Beautiful quiet site with stream and super friendly owners

Castle Hill Farm
This site is in a great location for exploring all that Shropshire has to offer - short drives from most places which makes day trips easy . As a family of 2 adults and 3 children the site owners , Heather and Julian couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming . They have an adjacent field which had all the lambs in it ( April ) and a brook running on the other side of the site which made for very peaceful back ground noise . Access is absolutely fine for a van ( ours is 7 M ) or caravans . It's also beautifully maintained . This site is a real gem and we were fortunate enough to have the entire site to ourselves - probably because it has been so wet - we had the hard standing pitch which was perfect and sore soon dried out whilst we were there . We particularly loved the Hope Bowdler walk - a short drive and park up which leads you to endless paths and beautiful scenery. Also visited the Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd - climbing up to the waterfall was a highlight but lots of big circular walks from there we could have visited several times ( national Trust parking ). The Pound Inn at Leebotwood had lovely food - specialising in home made pies . Limited children's menu but ours were fine as had the pies and chose from the adults menu - also has outdoor children's area with okay ground and plenty of parking for vans - although you could walk here from the site. There was also a little farm shop just up from this pub selling local produce. Ludlow Castle was also a great day out - plus animal market there and a great place to stroll round with artisan shops and open market . Don't miss this ! Over all this CL is definitely worth a visit - there were also chickens and Heather and Julian were wonderful with our children - helping them feed the chickens and telling us about the history of their farm . We would definitely come back . Thankyou again Heather and Julian - we may well be back in the future !

Great site, great owners

Castle Hill Farm
Only stayed one night - deserved longer. Very peaceful gem of a site, in a good location. Heather and Julian went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful, well beyond what one would expect.

Outstanding Site

Castle Hill Farm
Who would have know that NASA has been incorrect all this time, the Sea of Tranquillity is not on the moon, it is here at Castle Hill Farm. My wife and I and the two dogs stayed for seven nights commencing the 10th March 23 and we had a superb week caravanning at this excellent site. I understand that reviews are very subjective but in our view every single aspect of this CL was top rate. We have stayed at a number of CL's over the past year and each was good in their own way but to us Castle Hill Farm seemed to have managed to amalgamate the very best of the other sites all together in one package. I could wax lyrically about; the location, the serenity, the walking, the site owners etc. etc. but my simple words would not do this little gem of a CL justice, the only way is to take a look for your selves.

Lovely peaceful stay

Castle Hill Farm
We stayed here for a few nights and it was beautifully peaceful. The field was large and we were able to choose where we pitched. When we were there lambs were in the adjoining field and we loved watching the gambling around, so sweet. The site was a ten minute drive from Carding Mill Valley and The Long Mynd, which was a lovely walk. We would happily stay here again, especially during lamb season, so entertaining.

8 Nights in early November at Castle Hill

Castle Hill Farm
Very much enjoyed our stay. Site very quiet and had it to ourselves for 6 nights out of 8 in November. Virgin reception was a couple of bars and worked well for us. Outlook from site is lovely but all in one direction due to a bank of trees, and at least one pitch is in front of others. To me the field looks long enough to have the pitches all in a line if the owners wanted to set it up that way. Owners very friendly. Toilet waste disposal is into a unit that is a conventional toilet but with no flush. In consequence I was confronted with some of the content of the previous waste disposal which required mine to flush it away. We expect to return.
