature couple, 1 review, 0 photos) Confirmed ?
Liked: Quiet location 15 min walk to local village which has three pubs; a couple of quality resturants; a late night Co-op and a fish and chip shop!! Used the site to visit NEC about 30 mins away. Lots of well signed local attractions for the historic Battle of Bosworth.
Disliked: Size of hardstanding. A mound of compacted gravel that fell away on three sides. Most others pitches were considerably larger enabling siting of an awning. At this price no toilet block, although to be fair the particulars make it clear that there isn't one
