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.
Open from 01/03/2019 to 01/01/2020

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.
