Why stay here ...

Alison & Brian Rowe offer you a warm welcome to Firs Cottage CL, exclusively for adults. A tranquil site set in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, next to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of Wenlock Edge. Situated at the base of the Edge we have abundant bird life and stunning countryside to walk in straight from the site or a half mile drive away is a National Trust car park for Wenlock Edge. Walk along Wenlock Edge in May and you will see wild garlic carpeting the slopes. Views from the top are breathtaking with The Wrekin and Long Mynd in the distance.

The site backs on to a disused railway which was once the Wenlock to Craven Arms branch line. With its Victorian stone bridge a feature of the CL.

The site is ideal for walkers and nature lovers with the birds making the most of our bird boxes and feeders. Wake up to the dawn chorus. Take advantage of our information hut with wildlife books to borrow and leaflets about walks and local attractions.

We are only 2 miles from the medieval market town of Much Wenlock with its independent shops, pubs, restaurants, Abbey ruins and the best butchers for miles around.

Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale are only 9 miles away with their excellent museums and beautiful Bridgnorth the same distance where you can board a steam train on the Severn Valley Railway.

Historic Shrewsbury is 12 miles and Ludlow 18 miles.

All pitches are fully serviced, hard standing, 16 amp EHU with a recycling and waste bin on each pitch and a long grey waste hose to borrow.

There's so much to see and do that we're sure you'll back for another visit.

We hope to see you soon.

Best so far!

What a beautiful site ! Brain and Alison have done such an excellent job since taking over the property and site and it just ouzes quality throughout! Excellent hard standings for 5 motorhomes and I think 1 could even accomodate a small car at a push. Each slot had its own hook up and water supply and you could run your grey waste hose into the hedge at the back if you wanted. Also had pretty larch lap bins to each slot with general and recycling waste. The hook up was excellent and kept the van lovely and warm throughout our stay. We bought our fire pit and logs to use and got that going a couple of times and Brian even came over to say that we could use some of his extensive log store if we ran out! Its about a 2 mile walk into Much Wenlock but you have to risk walking on the very busy main road. The alternative is crossing the disused railway bridge and heading up hill and follow the walking trail that does have signposts if you look out for them. Cold crips days perfect site for stretching your legs with a flask of something hot. This site has just about everything you need for your stay and we, as I write, we have just booked for the end of March it is that good of a site !!!!!

A wonderful CL

We have just returned from an eight day holiday at Firs Cottage which is an immaculately maintained CL with very welcoming owners, Brian and Alison, who are very keen to do everything to ensure you enjoy your stay. As has been mentioned by other reviewers it is a real bonus to have water in addition to EHU at each pitch. The individual rubbish and recycling bins have been beautifully made to blend in with the surroundings. Some pitches do slope but the owners have very thoughtfully supplied wooden blocks should they be needed. This was our first visit to the area and we have been very impressed. Much Wenlock is famous for holding the first modern Olympiad and the museum/tourist information centre provide a very good service. Church Stretton is well worth visiting and a short distance away is the Ironbridge, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Excellent CL

This is an excellent CL. As you approach the site it is well signposted and as you enter through the gates you can see that the owners take great pride in their site as it is immaculate. Brian and Alison give you a very warm and friendly welcome and you can put your van on any available pitch, all of which have water and electric. A nice added touch, during the current pandemic, is the provision of bins to each pitch, which limits the need to use the communal bin. Each pitch has its own lovely piece of lawn as you step outside your van where you can sit and watch the many visiting birds. Brian and Alison are very knowledgeable about the area, which has some lovely places to visit if you want to leave the peace and quiet of the site. We have visited the site on numerous occasions and stayed on all the pitches and have never had an issue with a TV signal. Thank you for another lovely holiday and we will see you again next year.

Lovely little CL for a few days

Back from a lovely few days at Firs Cottage CL near Much Wenlock, Shropshire. A lovely clean, tidy, quiet site. All good sized, fully serviced pitches including ehu, water and waste bins so didn’t have to touch any shared service points. Lovely gardens, views and birds. We were here in our motorhome and only needed minimal levelling. We had to point the van into the hedge because its habitation door is behind the driver on the rhs to face our bit of lawn. Would rather have faced the garden area. Whilst we were there we had no tv signal on our omnidirectional arial! I suspect it was caused by the overhead electricity cables. Tv works perfectly now we're home. Despite having to leave early it was a lovely few days.

Lovely CL excellent site

My husband and I spent three very pleasant nights at this lovely CL. We were received with lots of information and with a very friendly manner by the owner Brian when we arrived. The site is extremely well presented and immaculately maintained. Very peaceful and no obtrusive street lighting to keep you awake at night. For us with two very energetic dogs the location was great. Good walking along bridleways and across fields to Much Wenlock, maybe 3 miles or so away. The views of the unspoilt countryside were a treat. Much Wenlock itself is a beautiful small town with some nice little cafes and shops. Surprisingly uncrowded even though this was August. Even the National Trust car park in the town, although small, would have had space for our Motorhome had we chosen to drive in rather than walk. A lovely stay. Highly recommended. Thank you.
