The camping field

General

  • Peaceful family-run park two miles from Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Shop, off-licence, free hot showers and spotless facilities
  • Regular bus service from right outside the site

Settle yourselves down here, Shakespeare fans: Dodwell Park is just two miles from Shakespeare’s birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s cottage and all the bardly attractions of Stratford-upon-Avon.

There’s peace, there’s quiet, there’s a countryside setting – and if all that still isn’t enough for a final attempt to get the kids (and dog) reading sonnets, you can culture-ise them by taking them along to nearby Warwick Castle for all sorts of horrible history. Sorted.

Dodwell Park is a small family-run site where the amenities are kept to spotless standards, with free hot showers, dishwashing facilities and hairdryers to keep the barnet looking tiptop. A shop and off-licence is on site, and armfuls of leaflets are at the information stand with info on Stratford-upon-Avon and other local tourist attractions.

Nearby are Cotswold villages with Shakespearely thatched inns, walks and cruises along the River Avon and the hills of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Boating, fishing and old buildings are at Luddington village about three miles from Dodwell Park.

Leaving the car behind to avoid hiking up car parking costs in Stratford? A regular bus service stops right outside the site.

Very well maintained and clean site with friendly owners10/03/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomPeter R.Confirmed

  • Electric gravel pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely clean site with heated and spotless facilities which is rare on a campsite.

    It is convenient for a visit to Stratford upon Avon with a bus stop directly outside the park. However, the bus cost £3.50 each and there was four of us so on the return we took a taxi which came to £7.40. Moral of this story is get the taxi.

    Would definitely visit again as it is a really nice site and the owner was very friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Would be a five star but the hard standings are on quite a slope both top to bottom and sideways. Even on the top of the ramps we couldn't get the motorhome quite level.

    Lovely greeting and all smooth to check in. Great little site, very quiet at this time of year. Really clean toilet block and wash up area. Walked to the local indian, this is probably nicer in the summer along the busy road. Very friendly managers. On the bus route to Stratford so no need to take the van or car.

    Shower a bit harsh and wouldn't stay hot until really turned up high. Was a bit water logged on grass areas due to rain but couldn't be helped.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

To Stratford-upon-Avon first: see what the big deal is by catching a Royal Shakespeare Company play before a trip around town to the Shakespeare attractions; buy a Shakespeare Five House Pass to see Hall's Croft, Mary Arden's Farm, Nash's House and New Place and Shakespeare's Grave alongside Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage.

Many companies offer cruises along the Avon, but to really save pennies take a trip on the old chain ferry for 20p, or stay on land and take the mile and a quarter route along the Avon for views of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Shakespeare’s burial place Holy Trinity Church and the Memorial Theatre Gardens.

Scores of other walks can be had in the Cotswolds, the biggest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, with miles’ worth of footpath and bridleways broken up by small villages and market towns. The Cotswold Way runs 102 miles south from Chipping Campden to Bath and passes many historical houses and churches.

After Warwick Castle, families can have a day out at the Ragley Hall Estate to get lost in the 3D maze, or go to Kenilworth Castle with its kids' audio trail covering the history of the castle and the lovelorn Robert Dudley who built it in the 16th century to impress Liz One.

Kids will probably also like the gizmos at Stratford’s MAD (Mechanical Art and Design) Museum, Hatton Farm Village at Warwick or driving you nuts around the world’s biggest collection of historic British cars at the Heritage Motor Centre, with Land Rover Experience, nature path and children's playground.
