This was our first ever trip away in our caravan which we had purchased the week before. We have family in the area so decided that this would be our best first trial outing. Communication with the owner on booking was very good. on arrival we were pleasantly surprised with how clean and tidy the site was as well as having good pitches. We haven’t been away in a touring caravan before but we were delighted with Upper Farm as soon as we pulled up. The on-site amenities are great.The toilet and shower are very clean and well maintained. As are the grounds.We had our dogs with us so it was great to have somewhere to walk them. It is on a working Farm but this In no way interfered with our enjoyment of the weekend.we found it quiet and peaceful with some lovely views from the fields.We are both from the country so enjoyed hearing the sounds round and about. If you want a small site that is quiet and peaceful with welcoming hosts this is a definite must.we have already rebooked to return again.
We stayed here for 2 nights in Sept 2020. It is a quiet location although next to a working farm so, as you would expect, some tractor movement. The toilet and washroom (Shower in a wetroom) were exceptionally good and the whole site is well cared for and we didn't have any problems with dogs as reported by another reviewer. The pub (Royal Oak) is 20 mins walk away along a very quiet road and does good food- you will need to book as it is popular. There are some caravans in storage here, but very few are occupied and didn't affect our enjoyment of the site.
we stayed here with friends for a week recently. We were blessed with fantastic weather which made it wonderful as the setting of the CL is lovely with surrounding fields and beautiful scenery. There are wonderful walks and cycle routes to follow and Church Stretton is nearby. We also discovered a free tennis court next to village hall In Rushbury which we used several times. The CL is flat with hard standing, and the taps to fill up are close by the pitches. There is a friendly welcome from the owners who keep the site well mown and the shower and toilet block spotless. There are some narrow lanes to navigate to reach the site and generally these were quiet. We were unfortunate to meet a huge feed lorry on our journey in, which necessitated both motorhomes reversing into a field, however we accept that this is part and parcel of driving in a rural area where lorries have to visit farms. The nearby pub ( The Royal Oak) in Cardington does lovely food and we would highly recommend that. The two issues which prevented us giving this CL 5 stars was the phone/internet signal which could only be picked up at a few spots on the field, and some dog owners not picking up after their dogs which as a dog owner myself I find quite disgusting. When we came to pack up and leave we found that a dog from one of the seasonal vans (there are about 10-12) had poohed right on our electric cable. It was clear that this probably happened over several nights, and is totally unacceptable. Just because you can't see your dog poohing in the dark doesn't mean it isn't. This isn't a job for the CL owner it should be drummed into the dog owners that they will be asked to leave if they allow this to happen and do not clear up. There is no excuse. Having said that, this is definitely a CL we will return to due to its location and facilities.
We booked this site, staying on the CL, for Easter weekend. Fred was able to fit us in despite his having to get an electrician last minute to finish the hook-up. The site is connected to decent roads via a choice of narrow lanes but none were busy or too long. There are two very smart toilet/shower/wash rooms on the main site which we were able to use as well. We met up with the farmer (Fred) and some regular campers on the Saturday evening for a very sociable drink together – something which I have to admit we normally avoid! However, the company was very friendly with just three pitches on the CL at present. We certainly look forward to returning some time to stay on this working farm.
A super week enhanced by wonderful weather. This was our 29th year visiting the immediate area but our first visit to this site. There were several seasonal pitches further along the communal track but these did not affect the 5 CL pitches which all had hard standings and additional grass to the side and were spacious and easy to access. All caravans had the same view across the field. The residents of the seasonal caravans made you feel welcome and were helpful. We support the positive reviews included here. The friendly owners, farmhouse 100 yards up the road on the way to the site have gone out of their way to make this a very pleasant site. A toilet block far in excess of anything we have previously experienced on a CL- wet room standard, toilet, shower and wash basins made our stay even more enjoyable. With respect we remind visitors that this is a very rural area with working farms and narrow lanes. Will definitely visit again.
