    Can anyone recommend a good site, preferably with hardstanding and EHU for two novice motorhomers within an hour and a half drive of Warwick? We like walking and fairly quiet sites. We were all set to go to the Forest of Dean but the site we had booked is closed because of the snow.

    Thanks

    You could try the camping and caravaning club site at Kingsbury water park, open all year, with plenty of walks nearby.

    My geography is rubbish -not sure how close Slimbridge is to you but the campsite there is open with hardstandings and next to the wildfowl & wetlands centre and canal. Plenty of walks and pub next door :thumb:

    Thanks for all the suggestions. We ended up at Lairhillock Park near Draycote Water and had a great time. The site warden was very friendly and helpful and there is a lovely walk / cycle route to Draycote Water.
