Very friendly and lovely location

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.

Upper Farm Gretton Shropshire July 2018

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.

Beautiful spot

Upper Farm is a quiet and peaceful site set in beautiful surroundings. The Rogers family are extremely friendly and keep the site in great order and the toilet and shower facilities are immaculate. The site is ideally placed for access to excellent walking in Carding Mill Valley, Long Mynd and surrounding area and there are delightful shops in the nearby lovely towns of Church Stretton, Much Wenlock and Shrewsbury. Within easy reach there are three coarse fishing lakes and plenty of wildlife to be seen with Red Kites often over the site. There are several good local pubs in the area with the Royal Oak in Cardington being just a short stroll away. I would definitely recommend this beautiful spot.

weekend break

This site is lovely and peaceful. Toilet block immaculate. People on site very friendly as was the owner Mrs Rogers. The narrow road up to site was a bit scary when cars came opposite way. We could not see sign to site so we went passed it and had to phone owner which was difficult turning round in a junction. We found sign on a post which I think it needs to go on sign in road. We will go again.

Sorry but not for us

We stayed here in November and after a bad journey arrived in the dark, there was no caravan and motorhome sign to be seen only a sign saying Upper Farm Camping Site and lots of caravans so we thought we were in the wrong place, I 'phoned the Rogers three times and got no answer. We looked around in the dark for 20 mins and then my husband went to the farm nearby (which we couldn't see at first as it was dark) and we were told we were in the right place and the cl didn't have hard standing which we had booked so we parked up amongst all the caravans and decided to look round in the morning. The cl is opposite and is very small and can only take two units. I can see this place might appeal to some people but sadly not us. We have two large dogs and the lane to get in and out of was really muddy all the time we were there from the all farm vehicles, we have a shower for the dogs which we use but have never had to use it every day so this wasn't enjoyable for us or the dogs, the farmer was cutting the hedges so that made it a no go area re one of the dogs getting a thorn embedded in his paw, we had to walk the bikes along so as not to get a puncture. I think it is very misleading advertising hard standing when in fact you are not staying on a cl at all you are with many static caravans. We saw Mr Rogers a couple of times and he waved but other than that no one bothered us which we like, OH dropped the money off to Mrs Rogers who was very business like. We cycled to Church Stretton a few times, lovely tea room called Beryl's down a small alley which did lovely snacks and cakes, caught the train to various places including Ludlow which we really like, we ate in a fantastic vegetarian place, sorry can't remember the name. BTW we did finally find the cl site sign at the end of the lane. I will point out that we weren't the only ones who found it very misleading re calling it a cl as there were others on site who had the same problem.
