  • Peaceful family-run park two miles from Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Shop, off-licence, free hot showers and spotless facilities
  • Regular bus service from right outside the site
Settle yourselves down here, Shakespeare fans: Dodwell Park is just two miles from Shakespeare’s birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s cottage and all the bardly attractions of Stratford-upon-Avon. There’s peace, there’s quiet, there’s a countryside setting – and if all that still isn’t enough for a final attempt to get the kids (and dog) reading sonnets, you can culture-ise them by taking them along to nearby Warwick Castle for all sorts of horrible history. Sorted. Dodwell Park is a small family-run site where the amenities are kept to spotless standards, with free hot showers, dishwashing facilities and hairdryers to keep the barnet looking tiptop. A shop and off-licence is on site, and armfuls of leaflets are at the information stand with info on Stratford-upon-Avon and other local tourist attractions. Nearby are Cotswold villages with Shakespearely thatched inns, walks and cruises along the River Avon and the hills of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Boating, fishing and old buildings are at Luddington village about three miles from Dodwell Park. Leaving the car behind to avoid hiking up car parking costs in Stratford? A regular bus service stops right outside the site.

Powered gravel caravan site

Liked: Location was great for getting to Stratford Upon Avon with a regular bus service. Wardens were very friendly and helpful. But were not in control of the owner changing peoples bookings.

Disliked: Paid for a gravel pitch only to find we had been moved to a very sloping grass pitch without our knowledge - to make way for larger motorhomes. Incredibly disappointing to be treated in this way. There is a considerable road noise. The toilet block was dated, showers small and dingy. Sad to say we won’t be returning.

Powered gravel caravan site

Liked: Open site with very helpful warden. Good dog walks in the area. Also, an antique emporium next door.

Disliked: We couldn't park next to the caravan because the grass was too wet. The parking area was close to our caravan but when it was full and we came back in the evening we had to park the other end of the site, although there was space by the entrance. The site was part of a mobile home site and notices everyone stated there was no admission to these roads. It seemed unnecessarily unfriendly. There was no wi-fi.

Powered gravel caravan site

Liked: Great location with a bus stop right outside that takes you into Stratford centre. Friendly staff, small and cosy site with clean facilities. Our little boy didn’t want to come home!

Disliked: It had been raining before our arrival and the grass pitches were boggy so we were asked to stay on a gravel road between pitches. It was a bit fiddly trying to reach the electric points, but didn’t affect our stay too much.

Liked: Nice quiet small well maintained site. Toilets and showers clean and warm. Staff very friendly and welcoming. This site actually had wifi/internet access. The only one ive been to that does, despite what they tell you on their websites. Makes a big difference.

Disliked: Pitches too narrow for vehicle to be parked next to caravan, limited parking elsewhere. Limited dog walking from site.

Powered gravel caravan site

Liked: Greeted with a friendly welcome on to the site. The toilet block was clean and the site was quiet even though it was full for the bank holiday weekend

Disliked: The drainage wasn’t good and the hard standing area is small so we couldn’t use our awning even though we paid extra for it.

Local attractions

To Stratford-upon-Avon first: see what the big deal is by catching a Royal Shakespeare Company play before a trip around town to the Shakespeare attractions; buy a Shakespeare Five House Pass to see Hall's Croft, Mary Arden's Farm, Nash's House and New Place and Shakespeare's Grave alongside Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. Many companies offer cruises along the Avon, but to save pennies take a trip on the old chain ferry for 20p, or stay on land and take the mile and a quarter route along the Avon for views of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Shakespeare’s burial place Holy Trinity Church and the Memorial Theatre Gardens. Scores of other walks can be had in the Cotswolds, the biggest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, with miles’ worth of footpath and bridleways broken up by small villages and market towns. The Cotswold Way runs 102 miles south from Chipping Campden to Bath and passes many historical houses and churches. After Warwick Castle, families can have a day out at the Ragley Hall Estate to get lost in the 3D maze, or go to Kenilworth Castle with its kids' audio trail covering the history of the castle and the lovelorn Robert Dudley who built it in the 16th century to impress Queen Elizabeth I. Kids will probably also like the gizmos at Stratford’s MAD (Mechanical Art and Design) Museum, Hatton Farm Village at Warwick or driving you nuts around the world’s biggest collection of historic British cars at the Heritage Motor Centre, which has the Land Rover Experience, a nature path and a playground.
