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.

Beautiful site and location

Firs Cottage
What a lovely CL and very friendly owners Brian and Alison - beautiful surroundings and so tranquil. The CL is immaculate and the location is great for exploring the Shropshire countryside - really nice walk into Much Wenlock (courtesy of a map provided by Brian), great for dogs as there are no stiles to tackle. Will aim to stay longer next time as there is more to explore.

All is well with the world.

Firs Cottage
Thank you to Brian and Alison for providing a place of beauty, a place that delivered tranquillity alongside the birdsong. Their attention to detail was second to none. Each pitch was laid out perfectly with careful planning. Recycle bins, water taps that were in keeping with the surrounding area and a well informed notice board. A site that we will return to next year with out a doubt. Enjoyed every minute.

First visit to this CL but not to the general area as we have visited Shropshire often. Welcoming and helpful owners. The site is very well laid out, immaculately kept and very pretty. Enjoyed our stay and would be happy to visit again.

A Little Gem

Firs Cottage
Stayed here for three nights after reading wonderful reviews. We were certainly not disappointed from the minute we arrived to a warm and friendly welcome from Brian and Alison. The previous reviews say it all and we can only second everything they say. A lovely area to explore from here. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Anything you need just ask. We will return.

Beautiful, spacious CL.

Firs Cottage
Alison and Brian have a beautiful CL which they obviously work hard keeping all the gardens in the site well manicured. The welcome and information was first class and all the pitches are level and pristine having there own water supply together with waste and recycling bins. A credit to them both. Only down side is that there are only two footpaths from the site a third one which leads onto a main footpath has been closed for the past 8yrs. The nearest access to this long distance footpath is now a mile down the busy main road with no footpaths. Alison and Brian are obviously active in the local community campaigning for new footpaths to be opened so hopefully things may change in the future. However thanks for a lovely 4 night stay. Paul and Eileen.
