Why stay here ...

Woodville is a quiet campsite located in an area of outstanding natural beauty within the Shropshire hills. It backs onto the stunning Earls Hill Nature reserve and Pontesford hill. The site is located on a large field and each pitch has access to electric, water and grey waste points. There is also plenty of space for awnings. Children and dogs are both welcome throughout the year.

Woodville is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, with many walks to be taken direct from the site. Within walking distance is the village of Pontesbury, which has a local bakery/butcher, a supermarket, restaurants and pubs.

The historic market town of Shrewsbury is a short drive away by car or there is a bus service located close to the site. We are near to several industrial and agricultural heritage centres such as Ironbridge, Bridgnorth and the market towns of Much Wenlock, Ludlow and those across the border to Wales.

The site is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, ideal for walking.

Shrewsbury is a short drive away and the National Flower Show is held here every year.

Welshpool is also a short drive and plays host to the famous steam railway.

Fist time with the club and 2024

Woodville
Lovely welcome, great little site, good clean amenities. Lovely village made to feel very welcome by all in the village.We will be back. Thank you again David and Sarah for such a welcome. First time of using a site charging for electric as you go by coin machine but no problem. We used £5.10 for the whole weekend and we used electric kettle and the fan heater at times just to see how costing would work out and more than happy to pay going forward its only fair that you pay fir what you choose to use. See you again after my op. Xx

Tranquility is assured but not everything is ok

Woodville
Spent 4 nights here last week and enjoyed our stay. This is a small CL site with 5 spacious pitches all fully serviced. On arrival getting to the site was up a narrow lane with poorly edged road service and large potholes. I should imagine in a large Moho it would be a struggle. Nothing was mentioned when booking but I had noticed on another review it was mentioned, but we thought we would give it a try. We got a really warm, cheery welcome from the host, who gave us a file full of site details, contact number and places of interest, a brilliant idea. All the Pitches are hard standing, slighty uneven, but nothing too dramatic. The are 2 toilets/shower rooms which were clean at all times. One was a little more tired than the other with damp and some mold. On booking I asked what the signal was like and was told it was ok, some people get a signal some don't. We parked on 2 separate piches and sadly the signal for both the TV and my mobile was very poor. We have a ee 4G booster but it didn't help at all. All electric is via a metre which takes £1 and £2 pound coins so remember to take change. I suppose the question is would we return..................maybe

Wonderful site

Woodville
A lovely little CL. Wonderful walks and a nice little village with a great butchers. Great bus link to Shrewsbury Dave and Sarah very kindly cut the hedges down the lane to the site which was a really nice gesture as we were a big van. Lovely couple whom were very helpful. Unfortunately only stayed 1 night due to circumstances but will definitely stay again.

Peaceful but large outfits beware!

Woodville
Just spent a week at this site. The good points are that it is extremely peaceful, with no noise whatsoever. The owner was very friendly and helpful, especially on arrival when our motor mover stopped working and he went out of his way to help get us onto the pitch. As mentioned in other reviews, he hands you a comprehensive information folder and gives lots of useful local information, which is a nice touch. Two toilets and showers which are spacious and clean. However, the approach lane to the site is a very narrow track, especially with an 8ft wide twin-axle van. As you enter the actual site, the hedges narrow the space even more and we ended up with branches scraping all down the van, especially as you have to avoid rocks sticking out on the opposite side as well! I had asked if access was good and was told it was, but it was nerve racking going back out of the site when we left. I always check if access is good when I research a site, so in the interest of fairness and helping future visitors, I really wanted to point out how tight this site approach is for larger vans.

Amazing Little Site

Woodville
Amazing site in a great location with transport links into Shrewsbury if required. This is the most peaceful site I’ve ever been on and thoroughly recommend if you’re looking for some peace and tranquility. The instructions on the web page are spot on, I just wish the club would give owners bigger signs, as they are easily missed. Sarah and David were lovely hosts, they weren’t on site when we arrived, as we were earlier than expected, however Sarah replied to my email and advised they would see us on their return, which they did. They have done amazing little info packs for each pitch, which were exceptionally useful, they include menus for the local pubs etc, bus time tables. Pitches and the grounds are very well kept, and I love the picnic benches beside each pitch, it’s a great idea to have this. Facilities on the site are first class and spotlessly clean, I’ve never used a pay as you go meter before for electric hookup, definitely think this is the way to go, as it’s good to see the costings. We walked into the near by village and visited the Nags head pub I’d say a good 15 min leisurely walk. Definitely recommend and if you have a pooch it’s dog friendly too. Would definitely recommend the site and it’s hosts, and we will definitely return again
