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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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.
