An eco-friendly hostel offers purpose-built en suite accommodation next door to the Conkers visitor centre, ideal for those looking to escape from it all with activities in mind.

Close to the Snibston Discovery Park, Twycross Zoo, the Museum of Brewing at Burton offer more relaxing activities. If you’re looking for something a little more enegetic, then why not try archery and laser clay shooting at Rosliston Forestry Centre or feel the power behind a number of birds of prey. You could even try Llama trekking! The building has been designed to reduce the effect of your stay on the environment, making it a great option for eco holidays.
