Why stay here ...

Bruce and Anne would like to welcome you to Valais Caravan Park. Based in Colebatch Shropshire 1.2 miles from Bishops Castle.

The caravan park has 5 pitches all of which have electric points, all have available fresh water point, along with chemical toilet disposal point. The site will allow you to experience true “back to nature”, being surrounded by beautiful Shropshire hills and countryside and an area of outstanding beauty.

There is good access to surrounding areas such as Bishops Castle, Clun, Church Stretton, Craven Arms Welshpool, Newtown and surrounding areas. In Bishops Castle there is a great choice of pubs and cafés with unusual shops all offering a welcome atmosphere and it’s still a busy market town holding cattle market once weekly with farmers and craft markets in town hall on first and third Saturday of the month.

Bishops Castle holds many activities throughout the year, and is great walking country with many circular walks and places of interest.

For those of you who enjoy good food and real ale there are two breweries in the town - The Six Bells and The Three Tuns. Altogether there are six pubs in the town with realise festival held in July.

Music and art also play a big part in the town’s heritage with art festivals, walking festivals, Michaelmas fair to name a few. There is a local swimming pool and SparC theatre which host films and screened theatre.

There is plenty for all ages both in the town and surrounding areas, with the caravan park being not just a base to explore but also to relax and unwind in this beautiful back to nature experience whilst sat at your caravan enjoying views.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us and welcome all comments, and information as you explore this beautiful, tranquil countryside.

Wonderful site

Valais Caravan Park
We spent two delightful nights at Valais. The site is as well maintained as other reviewers describe. The various animals - sheep, goats and horses - around the site are kept in small paddocks but are easily observed. They give the site character and interest. The pitches are generous in size and are closely mown. The owners are extremely friendly but never intrusive. Bishop’s Castle in nearby and an interesting place to wander around. A little further away is Clun, another attractive town. We also walked a little way along Offa’s Dyke, which is situated in lovely hilltop countryside giving wide views. Very glad we stayed.

Lovely, peaceful and well maintained.

Valais Caravan Park
We have stayed here several times. Bruce and Anne are great hosts. The site is immaculate and access is easy to the surrounding area. The homemade goats cheese and milk is brilliant.

A FANTASTIC site

Valais Caravan Park
We have stayed at many cl’s and this is one of, if not, the best we have ever stayed at in 6 years of caravanning. Can only repeat what others have said. Great hosts, very helpful and informative and amazing surroundings. It’s a lovely part of the world that we keep coming back to. The kids had a great time, especially with the nearby goats that they liked to entertain. I have no doubt that we will return here again in the future as we were instantly relaxed from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We stayed 7 nights but quickly turned that into 8. Bruce and Anne have a great set up. I shouldn’t really say how good it is because we may never get another chance to stay! A little bit of caution is needed when entering and particularly exiting as it is a little tight but nothing anyone should really worry about, just give yourself a wide swing. We are missing this place already and will return. Thanks 👍

Can't fault it...

Valais Caravan Park
Large, quiet grassy site with big pitches and lovely views, about a mile from Bishops Castle. Anne and Bruce are a great couple, nothing was too much trouble, and their duck eggs were a treat! We did four amazing walks from the site, from five miles to twelve. Lots of hills with spectacular views. Both Bishops Castle and Clun (which we walked to) have a lot to offer, with history and lovely old unspoiled pubs. There is also a small Co-op in town, plus fish 'n' chips, and Chinese take-away. Don't worry about the 6amp electric - it is definitely more than that, probably 16amp. We had no problems at all with it. Just one suggestion, perhaps a name change, as 'caravan park' conjures up images of a big crowded site - which is what CL users want to avoid. Will definitely be back!

Wonderful CL

Valais Caravan Park
What a great little CL. A warm welcome from Bruce & Anne when we arrived, giving us all the detail we needed on the sites & there local area. We stayed for 6 nights, walked or cycled everyday & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Bishop’s Castle has some lovely pubs & shops and the surrounding area is beautiful. We will definitely be back.
