Stratford upon Avon
Stratford upon Avon is a lovely town so it's a real shame neither of its two campsites are particularly nice. Last year we stayed at Riverside caravan park with its endless regulations and long lists of what is and isn't acceptable. One of the more bizarre rules is that you cannot put up a windbreak, but there any many more things you might expect on a campsite that aren't allowed. The final straw was when the on-site bar told us they didn't serve real ale.
Anyway, if I had to recommend one site over the other I'd recommend Dodwell Park simply for their more relaxed attitude. You're unlikely to get told off for doing something you'd normally expect to be able to do on a campsite.
The riverside walk is lovely and as it nears the town of Stratford upon Avon it passes by the back of some very grand properties. We enjoyed following the right of way across their back gardens getting a glimpse of how the other half lives!
We looked around the market and popped into a few shops before taking the shorter route home via the road.
We played Cards Against Humanity on the Saturday evening, trying our hardest to keep the noise down not least because of our fits of laughter, but because we really didn't want others overhearing as we read what was written on the cards. It's probably not a game best suited for camping!
Here's a short video of our weekend featuring much of the riverside walk into Stratford (or watch it on YouTube)
