  • Small site with fishing lake next to an 18th-century coaching inn
  • Within a half-hour drive of Drayton Manor, Snowdome and Twycross Zoo
  • A 40-minute drive from Birmingham's Cadbury World and Science Museum
The first sight for many folk arriving at New Forest View is a bear. Don’t bolt… he’s called Bosworth (after the famed 15th-century battlefield nearby)… and he doesn’t move. Which is a bit of a shame for him, for there's a hefty spread of activities and attractions in the surrounding heart of England counties of Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and beyond, from forest walks and wildlife encounters to winter sports, fishing and waterskiing. Get cracking right on site, as this small Leicestershire park for touring vehicles has its own fishing pond, bookable in advance. Next door, the coaching inn has been welcoming thirsty and hungry travellers for four centuries, with real ales, bar snacks and restaurant meals, regular Chinese and Indian carvery nights and a beer garden with a kids’ play area (which might not have been there four centuries ago…). For true fishing aficionados, there are further carp to be caught a five-minute drive away at Tucker’s Holt, and at Kingsbury Waterpark (half an hour). The latter makes a decent destination for non-anglers as well, with walks, cycle trails and birdwatching, plus waterskiing and jetskiing on the lakes. Dogs are welcome on this site.

Local attractions

To learn more about Bosworth and its battle, you could steam over there in suitably historic style, taking a vintage train ride from Shackerstone (10 minutes’ drive), or if you prefer 21st-century transport, the Battlefield Heritage Centre is 20 minutes away. For the thrills of the battlefield without the other bits, Drayton Manor Theme Park has all manner of white-knuckle adventure rides, or you could hit the icy slopes of the year-round indoor Tamworth Snowdrome (both half an hour away). Warm up afterwards with a trip round the spicy eateries of Birmingham’s Balti Triangle, topped off by sticky sweet chocolate factory tours at Cadbury World and experimental missions at the city’s Thinktank Science Museum (40 minutes). How wild do you like your wildlife? Twyford Zoo (10 minutes) has tarantulas and snow leopards; there’s a riot of feathered colours flapping about at Tropical Birdland (20 minutes), and wooded walks with those cute South American camelids at National Forest Llama Treks are within half an hour. It’s a 15-minute trip to see the early stages of the New National Forest, and there’s bike hire at the Youth Hostel if you want to see the saplings from the saddle. More mature woodland, plus walks, horse riding and birdwatching can be sampled at Sence Valley Forest Park, 10 minutes’ drive away, or you can beetle over to Bradgate Park (half an hour) on Leicester’s outskirts, for gentle hills and Tudor history, deer herds and skylarks.
