Peace and quiet but pleanty to see and do

A lovely site with friendly owners. The only downside is the access which is through very narrow lanes. Although longer we found the route from Longville slightly better rather than that from Leebotwood on the A49. Once there it is ideal for those wanting a quiet stay but it is also near to Church Stretton, Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury, Attingham (National Trust) and Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd (National Trust) - there is no shortage of things to do for a short break. Blocks required but ground reasonably firm, access to the field can be from the driveway restricting the amount of time on grass. No doubt we will return.

Can hear a pin drop

We've just returned from a long weekend, absolute bliss! Owners very friendly and welcoming and leave you to it once they've checked your ok but are there if you need them. Directions good. Don't do as we did and opt for a possible short cut - some very narrow lanes with steep inclines. Site on an a gradual incline so need blocks. double EHU's at 2 points around field. Fresh water point situated in among the hedgerow, took us a while to find it. Waste and rubbish on opposite side of field. Only one recycling box so we took ours back home with us as we didn't want to overflow the box there. The peace and tranquility is idyllic and the scenery well you couldn't get bored looking at the scenery - stunning. The only noise you hear is that of the occasional cow mo-ing, sheep ba-ing and in the distance the occasional sound of a tractor or combine. Literally we could just hear the sheep and birds and at one point it was that quiet we could hear the farmers cows chomping on the grass - can't get more quiet than that! Lovely meal at the pub about a mile away - Royal Oak. Saturday nights we were told you need to pre-book as they get full and there are only four tables outside in the small cobbled courtyard - luckily it was a lovely summers evening so we were able to eat outside. Food is very good and a testament if in the middle of nowhere it's full. Nearest shops of any kind are in Church Stretton which is 6.5 miles away on a pleasant weaving B road with lots of stunning scenery. This is a really beautiful part of the country, it surprised us as we weren't expecting it to be so green and under developed. oh and we had the added bonus of the Red Arrows flying low and slow over us on the Sunday perhaps on their way to a show and then low and behold they returned on Monday to give us a repeat performance on their way home! We also saw two aerobatic by-planes on their way somewhere and they gave an impromptu barrel roll and loop - this happened both days too. We hope to return and plan to stay longer next time to enjoy the full beauty of the surrounding area. Thank you Mr / s Evans for a lovely stay.

Peaceful and beautiful

This is a lovely CL in a spacious sloping field with far reaching views towards Wenlock Edge. Cardingmill Valley and Caer Caradoc are nearby. Definitely recommended NB if approaching from the North, and following the directions given, pass through Cardington before turning left for your final approach towards the site. We turned left before Cardington which led me to do a fairly testing 3 point turn with the caravan.

Peace and Quiet.

Lovely large field. Slightly sloping but still able to put the awning up. Great views from our position at the top of the field. The owners are really nice people, friendly and helpful. We followed the directions given at the end of a 270 mile drive. The last 2.75 miles were single track with only passing places suitable fo 2 cars to pass. Did not meet anyone. As I was concerned about the return trip the owner Mrs Evans kindly offered to drive on ahead of me down the single track. A very kind gesture but in the event our neighbours were going out that morning and carried out that duty. Only met one car. There is very little traffic. We stayed 9 nights 16th to the 25th of April.

Fabulous Site

We stayed here for five days. The road access was very narrow but well worth the beautiful view and peace, warm welcome. We loved this site, sometimes you could hear a pin drop it was so peaceful. Just the sound of sheep and birds, what more could you want. Lovely walks for our dog. The Royal Oak at Carrington, one of the oldest pubs was a real gem. Sunday lunch was just like eating at home, fabulous. They were also dog friendly. Will return to this site loved Shropshire.
