About Fire and Stars Woodland Camping

Suitable For

Tents, hammocks, well-behaved dogs and woodland campers – yes. Caravans, campervans and noisy folk – no.


Walkers might enjoy parts of the 75-mile-long National Forest Way, which runs between the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire to Beacon Hill Country Park in Leicestershire, but if you’re in need of a companion you can find a furry friend at the Alpaca Farm (07870 380013) half a mile from the campsite, where alpaca trekking is possible (though not 75-miles-worth of it). Animal lovers will also enjoy a trip to Twycross Zoo (five miles). The Battlefield Line is the last remaining part of the former Ashby and Nuneaton Joint Railway which was opened in 1873. Shackerstone Station (01827 880754; three miles) is at the northern end of the line, and is the headquarters of the railway with a good museum. It’s five miles to English Heritage-owned Ashby De La Zouch Castle (01530 413343; a tall tower to climb) and around the same to the 17th-century house and garden at Donington Le Heath.

Food & Drink

It’s a matter of yards to The Old Crown Inn (01530 270223), a 17th-century coaching inn with a restaurant, garden and play area. They have a petanque court outside and a skittles alley within, plus decent ales on tap (including Sharp's Doom Bar and Timothy Taylor Landlord). For something else, try The Belper Arms (01530 886748; just under a mile), which also has outdoor seating and good food. There are a few small grocery shops nearby, the largest of them being the Co-Op in Measham (two-and-a-half miles).

What a fantastic campsite

What a fantastic campsite to spend a few days with family or friends, we loved setting up camp in a clearing in the trees and sitting round the fire catching up and roasting marshmallows. Its a very relaxed campsite, easy to book, with a friendly and helpful owner, lots of space for the children to roam free and play ball and walk to the tractor tyres whilst giving the adults a well earned rest. Ok so there are only portaloos and you have to bring your own water and trolly your stuff from the carpark but then once you are sorted you don't need to go anywhere and you get to experience pure bliss getting away from it all with owls hooting in the night, the smell of wood smoke and the rustle of leaves on the trees....

Lovely family friendly site

Warm welcome from Andy the host. Excellent layout. Good memories of fire and smoke, leaves and branches, quiet and birdsong, children laughing and learning, peace and simplicity. Professionally run, this is a real haven for someone to take a deep breath of fresh air and recharge. Camping in a field surrounded by the noises of strangers isn’t my idea of relaxation. I relaxed at Fire and Stars because it was nothing like that. Will bring my family back again.

Wholesome woodland camp and stargazing

We spent a night here camping in the moss covered birch woodland. The pitches are spacious and the staff are friendly and helpful. This feels like a true wild camping experience without the uncertainty of having to find a comfy spot. The ground is flat and soft, the woodland is accessible and, although there were other groups camping on the land a sense of privacy and even isolation is maintained which means the experience feels very much your own. We were woken in the morning by the cacophony of the dawn chorus and made some brekky on the campfire. We will definitely return here for more camping adventures.

A hidden gem in the Shire.

A beautiful and well-considered campsite in the heart of Leicestershire. The well-spaced pitches make it feel like you have the place to yourself, and the friendly and helpful staff are on-hand without being in the way. Lovely dawn chorus from the birds, too!
