A sociable, bohemian, camping and glamping site with brand new facilities and a comfortable clubhouse space
“A boho glamping ground.” That’s how the Such family describe their four-acre paddock on the Leicestershire-Warwickshire border. In fact it’s far more than that. 15 spacious, grass tent pitches, each bordered by a string of atmospheric Edison bulbs, mean that campers are welcome here too. And there are hard-standings and electric points for quirky campervans. And as for 'bohemian'? Well, it certainly fits the bill. Think dream catchers for sale, peacocks strutting their stuff next door and Moroccan rugs cast across the floor of a pink-and-purple-painted clubhouse. Above all else, though, Ettie’s Field is cool. Pure and simple.
At the end of a 200-metre driveway, Ettie’s Field opened in 2018 and occupies a long, hedge-lined meadow, fronted by a newly built clubhouse. This alone is a genius idea. Open until half ten each night, the clubhouse creates a sociable, chilled out focal point, with a paved terrace and huge, floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide right back to reveal the hammock chairs and sofas inside. Alongside it, four fancy log pods each contain a private shower room with a shower, basin, toilet and changing space, providing the user with utter privacy. Beyond, meanwhile, the green space of the campsite extends.
Closest to the facilities are the two shiny Airstream trailers available for glampers to rent. Inside they have everything a couple could need – think modern, compact kitchen, en-suite bathroom, double bed and television. Next in the paddock, a handful of hardstandings welcome campervans and caravans too (quirky designs and vintage vans only; naturally). Finally, at the far end of the meadow, are the grass camping pitches themselves, which also have their own composting toilet nearby if you can’t be bothered with the 100-metre stroll to the main loos. Bell tents, tipis, canvas castles and home-made tents are all thoroughly encouraged. The quirkier the better here.
While the clubhouse, the campfires and the company of alpacas and donkeys over the fence make for reasons to stay at the campsite, there’s plenty to do nearby. Don’t be fooled by the quiet and the countryside views – it’s only a mile to the A444, which acts as an artery to the outside world. There’s a good pub (The Cock Inn) just beyond the junction and a handful of top attractions within a 10-minute drive. Visit the monkeys at Twycross Zoo, build your own raft at Bosworth Water Park or take a guided tour of the 15th-century battleground that saw the end of the Wars of the Roses and the start of Britain’s Tudor era.

What an amazing couple of nights we had in this beautiful campsite! The pitches are large and the amenities clean, warm and finished to an amazing standard. The finishes are a testament to everyone who’s obviously worked so hard to make Etties Field so special. Lovely little extras, like a chimenea on each pitch and all the lights separating the pitches, make the stay more memorable. Our kids adored the animals, especially Brian and Honey 😊 We have already recommended this site to all our friends and family and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone else. Thank you for being so welcoming we look forward to returning!

What a wonderful relaxing break we had at Etties Field. Owners were fabulous and told us all about the exciting and wonderful new things happening for 2022. The facilities were put of this world. The pitches were huge. The animals were delightful to meet. I loved the story behind Etties and I loved the fact for every booking a tree is planted. The whole experience of staying here was amazing and can't wait to visit again. If you book you certainly won't be disappointed.

Grass Pitch EHU - for small tourers & tents.
So as ex campers who have recently upgraded to the world of Glamping, we could not have picked a better site. The facilities are excellent, the toilets and showers are first class and very well kept. The Pitches are large and well kept and each pitch gets their own Chimnea, and there is subtle solar powered lighting that adds a lovely touch. Hosts were very welcoming and the setting is beautiful. There is a great pub 20 minutes from the campsite and the fellow guests were very friendly. As newbies to the scene of glamping we were made to feel very welcome. Will definitely be returning. :-)

Grass Pitch EHU - for small tourers & tents.
Absolutely loved our stay at Etties fields. Easy contactless check in, felt very safe with how this was done. The site is beautiful, so relaxing. The toilets are the best I have ever seen at a site. Such a quirky site, loved the little huts to sit in scattered around the site, the clubhouse was so cool. We used the chimnea on the pitch, perfect setting. Staff very friendly. Loved walking around looking at the animals too. Will be a regular visitor. Thank you for a great stay.

Ettie's Field is a Boho Camping Ground in the Heart of England. We have 8 hardstanding pitches with electric and water tap, 8 grass pitches with electric and water tap & 3 grass pitches, no electric but water close by and 6 circle pitches with electric & water these are great for group bookings and custom rigs, these are situated at the top of the field and are the closest to the amenities. We have individual shower rooms with toilet and wash basins and a male and female loo at the bottom of the field. Elsan and dish washing is at the top of the field near the shower rooms.
Though it feels quiet and remote, Ettie's Field's proximity to the A444 and A5 means you have immediate access to a whole host of the Midlands' top attractions. It takes less than 10 minutes to drive to Twycross Zoo (0844 474 1777), Market Bosworth (good farmers' market on the fourth Sunday of every month) and the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre (01455 290429). The latter commemorates the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, the last battle of the War of the Roses, in which Richard III was killed and Henry Tudor became king to start the Tudor dynasty. Interactive displays and a modern make-over give the place real family appeal. For watersports fans, rent sailing boats and canoes at Bosworth Water Park (01455 291876; 10 minutes' drive) or stay on dry land and go llama trekking at Lucky Tails Alpaca Farm (01827 820810) 15 minutes away. It's also a 20-minute drive to Drayton Manor Theme Park (01827 287979).
Food and drink
It takes all of about 15 minutes to walk down the lane to the somewhat dated Gate Inn (01827 715701) Legend has it that famous, 18th-century highwayman Dick Turpin used to hide in the cellar with his horse at Turpins Bar and Grill (01827 880111), a short drive away in Twycross that has taken his name. If you're looking for something special, San Giovanni (01827 881000) in Sheepy Magna is a plush and modern restaurant with designer touches and an excellent, raised terrace open in summer overlooking Sheepy Lake.
