- 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…

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.

From the M40 junction 15, take the A439 Stow Road on the Barford bypass until you reach the right turn to Charlecote. Go through the village over the humpback bridge to the crossroads. Head straight over the crossroads taking the first right-hand turn signposted Hunsctote. This is a single-track lane with the Lowe Farm turn a few hundred metres down on the right (first right and after third telegraph pole!). The drive is shared with Hunscote House Farm and Stud. Signs on the telegraph poles!
Warwick Parkway station is 9 miles away.
Stratford-upon-Avon station is 6 miles away.
There is a bus service to from Stratford to Wellesbourne village near to the campsite.
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.
