Welcome to Podtastic@Nelson's
Nelson's Wharf is a small unspoilt family owned holiday site with just three high specification camping pods. This is perfect for a family where up to two adults, along with two youngsters aged under 16, can enjoy the luxury of a pod. If preferred, the children can camp outside the pod in your own tent, leaving the pod just for adults.
The 16 hectare, (40 acre), estate is in the heart of England and it makes an excellent holiday base to visit the attractions of Warwickshire and Central England. There are also some great local off-road walks for the family plus quiet cycle routes. The Grand Union Canal provides a particularly good walking and cycle route to Leamington Spa and Warwick with very little main road work needed.
Newly installed last year is the children's activity area suitable for children aged 7 to 13. (Children must be supervised by a responsible adult, (18+) on the site at all times and particularly when using the activity area). The pods are named Apple, Blackberry and Cherry. It may influence your selection to know that Apple is nearest to the play area.
If you just want to stay put then the land is a peaceful rural haven teaming with wildlife and flora. Many rare species of butterfly can be found on the land along with wild orchids at the right time of year. (Nelson's Wharf won a national award in 2018 for its work with butterfly conservation with essential help from Warwickshire Butterfly Conservation).
The family have been operating an accommodation facility in the main building at Nelson's Wharf since 2018 and its success in creating this haven has led to the decision to share it with more people by building just three high specification "glamping" pods. The pods are situated in a peaceful area at the eastern end of the estate and have views across open fields to the south and a lovely view of the Grand Union Canal a few metres away to the north. There is a certain pleasure to just sitting back and watching the boats go past slowly, (4 mph speed-limit). Don't forget to wave, it is customary on the waterways.
Please note: Nelson's Wharf and Podtastic is a NO SMOKING or VAPING site. Apologies, as much as we like pets ourselves, we don't allow pets, including dogs and cats in the pods.
