Why stay here ...

Paul and Pat welcome you to The Elms for either a long weekend or for even a week.

There is plenty to explore. Oswestry is on the Welsh Borders and is a thriving border market town. For those who enjoy walking the Safari Sculpture Trail Offa's Dyke and The Shropshire Way are all a short drive away. Well worth a visit is Rodney's Pillar - the views from the top are outstanding.

For those who enjoy castles we have Chirk, Whittington and Powis Castle all close at hand.

Great little excellent value site

Greet on arrival by owner who couldn't be more helpful. Although site could need a little modernising, we could not have asked for more. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Owner presented us with a pack with local information which was very handy. He was always on hand without being intrusive. Very friendly. Would happily return.

great small site with very welcoming owner

We stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it. It is an easy walk into the village with a couple of pubs and a shop, or a longer walk into Oswestry. The owner was lovely had loads of information about the local area, bus routes etc. We would definitely come back

DO NOT USE THIS SITE

We arrived at this site and firstly our relatively new caravan ground out when negiotating the entrance to the driveway into the 'site'. There was a large ripped polytunnel to the left full of garbage and broken items. The roadway was very uneven and tonnes of aggragate was piled up. We passed a water sign with a hose piece tied up with a frayed piece of string. There was no drainage under where you fill your water so any spillage turned to mud under the barrell and dirtied everything. There was an area of caravan storage which the owner was extending. The small area where you camp was fully enclosed... no scenic views at all!! The chemical toilet disposal point had no running water.. just 3 watering cans for you to rinse out your toilet. Your electricity..you had to trail your cable over the rough aggragate that was the 'roadway'. There was a small trench dug out where you trailed the cable and some scaps of rubber to use to help protect the cable. There was a piece of plastic meshing on our pitch area which the owner picked up and slung it accross the grass out of tbe way and left there. It was bank holiday and other local sites were full so short of going home we were stuck there. As we were meeting friends in the area we did relunctantly stay. We awoke the next morning at 8.30 by the owners industrial digger which he used all weekend along with a roller and large dumper truck to extend his storage area. The caravan and our car got covered in fine grey dust. Great!!!!

GOOD VALUE SITE FOR A STOP OVER.

Firstly, as the title states, at the £10 a night we were charged, incl EHU, it is very good value for money. However as a quiet, peaceful spot to spend a few days away in the caravan, we found it to be not so suitable. There is some road noise and the view of the caravan storage area is not inspiring. Frustration was experienced in accessing the site as directions stated "1 mile from the roundabout". If, as we did, you set your trip meter and travel exactly 1 mile you overshoot the turn in and then find yourself in Whittington village having to turn around. (The lay-by turn in was measured the following day to be 0.7 of mile but the owner insisted it was 1 mile). Yes, you may have spotted the small sign saying Caravan Storage and CL, but by then it is far too late to rapidly slow down and do the 90 deg entry.

What a welcome

We booked onto this site for three days but were a bit concerned that the arrival time was stated as 1400 and we were only travelling from Chester. We decided to contact the owners to see if we could arrive early. Pat, the owner, explained that it was ok to arrive at 1200 and the 1400 was for campers who hadn't pre-booked. Upon arrival we were met by Paul who showed us to our pitch and helped us to back in to place. He then explained about the site and even provided us with a hand-written map of the area including the bus times, which leave outside the site on a frequent basis. We have visited many sites in our three years of travelling in a motorhome but we honestly think the welcome from Pat and Paul was one of the warmest we have had and we have no hesitation recommending this site to anyone who wishes to visit this area. The Happy Hobos
