Glebe Farm - Roman Villa built by English Heritage
Why stay here ...
Glebe Farm is set in the idyllic village of Wroxeter, 4 miles East of Shrewsbury on the B4380. In walking distance are the famous Roman Vineyard and the Wroxeter Roman City and also adjacent is Wroxeter Hotel. The site is very tranquil and sheltered, set on a small farm. The pitches are spacious on a large level area of field, which is actually a Roman scheduled monument in our ownership. There are views of the vineyard, the resident alpacas are alongside and views of the Wrekin, a local land mark.
Shrewsbury medieval town is some 4 miles away and is the birthplace of Charles Darwin. It is known as the town of flowers and the Dingle in the Quarry Park in the town centre was created by the famous gardener Percy Thrower. There are many individual shops along with the well known major stores. In August each year the Shrewsbury Flower Show is held in the Quarry Park which is second to Chelsea in size.
Some 4 miles East of Wroxeter is the UNISEF world heritage site of Ironbridge and there are some ten museums to visit in the Ironbridge Gorge.
The Wrekin, set in the Shropshire plain is an ideal walking hill and also the nearby South Shropshire Hills.
Nearby to the caravan site in Atcham is The National Trusts, Attingham Park and on many weekends the National Trust hold special events.
Nearby is the Severn Valley railway in Bridgnorth and the town is a lovely place to visit. Also nearby is Much Wenlock, the home of the modern day Olympic Games. It is a stunning town to visit with many quaint shops. Another beautiful town is Church Stretton, often called Little Switzerland because it is surrounded by hills. It has quaint shops very upmarket, also Ludlow a beautiful town and has its famous food festival with many Michelin star restaurants outside of London.
Wroxeter is only some one and a half to two hours from the Welsh coast. A base to stop on the way to the seaside or to stay for a countryside holiday in unique surroundings.
Now, Wroxeter itself also known as Roman Viroconium or Uriconium was the fourth largest Roman city in the United Kingdom. It is owned and managed by English Heritage, apart from the land of the Glebe Farm. Wroxeter was one of the first archaeological visitor attractions in the country. The site museum and audio tour reveal how Wroxeter worked in its heyday. In 2010 a project between English Heritage and Channel 4 saw a Roman town house built. A programme went out on the building called `ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY`.
The caravan park is close to the River Severn and many tourist attractions. It is on a cycle and walking route. Buses run from by the Museum to Shrewsbury, Ironbridge and Telford.
David and Christine Millington and family welcome you to their caravan park.
