The Owner Says
About Fire and Stars Woodland Camping
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).
