A city such as Coventry does not immediately spring to the minds of most when they are considering a holiday. However, the midlands city is a great example of a place which allows you to experience some great urban cultural attractions along with some splendid scenery in the form of the surrounding Warwickshire countryside. Combining a city break with a country retreat allows you to enjoy theatre, art galleries and great architecture and quickly escape to the country for its rejuvenating qualities.

Although it is great to be in amongst the great outdoors, the annoying thing about camping is that it can be a little uncomfortable.
