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.

    Would have loved extra toilets and showers but owner says they are coming soon. If you don’t like aeroplanes could be a problem as close to runway - we didn’t mind and we slept through it all

    Yew Tree Cottage campsite is a lovely place to stay and Eddie is a wonderful host, where nothing is too much trouble and you are made to feel like an old friend. My husband and I stayed here for a week whilst exhibiting at the NEC nearby and the commute was easy. There’s a really nice pub with good food a short walk from the campsite, and the nearby town of Coleshill has an abundance of shops, takeaways, petrol station and supermarket. We made some lovely friends at the site, and will be returning to stay here without a doubt. 100% recommended, thank you Eddie for a fantastic time with you at Yew Tree Cottage campsite.

    The location was excellent for our needs very peaceful and quiet.
    Booked 2 nights in order to visit the Coventry Motofest event which was brilliant.
    The owner Eddie is just like the site a little gem,He was helpful and informative and has a wicked sense of humour.
    The facilities are great, he has thought of everything thing he would like if he was using the site himself which is a rarity, little things like fresh fruit, bottle and can openers, razor blades and toiletries free for the use of the visitors.
    Will definitely return to explore the area and enjoy the tranquility of this site.

    Nothing to dislike will definitely be going back.

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.
