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.

A perfect CL

Valais Caravan Park
We needed to be near Bishop’s Castle for a few days in September and found the perfect spot at Valais. Anne and Bruce are really good at communicating, from booking through to arrival. Do make sure you follow directions on club site though. Bruce welcomed us with an open gate and directed us to our huge pitch. All the pitches here are more than generous and have hook ups and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. We had a problem with our pump when we arrived and Bruce and Anne went out of their way to help us sort it. They are the perfect couple to run a CL. It’s a half hour walk into Bishop’s Castle along the beautiful Shropshire Way or a 5 minute drive. The whole area is peaceful and blissfully quiet and there are plenty of places to explore nearby. We loved our stay here and hope to return in the future.

An amazing CL in a beautiful part of Shropshire

Valais Caravan Park
We stayed for three nights in our campervan. We were met on arrival by Bruce who provided loads of information on the local area, including leaflets on places to eat and local walks. We met Anne later and she was just as welcoming. They were very helpful and lovely to talk to, but not intrusive. The site is extremely well kept with very spacious pitches, all on grass but well drained and level. Each pitch has electric hook up, with well maintained loo dump, bins and fresh water point. There are great views all around and, although about 250m from the A488, we didn't hear the traffic (which is light anyway). They have sheep and goats on the site and also keep chickens, ducks and quails. Eggs are for sale at the entrance and sometimes goat's cheese - we missed the cheese window so will have to return to try it! We enjoyed some lovely walks from the site, including into Bishop's Castle along part of the Shropshire Way. BC is a lovely little market town with loads of independent shops and six pubs (including two micro-breweries). There are plenty of places to visit and walk in the local area, but we liked the peace and quiet so much, we just walked from the site. I also enjoyed a lovely bike ride on quiet roads through some small villages; for those that like them there are plenty of steep hills to cycle up and down! Valais is exactly what we want from a CL; it's quiet, spacious, well-maintained and surrounded by beautiful countryside with plenty of places to visit. With lovely hosts and a relaxing atmosphere, it's definitely one we'll return to....for the goat's cheese!

Lovely peaceful site

Valais Caravan Park

We were greeted by Anne at the gate, given leaflets and maps of local walks and shown to our pitch. A beautiful peaceful site with lovely views all around. The eggs were delicious and the goats kept us entertained! A lovely stroll into Bishoo’s Castle, where we discovered quirky pubs and shops, and a longer hike to Clun revealed the beautiful Shropshire countryside. The facilities (loo disposal, electric hook up and water) are basic, which is just how we like them, and the surrounding area is stunning. We will definitely be back!

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.
