Why stay here ...

This site now offers WI-FI. 

Upper Duffryn CL is in a very peaceful location on an organic working farm in the Clun Forest area of South Shropshire. It is situated by the River Clun in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The site itself is easily accessible and is flat and mowed regularly, with five electric hook-ups and space for awnings. 

There are many excellent walks in the vicinity including Offa's Dyke (just 1.5 miles away), The Jack Mytton Way and The Shropshire Way, and other walks starting directly from the site. There are also annual walking festivals in the local colourful country towns of Clun and Bishop's Castle. Cyclists are also well catered for and routes are available locally around the quiet and often traffic free roads.

Ludlow is a short drive away for those who enjoy the food festivals (May and September) and the regular farmers markets. There are numerous castles and hill forts in the area, including Powys Castle, Clun, Stokesay Court and Bury Ditches Hill Fort. Blists Hill Victorian Town is about an hour's drive away and is one of the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums and is a fascinating place to find out about Victorian times. The Heart of Wales Railway line runs 128 miles between Shrewsbury and Swansea and there are stations nearby at Knighton and Knucklas.

There is a pub and Village within 1.5 miles of our CL.

The area of the CL is currently being extended (2021).

Lovely Area and people

Upper Duffryn
Stayed on the CL for eight nights at the end of September very easy to set up and a warm welcome from Delphine a lovely lady , the CL is situated in a beautiful area its a short ride down to Clun from which there are many walks as there is also from offsite. We were a bit dubious about traveling around too much as we struggled to find a petrol station with any diesel but we still really enjoyed the break and would certainly return again thank you Delphine and Ted,

Peaceful, well run CL.

Upper Duffryn
If you want a “Get away from it all “ location, then this is a place for you! Admittedly there is no tv signal available, but wi-fi is provided. Delphine has developed a little haven of peace and tranquillity. The surrounding area provides ample walking opportunities such as the Offas Dyke , Shropshire Way or the Jack Mytton Way close by. The lanes nearby are so quiet, that they alone can form good walking circuits. (One walk we did taking in about 5 miles of lane, and only 2 vehicles passed us!) Clun nearby is worth a visit, and if you have the inclination, driving around the glorious Shropshire countryside can provide small towns and villages to investigate. One reviewer made a “tongue in cheek “comment that Upper Dyffryn should be kept a secret , l agree on the one hand, but it has to be put on the list of must does!

A gem of a place.

Upper Duffryn
We’ve just spent 6 nights at Upper Duffryn Farm. The site is beautifully located in the valley with glorious views from each pitch. The area is well maintained, very good facilities and spotlessly clean. Delphine gave us a warm welcome and is most helpful sharing local knowledge. It’s a very quiet and tranquil spot, beautifully located on the stream, nestling in the valley. We heard the owls hooting at night and enjoyed many miles of fabulous walking. It was lambing season which made it even more special. We booked for 4 nights and stayed for 6 and we’re tempted to stay longer. What a gem of a place. Thank you, Delphine.

A special place in spectacular surroundings

Upper Duffryn
What a lovely break we had, thanks to Delphine, who welcomed us and showed us maps of local walks and proudly showed us her lovely little site. The waste and recycling facilities we perfectly placed for all and very well organised and levelled. There was plenty of space between the pitches, which allowed us to position our outfit to make the most of the evening sun and to be ideally placed to share adjoining space with our daughter's van. Our grandchildren were in the river soon after we arrived and loved the freedom to be safe so close to the van. We had the most wonderful walks up the valley and one day walked back from Clun over the ridge and down into Upper Duffryn. We sat on Offa's Dyke up near Spring Hill farm on the way. We found Clun a convenient place to pick up essentials and even found the White Horse was open for it's home brewed ales in the garden at the rear. A coffee in the Card Shop cafe along with it's legendary carrot cake with marscaponi cheese topping was a real treat and so too was a coffee and snack at The Maltings. Everyone we met locally was happy and welcoming. We would prefer to keep this site a secret so it doesn't get overbooked but that's not fair on those who have yet to visit the area. We would recommend this site 100% Scott and Toni

Great CL site

Upper Duffryn
We arrived on a Tues & left on the Friday, the only regret was that we didn't book for longer. The site is in a beautiful location, whilst a bit narrow on some of the lanes into the site, it's well worth the drive there. We met my brother & his wife there in their Motorhome & was able to park opposite them. Delphine welcomed us with a folder full of maps, local things to do & where the nearest pubs & eateries are. She told us if there's anything we need just to let her know at the farmhouse, a lovely lady & extremely friendly & welcoming host. My brother & I went out & about on our Mountain Bikes, while the girls took the dogs out on walks, the surrounding countryside is stunning incl Offa's Dyke, which is quite a steep climb on the bikes, but Wow, once you're up there you can see for miles. We have already rebooked to go back in October which we can't wait for, would highly, highly recommend, as it's the nicest CL site we have stayed on, so a big thankyou to Delphine for making our stay so enjoyable. Ken & Debbie.
