General

  • Peaceful and simple adults-only site 15 minutes' drive from the NEC
  • Within half an hour of Drayton Manor, Twycross Zoo and Birmingham
  • A 10-minute drive from Shustoke Reservoir fishing, sailing and walks

How about this for a classic city and country combo? Yew Tree Cottage Camping and Caravan Site is in the Warwickshire countryside 10 minutes’ drive from Shustoke Reservoir, a fab area for outdoor activities and nature spotting.

It’s also 15 minutes from the National Exhibition Centre and half an hour from the centre of buzzing Birmingham: you could be waterskiing before breakfast and dining in the Balti Triangle after dark…

With such a heady cocktail of metropolitan and outdoor entertainments going on, you need a peaceful, laidback base to come back to, and Yew Tree Cottage Camping and Caravan Site does the job. It’s an adults-only site, so that keeps the volume down for starters... Facilities are clean, well-kept and simple, with no bars, spas, clubhouses or other frills and fripperies getting in between your good self and the great open countryside.

Dogs are welcome on site if you fancy showing yours off at Crufts, the annual waggy-tailed bonanza hosted nearby at the National Exhibition Centre. The NEC is also, handily enough, home to the Motorhome and Caravan Show, and whether you’re into baking or bikes, science, Lego or Christmas crafts, something big's being exhibited there every week.

    Spotlessly clean site
    Well laid out pitches
    Amazing owner Eddie
    When we looked at booking and the reviews we thought this Eddie bloke must be writing them himself.
    But low and behold he is as good as the reviews said.
    Very helpful very friendly a class act.
    Even gave us some barbecue spare ribs
    Chicken and pork loins from his birthday bash.
    Absolutely nothing was too much trouble.
    Site is exceptional we all loved it as did everybody we spoke to that were stopping the bank holiday weekend.
    We will be returning as soon as we can.
    Nice country pub the plough inn about 10 mins walk away across fields so great for our dogs to have a run around as well.

    What a lovely little site, If you are looking for a peaceful getaway this is the one, the pitches are set in a well kept garden surrounded by fields and next to the cottage. There is an undercover outdoor space. The shower block contains 2 bathroom units which were immaculate. between the 2 was a foyer room with tourist info, bowl of fruit and sink for washing up and a heater to keep the cold at bay... There were even shower soaps in the bathrooms, the little extra touches really made me feel welcome. This site owner clearly cares about the visitors. My stay was very short but wished it had been longer, many thanks...

    Disliked: 

    just one little niggle the shower had a pre set temperature which was just above cold... this would be fine in summer but with the temperature just above freezing when I visited this was definitely rather chilly....

Local attractions

When you don’t fancy straying far from quarters, Shustoke Reservoir (10 minutes' drive) is a haven for birdlife and a hub for sailors and fisherfolk. Circular walks connect with the 100-mile long Heart of England Way, running between Cannock Chase in Staffordshire and the Cotswolds.

For a short-cut, it’s a 45-minute car trip to Cannock Chase, where there are deer-filled woodlands to walk, bike and Segway your way through, zipwires to zoom down and an assault course for dogs. Woof.

To add historical flavour to your adventures, make for medieval Maxstoke Castle (five minutes), moated and stacked with relics including the chair Henry VII was crowned on. For noisier nostalgia, it’s 15 minutes to the National Motorcycle Museum, or you could get all poetic perusing Shakespeare’s home at Stratford-upon-Avon (50 minutes).

Thrillseekers should report to Drayton Manor Theme Park for all kinds of white knuckle rides, or wend their way to Kingsbury Waterpark (both 15 minutes), for jet bikes, power boat racing and waterskiing.

You can hack, cycle or walk around the Kingsbury site, stopping off for fishing and birdwatching, but if you like your wildlife wilder, try the chimps and zebras at Twycross Zoo (25 minutes) or drive among the lions, cheetahs and rhinos at West Midlands Safari Park (an hour).

Beetle over to Birmingham (half an hour) for urban adventures, like tours of the science museum and Jewellery Quarter, chocolate-flavoured 4D experiences, factory tours (and actual chocolate) at Cadbury World, and bucketloads of Brum’s best dish, balti.
