Why stay here ...

Little Netherton is in the tiny hamlet of Netherton attached to Highley. The CL is located in the quiet Netherton Lane with the large grassed site overlooking open fields. It's very good for bird watching and lots of extremely silly pheasants wander around. Owls can be heard hooting at night but not guaranteed. Steam trains on the nearby Severn Valley Railway are heard working hard and whistling for the many country farm crossings.

We are in an ideal location for exploring the pretty part of the Severn Valley with many nearby attractions especially the Severn Valley Railway. Half a mile from our site is Highley Station where regular steam trains run to the beautiful hill town of Bridgnorth, the lovely Georgian town of Bewdley and into Kidderminster. A day rover and family ticket offers excellent value for money for a day out avoiding the hassle of parking in towns.

Close by for walking and cycling is the beautiful Severn Valley Country Park on the sites of Highley and Alveley Collieries, a cycle and pedestrian bridge crosses the river linking the two parts. The River Severn has a good footpath in either direction also nearby is the Wyre Forest with its Go Ape aerial adventure. Cycle route 45 follows the railway to Hampton Loade then onto Bridgnorth in the opposite direction to Bewdley via Arley and the Wyre Forest but be prepared for the hills.

By car Bridgnorth and Bewdley are 8 miles away in opposite directions, Cleobury Mortimer 7 miles, Clee Hill 13 miles, Much Wenlock and Ironbridge 16 miles, Ludlow 19 miles, Black Country Museum in Dudley 25 miles and Shrewsbury 30 miles. On top of all this is the West Midlands Safari Park at Bewdley.

There's fishing, golf and plenty of local pubs for meals, two small supermarkets and a good butchers in Highley. Busses are hourly to Bridgnorth and Bewdley.

Having preferred staying on CLs ourselves in our motorhome we look foward to welcoming you on ours.

For 7 night stays pay for 6 nights.

10amp electricity - Please follow directions listed to avoid grounding van on the slope at the entrance to the CL - If you have a larger caravan please disuss entering the site at the time of booking with the owner.

Great place to stay

We are just back from a 7 night stay and had a fantastic time. The kids especially enjoyed the chickens and the domesticated moorhen who loved to hang out by the caravan! There is also a very friendly dog called Finch who likes to come and say hello but he is no bother whatsoever. John, the owner, was more than helpful throughout, often available for snippets of info or just a bit of a chat. We enjoyed cycling, walks, lovely dinner at the Ship Inn on the banks of the Severn and visits to nearby Bridgnorth and Bewdley. We also had a day out at the Blist Hill living museum at Ironbridge. Really had a good and interesting week. One point of note, especially for those towing, is care is needed both entering and exiting the property. It’s a short, steep turn to the left that suddenly appears on the corner. It was no great problem though. John was more than helpful in getting us in and out but care is needed and a steady approach up the hill on Netherton Lane is needed. Would definitely recommend this site for a quiet, peaceful time away and would certainly like to return in the future. Thanks for having us.

Very warm welcome

Very accommodating site, good communication with the owner John who is very happy to advise on local information, he produced a map and takeaway menu for us. We stayed 7 nights. Open countryside from all 5 pitches, mown field, lots of birds around and sheep and horses in field opposite site. Very easy access on quiet lanes to River Severn and railway, walks and cycling direct from site although it is in Shropshire Hills. We cycled along Route 45 to Bridgnorth and returned on the roads, nice ride. We also walked along the River from the site and into Wyre Forest, lovely tracks throughout. Great Butcher and farm shop in village, lovely scotch eggs, bread rolls and ice cream. While we were there the neighbouring farm had a few periods when the peace on site was disturbed but it was not prolonged.

Great views and very welcoming site

Lovely CL with great view across the fields, sheep & horses so relaxing to watch them. Site owner John met us on arrival and was very helpful throughout our visit, very knowledgeable of the local area. Highley station a short walk away and the Steam train Engine house which is well worth a visit. Lots of walks around the area and nice lanes and off road tracks to cycle around.

Great place to stay

We spent 4 nights here. The sun shone but we managed to find some much appreciated shade on our pitch. We overlooked fields with horses and sheep - very peaceful. And of course we had Finch the Collie and his friend/adversary the Cockerel. John and Van are very good hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We spent our time traveling on the train or walking so did not need to take out the Motor Home. The Engine Shed near Highley Station is well worth a visit. It included a tour of King George VI's carriage specially made for him in the War where he had conferences with Churchill and other War Leaders. On the train we bought a Rover ticket so we could hop on and hop off. It is cheaper to buy before you go. We also used the local shops to replenish our stores and visited a Pub or two! If we came to this area again we would certainly come here.
