General

  • Well-equipped tipis in a Warwickshire wildlife haven
  • Camp in wildflower meadows with firepits outside each pitch
  • Four miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and close to the Cotswolds

Tipi or not tipi? Whichever pitch you pick at Twitey’s Tipis and Campsite near Shakespeareland in Warwickshire, we’re of a reckoning that you’ll want to stay forever and a day.

You’ll get a welcome worthy of Liz I; the site is teeming with local critters including deer, rabbits, buzzards and foxes scooting nearby/soaring overhead, and campfires are allowed outside both the tent pitches and the tipis. And you get to tip your kit – and possibly the kids – into a wheelbarrow to move all to your pitch, to which we say ‘genius’.

Twitey’s is a new site and has 14 acres of wilderness to bed down in: the wheelbarrow ingenuity is to keep the campsite and its wildflower meadows as near to wild camping as possible. Tent pitches are privately set in the meadows where only the grass on the pitches is cut, to which we say ‘hiding in long grass' and 'hurrah’. Firepits are outside each pitch and you can buy all the necessary firestarting kit on site.

Or book a Twitey tipi: they’re all made locally and come equipped with most of the equipment you need for Stratford-upon-Avon glamping: carpets, rugs and even candles are all laid on, and a firepit, trivet and stove are outside each tipi too.

To stock up on supplies and quench thirst, there are shops and pubs about a mile from Twitey’s and a café nearby – as good luck would have it…

Very nice campsite, friendly and helpful staff 04/07/2016

    Just back from a weekend staying on this site. I was so impressed with the experience I felt the need to leave a review. The site had a very friendly relaxed feel. The staff were great, very welcoming and helpful.

    We booked a standard size pitch, which easily accommodated our large tent with loads of space left over. The fact that each pitch is separated from your neighbours by uncut long grass is great. It seems the owners want to put the experience of guests before profits as the capacity is quite small given the size of the site. Definitely not like a lot of sites that pack in as many people as possible.

    Keeping cars in the yard adds to the pleasantness of the field and gives a nice environment to allow young children to play. Wheelbarrows are provided to transport your camping gear between the car and pitch.

    Facilities are basic but were found to be clean. There is a small site shop, selling some basics and firewood. If no staff are around there is an honesty box. Again, this added to the relaxed friendly vibe of the site. I hope no one abuses this.

    We payed £60 for two nights for four adults and one child. Given the size of the pitch, location and facilities, I think this represents excellent value.

    I will also add that we had an excellent meal at The Fox pub, in nearby Loxely. This was recommended by one of the campsite staff. Some of the best "pub food" I've had in a while and only a couple of minutes drive from the site.

    Disliked: 

    I think that the toilet and shower facilities could be improved. I can appreciate that the site is "back to basics", but I would prefer hot water in the toilet blocks and maybe a few more showers to avoid queuing. However, I should add that both toilets and showers were clean whenever I used them.

Local attractions

Twitey’s Tipis and Campsite is four miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and close to the Cotswolds: once you’ve had your Shakespeare fix, the Cotswolds has walks, wildlife spotting and England’s biggest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to potter around, or stick around Stratford for Europe’s biggest butterfly collection at Butterfly World and to have a flutter on the gee-gees at Stratford Racecourse.

This is top terrain for historyheads: as well as the bardly attractions, there are National Trust houses all around, including Charlecote Park a mere mile from Twitey’s, and the Tudor Packwood House at Lapworth with gardens, park and topiary.

Wellesbourne has the nineteenth century Chedham’s Yard, an award-winning blacksmith’s and wheelwright’s workshop (book if you want to visit), and an underground World War II museum at Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield.

For vintage vehicle fans, race along to the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon which has a large collection of vintage and veteran cars and motorbikes.

There are cracking castles to see too: Warwick Castle has tons of events and activities throughout the year to pique the interest of even the most Nintendo-clutching child, and Kenilworth Castle, built by pining Robert Dudley for his love Liz I, has Elizabethan costume days, kids’ audio tours and a recreated Elizabethan garden.

Ragley Hall at Alcester has all sorts for all sizes and should be on any day trip list with its seventeenth century hall, acres of Capability Brown gardens and park with adventure wood, 3D maze and woodland walks

If Stratford Racecourse whets your betting whistle, there’s another racecourse at Warwick, one of the oldest in the country and with regular meets throughout the year.

Once you’re cleaned out, take the clan to nearby Hill Close Gardens, a collection of 18 restored Victorian gardens and Grade II summerhouses, and with kids’ events and workshops year round.

Itching for activity? Take a boat or a ghosthunting trip along the River Avon, cruise along the canals of nearby Birmingham (with shopping afterwards) or hike (part of) the 102 miles of the Cotswold Way from Chipping Camden to Bath; we hear Bath is pretty good for historyheads too.
