Peace and beauty, away from it all

Chapel Lawn Farm
This is a tranquil site in a peaceful valley which feels miles from anywhere. The field has plenty of space, and the picnic table for each site is a lovely touch. There are fabulous views across the valley, and lots of sheep and cattle around. The farmhouse is a little way away, in the tiny village, but James visits the site from time to time to see that all is well. He suggests using his wifi outside his back door, but I could not pick it up. The grass cuttings are not collected, so the caravan needs regular sweeping. The only downside was the toilet emptying point, which is a septic tank with a metal grid covering: easy to drop things in besides your waste, which does not disappear. The local lanes are steep and winding, leading to tiny hamlets. The tiny town of Clun seems like a heaving metropolis, and has a mobile signal and cafes with wifi. We also visited Kington (a bit dilapidated, but with an excellent museum), Presteigne (Hampstead just inside Wales) and Knighton (large Co-Op). Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Hereford are not too far away if you are longing for the bright lights.

Tranquil site

Chapel Lawn Farm
Stayed here as an overnight stop on our Shropshire tour recently. Arrived in torrential rain to a site that although grass was well drained and accessible. The site is about 300m from the farm but when you arrive there is an information board with details of absolutely everything you need to know along with contact details for James. Even with the rain the site was tranquil with countryside views all around and a stream running through the site which must be lovely on a warm, dry day. Picnic benches around the site were a very nice touch. Great nights sleep without the sound of traffic. Woke up to a lovely view of the stream and fields. Despite the heavy rain on the previous night we drove off the site easily. James was very friendly and clearly proud of the site and its location. Would highly recommend Denise

Just right

Chapel Lawn Farm
We stayed here for a weekend earlier in the summer, what an absolutely fantastic site! We were very lucky with the weather so all the kids and dogs spent most of the time playing in the pretty stream which ran along side us. This is what camping should be like, peaceful, beautiful scenery and lots of space all at a very reasonable price. Will definitely be back!

Beautiful scenery and very peaceful.

This site is really lovely, its a nice field with trees and a stream to one side. Picnic benches are a welcome addition. We levelled the van easily. I believe there are toilets near the farmhouse which is a short stroll up a quiet country lane, we didn't need to use them however. As stated in other reviews, there are no local shops etc, this suited us as we were looking for peace and quiet. We went to Tuffins supermarket in Craven Arms which has all the supplies you could need. There are comprehensive instructions in the field and leaflets for local attractions. My husband met the owner but other than that we were left alone to enjoy the scenery which is exactly what we wanted.

Pleasant site in middle of nowhere

Chapel Lawn Farm
A proper CL this, a field next to a stream, with the regulation 5 pitches, each with electric hookup. Owner has added a picnic table for each pitch also. Set in a beautiful peaceful valley. Do be aware that that's it - be sure to bring everything with you, if you're hoping to stroll to the village shop for a pint of milk, you'll be out of luck- nearest village is Bucknell, 3 miles or so away. But if it's peace and quiet you're after, this is the place.
