Why stay here ...
An award-winning caravan site in the beautiful lake-lands of Shropshire. Voted ‘Best Small Site’ in the UK by readers of ‘Practical Caravan’ magazine in 2014, 2013 and 2012. Caravan Club "CL of the Year" 2007. Regional winner 2006. This family-run site was established in 1982 and is on a quiet field with easy access on a former farm.
Featured in the Club Magazine in February 2005 with the following praise: "a nice CL from which to marvel... spacious... hook-ups... woodland walkies track... information packs for newcomers... Great Site, lovely location and always a warm welcome..." The owners are active caravanners and Club members in their own right.
Ellesmere is a friendly little Saxon market town in the middle of Shropshire's beautiful Lake District. It marks the junction of the rural Shropshire Union and Llangollen Canals. The CL enjoys pleasant panoramic views across a wide expanse of green gently rolling hills and on a clear day you can see 9 counties.
A good base for a short stay or longer holiday. The CL is just 2 miles from North Wales and within 20 minutes to about an hour you could be at one of three UNESCO World Heritage Sites or numerous castles, historic houses and National Trust properties. Birch Hill is on one of the main Land's End to John o'Groats cycle routes and Ellesmere is a lovely spot for country walks and bird-watching, especially around the Meres.
The site is located over 200 metres up a private drive. It is discretely away from the public road with pitches in sight of the farm, which is in a pleasant, safe, rural back-water. Access for caravans is good, with wide gateways and a Tarmac drive. The drive is about a quarter of a mile from the lane, which reinforces the feeling of a quiet secluded site. Birch Hill is close enough to a quiet 'A' Road to give easy access, but far enough to be away from road noise.
