NEW FOR 2021... Welcome to Podtastic@Nelson's
Nelson's Wharf is a small unspoilt family owned holiday site with just three high specification camping pods plus room for family camping as an accompaniment the pod booking. This is perfect for the family where the adults can enjoy the luxury of a pod with youngsters enjoying safe, close-by, camping outside.
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 and particularly for our four-legged friends 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.
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 and its sister company Willow Wren Training won a national award in 2018 for its with Butterfly Conservation work).
The family have been operating an accommodation facility at Nelson's Wharf for their waterways training business, (Willow Wren Training), customers since 2018 but its success in creating this haven has led to the decision to share it with more people by building just three luxury "glamping" pods. The camping 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 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.
