Why stay here ...

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.

One of the best!

Nothing but good things to say about this perfect CL. We stayed for over a week and enjoyed the peace and tranquility, the walks and cycle rides direct from the site, the tremendous views and the friendliness of our host Delphine who gave us lots of advice on local walks and places to eat. We’ll definitely be back!

Just how a CL should be

Beautiful, peaceful little CL. We had it to ourselves for 3 nights and it was a complete delight. Great to have recycling boxes and a watertight box containing maps and local information. Delphine welcomed us shortly after our arrival and didn't disturb us again, although we knew we could call on her if needed. If you need a reminder about our green and pleasant land, this is the place to come.

Delightful.

Quite simply the best site we have ever stayed at. Had the place to ourselves the whole time. If it's peace and quiet you want, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this is the site for you. Owners made us very welcome and our two girls loved being lost in the middle of nowhere. It really is a gem and we definitely will return.

An excellent away-from-it-all site

This is a really delightful site, set deep in South Shropshire's beautiful countryside. It is well-placed for walking, especially along Offa's Dyke, and also surrounded by perfect cycling country if you like plenty of hills. Towing through Clun to get to the site can be a bit tight, but it is well worth it. We have been twice, most recently for four nights, and look forward to visiting again.

Easter 2017

Just returned from 6 lovely nights on this great little site. Level grass- very well maintained, clean and obviously cared-for. Beautiful peaceful surroundings- just the sound of the sheep and the little stream. Delphine is lovely! helpful, welcoming and very knowledgable about the local area & kindly lent me some maps. Great walking to be had nearby, and some good on and off road cycling too. It's really rural here; just a scattering of farms and small villages set in beautiful hilly wooded countryside and lanes- a proper relaxing spot; a get-away-from-it-all with the added benefit of no mobile phone signal! Decent local pubs serving good food and beer. A good base for exploring the surrounding countryside and sights. Highly recommended!
