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 Warm Welcome

We were met at the gate by Bruce and Ann and were given all the information we needed about where to pitch and where the facilities were. The CDP and drinking water facilities were excellent and grey waste goes down a drain next to the drinking water supply. Great size pitches with plenty of room on the field so all units were very well spaced. Great views from our well-maintained pitch and the first bird we saw was a Red Kite. There is some noise from the road, mostly farm traffic, but it was not intrusive, and the site is very quiet at night. It was great to buy fresh eggs (hen, quail and duck) and also tasty but mild goat’s cheese. It was nice to wake aupnd see the sheep and goats with their young close by. The scenery in this part of Shropshire is fantastic and there are so many places to visit. You can walk straight from site or go out to explore. Places we went to were Mitchells Fold Stone Circle, Burys Ditch Hill Fort, Clun and circular walk from site through fields woods and quiet country lanes. Bruce and Ann gave us lots of information about the area and a potted history of the site. We will certainly go back again to explore this lovely area.

A GREAT STAY

I agree all the positive comments that have been made about this lovely site. The CAMC handbook states the EHUs are 6A. This is a typo. They are 16A. The route in from the south through Clun is OK for campervans and small motorhomes but not for large motorhomes or caravans. A pleasant short walk into Bishop's Castle where there are a range of facilities. A longer but equally good walk to Clun which also has a couple of cafes and shops.

Plenty of Walking from this site

We stayed here mid August at a mid point for our journey from Berwick to Plymouth. Very quiet and flat field with service point at the far end. We had a great welcome from our host who gave us all the info we needed. Plenty of walking to be had and a great site for staying near Bishops Castle. Thank you (Belatedly!)

Delightfully idyllic

I really don't know where to start! Perhaps on arrival, where we were met at the gate by Bruce and Anne? We were a little late but they had waited for us, armed with local leaflets and warm smiles. We were directed to the biggest pitch we have ever seen where, whichever way you parked there is a view! ! This is a site made in heaven. Water, elsan, grey waste disposal, general waste and recycling are available together with hen and duck eggs (very reasonably priced). Anne usually has her homemade goat's cheese for sale but the goats had been a bit reluctant during our stay! The site is immaculate, there is even a designated 'dog walk' along one hedge. Our hosts' local knowledge is freely given which is invaluable. There is a lovely footpath into Bishop's Castle along the Shropshire Way The site is ideal for touring South Shropshire. We travelled about by bicycle and foot; there are some splendid trails and footpaths, with the Long Mynd not far away. The Kerry Ridgeway starts in the town; the views from this fantastic drover's path are magnificent the further you go. The village of Clun with it's ruined castle and very nice tea rooms is four miles down the road. Anne and Bruce deserve every success with this venture: we will definitely go back.

A fantastic peaceful well maintained location.

We were welcomed by Bruce when we arrived and he gave us loads of information about the site and surrounding area. The site is immaculate and there is lots of space for each of the 5 spots. A very quiet location but within a 20min walk to Bishops Castle via a number of fields with one stile we had to carry our dog over. Anne came over later and gave us a load of information on walks (including maps) and other details. If you are in the area this is definitely worth a stop.
