Camping in the Midlands
« on: January 27, 2019, 07:30:41 pm »
I am thinking about a April or may camping weekend at the Wolvey camping and caravaning park
at Wolvey near hinckley which has a railway station. .prices for cycle campers is. .£8 and they take car campers and caravans. They allow fires and the site opens from March which is when I will speak to them. If anyone is interested let me know. The only dates that I have to avoid is the  weekend of theclosest to the 13th of may as I am hoping to take apollo to the O2 arena to watch the wrestling for his 30th birthday  ☺

Sounds like a good idea to me.  :thumbsup: Weather dependent of course, no way of judging that this far in advance.

One thing doesn't make sense though – surely Apollo can't be 30?!!!! :o

We stayed at that site a couple of years ago when the ALC had their AGM in the village there.
Not a bad site and we cycled up from Coventry station, which is only 9 mile away.
Depending on weekend and work shifts we'll join you (new job is 5 on 3 off).

I have stayed there several times in the last decade.  Site is fine, road noise from the distant motorway is surprisingly apparent at night.  Of the village pubs, the Blue Pig is by far the better.  There is no other decent pub anywhere within about 8 miles, I have tried.
